Haunted Nights presents Halloween Bash at Belle Grove Plantation
Friday, October 30th and Saturday, October 31st

The Belle Grove Plantation is a location that both chills the bone and pleases the eye. As featured on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters (2014) and Travel Channel’s Kindred Spirits (2019), over three hundred years of rich history has left a haunting and eerie impression on the old plantation and the spirits of generations past still linger within the walls waiting to tell you their stories.

Full-bodied apparitions of Union Soldiers guarding the entrance, walking the grounds and lurking in the hallways have been witnessed by many guests and visitors. Guests have also seen and interacted with at least two ghost cats. Their vocal cries, brushing past people’s legs and even curling up on the pillow beside the guests as they sleep at night. The phantom felines are still seeking someone to scratch their ears.

The mischievous Jacob is a spirit of a small boy that many people have encountered. He likes to nick items from the kitchen, bounce balls up and down the hallway whilst guests are sleeping and hide around the corners. There have been EVPs (electronic voice phenomena) captured of the young boy by several paranormal investigators. Is he just looking for a good time? Perhaps you’d like to engage in a game of hide-and-seek with him!
Orbs, light anomalies, shadow figures, full-blown apparitions, lights turning on of their own volition, phantom whistling, disembodied voices—if you’re ready to experience a crossroads of spirits then the Belle Grove Plantation is waiting for you. The only question remains—are you brave enough to do a lone vigil with the Union Soldiers standing guard over the property?

Join the Haunted Nights Crew as we bring the Roadshow to the Historic Belle Grove Plantation in King George, Va. for a 2 night Halloween Bash that will be full of haunts and scares, costume contests, and great investigations.

Deck the Halls
Monday, November 30th to Friday, December 4th

Belle Grove Plantation starts the Holiday Season with our annual Deck the Halls. The first Friday after Thanksgiving, we cut fresh greenery from another local plantation to prepare for the coming weeklong decorating. On Monday, we open our doors to our decorating groups. These groups come together to create the magic of the season.

Groups will select one room to decorate. After months of planning and a week of creating their masterpieces, we will open the doors of Belle Grove for the Holiday Season with Brunch with Santa. As our guests come to experience the wonder, we will ask each to vote for their favorite room. At the end of the year, the top three rooms will win prizes.

This year our theme is “Christmas Through the Years”. We ask each group to select a time period to recreate. We only ask that items used in the decorating not be commercial in nature. We ask that you don’t use nails, glue, tape or thumb tacks in the walls. We ask that you please clean up after you finish and make plans to return to remove the decoration. We have lots of Christmas decorations we have collected over the years and have Christmas trees that you can use. We ask that you please select your room, so we know who is doing each.
