Cheaper if you don't stay at the Inn. Reservations are required. We made ours a month in advance. Event includes dinner at the Hammel House Inn. We arrived early, (6 p.m.) and sat on the front porch of the Hammel House Inn overlooking Main St. Soon others gathered and the door to the Inn opened at 6:45 p.m. Our tour guide introduced himself just before the door opened and gave us a brief description of the nights events. Dinner was nice with a salad, bread and drink to start. The main course was vegetables, chicken and gravy. Very good! Then desert was pumpkin bread pudding. It was fantastic! As you are eating, the guide and the Inn owner share some of the hauntings of the Inn along with history of the Inn. After dinner, The guide takes you on a evening stroll of Main St. stopping at each house sharing events that have taken place of visits from those who have passed on. You will also learn many historical facts about the town of Waynesville. After a trip up Main St., you are invited to visit the "Friends Museum". A house built by the original Quaker settlers to help others by providing a place to stay. The guide and the keepers of the museum make you feel right at home as you enjoy coffee, tea, and cookies while touring the rooms that are set as they were in the late 1800's and early 1900's with some of the occupants possessions still in place. The tour starts at 7 p.m. and ours ended before 10 p.m. An October must to get you in the mood for Halloween!
