stay the night

a night you won't forget

While some of the Franklin Castle’s most ominous chambers are about to have their doors unlocked to stay the night, others are brooding quietly over their stories.

It’s probably not wise to spend the night by yourself, so find a companion, huddle close, and wait to see what the night brings. If it’s any help, you’ll find a notebook and pen next to your bed to keep track of everything you experience while you’re here.

Whatever the circumstances may be, we want to extend our heartfelt greeting to you from within the kastle and assure you that tonight; will be a journey you won’t forget.

FAQ's about 'overnights' and; How do I book this?

Our simple booking rules

Franklin Castle OVERNIGHTS are one of our unique specials events. For more events here at the castle please follow the link below:

The Castle Tours

We are not a bed and breakfast or a hotel in any way. We have two chambers at the castle that can be booked separately or combined into 'Louise's Dwelling' or the 'Kastle Overnight' - adding the Main-South-Hall to our castle dwellers' experience.

1. You may reserve your chamber by paying through this website. You can either pay a deposit or the full amount to secure your reservation.

2. We'd like to give everyone who wants to stay the night a chance to do so, despite the fact that the chambers at Franklin Castle are often reserved hundreds of days in advance - and booked up quickly. If you need to, please cancel any reservations within three weeks of your arrival. We'll miss you here, and the spirits will be the only guests in your rooms, so we have to charge a 20% cancelation fee of the total cost of your chamber reservation.

3. We charge a security deposit of $250. This will be refunded within 3-5 business days after your stay minus possible damage costs.

4. It's wonderful to stay the night as a couple, and it also works very well as a group booking. The larger chambers, in particular, are designed for this. If you're feeling brave, you can spend the night on your own, but keep in mind that the minimum guest rate will apply. Those of you who plan on taking over the entire kastle can make South Main Hall, the entire second floor, etc. your dwelling for the overnight.

5. Franklin Castle does not have any televisions.

6. Yes, we offer the option to go on a 'midnight tour' to explore the entire castle.

7. We welcome you to bring your own food. In your chambers, you will find serving utensils. The list of restaurants that offer delivery service directly to the castle is also provided. If you'd like to cook, Emma's Rooms, 'The Kastle',  and Louise's' Dwelling come equipped with a full kitchen. A small kitchenette is available in Johannes' Rooms. In the morning, you can also grind your coffee; the traditional way.

8. Franklin Castle is ideal for overnight 'kastle dwellers' because it is designed for that very purpose. 'Overnights' are not designed for paranormal research. Franklin Castle paranormal investigation options are available at the following link:

The Para Normal

9. 'Kastle Dwellers' may leave and come back to Franklin Castle whenever they want.

10. Check-in is 4pm | Check-out is 2pm - the next day:)

11. You have your very own bathroom with a shower and bathtub.

12. There is no alcohol served at Franklin Castle. However, you may bring your own beverages - in moderation, please.

13. There are many more options for "Kastle Dwellers" at Franklin Castle. You can find them when you click on the "Book Now" button for each room. Just pick your dates and number of guests to see if the room is available and how much it costs. Another window will show you all the options you have while staying overnight. I can't wait to see you soon!

Emma’s Rooms

Johannes Tiedemann's fifteen-year-old daughter Emma dies in the house on January 15, 1881, soon followed by her grandmother, Wiebke, who died suddenly and unexpectedly, thereby marking the estate's fourth unnatural death. Emma's room has remarkably frequent paranormal activity, reminiscent of happy and innocent vibes, merry music and wonderful parties that Emma lived, clad in ribbons and lace, in her childhood years. Her Bedroom features a queen-sized bed crowned with a Blue Silk Roof, the gothic-style Reading Room [originally Emma's play room], the Black Marble Bathroom, and a large Victorian-style kitchen, painted in Saxon folklore decors. These rooms can accommodate up to two guests to stay the night. These walls are highly active and bursting with creative energy . And, because I know it may get late before you fall asleep, check-out is at 3 p.m. the following day. -- From $175 per guest/night and a minimum of two guests --

Johannes’ Rooms

Johannes Tiedeman commissioned the most brilliant architects of their time, Cudell & Richardson, in 1864, to build a mansion reminiscent of those North German castles of the region of Süderau and Schleschwig-Holstein that he had seen in his youth, before leaving for America, forever. The Tiedeman family history is shrouded in mystery, with myth and fact so intertwined that the legend begins here. The stately Oak Bedroom has a king-sized bed crowned with a Red Velvet roof, a gothic-style Reading Room [originally Johannes and Louise's private room], a black and white marble bathroom, the Chamber Kitchenette and a view to the rose garden with the carriage house behind the castle, all part of Johannes' Dwelling. It can accommodate up to two guests to stay the night. This room is a powerhouse of energy and activity. Because I understand it may be late before you fall asleep, check-out is at 3 p.m. the next day. -- From $175 per guest/night and a minimum of two guests --

Louise’s Dwelling

These were Louise’s own quarters at Franklin Castle in the late 1880’s. Decades later, around the time the Deutsche Sozialisten [German Singing and Dancing Club] sold the castle, rumors began to circulate that it was haunted by the nineteenth century ghosts of Louise and her daughter Emma. Louise's Dwelling takes up the entire third floor. It has two bedrooms, a large reading room, two bathrooms, and a large kitchen overlooking the rose garden and the carriage house. The dwelling can sleep up to four guests. This entire floor has seen joys, sorrows, mysterious deaths and spiritual mayhem and is still very active today. I understand it may be late before you fall asleep, so check-out is at 3 p.m. the next day. -- From $225 per guest/night and a minimum of two guests --

The Kastle

Johannes Tiedeman commissioned the most brilliant architects of their time, Cudell & Richardson, in 1864, to build a mansion reminiscent of those North German castles of the region of Süderau and Schleswig-Holstein that he had seen in his youth, before leaving for America, forever. The Tiedeman family history is shrouded in mystery, with myth and fact so intertwined that the legend begins here. Built between 1881 and 1883, it is said to be the most haunted house in Ohio. A magnetic epicenter of undeniable fascination, this powerhouse of spiritism has witnessed so many adventures and joys, supernatural happenings and sorrows… From enchanting time's of uttermost sophistication of a privileged elite to gritty ‘70s teenage initiation rituals, you need to, physically enter and experience the premises in order to apprehend this roller-coaster of feelings and influences. The Kastle Overnights is for larger groups and extend to three levels, [basement/1st floor/2nd floor] including the south main hall, and can accommodate up to 6 guests. Because I realize you probably won't get much sleep at night, checkout time is 3pm the next day. -- From $245 per guest/night and a minimum of four guests --
