Depending on who you ask, a 3 1/2 to 4-hour road trip isn't too far to drive.

Especially when you have the chance to actually spend the night in a place that might be one of the most haunted buildings in Illinois.

Ashmore Estates in Ashmore, roughly 240 miles from Rockford, is taking reservations to spend the night in their spooky joint.

Both Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures filmed episodes at Ashmore Estates so you know it's a popular spot for the paranormal. is now accepting overnight bookings for the end of June and October (one night on Halloween). Your stay at the Ashmore includes:

  • group seances
  • private time to explore
  • ghost hunting with special equipment
  • unlimited refreshments

They had me at "unlimited refreshments" but honestly, how often do you hear about haunted houses that let you sleepover?

Have you ever stayed the night at one of these places? Is it worth the drive and/or the money ($129 per night)? Tell us!
