Haunted Simcoe Part 3: The Beck House

Is this Airbnb in Penetanguishene haunted?

Posted by Barrie 360 on Friday, October 30, 2020

Visitors and residents of the house have reported lights flickering and strange noises. They've even felt a slight tug on their blankets when they get into bed. (Perhaps a matronly mother tucking them in?)

While living in the home with his family, Charles lost his wife and two of his young children. It's believed that these three are the most active spirits. Though, the owner of the apartment has stated that as many as 18 spirits live there.

Another is believed to by Charles's daughter Mary. When Beck's wife past away, Mary was charged with raising the younger children. Eventually she left the home to get married and start a family of her own, which created friction between Mary and Charles. When Charles passed, he split his inheritance evenly between all of his children. All except Mary, who received $1.

The story is that Mary still haunts the home in protest of receiving such a small amount.

While many of the rooms in the Beck House are home to permanent residents, one of the coolest things about this haunted house is you can actually rent one of the top floor apartments for a night on Airbnb!

If a short visit with the supernatural isn't enough for you, maybe a whole night will give you the encounter you're looking for.
