"Beautiful b&b with lots of character! And definitely haunted!! I had gone to this b&b on a recommendation of a friend, and hadn't known anything of the history, or the possibility of it being haunted. My husband and I had an angel suite on the second floor with a beautiful balcony view of the ocean. We had gone out to dinner, and after returning passed out. Around 3:30 in the morning I awoke to vibrations and ringing in my ears. I could not move my body or call out to my husband. Almost a state of paralysis. All I can do is my move my eyes around, and with my heart beating extremely fast, I felt as though I was having a full blown panic attack. The dresser next to me began to get loud taps, almost as though a radiator had kicked on through the dresser. Then I heard a woman, with an old-time accent exclaim loudly, "this is my HOUSE" she then repeated the phrase three times with a pronunciation of HOUSE. She almost had a wealthy smug tone, and was definitely angry. Then suddenly I heard a tiny bit further down the hall a man whistling a hauntingly melodic tone I've never heard before. Then the ringing and vibrations subsided, And It took me an hour to calm my heart down. Needless to say it was definitely an experience to remember. We left first thing the next day!"
"My husband and I stayed here several years ago with another couple of friends to see if we would experience any paranormal activity. The four of us were the ONLY guests in the hotel, so the front desk was kind enough to give us the keys to come and go as we please throughout the night because all the employees go home! We were told there was no phone there. Just that alone was creepy!!! We experienced the clock radio go out of tune in-between stations and the volume raised and lowered by itself a few times. In the middle of the night, my husband and I both woke out of a sound sleep to a female voice calling for help. It sounded very far away, but very clear and calm. She kept saying, "HELP. PLEASE HELP ME!" We jumped out of bed and ran to the windows. Didn't see a soul outside. Then we kept hearing loud slamming, like from a car door. There were no vehicles parked outside! We were so scared, we were literally crawling around our room on hands and knees!! We finally got brave enough to run next door to our friends room, only to not have our banging on their door answered. We just couldn't believe they could sleep through all of the commotion. The slamming doors and the female voice finally stopped and soon the sun came up. First thing in the morning, we went to talk to our friends who just could NOT believe what had happened and that they could not even hear us pounding on their door to wake them up. The three of them had decided to go down for breakfast as I went to take a shower back in our room. After showering, I was standing at the sink looking closely into the mirror as I was trying to dry my face and all of a sudden that same female voice from the night before, whispered my name as if standing directly in front of me, clear as day....."JENNIFER!" We will never forget our trip to the Historic Broadway Hotel and I hope to return again one day!"
"My boyfriend and I decided to spend New Year’s Eve at the Lizzie Borden B&B. I spoke to Jack when I made the reservation and he was very pleasant and gracious describing the accommodations and all about the house and its history. I called December 28th to confirm our reservation for December 30th and to ask if any meals would be provided and spoke with Robin who was also very nice. Robin was our host on the evening we checked in. She seemed knowledgeable and genuinely excited to share facts about the history of the house and her personal experiences with us (Thanks Robin!). The second night Danielle was our host and was equally gracious and knowledgeable. Breakfast was prepared by Jack and was better the second morning as we went down as Jack was cooking instead of waiting until he finished. The rooms were very clean as were the bathrooms and the bed was comfortable. All things considered it was an average B&B, I say this because at a nightly rate of $275 I did not appreciate the fact that we had to leave our room from 11:00 to 3:00 as not to interrupt the Lizzie Borden tours held during the day. Although we were told that we didn’t have to actually leave the house but that people would be going in and out of our room during tours. What else were we to do considering we booked two nights with the hope of relaxing IN OUR ROOM. The surrounding neighborhood does not have much to offer as far as entertainment and honestly if we wanted to be out and about we would have made arrangements with another B&B in a more desirable neighborhood. We voiced our disappointment to the owner LeeAnn whom reluctantly greeted us in her pajama bottoms and a sweatshirt in the kitchen as we followed her to the museum/gift shop. She rather rudely replied that all of that was in your email confirmation, which I didn’t receive. I CALLED to confirm my reservation, had I received an email confirmation my call would not have been necessary. If your expectations are low and professionalism is not a must you will be satisfied with Lizzie Borden’s B&B."
