Is the Burn Brae Mansion in Glen Spey Haunted?

Here's the spooky story of one editor's stay at the century-old, reputedly haunted Burn Brae Mansion in Glen Spey.

burn brae

It was a dark and stormy night last July when I visited Burn Brae Mansion in Glen Spey—seriously, that evening was one of the worst thunderstorms of the summer. But I considered myself lucky—after all, I came here to be scared, and I assumed that the severe rain and strong winds would only amplify things (and otherworldly beings) that go bump in the night.

When our edit staff heard about a haunted bed and breakfast in the region, we knew we had to check it out. Call me crazy, but I volunteered, even before knowing why the house was a hotspot for paranormal activity. I love Halloween and horror stories—but I’ve always been skeptical about the existence of ghosts. I hoped that an overnight at Burn Brae would show me the (eerie) light.

The manse was built in 1907 by Charles Elkin and Margaret Ross Mackenzie Elkin, daughter of George Ross Mackenzie, who was the third president of the Singer Sewing Machine Company. Over the decades, the property has been a private estate, a boarding house, a tearoom during prohibition, and for the last 13 years, a bed and breakfast.

Mike and Pat Fraysse, who purchased Burn Brae in 1993, were initially drawn to the home for its large size and proximity to the T-Town velodrome cycling track in Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. Mike, a prominent cycling coach and former president of the U.S. Cycling Federation, needed a place for his coaches and trainees to stay. Peaceful Glen Spey, with its winding roads and hills, was also an ideal place to train away from the official track. At the time, the home was subdivided into apartments with a few renters that kept their leases under the new ownership. To the Fraysse’s surprise, there were also a few more, well, permanent tenants.

As Mike recalls, they didn’t start to suspect that the house was haunted until most of the renters left. With fewer people living there, it was harder to explain the sounds of footsteps and children’s voices. “We’d have people stay over and say that they couldn’t sleep with the baby crying all night. Well, there weren’t any babies here,” he said.

While there’s no record of any murders or violent activity at Burn Brae, several members of the Elkin family are buried in nearby Glen Spey cemetery. Charles and Margaret Elkin’s four-year-old daughter Elsey passed away in 1893 before the house was built, and grandchild Levi died at birth in 1940. More recently, the Hapijs—an elderly couple who were among the renters allowed to stay when the Fraysses’ bought Burn Brae—died in their apartment in 2005 and 2006.

The owners, curious about the strange sounds themselves, called ghostbusters—aka South Jersey Ghost Research. After a three-day investigation using motion and heat sensors, cameras, voice recorders, and even a team member with alleged psychic abilities, the group recorded more than 180 photos and sounds of ghosts and confirmed that Burn Brae is, indeed, haunted.

While the news may have been unsettling to most homeowners, the Fraysse’s embraced it. In fact, their son-in-law Andy had been hosting murder mystery dinners at Burn Brae since before it was certified scary. The couple, who began running the property solely as a B&B in 2010, also began hosting annual haunted walks in the woods behind the house, complete with Halloween props. While the beauty of the area and 20-plus acres surrounding the home are both popular draws, most guests come for the possibility of meeting poltergeists. The proprietors also frequently welcome paranormal investigative groups, including crews from the TV shows “Ghost Adventures” and “Ghost Nation.”

Screening for Women With Dense Breasts

Burn Brae is in rural Sullivan County. Getting there from my home in Kingston involved screenshotting Waze directions (for when the cell service cut out) and navigating a windy drive along the Hawk’s Nest above the Delaware River.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by Pat, who led me through a grand dining room and parlor decorated with antique furniture, sports memorabilia, and a lot of dolls. Then we went upstairs to my room: a small suite with a queen bed and bathroom. During the calm before the evening storm, the mansion looked light and airy—the lace curtains flowing in the breeze gave the interior an almost dreamy quality.


Although it’s officially a bed and breakfast, Mike and Pat also provide dinner for guests. We were joined by their daughter and son-in-law Susan and Andy Russ, who helped fill me in on the mansion’s history of hauntings. They told me about the time that guests looking at the house from the front yard claimed they could see a couple playing chess through the upstairs window. They also talked about a group of girls who were brought to Burn Brae to film the show “Psychic Kids,” who told Pat during dinner that they were looking forward to the cookies they smelled in the house earlier. Pat hadn’t made any cookies, but Mrs. Hapij used to bake all the time…

Other unexplained occurrences include doors opening and slamming shut, children’s voices and balls bouncing in the attic, animal sounds, and apparitions of a woman dressed in white and a man in turn-of-the-century dress.

