Haunted Inns of the Southeast



Whether you like sleeping among spirits or simply enjoy reading a good ghost story, Haunted Inns of the Southeast is your guide to ninety mysterious places across nine states. At the Don Cesar Resort in St. Petersburg, Florida, you might witness a man dressed like Panama Jack chatting with workers. He is Thomas Rowe, the resort’s founder, who died more than sixty years ago. At the Andrew Jackson Hotel in New Orleans–America’s most openly haunted city–the courtyard is turned into a playground by orphans who perished in a fire many years past. At the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, author Sheila Turnage checks into room 545 and tries to solve the mystery of the Pink Lady. In Union, South Carolina, guests at the Merridun may be joined in bed by the ghost of a little white dog. You’ll be both chilled and amused by these stories, some of which are related here for the first time by the inns’ owners and employees. You’ll also appreciate the hard information–addresses, phone numbers, price ranges–in case you’d like to pay a visit.

Sheila Turnage’s Three Times Lucky, the first in the YA Mo and Dale Mystery series was a Newbery Honor winner, New York Times bestseller, Edgar Award Finalist, and E.B. White Read-Aloud Honor book. Her writing has appeared in Southern Living, Early American Homes, American Legacy, International Poetry Review, and many other publications. She lives on a farm in eastern North Carolina.
