Punderson Manor

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Punderson Manor

It is alleged that the original owner of Punderson manor committed suicide by drifting out on the lake in a bathtub, and then, when he reached the middle, he pulled the plug and drowned. Why precisely he would have chosen this method is not known, whether it actually occurred like this is unknown, but this is the claim. Punderson reportedly has any number of ghostly occurrences, from a variety of ghosts but the most famous of the stories is one that took place in the dining room in the late 70’s, where people claim that for a period of approximately three hours late one night, the ghost of a man who appeared to be a lumberjack seemed to hang from the rafters. Apparently the apparition vanished with the sunrise, but several employees claim they witnessed it. People have also reported seeing a man in grey, felt cold spots and other unexplained sounds.

  1. I used to be with a paranormal group and we did an investigation at Punderson Manor in 2005 I believe. We had several personal experiences and caught a few clear EVP’s at this location. There were a few stories that we were told by some of the staff, such as a fire that occurred in the attic in the 1900’s that killed a father and two little girls. There was another story that was told to us about a party boat that was out on the lake one night and it sank and several people died. The story that we were told about the original builder was that he hung himself in his office.
    The most memorable person experience that occurred happened with myself and two other members. We were allowed to spend the night in their main suite because of the activity that had been reported. There was a king size bed and I we all three decided to share the bed. As we settled in after our investigation we were looking forward to a few hours of sleep before morning, we heard a loud noise that seemed to come from behind the wall. It sounded like heavy furniture being dragged across a hard wood floor. Mind you it was about 4 am. We all sprung up and scrambled for the recorders to try to catch the sound. Upon reporting it to the front desk, they promptly took us back upstairs to show us that there was nothing on the other side of that wall that anyone had access to. They showed us a bricked off wall where there had been a small storage room that was sealed up with the place was renovated. We searched and searched for almost an hour trying to debunk the sealed off room and could not find one. This was one of the oddest things that has ever occurred to me on an investigation.
    There was also a very strange EVP that we caught up in the attic. It was a very deep male voice that seemed to say the words.. “God. Block the doorway.” While we were running investigation in the attic, we also could hear the sound of what sounded like a ball bouncing in a small storage room at the end of the hall. We could also hear what sounded like small footsteps and soft movement. Every time we went toward the room, we would get about halfway down the hall and everything would go silent. We repeated this process several times trying to catch what we were hearing. And it happened most of the attempts. We checked the room in detail at the end of the hall and could find nothing that could make the noises and sounds that we heard.
    I have been investigating the paranormal for over a decade now and in my opinion Punderson is haunted. I just recently founded a new paranormal group and Punderson is in the top 5 to visit.

  3. Stayed this summer for a night in the newer addition of the manor. There was a spooky full moon that night and I had to sleep with the TV on. The oddity of my stay was in the hallway outside my room door there were doors that were opening and closing but no one to be seen. I was even outside on the stairwell briefly and heard the same noises in the hallway, looked through the window in the hallway and there was no one there. Very surreal feeling. Cool place but certainly haunted.
