Built in 1763, the inn is haunted by a ghost the staff have nicknamed Charlie. The inn is believed to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad and also a boardinghouse that once expelled two students for being Hitler Youths. Witnesses have described cold spots, apparitions turning up in photographs, and poltergeist pranks, but Charlie is known for being a kind and helpful ghost. In one case, the owners wanted to install electrical outlets in the Teaberry room, but found that it would be too expensive. They closed the room for the winter season and when they opened it again, they found an outlet had been installed right where they wanted it. The electricians they had contacted denied having put in the outlet, and the inn never received a bill for the service. Charlie is also believed to be responsible for helping a carpenter with the wood paneling in the entryway and coaxing flowers that had never bloomed before to bloom the day the new owners purchased the inn.
