Vermont Lake Champlain Haunted 1850's Farmhouse

by Jo-Anne M Peacock
(Shaftsbury, VT, USA)

Bedrooms: 5 Bathrooms: 2 Floors:3.0
Square Footage: 2300
Year Built: 1850
School District: Grand Isle
Garage Size:2.5
Lot Size:1 Acre(s)
Amenities: Wood Floors, Basement, Bonus/Great Room, Covered Parking, Deck/Porch, Garage, Office/Den, View

1850's Historic Farmhouse with nice easterly view of Lake Champlain's Inland Sea - one of North America's best bass fishing locations, and the Green Mountains (Mt Mansfield, Camel's Hump, Jay Peak).

Lake access approximately 150' away via public boat launch. Great fishing, great water quality. Beautiful sunset views, bordered by land trust property. Perennial gardens, nice yard, all in need of TLC. All utilities in place: septic, town water, electricity, telephone lines, driveway.

The attic is as big as the footprint of the house, and easily could be an extra living space or another set of living quarters. This historical house has survived both of Lake Champlain's historical floods of 1859 and 2011. It sits on a high and dry piece of land!

We have had the Vermont Spirit Detectives visit this house numerous times, and every time very successful with friendly findings of children, men and women's voices, foot steps and noises. (Go to their website and you can experience sessions held in this house as they are posted)

We are not sure, but the Underground Railroad may have been part of this house's history. This house remained in the McBride/Durham family until approximately 30 years ago. These people are who we believe we have had contact with. This would make a GREAT B&B!

This home REALLY is haunted
by: Vermont Spirits Detective Agency

This is Gloria from Vermont Spirits Detective Agency - http://vtspirits.com/, and I can assure you that this Lake Champlain farmhouse is haunted. Click on our Investigations page http://vtspirits.com/paranormal-investigations.html and look down the list for all the times we've investigated this home and detected EVPs, in addition to disembodied voices. Our latest EVP is in response to a question (not posted on our website yet as of 9/19/11. See it on youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1eD5i_1eoA4

This house is solid, not creaky as you expect from such an old home, but it is in need of repair and remodelling. You can't beat the views of Lake Champlain and the idyllic feel of the islands. And you'll have this family who's selling this home as great neighbors to boot.