"We had the distinct pleasure of not only staying the night at the Bucksville House but investigating the claims of paranormal activity there with our group, RISEUP Paranormal, based in Tiverton, R.I. Before addressing that aspect, we need to acknowledge the wonderful proprietors, Barb and Joe Szollosi, who could not have been more welcoming, warm and accomodating. And the property itself? Stunningly beautiful. The house has been painstakingly appointed with colonial style atrifacts and accomodations and walking in is truly taking a step back an era gone by. In terms of paranormal activity, I can state without hesitation that indeed the house has some odd, but non-threatening things going on inside and the stories told to us by Barb were amazing. All we can say is: say hello to whoever shares the Blue Room with you. :) http://www.riseupparanormal.com/hauntings/case_files/Bucksville_House.htm"
"Very nice inn, great atmosphere and location. I don't remember any ghosts but it's still a great place to stay."
"My husband and I got married there, it is such a cute and beautiful place. The owner was very nice."
"My sister and I stayed in the A.P. Hill Room on June 11, 2012 on our "Haunted Road Trip" to Gettysburg and back. We chose this room because Grant (from Ghost Hunters) stayed here and caught video evidence of a moving picture frame and the many stories of a moving rocking chair. The room is spacious and comfortable. I loved that they have cutouts in the wallpaper showing the signatures from the 1800's on the walls. The bed is comfortable enough, but very, very squeaky. We did not experience anything paranormal or catch anything out of the ordinary with our camera we had set up that night. I enjoyed reading some of the comments left by previous guests in the memory books, but it seems as if most people do not experience any activity in the room. Breakfast was very good - we had cheesy eggs, bacon, toast, fruit and really good coffee. Overall, it was an excellent Bed and Breakfast and I would recommend it as a historical location, but not a paranormal one."
"My sister and I stayed in the Jennie Wade room of the Farnsworth House Inn on June 12, 2012 as part of our "Haunted Road Trip" to Gettysburg and back. The Jennie Wade room looks very creepy, with a large painting of a monkey playing a lute right next to the bed and an oversized headshot of Jennie Wade herself directly across from the bed. The room was dark and hot, but spacious. The bed was comfortable. The only real complaint I have would be that the bathroom was far too dark, with dark wallpaper, hunter green fixtures and only a single lightbulb over the sink to light the entire space, as the others had burned out. The shower was a corner unit and had no space for shampoo and soap. We did not have any paranormal experiences in this room, which makes sense as the room is not a part of the original house. The room's windows open up to the patio dining area, which could be annoying, but as it had been raining that day, there were no diners during our stay. The garden area is quite large and lovely - there is a nice fountain and pond with large koi, a little waterfall and statues tucked in amongst the flowers. It is one of the prettiest B&B gardens I have seen. That evening, we decided to have dinner at their period-style restaurant. The servers all dressed in period costumes and served us pickled watermelon (blech!), spoon bread and Jennie Wade bread with apple butter (yum!). I ordered the chicken pot pie, sweet potato pudding and pumpkin fritters, all which were very good. It was a bit on the pricey side, but well-worth it for the amount of food and the atmosphere. Breakfast was served practically right outside our door, on the garden patio area and was complimentary. I choose the french toast, sausage and coffee and everything was good. Overall, the Farnsworth House Inn was an interesting place to stay, but I wouldn't stay in the Jennie Wade room if you are looking for anything paranormal!"
