Several ghosts are said to be in residence at this cottage built in 1692, and one is the builder, Philip Knight. Another is Rebecca Towne, who wears a blue dress and floats through the dining room. Captain Henry Quiver died here in the 1850s, and was said to join the other spirits.
Another witness reports seeing a shrieking shadow that complained of being cold in the voice of a young boy. Note: This b&b may no longer be in operation.
