However, all is not as it seems because The Lighthouse Inn is also offers some of the most haunted accommodation in Connecticut! There are several rooms in the property that are said to be haunted with the two most well known ghosts being a couple of Victorian ladies each with their own tragic tale to tell.
The first of these female entities is said to be a young bride who died tragically at the hotel on her wedding day. As the story goes, she was coming downstairs dressed in her wedding gown when she slipped and broke her neck in the fall. Guests often report seeing the bride, still in her gown as she roams the halls. She has been seen in many of the guest rooms and on occasion she can be found sitting quietly in a corner reading a book!
