Located at North Cascade Ave. in Colorado Springs, CO.
The Hearthstone Inn, a three-story structure with 25 guest rooms, was originally two different houses that were connected together to form the inn. The Bemis house was built in 1885 and the Sumner house in 1900.
The Bemis house is rumored to be the site of a murder and suicide.
Poltergeist activity has been reported as well as the apparition of a little girl. Cold spots have been reported, light anomalies have been captured on film including mists, orbs, and streaks of light. Strange electrical disturbances such as lights dimming and flickering, and radios and tvs turning on and off "on their own" have been observed in the house. A number of individuals have reported personal experiences including being touched or shoved in the inn. EVP’s of moaning sounds have also been recorded.
Guests have reported that a mirror "floated" and then fell off a wall. A maid was locked in a closet and attributed the event to paranormal activities. One of the waiters at the Hearthstone has reported having pens stolen from an apron. Later, the pens were found attached to a curtain halfway up the wall.
The apparition of the little girl has been seen in various locations in both the Bemis and the Sumner houses. The owner of the inn reported that the little girl was once observed jumping on a bed in the middle of the night.
