Article Index


The Thomas House Hotel in Red Boiling Springs was recently featured in CNN’s list of “Nine Haunted Spots Across America.”

The section of the report on the Macon County hotel reads:

Thomas House, Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee

With a history dating back to the late 1800s, the Thomas House in Red Boiling Springs began as the Cloyd Hotel. Indeed, one of the ghosts still said to roam the bed and breakfast is Sarah Cloyd. Visitors trade reports of possible deaths on the property, which may fuel activity.

The hotel was featured on "Paranormal State" in 2009, an A&E cable network program that aired until 2011.

If you go: You can go for dinner and the "Ghosts of the Inn" show and tour, and book a room at the bed and breakfast. The Thomas House also hosts several "Ghost Hunt weekends," with the next available dates in January, 2014.