Andy said he’s had encounters with a spirit named Ellie (who Susan believes is Elsey Elkin). One time, when a group of ghost-hunters who stayed at Burn Brae were using dowsing rods to contact suspected spirits, Andy joined. Dowsing rods are held in each hand and can be used to ask yes or no questions in a similar fashion to a Ouija board—they’ll move left for yes, right for no. Although the rods signaled strongly after each question, Andy wasn’t convinced. So he asked Ellie to move an attic toy if she was indeed communicating with them. A trip upstairs was all the evidence he needed—a single Smurf figurine was separated from the group and sitting across the room.

I could sense the hundreds of sets of doll and toy figurines eyes following my every move.

I tried to prepare myself for all these possibilities. After a dinner of pork française, Susan and Andy took me to the “attic of curiosities.” On the way up, we stopped for a look into a closet jam-packed with dolls (which was much scarier than any attic, in my opinion). Burn Brae has dolls scattered throughout the rooms to amp up the eeriness, but this closet was beyond creepy. Some were new, several were cracked, and many were missing body parts. While the Fraysses have purchased dolls over the years, a lot of them are gifts from guests who are happy to add to the collection.

By 9:30 p.m., I was left alone in the great room downstairs. The Fraysses had retired to their apartment on the south end of the house, and Susan and Andy returned to the horse stables-turned-motel on the property, where they were staying. I had the privilege (if you could consider it that) of being the only guest at the inn and was given free rein to explore. But before I got started, a loud crack of thunder and a bright lightning strike shook me and the house. If a storm could put me on edge, I knew I had a long night ahead of me. I don’t know what I was more worried about—seeing or hearing a ghost, or not experiencing anything supernatural at all.

Earlier, Andy showed me the “ghost-hunting” equipment that they keep onsite—an electromagnetic field reader, a surface temperature gauge (to look for cool spots, an alleged indicator of ghosts), and dowsing rods. All guests are welcome to use the tools, so I took the gear upstairs with me.

First, I spent some time sitting in each of the six bedrooms, waiting for something to happen and scanning entries from the guest logs on the night tables. I read that a week before my visit, a couple who stayed in the Hapij’s old bedroom (now called the Mackenzie Suite) reported hearing a chair scratch along the wood floor. “We were not sure if our imagination got the best of us, but then, the chair moved toward the bed. We both saw it,” wrote a couple that was “too scared to leave names” in the book.

Other notes detailed more common occurrences, like a cat mewling, children giggling, and footsteps up and down the hallways in the middle of the night. One review from 2007 haunted me: “I experienced the most sense of fear while just lying there, almost like I was being watched,” said a former guest who stayed in the room across the hall from mine.

I steeled myself to investigate the attic once more. The room looks like an overstuffed antiques store, packed to the rafters with toys, knick-knacks, and even movie props. While perusing the shelves, I felt like I had company, which I chalked up to two possibilities: one, there was a presence in the attic, or two, I could sense the hundreds of sets of doll and toy figurine eyes following my every move.


I eventually made my way back to my room—by now, it was after 11 p.m. and the storm was gaining strength. After several deafening cracks of thunder, the power went out. I was so grateful to be back in my room—if I had been in the attic, I am sure I would have screamed. I quickly closed and locked my bedroom door. (I realize that a locked door wouldn’t deter a spirit, but it made me feel better.) The wind started whipping, and then I heard three doors down the hall from me slamming shut in quick succession, followed by more thunder. I was startled, but then I remembered that the windows in most of the bedrooms had been left open since the daytime, so I wasn’t surprised. I got into bed and hoped I would fall asleep fast.

Mike and Pat Fraysse

When I woke up around 7 a.m., I was honestly a bit disappointed that I hadn’t seen or heard any apparitions. But when I left my room, I noticed that every door in my hallway—the ones I heard slam shut the night before—was wide open. Someone opened those doors—but it wasn’t the Fraysses, who were still asleep on the other side of the house, and it wasn’t me…

Breakfast was served promptly at 9 a.m., and despite the power outage, Mike was able to whip up great pancakes on the gas stove. I soon said my goodbyes and was on my way back to my own ghost-free home. I chalked up my experience with the doors as more than enough to mark the stay as a success.

