Default Old rock staircase to nowhere

I heard of this old rock staircase in the woods near the Connecticut river in New Hampshire. It is what’s left after a house fire decades ago. A once upon time mansion of a Madam Sherri.
The b & w photo is what it used to look like.

I guess that the stone stepped walkway at the left of the second image, not visible in the B&W version because they are hidden by the landscaping, led up to the front door and the curved wall with arches in it is the ruin of the curved staircase leading to the second-floor side entrance.

The black-and-white image has some peculiarities in it, such as what looks like a transparent female figure in white in the foreground front of the tree trunk on the far left and a blurred passageway from the right and leading to the first-floor porch, passing through the curved staircase. I suspect that this image might be a double exposure.

Or a picture of a framed photograph. Just above the middle bay window, I see what looks to me like a camera lens with two hands holding a camera on either side.

There is reflection of me taking a photo of the b&w pic. That photo was there under plexiglass on a sign post near the ruins.

I am going back in the fall to take more photos of the estate grounds. It’s like an enchanted forest.
