Albert Shafsky House Bed and Breakfast Inn

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Albert Shafsky House Bed and Breakfast Inn

This 1902 historic house was formerly the private residence of the town mayor, and is now a delightful bed and breakfast inn. It is believed that the ghost that haunts the inn is a former owner and builder, who has been seen standing at the foot of guests beds. The tobacco he smoked when he was alive has been smelt in some rooms on certain occasions, and loud footsteps have been heard tramping through the house in the hours between dusk and dawn.

  1. Hello, I stayed at the shafsky house inn back around 2005. The innkeepers and food were great and it was well kept. I did have a few occurrences here that were strange, and I believe paranormal. I had kicked off my shoes before changing for bed at night. In the morning they were no where to be found! I had looked all over the room, until finally checked out under the bed itself, and they were nearly tucked under the center area of the bed!!! Also I had noticed several pennies scattered on the Wood floor, twice!
    It is known that copper is a metal element easy for ghosts to move. I asked the innkeeper about that and she said she it happens all the time, almost like the spirit is saying hello. Talk about pennies from heaven!!

  2. I never stayed at another bed and breakfast on Coloma St in the late 90’s. I remember it to be a large Victorian, possibly yellow, with a small cottage in the back yard where I stayed. I had several strange and fitful dreams throughout the night, but one in particular sticks with me to this day. I walked along a rock walkway that ran along the main house. A hole opened up in the walkway revealing a crawlspace underneath. An Asian woman was lying on her back with a leather satchel looking up at me. The next morning at breakfast, the owners told me that the home was haunted and that a doctor once lived there with his Chinese wife. I think they said it was in the 30s. I can’t remember the rest of the story, but if she went missing, I am willing to bet that she’s under that walkway on the south side of the main house. The morning we were to check out, the owners had a psychic visit the property. That psychic apparently had sensed some of the same things I had dreamt about while staying at the property. Do you know the house that I am talking about?

  3. I was wrong about the house being on Coloma St. I stayed at The Seasons Bed and Breakfast located at 2934 Bedford Ave. It was the late Nancy Bradley who came to the property when I stayed there.
