Very interesting and taken from a skeptic as well as believer's perspective.

It was fine. It was different than what I had expected but was still worthwhile and my party enjoyed... plus, we made new friends with another group! The owner is a really nice guy who knows A LOT about everything paranormal... you'll find yourself taking notes on things you want to research at a later time! I'd recommend it.

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.

About 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.
