Orleans Waterfront Inn

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Orleans Waterfront Inn

This historic restored seaside inn is known for more than its beauty–guests have reported unexplained wind gusts and footsteps, slamming doors, and a ghost the owners nicknamed Hannah, believed to be the spirit of a 1920s brothel worker who was murdered. The ghost has been seen naked walking through the inn or dancing in the windows. At least two other ghosts are said to reside here as well.
