I feel it’s a bit overrated and quite crowded. The self- guided tour is exactly that and zero additional information is provided. They could make this a lot better. The basement was closed which seemed to upset a lot of people.

I stayed a night in Sallie House with my husband. We had typical ghost hunting gear with us... digital recorders, cameras, EMF detector. Not much happened at first and I thought maybe it would turn out to be a wasted trip, and all the lore...More

We didn’t go inside as it wasn’t open. I’m not all that superstitious, but to look at, it kinda gives one the creeps. We just drove by and did a quick check

Overpriced location and there’s no way you can get “class A EVP’s” in the house that is surrounded by other houses close by and street noise all around. You could rent this house for a month for the price that they charge for “overnights.” If...More

Every time I visited this house, I have captured evp's that are class A. I personally have never felt any evil or negativity in this home. If you enjoy paranormal, then this is a must visit place.

I had visited 2 years prior and wrote a review on here. Awesome experience the first time. Not so much this time. I was astonished that they allowed 150 people to go through a tiny house within 2 hours. We had to wait 20-30 minutes...More

Weather is unpredictable I understand. But we that pay for the tour can't predict the weather either and coming from out of state, we can't come back the next weekend. VERY disappointed when canceled because of rain and didn't get a refund! Wasted $64!!!
