  1. My grandparents have owned this Inn for many years I’ve worked there for them and it is truly haunted. I have seen things moved after cleaning rooms placing objects in one spot and go back in room and it has been moved also after making beds they would be undone when re-entering room. U can hear whispers of people talking and feel someone behind u. I’ve also seen someone standing in windows looking out while out on grounds with no one in building. The spookiest is definitely the attic not a nice place to be when u r in there and door closes and u can’t get it back open for a moment or two. I’ve also seen apperisitions going from room to room in old dinning rooms.

    • Hi, Angel. My uncle and aunt owned the inn when it was a shell of a place. They fixed it up and built the back area where the kitchen is. My family used to visit a lot in the 60’s. I just retired from the military and was internet surfing when I came upon your message. The in was a great place to visit when I was a kid. The tunnels and the graves where interesting. Buttons and Bows (their dogs) were buried in the back. The inn was used for helping children with handicaps at one time. I believe it was in the news back in the late 60’s early 70’s.
