Dinner & Overnight Accommodations Included with Reservations
Established in 1884 by
Michael Ruebel, this historic hotel offered cleans rooms, beds
and meals to travelers on the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers.
It was a bit of luxury in a town that was known for railroads,
riverboats and 26 saloons with names like the "Bucket of Blood".
Respectable travelers in need of a place to stay turned to this
elegant hotel -- and some of them left a little piece of
themselves behind. After World II and the end of the steamship
and railroad eras, the world passed Grafton by and the town
withered and died. The Ruebel Hotel went with it and by the
1980s, it was an abandoned derelict. In 1996, it was purchased
by the Lorton family, who renovated, remodeled and restored the
place to its former glory. Today, the hotel is considered one of
the finest in the region and the Chicago Tribune ranked
it as the "best overnight stay" and the "best food" along the
Mississippi River. It's also one of the most haunted!
|According to staff
members and travelers, the Ruebel Hotel is haunted by not only
past guests, but the ghost of a little girl who has been dubbed
"Abigail". Who she might have been in life, no one knows but she
has been lingering here for many years.
There have been dozens of other reports of strange encounters and
eerie happenings at the old hotel and American Hauntings is now
offering you a chance to experience those things for yourself!
