Due to the large number of ghosts they can hold, haunted houses are consistently scarier than cursed sleeping bags, possessed lean-tos, and ectoplasmic studio apartments. Tiptoe through a real-life haunted dwelling with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a two-hour nighttime paranormal experience for two at The Morse Mill Hotel in Morse Mill (a $140 value).

Spirit-seekers can exercise their sixth sense during a terrifying two-hour guided tour of this eerie 19th-century hotel. Visitors set out in groups of less than 10 to explore the spine-tingling site, which includes a burial ground for Confederate soldiers, sinister relics of Al Capone's old brothel, and a guest registry spookily signed by history's two most feared outlaws: Jesse James and Charlie Chaplin. Tour-goers examine the gravesite of Bertha Gifford, the first female serial killer in America, then descend into an intact slave dungeon. An expert paranormal guide leads amateur ghost-gumshoes through the 33-room, four-story Morse manse, providing advice on where to find the friendliest demons. If they dare, guests are encouraged to snap photos to document their occult encounters with phantoms, specters, or eerily expensive mini bars.

Morse Mill Hotel

Originally built as a one-room house in 1816, the Morse Mill Hotel grew to 5,300 square feet under the watchful eye of engineer John Morse, a former Confederate officer and suspected warlock. In its present state, the hotel may house ghostly figures who once took up residence in one of its 33 rooms. Jesse James and company signed their marks in the guest register, and a famous female serial killer, Bertha Gifford, was kept in the hotel's employ; a nearby gravesite marks her resting place. A burial ground for Confederate soldiers, relics of Al Capone's old brothel, and a dungeon also add to the sinister air. An expert paranormal guide leads amateur ghost gumshoes through the 33-room, four-story Morse manse, providing advice on where to find the friendliest long-term residents. If they dare, guests are encouraged to snap photos to document their occult encounters with phantoms, specters, or eerily expensive minibars.
