Haunted Hotels - Vrooman Mansion - Paranormal Activity Caught on Camera!

Wisconsin’s Summerwind mansions history is said to be straight out of a horror movie. With a terrifying history of demonic possessions, suicides, murder, vanishing corpses, dark apparitions. It’s no wonder the haunted mansion was looked as a place you should really stay away from. Now in ruins, only the remnants of a grand and elaborate mansion are left.

The house which was a former shell of itself finally met its demise when a house fire tore through it back in the late ’90s. There are those that say it was struck by lightning as a way to get rid of the evil within the mansion. Could higher forces be at play, or was it random vandals that caused its final downfall? Summerwinds’ history stretches back to the 1920s when it served as a summer getaway for a former U.S. commerce secretary. Before Summerwind, the grounds served as a summer retreat for an 18-century explorer.

So why was it so haunted? Check out the video we found and find out why.

Cursed Land?

There are those that say the land was cursed and that the mansion should have never been built in that area. Could the land be part of some sort of Native American burial ground that was disturbed? Others say it’s an entity like a Wendigo that’s been in the area for who knows how long. Another possibility could be it’s located near some kind of energy center that could be attracting entities? That doesn’t explain all of the dark entities and evil things that have gone within the mansion’s dark history.

    1. Land O' Lakes Wisconsin. It burned down due to being struck by lightening. I was there twice in the early 1980's before it burned. 


  1. I used to live about an hour or so away and go up there to have fun to see if we could see anything every time I set foot on the property I have this unsettling feeling like I'm being watched 

    1. I first learned of this place abt 2 yrs ago online.  Come to find out, I had vacationed within abt 5-10 mi. of this place most of my life, not ever knowing a thing abt it!!  My folks had property in the area.  Took my breath away!  Couldn't believe it.  Still can't believe I hadn't heard abt it much sooner.  Maybe people don't WANT to mention it!  Pretty Chilling!  Pretty Cool, too!  It IS a Wonderfully Beautiful part of the Country & the World!

  2. There is only one LEGAL WAY to visit this place! That's with an event held there by the Fox Valley Ghost Hunters. Whom have permission to all of the property. They hold approximately three or four events there every summer.  Yes there is a charge but the money goes to the Summerwind restoration society. If you plan on going there on your own chances are good that you will be kicked off and possibly arrested.  There are neighbors around that location That hate the idea of strangers there and Do call the police when they hear people over there! If you want to visit this place contact the Fox Valley Ghost Hunters either on Facebook or Foxvalleyghosthunters.com to get more information. 

  3. Grown up about an hour near the mansion and have been their countless times, even with a quija board and I dont think its actually haunted… All that remains is the stone foundation.
