Natural Bridge Hotel - Natural Bridge VA Real Haunted Places
- 15 Appledore Lane
- Natural Bridge, VA
Natural Bridge is part of a 157 acre parcel of land purchased by Thomas Jefferson in 1774. Renowned for its beautiful scenery, it was not long before the bridge became a popular destination for Jefferson’s personal guests and tourists. Jefferson built a two-room cabin to be used as a personal retreat, and in 1833 a new owner built the Forest Inn to accommodate the rising demand for lodging in the area. A resort was established in the 1880s and in 1890 it was expanded to include the site of the current hotel. Local legend holds that the former owner of the hotel lost his mind and killed his wife and children within its walls. Since that tragedy, visitors have been seeing apparitions of the man and his family inside The Natural Bridge Hotel.

I worked nights there for a year and a half. Its definitely haunted. Ask about “Mr. Hunter.” Most staff should know about him, but are probably encouraged not to say much.Posted 12/15/17
My daughter used to work as a maid for the hotel. They had cabins across the street on the hill that also belonged to Natural Bridge. She has come home many a time to tell me about chairs moving across the floors, windows banging etc while trying to clean the rooms for the next guests. It got so bad that the suoervisor started send at least 2 people to a room in that area.Posted 3/5/17
