The 12 Most Haunted Places in Dorset
In the 18 th century, there was a thriving smuggling economy in Dorset due to its coves, caves and sandy beaches and these locations form part of the picture-book imagery seen on many tourist websites featuring landforms such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Chesil Beach and the Isle of Portland with its fantastic lighthouse.
Also, during the Second World War, Dorset was involved in the preparations for the Normandy invasions, with Poole and Portland being two of the main embarkation points for British troops.
This rich history provides a catalogue of paranormal encounters stretching across the entire county. Reports by visitors have included everything from sightings, to explained sounds, through to poltergeist activity, allowing you to tick every box of your ghostly vacation.
Here, we highlight the 12 most haunted places in Dorset.
1. Bettiscombe Manor, Bettiscombe
The manor house in the village of Bettiscombe is known as the ‘House of the Screaming Skull’.
The skull is purported to be that of a Jamaican slave brought to the manor by John Frederick Pinney on his return from the Caribbean island of Nevis, where he had been a slave owner.
It is said that the slave became seriously ill with consumption, and as he lay dying, he swore that he would never rest until his remains were returned to his homeland of Nevis.
However, after the death of his faithful slave, the wealthy Pinney refused to pay for the body to be repatriated with Nevis and instead buried the body within the grounds of St Stephens Church at Bettiscombe. Shortly after the burial, screams were heard coming from the cemetery, along with reports of activity of a paranormal kind, including windows rattling and doors slamming.
Worried villagers pressed for the exhumation of the body, believing it to be responsible for the activity they were experiencing. The body was taken from the churchyard to the manor house, but the skeleton has all but vanished over the years, except for the skull, where it has now remained in the manor for centuries.
2. Langtry Manor Hotel, Bournemouth
This hotel was once the home of a vaudeville performer, Lillie Langtry, who was celebrated as a young woman of beauty, charm and talent who was very much a celebrity of her time. It is said that the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) was besotted with Langtry and took her as his mistress.
Her love became very complicated, and it is alleged that she went on to have affairs with Earl of Shrewsbury, Prince Louis of Battenburg and a man named Arthur Clarence Jones.
The ghost of Lillie Langtry haunts the Langtry Manor Hotel , spotted many times by the chef.

3. Corfe Castle, Corfe Castle Village
It is believed that the area around Corfe Castle has been occupied for almost 6,000 years. A castle was built on-site by William the Conquerer, and then Queen Elizabeth I sold the property to Sir Christopher Hatton in 1572. Since then, the Castle has been through the wars, quite literally, including the English Civil War.
With this long settlement history, it’s no surprise that the Castle and its surroundings have been linked to scores of ghost sightings . A headless woman in a white nightgown has been spotted at a bridge just beneath the Castle.
Lights have been spotted on the ramparts of the Castle in the dead of night. The cries of a weeping child have been heard on nights where the air is calm, and still, the sound of a galloping phantom horse has been heard, and the sighting of an apparition of a man wearing a big floppy hat has been reported too!
4. Trent Barrow, Trent
Situated close to Sherbourne, Trent Barrow is a wooded hill just east of the village of Trent. In the middle of this wooded hill lies a strange pond, but apparently, no one knows how deep it is.
Stories connected to this location include a coach and horses that lost their way, never to be seen again. It is said that the sound of hooves can be heard at night around the area.
This area is also linked to the folklore of King Arthur and is said to be the place where Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, was thrown. The location, which is heavily lined with trees and has a mystical, misty feel, certainly lends itself to the idea of days of yore and the associated legends.
5. Durdle Door, Lulworth
Our next stop on the tour of most haunted places in Dorset is Durdle Moor. Durdle Moor is an impressive, natural limestone arch located on the Jurassic coastal area near Lulworth, this mysterious formation has been the scene of hauntings, including a report by a sailor anchored at Durdle Door.
He claims to have heard a scream coming from the shore. When looking out to see where the noises were coming from, he saw a group of young girls who appeared from the water, danced and then disappeared.
It is alleged that they could have been the ghosts of maidservants that fled the fire at nearby Lulworth Castle in 1929. The Castle was restored in the 1970s.
A figure of what is thought to be Napoleon also manifests in this area. The man is seen to study a map before folding it up and then vanishing.
6. The Boot Inn, Allington
A man with half his head blown off has been seen in this hostelry. This haunting is said to be a result of a tragic accident.
