  • $10 for a two-hour grand tour, ghost hunt, and Ghost Hunting 101 class (up to a $20 value)

Ghost-hunting starts at 8 p.m., 10 p.m., or midnight Thursday-Saturday. Paranormal researcher Vince Wilson guides a grand tour and ghost hunt of The Haunted Cottage, during which guests record EVP, use EMF meters, and get schooled in the basics of specter searching with a workshop in ghost hunting.

The overnight expedition starts at 8 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and select Wednesdays, and includes a history lesson, a workshop, and a walk-through followed by EMF readings, EVP recordings, and spooky psychic experiments such as time trance regression.

Children 5 or younger are admitted at no cost.

The Haunted Cottage

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.

Customer Reviews

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.
