A little history about Lake House

Originally, the government granted the land where Lake House currently stands to Colonel J. Butler for his contribution to the war. The Moyer family purchased the property in 1862 and built what is now known as Lake House Restaurant in 1867. Much of the natural charm of the house has been maintained with all of its original woodwork, exposed brick and fireplaces still intact. A beautiful sunroom has been added onto the house, overlooking the lake.


Lake House was said to have been one of the first stops for the ‘Underground Railway’ for slaves escaping from the United States to Canada. The slaves were fed and hidden here until they could be sent to safer areas.


Lake House is also reputed to be the home of two ghosts, a young girl named Elizabeth and a gentleman thought to be an old sea sailor, known to be ‘The Captain”. Both ghosts are friendly!
