Ghostly Kiss

08 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I had moved to a new city and had found an apartment overlooking a nice street. That there was a graveyard right behind the house was something I figured much later. Anyway, this was a first-floor house with huge windows in the bedroom. The air was fresh and minty so I left the windows open at night. Right beneath my window, the guard of the building used to sit with his dog. One night, at around 3 am I was woken up by the guard’s dog’s manic barking. I was just thinking to myself why this dog is barking like mad and why isn’t the guard doing anything about it, when all of a sudden, the dog went quiet. My room became a bit extra chilly almost immediately and I

Haunted by a Dark Spirit

04 June 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Let me be the first to say this is going to be a long post. I wrote it as a means to, I suppose cope with all that was happening at the time, and while it is the high-lights of the insanity that happened. I think that I was genuinely being hunted or… haunted by something evil. Even worse, I wasn’t alone in witnessing this thing’s work. Let me know what you think. I was twenty-one years old when my grandmother who raised me, died of cancer. Her death was an extremely emotional, and mental toll that forced me away from college, and made me return home to the house she and my grandfather built. It wasn’t ever finished, a three-bedroom two-bath home surrounded by the red clay of the

My House has A Doppelganger Problem

28 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

My name is Emerson Del, I’m a small-time musician from Toronto and this story changed me from being a skeptic. In 2018, I lived in the basement of my aunt and uncle’s house. It was fully furnished and had a full kitchen and bathroom down there, in short, I rarely went upstairs to see my aunt and uncle because I had everything I needed in my place. One day my Aunt and Uncle were discussing how they were going to go up to the cottage, I heard them talking from downstairs. When I heard the door close I assumed that they had decided to take one car and head up there. Later that day, I was cleaning up when I heard a knock at the door. I thought, “That’s strange

The Blue Dress

25 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Calke Abbey: Visited there a few years ago and had a strange experience. In one of the big staterooms you get to, whilst standing by a fireplace, I suddenly became aware, as I looked down to the floor, I was where a very fine, cornflower blue, crinoline style dress – I could feel myself wearing it and I could hear it “swooshing” as I moved. The fire was alight ( wasn’t really). I swear, for a couple of minutes, I was transported back, or taken over by someone memories!!! Submitted by Joanne

A Ghostly Funeral

14 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

When I was a kid we used to visit family in another part of town. I knew all the kids around so would often go on my own for the afternoon. On my way back from visiting a friend I took a shortcut. It led through a wooded area where there was an old cemetery. I looked at the old stones, most of them unreadable, as I walked past. I continued on the path and came to the stream with a wide bridge. My sneakers made a stomping sound on the old boards. As I was about halfway I saw a funeral party approaching. The sun was close to setting and was in my eyes but the group was all dressed in black and several men at the front were

Ghosts of Tripadvisor

03 May 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I was just googling around and found some coverage for the FIRST book based on reviews from Tripadvisor. Published in mid-2020, the book is a collection of reviews of haunted experiences of people staying hotels as found in Tripadvisor reviews? Really? Well, that makes me a little angry because, in fact, I published the FIRST book of Tripadvisor reviews called Motel Hell – Strange Reviews of Haunted Hotels back in 2018! Here is a review from that book…. Sylvia Hotel, Vancouver The Sylvia Hotel in Vancouver was built in 1911 and is designated a heritage building. It looks like the sort of place that may be haunted and it does have that reputation. Despite that, I could only find one review in which something paranormal might have occurred there. My

The Blackness in my Mirror

29 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The other night, I found myself suddenly wide awake at just after 3 am. I awoke with a jump and figured I had had a bad dream. After calming myself I rolled over and closed my eyes to go to sleep again. But as I did so, I caught sight of a reflection in my wardrobe mirror of a darkened figure. I shot bolt upright. There in the mirror was a dark figure, so dark that black isn’t a good enough description. At first, it was formless, just a blackness. Then it began to take shape. I sat bolt upright watching this with increasing horror before suddenly realizing that – it was only a reflection. I mean, there was nothing there in the room – just the reflection of whatever

The Tea Party

23 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I spotted this on Reddit and thought I would repost it here as it is a very nice short story… My father was on hospice when I became pregnant. He said he prayed to still be here when I had the baby and he was. He passed away 2 months later. Fast forward 3 years and my daughter was playing in her bedroom having a tea party. She was talking so I asked who she was talking to. She responded, ” I’m talking to my granddaddy and he says he loves you little monkey”. I froze because little monkey was his nickname for me from my childhood. I felt comforted that my dad was watching over my daughter Posted on Reddit by u/Certain-Possession46

Beware of Strangers

19 April 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

One afternoon in 2003, my 8 years old daughter was playing with her dolls out on our front porch when suddenly a young girl around the age of 15 years old was standing in front of her. My daughter looked up asked her what she wanted and the girl replied, “I want you to come with me to a place where it is much more fun than here.” Then my daughter Denielle realized she was a stranger and had no way of getting to our front porch because she would need to go through the front gate which is always locked for security reasons. Then she looked at the girl’s feet and saw that she was floating about 6 inches from the ground. Scared, she said no and stood up

Who Was The Old Man in my Bedroom?

22 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

The strangest thing that happened to me was when I was growing up in Tennessee. My mother was ill and out of work and we lived in a very old house near Knoxville. We all slept in the same bedroom, my mother, my younger sister, and I. This arrangement was done in order to close off the other rooms for better heating. My story takes place late one night. We had gone to bed early and I had been sleeping soundly until I suddenly woke up for no reason, and had a feeling that someone was watching me. I turned over to look toward my mother, who was asleep in the bed with my younger sister. I then noticed something that really terrified me. Sitting in an old chair, between

The Scratching Box

10 March 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Back in 1963, I took a trip to Weatherford, Texas, out in the country to spend some time at my Aunt Jay (Julia) and Uncle Guy’s house – the Rock House we called it because it was made entirely out of multicolored stone. Uncle Guy built it himself as a wedding gift to his bride, Jay. Soon after, a son Joe was born, then a girl, Ann. When the kids grew up, The son Joe married a girl with the same name as his sister – Ann, when she was only 17yrs old. I was 14 and attended the wedding. On this particular trip, I was 18 yrs old and Joe’s Anne, 21. She was staying at the Rock House visiting her in-laws while Joe was out of town. We

The Shadow

24 February 2021 | Haunted houses, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

I have just moved into a new house and not all the furniture was in so I was sleeping on the floor. I couldn’t sleep because you know those weird feelings you get when you move into a house?  I looked at the bathroom and all I saw was a tall black figure! I was freaked out so bad I almost had a heart attack, but no one else saw it, so I was like what was that? It was really scary but that’s all I can really remember.   Submitted to Weird Darkness and My Haunted Life Too by Elizabeth Quick
