Pet Cemetery to Be Dug Up at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado – And You Thought It was Haunted Before

Stanley Hotel/Facebook

Just in time for Halloween like something out of a bad horror movie, officials from the Stanley Hotel have reveled plans to dig up the hotel’s infamous pet cemetery and move it to a new location to make room for a new wedding venue. Ghost hunters think it may be a bad idea! 

Not only will am I sure that it will be in the back of people’s minds that a paranormal version of Fido might interrupt their wedding, but the neighbors in the area are also worried about the noise the new wedding venue may cause.

But the neighbors aren’t the only ones worried… Believers in paranormal activity say the move could come with unintended consequences.

From the Coloradoan:

“Stirring up the bones of the dead” could kick a hornet’s nest of paranormal unrest, said a local psychic medium. And she’s not just talking about ghost dogs.

Construction accidents, delays and burst pipes could plague the project if spirits stuck “between this world and the other world” are disturbed, said Rosemary McArthur, known as “The Celtic Lady” who lives in Estes Park and was featured as a dog psychic on Animal Planet’s “Pit Boss.” This could be avoided if a psychic comes to help those animals make the transition, she said.

“They’ll pull the owners to them if the owners passed over and are unhappy,” McArthur said.


The Stanley, which inspired Stephan King to write “The Shining,” plans to hire people from a local cemetery to appropriately move the graves, and it’s uncertain when the project will break ground. The town is reviewing plans.
