Couple Put Dream Home Up For Rent As It's 'Too Haunted To Sell'

Couple Put Dream Home Up For Rent As It's 'Too Haunted To Sell'

A couple say their beautiful home is plagued by ghosts so have put it on Airbnb so others can stay there and enjoy spooky experiences.

Aaron and Erin Clark from Jefferson City, Missouri, bought the gorgeous property, known as Hobo Hill House, in August 2017 and spent months renovating and redoing it.

Thanks to their hard work the house now looks stunning inside and out, with light, airy rooms and a swanky kitchen.

However, looks can be deceiving because the house, built in 1910, appears to have a trouble past, because the family say they experienced a number of creepy goings-on.

Aaron and Erin said lights, heaters and the kitchen sink would switch themselves on and off and that their dog out refused to go in certain areas of the house.

The couple say their eight-year-old daughter started to have bad nightmares and began sleepwalking with Aaron saying it was 'as if she was possessed'.

And if all that isn't enough to make you think 'nope', they say they also spotted a tall man wearing a top hat and that voices would say 'hi' as they entered the house.

The family lived in the property for around seven months, which is around seven months longer than I'd have lasted, before deciding enough was enough and moving out.

Now, they say it wouldn't be right them to move in another unsuspecting family, so are reluctant to sell. Instead, they've listed the house on Airbnb and warned prospective renters that the house has featured on an episode of US show The Dead Files, which is an impressive claim to fame.

Speaking to the News Tribune Aaron said: "We didn't think it would be right selling to another family knowing what we know.

"We'll just turn lemons into lemonade, and since the prison is so close and people in Jeff are interested in that sort of thing, we'll just turn it into a short-term Airbnb and people can stay and have experiences."

Aaron told the news outlet that the first group to book into the home, which sleeps up to 10 people, couldn't last the whole night.

If you're feeling brave enough and you're in the area, you can rent out the house here.
