    1. I live nearby this mansion and from time to time you see people that look like they are rich old folk in the window. Once I saw some people outside and i kept staring at them until they disappeared

      I have shard here with my family several times. It is haunted. I heard someone walking upstairs in the caretaker/owner’s apartment and was surprised to see the caretaker stayed downstairs the next morning in a 1st floor bedroom. The owner is a wonderful host and has many interesting stories about the place. She has put a lot of work into the place. It is very clean and very comfortable place. I have never regretted staying there. Very affordable, the surrounding town with wineries, antique shops. The Belterra Casino is only 3-4 miles away and they will shuttle you there. Like I said it is haunted, but the owner says they are protectors and I believe that. Try it, you won’t regret it. My husband and I found it on a weekend motorcycle trip and we have been going for 8-10 years now.

    3. My wife and I stayed there overnight about seven years ago. I can’t say with certainty that the two things that happened were haunted or perhaps just coincidental. I was having an art show at one of the galleries in Vevay so that’s why my wife and I made arrangements to stay at the mansion. It was beautiful and we had a wonderful breakfast made for us the following morning. But now to the issue of whether it’s haunted. After the opening, my wife and I were heading back to the mansion around 10:00 PM. As we were approaching the porch or entrance I joked that I saw a ghost up in a window. I did not see one, but the second I finished saying that a big crack was heard and a bunch of snow came tumbling down off the roof between us and the entrance we were approaching. The next day I was heading up some stairs to what I believe was the second level. At the top of the stairs there was a screen door (if I recall correctly) that went outside to a porch or landing of some sort. Anyway, as I went up those stairs I saw that screen door open and close. I got to the top and there was nobody on that landing. My thought was either a draft of wind simply pulled it open and it closed or the other option was something haunted. Regardless, we had a great time staying and have always wanted to go back.
