This week’s home tour is a my special Halloween gift to y’all — a haunted house in a de-commissioned B&B in Seattle. How haunted is it? Here’s a quote from its Airbnb listing:

Yes there have been supernatural events that have happened in this house.

1. You will hear footsteps walking upstairs over the living room almost every night when there is no one else in the house.

2. Clocks and pictures have leaped off walls.

3. The kitchen has had the items on the counters jump around as if they have a life of their own.

The mischief is harmless and nonthreatening, those of you who don’t like things that go bump in the night may want to stay somewhere else.

Wanna see more of the inside? It’s all decked out the way you’d hope a haunted house would be — antique child’s coffin coffee table, antique Halloween goods, metaphysical library, “haunted” ventriloquist dolls, and even snakes abound in this house.

The Grim the Reaper will welcome you when you arrive. There’s an awesome fireplace, antique lamps, sculptures, and statues.
The living room has a large black sectional, and a child’s size antique coffin as a coffee table!
Ooh, and what’s around the corner? A moody bar set up.
The bar features alcohol, of course, but also tarantula tanks and a small library of books on ghosts, spirits, and demons.
On the other side of the living room is the dining room.
The dining table holds Medusa bust sculptures, and antique candle holders. The nearby display case contains human skulls, an antique crystal ball, statues and candles as old as 1925.
This kitchen does my head in! They describe it as a witch’s kitchen, complete with ceramic antiques from many Halloweens past.
Found next to the Bar, the downstairs bathroom is decorated with framed vintage horror movie posters and this AWESOME extra large skull wall mural!
The stairway separating the two levels has this fantastic display of haunted antique ventriloquist dolls, their metaphysical library, antique magician posters, and other old prints.
The master bedroom is filled with Halloween antiques dating back to the mid-1800s.
This is also where their Mexican Black King Snake, Diablo, lives.
The guest bedroom is decorated with a wrought iron lamp from the 1800s, framed antique prints of nude witches on brooms, and a giant antique mirror bought from a haunted estate. If you’re wondering, Vincent the house cat is modeling the bedding from Sin-N-Linen.
I love the idea of using an empty birdcage to house a fake bat.
The guest bathroom has wall murals of skulls, witches, and bats covering every wall.

For more photos you can check out the listing on Airbnb. In the meantime, let’s talk about haunted houses. Ever had the feeling that you live in one, or maybe you’ve spent the night in one? Or do you know of famous ones in your neighborhood?

Comments on Haunted horror-themed house in Seattle

  1. We definitely lived in a haunted house for a year. Once we all sat down and had a bit of a “family meeting” we stopped having problems, though. We just had to explain that we didn’t have anything against it, and it didn’t need to have anything against us. After that, the tension in the house eased. I worry about him sometimes. The house was slated to be demolished and replaced. I hope he’s alright.

  2. I’ve lived in a haunted brand new apartment (we were the second tenants in the entire building) and a haunted very old house. Both were interesting but at times unpleasant. I’ve done paranormal investigations and am interested in all kinds of unexplained phenomena, but I have no further desire to live in a haunted place. Visit, sure. Even sleep. But not live.

  3. I love that bat in a cage! This place is simply cool for how far they’ve gone with their aesthetic. It’s stunningly beautiful – I don’t think I’d be able to live with that darker style year round, but it does have me wondering what other kinds of things would look cool in a cage – fake squid? mini doll family having tea? colourful butterflies?

  4. This is what I want my house to be (less stuff, general feel of ‘spooky goth/haunted house’ without being formal Victorian, which is seems to be the default when Halloween is your lifestyle, not just a holiday).

    I love the ventrioquist dolls! So fun and creepy at the same time. I wish we could keep our snake in the bedroom, but her light stays on at night and that would make it impossible to sleep.

  5. Oh man oh man I have so many thoughts about this place
    The first thought is “Holy hell who DUSTS all of that stuff??!?”
    The second thought is scheming how I would fit the ventriloquist dummies and the snake in my suitcase before I leave
    Because spooky dolls are SO TOTALLY MY THING gosh i should have stuck a photo of my Living Dead Dolls in the flickr group for Halloween whoops
