A Haunted History— a Century of Eerie Apparitions. 

A Haunted Past.

Originally build as Lyon Tavern in 1818 just a mile south of the original pioneer settlement in Naples, the Naples Hotel is steeped in history. This historic hotel was featured on season 8 of the Syfy channel’s Ghost Hunters for the hotel’s numerous ghost sightings. Featuring 32 rooms— including guest rooms, a restaurant and a basement bar— the Naples Hotel is perfect for an incredible paranormal weekend.

The Naples Hotel building was built in 1895 and over the years it has accumulated sightings and a reputation for being haunted. One of the most well known spirits that haunt the hotel belongs to a man who killed himself on the third floor and is often seen wandering the hotel. There are also reports of a female ghost named Alice and her two children who are all believed to have died in the hotel during the 1900s.

Resident Ghosts. 

The Hotel is home to a number of spirits, including a ghost known as Topper. Whispers, unexplained movement in artwork, lights flickering, televisions turning on and off, or coat hangers inexplicably dangling from the bathroom ceiling light, all have occurred at this ghostly destination.

They’re just the resident ghosts in its more than a century history. Past manager Domonick Gallo shared reports of apparitions he’s heard over the years— resident ghost Alice sitting in the front dining room while her two ghostly children have been seen peering out the upstairs window. Two men haunting one of the hotel rooms who regularly flicker flashlights. A woman in a room at the front of the hotel filling the space with her lilac scent, a Civil War soldier who was seen descending the basement steps.

A Haunted Tour of the Finger Lakes
There’s something romantic about the Finger Lakes in the Fall. The leaves slowly change from bright green to intense red and orange hues, vineyards are alive with workers harvesting grapes, the roadside farmers markets switch from berries to apples… But there’s something else. Something spookier. The sunny days are replaced by stormy clouds and darker skies. The small cemeteries that dot the back roads of the lakes seem to stand out among the barren trees. The dying leaves rattle in the wind, and the once lovely sunflower fields have become withered stalks.
