Cornerstone Mansion Bed and Breakfast

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Cornerstone Mansion Bed and Breakfast

This 1894 bed and breakfast inn is housed inside a historic mansion, which has many ghostly tales associated with it. There have been reports of the apparitions of a young man and an elderly former owner appearing on separate occasions in a rocking chair located in the parlour room, and disembodied footsteps have been heard in the hours between dusk and dawn. The resident spirits don’t appear to be particularly festive either, as an unseen poltergeist has been known to wreak havoc on the household during celebrations and events. On the grounds of the mansion, a small structure known as the Carriage House is located. Strange activity reported here by guests means that is no longer used as living quarters, which is generally attributed to a woman who was beaten to death by her chauffeur husband after an argument. Known as ‘Emily’, she appears to intensely dislike men, and has returned to haunt the place she lived in her former life.

  1. One night as I was sleeping in the inn, I felt something like the tingle of electricity then the TV in my room came on by itself. It has happened several times. The tv has since been removed from this room.

  2. My husband and I stayed in the Porch Suite June of 2015. The first night, some time after midnight, I heard the French Door to the porch swing open. I wasn’t concerned, thinking I didn’t close it tightly. The next night I put the door-stop about 5 inches from the door. After midnight again the door swung open, banging against the door-stop. A few minutes later I heard the water dripping in the shower/tub. I’m not sure, but think this room was used by the children and the nanny.

  3. Hearing of the haunted rooms, I wanted to get a taste of a ghostly experience. So I stayed in the porch room, While I was soaking in the tub I felt something touch my toes. I thought that my loofah that had been floating in the water, but no. I look down to see a stream of blood coming from the faucet. Utterly horrified, I screamed and ran out of the bathroom. Wanting to change rooms, or even get a discount, I went downstairs to find the hostess. When passing by the old organ, two notes rang out in the dark. I stopped and felt a sharp shiver of cold tickle my spine. And knew that I was done for. Who would remember me? My parents died in an accident a few years ago and I had no other relatives, no husband, and no kids. The two notes rang out again, signaling the start of a song. To this day I haven’t ever heard the song played. It was beyond ghostly and soft, all in minor and not at all appealing to the ears. I don’t recall anything that happened after that, except that the hostess came around the corner and the organ bench skittered across the floor as if someone was caught in something they were not supposed to do. I never went back.
