We stayed in the Fannie Williams room on a Monday night. We had taken the tour, which was nice, but when I walked into the ladies' parlor, I swore I saw someone's shadow walk by the window, but when I looked, no one was there. We sat on the porch until bedtime, because the sounds of the bull frogs were so relaxing. We went to bed and nothing very eventful happened...until around 4am. I awoke to the sound of footsteps outside my door. The only other couple in the hotel was staying in the room across the hall, so I figured it was them ghost hunting. I couldn't go back to sleep, so I decided to get up and go to the bathroom. I realized that my footsteps did not sound the same as what I had heard nor was it as loud. I asked the people the next morning if they had gone into the hall around that time, and they said no, that you had gone to bed around midnight. I took pictures in the hall way that night before bed. As I was looking at the camera screen on my phone, I could see these "rods" flying through the air (there were no bugs that size inside). They were literally right in front of me! I tried taking pictures and caught a few, but these pictures don't do justice for what I could actually see! I've never seen anything like it. It looked like dragonflies w/o wings darting through the air.
The breakfast was good, and the owner sat with during breakfast and chit-chatted. He was very nice. Sadly, because we stayed on a Monday, the restaurant wasn't open, but I guess that'll give me another excuse to come back.
