Happily haunted…

Inside the old servant’s quarters at the Merrill House, there’s more than just a spooky presence, there’s a history of unusual sightings. 

Said to be frequently visited by the ghosts of several young children and the infamous Marchioness of Lorne, (who passed away in 1914), the Haunted Room at Merrill has become an overnight attraction for fearless tourists, brave locals and ghost-busters alike. After all what could be more fun than playing hide and shriek with the resident ghosts.

Inn owners and ghoul-keepers Jordan and Evert share curious tales of paranormal encounters in the upstairs bedroom (number 301 if you’re dying to know). To making the most this ghostly situation guests can book a haunted house experience complete with a virtual reality tour, Zimbabwean voodoo dolls, spirit boards and spooky cocktails this October. And, they are there at the right time, tag along on a haunted tour of the town of Picton.

Not free this Halloween? Fear not. Those who don’t mind sharing their stay with a spooky friend or two also can make their own fright night in the upstairs bedroom throughout the year.
