A Haunted Bed & Breakfast May Draw Huge Crowds

Jun 5, 2008
It is very interesting what will sell in our society sometimes, and one of the unique elements may be that your bed & breakfast is haunted. People report such instances all the time. If you have an older business or an older home that you have converted for this purpose you may find you aren't alone in your endeavors. The number of people searching for haunted bed & breakfast locations continues to grow all the time.

There are many of them around that you can take a look at. Some of them have historical events behind them while others are due to events that took place at what once was a regular home or just another bed & breakfast on the map. Some of these locations are really getting a great deal of attention though.

There are quite a few bed & breakfast locations out there billed as being haunted in some way. Of course you can't choose if yours will be or not. However, if there are unexplained events then you need to keep track of them. You can certainly post this information online as well. It often gets plenty of attention from people seeking out such locations.

There is the chance though that advertising your bed & breakfast as one that is haunted is going to keep some people away. Not everyone believes in such encounters or wants to be a part of them. They may avoid staying at your location for that reason. Yet the number of people who are quite impressed by it is far more so you should have a good operation in place.

The internet is the best resource for finding these locations out there. You may be able to get some inside information about them locally, but only once you are in that particular area. By then it will be too late to stay there due to other plans you have made and the reservations other people have secured at the bed & breakfast. Keep that information for future reference though as you can try to stay there the next time you are in town.

In Groveland, California the Groveland Bed & Breakfast is believed to have a miner as a ghost there. He died there one night after going to bed tired from a hard day of mining. This ghost is harmless but many guests have reported their items moving from one part of the room to the next. This is especially true of cosmetics that women use while staying there. He is also known to mess with light switches and even to turn on water in the showers from time to time.

In New Hampshire plenty of guests stay at the Notchland Inn. Many have reported waking up to the bathroom being steamy as if the shower had been on. There are often messages written on the mirrors in the steam as well. Sometimes they are written with lipstick. Items are also known to be moved or even added to the room that weren't there before.

If you are looking for a unique twist in your search of a bed & breakfast, you may want to check out those that are thought to be haunted. This can add a new level of adventure to your travel plans that you haven't experienced before. Of course these types of locations aren't for the weak at heart as you do want to be able to get a good night of sleep while you are there.
