The Qualicum Heritage Inn

Creepy Canada Synopsis

The Qualicum was built in 1835 as a boy’s private boarding school.  After more than 100 years in operation it was sold in 1970 and turned into the current Inn.

Since that time many of its staff and guests have reported bizarre events and sightings.

A worker at the front desk complains of busy signals on the telephone and strange printer performance.

[Note from VIP Investigator – Rob, front desk stated that we made a long distance call from our room (460) and we didnt :S]

One of the Inn’s managers experiences the eyes of a painting following him around his office. One woman staying at the inn with her husband tells of a strange dream she had one evening.

She dreamt that she was sleepwalking but as it turns out described rooms and hallways she could only have known in such detail if she had actually seen them.

It seems as though perhaps this guest had been on a ghostly tour of the building.

Another guest, traveling with her grown son. She heard strange noises in her room on the third floor. Her son, staying on the forth floor described the same experiences in his room.

Whether experienced by staff or guests, the occurrences are all described as relatively pleasant, even if more than just a little eerie.

Some believe they are prankster children from the boy’s school who have refused to give up their old quarters.

A great write up on the

The Qualicum Heritage Inn on Vancouver Island has long been reputed to be haunted. In fact, Robert Belyk found the stories so compelling that he opened his 1990 (2002) book Ghosts, True Tales of Eerie Encounters with over ten pages of the Inn’s haunted past. Later, in 2002, OLN’s Creepy Canada also featured the ghosts of the Inn during one of their episodes. Additionally, previous Inn guests have left tales of paranormal encounters on various hotel review sites online, while former staff members have made public statements regarding their own personal experiences within the building to various online and print sources, as well.
