Halloween is more than trick-or-treating, goblins and scary decorations.
Some folks actually like to head to haunted places to hunt ghosts and learn more about the stories behind why a place is haunted.
Below we list four such places in the Northeast and how you can lodge near those places through VRBO.com.
VRBO stands for Vacation Rentals by Owner.
Good luck with your scary vacation and don’t let the ghosts get you.
The Amityville Horror House, Long Island, N.Y.
Ronald DeFeo Jr. killed his parents and four siblings in this home in 1974. The horrific event captivated the media and a book called “The Amityville Horror” was released in 1977. A series of movies followed.
The house is said to be haunted by its violent past.
You can lodge close to the house by staying at one of these many Amityville, N.Y. listings on VRBO.com.
Seabrook-Wilson House, Port Monmouth, N.J.
There have been 22 reported ghost sightings at the Seabrook-Wilson House, which dates back to 1650.
Often referred as the Spy House, the building was a common drinking spot for both British and Colonial soldiers.
Pirates and young children make up some of the ghost sightings.
Rent one of these places near Port Monmouth to visit the Seabrook-Wilson House.
Ledge Lighthouse, New London, Conn.
It is said that ghosts of former lighthouse keepers haunt the building, which is now isolated.
The Ledge Lighthouse has since been automated.
Official tours to the lighthouse run in the summer months, but there are private boaters that run out of New London that could get you close to the haunted lighthouse.

Concord’s Colonial Inn, Concord, Mass.
Concord’s Colonial Inn dates all the way back to 1716 and may have been a stop by soldiers.
The entire property is said to be haunted, but room 24 is the most haunted as paranormal investigators felt the presence of both a male and a female spirit, and even claim to have caught the words ”later” and ”help” on tape.
You can stay at the hotel by booking here or stay nearby at a VRBO if you are too scared.
