Get to know Haunted St. Augustine

Haunted St. Augustine

As the oldest city in the US, St. Augustine has a rich, complicated history spanning more than 450 years. Which translates to a past full of stories—often the kind of tales told in the dark of night—about haunted St. Augustine. You’ll also find St. Augustine on the list as one of the most haunted cities in the US, so if ghost hunting is for you, there are many tours dedicated to seeking out these otherworldly phenomena in our area.

If you want to truly explore haunted St. Augustine, start by joining us at Casa de Suenos, our luxury bed and breakfast in St. Augustine. Not only does the history of our building go back to the early 1900s, but it was also once the location of the most successful funeral home in the city. While our Inn has been completely updated and remodeled since those times, we’ve kept the old world charm, though the past is never entirely erased.

Let your love of the season guide you to our St. Augustine Bed and Breakfast. Each of our seven guest suites are luxuriously appointed with high-end linens, plush robes, and private baths—many with jetted tubs and private balconies. You’ll appreciate our connection to the history of this area while enjoying our modern amenities. Start planning your next getaway to haunted St. Augustine and book a room today!
