Housed in a Victorian-style mansion dating back to 1897, this bed and breakfast inn is rumoured to be haunted. Guests and staff have seen a woman in a maids uniform entering a ground floor room, only to find it empty when they go to investigate. This particular room was the maids quarter’s when the building served as a private residence. Others claim to have heard piano music and a ghostly female voice, perhaps that of the wife of a former owner who taught music classes at the mansion.
