Halloween at the (Haunted) Shelburne Hotel
We love Halloween. As the oldest continuously operating hotel in Washington, our hauntingly beautiful interiors and storied past make The Shelburne the perfect spot to spend spooky season. We have ghoulish goodies for you all month long – séances, tarot readings, tasty spirits, spooky Bingo, trick-or-treating, ghost tours, and a special room rate. Here are all the ways you can join us for fun and frights in October at Shelburne Hotel.
Is it a Guest or a Ghost?
(If you happen to have a ghost encounter during your stay, be sure to stop by the front desk and record it in our ghost journal.)
Spooky BINGO Night at Shelburne Pub
Thursday, October 19, 5-7pm, FREE
Victorian Séances at Shelburne
Step back in time and experience what a Victorian Séance would have been like. Hosted at the historic Shelburne Hotel. These sessions use the traditional tools of the Victorian séance to educate about the history of Spiritualism. These séances are for educational and entertainment purposes only. This is not a demonstration of mediumship or a way to contact the deceased.
Reservations required. 18+ only.
Potent Potions in the Pub
Meet one of our spooky spirits – the liquid kind – in the pub! Our Halloween drinks menu is available in the pub all month long. Try Georginna’s Landing or maybe you’ll end up Under the Stairwell with George.
Self-guided Ghost Tours
Throughout the month of October, we offer self-guided ghost tours of the hotel. Stop by the front desk for a Shelburne Hotel Spirit Guide for an introduction to our guests who never checked out. You are welcome to wander the halls of the hotel to see if you can catch a glimpse of one of our house haunts. Don’t forget the garden, you might meet Annie May under the linden tree!