Haunted places in Upstate NY: 87 spooky sites to visit (if you dare)

  • Updated: Jan. 22, 2021, 4:38 p.m. |

Upstate New York  is such a fun place to visit, that some people don't want to leave -- even after death.

Haunted houses, cemeteries, and other sites of paranormal activity have turned the region into a hotbed for ghost hunters and fans of spooky stories, even more so than the "Amityville Horror" House downstate. Many historical sites offer guided tours, especially in the summer and around Halloween, but a few places (that we'll leave out) are on private land and closed to the public.

Note: This is not a bunch of hayrides with fake graves and people in creepy clown costumes jumping out to make you scream.

If you want real scares that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, then grab a flashlight and enjoy our list of truly haunted places in Upstate NY.

Barkeater Chocolates (North Creek)

The Haunted History Trail of New York State says the Barkeater Chocolates building, circa 1880, is a hotbed for unexplained sounds including footsteps and voices. Employees have even named a ghost Miranda, claiming she likes the room hot and would turn the thermostat up to 85 degrees until they taped the thermostat dial to keep it from moving. Guided tours are available by special appointment or at fall events.

Big Moose Lake (Adirondacks)

The story goes Grace Brown was murdered while staying at a cabin with Chester Gillette, who drowned her in the lake. Witnesses say they've seen her spirit re-enacting the "American Tragedy" or seen her face in the water, or felt wet chills.

A plaque was put up in 2006 to mark the centennial of the murder of Grace Brown by Chester Gillette at Big Moose Lake.

Brightside Hotel (Raquette Lake)

Only accessible by boat from the Town of Raquette Lake through Duck Bay to Indian Point, this secluded hotel is "very busy" with paranormal activity, according to the Mohawk Valley Ghost Hunters. Reports range from beds shaking and visions of bluish orbs to a female apparition waiting in her bedroom for her husband, who disappeared on the ice in the 1970s. The Brightside has even designated a "Ghost Room" and tells tales of the original owner, J.O.A. Bryere, who allegedly buried some bodies under the basement while he also worked as the county coroner in the 1800s.

Fort Ticonderoga (Ticonderaga)

Ghosts have been reported at the former site of many battles in the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. One  legend  says General "Mad" Anthony Wayne's mistress Nancy Coates drowned herself in Lake Champlain when he left her for another woman, and her apparition can be seen running after Wayne or floating on the water. Others say they've heard sobbing or seen artifacts in locked cases moved around. Throughout the months of Sept. and Oct., the site offers several corn maze events (including night tours by moonlight for extra fun).

Fort William Henry Museum (Lake George)

Ghost  tours  are offered at Fort William Henry from May through October, telling stories of victims of the French and Indian War that were investigated by "Ghost Hunters." Spirits even have charming nicknames, like Limper (who creeps with uneven footsteps) and the Slammer (who slams doors, of course).

Hotel Saranac (Saranac Lake)

"Hey": The Press Republican reports the Adirondack Park Paranormal Society recorded several EVPs (electronic voice phenomenons) during a 2015 investigation at the 1920s hotel. Other unexplained phenomena include doors closing unexpectedly, voices singing, a male specter in a top hat, and heavy feelings or energies. Feel free to stay for a night and join them.

Long Island Campgrounds (Bolton Landing)

At the south end of Lake George  is a ghostly bride, some say, looking for her husband after they were murdered while sleeping on their honeymoon in the 1960s.

Sagamore Hotel (Bolton Landing)

Haunted America Tours once named this historic resort one of the top 10 most haunted hotels in the U.S. Built in 1883 and now listed in the National Register of Historic Places, several ghosts have been reported -- the most spooky of which is a little boy who used to sell golf balls to the pro shop until he was hit by a car. Golfers say they've seen him chasing or even taking their golf balls, flinging them from behind a tree and laughing.

The Sagamore Resort on Lake George in Upstate New York is a century-old hotel in the Adirondacks.

Skene Manor (Whitehall)

Another haunted place near Lake George? Must be something in the water. The 1870s-built home, originally known as "Mountain Terrace," is supposedly haunted by the wife of one-time owner Philip Skene. Her spirit has been claimed to be seen near a fountain that was once where her body was buried.

The Anvil Inn (Fort Edward)

Built in the 1840s as a blacksmith shop, the popular dining spot provides unexpected entertainment when a female spectre allegedly turns lights and music on or off, or drops bottles on the floor.


