Bela Szigethy

Owner

Bela has been swimming in Lake Hopatcong since he’s been two.  Not continually, but off and on.  Today he still loves swimming, skiing, kayaking, sailing, paddle boarding, boating and, most recently, water bicycling on the biggest lake in the Garden State.  And afterwards having a beer at Alice’s or the Windlass and watching the sunset.  He’s one of our biggest fans.

Alice Szigethy

Owner/Manager

Alice spent many childhood evenings pretending to own a restaurant.  She served her patient family delicacies such as ‘Canned Fruit’ and ‘Saltines with Butter’.  Thankfully Alice’s concept of fine dining has evolved.  A career hospitality professional, Alice started out as a shallot peeler in the basement of a NYC restaurant  and worked her way through an array of positions in restaurants and hotels in New York City.  In the early 90's she left the restaurant business and entered the 9-5 world.  One marriage and two children later things have changed.  Alice now works behind the scenes to oversee concepts, marketing, capital improvement projects and standardizing the businesses with regard general operations, policies and procedures.  A part-time resident of Lake Hopatcong – she tries to dabble in a variety of hobbies such as nature photography and family care.  Alice is grateful to all who dedicate their heart, souls and talent to the corporate mission.

"How I got here. We must start at the beginning, back when I was a kid sailing with my father. The thrill was breathtaking. The wind in my sails blew me into bigger, faster, competitive racing boats that we sailed in many different cities and islands. On the professional side I always had a fun job, from computer technician in the city to home contractor in NJ. After completing my master captain’s license I saw myself behind the wheel of a large boat. Then in 2014, along came Miss Lotta. The first restaurant boat to sail on Lake Hopatcong. It didn’t take long to find myself in the pilot house. And what a great year it was, At the end of the season Camp Six was looking for a new property manager. And there you have it."
