I was staying in a remote Airbnb, but a creepy discovery made me fear for my family and I

A mother feared for her children after finding a creepy painting of her son on the wall of her remote vacation home.

The family, from Sweden, were having dinner at their B&B when their daughter pointed out the bizarre work of art.

They were amazed at the uncanny resemblance the painting bore to their little boy.

The mum, Jennie Stevenson, took to Twitter to share the nightmarish discovery, writing: “We have just arrived at our remote rural B&B and have found a painting of our youngest child depicted as a little girl.

“There’s absolutely no frightening precedent for that, so it’s probably fine.”

The tweet quickly went viral, garnering 1.1 million views and over 8,000 likes.

But viewers left hundreds of comments under Jennie’s post, some even urging her to “get out of there.”

One wrote: “Go! Go now! Don’t look back and don’t let the children near the pond at the end of the garden!”

Another said: “Noooooooo… a lifetime of gothic novels didn’t prepare me for this in any way. RUN!”

A third commented: “It will come alive at night!!!!!!!! It is the only possible result!!!”

A fourth chimed in: “Secluded B&B, bank holiday weekend, closed everywhere, Rai, spooky ‘coincidence’ – perfect setting for a horror plot.

And one even edited the two images together in Photoshop to show the striking resemblance,

They wrote: “50% overlay… is it too late to find other accommodation?”

And the mom replied: “OMG. If I can find the pictures of the other four of us, I’m definitely out of here.”

Jennie then posted a hilarious update, confirming the family “survived the night,” but it probably wasn’t the most comfortable sleep they had.

“At one point I woke up to hear an unusual paper noise, like someone turning the pages of a book,” she added.

“Locked the door, obviously, and was tempted to lock the kids in their own room, but, ftr [for the record]I did not.”

The mother moved to Sweden from the UK two years ago and stayed at the B&B when she returned from a ski trip.

“My daughter just said, ‘Mom, there’s a picture of Barney on the wall,'” she told The Mirror.

The painting is by Swedish painter Carl Larsson and is called Flowers In The Meadow.
