Halloween lovers can get the fright of their life any night of the year when you stay at the World's first Dead and Breakfast in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.

Dead By Dawn, the World's first Dead and Breakfast is located about 2 hours North of Rockford, and it provides everything a typical bed and breakfast is known for, except for a good nights sleep.

I love Halloween, but I love it for the decorations and the excuse to dress up. I do not love the scariness of Halloween, because I am a wimp, so this Dead and Breakfast is literally the stuff my nightmares are made of. I would never survive a night at Dead By Dawn without losing control of my bodily functions, but maybe you would.

Dead By Dawn features:

  • A Shrunken Head Room for guests to enjoy a frightening good "Unhappy Hour" with beverages, hors d’ oeuvres, and billiards.
  • 3 Themed Guest Rooms;  the "Nightmare Room",  the "Pirate Room" and the " Coulrophobia Room" perfect for those with a paralyzing fear of clowns.
  • Breakfast served daily at 10 a.m....if you make it through the night.

The doors at Dead By Dawn lock at 11 p.m. with lights going out at midnight with a night of terrifying events ahead. Yikes.

Guests must be 21 years of age or older, and reservations for the Halloween season are already filling up. Better book yours now, here...if you dare.