Batcheller Mansion Inn (Saratoga Springs)

Civil War veteran George S. Batcheller built the mansion in 1883. Visitors to the converted inn, including The Albany Paranormal Research Society (APRS), have long reported seeing ghosts and other paranormal activity. Curious? You can rent a room and stay overnight to conduct your own investigation.

Canfield Casino in Congress Park (Saratoga Springs)

Saratoga's resort hotel and popular wedding venue has long seen reports of mysterious figures in wedding photos, hostile energy, objects moving or cold spots. SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" investigated the former Congress Spring Bottling Plant and Congress Hall (which now holds the  Saratoga Springs  History Museum), experiencing hair pulling, touching and an electromagnetic field on the third floor; others claimed they were slapped by a female specter in a Victorian dress or smelled cigar smoke that isn't there.

Forest Park Cemetery (Brunswick)

USA Today  recommends this abandoned 1800s cemetery, also known as Pinewoods, located outside of Troy and closed to the public -- though the gates and fencing have been removed. Shattered gravestones and a vandalized mausoleum may disturb you, but just think how disturbed the former residents must feel. Many report feeling cold spots or something that doesn't allow them to leave, as well as lighter phenomena like the sounds of children's laughter.

Loudon Cottage (Loudonville)

Supposedly you can see the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in this summer home owned by Clara Harris , the woman who sat next to the president when he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. Some of his blood stained her white satin dress and she kept it in the closet, only to one day see his spirit in a rocking chair, staring at it. The closet was bricked up, but reports later indicated sounds of gunshots and sightings of a young, blood-soaked woman with Lincoln. The cottage is not currently open to the public, but tours have been offered in the past.

NYS Capitol Building (Albany)

The Hauntings Tour takes visitors through the Capitol Building in October, telling  tales  of ghosts like a man who jumped to his death from the fifth floor in 1890, and Samuel Abbott, a nightwatchman who died in a 1911 fire (that mysteriously didn't burn any sacred Iroquois artifacts in the building).

The Knox Mansion (Johnstown)

The  Haunted History Trail  recommends this 42-room house built in 1889 by Charles Knox. Ghost tours and guided visits are offered, with experiences like flickering lights, mysterious footsteps, cold spots, spooky voices and visions of ghosts, like a late gardener who apparently only appears to children.

Vale Cemetery (Schenectady)

According to hauntedplaces.org , this 150-year-old cemetery allegedly has statutes that bleed from their eyes, ghostly figures that wander gravesites, and sounds of singing in an old church on the grounds. Themed public tours are offered on the first Sunday of the month from May through October, taking the morbidly curious through the victims of the Revolutionary War, the "Victorian Lady in Mourning" and others.

Yates Elementary (Schenectady)

Students at this K-6 magnet school have reported seeing children enter a locked door with a hidden staircase to a classroom for disabled students, according to  The Free George . Others have claimed to see ghosts in the bathroom or heard children's laughter when there are no kids on the grounds.

Burn Brae Mansion (Glen Spey)

"Burn Brae Mansion is one of my favorite places to stay when I am up here," "The Exorcist" actress Linda Blair once said. A mansion in the Catskills has reportedly been haunted by a variety of mysterious sights and sounds, sparking several paranormal investigations. You can stay overnight, book your own investigation or attend special events for fans of the supernatural.

Captain's Inn Point Lookout (East Windham)

The inn, previously known as Point Lookout Inn, was once the site of a murder. It's believed that  a couple checked into Room 12, but the woman never left because she was killed by the man she arrived with. Room 12's tainted past has resulted in patrons of the room reporting strange happenings such as foul odors, voices and flickering lights.

Murderers' Creek (Athens)

The creek, 1.5 miles from Hudson-Athens Lighthouse, is supposedly haunted by the spirit of Sally Hamilton, a young girl whose body was found mutilated and suffering from a broken skull under a bridge in the creek. Hamilton was the daughter of a prominent businessman and went missing prior to the discovery of her body. Boat rentals are available for haunted rides through Murderers' Creek.

The Shanley Hotel (Napanoch)

The Shanley Hotel, purchased in 1906 by James Louis Shanley, has been the site of many tragedies , including the death of all three of his children before the age of 1. His sister-in-law Esther died at the hotel, also, after becoming sick with influenza. Other rumors that plague the hotel involve accidental deaths and even murder. The hotel is said to have rocking chairs that rock on their own, mysterious clock chimes, voices, the laughter of children and more. The hotel has 35 rooms that can be booked for stay.


