ADVENTURE SUNDAY: Haunted B&Bs

**Don't forget--tonight at 11 pm EST is the deadline for my giveaway--winner announced tomorrow**

Haunted B&Bs. We have them all over the country. Consider a stay in one. You can kill two birds with one stone--take your loved one to a romantic spot and hopefully have a ghost sit on the edge of your bed at night.

Honestly, haunted hotels are okay, but if you want real action, go for the B&Bs. The owners are quick to tell stories of the ghosts, the rooms are quiet, the house quite old, and with the authentic antique furnishings and family living and working in the home most times, it has a kind of active haunting feel that is hard to find in a large impersonal hotel.

Here's just some around the country:

MICHIGAN:
The Kirby House Bed & Breakfast


PENNSYLVANIA:
The Cashtown Inn


MARYLAND:
Wayside Inn


GEORGIA:
Kehoe House


TEXAS:
The Katy House


OREGON:
Heceta Head Lighthouse Inn

  2. I wonder what is a better idea: Being the owner, and denying any types of haunting, so people aren't scared away, or announcing it to the world, and drawing out the adventurous types?

    Cool--keep me posted.

    My dream would be to have a haunted B&B, be able to be hostess to folks and cook for them and every night at 10 pm, have them meet in front of the fireplace for brandy and stories of ghosts of the place and then send them off to bed, a little buzzed and a little bit unsettled.

  5. Glad to inspire you, Court. You are the expert over at Haunt Jaunts. I think you could run circles around me on haunted B&Bs, dear.