In 1877, a man called George Clapp had been shooting, calling at the pub on his way home. Leaving his shotgun by the bar door, another customer noticed some wire entangled around the trigger and tried to remove it.
However, in his attempts to make the gun safer, the gun went off, killing one of the men in the bar.
7. The Esplanade, Weymouth
There is said to be a corner seat on the promenade where there have been several sightings of an old woman who ‘smells of death’ if you manage to get close enough. It is alleged that the fiancé of one of the witnesses to the old woman’s presence sat in the very spot himself and died of a heart attack.
8. Tyneham – Dorset's Ghost Village, Steeple With Tyneham
Tyneham Village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book, and today the entire village stands uninhabited. It was taken over by the Ministry of Defence in 1943, displacing 225 residents.
Only open to the public at specific times as it is now a military firing range, visitors to this ghost village experience the genuine notion of time standing still in this village, as it remains very much a pre-war state.
Paranormal investigators to this site have recorded voices caught on tape, including one calling himself Warren, unexplained screeching noises and stones being thrown at the investigation team.
This is undoubtedly an area that could be rich in sightings and phenomena but worth a visit for its surreal, eerie atmosphere.
9. Royal Signals Museum, Blandford Forum
The ghost at this location was once known as Fred but has since been renamed Mary, for it is believed that the phantom is a local woman who was due to marry her US serviceman lover during the Second World War.
However, it is said that she was murdered just before her wedding day, just adjacent to where the museum was built.
Mary moves small objects, creates cold spots throughout the museum and is responsible for the sound of phantom footsteps that have been heard in the building.
10. Bridport Museum, Bridport
At more than four centuries old, this building has been an inn, a bank and a private house before becoming a museum. One of the owners, Captain Albert Codd, haunts the building. Dressed in a bright yellow smoking jacket and black trousers, he has been seen contentedly wandering around the museum by several people.
The museum also houses a ‘haunted dress’, which dates from the 17 th century. The dress is of very high quality and appears to attract the apparition of a young woman, who guardedly looks over the clothing. The young woman is said to appear very frequently!
11. The Grosvenor Hotel, Shaftesbury
The Grosvenor Hotel has been voted the 5 th most haunted hotel in the UK and has had visitors report some very spooky happenings. The hotel started life as a 16th-century coaching inn.
A grey lady is said to haunt the hotel’s upper floors, where she has been seen walking the corridors.
The cellar, the oldest part of the building, is said to be the haunt of a monk, which several witnesses have seen.
Also, the ghost of a playful young girl likes to frighten guests by pulling off the sheets as they sleep at night.
12. Athelhampton House, Dorchester
Athelhampton House in Dorchester is a Tudor Mansion dating from 1485. It’s gained notoriety as the most haunted place in Dorset, and one of the most haunted houses in England, having been featured on numerous paranormal shows.
Haunted by numerous ghosts, the most infamous is the Grey Lady. Her apparition has been reported by owners, staff, and visitors, mainly on the upper floors and bedrooms.
The ghost of a monk is also known to frequent the house. In one terrifying incident, a staff member heard footsteps walking up behind her, and upon turning around, witnessed the monk’s ghost standing outside the bathroom door.

Get your scream on: Spooky spots, gory ghouls and ghastly ghosts for a spirited Halloween
Cackling witches, devilish black cats and enchanted pumpkins are lurking behind every corner on the South Shore – and beyond – this October. Kids and adults, from the brave to the bashful, have their choice of fun or fright as the month creeps toward Halloween.
Friendly ghosts in Weymouth
Grab your electromagnetic field detector and head over to Weymouth's Emery Estate, which has been a hotbed of supernatural activity since Christy Parrish, a paranormal investigator, began giving ghost tours of the home this past spring. Expect the hair on the back of your neck to be standing as guests have reported slamming doors, flickering lights, odd sounds and voices, temperature changes, missing keys and more. As far as we know, these are friendly ghosts, though. Parrish is holding another tour at the estate at 7 p.m. Oct. 28; $30, register at eventbrite.com .
The Emery Estate is a 1903 mansion designed to look like George Washington’s Mount Vernon and set on 24 hilltop acres overlooking Massachusetts Bay and the Boston skyline. Besides the main house, there is a carriage house, a garage and a children’s playhouse. The property had been in the Emery family – prominent wool merchants – since 1916. Allan Comstock Emery Jr. was living there at his death, at the age of 91, in 2010. He was executive chairman of the Greater Boston Billy Graham Crusade and hosted a weekly teen Bible study in the home. The estate, which is now known as King Oak Hill Park, has a history going back to before the Revolutionary War, when farmers spotted British ships approaching the harbor and notified revolutionaries in Boston. During World War II, the Emery family offered up their house to troops who were manning anti-aircraft guns in the same field in defense of the Quincy shipyard.
