Shelburne Inn

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Shelburne Inn

This historic inn was built at the turn of the nineteenth century as a boarding house and hotel. During the early twentieth century, a team of horses pulled the inn across the street to where it now resides today. And shortly after the inn began operations again, it became clear that the ghosts that haunt the establishment also made the move. The building is rumoured to be haunted by Charles Beaver, who is guilt after forcing his wife and daughter to run the business for decades, and returned to apologise. Employees and guests have seen a male apparition in a suit roaming the halls, as if looking for someone.

  1. In early 2008 I stayed at the Shelburne while on my honeymoon. My bride and I had booked the attic room on the third floor. I had no knowledge of paranormal activity in the vintage styled lodging beforehand. However, I experienced something that I was unable to explain then and to this day I cannot explain. At around four in the morning I awoke to a bright light coming from the room adjacent to where we were sleeping. It literally illuminated the entire room. Confused, I sat up and rubbed my eyes to assess what I was seeing better. A few seconds later I was amazed to see a bright white orb gracefully float from the the other room into ours. And although my adrenalin was pumping and I was frozen with fear, this energy and light anomaly didn’t feel menacing. I actually recall it seeming very peaceful. It simply glided slowly past the foot of our bed and dissipated into thin air. I was totally shocked at what I had seen. Immediately I jumped out of bed and ran to the window to see if I could dismiss it as a passing cars head lights or some other rational explanation. Of course I saw nothing except the dark of night and a few streetlights at that early hour. My wife slept through the entire experience which only lasted for about twenty or so seconds. Then I laid back down and eventually fell asleep again as I contemplated what had happened and why. The next morning we went downstairs for the breakfast portion of our accommodations. After putting in our order with the innkeeper, I asked if there had ever been any reports of strange activities on the property? The innkeeper had an interested look on his face and said. “Why?” “What did you see?” I replied “I’m not sure, but I saw something.” Then he said “Well, we usually get reports of sightings in the hallway and on the stairs.” Then he walked away and that was all that was said about it. After breakfast, he asked if we would like to move to one of their private offsite houses at discount. He mentioned one of the house had just opened up and had awesome views of the Columbia river. My wife and I said that sounds great and enjoyed the rest of our honeymoon there, but I never forgot about my ghost encounter at the Shelburne.
