Bayview Hotel

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Bayview Hotel

Bayview Hotel or Bay View Hotel, now a private residence, was in operation as far back as the 1800s. Rumor has it that way back around then, a mentally disabled child was hidden away in the attic for years, and it may be this child’s spirit who haunts the place now. Witnesses have reported objects that disappear and turn up later, the sound of an infant crying in the attic at night, doors and cupboards that open or close by themselves, and footsteps in the hallways. Some say the building is haunted by the 10th Marquess of Queensbury who brings a phantom smell of lilacs.
