My husband and I stayed at the newbury house last weekend. We were drawn there by the haunted nature of the property. What we found was amazing.
We too arrived after dark but had no problems finding the visitors center or the b & b as they were well lit.
Once we got our keys we let ourselves in and instantly felt very comfortable like we had come home. We stayed in the Sarah Walton room. While very small, it was quite comfortable. The bathroom while small was very adequate and clean.
We loved the fact of no tv and very little phone service. We truly were able to enjoy each other and the quite away from the husstle and bustle of everyday life.
We hated to leave and are already planning our next visit.
As for haunted? I would say definitely yes, but you will have to check that out for yourself!
