Stayed at the Lemp in conjunction with a 8:30 pm ghost tour, then a 1030 pm check in for the bed and breakfast. The ghost tour was...eeh..fun to learn the history, the tour guide was ok. It could have been great, the stories of the Lemp family are amazing and tragic. A good storyteller as the tour guide would have made all the difference. That being said, it was ok, a good introduction to the history of the building. The tour is done in the dark, and you carry a video camera which is provided to pick up any ghost footage etc, so that was fun.
We stayed in the Lavender suite. Gorgeous room, huge bathroom (one of the few with a private bathroom and it's enormous). It was after check in that we really had the most fun. You are left with the other overnight guests to explore all night long. We stayed up until 6 am and had an absolute blast. Is this place haunted? Absolutely. We spent a few hours in the basement "talking" to a ghost. We had a flashlight sitting on the table. We would ask questions, the light would come on and off in response. Nobody was near the light..it was really amazing. Tons of orbs in pictures, very real "cold spots" etc.
Finally went to bed at the crack of dawn, and it sure was obvious that it was dawn as there are no shades or heavy drapes on those giant windows. Slept with a pillow over my face to try to block some of the light. Even if we had gone to bed at a decent time, who wants to get up at dawn when you are on vacation? Bed and "Breakfast" is really an understatement here. The "breakfast" is what is on your table in your room at check in. 2 granola bars. An Otis Spunkmeyer cookie, a bag of potato chips and a bottle of water. Serving an actual breakfast would be great.
So, recommend it? Yes, if you are looking for a really interesting and different night. If you are looking for a traditional B & B however, this isn't it. There is a GREAT restaurant up the street though that served an amazing breakfast, Benton Park Cafe and Coffee, across the street from Gus's pretzels :)
