After the last guest checks out – Abandoned Lookout Inn rumoured to be haunted

July 2021

The Lookout Inn, overlooking Lake Nippising, in Callander, Ontario, was a popular hotel that operated from the mid-1950s until closing in late 1980s. Its dining area and patio provided a great view overlooking Lake Nipissing.

Reportedly, one of the original owners hanged herself in the hotel, after losing her daughter in a drowning accident. The hotel closed shortly afterwards and has been abandoned ever since.

A new hotel was built in 1990 on the opposite end of the property, named Terrace Suites. By 2015, financial difficulties led to the closure of Terrace Suites. However, this would prove to be a temporary, as new owners renovated and re-opened the hotel in 2017.

The long-abandoned Lookout Inn was not included in the re-opening plans by the new owners. Around 30 years of deterioration had left the building pretty much beyond salvaging.

By the way, I didn’t see any ghosts.