"My sister and I stayed in the Samuel Clemens Room in the Golden Lamb Inn on June 17th. This was our last stop on a week-long road trip to Gettysburg and back. We were tired and did not explore the hotel very much. We found the room to be very inviting and comfortable, except that the beds were extremely high off of the ground - we literally had to climb into bed that night. A welcome letter was left in the room and gave a bit of the history of the inn and Mark Twain, which was a nice touch. Most of the doors to the various rooms in the inn were open, with a velvet rope across the threshold, so that you could peer into each of the rooms until more guests arrived. Many of the doors were closed by that evening, which factored in to us not doing an investigation that evening. We did not personally feel that the inn was haunted anyway and had no paranormal experiences during our stay. The Golden Lamb Inn has a very cute little store on the lower level, but I did not get a chance to really browse. There is both a restaurant and a tavern. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was not included in the room rate. It was a little on the pricey side, but was generously-portioned and very good. Overall, the Golden Lamb Inn was excellent. I do wish that breakfast had been included or that it was more specifically explained that it was separate (apparently a complimentary continental breakfast is only included for weekday stays), but that is certainly not a deal-breaker. The city of Lebanon seems very nice and I would have liked to take the train ride nearby if we had a little more time."
"my (now husband)and I stayed here for a weekend, the staff was great and the dining was nice, very private and intimate, however, when we asked them about any ghostly happenings they said they knew of no hauntings or of anything ever happening there. Still interesting place to stay and worth it."
"I stayed here with my Aunt several years ago for our annual haunted ladies getaway. The inn was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and efficient and free parking was available. This is no small thing in Newport! We did not have any paranormal encounters here, but that does not necessarily mean there are no ghosts here. The jail house gate in the hallway was a spooky touch. My goody two shoes self took a childish delight in posing behind the door. Ghosts or no ghosts, this inn is an excellent value and sits in the middle of all you could want to see or do in Newport. Sweet dreams."
"Stayed there April 5, 2012,in the Victorian suite & heard doors to sitting room open & close couple of times, heard footsteps & heard clothes rustling when me & my husband were perfectly still. Used my pendulum to contact spirit, it went crazy!!!"
"My sister and I stayed in the "most haunted" Elsa Lemp room on the top floor in June 2011. We arrived for the Sunday night Fried Chicken dinner, which was expensive but well worth the price! I highly recommend the meal. The room itself was comfortable with a queen-size bed and a whirlpool tub; however, the price is rather expensive for the accommodations themselves. The entire house is beautiful and at night they allow you to roam around - only the kitchen and bar are off-limits. The only problem is that other guests will undoubtedly by "hunting" as well, and in our case, were more of the thrill-seeking caliber, which made an actual hunt very difficult. Despite being billed as a haunted house and staying in the most haunted room, we did not encounter any paranormal activity either on a personal level or with our equipment."
"Checked in yesterday. Very impressed with the decor and history of the hotel. I'm sharing a room with a colleague. First thing this morning she asks why I covered her up in the night. I tell her I didn't. The blinds in the bathroom glad been rearranged as well. So, we are fairly certain we are sharing our room with a spirit."
"I have stayed overnight at this hotel twice and can say with certainty that it is a lovely place with wonderful service. I am a tour guide with a local PLymouth company that offers history and ghost tours. Not a week goes by without a report about the John Carver Inn from one or more of our guests. Nearly all paranormal experiences occur on the third floor or in the on-site restaurant. The most frequent reprts are the sounds of feet running up and down the hallway or phantom knocks on the doors. Lights, radios and televisions turn on and off by themselves and the ice buckets have a habit of moving on their own as well. Glasses move or rattle at the bar and, on occassion, glowing specters are seen at a corner table late at night. This building is not terribly old by Plymouth standards, but there were once student physicians learning their craft in apartment buildings that once stood here in the 19th century. The oldest graveyard in the country sits behind this inn, filled to brimming with history. It likely offered up many apportunities for clandestine practice surgeries as well. All in all, a beautiful place. Not a terrifying location, but surely a haunted one! And, of course, don't stay here without joining one of my ghost tours, departing right from the portico out front."
