Ghostly inns, hotels, and other eerie places – Ontario has them all!
Just when you thought it was safe to turn off the lights, ghost hunter Terry Boyle returns with a revised version of his bestselling Haunted Ontario. Join Terry as he conjures up a treasury of spectral delights that include apparitions at the former Swastika Hotel in Muskoka, the woman in the window at Inn at the Falls in Bracebridge, and poltergeists galore in Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum.
Venture – if you dare – on a ghost hunt to inns, hotels, and museums. Travel with your mind, and perhaps your body, too, to restaurants and private homes. Experience rattling doorknobs, slamming doors, faces in mirrors, and flickering lights. Read accounts from former skeptics and feel their nervous tension as they relate experiences of shadowy visitors, ghostly voices, and household objects that mysteriously disappear. Watch a television show when the set is unplugged and hear tales of vanishing sailors – boats and all.
With a list of addresses, phone numbers, and websites to each location, Terry Boyle invites all ghost enthusiasts along for the adventure. Feeling brave? You might just want to stop and visit some ghosts on your next trip.
This second edition of Haunted Ontario invites the reader along through history. You might want to keep your lights on at night after this read.
