Queer Paranormal Road Trip: Rexmont Inn

I have to thank Richard F. for passing along this interesting little tale.

In the tiny village of Rexmont with its one stop sign, you will find a quaint bed and breakfast known as the Rexmont Inn.

The mansion was built in 1875 for banker and businessman Cyrus Rex, where he lived with his niece, Susan Amanda. Cyrus was the namesake for the town and made his fortune selling acre-sized lots to the local miners. He was a "confirmed bachelor" and often traveled to Europe with his "companion" Dr. Andrew M. Gleninger.

The Susan Amanda Room, her former bedroom, is one of the hot spots of paranormal activity at the inn. Visitors and staff have encountered a figure wearing a flowing gown.

But the owners seem to doubt it's Susan. The ghost seems to be taller than a young girl should be.

Cyrus had more than his share of skeletons in the closet. He was a rather private person, yet the townspeople knew he was gay... and that he enjoyed cross-dressing.

So if you find yourself staying the night in Susan's old bedroom and see what appears to be a female apparition gliding across your floor, don't assume it is Susan. It quite possibly could be the spirit of Cyrus Rex, having a little dress-up fun in the afterlife...

Who says drag is dead?

While the inn does not have a website, anyone interested in spending the night at 299 Rexmont Road in Lebanon County can call (717) 274-2669 to make a reservation.

No reservation for me, it is too far to go for an overnight stay!...*giggles*