Beardslee Castle (Little Falls)

A stone's throw from the Thruway (Route 90) is John Beardslee's home, built in the early 1800s, now a popular wedding destination -- especially for fans of the supernatural . Stories of hauntings from victims of the French and Indian War have persisted for decades, but other legends include ghosts of a woman named "Abigail" who died the night before her wedding, and Pop Christensen, the first owner of the castle when it was turned into a restaurant, who allegedly hung himself in the building.

Brae Loch Inn (Cazenovia)

This popular Scottish-themed inn and restaurant was originally the home of William Burr. According to  hauntedplaces.org , several rooms are haunted by visions that include a man in a kilt (known as "Scotty"), a young girl in a blue dress carrying a tray of candles and a shadowy male figure.

Bull's Head Inn (Cobleskill)

Built in 1802, this inn didn't stir up any spirits until the '60s when a bar was added and disturbed the spirit of Mrs. John Stacy, an anti-alcohol advocate who's  said  to knock silverware, glasses and more off tables. Visitors and investigators have reported seeing an apparition in a long white dress, hearing doors slam shut or even communicating via flickering lights.

Casey's Cottage (Mexico)

Mysterious occurrences are frequently reported at Casey's Cottage, located on Lake Ontario at Mexico Point State Park. Visitors say they've seen candles flying off the fireplace mantel, lights flickering, chandeliers swaying and translucent figures -- possibly including the cottage's namesake, William Casey.

Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum (Chittenango)

Chittenango is best known as the home of "The Wizard of Oz" author L. Frank Baum, but the dry docks along the Erie Canal are allegedly haunted  by victims of thieves and murderers, searching for justice.

The Dry Dock at Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum in Chittenango, Thursday July 27, 2017. The Landing was basically like a thru-way stop where repairs could be made on the canal. Canal blacksmiths would make all the fittings, nails and hinges for construction and repair of a canal boat.

Dr. Best House & Medical Museum (Middleburgh)

This "time capsule" of early medicine may be plagued by victims of archaic hospital procedures that are no longer practiced, or by the doctor and his family who died within the walls of the house. EVPs and other unexplained events have made this a popular place for "Haunted History Tours" in October .

Fingerlakes Mall (Auburn)

This CNY shopping mall says ghost investigators have recorded more than 200 EVPs and video of entities since a late-night watchman allegedly ran out terrified after his first "encounter." You can book your own ghost hunt and see for yourself.

Erie Canal Museum (Syracuse)

Several ghosts allegedly haunt the Erie Canal Museum , including arguing men, a woman who was killed in the building and children in the courtyard. Shadow Chasers recorded pictures of orbs, lights turning on and off and spooky noises in a 2012 investigation.

Grapevine Farms (Cobleskill)

According to Haunted History Trail , this 19th century farmhouse is now a gift shop and venue for weddings and banquets, but four ghostly spirits still live there. Encounters include ghostly children running through the halls; investigations and tours can be booked.

Fort Ontario State Historic Site (Oswego)

This "Guardian of the Northern Frontier" was a fortress for U.S. military for centuries. Now it's a creepy/fun place to visit, featured on "Ghost Hunters" with phenomenon ranging from strange lights and music to a woman in an upstairs window or the sound of a child calling his cat. The fort hosts a ghost hunt in mid-October every year.

In this April 15, 2016 photo, a building at Fort Ontario State Historic Site in Oswego, N.Y., is shown. The 1755 British-built fort is part of New York's Haunted History Trail, which maps out places where there have been claims of paranormal activity and invites tourists to see for themselves.

Herkimer Home State Historic Site (Little Falls)

Revolutionary War General Nicholas Herkimer built this Georgian Mansion in the Mohawk Valley in 1764. Considered a hero for defending Fort Stanwix from British red coats, he was wounded in battle and died at his home days later. The home is supposedly haunted by ghostly voices  and footsteps and even a flying candlestick. Site tours are only offered during a few months of the year.

Hyde Hall (Cooperstown)

Did Juliette Gordon Low, Samuel F.B. Morse and Alice Lawless ever really leave his 19th century mansion? Stories of a curse and other not-kid-friendly hauntings are covered in summer and October "Hyde & Shriek!" ghost tours.

1890 House Museum (Cortland)

The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) investigators from Syfy's " Ghost Hunters " also investigated this home where six members of the industrialist Chester Wickwire's family died.

