Choose between the Original Haunted Ghost Tour, which departs at 7 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday, or the 2.0 Tour, which departs at 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. During the original tour, guides lead groups of up to 13 guests through the Victorian-era structure that once served as a speakeasy and brothel. The Haunted 2.0 Tour digs deeper into the seedy underbelly of Shaker's history as a former bordello.
For the truly adventurous, staying in the haunted penthouse gets guests an overnight dose of paranormal activity, as well as a complimentary ghost tour. Guests can cozy up by the wood fireplace, take a dip in the jacuzzi, and enjoy the breeze from the private outdoor deck. But once the sun sets, the room can transition from cozy to creepy. Previous tenants have reported moving objects and spirits, which could show up during your stay. Hotel stays also include a Death in the Afternoon absinthe cocktail as well as a tote bag.
