This guest house was once an orphanage that dates back to the 1860s. It is believed to be haunted by the children who passed away here from yellow fever. Their spirits have been spotted in the hallways and guests have heard them giggling within the walls. A nun's apparition has also been seen in the top floor's second wing.

  • Halloween night 2017 noisy spirits

    My husband and I stayed here on Halloween night 2017. We checked in early and walked around the property. I noticed there was a rack of shopping carts for luggage in the pathway of the orphanage. There was a small building connecting the main building. I felt the small building was the former housing for the slaves. It was closed up so I had no proof of this. I spoke aloud to my husband that I felt the spirits of the slaves did not like the shopping carts there because it was in their pathway blocking free passage to and from the main building. We went to a relatives that night. We walked all over with our niece and nephew trick or treating. We retired in the orphanage about midnight and fell fast asleep. Sometimes in the early hours I was awakened from a sound sleep by noisy banging coming from the front area. It sounded like the shopping carts banging together. I was annoyed at being awakened and figured it was pranksters although I didn't hear any laughing, shouting, or talking. The crashes went from steady to sporadically banging. Never a human sound. I began to get scared. It didn't sound normal. I heard the room next door open and someone went out , I assumed to see what was happening. I was too scared to move and my cell phone was dead, so I lay listening. It went on for a good twenty minutes I'd say. I woke my husband and we lay listening. Soon after the noise seemed to fade away in the distance and stop. The next morning there was a girl sitting in front of the rooms on a laptop. I asked her if she had heard anything the night before. She said that she had, and that there were loud banging noises. I asked if she'd heard talking or shouting or anything. She said she hadn't. In the elevator there were two men setting up equipment. I asked them were they going to ghost hunt. They said they were. I told them that they missed it all the previous night. We checked out with a black girl. I noticed there was a camera in the area I have indicated and asked if they saw or heard anything on the camera. She replied in the negative and said in a joking manner " don't tell me you are relating a ghost story to me " we laughed and I told her that we had heard noises. She acted like she didn't believe me, but I know for certain that 2 other people at least heard mysterious and scary noises that night. There are definitely spirits there. Our relatives told us that there are many children and adults buried on the grounds because this was common during epidemics in those days . I hope the new owners renovating are prepared for some surprises !

  • my experience

    Back in 2014, me and my ex once stayed at St. Vincent Hotel to bring in the new year's together. upon pulling up to the place was an eerie feeling without me even knowing yet that the place had history of ghost. we checked in and started walking to the room and on the way we started seeing what appeared to be homeless people or junkies staying there but we didn't pay it no mind being that at the time the rooms were like 78$ a night. through our night of staying I did here someone knock on the door but no one was there when I checked. A little after that I heard someone running up and down the hallway like someone was playing but still nothing when I checked. I can say that the place is haunted but the new owners made this place a beautiful place to stay by remodeling the whole place. the rates are just too expensive now. like 288$ a night.

  • My experience

    I went to this place in 2018 and stayed a night. When we first arrived it was 4:30am and there was a little African American boy and a little white girl on the side walk outside this place. Not in modern day clothing at all. They seen me and my cousin and ran down the sidewalk and disappeared. Our check in was at I think 3. We asked for the most haunted room. I can't remember which one it was but it had a double bed. And was at the end of a hallway in the south wing. We went to use the restroom before going on the elevator and noticed the little African boy and little white girl in a picture outside the bathroom. We had apparitions running back and forth in our room. We decided to goto the pool and we were smoking a cigarette and heard "aunty I can't swim" and a splash no one was in the pool. I went to go get my cousins contact lenses and see the boy staring at me from the front gate as I walked by before we went into town. That night I was sitting outside on the balcony and went to go back the room when I entered the hall to the room the lights turned out in the hall they are motion censored. I seen what appeared to be nuns by every door going down the hall. I bravely walked to my room and layed down in my separate bed and told my cousin what happened. We both had dreams of the little girl drawing with a red crayon. And woke up with red markings on the blankets from we a assumed a crayon or a marker. The second time we went to visit and just use the restroom and the south exit door slammed on us and the glass broke with no one touching it. We recorded it but sense we have lost the recording to this. We have been back and they have completely changed the place. Not sure if it's still haunted.
