My two traveling buddies and I were on a ghost tour of New England and decided to stay at the Whistler's Inn due to its history and location. It couldn't have been a more enjoyable time. We stayed in the Santa Fe room which was spacious and comfortable. Sitting for hours in the library reading (the sherry was a nice touch) and the music room was so relaxing. The host, Lisa, is simply enchanting with so many fascinating experiences around the world. Her company alone is worth the visit. The owner, Richard is a author of note and a fascinating guy to talk to over breakfast (which was so much better than previous reviews prepared me for).
As for haunted, I expected to only go to a place that OTHERS claimed was haunted, but ending up having a bit of an experience myself. Don't worry if this is not what you are looking for, however. In my experience, you really only see things if you are looking for them (other families were there, and none of their kids look petrified).
All in all, I can't imagine having picked a better place.
