Keep reading to find out what makes our inn a hauntingly unique part of Concord history.

Room 24

Many guests make reservations for the notoriously haunted hotel room 24 on the second floor. Room 24 was used as an operations room for wounded soldiers back in the 1770s. During the Revolutionary War era, the hotel was actually a home owned by a doctor. Caretakers operated on injured soldiers in room 24 where many did not survive and passed in that very room. There was also a morgue located in room 27 on the first floor where many curious guests dare to spend the night. While you may not find many ghosts of the soldiers, you may discover apparitions of the caretakers still roaming the halls.  

Particular Experiences

Visiting the historically haunted hotel during the Halloween season will be a thrilling experience for ghost enthusiasts. Staff and guests have both reported flickering lights, waking up with the lights and tv on, noticed floating orbs, and have heard haunting voices. Many report seeing an older woman roaming the halls that some believe to be a middle-aged nurse named Rosemary. You may find yourself walking a little quicker in some regions of the hotel, and with so much Concord history between the walls, we don’t blame you!
