1. Haunted Castle House, Brumley, MO

Airbnb
This former hospital and funeral home features a cemetery in the back garden.

This 169-year-old Victorian house was named one of the most haunted homes in the Midwest, according to the listing. Featuring four bedrooms and two baths, it can accommodate up to eight, but just make sure everyone who dares to visit is okay with a little paranormal activity. The place has been a hospital and funeral home in the past, and the owners write that they can’t promise you won’t experience a ghostly encounter. If you're feeling courageous, feel free to visit the cemetery in the back garden when you need some fresh air.

3. Parks-Bowman Mansion: The Haunted Bedroom, New Orleans, LA

Airbnb
It's said that a child ghost can sometimes be spotted in this bedroom.

Care to share a room with a ghost? According to the listing, some guests have said that they’ve seen a young girl in a yellow dress from the 1890s in this bedroom rental. But the owners do add that she’s very shy, so you might not see her. If she doesn’t say hi, you can still get your scare on while out and about in the city — New Orleans has plenty of spooky cemeteries and haunted places to visit.

4. Historic Ghost Cottage, Savannah, GA

Airbnb
A ghost named Laura allegedly haunts this cottage in Savannah, GA.

Officially named “Laura’s Cottage,” this home from 1799 is said to feature a ghost — named Laura, in case you didn’t catch that — who lived there for 50 years. According to one report, she occasionally comes out to do things such as flicker lights or open up windows. This one bedroom, one bath can accommodate up to four people, and also was used in the filming of Robert Redford’s drama, “The Conspirator.”

The rental is for a private bedroom in the home, and the owner — who lives there as well — says while she’s the only living host, there are many others who reside with her. She adds that she’s happy to share stories with you, and notes that all the ghosts are friendly.
