Woman Who Sleeps in 'The Conjuring' House Reveals What It's Really Like

A worker at the real-life The Conjuring house shared what her average morning is like after she spends the night at the infamous haunted house.

Most people get that dreaded feeling the night before work, but for Madison Heinzen, that feeling is likely at the extreme.

Heinzen works at the real-life home that inspired The Conjuring movies and her family used to own the place. Now, she still works there as part of the house's operations, staying on the property for one week per month, during which she helps run tours and events for visitors.

The home gained fame in the 70s when the Perron family moved in and consequently claimed to suffer intense paranormal activity that later acted as the inspiration for a book series written by one of the family's children.

Despite taking the form of a normal "day in the life" video, with uplifting instrumental music, Heinzen's day at work is far from normal.

She wakes up after sleeping alone in the house and explained that the first thing she does is check the security cameras, before making her way through the house. A Ouija board can be seen decorating the living room above the bed. Heinzen said she greets the entire house every morning, likely praying she doesn't get greeted back by any voices.

"I don't know why, it's something that I've always done," she said. Heinzen then goes on to clean the entire house, replacing bed sheets and mopping the floors for the visitors ahead. The beds and rooms they belong to look straight from the movies, even featuring old bears and dolls on each bed.

A quick inventory check of the house's merchandise takes place before awaiting the arrival of visitors wanting a tour of the infamous home.

Heinzen and her family have owned the home since June 2019 but put it back on the market last year for $1.2 million. Her father has worked as a paranormal investigator for over a decade and Heinzen has been on hand to help since the age of 13.

"My family has always been interested in the paranormal and my dad has been a "ghost hunter"- or as we like to say paranormal investigator- for over ten years. I started joining him on investigations as young as thirteen years old! When we saw the house was for sale a few years ago, my parents took the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to allow enthusiasts and paranormal investigators to visit the infamous home," she told Newsweek.

The three-bed, one-and-a-half bathroom home is located in Rhode Island.

"In the three years I've been involved there, I've had some very crazy paranormal experiences. Some things I've experienced in the house are disembodied voices, shadow figures, doors opening and closing on their own, objects moving, and much more," added Heinzen.

Daughter Heinzen managed to find a niche on TikTok, where she regularly shares insights of her unconventional home and even live streams from the house weekly.

With an impressive 1 million followers, she gives tours of especially spooky rooms like the basement and gives lessons on the house's past, including a surprising daycare run from the allegedly haunted house.

The basement, as reported by Newsweek last year, appeared relatively untouched, with an infamous "well room" used by the original owners for their main water supply.

"When I'm there monthly to help care take for the property, I set up a few interactive live-streams for my fans to investigate the home with me, to communicate with the spirits there," Heinzen told Newsweek.
