The Route 6 Motel – Haunted House
The Route 6 Motel is reported to be so scary that they have a safe-word. It was a real motel from 1955 to the mid-1970’s when ‘accidents’ and disappearances forced the owner to close it. It stood empty for 40 years, but it is now part of the Cavendish Beach Adventure Zone. You can crawl, walk or sprint through the pitch-black Route 6 Motel’s haunted halls or if you’re too scared, stop and scream “check out!” three times and a staff member will help you get out of the haunted hotel.

Haunted Mansion – Nights of Fear
For a spooking good time this Halloween, gather up a group of ghouls and head out to visit the Haunted Mansion – PEI’s largest, scariest haunted house! Children & the faint of heart should come during the daylight hours before our spooks come out.
In the late 1890’s, Dr. Jack built this elaborate mansion as a home and a hotel for weary travelers after leaving his home in London. He brought the feel of old London with him in the Tudor style of his architecture and in the recreated streets of London deep in the cellars beneath the mansion. His elaborate gardens drew visitors from far and wide to Kensington, but a sinister rumor began to circulate hinting of a dark side to the doctor.

The staff of the King’s Playhouse, one of the oldest community theatres in Canada, know that the ghost of Captain George haunts the theatre and reserve a front-row seat for him at every performance.

Even some patrons have recounted stories of being grabbed by an invisible hand when they have attended a performance there.
65 Grafton St, Georgetown
In 1764, Samuel Holland came to Canada from the Netherlands when he was appointed surveyor-general, so he had to divide up the land on P.E.I. into 67 lots. It is said that his wife fell through the ice of Holland Cove while looking for her husband. Locals and visitors alike say that her voice can still be heard calling her husband’s name, while some people have reported seeing her ghost dressed in a white robe in the area when the tide is high.
Scotch Fort Cemetery
Visit the historic Scotch Fort Cemetery, where it is said that a fiery spirit ‘in the shape of a ball’ has been sighted by visitors as illuminating graves in multiple, different forms. The local legend says that in 1773 a skeptical Scotsman named Peter Macintyre went out in the middle of the night to confront the fiery ghost. He was found dead the next morning with a pitchfork thrust through the tail of his jacket, which pinned him to a nearby grave.
You can visit Lennox Island, which is said to be haunted by a vengeful spirit who may be the cause of visitors to the island disappearing in the nearby woods. Locals and visitors alike have also reported seeing a dangerous ghost named “Bubble Face” who roams the shoreline and haunts travellers.
Gather your friends together and take an eerie stroll down Todd Road to see his ghost. The story is that robbers jumped Todd, who didn’t have any money with him and decided to kill him, so he couldn’t identify them. Local people say that Todd’s ghost has been roaming his road ever since.
West Point Light House Inn
The West Point Lighthouse is well-known for being haunted by Willie, who worked there for 50 years and never missed a day of work. So, who exactly is Willie? Willie’s real name was William MacDonald and he was the first Innkeeper of the West Point Lighthouse. People who visit the Lighthouse Inn have reported that you can feel cold spots throughout the Lighthouse, and sometimes lights will just turn on for no good or apparent reason.
Ghost Ship of Northumberland Strait
The burning Ghost Ship of the Northumberland Strait has often been seen off the coast of Nova Scotia or Prince Edward Island in Canada. Most times, it appears as a schooner with 3 or 4 masts, with white sails that are engulfed in bright flames. Since 1786, sightings of the ghost ship in the Northumberland Strait have been reported and continue to present day. Why not visit the site this Halloween to check out whether you can see the Ghost Ship?
