  • Great Place

    I have been there numerous times and love the building. It is rare to go there and not have some type of experience. Some of the most amazing paranormal experiences I have had have been in this building and I have been all over the country to haunted locations.

  • Nothing good about that place

    You people really ruined a great place for people who really needed a place to where they could stay and get help. I use to live there and it's never been that messed up on the inside so everyone who had to stay there knows that you all should never have bought the place so now people who really needs a place to stay and get help can't get it anymore so ty NOT!!!!!! and I'll never stay at that place ever again oh and by the way it's not haunted and you probably bought the farm across the rd cause there wasn't a grave there when we all lived there and people who stay there are so very stupid.

  • Never Disappoints

    Always something happening when we go here. Soon after arriving or early AM before packing up, are times the place seems to come alive.

  • Chilling overnight in july 2019

    I visited with 6 or 7 other people. We get there and the very nice lady who owns Edinburgh Manor gave us a tour that lasted about an hour and a half. She told us no food, drinks, seances, or weapons and gave us the keys and said see you in the morning. We had several different experiences that night night ranging from random colder spots to heavy feelings in some of the rooms to noises far down the corridors where no one was. I defiantly reccomend this place to anyone who is in to these kinds of things!

    In one room I could feel a cold cols spot only on my elbow. Some rooms there was a very heavy feeling that came over us.
