Gloomy Manor is the first mansion Luigi visits in the game Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. This mansion is similar to Luigi's Mansion from the first game, and is a standard, run-of-the-mill haunted mansion, in the middle of a storm. It is here that Luigi acquires the Poltergust 5000, the Strobulb, the Dark-Light Device, and the second Dark Moon piece. The sub-boss is the Poltergeist, and the main boss is a giant, purple spider that has been possessed by the Grouchy Possessor, which is located in the Cellar. It has 3 floors and a basement, and features 5 standard missions, a boss mission and a bonus mission which is unlocked after collecting all the Boos in the manor.
Luigi's Mansion series
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Not much is known about the Gloomy Manor besides that it is abandoned. E. Gadd was using this mansion to observe the Ghosts before the Dark Moon shattered. During the time E. Gadd spent studying the ghosts he made modifications to the mansion running pipes and wires throughout the mansion. A statue of Professor E. Gadd can be found in the Patio, suggesting that E. Gadd owned the mansion at some point. The music played before the elevator breaks down is the Pause Menu music from Mario Strikers Charged.
I, Professor Elvin Gadd, had been observing the ghosts living in this Gloomy Manor, when suddenly the Dark Moon broke into pieces and the ghosts got all hostile-like!

Luigi's Mansion 3
In Luigi's Mansion 3, there are several references to its predecessor, including a model of the Gloomy Manor found on the 15th and final floor of the Last Resort hotel.
In the Master Suite's Library, there is a puzzle where the player must spin a pinwheel to spin around a area of the room to create the correct path. Among the choices, is a side with a model of the Gloomy Manor and the Dark Moon above it. When the player first examines this, a short clip will play, with suspenseful music as the camera gets closer and closer to the mansion, only for a Golden Goob to pop out of it. It can only be examined once.
