People often ask me if Brackett House is haunted. This is the only strange thing I’ve caught on camera. And honestly, if there are spirits here, everyone loves this house and enjoys staying here so much, they must be happy about that!
Happy Halloween!!🎃

We have always been open, but things have changed a bit. Texted info., keyless entry and prepackaged breakfasts are our way of keeping you safe.
