I was browsing my DVR this morning for something to watch and realized there were some new Ghost Hunters episodes recorded, and one of them was for Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island. Since I’m a native Michigander and have actually stayed at that resort, I had to watch the episode. I’m pretty sure the place is haunted. They caught several oddities on tape, including what sounded like a little girl’s voice.
It was interesting to see because, like I said, we stayed there. My husband goes to Mackinac once in a while for work. I went with him one time, and we stayed a night at Mission Point Resort. I don’t normally pick up on earth-bound spirits, so it really does not surprise me that I didn’t see or hear anything. It was interesting, however, that I was extremely physically uncomfortable staying there. In fact, I was so uncomfortable that we contacted a friend of a friend who works in high places at The Grand Hotel and changed hotels the next morning. From the moment we arrived at Mission Point, I didn’t like it. I felt claustrophobic in the room, and I don’t think I slept more than an hour total that night.
The Grand Hotel is beautiful, and I really enjoyed staying there. We were in a balcony room, but I can’t remember the name of the room. I took pictures of everything from the curtains blowing in the breeze to the lights on the bridge at night. I even had a chat with a ghost, which really surprised me. Though he did have good energy and had passed a long, long time ago.
I would love to go back to Mackinaw Island and take our son with us. If you’ve never been, it’s a beautiful little island that takes you back to a time before automobiles. All island traffic is either horse drawn carriages or bikes. It’s really cool. Starting with the ferry ride over, it’s a magical experience. When we do make it back there, I will not be staying at Mission Point. It may be more of a tourist attraction for Ghost Hunter fans, but I like it even less. I love St. Ignace, though. Maybe we’ll stay there and just take a ferry over for the day. 🙂
Until my next post,

Dear Rev. Sheri,
Hmm, I never thought of fairies; I guess I thought of them only being outside and not inside. That’s an interesting thought. 🙂
It sounds like what you’ve described could also be fairies. They are like extra guardian angels for plants, animals, children, and those who care for nature/kids. They can be great spirits to have around but can also be a tad mischevious. They are known to hide things on people they don’t like or even as a joke.
I’ve lived in a couple of haunted houses over my lifetime, too. My mom still remembers an incident that happened to both of us seeing a man in our house when I was in first grade (I think it was anyway.). Sometimes I think that incident was destiny because it seems to be the only thing that prevents her from thinking I’m completely crazy for what I do. 😉
The apartment we used to live in in Westminster MD had one or more ghosts. We lived on the top floor of an old house (circa 1925) and my husband saw a little girl run through a doorway one night (like a flash of her, he said) We often heard noises with no explanation and occasionally saw things moved around. Our cats would stare at what appeared to be thin air at something they could see. One night, when our son was about 2 yrs old (maybe 13 years ago; he doesn’t remember it) he was laying in his crib and he pointed up at the ceiling, smiled a big smile and said “I see, I see”. (personally, I think he saw an angel or relative that had passed on, but I’m not sure) One day I was fixing the clock in the kitchen and saw something out of the corner of my eye. I turned and looked down the hallway into the bedroom and distinctively saw a bright ball of light which quickly moved away behind the wall as I looked in its direction. I could probably tell you about a hundred incidents there (we lived there for 14 years), but the funny thing is, though it was really strange, I never really felt scared and I don’t think the presence was a bad one. I tried to get her to cross over to the other side, but I’m not sure if she went. I think she was attached to the house and the property.
Other people in the basement reported more scary things like things getting broken or smashed, feeling like they were being watched, but that never happened upstairs (thank God)
Now we live in a house in Taneytown, MD built in 1900, but I’ve never heard or felt anything here- it’s pretty quiet for having so much history. Yep, I definately believe in ghosts 🙂
