Would You Dare To Purchase a Haunted—and Affordable—Hotel in Wisconsin?

MLS / Realtor.com

In the tiny town of Humbird, WI, there’s a bar and hotel for sale where you can hang out with the locals—even the long-deceased ones.

Teeming with the promise of paranormal activity, the Humbird Hotel Bar & Grill sits just off Highway 12 in the center of the Badger State.

Dating back to 1869, the bar, six hotel rooms, and an accompanying residential space are on the market for $279,900. A buyer must also be prepared for any and all apparitions.

“It’s so old and beautiful,” says listing agent Julie Bahnub with Bahnub Realty, LLC. “And people have experienced supernatural things in there—even the owners.”

Bahnub relayed a couple of spooky tales she’s heard from the bar’s current owners: “They were sitting in the bar and there was this hanging light and it started to move when they were sitting below it. One person got up and stopped it from moving and said he could feel the force of somebody pulling it, so he sat down and it just continued to spin.”

And the current owners aren’t the only ones who’ve felt the presence of otherworldly beings in the building.

The Supernatural Investigators of Minnesota have visited the hotel several times with tracking equipment. They claim it’s extremely active with supernatural activity. A video from last year purportedly shows evidence of spirits roaming the halls.

In one room, folks have reported the presence of spirits in the bed and the eerie feeling of being watched.

Moving into the hallway, a spirit that could be a nurse sometimes carries a tray, possibly helping smallpox patients who may have died in the building. In yet another room, many guests have reported a male spirit watching people.

Child entities have also been spotted in some of the rooms. And in what the hotel calls “the pink room,” an unidentified creature reportedly crawls down the walls.

“I just kind of threw [the supernatural stuff] in in my write-up, because I’m not sure if it’s a positive or negative,” says Bahnub.

She speculates the building might have served as a brothel back in the day, because it was in the middle of nowhere without anything around it.

Inside, the main floor currently serves as a bar and restaurant. Hotel rooms and other spaces are upstairs.

“There are the living quarters up there which are three large rooms for people to live in,” Bahnub explains.

But a buyer will need make a few renovations to the living quarters, she adds. The current owners were in the middle of renovations, but weren’t able to complete the project.

Everything in the building—including the liquor license, bar items, furnishings, and fixtures—conveys with the sale.

Even the spirits—both alcoholic and supernatural.
