Creepy Places You Can Actually Rent on Air BNB

As inexpensive, wacky, out of the way, rental properties become more of a desire for vacationers, Airbnb has had to really dig deep to find livable places to rent out to travelers. And that means renting out homes that might come with something extra, like a ghost roaming the halls or a fully functioning 13th century dungeon. There’s no end when it comes to scary places to Air BNB, but the spots collected on this list are some of the spookiest places you'd ever want to spend the night. Whether the homes once played host to secret societies, or they’re just literally made of bones, these are the creepiest places that you can actually rent on Air BNB.

Many travelers have spent money on scary Air BNB rentals, but the places on this list are downright strange. Some of the rental properties carry the sins of a war in their walls, while one particular room might be at the house of a Floridian cult (it’s hard to tell when it comes to Florida). Each of these weird Air BNB houses have something that’s a little bit off about them, and if you’re thinking of renting any of them you should plan on bringing a nightlight and letting your close friends know where you are, just in case. Start requesting days off from work so you can visit these creepy places available for rent on Air BNB.

If you can survive each spooky Airbnb tale, leave a comment about the scariest place you’ve ever stayed the night.

    Allegedly, the Parks-Bowman Mansion is one of the most haunted places in New Orleans, which is already super haunted, so if you stay here there's a good chance that you're going to have to deal with some spooky sounds. Supposedly the ghost of a young girl from the late-19th century lives in the bedroom. Sleep tight!


  • La Canada Estate: Flintridge, CA

    Built in 1929, this estate boasts right in the listing that it's haunted, so you know it's legit. Allegedly the house was built by a different set of day laborers every day so no one would know "the secrets" that this house holds. Groovy.

  • Haunted Chamber Apartment: York, England

    Any place that's over 600 years old and describes itself as a "madness chamber" is definitely haunted. Only stay in this place if you're trying to summon a ghoul from an amulet.

    The description of this castle says it was built in the 1800s as a "gentleman's folly" which is either code for "secret murder lair," aka ghost central, or a Duke was just building castles to mess with people - which is equally as creepy if you really think about it.
