BOOTHBAY, Maine (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Living in a haunted house may sound spooky, but for one innkeeper, it’s actually kind of soothing.

Dianne Ward owns the Kenniston Hill Inn in Boothbay, Maine, an old, 10-bedroom, early American-style bed and breakfast that’s thought to be haunted by its past owner, William Kenniston.

Kenniston was murdered there in 1888 by a former employee and it seems his spirit lingers on the property to this day.

Ward knew about the grizzly murder prior to purchasing the inn but loved the house so much, she didn’t care.

The self-professed skeptic lives on the grounds alone but gets a sense of “safety,” like Kenniston is looking out for her.

Ward feels there’s something paranormal there, especially in the old library where Kenniston was stabbed to death.

Her guests feel it too, reporting strange sightings and sensations during their stays.

The B&B is frequented by ghost hunters and will appear on A&E Biography’s My Ghost Story this summer.