Onondaga County Criminal Courthouse (Syracuse)

A woman named Claire allegedly haunts the former site of the  Syracuse  Police Department parking garage after she jumped to her death in the 1950s when she discovered her cop boyfriend was cheating on her with another woman. Word is people sometimes see or hear her when working late at night on the top and bottom floors of the courthouse.

Otesaga Resort Hotel (Cooperstown)

According to  NBC , the more than a century old hotel near the National Baseball Hall of Fame was the private Knox School for Girls from 1920 to 1954. Stories of seeing ghostly children playing, giggling or even calling people's names out -- especially in rooms 307 and 585 -- led to an investigation from SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" who confirmed "friendly spirits" exist there. Like a female Casper.

Sylvan Beach Amusement Park (Sylvan Beach)

Eight people died in the 19th century Victorian mansion, and guests at the former inn say they've seen human and animal spirits, heard ghostly voices or seen objects moving on their own. In 2013,  WRVO  interviewed the owners of the privately owned house about their paranormal experiences while living there.

Allegiance Bed & Breakfast (Mount Morris)

In Livingston County, you can talk to the living dead by booking an overnight stay at this 19th century B&B that was once featured on the "Today" show. The mini-mansion is named after Mount Morris native Francis Bellamy, who wrote the Pledge of Allegiance, but the  Haunted History Trail  says ghosts named Karen and Ray apparently enjoy interacting with guests.

Belhurst Castle (Geneva)

Lots of ghost stories surround the Belhurst Castle, including an opera singer named Isabella who died when a secret tunnel collapsed and a former caretaker, Dick O'Brien, who still walks the stairs or sits in his favorite chair more than 45 years after his death. Staff and guests also report showers turning on and off, bottles and glasses flying, tablecloths tied to chandeliers, and sounds of children (especially among pregnant visitors).

Fainting Goat Island Inn (Nichols)

The Haunted History Trail says this former railroad hotel built in the late 1800s boasts a variety of unexplained experiences, including visions of two women having tea in the Fainting Room, footsteps heard on a staircase that no longer exists, and a little boy moving a chair and spilling gumballs.

As featured on Syfy's "Haunted Collector," this 18th century building is said to be home to a woman who was murdered in 1972 -- possibly by her brother, who took his own life a decade later on the spot where Table 24 now sits. Enjoy a meal in the Italian restaurant, have a drink in the cocktail lounge, or enjoy other events while hearing all the tales.

Spook Rock Road (Hudson)

"Try to Scare Me" says a popular nature spot near Claverack Creek is known as Spook Rock Road because people claim to hear low moaning sounds and sometimes even see a Native American princess looking for her forbidden lover.

Burrville Cider Mill (Watertown)

The Burrville Cider Mill offers freshly pressed sweet apple cider and fried cider donuts so good the previous owners don't want to leave.

The ghosts are said to make lights flicker, move around objects in the gift shop and even smoke cigars.

Thompson Park Vortex (Watertown)

Thompson Park allegedly contains a "vortex" to the past, where visitors are mysteriously transported to another portion of the park after a brief disappearance. Northern NY Shadow Chasers investigated the location in 2007, finding no evidence of a time warp -- but unusual EMF readings in a grid pattern could explain confusion and hallucinations. It's unclear what causes the EMF mystery, but the city recently celebrated its claim to fame with a sign in the park for "Watertown's Area 51."


Devil's Elbow (near Binghamton)

Devil's Elbow is a dangerous curved road on Route 17, approximately 15 miles east of Binghamton.

Several shipwrecks in Lake Erie, off the coast of Dunkirk, may be the explanation for paranormal activity at this historical site near Chautauqua. Guided investigations are offered , along with a lighthouse tour where amateur investigators can test their equipment.

Durand-Eastman Park (Rochester)

Legend has it the park is haunted by a "White Lady," the ghost of a woman who once lived in the 3 Lakes Pavilion (also known as the White Lady's Castle) near Lake Ontario. According to  NYFalls.com , she lost her daughter (to kidnapping, murder or ran away) and continues to search for her while dressed in all white. Rochester native Frank LaLoggia turned the tale into the 1988 movie, "The Lady in White," starring "Inception" actor Lukas Haas.

Genesee Falls Inn (Portageville)

This Victorian-era B&B in the Niagara Falls region has a history of deaths (suicides, fires, a drowning) that may have left spirits with unfinished business.

