We are always asked, “Is the Hacienda haunted?” We always answer that we have never seen any ghosts or felt anything but peace and good feelings at Hacienda Vargas. We’ve lived here for 12 years and have spent time in every square inch of the property at all times of day and night, but, maybe we’re just not meant to see!
Over the years, we have had several sightings of “guests” in a few of the rooms that were not the paying guests! For the most part, all the experiences have been of a benign nature. But the interesting part is that each instance has been very different – there has never been a central character, theme or specific resident, etc. that the experience can be tied to. There have been at least four reports to us and a few of them repeat guests that have had experiences on several occasions!
For those of you wondering, most of the sightings orexperiences have been located in our casitas, which are the suites in a separate building and there is absolutely no extra cost for any manifestations you may encounter!
On another note, if you aren’t lucky enough to run into a ghost at Hacienda Vargas, you should go on a ghost tour in nearby Old Town; a 90 minute, lantern lit adventure, searching for the lost souls who have made Old Town their eternal home. It’s lots of fun and you never know if you will have an actual sighting, see an appartion or catch some orbs on your camera!
