What locations do they stay in?

The show was filmed across three different locations, known as the most haunted places in America. The places the teams visited were: Lumber Baron Inn in Denver, Madison Dry Goods in North Carolina, and Captain Grant’s Inn in Connecticut.

The Lumber Baron Inn and Gardens, a bed and breakfast and wedding venue, is a historic Victorian mansion. It’s believed to be haunted as it was reportedly where two teenage girls were murdered in 1970, and the case is unsolved. Madison Dry Goods is a store, that used to be a funeral home and hotel. When it was a funeral home, it reportedly homed the victims of one of the most notorious murders in the area – the Lawson family killings. Finally, Captain Grant’s Inn is also a bed and breakfast, which is a well-known ghost hunter hotspot. Many spirits are said to still be there, including the wife of one of the previous owners.
