ST. NICHOLAS HOTEL
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

The story of St. Nicholas Hotel.

St. Nicholas hotel is on a hill overlooking Cripple Creek, Colorado. When it was first built in the late nineteenth century, it was a hospital ran by the Sisters of Mercy. The hospital also was used as lodging for the Sisters and a school for children in the area during 1898.

The hospital throughout the years aided prospectors and families of the entire area and even expanded to include a mentally ill ward. However, of course, the mining boom came to an end and so did the need for the hospital. It finally closed its doors in the 1970ís.

It sat empty of quite awhile and then Noel and Denise Perran and other colleague, Susan Adelbush purchased, refurbished and created a unique hotel. It now has the same beautiful view it once had overlooking Cripple Creek complete with 15 guest rooms, antiques, exquisite linens and the elegance of days gone by.

Spending a night at the hospital turned hotel might not be elegant and peaceful as you might imagine. There are ghost lurking about! Many ghosts have been seen including nuns, children and even former patients of the mental ward. One that has been named Stinky because of the sewage smell he emits loves hiding around the back staircase. A few guests have seen a miner without an upper body in various locations throughout the hotel.

Stevey, however, is the most popular ghost. He is a small boy that enjoys stealing cigarettes and moving items around in the tavern.

You can visit this unique and ghostly hotel at 303 Third Street in Cripple Creek.
