You can rent this haunted house in Ontario for a lot cheaper than you'd think

Think you have what it takes to spend the night in a remote Victorian mansion where at least two children died and the lights turn on and off at random?

You can be the star of your own formulaic horror flick this fall by renting an actual haunted house through Airbnb.

Less than two hours north of the city, in Penetanguishene, ON, resides a stunning old home built in 1885 by a lumber magnate named Carl Beck.

Guests of the "Beck House," as it's now called, have reported seeing objects move around on their own and various ghostly apparitions.

When Beck himself passed away, he reportedly split up his estate evenly among all of his children — except for Mary, who got just a single dollar.