History and mystery in Plymouth
If you're in the mood for more mystery and history this Halloween season, then point your broomstick toward Plymouth. The landing site of the Pilgrims is as haunted as it is historic, with spooky tours to lead daring souls through the dark side of town.
The Plymouth Night Tour starts and ends at Burial Hill, where more than 2,500 people are known to be buried underneath the patchy grass. It’s considered one of the most haunted places on the South Shore. Local investigators lead walking tours of the grounds almost every night, and they've got no shortage of stories to tell. You might hear the story of Mother Crewe and the tragic things that happened to the family that she cursed. Or you might see a pukwudgie, a tiny creature said to haunt the grounds. Original to Wampanoag lore and borrowed by J.K. Rowling for the "Harry Potter '' universe, pukwudgies are small, imp-like creatures that have hairy human features and can appear or disappear at will. They are known for teasing humans – harmlessly, of course. Tours run weekend nights at 5 o’clock and take about two hours; plymouthghosttours.com .
On Plymouth’s Dead of Night Ghost Tour , each participant is given a tin lantern – a replica of ones that were used in the 17th century – to light the way through the dark alleys and burial grounds. Spooky stops include the Old North Street Tea and Curiosity Shop, and the 1829 Taylor Trask Museum and the 1725 Captain Taylor House, which are two of the town’s most haunted historical houses and recently featured on the Travel Channel’s paranormal-investigation program “Portals to Hell.” Visitors will see a haunted mirror, a pram, a doll and a spinning wheel. Tourgoers will also walk down Leyden Street, one of the oldest in America, visit the Town Square and find out who haunts the 1749 courthouse. Three different tour options are available; deadofnightghosttours.com.
'Ghosts & Gravestones' in Boston
On the popular Boston Ghosts & Gravestones tour, board the "Trolley of Terror" for stops at Copp's Hill Burying Ground in the North End or the Granary Burying Ground on Tremont Street or the King’s Chapel Burying Ground, the final resting place of Paul Revere. A 17th-century gravedigger relays stories of the unfortunate souls he has encountered. The part trolley ride, part walking tour is a 90-minute adventure through the seedy side of Boston. You'll also trace the steps of the Boston Strangler and visit famous cemeteries, listening to tales of who is buried there. Though the stories are pretty grave, the guides keep things lighthearted with jokes and bad puns. Tours depart every 30 minutes from 5:30 to 9 p.m. weekdays and 5:30 to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays through Oct. 31 and weekends in November; $43 and up; ghostsandgravestones.com .
A taste of local lore on cemetery tours
With graves dating to the 17th century and headstones adorned with winged skulls or carvings of urns and sundials, the First Parish Cemetery in Norwell is a setting ready-made for Halloween. The Norwell Historical Society will present its third annual tour from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 15. The dead will be brought to life by local actors, performing graveside reenactments or narration to tell the personal stories of the notable figures, such as famed author John Cheever. He was laid to rest in the cemetery in 1982, next to the graves of his parents. Mary Bryant died in childbirth and her grave is one of the oldest. Other portrayals include Hannah Phillips Cushing, wife of U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Cushing, and Eleanor Norris, benefactor of Norris Reservation and a pillar of the community who died of the Spanish flu in 1918. $10 admission; sign up at norwellhistoricalsociety.org .
The Pembroke Historical Society presents after-dark walking tours of Pembroke Center Cemetery from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 16 and 23. Guides will share historical tales and ghostly stories of the dearly departed buried in the town's oldest cemetery. Flashlights will be provided and all proceeds support the Pembroke Historic Society. $10 tickets at eventbrite.com .
Scare up fun at a haunted house
For a spine-chilling scream spectacle, visit Barrett's Haunted Mansion in Abington, where gruesome ghouls and dreadful creatures have for 31 years startled even the most dauntless visitors. This year's frightful setting is at a Halloween party where a rogue spirit wreaks havoc on unsuspecting guests. The website warns “don’t come alone.” Also, to give you more boo for your buck, a new attraction, Condemned, is an outdoor adventure that explores the apocalyptic aftermath of a chemical disaster in a small town. Tickets cost $36 and include both attractions; 1235 Bedford St. (Route 18), Abington; bhmansion.com .
