Bolton Landing, New York
Located on scenic Lake George in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains,it is no wonder past guests return to the beauty of The Sagamore. Forinstance, The Trillium, the resort’s fine dining restaurant, isregularly visited by a couple who descend from the second floor andtake a seat in the restaurant’s reception room before departing. Theyare said to be among the hotel’s first guests during the 1880’s. At Mr.Brown’s, another of the resort’s dining outlets, the restaurant hasbeen visited by an apparition of a tall woman dressed in long, whiteevening attire with flowing sandy blond hair. One night the woman spoketo a prep cook, proceeded to walk toward him, then through him anddisappeared. The cook abruptly packed his things, quit his job andnever returned to the resort. www.thesagamore.com
