Welcome to Scarebnb, the place to find your perfect haunted house getaway! We've rounded up some of the best haunted houses (and other dwellings) from literature, and laid them out for you. Below you'll find a world map of all of the locations along with a legend telling you which numbers correspond to which books. There's a slideshow of all the listings, this is a great way to view them on a computer. And after that, scroll through all of the listings but this time, we've added a description of the title, a scare rating, and suggested further reading for each book on the list!
