The Baldpate Inn

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  The Baldpate Inn

Built in 1917 by Gordon and Ethel Mace, the place stayed in the family until 1986. Folks say Ethel and Gordon weren’t ready to part with it, though. Ethel’s ghost sits in a wing-back rocking chair near a fireplace with her feet up, reading the Bible, in an old storage room. The pair don’t like smoking or drinking, so guests here find that their cigarette packs are missing or their cigarettes won’t stay lit, and drinks often spill or fly off the tables.
