The 1867 historic inn is rumoured to be haunted by a ghost or two. The spirit set here include a woman known as ‘Margaret’, a young boy in old-fashioned breeches and the apparition of a farmer. Other encounters indicate that disembodied footsteps, cold spots and the smell of tobacco have also been reported in the old building.

  1. A couple of interesting things have happened to me at the afton house inn. On the main floor, there is a room with a Jacuzzi in it, I woke up a number of times through out the night feeling as if someone was standing over me. Cold spots around you as you sleep. Creepy.

    • Here is a story alr so once i went to the Afton house inn and it creeped me and my nephew out so we went inside and a voice said [Iḿ watching you Sophia Jisellle Barron…]

  2. Several years ago my husband and I stayed at the Afton House Inn one night. In the middle of the night we heard unexplained odd noises. It was then I was convinced the place was haunted but had no preconceived notions of that. When we came home I tried to find information on it possibly being haunted. At the time I didn’t find anything. I was still convinced it was haunted. Now I see this information.

  3. I am staying at the Afton House Inn, right now in room 44 on the first floor. It has a Jacuzzi in it could this be the room where the woman died?

  4. I was in room 44 at the inn! I kept hearing an infant crying throughout the night. Other then that it felt totally fine. If it was a spirit the energy feels very welcoming and warm.

  5. I am in room 1 and a noise is coming from the bathroom in the Afton House Inn beware I want you guys to run out of the hotel NOW!!!
