Corrington's purchased the property in 1997 and spent more than one million dollars renovating the Crown Jewel of the Gold Rush. Now solid and up to code, each of the 31 rooms are dedicated to gold rush families and filled with their momentos and antiques.

The first floor offers a 60 seat pub, 80 seat Victorian style restaurant, 30 seat outdoor patio and Southeast Alaska’s first microbrewery.

Two ghosts are often said to haunt thishaunted Alaska hotel. Many employees of the golden North Hote l have so often had to explain the haunting that they have named one of the many Ghost " Scary Mary."

Scary Mar , is the spirit or ghost of a young lost little lady who sadly died all alone in her room of what some believe was pneumonia or tuberculosos, while waiting for her fiancé to return from his long gold-prospecting expedition. Locals and visitors and staff believe her ghost still haunts everyone who stays in her room.

She is said to still haunt actual Room 23, where her body was discovered dead one fine day long agao. Scary Mary's misty ghostly images has appeared as well as is heard quite often. Several recent guests have complained of hearing choking as well as having the sensations themselves. She can be heard coughing in the middle of the night.

Room 14 is haunted also some staff and haunted hotel gurest say is a strange "light form" orb like manifestion or ghost, but not, it slowly moves around in the room night and day and has been captured on video and ghost photos.

Ghost Stories from the Far North
They are watching us, these ghosts of the North. They cook breakfast, play cards, mine gold, turn on radios, and play the piano. HAUNTED ALASKA is a collection of ghost stories that will raise the hair on the back of your neck. These astonishing stories tell of miners terrorized by spirits wandering their claims, of roadhouse owners visited daily by ghosts, and of reindeer herders who run in fear as one of their own departed comes back in spirit form to continue his duties after death.

" 'When my company took over Circle Hots Springs Lodge, people could hardly wait to tell me about the ghosts,' said owner Susan Knapman. These included the fur coat hanging on a wall in the basement that reached out and touched people, things flying off shelves, and a ghost who was apparently unhappy with the way things were run in the kitchen. One night during the winter, a worker looked outside and saw the ghostly image of a man playing a piano. It was 50 below zero! Knapman herself lost sleep several nights when something kept knocking on her door. But no one was there."

The Golden North Hotel in Skagway Alaska, claims their hotel is haunted by two ghosts. The first is a strange light form that haunts room fourteen . The light is said to move around the room and no one seems to know why or what it is.

This weird effect is not the only thing that has scared or alarmed guests. Some time ago, a young lady who was staying at the hotel in room twenty-three became very ill with pneumonia during her stay. So her fiancé went off to work in a gold digging expedition hoping to make enough money to take his sick love to a hospital. She waited anxiously for her fiancé to return, but the longer she waited the more ill she became. Eventually she gave up hope that her love would return .

It was too late by the time he came home, she had died. Their love story came to a tragic end. Now, the hotel says that guests who have stayed in room twenty-three claim to have seen a ghostly figure of a woman reaching out to choke them or felt someone choking them in the middle of the night.
