There are differing reports as to whether the Castle Inn is still open as a bed-and-breakfast or is now a privately owned home.

The 1891 inn is said to be haunted by two ghosts. One is a carriage driver who long ago accidentally set a fire here, and perished in it. He has been spotted as an apparition and has been known to cough and whistle about the place, and play pranks like hiding guests belongings in odd spots. The second ghost is a little girl in a white dress, who can be seen and heard pattering throught the inn. She bounces guests’ beds and touches women on the leg, sort of like a cat rub. She is said to have drowned in a nearby pond.
