If you are one of those thrill seekers who are interested in ghosts , hauntings & paranormal activity, the Chateau may provide some enjoyment for you ! The main house was built in the early 1940's and originally was a small single family Cape cod built & occupied by Arthur S. Carlson , who was a local painting & decorating contractor . During the later part of the house's history , the basement was used as a daycare center for a short period of time . After the passing of Mr. & Mrs. Carlson , the estate was purchased by us in April 1979 . Shortly after moving my family in , I began renovating & remodeling the basement . Apparently the Resident ghost or ghosts did not like being disturbed by the construction taking place ! Strange things started to happen , my daughter had stacked some blocks of wood from cuttings & that night a crashing noise was heard in the basement; Upon investigating ,the blocks had been knocked violently over and were scattered across the room ! Shortly after we were awoken by a loud scraping sound like a rake being dragged across the basement floor ; There was a rake and had been displaced ! It seemed that the ghost or ghosts were unhappy with us as new owners & continued to make their presence known , and not in a good way ! I believe the proper term is Polderguese ! This ghost was very active & violent showing it's displeasure ! I have been mentioning the possibility of multiple ghosts ; Because upon rummaging through the attic , I discovered many pairs of young children's shoes, stuffed into a suitcase , in the attic ! I thought this to be very strange , since I knew the Carlsons only had one daughter ; Yet there were multiple pairs of both boys & girls shoes ! Could this daycare be responsible ? Why were all those pairs of shoes there ? But to get back to the subject of what I referred to as as Carlson's ghost ; when the construction & renovation stopped , so to did the paranormal activity ! However upon embarking upon our extensive expansion in 2005 , the disturbances have again brought on more activity , whereas a couple months into my 2017 basement bathroom remodel ,this spring, things began flying around & crashing upon the basement floor again ! Operating as a bed & breakfast we have again disturbed the polderguese ; whereas at times, when the building is unoccupied , I can hear footsteps in various locations within the main house ; And upon investigating , there is nobody there ! We have not mentioned this activity to our guests , because we did not want to cause them concern ; However I am now inviting anyone with an interest in paranormal activity & hauntings to Come Visit with us ! You just may encounter Carlson's Ghost or daycare children who met their demise in this basement ! Spooky !
