Hi, yes it is true; the Vineyard house is owned by a single family and is not open to the public. I live about 10 minutes from the Vineyard house and I have been been inside several times. I don't know if it is haunted, but the house is fascinating and it is greatly under-valued considering it's vast historical value to the state of California. Not too long ago, I found a manuscript at the El Dorado County library which was written by Martin Allhoff Jr. His father was the original owner of the property and he started the winery which is now in ruins behind the house. Martin Jr. is the son of the now infamous "Louisa" who is said to haunt the current structure. Martin Sr. died under suspicious circumstances delivering wine to Virginia City in 1867. His widow, "Louisa" married a prominent hotel owner in Coloma named Robert Chalmers who soon built the house which stands today. I've included the manuscript by Allhoff Jr. on my webpage...
