The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  The Quechee Inn at Marshland Farm

Built as a private home by Joseph Marsh IV in 1793, the historic inn and farm was purchased by John Porter in 1845. He and his wife Jane lived there until they passed, John in 1886 and Jane in 1900. Jane Porter’s ghost is said to reside in the inn. In Rooms 1-6, which used to be Jane’s parlor and study, witnesses have heard noises and footsteps in these rooms when they are vacant. In Room 9, guests have reported footsteps walking on the floor above them, although there is only storage area there. Her apparition has been seen coming from the dining room into the main hallway; her presence has been felt in the dining area as well. Unexplained whistling has been heard in the bar area. Another spirit thought to dwell here is young Patrick Marsh, who hides guests’ belongings and returns them later. He also is blamed for tinkering with the TVs and lights.

    Last year I had a good friend who tended bar here. While sitting in a cozy chair in the bar area, my cell phone was thrown from the table to the floor, twice! I’m careful to keep my phone away from the edges of tables so that wasn’t it. And, the table was to my left and the phone landed in front of me. I kept it in my pocket after that!

  2. Stayed there last night with my two kids alone on way back to CT from Stowe in bad weather. Our room was first right, top of stairs. Entire house quiet and guests in bed by 11. At around 2a clearly a mans tone whistling but not in the house yet at the same time it was almost inside. Peaceful and friendly but clearly a presence making itself known. It would go off/on and I kept listening for footsteps or maybe someone outside but there were no lights or any other sounds/movement. I never slept a wink.
