It is rumoured that the haunting started happening in the Beaumont House Inn in 2001. As is so often the case, the new owners started to make renovations to the house. On one particular night, one of the owners’ parents came over from Europe to spend a couple of nights in her son and daughters new establishment. Not much is known about what the woman experienced, but she reported strange activity in her room during her stay.
Another incident was when a housekeeper was painting when she felt some pressure on her hip. Thinking that it was one of the owners who went in and out of the inn, she thought of moving to the other side, but terrifyingly, an unseen force held her there for a few seconds.
Strange male voices have often been heard in the common room, although there is no one there or even when no one is speaking. The current owners and the staff of the hotel believe that the ghosts are there because they love the place so much, and that they stay to protect the inn and not to harm the guests.
The Beal House Inn was originally built as a farmhouse in 1883; however, Mrs. Beal turned it into an inn in 1933. Over the years, the inn has had many owners but it continues to offer guests a traditional New England welcome and hospitality. It was renovated extensively during the past 5 years and it has been given a facelift by the current owners. It now combines classic elegance with modern comforts.
The Beal House Inn offers guests rooms with a variety of styles and looks. The inn has 4 two-room suites and 3 guest rooms which all come with en-suite bathrooms; the Back Lavender Suite, Flume Suite, Rose Chamber, Blue Room, Washington Room, Mrs. Beal’s Room and Garden Room suite. The inn has been given a diamond rating by AAA.
The Beal House Inn also has a 3-star restaurant rating. Dining at the inn is a gustatory experience which should not be missed.
