The History of The Schooner Hotel
Local people consider Alnmouth as a small and quiet seaport town, haunted by wickedness. The allegation roots from the infamous inhabitants of the town, who committed notorious deeds and took shelter in the small village. These murders, smugglers and vagabonds would reach the seashore via ships and other waterborne transports. But the most popular one among them were schooners, a variant of cargo vessel – ideal for people with shady past to flee in anonymity.
Built in 1600s, this hotel by the sea served as a shelter for many notorious people who chose the village of Alnmouth as their destination after all the wrongdoings they have committed. That is why the whole hotel reeks with unnerving incidents that took place within the four walls. The walls of Schooner Hotel have witnessed suicides, murders and family massacres.
Spirits of withered and demented souls haunt the whole hotel frequently. Apparently, the spirits don’t care about being seen. That is why at least sixty sightings of distinct spirits were reported. Many paranormal investigators have visited Schooner Hotel. It was featured in REALLY channel show “Most Haunted” twice. This spooky reputation has made Schooner Hotel the #1 Halloween night spending spot among ghost and paranormal activity enthusiasts.
