The Thomas House Hotel in Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee has a reputation for being one of the most haunted places in the state. Its dark history and eerie atmosphere have drawn many paranormal enthusiasts and thrill-seekers over the years. One popular way to experience the hotel’s haunted past is through the Ghost Hunt Weekends, which offers ghost hunts and overnight stays in the hotel.
I recently had the opportunity to visit the Thomas House Hotel during one of these ghost hunt weekends. As soon as I arrived, I could feel the energy of the place. The hotel’s exterior is an old, brick building with two huge porches. As I stepped inside, the creaky wooden floors and antique decor confirmed that I was in for an interesting night.
The hotel has a long history of being a hotspot for paranormal activity, with reports of everything from apparitions and strange noises to full-body apparitions and disembodied voices. It’s said that the hotel was once home to a Cult, which just that alone gives the hotel an unsettling vibe. Additionally, there have been reports of deaths and murders on the premises, adding to the hotel’s eerie reputation.
After check-in, we were given a brief orientation, we headed to our room for some early ghost hunting, so I broke out my equipment and set out to explore the hotel. My ghost-hunting equipment included EMF meters, temperature guns, and digital voice recorders. The team from Ghost Hunt Weekends gave us some tips on how to use the equipment and where to look for paranormal activity.
As we wandered through the hotel’s dark and mysterious hallways, we tried to communicate with any spirits that might be lingering. We visited several of the most haunted rooms, including Room 37, where a spirit of a child named Sarah is supposed to reside, and Room 42, where a former hotel guest claims to have been physically attacked by a ghostly entity. We also spent some time in the hotel’s Seance Room, where we tried to make contact with any spirits that might be lurking.
There was a wonderful buffet dinner served for the guests and then a presentation by Ghost Hunt Weekends Owner and Paranormal Author Chad Morin. While we enjoyed our dinner we watched Chad Morin’s Documentary on the History and Hauntings of the Thomas House Hotel which was full of fantastic and scary evidence collected of the years at the Thomas House.
Throughout the night, we experienced several strange occurrences. We heard unexplained footsteps and knocking sounds, and our EMF meters spiked in certain areas of the hotel. One member of our group even claimed to have seen a shadowy figure moving across the hallway.
Despite all of the eerie experiences, we never felt unsafe or threatened. The Ghost Hunt Weekends team made sure that we were well-informed about the hotel’s history and what to expect during the night. They were also available to answer any questions and offer guidance throughout the evening.
Overall, my visit to the Thomas House Hotel with Ghost Hunt Weekends was an unforgettable experience. Whether or not you believe in ghosts, the hotel’s history and atmosphere are sure to send a chill down your spine. If you’re looking for a unique and spooky adventure, I highly recommend checking out the Thomas House Hotel and experiencing it for yourself. Just be prepared for some bumps in the night.
