How about the caves that the family hung out in and Charlie used as a bolt hole?

Yeah, it does. I'm trying to think of an older analogous murder scene that people visit but am failing. Maybe like the top of a Meso-American pyramid where they sacrificed people?
I think the whole idea of a house being "haunted" is internalizing the knowledge that something bad happened there a long time ago. It's an acknowledgement that the acts carry some weight long after the deed is done and all the participants are dead. If you thought you were just in a random B&B I doubt you'd feel any creepiness at all (other than from the interior decorating, blech). So time does change it in some ways but also doesn't in other ways.
