    This cottage's previous owner loved the home so much she couldn't leave. "Marcelena" occupied it for 65 years and stayed after her death. She has been seen sitting in her favorite chair near the window in the master bedroom, according to current owner Leigh Hay-Martin, and moving it when it isn't in the right place. Martin suspects that Marcelena's ghost departed after a recent renovation, but that may be for guests to decide.