It's a room with a boo in Duxbury at the Alden House Historic Site , 105 Alden St. A haunted house event takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. Oct. 21-22 and features mildly creepy tours of the home, which is said to be haunted by Charles Alden, who lived there in the 1920s. Some say "Aunt Polly," who died at age 93 in 1882, also still occupies the property, which is a designated National Historical Landmark. There will also be a haunted maze, a trail walk and a scavenger hunt. Costumes and decorated Halloween masks are encouraged; the event is not recommended for children under 3. Tickets cost $10; advance registration is required; alden.org .
Expect lots of chills and thrills at the second annual Carver Haunted House at the “creepy old fire station.” Participants will walk through frightful rooms decked out with startling scenes and haunted spirits that might not be suitable for young children. The Carver Recreation Committee and many local volunteers scare up the fun from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 21-22 and Oct. 28-29 at 112 Main St., Carver. Cost is $5, cash only at the door; www.facebook.com/CarverRecreation .
“Hollowed Harvest,” a Halloween attraction that features thousands of glowing jack-o'-lanterns arranged in creative displays, runs through Oct. 30 at the Marshfield Fairgrounds, 33 South River St.. Visitors will take a 35- to 40-minute walk past scenes crafted with more than 7,000 carved jack-o'-lanterns, including a pumpkin tunnel and displays that are as large as two stories tall. Tickets for children are $16 and $20 for adults. Admission for children 3 and younger is free; hollowedharvest.com/marshfield-ma .
Listen to ghost stories and chilling legends inspired by late author, historian and storyteller Edward Rowe Snow at “Harbor Haunts.” There will also be live musical accompaniment to enhance the twists and turns of the devilish tales. Presented by the Scituate Historical Society, the event is 7:30 to 9 p.m. Oct. 21-22 at the GAR Hall, 353 Country Way, Scituate. Tickets cost $10 at scituatehistoricalsociety.org .
The talented troupe at The Company Theatre goes for the jugular for its production of “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” Stephen Sondheim's macabre musical tells the story of an 18th-century London barber who slit the throats of more than 150 men with his trusty razors – crimes made all the more grotesque by the fact that he chopped up the corpses and conspired with his landlord to dispose of the remains in her ‘‘delicious’’ meat pies. The show runs through Oct. 23 at 30 Accord Park Drive, Norwell. $20-$56; companytheatre.com .

The astronomical history of Oct. 31 is the topic of Celestial Origins of Halloween , a program at 7 p.m. Oct. 18 at the Blake Planetarium at Plymouth Community Intermediate School, 117 Long Pond Road. Traverse the night sky and learn what planets, constellations and stars will be out on Halloween evening. On Oct. 28, the presentation shifts to Halloween Origins and Moon Exploration. Tickets are $7 and can be purchased at eventbrite.com .
A three-day pumpkin-carving extravaganza – Carve-O-Rama! – will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 27-29 at the New England Wildlife Center, 500 Columbian St. There will also be food trucks, animal presentations and tours of the facility; newildlife.com .
If you're afraid of things that go bump in the night, you might opt for the Jack-O'-Lantern Spectacular, celebrating its 75th year as the biggest, brightest pumpkin patch in New England. More than 5,000 ornately carved and illuminated jack-o'-lanterns – that's about 150,000 pounds of pumpkin – are displayed on a 3-acre woodland trail outside the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence. The jack-o'-lanterns are divided into themed areas, such as the pumpkin tree, where small carved pumpkins are strung on trees; and the "laughing place," where hundreds of pumpkins with carved smiles illuminate the path, while Disney-esque laughter and music swells in the crisp, fall air. Other jack-o'-lanterns depict rock stars, movie legends, politicians and historical events. Through Oct. 31 at the Roger Williams Park Zoo, 1000 Elmwood Ave., Providence; tickets cost $18 for adults Monday-Thursday and $21 for adults Friday-Sunday and must be bought in advance at rwpzoo.org .
Walk the trick-or-treat trail and meet peacocks, snakes and other creatures at Zoo Howl from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 29-30 at Franklin Park Zoo, 1 Franklin Park Road, Boston. There will also be costume contests, haunted mazes and spooky games; zoonewengland.org .

