This Week in Haven
Reports from guests of strange events at the Mariner King have been increasing exponentially of late. This venerable Haven institution has long been rumored to be haunted, but recent encounters have been more vivid and terrifying than usual. Nick Gionet, proprietor of the hotel and restaurant since 1977 says he hasn't seen things this bad in over 25 years. "I remember those days," he shares quietly, "nobody could get a moments peace in here, it was almost as though the spirits who reside here were being tormented."
Things aren't usually this way, according to historians and ghost hunters alike the spirits here are mostly harmless and quiet. The most famous spirit thought to reside in the Mariner King is Rachel Wall, a known pirate who sailed the coasts through the 1780's. Although hanged as a pirate in Boston, her spirit allegedly returned to the coast of Maine to search for her husband, lost at sea. She is often seen watching longingly out the attic window for ships returning to port, and she is well known for sneaking into guest rooms and pilfering valuables while they sleep, but lately her spirit has been screaming for help throughout the halls and attic rooms. While these events defy explanation, guest are arriving in record numbers to experience the hotel in all its sordid splendor. Nick is doing his part by providing sleep masks and ear plugs free of charge to anyone looking for a good night's sleep, but says he hasn't had many takers. "I've never had so many ghost hunters staying here," he says, "but they're all getting their money's worth!"
