  1. My sister rents there. I stayed over in her room and it had a VERY creepy chill. Turns out it is in the kitchen wing and servants part of the house and her bedroom was literally the cold storage room! I still upvoted this because it is still probably haunted despite my cynicism.


  2. I was conceived in this castle when my dad rented it in his 20s and made a mistake with my mom. Nonetheless, I have spirits that guide me and I owe my soul to Satan. He told me when I was a baby the chandelier would swing above my head and the cat would see strange things and that a lot of unusual unexplainable activity would take place. He may have even been possessed by a spirit in the castle to inseminate my mother so that I may be born to fulfill the unfinished business of the departed. Nice place too

  3. I rented thier as well no ghosts! It’s cold of course it’s very old it’s going to be cold I never saw or felt anything unusual except from the owner

  4. My mother and father rented their first apartment within this home in 1969. Since I was a child my mom has been telling me odd stories about this place. I asked her yesterday for the exact address and it indeed was this house. She said she sometimes heard breathing within the walls. There are other creepy incidents but she can’t remember any more. There was something to do with footprints in the snow but she can’t remember any further details beyond the fact that there shouldn’t have been. I generally don’t believe in ghosts but since my mom has been telling me this for almost 40 years it sticks with me. I think it may indeed be haunted.
