This rustic cabin backing onto a misty, snowcapped mountain is the perfect cold-weather vacation spot. Start a fire in the fireplace, gaze out the window, and enjoy that delicious creepy feeling as you watch the fog drift across the back yard and up the creaky wooden stairs. You’re perfectly safe—just don’t recite any weird incantations that you find in the basement!

An abandoned former church

This Newport, Rhode Island condominium complex started its life as the Trinity Church Guild Hall and Parish, then was abandoned for decades under mysterious circumstances. It’s since been converted into upscale residences, but on moonlit October nights, you can practically hear the ghosts of its former occupants ringing the long-disappeared church bell.

Built at the turn of the century and then abandoned for fifty years, this ghostly New England mansion might have housed the widow of a sailor lost at sea. Perched on the rocky shore of a historic fishing town, the house was witness to the 1846 storm that drowned 65 of the village’s men and boys. Look closely at its glowing windows, and you can almost hear a ghostly wail in the crashing of the waves.

Tucked snugly into a hillside, this home is isolated from its neighbors in every way. By day, the mountain views are spectacular. But once the sun goes down, the spectacular views are of you. In your bedroom. Sleeping. Yikes!

A Gothic fortress

Although this home was built in 2008, its looming façade and view of West Point Military Academy give it a historic weight and a scary vibe: West Point is home to a historic cemetery that houses the graves of hundreds of soldiers who fell as long ago as the American Revolutionary War. On Halloween night, it’s easy to imagine a regiment of ghosts pacing the stone steps of its tiered patio, staring out of its many windows, or floating over its carved wooden balustrades.
