Overlooking my 17 acre island in the Susquehanna River (1 mile east of Tioga Downs Casino, 1 minute off Interstate 86/17 on the NY/ PA border) is the Fainting Goat Island Inn. The proximity of Tioga Downs, Breweries and Wineries, Tioga Country Club, and a gathering of small towns makes this an excellent location for a fun, relaxing place to stay at ….. a step back in time.
The Fainting Goat Island Inn was voted the 2nd in the 2019 USA Today’s 10 Best Readers’ Choice Travel Awards for the Best Haunted Hotel Category.
“The guestbook is filled with rave reviews peppered with experiences that will send a shiver down your spine. Guests have reported being woken by the voices and visions of two women having tea in the Fainting Room. A child-sized chair has moved beside the bed in the Nubian room, gum balls have spilled onto the floor of an empty hall, footsteps have been heard on a staircase that no longer exists, and eyes have looked back from mirrors. According to a recent intuitive guest, the most active spirit is a little boy. There’s a story about a doll and a knife found in the ceiling and other chilling experiences that the owners are happy to tell on their haunted tour!” – Haunted History Trail of New York State.
Step outside the Inn for a walk around the ample grounds and enjoy the gardens and its many perennials. Bring a book and sit by the river, watch the deer on the island, the ducks on the water, the eagles, and the Pyrenees Mountain dogs. Don’t forget to check out the Fainting Goats!! (and Porkchop, the potbelly pig).
There will be homemade baked goods and a light selection of breakfast foods available in the morning for all guests.
