Playful Paranormals Haunt The Napa River Inn

NAPA VALLEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s enough to drive you to drink: There’s an inn in Napa Valley, California, where ghosts may be stealing the wine.

That’s the spooky news that happens at the Napa River Inn, which is said to be haunted by the ghosts of the original owners.

Supposedly, the spooks are responsible for making the lights flicker plus guests sometimes hear mysterious footsteps, especially around room 207 and 208, which is right above where owner Albert Hatt Jr. hung himself in the early 1900s.

Most of the ghostly goings-on are harmless but hotel director Lisa Koester says some guests have noticed that the ghosts will sometimes guzzle their vino when they’re not looking.

Still, Koester is an understanding soul.

In her words, “If I were a ghost I’d want to drink our wine too.”

To that end, she says the spirit-loving spooks have an open invitation after they tie one on to take naps in the parlor where there are lots of plushy velvet cushions.

Despite the risk of having your wine stolen by drunken ghosts, Koester says the rooms that are the most haunted are also the most popular.