Hinsdale House (Hinsdale)

The Hinsdale House may be one of the most haunted places in Western New York, according to WGRZ . The 2000 book "Echoes of a Haunting" first called attention to the residence where a couple reported many poltergeists in the 1970s, prompting multiple exorcisms from a St. Bonaventure University priest, Father Alphonsus. Today, legends include a pair of brothers who allegedly lived in the house and raided passing stage coaches, killing the occupants and burying them in the hills nearby.

Iron Island Museum (Buffalo)

A former church and funeral home, this museum in the Iron Island neighborhood of Buffalo has been featured on "Ghost Huntrers" and the Discovery Channel's "Ghost Lab." Among the many spirits said to haunt the building is Edgar Zernicke, a.k.a. "Charlie the Ghost," whose cremated remains were left in the basement.

Pillars Estate (Albion)

A popular WNY concert venue is also one of the region's most haunted, featuring voices, invisible footsteps and actual ghost sightings.

If you're traveling in Western New York, the Rolling Hills Asylum located roughly halfway between Canandaigua and Buffalo is worth a stop. Featured on "Ghost Hunters" and "Ghost Adventures," patients that died in the mental institution are still said to roam the halls and include a seven-foot giant named Roy.

The Van Horn Mansion (Burt)

A woman named Malinda Niles Van Horn died a year after marrying James Van Horn Jr. in 1836, but she still refuses to rest in peace. Doors slamming, sounds of whistling, smells of tobacco and perfume, lights flickering and other phenomena have led to theories that she was murdered, committed suicide or died during childbirth or illness. Come in October for the Candlelight Tours, if you dare.

Statler City Hotel (Buffalo)

The Greater Western New York Paranormal Society (GWNYPS), known for the docu-series "Behind the Shadows," regularly leads ghost tours of this 1923 hotel, built by Ellsworth Statler, where some guests apparently never checked out.

I love coming here. A few years back, I came for my first murder mystery dinner and since it's BYOB, I got drunk - fast. And I was completely off on the results! The cast and the owners of Burn Brae are really nice (I have since joined the cast)! The owners of Burn Brae are super friendly and have great stories to tell. You could seriously sit there for hours with them! And yes, I have sat there talking to them for hours - it's awesome! Also, the mansion and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. You could just keep walking around and exploring. Sometimes it does feel a bit creepy though especially with all the dolls around. Check it out if you ever want a nice weekend away!

Friendly hospitality, creative events, and faithful to the history. We've been several times and always come back for more.

We've been several times and always enjoyed it. From their trademark Murder Mystery events, Fright Walk around the grounds, to a private party. They always put in the extra effort to make sure you have fun.

Burn Brae Mansion is hosting a Halloween haunted walkthrough. It's called Dark Forest and it's something that most ages can enjoy this "Spooky" season. It was well done. The actors were great and made sure to have a good time with the scares. After you get your heart racing head out to the main area where there's a few tent shops open. As you meander toward the Stage ( where live music is being performed) you'll be able to have your pick of seating and outside heaters if needed. A local brewery has a stand pouring a couple local brews, some wine and cider. There are some light refreshments and finger foods as well. Come visit before the end of October. Gather the family

I went to Burn Brae Mansion with a group for a ghost hunting tour in November. I want to start off with the positives. The house was very cool and the owners were incredibly hospitable, and to tops the food was great! My rating comes from the group Destination Purgatory Paranormal Investigations that led our tour. We were promised ghost hunting equipment along with a fully edited video of our experiences. Our "ghost hunt" was cut short by a few events that we were promised "due to the cold" when in reality the tour guides were drinking and smoking (quite a few things...) the whole night. Our video was months late, poor quality, and did not include any of our audio. If there was a different group running the tours, I would go back in a heart beat. The experience with them, however, has turned me off.

Burn Brae is a beautiful country Victorian in upstate NY offering fun, bespoke events and stays. It's run by its owners who are a wealth of information and history, themselves. In addition to outdoor concerts, 'haunted' accommodations, and murder mystery dinner events, they offer on the best "Haunted Halloween Walk" in New York. Made up of actors and professional staging, it's a really fun, mildly-terrifying, themed event set outdoors and good for all ages, and it ends in a campfire-side hangout in the woods with music, local vendors, food and drinks. Not to be missed!!

Very rude host, mediocre food, spartan accommodations. Nothing spooky unless you're 5 years old, the mansion is not as impressive as in the photos online. There are dirty dishes and garbage on the deck in front of the side entrance. The Halloween stuff doesn't start until October but it's laying around the property.

