Dead by Dawn Dead & Breakfast

A Good Night Sleep Thou Shall Not Get in Your Fright-Themed Room…

Opened October 1st, 2015

After 25 years of running a top notch haunted house, Dead by Dawn Dead & Breakfast was the next path on the Halloween trail. “Dead by Dawn” Dabeck and her husband Jim decided to open a new portal and allow guests to experience the world’s first bed & breakfast where you are assured you will NOT get a good night sleep. 

Along with the haunted theatrics occurring during the stay, there have been several paranormal investigation teams that documented an abundance of activity throughout the building. In the past some of our more famous guests include Butch Patrick, who played Eddie Munster on the TV series, Miko Hughes who played Gage in the original Pet Cemetery, and Daniel O’Donnell , an Irish singer who hosts his own travel show in Ireland. It is the oldest commercial structure in the downtown historical district of Manitowoc and was was built in 1851.

A Different Kind of Hospitality

Our victim rooms include our Coulrophobia room for all the clown lovers, the Nightmare room embraces all your fears and uncertainties, and the Pirate room which holds the secrets of the deep dark waters.

After check in, you are invited to join the daunting host family, who resides in the building permanently, for a bit of an “unhappy” hour. This gathering takes place at the in house watering hole named The Shrunken Head due to its unique trading post decor, and includes pocket billiards on a one of a kind leopard table and exceptional specialty drinks. The Shrunken Head is deemed the world’s only “Creepeasy” since it is open to the public, by reservation only, and is also available for parties, meetings, and small weddings. 

In the morning a “goremet” breakfast is served for the overnight guests at 10:00am. After "Unhappy Hour" you are welcome to roam. Historical downtown Manitowoc offers many wonderful restaurants, pubs, shops, and our very own Maritime Museum all within walking distance.But…..make sure you are back in the building by 11:00pm when the doors will be locked! For your own safety, lights must be out and guests must be in bed by midnight, to accommodate the things that go bump in the night. Remember, you will not get a good night’s sleep here…..muahahaha!
