The Island Hotel and Restaurant on Cedar Key continues to attract famous people, just as it did in the 1940s and 1950s, when notables such as Tennessee Ernie Ford, Myrna Loy, Pearl Buck, and Richard Boone basked in the beauty of Cedar Key’s tropical surroundings. According to paranormal investigators, however, the most interesting guests are the ones who remain at the hotel long after their allotted time on earth has passed. From the perspective of a lover of the paranormal, the presence of ghosts in the Island Hotel and Restaurant more than makes up for the absence of amenities such as telephones and television.
