The Old Stone House
The Location: The Old Stone House is a small boutique hotel located in Bungendore in the NSW Southern Tablelands, approximately 260 kms south of Sydney and 40 kms North-east of Canberra city.
Bungendore was established in 1837 as an ideal location connecting Goulburn, Braidwood, Queanbeyan and Cooma. The railway line was introduced in 1885, creating a population boom.
Almost 200 years since it was first established, Bungendore retains its country heritage. With an eclectic array of characters, the town is both slow paced and inviting with many shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants that make it an appealing destination for tourists. Some of the finest cool climate wineries of the region are nearby with popular food and wine festivals being celebrated in both summer and winter.
This event will see Karen connect and communicate with the ghosts that reside in The Old Stone House - a historic building located in Bungendore, now operating as a bed & breakfast.
Throughout this event, Karen will provide insights and stories as provided by the resident ghosts - Margaret, Millie and Mitchell as well as other spirits who choose to participate on the evening.
Who knows? You may receive your own message from ‘the residents’ or your own loved ones!
Utilising a spiritually active site, such as The Old Stone House may result in participants also experiencing the same connections that Karen has, making this a truly interactive experience!
Please note that is not a 'tour' or 'ghost hunt'.
To prepare for the event please read the following;
- We are entering THEIR home – please treat the ghosts with respect (no taunting or teasing, for example);

Please Note About Receiving Messages from Mediums
Like all medium shows there is no guarantee you will receive a message due to the numbers but Karen Baldwin – Medium will try to read for many as possible. From my experience many people say that even if they do not receive a message they have enjoyed seeing the reactions of those who do.
Some messages given can be confronting and upsetting if you are being given a message you do not wish to hear or receive please let the Karen know and she will stop. Please then respect other guests if they decide to continue with the message, if you feel uncomfortable hearing someone else's messages please feel free to leave the room for a break.
