Stay Overnight In A 120-Year-Old Hotel That’s Said To Be Haunted At The Lowe Hotel In West Virginia
Have you ever had a paranormal experience? If you grew up in West Virginia, you may have — the Mountain State is full of
haunted places and spooky stories. If you want to experience one firsthand, just book a stay at one of our haunted hotels. The Lowe Hotel in Point Pleasant is especially full of ghostly tales.
The Historic Lowe Hotel is located in the heart of Point Pleasant, where it has been since 1901.
Back then, it was known as the Spencer Hotel (in honor of J.S. Spencer).
In 1929, the Lowe family purchased this property, and it was renamed.
These days, the hotel is owned by the Finley family, who are careful to preserve its historic charms.
The Lowe was once the epitome of high society and a place to come for entertainment and hospitality.
In the 1920s, it had an elegant dance hall. And although the stock market crash of 1929 changed things, it has always been an upscale place to stay.
If you've ever heard of this hotel, it has probably involved a ghost story or two.
There are so many spirits that have been spotted and sensed here, it's impossible to keep up.
The Lowe is said to be haunted by the ghost of a beautiful young lady dressed in a nightgown. She is most often spotted dancing to music that only she can hear.
In a suite on the third floor that overlooks the Ohio River, you might spot the spirit of Captain Jim, or Jimbo as he is often called. He has told several guests that he's waiting for "the boat" to arrive.
Many a guest and hotel employee has reported an eerie feeling of an unseen presence in a hallway or some of the rooms.
There's nothing quite as chilling as walking down the hallway alone but having the unmistakable feeling of being watched. And if you're walking down the second floor hall, listen closely for the sound of a squeaking tricycle wheel and a laughing young boy.
You could very well see the spirit of a former hotel maid or spot the figure of a man in a beard dressed in 1930s attire.
You might also not have a paranormal experience at all, of course, But even if you do, whatever haunts these halls is definitely not unfriendly or out for trouble.
The Historic Lowe Hotel is an important part of West Virginia's history.
Whether or not it's truly haunted, it's still a lovely place to stay.
