“Very cool”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Went there with visiting friends. My buddy was scared to death after he saw a face in one of the mirrors. His wife kept telling us to stop screwing around and touching her, we were 15 feet behind her. Well worth the visit.

“Stop at the Ghost Tour”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

The Sorrel Weed House was a stop on our trolley ghost tour and while the interior wasn't the most impressive I've seen, the 'experience' was worth it for anyone interested in the paranormal.

“Ghost tour”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We went for a late night ghost tour, and it was very spooky! Hearing about the history of the place really set the mood. When we first stepped into the parlor, I felt a moment of intense panic. I didn't really see or hear anything, but it still felt very creepy.

“Cool place”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We went during the day to avoid the ghosts. From some of the reviews, I think your visit may depend upon your guide. Emma was my guide and she was awesome, also beautiful! She knew everything. I thought she was a member of the owners family the way she made the visit so personal.
