As an average young traveler I’m well aware of the benefits of using Airbnbs to get a good deal when I travel. In fact, sometimes I pick weird options that are cheaper, but a little… odd to say the least.  However, regardless of how eccentric and how out of the normal a place is, I can’t say I’ve ever stayed at a place that was haunted.  But if you’re into the haunted, creepy and mysterious, Airbnb actually has an assortment of scary places that you can rent and what better time than Halloween?

If you’re thinking that staying in a haunted Airbnb might be fun, you’re definitely not alone.  In fact,  there are several people who seek out these scary rentals just for the thrill.  While some rentals are just old houses with stories about supposed ghosts, other places have infamous backgrounds and some places are just downright strange.

So, if you’re ready for a vacation that’s a little spooky (and potentially less relaxing) you should definitely check out these Airbnbs.

Parks-Bowman Mansion: New Orleans, LA

This haunted Airbnb has become notorious through sites like Ranker and Buzzfeed. It’s located in one of the most haunted cities in the world and as a bonus It’s one of the cheaper rentals you can find because it’s a private room in a shared house.  While there are three guest rooms available to rent, the particularly haunted room you’ll want to rent is called the Haunted Bedroom…a nice original name. 

The owner states that the ghost who inhabits this room is a young girl in a yellow dress who lived in the house in the 1980s.  She’s known for being shy and not causing too much trouble.  Even though it’s unlikely you’ll see her, her presence is confirmed by many people.

What people have to say…

“I’d recommend this room to anyone, as long as you’re okay with possibly having the somewhat creaky floor suddenly start to creak as though someone’s slowly pacing at the foot of your bed at 2 AM as you try to get back to sleep.”

“The Boweman mansion is magical. You could walk through the house 100 times and see something different every time.”

“As advertised, the room is haunted. Our first night there we turned off the lights. 15 minutes later the lights switched off and on 3 times. There was a pause then the lights turned off and on until I touched the wall. The light switch was off the whole time. My girlfriend felt the bed vibrating as I checked the light. She fell asleep and had a dream of a shadowy female figure approaching the bed. Crazy.”

The Haunted Chamber Apartment, York, United Kingdom

While the details of this listing are few, the owner states that the haunted chamber apartment is called the madness chamber and that it’s haunted.  At over 600 years old, even if it’s not haunted this rental still reeks of ages past. 

What People Have To Say…

“No ghostly presence but it feels like it could be haunted just from the atmosphere! You will not be disappointed!”

“The apartment is in the perfect location with just the right touch of a bit of spooky”

“Though our 5-year old wasn’t able to conjure anything with the ouija board, we had fun trying”

The Manor Master Chamber, Saint Paul, MN

The Manor is another Airbnb listed on many “haunted” lists, yet the owner doesn’t heavily play to this angle. Instead, he describes the house as something “not run of the mill” and casually mentions that the house was “once voted most mysterious house in Saint Paul”.  The only other mention of the hauntedness of the house is that the owner books paranormal investigations, rituals and murder mystery dinners for an additional cost.

Chateau Pitau. Castle with Ghost, Vidnoye Russia

If you’re in Russia and looking to stay in a castle with tons of amenities and a ghost than this might be the place for you.  However, you’ll need to time your stay at just the right day of the week if you want to experience the haunted nature of the building. According to the owner “The Ghost of the castle appears weekly at midnight :-)”.

What People Have To Say…

“The castle is very spacious, very well decorated, we very much enjoy the indoor swimming pool, the comfortable kitchen and rooms and the game room, in few words, we truly felt at home”

“We were impressed by the gorgeous decoration , the wide swimming pool , the astonishing forest behind the backyard,etc.”

“We will fondly remember our time there”

Historic Civil War Farm House, Gettysburg

At first glance it appears that this is just a historic home, but the owner states that while she’s the only living host, there are many others who live there and that she has many a story to share.

 

What People Have To Say…

“My only disappointment was I didn’t see any spirits. “Are there any ghosts,” I asked? “Do you want there to be?” said Stephani.”

“We loved the ghost stories and got great restaurant and tour recommendations from her”

“Stephani said she has many paranormal visitors due to the house being used as a field hospital during the war. Lots of books in the room about this subject. “

Haunted 1890’s Home, Port Angeles

This home is one of the few who uses ghosts as a primary selling point.  The owner states that “There’s ample opportunity to share your stay with a ghost”.

What People Have To Say…

“the prospect of ghosts made our stay just a little bit more exciting than usual.”
