We Spent the Night at "The (Haunted) Inn at Wise."


As you may know, I have two blogs. Besides "Spirit Photographs," I also have "The Art of Positive Living" blog ( ) which I write and publish the first Sunday of each month unless otherwise stated.

My last blog post, "An Artistic Celebration," on 7/9/18 was about a trip to Southwest Virginia which Greg and I took a couple of weeks ago. On that post, I mentioned that we spent the night at the historic "The Inn at Wise" (which I highly recommend to everyone). For those who are intrigued by the paranormal, I think that you would love this place for it seems to be very haunted!

We arrived at the inn in the wee hours of the morning which is prime time for things that go bump in the night.

Right after we got there, I could hardly wait to start taking pictures because I had heard that this inn was haunted.

Just look at the large orbs,etc. that manifested in this photo! 

This is an old inn, and with so many people spending the night here, throughout the years, many things can happen. And it's the same for other inns, hotels, etc. Maybe a spirit liked a place so much in life, that he decided to go back there after death. Of course, tragedies like murders, etc. can occur in some of these places which can trap a spirit or ghost, hence, a place can become haunted.

I also took some pictures inside the old inn.

I took this photo (above) of a common room which is probably used for relaxing, playing games, etc. I had very little idea of what this room looked like before I took the picture since it was in semi-darkness.

I'm glad I did take this photograph since there seems to be quite a bit of ectoplasm here, some of which is very bright which is a hallmark of some ectoplasm.

It's not just my opinion that this inn is haunted, since the people that run the inn say that at least one room has some supernatural things going on in it!

It's room number 337!

There's a plaque on the wall near the door that says, "Room 337 has provided sanctuary to many. One was Lois Tracy who painted here.* Another was fictional journalist Henry Jernigan from Sharyn Mc Crumb's novel 'The Devil Amongst the Lawyers.'"

We didn't know about this haunted room until we got there, and we'd already booked another room. Too bad, maybe next time! Of course, if you'd like to go and try out that room yourself...! Please email me and let me know how it went. Good luck!


*My grandmother actually took art from Mrs. Tracy many years ago. Also, when I was growing up, my family and I spent the night at an old inn in Asheville, North Carolina that Mrs. Tracy either owned or managed. Bet that inn was haunted as well!
