That is - if being scared brings you enjoyment!
Some of the greatest haunted lodging adventures await you at the Historic St James Hotel, located in the mountains of northern New Mexico and seen as one of the most remarkable Old West lodges. Established as a saloon by Henri Lambert in 1872, its original name was Lambert's Inn. During the Cimarron's wilder days, the hotel was a witness to more than 25 murders, which contributed significantly to his reputation of a place of violence. Today the St James Hotel is believed to host some of the restless spirits, identified by many visitors, who come here to experience haunted lodging adventures.
Guests are offered fourteen rooms designed in the elegant style of XIX century furnishings. Telephone and television are not available. Adjacent to the hotel is the two-storey Annex, providing additional ten rooms that accommodate a wide range of sleeping options. Visitors can choose from single and double rooms, all featuring telephones, television and private bath.
Perhaps one of the most haunted hotels in the world, Myrtles Plantation Bed and Breakfast is nestled north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It is difficult to imagine that this beautiful mansion is marked by violence and dark past. Built by General Bradford in 1796, Myrtle Plantation is a vivid example of Southern Antebellum architecture, blended with the Gothic decor. With at least ten murders and one suicide committed within its walls, no wonder that Myrtles Plantation is seen as the most haunted in the region! A frequent visitor to the mansion is the ghost of the former slave Cleo, hung for two murders.
Visitors eager to meet with the exciting haunted lodging adventures in Myrtle Plantation are offered mystery weekends and tours, as well as overnight stays. You'll find here 22 guest rooms, the dining room and winding staircase, everything of a type of southern mansion of its time. Each room features antiques from the 18th & 19th century, purchased by the Ruffin Gray Family during the period of 1834-1888. Among others the Baccarat crystal chandelier makes itself conspicuous, seen as the most prominent attraction of the mansion.
Built in 1893 in Sheridan, Wyoming, Historic Sheridan Inn is believed to be haunted by the spirit of its housekeeper Kate Arnold, who resided in the mansion for 65 years. Recognized as one of the most popular destinations of haunted lodging adventures, the Inn is a subject to a great number of tours and overnight stays. Since 1964 it has been one of the seventeen National Historic Landmarks of Wyoming, and in 1994 it was the recipient of Maurine Carley Memorial Award for Historic Preservation from Wyoming's Historical Society. Currently Historic Sheridan Inn is owned by Sheridan Heritage Center Inc, the non-profit organization.
