We are a Family that Loves Halloween and happen to live in a Haunted Victorian Home built in 1895. We have lived here 18 years and many unexplained "events" have happened here & we would like to share the details with all that are interested in hearing them.
The Haunted tour starts with walking down 10 cement stairs into the Stone Foundation of a naturally Creepy Cellar, (we highly suggest you wear non slip shoes, no flip flops please for this event) The Cellar has a whole personality of its own with it's large rough sawn beams that hold up the house, to the spiders that call it home, we also set up some ghoulish displays for your twisted entertainment thru out the spacious area. From there you will walk up to the first floor of our Spooky house where we will share some of the Ghostly happenings we have experienced here and some of the area's have been decorated quite eerily with many that are a permanent fixture thru out the year at our home. We also have a Graveyard outside, other spooky displays and a Harvest Bonfire with limited seating, bring your own camping chair if you plan on hanging out or in case there is a wait.
How frightening is it? That all depends on each person. I have had 5 year old's love it and grown men ask to leave during the tour.
Note: This is not a professional Haunt, there are no chainsaws or heavy Gore. If you enjoy spooky, the paranormal, and wonder if ghosts exist we invite you over. We do not guarantee you will see one of our ghosts, but in the past we have had guests that have felt a presence, heard a whisper, and also a few that have seen what we felt was one of our ghosts. All are welcome, no one under the age of 12 without an adult. Note: If you are a non believer of Ghosts this tour is not for you. Please just stay home instead.
Safety tips: Bring a flashlight, it is dark around Grimley Manor Lake Geneva, Dress warm, wear non slip shoes (no flip flops) there are some tight spots to maneuver, some steep steps to climb, and you need to watch your step around the house & Graveyard. A mask must be worn while touring the inside of the house, no exceptions, Grimley Manor is not a place of Political discussion. No Masks are required outside. We will not allow any Intoxicated persons on any of the grounds of Grimley Manor. Anyone disruptive or rude will be asked to leave, as this is a family Friendly environment.
Sorry we do not offer public bathrooms. The Tour of the Home is not handicap accessible since there are stairs involved, but we invite disabled persons to come sit around the Harvest Bonfire where at times Ghost stories are told there as well.
We try our best to accommodate all who wish to Tour our Home, please be patient if there is a wait, again this is not a professional Haunt & we rely on Volunteers to help, if for any reason we are very short on Volunteers, we may be forced to cut short parts of the tour on certain days.
We are open rain or shine but will close if a Thunderstorm or heavy snow (yes that happened once!) decides to come our way. We do offer a non heated covered area to wait during inclement weather.
