This secluded inn, which is only accessible via water taxi, is alleged to be haunted by the ghost of a woman whose husband disappeared from the inn one night during a blizzard. The story claims that she remains in the room waiting for her husband and can frequently seen there. She will only leave her room when someone plays her favorite song on the downstairs piano, at which point, she will appear there briefly before retreating back to her solitary vigil.
