Spend The Night With Ghosts
Genesee Falls Inn in Portageville is located next to Letchworth State Park, and offers more than a comfortable bed and delicious breakfast. In fact, many guests express getting a strange feeling upon entering the building, built in 1870. Previously, the building was an inn with a restaurant where people gathered to have a good time, and on the third-floor ballroom men often practiced bare-knuckle fighting.
Guests to the bed and breakfast report hearing people walking up and down the hallways at night or doors shutting on their own. The building’s current owners have witnessed a young child walking through the kitchen in period dress, and a man sitting in one of the bedroom’s chairs. It’s also common for items to go missing and, following a request for the spirits to return them, they are put back in their rightful spot. Paranormal groups say the building is pretty active and have watched their flashlights turn on and off when prompted.
The reason for the paranormal occurrences? There are many places to point fingers: fires, suicides, even a drowning. The current inn sits on the same property where two prior buildings had burned down. It’s also the same residence where a family lived - one that had a strong history of suicide. None of the family members died in the building itself but many took their lives in the nearby waterfalls. More recently, the inn’s caretaker passed away in the building. Although it’s been over two years since his passing, the caretaker remains protective of him room by closing the door and locking it.
Close to Genesee Falls Inn sits a colonial cemetery – the final resting place of many civil war soldiers and a 7-year-old boy that drowned in the nearby Genesee River. The cemetery was once obliterated by a flood and re-erected by a neighbor. Could the disruption to the graves have disturbed the souls as well? Come visit to see for yourself.
This Victorian-era bed and breakfast has 11 renovated rooms available for overnight visits. Being a half-mile away from Letchworth State Park makes it an ideal location from spring to fall. Visitors are also welcome to stop in during normal business hours to walk around or call ahead to schedule a ghost tour for 1-10+ guests. Paranormal groups are also invited to explore, with an appointment.
Genesee Falls Inn is also a pet-friendly accommodation - learn more here.