The cast includes Chris Bradshaw, of Plymouth, as Annie Wilkes, who was played by Kathy Bates in the 1990 movie version. Mark Reed, of Hull, plays the injured writer. The show will be directed by True Rep Artistic Director Donald Sheehan; www.truereptheatre.com .

Does anyone remember the haunted cellar attraction from the 90s that was situated on the sea front you used to walk down some stairs and it was like a haunted house can’t find any photos of info anywhere. Does anyone have any photos of the outside or inside ?? Thanks
Hi, I know you posted this ages ago, but I have just found this on another thread about this attraction.
I don't know if I have shared the link right? Hopefully as the video is unlisted. But you can see it from about 7:22 on the video.
I remember this place so well! I loved it as a kid. Hardly anyone seems to remember it though.

Fainting goat island inn , nichols.
Chilling encounters await at the cozy and charming Fainting Goat Island Inn. Voted 2023’s #1 Best Haunted Hotel in the U.S. for the second year in a row by USA Today readers, this former railroad hotel built in the late 1800s boasts four themed bedrooms with vintage, Victorian, and country comfort touches. The guestbook reads like a collection of ghost stories with reports of moving furniture, footsteps echoing on nonexistent staircases, gumballs spilling in an empty hall, and sheets being pulled off beds. Once daylight breaks, treat yourself to a homemade cinnamon bun and then say hi to the fainting goats and Porkchop the potbelly pig as you wander the expansive grounds taking in the beautiful gardens and dreamy Susquehanna River views. This haunted haven is conveniently located just off Route I86 and just one mile from Tioga Downs Casino Resort .
1867 Parkview Inn , Owego
The past comes alive in more ways than one at the 1867 Parkview Inn, a charming historic treasure that once played host to notable guests like John D. Rockefeller and Oscar Hammerstein in the heart of Owego’s downtown. Its 14 rooms are bright and cheery with river and downtown views, but there’s a dark side to add a dash of the paranormal to your stay. Haunted happenings range from ringing bells to moving objects, and you may even bump elbows with some friendly spirits by the handcrafted oak bar at the Duggan House Restaurant and Pub, which serves up comfort foods and Irish pub favorites. A recently-discovered sealed-off room and a basement crawl space with a dark history involving cowboys and murder further add to the intrigue of this haunted haven, where guests receive a complimentary breakfast with their stay. Pet-friendly and ADA accessible rooms are available.
Belhurst Castle , Geneva
Experience a romantic getaway with a supernatural twist on the shores of Seneca Lake at the opulent Belhurst Castle. History and hauntings intertwine throughout the beautifully appointed accommodations at the 1880s stone castle, Georgian Revival mansion, and inn, as well as two on-site restaurants, winery, and Isabella Spa & Salon, named after the legendary ghost whose tale weaves through Belhurst's rich tapestry. You may catch a glimpse of her lingering spirit roaming the grounds grieving her lost love. Staff and guests have also reported eerie encounters from showers turning on and off in guest rooms, to bottles and glasses flying around the bar, and the soft strains of a lullaby echoing through the night, according to the Haunted History Trail .
Miles Wine Cellars , Himrod
Looking to embrace the spirits of the ghostly kind and those you can drink? Plan a trip to Miles Wine Cellars, where you can stay in the 1802 Greek revival mansion that holds a commanding view of the sparkling Seneca Lake and houses more than just the renowned rieslings synonymous with the Finger Lakes. From echoing footsteps to mysterious sounds and slamming doors, much has happened here that can’t be explained. While ghost hunting and disrupting the spirits is discouraged, Miles Wine Cellars pays homage to its supernatural inhabitants with its "Ghost" wine—a delightful blend of Chardonnay and Cayuga that delivers the essence of the terroir and lingering mysteries of this destination with each sip.
The Naples Hotel , Naples
Find yourself spirited away to The Naples Hotel, located 10 minutes from the serene Canandaigua Lake in the land of wine and grape pies. This boutique hotel with 32 guest rooms, a restaurant, and basement bar is not your run-of-the-mill haunt. Since 1895, many guests have passed through its storied halls and some have never left — with a woman and her phantom children, a Civil War soldier, and a man named Topper among the many ghosts that have taken up permanent residence. Flickering lights, televisions turning on and off, and mysterious whispers are some of the haunted happenings that earned it a feature on Syfy channel's "Ghost Hunters."
Red coach inn , niagara falls.
