Here are a few sample of the listed B&B ghost stories:
Thornewood Castle, Lakewood, WA: Guests at this B&B have reported their share of chills and plenty of orbs have been recorded on guest photos taken here.
Texas White House, Fort Worth, TX: Interestingly, the ghost sightings of a man believed to be the husband of the only family who ever lived in the house occurs only when a single woman is staying in the room. He haunts his old bedroom (now the Lone Star Room.)
Grand Avenue B&B, Carthage, MO: While the "no smoking" rule is in effect for all living guests, the former owner is exempt. A ghostly whiff of his trademark cigar smoke wafts through the rooms when he visits here.
Honeybee Inn B&B, Horicon, WI: It's believed that Coton, a lumber baron haunts this B&B with a female companion. His beloved rocking chair, where he died, rocks by itself, and a woman in a long skirt has also been seen.
Penny Farthing Inn, St. Augustine, FL: Spirited occurrences include midnight tugs-of-war with the blankets, and glasses leaning over and clinking on sherry bottles. One guest described a young lady in his room when he awakened. A few days later, the owners' daughter described a strange lady in the dining room - identical to the guest's description.
Inn on Main Street, Weaverville, NC: All the ghostly happenings at this B&B occur on New Yeas Eve with reports of doors opening and closing on their own, and sounds of pictures falling off walls but never finding anything has fallen.
By The Side of The Road Bed and Breakfast, Harrisonburg, VA: When the innkeeper went to turn off the basement light, something grabbed her hand, yet nothing was there. Just about every day unexplained footsteps are heard in hallways, and doors open and close on there own.
Manchester Inn, Ocean Grove, NJ: Guests who check in to room 316 at this B&B have reported a sensation of someone literally pulling their leg but no one was there.
Cornerstone B&B, Philadelphia, PA: A floral scent precedes sightings of a ghostly female shape. Innkeepers claim she is an ethereal presence, and her signature perfume always occurs as she gently taps the foreheads of guests.
Inn at Jackson, Jackson, NH: The inns trusted workman, Jason committed suicide but seems to return to check on repairs at the inn. Guests have been awakened by hammering noises, primarily on the second and third floors.
