Hot Lake Hotel and Sanitarium: Vacation for the Dead
Built in Oregon in the late 1800s, Hot Lake Hotel was originally built as a vacation spot thanks to its ideal location near a natural hot springs, but was quickly purchased and converted into a sanitarium and hospital for the mentally ill. After a fire nearly destroyed the building, it was once again converted back into a hotel, but many believe parts of the sanitarium remained. Owners and guests at Hot Lake have reported hearing footsteps and voices throughout the hotel as well as seeing spectral individuals walking around the grounds. The last owners of the location also reported hearing music playing a lack thereof on the premises as well as screams and shouts coming from the areas that once served as a hospital.

According to the stories, the ghosts of the captain and flight engineer from 401 began to appear on various planes fitted with 401’s salvaged parts and, at times, were found interacting with members of the crew before vanishing.
