This upstate New York lake, 5 miles north of Fourth Lake in the Adirondacks, is known by some as the site where Grace Brown’s spirit resides. Grace was allegedly murdered by Chester Gillette in a cabin, and her apparition has been seen around and inside Covewood Lodge. She has also been seeing drowning in the lake; as well, her face has been seen in the waters. Not surprisingly, those who have seen her report having a feeling of wet chills.

    1. Incorrect; Grace was drowned in Punky Bay after being struck in the head by Chester Gillette. Chester was convicted of her murder and was electrocuted in 1908.

      Get your facts straight; they are well documented.
