This was a ton of fun. Although the start-time we were given was incorrect (so we got there late), it was still an excellent experience.

Yes. The place was very dirty, shrugged terribly and the staff was not knowledgeable

My husband and I had a blast. It well exceeded our expectations.

The zombie 5k, organized by the Haunted Cottage was a bad experience. The event didn't deliver on what was promised (medals, man-made obstacles, racing bibs, and life flags). The roads weren't even closed (zombies were chasing people into oncoming traffic). The organizer's expenses for this race were definitely minimal. Apparently, the race distance wasn't even 5k. The event could be good some day, but this was a very event.

This was the worst event. It was supposed to be a 5K run. It was only 2.5 miles. There were supposed to be obstacle courses. There were none. The streets were not closed down for the run, so we were running in the streets with cars driving. There was a finish line, but we do not know how we placed. There were supposed to be zombies, but there were only about 6 to 8 people dressed up as zombies (the ratio to runners was horrible). Groupon did give me a full refund for the event. Groupon should not work with the Haunted Cottage ever again, as I believe it was a scam. They made a lot of money, and provided nothing.

they did not perform the service listed in the groupon. Held a 5K race without even bibs, flags, and no medals as promised for all who "lived". Also, street race where they made it sound like a warrior dash zombie race. Hardly any zombies. Did not even have the street shut down making it very dangerous.

The actual event was nothing like what was described. It bordered on a scam. The 5K run was 20% short on distance and none of the entertaining parts of the Zombie Run actually existed. The Haunted Cottage is not even a registered business organization in West Virginia.

This company sponsored a Zombie 5k. It was the most disorganized race I have ever attended. The owners were very unapologetic for their mistakes and kept blaming Groupon. They offered no refunds and did not use proceeds appropriately, but instead put them in their bank" for their own business despite it being a charity run for Feed the Homeless.. I would never do business here again. Luckily, Groupon refunded our money.

The event was hyped up a lot more than what it turned out to be. There were no obstacles or anything else that was talked about on groupon or the site.

From Our Editors

Though spectral forms and shadowy figures still reside in The Haunted Cottage, its greatest legacy is as the occasional vacation home of assassin John Wilkes Booth. Also known as the Booth House, The Haunted Cottage is home to paranormal researcher Vince Wilson, who helms the haunted abode's ghost tours and maintains the paranormal library and history museum, where guests can spy a vampire skeleton among other supernatural exhibits. All this knowledge pours from Vince's mouth during tours and investigations, which pair breakdowns of the house's 200-year history with actual equipment designed to catch ghosts, from cameras and digital recorders to EMF meters.

The Haunted Cottage also strives to school spirit-seekers with paranormal-research training that cycles through parapsychology topics such as extrasensory perception, hypnosis, and psychic healing.
