Trivia

The movie was filmed at the historic Proctor Mansion Inn located in Wrentham, MA. While the real inn does not have a ghost story, there is a mystery surrounding the inn. Throughout the grounds, there are several references to "Carl BFC 1861". The inn was constructed in 1861, but there is no record of anyone named Carl working on the house. The meaning behind the letters "BFC" also remain a mystery. See more »

Goofs

At the very beginning of the movie, Daniel looks at his pocket watch. The maker of the watch shows Charles-Hubert, Paris. That watch brand was started in 1990 and couldn't be in the time period Daniel was in at that point in the movie. See more »

Better than average and unique Christmas ghost story
6 January 2016 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

I actually really enjoyed this. It's well done as far as made-for-TV Christmas movies go, with a unique story and decent mystery attached.

It also wasn't as corny or cliché as most holiday themed movies tend to be and I wasn't ever sure how the story was going to play out especially in regards to the happily-ever-after. The acting and sets were very good too, including real snow, as I've seen some Xmas movies which were obviously filmed mid summer.

The story follows Kate, a lawyer who travels to Vermont to broker the sale of an inn and learns that the reason it won't sell is because it's haunted by a man who cannot move on until the mystery of his death (95 years ago) is solved.

I have to admit one of the reasons I enjoyed this as much as I did was down to Thomas Beaudoin who plays the ghost. I've never seen him in anything before but he was excellent. Decent acting and super good looking. He really pulled off a man from the turn of the century.

Daniel as our ghost only appears 12 days each year and then disappears back into his static between world again. He is grumpy and perpetually hungry for his 12 days at the inn, wanting just to be left alone. Despite Kate finds herself drawn to the ill-tempered spirit, determined to help him and they soon find themselves in an unlikely time crossed romance. 12/23/15