The rushing waters of Niagara Falls aren't the only thing delivering thrills and chills at the Red Coach Inn. The posh, Tudor-style hotel overlooking the majestic Upper Rapids certainly brings the romance deserving of this destination known as the "Honeymoon Capital of the World," but it's also got a few tricks and treats on hand for a boo-tiful getaway. The inn has racked up quite a few ghost stories since opening in 1923 and guests have even reported seeing jewelry move across dressers and hearing mysterious music in the dead of night. For a hauntingly memorable experience, make sure to sail on the iconic Maid of the Mist , get sprayed on the Hurricane Deck of the Cave of the Winds walking tour,and feel the rush of the Whirlpool Jet Boat tour .
Genesee Falls Inn , Portageville
photo credit: amityphotos.com.
Brace yourself for an otherworldly adventure at Genesee Falls Inn, a historic bed and breakfast offering more than a comfortable stay. Many have reported a strange feeling as they step into this brick Victorian built in 1870 that has seen its share of the unexplained from footsteps echoing in empty hallways to doors closing on their own. Looking for some ghost-free fun? Letchworth State Park is just a half-mile away so you can explore the “Grand Canyon of the East” before settling in with the things that go bump in the night in one of the inn’s 12 uniquely decorated rooms adorned with authentic Victorian antiques.
Graestone Manor , Gasport
Graestone Manor Bed & Breakfast offers a chilling retreat for those daring enough to delve into the paranormal with four guest rooms each with their own unique haunting past. Owners Bob Mattison and his wife, psychic medium Heather Rease Mattison, offer overnight paranormal investigations that unravel the haunted history of the 1865 Victorian mansion nestled in the quiet Erie Canal countryside. Priced at $320 for groups of 10, you’ll explore “hot spots” and areas with documented paranormal experiences throughout the main house and servants' wing of this beautifully preserved equestrian estate. Guests have reported hearing phantom horse hooves and a carriage, while the ghost of a woman observed in windows and caught on film adds to the eerie atmosphere. Reports of portals attributed to Victorian seances, shadow masses, and lingering scents of cigar smoke and perfume complete the spine-chilling experience at this haunted B&B. Brave souls can also book a Victorian seance or oracle card reading; 2-hour history tours are also available.
Hart House Hotel , Medina
Experience the spectral charm of the Hart House Hotel in Medina, a historic gem that welcomed its first travelers in 1876. After the original inn shuttered in 1918, the brick building served as a shirt factory for 85 years dressing the likes of Bob Hope, Winston Churchill, and John Jacob Astor before once again finding life as a hotel. With original floors and windows, this trendy Euro-inspired boutique hotel, complete with a cocktail bar and rooms that pay homage to famous shirt factory clientele, exudes a haunted aura. Visitors have reported hearing names called aloud when no one is around and encountering the spirit of a woman in a long flowing dress at the top of the staircase, according to the Haunted History Trail . Whether you tuck into the hotel's uniquely designed rooms or dine at the Shirt Factory Cafe, prepare for a hauntingly delightful encounter with lingering spirits from the past.
Historic hotel broadalbin , broadalbin .
Hauntings are on the horizon when you book a stay at the Historic Hotel Broadalbin. What started as a glove factory in 1854 turned into a hospital for treating alcoholism in 1895, with questionable methods and often dire consequences. Immerse yourself in the terrifying tales when you dine in the hotel’s 1854 Pub & Eatery and if you dare, ask your server about the lamp that was seemingly toppled by an invisible hand. Relax for the evening on the outdoor porch in one of the many rocking chairs or cozy up on the couch before retreating to your room. The nighttime might bring about sightings of soldiers standing atop staircases or figures in windows. Experience the spine-tingling sensations yourself with special haunted events like a Halloween Murder Mystery Dinner Party .
Timeless Tavern Restaurant and Inn , Northville
Trick-or-treat yourself to a stay in the six-room Timeless Tavern Inn or just stop by for a bite at the restaurant. For the fearless, ask the staff to tell you about the ghostly apparitions, odd occurrences, and hauntings. To give you a glimpse into the ghostly galore, a visiting cable repair man once saw a woman in the basement of the Tavern who claimed she was the boss, while others have returned to dark rooms after knowing they left the lights on. In 2013, a full investigation of the property was conducted by Albany Paranormal and the findings were so strong that one team member hosted her wedding at the Tavern, wanting to say “I do” in a room full of BOO! While you’re in the area take a scenic drive just a few minutes down the road to Great Sacandaga Lake.
