    This is our return to the infamous Shanley Hotel. Located an hour from New York City, this amazing hotel is truly like walking back into 1845. Located around 8 hours from Toronto we will be car pooling to this event.

    We have the unique opportunity to investigate this historical hotel before it is the destination of many of the paranormal group in the States. Built in 1845, this hotel has seen it's share of changes to the hamlet of Hudson Valley, but how active is it? 

    The Shanley Hotel consists of 35 rooms, hidden basements, secret pathways and the seductive "Bordello". Upon entering the Bordello, people have reported feeling light-headed, shortness of breath, heaviness and an over-whelming feeling of joy and sadness. 

    We will also be doing psychic readings with Gordon Ellison, but these are not covered in the cost of the investigation. You can contact Gord to set a reading up ahead of time or talk to him over the weekend.

    No equipment? don't worry, we have plenty for you to use.
