The National House Inn
Location: 102 S Parkview, Marshall, MI 49068
Story: After renovations were made in 1976, ghostly activities were reported by employees and guests. There were multiple sightings of a ghostly woman in red floating through the halls. According to hauntedhouses.com, "It is a guess that she is perhaps from the 20th century, maybe a woman who lived in the apartments. She could have been somehow connected to or was involved in the dangerous activity of selling the booze and partying in the basement, which could've been a force in her death. Most booze came from mob connections. Other unsavory characters were also attracted to such black market activities. She could have been a 19th-century railroad traveler, a guest in the hotel, who met a bad end, and decided to stay at a place that she felt at home."
Location: 13747 Main St, Nahma, MI 49864
Story: The Nahma Inn says there are several stories about the resident ghost, though one thing everyone agrees on is that it is the spirit of Nell Fleming, “Miss Nell.” Miss Nell’s beau, Charlie Good, was the founder of the Bay de Noquet Lumber Company, and the most popular story says that after Charlie left her, she kept watch from a second-story window, waiting for his return. Her ghost is said to still be seen there, watching out the window for Charlie. Visitors who stay in “her” room often report that their things and even the bed are moved after they leave the room, even if just for a moment. Miss Nell is also known to organize things in the kitchen and rearrange objects when nobody is around! Patrons in the lounge have reported hearing footsteps and seeing glasses and dishes sliding off of tables.
