  1. tHE GHOST NAME WAS VINCENT NOT VICTOR. MY DAD OWED THIS BAR AND RESTAURANT BACK IN 1989-1991. i MANAGED IT FOR A YEAR AND WAS THERE NIGHT AND DAY. IT IS DEFINITELY HAUNTED. LOTS OF STORIES I COULD TELL BUT I DON’T HAVE TIME RIGHT NOW. I DID WATCH A CLOCK RUN BACKWARDS. ONE WEIRD THING.

    • Hello,
      My friend and I are doing a project about Iona Lake for school and we were wondering if you could give us any more information. If you get the chance let me know. You can email me at emb113@yahoo.com Thanks!

      I am a History Professor at Seton Hall University, and I am writing a book about a criminal incident that occurred in 1928. One source mentions the Iona Hotel in Gloucester County. Was the Lake House originally called the Iona Hotel? Were William Berger and Clarence Miller proprietors of that Hotel during that time period? I plan to contact the Lake House directly as well, but I assume that since your family owned the establishment, you might have some information regarding its early history. I would appreciate any information you might be able to provide for me. Thank You. M. Gialanella, D.Litt.

      • Dr. Gialanella –

        My family is the current owners of the Inn – now Lake House Restaurant – It was originally called the Iona Lake Hotel (we have a copy of an old photograph that shows signs reading “Iona Lake Hotel”

        • Hi,
          Stanislaus and Laura Samselski owned the Inn at least from the 50’s to the 80’s. Their son, Lou owned it for sometime. I can confirm there was a bar in the basement. However, it was to serve the folks that were using the beach at the inn.

          • Romelll  |  

            I do not know of any ghosts as they never mentioned anything odd. Stanislaus did pass away at the Inn @1983ish.

      • Dr. Gialanella, I would say it is safe to say it is the same location. It is located on Iona Lake. The hotel was built from local timber from the mill across the street (long gone) and was a popular destination in the 20’s and 30’s.

  2. May I please have permission to investigate this location? I’m a local and I would like to find out if I could document evidence of paranormal activity on the premises. Please, email me at agresko4@gmail.com . I hope that I hear from you.
