We stayed with Pat and Maugie at T'Frere's this year for our third time in three years! It is absolutely the BEST place to stay!! We love Pat and Maugie, and the house and breakfasts are fantastic!
Our first year we experienced the ghost, and that was the first time we heard about a ghost being there...when we told them what had happened!
My husband was preparing to enter the private bathroom to take a shower. He tried the door knob and found the room locked. We could hear water running in the shower. We thought that was strange, because we were told it was a private bath. We tried the knob a few minutes later...still locked. About ten minutes later, my husband check and found the door ajar. He went in and, upon checking, found the bath tub totally dry! No sign of anyone taking a shower...no wet towels, wet soap, nothing!
When we shared our story with Pat and Maugie, they then told us about the ghost!
What fun! We couldn't wait till the next year to stay. So, while we were there the second year, we were sitting in the living room, and my husband was reading a magazine and I was talking to a friend on the phone. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a heavy book shoot out from the bottom shelf of an end table and land several feet away! My husband said, "Did you see THAT?!?" I told him I did! We tried several times to place the book back on the stack, and knock it off, to see if maybe it just fell off by itself, but no way could we get it to land as far away as it did! It was the ghost again!!
Nothing happened this year, though, but that's okay. We'll be back next year to check things out! We missed her antics this year!
