When i was in my late teens a friend of mine whom i recently had just met was from baker city.Myself and a bunch of friends wre partying one night and somehow ended up in a conversation about Hot Lake.None of us(about 10)had ever been there and a few had vaguely heard of it.My friend had been there before,but never been inside,he told us of local community stories heard from people he knew and people they knew and so on ....that it was a resort in the early 20's and 30's (no idea if any of this is true)and that people had drown in the lake causing the hauntings at the hotel,eventually the resort closed.Then that it had become an insane asylum.That people around who had went there heard footsteps on the second or third floor (can't remember)that people who had went nside heard voices and screaming etc.This is all after the building has been vacant of course.He also told us of satan worshipping alters (perhaps seance ritual set ups)and people sneaking in using ouija boards and freaking out.A lot of different stories to which after so many years i cannot remember the details(Sorry)but to make a long story short of course curiosity killed the cat and a few hours later we were all loaded up into two vehicles and away we went.It was only an hour or so drive from where we lived in Eastern Oregon but about a mile away i knew we were there because you could see the steam rising up from the lake.It was 2'o clock in the morning and it looked like some kind of freaky fog.The lake is soooo black,but you can still see the lights from i guess some kind of trailor park or something on the opposite side reflecting off of the water.It is truly eerie,it looks like the water is smoking .The only thing going through my mind was holy sh..t!!! So we parked our cars on a gravel side road and headed for the main road.When you get 1/2 way to the resort there was an old sign that said closed and a rope that hung down to the side.If you pulled the rope(maybe a chain)anyway,the letters on the sign flipped around and on the other side said open,the sign squeaked and whined just like in some Stephen King flick.At that point you can totally see the hotel.It's a really large building with a probably,100yd(guess)walk up nto the building that is lined with large trees.From a distance it doesn't seem like that long of a walk until you get to it,and once
you start down the walk and get to the hotel it is so much bigger than it looked even from the beginning of the walk.The building must have been so beautiful back in the day when it was a resort.I believe it was brick and white trim .The front entrance has a large porch with a second floor balony which is rounded into a half circle above the entrance and steps to the porch.There are also doors that come out onto the balcony(large french style possibly).I don't remember but there are large windows along the rest of the building where i'm assuming the rooms were.There were large columns holding the balcony above the porch and the steps started at the base of these the 2 columns closest to the steps had steam coming up from them on both sides of the steps it was as if the hotel was breathing.Up to that point was freaky enough for me every single hair on my neck was standing up,and that place screams it has the mother-load of crazy bad energy just waiting to unleash if you A. Weren't too freaked to go in and seriously hang out for a few inside...or....B. You could do A. without getting busted by the care-taker and his 2 large attack dogs and the shotgun he packs around.THAT is a personal experience i did have there. But aside from all that my friends and i were too wigged to go in,but on our way back down the walk heading to get the hell out of there , one of our group looked back and saw a woman standing in the window on one of the upper floors and 2 rooms with lights that were not on when we were on the steps minutes before.We all saw it and ran like hell the rest of the way to our cars.That was my first trip to Hot Lake Hotel and the most eventful of the 4 times i had been there .The last time was when 5 of us experienced the psycho caretaker.Word to the wise your luck at getting a good look is better far,far,away from Oct.31.We always went in the middle of the night in the summer.But that was 15 years ago.Maybe it's too much trouble but it's definitely S-C-A-R-Y!!!!!I'm glad i got a chance to experience it for myself.
