Manresa Castle, Port Townsend, Washington
The century-old Manresa Castle in Washington was designed to resemble a medieval castle. Completed in 1892, it was used as a vacation home and a training college. The castle is known for its excellent customer service and it is also popular for its ghostly residents.
There are reports that hotel’s rooms 302, 304 and 306 are frequented by two resident ghosts. There is reportedly a monk who hung himself in the castle’s attic. To this day, people can still hear the footsteps of the monk in the attic. The other ghost is that of a young lady who had been waiting for her beloved to return from war. When she heard the news that her beloved died in war, she threw herself out of the window and fell to her death.
In the café, which was once the chapel, drinking would spontaneously explode even when they are on the hands of servers. Empty glasses would also turn upside down on their own.
In 1925 an attorney bought the property and made it a vacation house for nuns who are teaching students in Seattle. However, this did not work out quite well and the castle became a training college for Jesuits. In 1968, the castle was converted into a hotel and was renamed the Manresa Castle.
