Spooky! Historic Austin-area 'most haunted hotel' to offer overnight stays
It's been deemed "the most haunted hotel in Texas" and been featured on everything from "Ghost Adventures" to "PBS Strange Town."
Soon, in addition to touring the historic Magnolia Hotel in Seguin, located about an hour from Austin, you will be able to spend the night, too.
The property, which was built in 1840, has a long history in Seguin. It was initially a two-room log cabin and was transformed into a hotel in the 1850s. In 1874, it was home to serial killer Wilhelm Faust, according to the hotel website. It had fallen into disrepair and was included in the "2012 Most Endangered Places in Texas" list before owners Erin and Jim Ghedi purchased the property with a goal of restoring it and eventually turning it into a museum.
On Aug. 12, the hotel will open reservations for its restored two-bedroom suite. Stays will be offered Monday-Thursday nights; maximum of four guests.
"Warning, not for the faint of heart!" the website says. "Our spirits have been known to come forward ... so please be aware."
