The ghost is believed to be that of Dr. William Jacocks, who lived at the Inn for nearly 20 years.
Guests who stay in some of the second-floor rooms that were once the home of Dr. Jacocks often find themselves locked out. (the Inn was renovated in 1990 and Dr. Jacocks' living quarters became part of several rooms) This ghost likes to play tricks on guests, and enjoys making it difficult for them to gain entry into their rooms. Apparently one room's door had to be removed from its hinges because it wouldn't budge. Today, some electronic door locks will not work properly. Is it due to Dr. Jacocks and his playful ways? Could be! Paranormal researchers have collected video and audio of ghostly happenings in this hotel, including piano notes, softly spoken words, and an orb-like object floating in the air.