Burn Brae Mansion , Glen Spey
Become bewitched at the Burn Brae Mansion, a captivating century-old Victorian B&B steeped in history , natural beauty, and paranormal activity. The mansion sits on over 20 wooded acres enveloped by streams, open fields, and walking trails– one of which leads to the historic Glen Spey Cemetery, the final resting place of the original owners. Enhance your stay when you book a group paranormal investigation or a Murder Mystery dinner, among other special events offered throughout the year. Overnight guests are invited to take a guided tour of the mansion, including the Attic of Curiosities. Additional accommodation packages include a home-cooked dinner and full homemade breakfast. This B&B is BYOB (booze and BOOs!) and when you’re ready to decompress from the eerie encounters, take a dip in the outdoor pool, serve an ace on the volleyball court, or play the day away in the game room. As you retreat to your quarters for the night, stunning spiral and grand staircases beckon you to beautifully decorated suites showcasing stained glass windows, Victorian baths, and exquisite sitting rooms.
King house mansion at the tarrytown house estate , tarrytown.
Supernatural splendor surrounds you at the Tarrytown House Estate. Set on 26 acres of lush greenery in the heart of the Hudson Valley, this luxurious hotel features impressive 19th-century mansions – King Mansion, Biddle Mansion, Carriage House and Cottage – as well as a contemporary atrium-style building that houses conference facilities and guest rooms. Whether you’re staying for business, leisure, or a ghastly getaway, guests enjoy amenities including a fitness club, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, sauna, racquetball and tennis courts. Make a reservation to dine on-site at the Goosefeather Restaurant and ask the staff to share the mansion's haunted history. If you stay overnight in the King House Mansion, beware as it is believed the spirit of a woman paces the halls of the second floor, lingering near room 293 where she is said to have passed on to the other side, according to the Haunted History Trail .
The Haunted Shanley Hotel , Napanoch
The name speaks for itself! The Haunted Shanley Hotel, dating back to 1845, is said to be one of the most haunted hotels on the East Coast, so it makes perfect sense that a stay at the Shanley includes a paranormal investigation of the property. Don’t want to stay the night? Day tours and non-sleepover mini investigations are also available. This hotel is not for the faint of heart; well known as a paranormal paradise, it has been featured on TV shows like “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Lab”. Staff will feed your fears (and your stomachs) with continental breakfast included in overnight stays and assorted refreshments served during ghost hunts. Over the years, visitors have reported seeing rocking chairs rocking on their own, mysterious clock chimes, piano music, whistling, the laughing of children, cold and hot spots - even the aromas of cooking when no food is being prepared. Venture there if you dare, where many have seen shadows and apparitions at the Shanley, and report the feeling of being watched.
Central New York
The beekman house , middleburgh.
You’re never alone when you stay at this 1835 Greek Revival mansion, thanks to the ghost of a former resident of The Beekman House Bed and Breakfast who never left his beloved estate. We don’t blame him, what’s not to love about stunning mountain views, classic comfort, modern convenience, and rooms that include their own downstairs parlour where made-to-order farm-to-table breakfast is served each morning. When you check-in make sure to ask staff about spine-chilling sightings and stories about an old man with a beard who lives under the stairs and a shadowy figure that moves through empty rooms and hallways checking the locks.
Brae Loch Inn , Cazenovia
Nestled beside picturesque Cazenovia Lake, the Brae Loch Inn is a warm, inviting (and suspiciously supernatural) Scottish inn. Family-owned and operated since 1946, the inn offers 12 charmingly classic guest rooms (many of which feature canopy beds and jacuzzi tubs), an on-site restaurant serving American cuisine with a Scottish and French flair, and the largest selection of Single Malt Scotch in Central New York, even hosting a Scotch Club bi-monthly that offers tastings. The inn embraces its ghoulish side with Dinner with the Spirits events through October. Guests at the inn have reported seeing a ghostly girl in a long blue dress offering to show them to their room. Other tales include a man and woman walking through closets and light orbs floating through canopy beds. Watch what happened when the Haunted History Trail of New York State paid a visit to the Brae Loch Inn or get in on the action yourself with an overnight stay, if you dare.
The Haunted History Trail of New York State features over 80 haunted locations found within almost every region of New York State. Guided ghost tours, paranormal investigations, haunted dining and overnights, and spine-chilling events are available on the trail, with many of the attractions tying back to New York’s local history.
