Special Presentation in a very Haunted Location!

For all of you who have asked where you can go to experience a real haunted house, here's a unique opportunity. On Friday, April 27th at 7pm, I will be giving a lecture (with photos) on some of my best cases at the very haunted Shanley's Hotel in Napanoch, New York. My ghost hunting partner, Mike, will also be making a special presentation on "Ghost Hunting Tech and Techniques" to introduce everyone to all the gear and gadgets, and how to conduct an effective investigation.

Shanley's Hotel has a long colorful history as a popular spot for tourists since the mid-1800s. It also served as a bootlegger's hideout during prohibition, and a brothel during the 20th century. It has been the scene of murders, accidental deaths, and enough tragedies to provide very fertile grounds for ghosts. Current owners, Sal and Cindy, have been transforming the dilapidated structure into a beautiful bed and breakfast, scheduled to open this fall.

Mike and I conducted an investigation of the old hotel last year, and it was one of the most intense experiences we've ever had. There are so many different personalities there, many of which really affected us personally. There are bedrooms that make you feel completely disoriented, a hidden room in the basement that gives you a terrible sense of panic, and I swear in the brothel it's like another dimension, where the floor seems to shift right under your feet. Many figures have been witnessed, as well as footsteps, voices...I could go on and on. Suffice to say, this is one the most haunted places I have ever been.

So, if you want to learn how to conduct a ghost hunt and hear about some fascinating and frightening investigations of haunted places in the Hudson Valley--while having some delightful refreshments--all in a very, very haunted old hotel, then please consider attending the special presentation on April 27th. Seating will be limited and reservations are required. Admission is $20. For more information and to make a reservation, please contact Barbara Bleitzhofer at 845-647-2787, or email

Barbara has been working on the restoration with Sal and Cindy, and she has had many paranormal experiences at Shanley's. She has also been conducting research on the history of the place, and will be available that night with a display of photos and newspaper clippings that shed light on the lives of the spirits that now walk the halls of the old hotel.

Don't miss this unique opportunity! It promises to be a night you won't soon forget...
