The Guest Bedroom
The house was designed to accommodate long term guests who often stayed for months at a time. This one still retains its original carpet, sewn together in strips with a border running along the walls. The rooms appears warm and inviting in the photograph, but is in fact stone cold year round. Green Bay psychic Lori Manns attributes this to the fireplace being a "spirit portal," through which she and others maintain is an access point from this world to the next. In our case the reports are of wanting to play.
