Addy-Sea Inn

Bethany Beach, Delaware

BUILT: 1902
OPERATION TIME: 1902 to present


Addy Sea Inn is a quaint bed and breakfast built with thirteen rooms in 1902 by John M. Addy. John’s rambunctious son, Kurty, was on the roof one way when he slipped and fell to his death. Disembodied footsteps can be heard shuffling across the top of the building. A number of other spirits reside in the building. The copper bathtub in Room 1 is known to shake or vibrate vigorously for no apparent reason. Eerie organ music plays in Room 6 though no one is playing the instrument. Paul Dulaney, a famous swimmer who worked as the Addy family handyman, haunts Room 11 the third floor. Other odd happenings include a spirit who runs through the hallways at night, the mysterious smell of perfume, and strange music with no apparent source.
