Strater Hotel

Built originally on a railroad in 1880, guests and employees of this hotel have reported sightings, so don’t be surprised if you see a man in period clothing hanging out in the halls. If you stay here, you can check out the “Ghost Diary” in every room, where people write down their experiences.

Leland House Bed and Breakfast

There’s something about bed and breakfasts that feel eerie… especially this one! Guests have said that they’ve woken up early in the morning to find an elderly man in a white hat standing over the bed. Room Six is as ominous as its number, many guests reporting hearing laughter in their room with no one else there and feeling somebody sit down on the bed next to them.

Rochester Hotel

This hotel is right across from the spooky bed and breakfast. Rumors are it’s just as haunted and that a woman in an old-fashioned dress wanders the hotel at night.
