The other Spreckels Coronado house, built in 1908 was his "bay-side house" which is now the Glorietta Bay Inn.
John D. Spreckels was haunted by the Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, which caused him to move to Coronado Island, across the bay from San Diego.

The "beach house" has recently joined the nearby Hotel del Coronado as another Spreckels home to spirits "under suspicious circumstances."
