Quite an experience here! I will not give it away but you must check out what happened here! We were so enthralled and The Ghost Walk is amazing!

There really isn't much to say. There is no public tour as this is a private residence. However is is nice to say you have seen a house that Blackbeard the Pirate stayed in.
