YOUR FAMILY: Heavenly Hauntings

There is possibly a special guest of Angel's Nest Bed & Breakfast who long ago checked in and never checked out

(Continued)

Dyer and her husband purchased the property in the early 1980s, looking to start a hospitality venture. They began renovating, repainting and re-landscaping, shaping the property into what is today a beautiful home and yard covering 3.5 acres. They divorced in 1995.

She continued on with business. The strangeness began, she said, one night as she was in her basement office doing paperwork. At first, the only sound emanating within the massive house was that of pencil lead scratching across Dyer’s business ledger.

But she began hearing something else, the sounds of what Dyer said were like someone in high heels walking across the wooden boards on the first floor.

“My first thought was, ‘Who is up there,’ and my second thought was, ‘How did they get in?’” Dyer said. “They had to be up to no good, and I am just furious.”

She said could hear the clicks going down the hallway to the different rooms and eventually to the living room.

“I was thinking they will leave soon,” Dyer said, believing her home was being burglarized and whoever was upstairs would take something and go. “I am not going to confront anyone.”

Dyer picked up a phone and called 911, telling the dispatcher what was going on upstairs. The dispatcher said she would send an officer. The dispatcher even had some fun with Dyer, making a spooky “Wooooooooo” sound over the phone.

Dyer began to dismiss the noise and suggest she must have been hearing things and that no officer was needed.

“What if no one is up there?” Dyer said she asked the police call taker, fearing some embarrassment. “She said, ‘That’s ridiculous, I’ll send an officer.’”

She said the walking sounds continued until a few minutes later, stopping when Dyer heard the front door’s keypad accessed and an officer enter. Of course, there was no one else inside and no sign that anyone had been.
