  • East Room

    My husband and I are currently staying in the East room. Last night CeeCee the cat refused to leave my side. She layed on the bed as i was getting ready and all of a sudden im standing by the lounger and CeeCee is up on the bed by the pillows on right side of the bed all of a sudden i hear someone messing with the window blinds rattling them and CeeCee immediately turned her head to the sound and never left me all night . She slept right beside me if i went downstairs anc went back to my room alone she ran upstairs ahead of me as to protect me from something. Now I sm not a ghost chaser but I and my son and my late grandfather have abilities and i hear the dead talk so Garden House definitely has something there. I spend the night again tonight will update if I hear voices in my room.

  • Absolutely Haunted

    My dear friend and I are paranormal investigators and booked several nights in the West Room. Over the course of our evenings, we were able to capture many shadows, light anomalies, and even a full figure in photos in the downstairs parlor; a lady sitting in the chair by the fireplace. Our K2 went wild during this time. A piece of candy we placed on a plate at the table in the dining room was moved about an inch and a half, correlating with the reports of a ghost child. A camera we had filming in the West Room while we were downstairs malfunctioned and shut down completely, despite the fact that it was fully charged beforehand, and worked properly afterwards. The pinnacle of the experience was when I went to the hall bathroom by myself. There was a couple with a dog staying in the room adjacent to the hall bathroom and not wishing to disturb them with the noise from the fan which comes on automatically with the light, I used my cellphone light. After using the restroom I began washing my face, and heard footsteps coming towards the restroom. Thinking it was my friend coming to use the restroom I went on scrubbing my face. The light in the hallway came on (motion sensor) and the footsteps stopped directly outside the door. The water was off and I could hear this clearly, as the floors are in great shape but quite old, and pop and creak as old floors do. Looking behind me in the mirror I thought I could see a shadow under the door, cast by the hall light. But she didn't say anything. After a moment or two of silence, I called out to her. Nothing. Silence. After a few more moments the hall light went out. I called out once again. Silence. I turned and gathered my things quietly and opened the door, expecting to see someone waiting for the facilities. Nothing. The hallway was empty and (due to the floors) I would have clearly heard someone had they walked away and left. There weren't any footsteps leaving, and the light wasn't re-activated until I stepped into the hall. I went to the room and asked her why she didn't knock or say anything, and she just looked at me. She had not gone out of the room, she'd been on the phone with her son. It wasn't until breakfast on our final morning that Chris told us about the experience of his good friend Arif, years before, when he'd stayed there alone, that I realized FOR SURE that I had indeed experienced a reported paranormal event! That wasn't one I had uncovered in research so I wasn't expecting it. Between the photographic evidence, the camera malfunction in the West Room (also reported), the K2 hits, the EVPs, and the personal experience in the hallway, I can say conclusively that we believe Garden House is an active location. Beyond that, it is absolutely beautiful, comfortable beds, great water pressure, and fabulous breakfast. History is indeed alive, in this place. Chris is a congenial and wonderful host, who stayed and visited with us when I'm sure he had many other things to do. We were never truly afraid, just a tad unnerved at times, but as that was the purpose of our visit, it goes with the territory. My team looks forward to visiting the Garden House again, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in experiencing paranormal activity.

  • Hearing unexplained voices

    My wife and I slept in the West Room at the Garden House in Hannibal Missouri both Thursday and Friday nights February 21 and 22, 2019. Thursday night, both of us woke up hearing men in lengthy conversation in low voices downstairs. We were the only guests in the house and Chris, the proprietor assured us he was not in conversation with anyone that evening. My wife also reported to Chris that there was no spoon at her breakfast place-setting Friday morning...just after being told by Chris that it had been a common occurance for guests to notice missing pieces of flatware the following morning at breakfast. We never felt threatened in this wonderful period mansion and would definitely like to return for another stay at the Garden House.
