Yes it is haunted - but I did not see the cat or children that others claim to have seen. I had to promise my 5yo that I would not pet the ghost cat or follow the ghost children before I stayed there.

Hi Julie, We do have bottom bunks in the Annex, but for availability, it's best to call 415-331-2777 to check and confirm a bottom bunk reservation as I'm not sure what dates you are looking at.
