GENEVA, N.Y. (WHEC) — Belhurst Castle in Geneva may well be haunted, but it isn't the most haunted hotel in America.

The landmark had been in the running for a USA Today10 Best Reader's Choice award for being the best haunted hotel in the U.S., but while it did make the top 10, it didn't win. Instead, it came in 6th. 


The Mizpah Hotel in Tonopah, Nevada took the top spot on the list.

The contest said Belhurst has a well-known ghost named Isabella, an opera singer who died in a collapsing tunnel. She's often spotted wearing white while walking the shores of Seneca Lake or standing in the front lawn at night.
