Hauntings of Batcheller Mansion Inn
An upstate New York inn, the iconic Batcheller Mansion is a staple haunt of Saratoga Springs. The building was originally built by George Batcheller in 1873. Even now, he and his family are rumored to walk the halls of this three-floor mansion-turned-bed and breakfast.
Inside, the ghost of George Batcheller has been recorded saying, “Come find me.” And employees have had experiences of walking in on random conversations between spirits, hearing knocking when no one is there, and seeing cabinet doors open on their own. One employee even had an experience in which he heard a ghost greet him by name while he was sorting laundry. Reportedly, the 1998 landscaping crew spotted the family staring at them from the windows.
Many guests have reported the feeling of a peculiar presence, ghostly orbs, gusts of air, and moving objects. Through the years, ghostly activity has been most commonly cited in the Amelia Le Saux, Queen Maria Pia, and Kate Batcheller rooms. Spirits have also been seen on the grand staircase.Book a Room
