For those seeking a spooky, paranormal vacation, New York state’s Shanley Hotel may just hold the ticket.

Located in New York’s Shawagunk Mountains, this 35 bedroom hotel was once a place of ill-repute. Part of the property operated as a speak-easy and brothel during the prohibition era. There is even a secret chamber in the basement.

The property has a particularly eerie history – since the hotel was first built the original owner’s three newborn infants died. Another child, belonging to an on-site barber, died after falling into a well. Several other mysterious deaths have been linked to the hotel.

Rooms prices start at $95 per night – if you dare!