I found this bed & breakfast when researching haunted places to take my girlfriend for her birthday. The Burn Brae Mansion checked off all the boxes I was looking for, creepy mansion, nearby cemetery, not too long a drive. We were seriously impressed. We were met by the owners upon arrival, and were told to make ourselves at home. We were the only tenants that night and were given free reign of the mansion and property. We had great fun exploring all of the rooms, and reading the experiences of past guests left around in various notebooks (a great idea!). The bedroom was very spacious and there was no shortage of interesting things to look at and investigate. Dinner was delicious, and the owners were very accomodating on dietary restrictions (my girlfriend doesn't eat pork). They also gave us directions to the cemetery where the original orders of the mansion were interred! It was sufficiently creepy, and we got some great pictures. Back to the mansion for a delightful night's sleep, followed by a delicious breakfast. We learned that the Mansion also hosts murder mystery dinners, and we made sure to get all the information. We will definitely go again!

last saturday, a group of friends and i stayed overnight at burn brae manor. it was my friend's birthday and he had wanted to stay at a "haunted' bed and breaksfast. he found burn brae, and so off we went. the home is beautiful, and the owners are extremely friendly. we arrived around 6pm, and got settled in our rooms (we stayed in the  motel down the hill, as the suites in the house were already taken). we had dinner in the house with the other guests - it was oktoberfest type foods. really delicious. after dinner and dessert, we went down the hill for the "ghost walk". there was a company doing a haunted house and their own version of a ghost walk with actors and stuff. after the activities, we joined the crew and owner for a bonfire. in the morning there was fresh eggs and sausages, and coffee/tea. we had such a great time. we did not see or  hear any hauntings, but another family that was staying there heard stuff and felt breathing on her face. i would really love to stay here again, maybe not so close to halloween so things are more realistic.

Went to one of those murder mystery dinners at the Burn Brae mansion.  The mansion is beautiful! The food was awful.  It was buffet style.  Chicken with mushrooms.  It was cut up chicken breast that appeared to be boiled with a can of mushrooms poured over it. Next dish was Swedish meatballs.  I think they were microwaved momma Lucia frozen meatballs.  Next was penne pasta with red sauce . I think it was supposed to be penne with vodka sauce. Could rolls were served on the table the kind you buy in a package in the bread section.  The murder mystery was ok.  Thank God we went out after to eat some good food.  If this place wants to make it they better hire someone to cater for then or they will fail miserably!

Burn Brae Mansion History

Burn Brae Mansion was built in 1907 by Margaret Ross MacKenzie Elkin as part of the estate of George Ross MackKenzie, third president of the Singer Sewing Machine company, who made his fortune as confidant and advisor to Isaac Merritt Singer, the company’s founder.

Upon George’s death in 1892, with an estate valued at $3.5 million, seven of his children built elaborate summer mansions in Glen Spey. Margaret and her husband Charles Elkin built Burn Brae Mansion as the last family mansion and one of only three still surviving. It is believed that the house was designed by prominent architect Henry J. Hardenberg, who worked on a number of projects for Singer executives.

Margaret continued her father’s tradition of donating to many charities, and she enjoyed throwing lavish parties. She outlived several of her children, as did her parents, including her daughter Elsey, named for her grandmother, who died at 9; her namesake Margaret; Charles Jr. who died at 34; and grandbaby Levi, who died upon birth.

Charles Elkin was an engineer and inventor and held several patents including the Elkin Hose Clamp and for the mouthpieces on pipes and cigars. He also had a spring water bottling works behind the mansion near the woods. He was an accomplished organist.

Burn Brae Mansion has had five owners since the Elkins, and over the years it has served as a boarding house, a tea room during prohibition, and a bed and breakfast. The current owners, Mike and Pat Fraysse, have lovingly restored the character of the home and brought back many of the original elements. They currently operate the house as a bed and breakfast, along with a 12-room motel on the site of the former horse stables.

At least the last two owners – whose combined ownership spans more than four decades – and their guests, have reported unexplained occurrences, such as doors opening and slamming, children’s voices, balls bouncing, and the apparitions of a woman in white, a man in turn of the century clothing, and a more modern man in overalls. Visitors also often report the sounds of animals when no animals are present and the distinct sound of an organ playing, when there is no organ in the house.

More recently, an elderly couple in their 90s, the Hapijs, both died in the house. Guests say that they can still see them from the front yard playing chess by the big window, hear his classical music and smell her daily baking.
