I live near the Old Bermuda Inn, and I can tell you first hand that it is haunted. The story about the lady waiting for her husband to return from war is tru, but what most people don’t know is that she was eventually informed that her husband was killed. That night she threw herself out of the highest window and died. On certain night’s you can hear her crying and then you hear a scream. If you look at the floor below the window, usually the dust/dirt is kicked up at the spot where she would have landed, right after you hear the scream. This is usually followed by her apparition moving from the spot on the floor, back towards the house (but it soon dissapears.) A lot of people on Staten Island have seen this, or at least heard about it – I heard the scream one night – but I didn’t see anything.

Mitchell do you know at what time or day the scream is heard

this might be off topic but my fiance and i had a weird experience a couple of days ago. we were just getting ready for bed and my fiance told me she couldnt sleep so i told her to face me so i could hold her and put her to sleep. as she turned to me we both heard a raspy voice say WHY…..WHY. we stood so still then after about 2 minutes or so i decided to get up and in the apartment it was so hot. i opened my bedroom door and saw her mother laying on the couch she must have fallen asleep watching tv. as i walked closer to her i started feeling so cold and this heavy feeling on my chest. it looked like she wasnt breathing at all. i ran back to my room and told my fiance to go check her it took us five minutes to wake her up it was the scariest s**t i ever experienced. i told this to my co workers they didnt believe me im a strong believer of the paranormal and my fiance and i know what we heard

I live about 10 minutes from the Old Bermuda Inn and I have been there for many parties and family gatherings, it is 100 % NOT haunted.

Okay, the Old Bermuda Inn is indeed haunted. I’ve been there for many family parties and gatherings. If you go in the elevator after midnight, yes there is a force in there. The lights flicker and it takes a long time to get from the second to 1st floor. Also, the bathroom on the seocond floor deffinatly has the old women there, expecially at night, make sure you never go to the bathroom alone there, literally, because the stalls are like little rooms, and that ghost doesnt care if youre peeing or what not. .she will make the little hairs on the back of your neck stand right up. I also live by it, and myself and many other people whom reside on staten island will tell you, it is haunted, and that lady did kill herself and she is still in that building.

Thats only part of the story. In 1814 a there was a lady named Mary (Bloody Mary). One day her husband had to go to war every night she lit a candle. A few days later she stoped eating. She died on the stairwell.

O shocks!! I thought you guys were Bermudians, talking about some haunted place in Bermuda. But then I scrolled up and I saw that it’s some place in Newyork. I’m doing some 900 word essay for my English class and I’m trying to find enough websites and information for my Bermuda ghost topic, but JEESH!! This isn’t a place in Bermuda. O well. *sigh* I believe in ghosts, though. And I really want to see a ghost!!! But I don’t want to be scared out of my mind.

Sara says:

This is true because I know pleanty of people who have had experiences in the old part of the building because that is the location where Martha haunts the restaurant. Both me and my mom had experiences where lights flickered on and off 3 times and plates being thrown against the wall.

I’m putting together the Table of Contents for my next book proposal and would like to include the Old Bermuda Inn and Snug Harbor. So if anyone reading this has some valid, first-hand experiences to share, please contact me directly at Thanks so much!

True,my cousin tells me that the old lady is in a room and that he and his family got the room next to her’s and he claimed he heard banging

I went to the Bermuda Inn yesterday to grab some external photos as I’m looking to include this in my next book, “Ghosthunting New York City”. What would have been the original structure is so buried within the cheesey “Bermuda pink” massive reception hall addition. It’s possible activity, if there truly is any, may have kicked up when the addition was being built, but I can’t say for sure until I get to interview some employees there, if they’re even open to being interviewed. Meanwhile, if any of you have your own personal experiences at the Bermuda Inn or its little quaint Wedding Cottage and are open to sharing, please send them to me at Thanks!

James says:

My fiance and I have just booked the old wing for our wedding next May. I have been there before but did not experience anything. Both of us are believers and we hope that we would have some sort of activity there or have a picture with some evidence of the ghost. Wish us luck!!!!

This is a real haunting! Me and my friend snuck up to the original part of the inn and there were several rooms. I looked in the room right in back of the staircase and I saw as clear as day an apperition of a woman in a white dress and she had tears down her face and she looked at me and said “Where’s my husband?”

i have been there myself and i have seen an apparition in the glass door. this story is very tragic actually.

L'Aura says:

I’ve since been to the Old Bermuda Inn, interviewed employees, taken pics, thermal scanned, tried to get EVPs and video taped. Granted it was broad daylight, but that was the best time as the restaurant was not open for dining so I didn’t have to contend with patrons in the way. There is something of a haunted energy or feel to the original structure & my son’s camera incurred an odd malfunction in one of the rooms upstairs. I’d like to hear from other paranormal investigators as to their results when here.
Please email me at Thanks

