Trick or Retreat: Spooky Bed and Breakfasts for Some Extra Halloween Thrills

Are you ready to take your Halloween weekend to the next level? Prepare for a spine-chilling adventure as we delve into the realm of spooky bed and breakfasts. These are the places where the line between the natural and supernatural blurs. Get ready to learn more about their haunted history, eerie ambiance, and ghostly encounters. All of them will send shivers down your spine.

Ghosts Among the Guests

Imagine checking into a centuries-old mansion, where whispers of ghostly figures and mysterious happenings haunt the halls. Bed and breakfasts like the Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana and the Stanley Hotel in Colorado are famous for their spine-tingling stories. At the Myrtles Plantation, guests have reported ghostly sightings and inexplicable footsteps. On the other hand, the Stanley Hotel is said to be the inspiration behind Stephen King’s “The Shining.” These accommodations offer more than just a bed. They also give you a chance to spend the night in the company of lingering spirits.


Haunted Histories

At these eerie inns, the walls have ears, and they’re eager to share their tales of the supernatural. Picture yourself cozied up by a crackling fireplace. All of that wile listening to spine-chilling stories of long-departed residents who refuse to leave. Inns like the Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast in Massachusetts, known for its connection to a famous axe murder, and the Queen Mary in California, a retired ocean liner with a haunted reputation, offer guests a chance to embrace their inner ghost hunter and explore the mysteries that lie within.

Embrace the Spooky Vibes

Halloween isn’t confined to just a single night at these bed and breakfasts – it’s a year-round affair. Cobweb-covered corners, antique furnishings that seem to hold secrets, and dimly lit corridors contribute to the eerie atmosphere. The Haunted Mansion Bed & Breakfast in Alabama takes its theme to heart, with rooms named after famous horror figures and spooky decor that transports you into a different world. Whether you’re a horror enthusiast or simply looking for a unique escape, these accommodations will envelop you in an ambiance that keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Midnight Tours

For the truly daring, many of these inns offer midnight tours that explore the depths of their haunted history. Guided by the eerie glow of lanterns, you’ll traverse dimly lit hallways, hidden passageways, and rooms with chilling tales to tell. The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum in West Virginia, a former mental institution turned bed and breakfast, offers paranormal tours that immerse you in its history of mysterious events and ghostly encounters. These tours provide a rare chance to experience the stories you’ve heard in an intimate, spine-tingling setting.


Eerie Breakfasts

Even breakfast takes on a supernatural twist at these unique inns. Picture yourself enjoying a morning meal that’s as delightfully spooky as it is delicious. The Ghosts & Gravestones Bed and Breakfast in Massachusetts serves up coffin-shaped pastries and “bloody” beverages, setting the tone for an otherworldly dining experience. It’s a playful way to extend the Halloween magic into your morning routine and add an extra layer of excitement to your stay at one of the spooky bed and breakfasts.