I had my Sweet 16 at the Old Bermuda Inn, it ended on Halloween night at around 2 in the morning. The owner’s of the Old Bermuda gave me the pamphlet on the history of it. It really is a very sad story. They told me she was lighting the candles that are in the windows, so now at night when they close they leave the candle lit for her. I was freaked out the night of my sweet 16 which now seems like ages ago, but I did not see, hear or feel anything strange. Although one thing happened that to me was kind of frightening. I had a photographer for the party and he drove me crazy, he wanted me to take a picture in front of the fire place. I noticed that it was right below the picture of the woman (if memory serves me correctly I believe her name was Sarah). The wierdest part was when I got my pictures back, I noticed that I was standing in the exact same spot that she was, our dresses were pretty similar and our hair was almost exactly alike, even with the curl in front. That picture still sends chills up my spine.

okay well the old bermuda inn is really haunted. because where it is haunted there are offices so no one is allowed up there. those people that have those offices say that they get the chills. but anyway the real story is ( the story that the worker told me) that the old bermuda inn a long time ago was actually a woman’s home. her husband went off to war and never came back. she waited for him and waited and waited and eventually she either killed herself in the house or died in the house, i dont remember. but anyway they say where she died upstairs is where its very cold and you know that there is someone present. there is the real story from a native staten islander herself.

sierra staten island says:

i forgot to mention that there is actually a portrait in the old bermuda inn of that woman. i saw it and right behind that portrait is the room where she was standing when the artist painted that portrait, so you know it is true.

â??. . . I would stand,
If the night blackened with a coming storm,
Beneath some rock, listening to notes that are
The ghostly language of the ancient earth,
Or make their dim abode in distant winds.
Thence did I drink the visionary power;
And deem not profitless those fleeting moods
Of shadowy exultation: not for this,
That they are kindred to our purer mind
And intellectual life; but that the soul,
Remembering how she felt, but what she felt
Remembering not, retains an obscure sense
Of possible sublimity. . . .�

i was there for an event, i got bored so i left, i was walking around, and i was at the bar, and the piano started to play, then back at the main hall near the staircase, i saw the young women run up, i have had some creepy experiances

Some years ago,I stopped to look at an old house,now known as the Old Bermuda Inn. The building was about to undergo renovation, but since no one was around I stepped up on to the porch. When I touched the outside window sill I had the distinct impression of an older woman who did not want me there. I left rather quickly. Although I didn’t “see” anything,I haven’t forgotten that very negative impression..

Belever says:

October 24, 2010, 6:59 pm

I was told that they had a seance over at The Old Bermuda Inn, and they said it is true. So don’t keep on saying these stories aren’t true. Just last night paranormal people spent the night at Snug Harbor and they even said those spirits are over there. So really now. Even watch the travel channel when the ghost advemtures are on. They are true stories, I even looked up online one of the places they went too and all of it is true.

Jessica Mersereau says:

November 8, 2010, 11:57 pm

Hello there! Martha Mersereau is my great great great aunt, and I believe that she is still there! I have been in there to see the painting and there was quite a ruckus while I was there.

The Old Bermuda Inn does not seem haunted, but it has an erie feeling in the dining room that has the steps going upstairs, to the Woman’s living quarters.

Amanda says:

January 29, 2012, 5:00 pm

Ok, Well im 13 years old i was 6 or 7 when my aunt and uncle had their wedding there. I didnt know anything about the place being haunted. So i had to go to the bathroom. As i was in the bathroom BY MYSELF, i heard a little beeping sound. When i was fineshed going to the bathroom i washed my hands i turned the water on, then it turned off. I RAN OUT OF THE BATHROOM SO FAST I ALMOST FELL. THATS MY SOTRY.

OBI worker Jojo says:

April 4, 2012, 8:13 pm

Hi readers
I work at the OBI people that say it’s haunted it’s true.
A lady was waiting for her husban at her house and the next day she was still waiting there waiting until she came apron a feeling that made her die so a month later he came home opened the closet to hang his jacket and there she was (locked in the closet) dead he fainted and that’s the true story how it’s haunted

Sara says:

July 26, 2012, 5:50 pm

You people have to remember that there are two parts of the old Bermuda inn and it’s the old area that is now a bed and breakfast that is mostly haunted. Which I will say I’ve been there didn’t have an experience of my own but my mother who is a huge skeptic went once with girls from work and the lights shut on and off three times which is not a big deal, but then they heard dinner plates getting thrown into the wall. Needless to say she believes Martha Mesereau is still there.

Denise Figueroa says:

February 12, 2014, 3:47 pm

The power of suggestion is a powerful tool. The building is old which means little holes in the walls and ceiling, this is where the cold and fluttering chills comes from. This is what the dinners are feeling on the back of their necks and arms. Science kills the our creative side but is also puts theories in perspective.

Susan says:

November 10, 2015, 4:09 pm

I can assure you that this is real. I had my reception there. I went upstairs to use the ladies room, and felt like I was being watched. I felt a strong presence beside me, and a chill went up my spine. When I was back downstairs, I told one of the hostesses. I said, you’re probably going to think I’m crazy but I felt a spirit there. She then told me the history of the place.

A Person on Earth says:

June 3, 2016, 3:23 pm

OK i just wanna say i have been to that place and it is SCARY in the bathroom there are signs on the wall i read them, i was the only one inside i turned to the mirror and i think i saw a ghost IT CREEPED ME OUTTTT
