Family Gathering

Posted Jun 28, 2017
Thanks to Henderson Castle for the extras that made my daughter's Graduation weekend such a treat. Dinner Friday night was great, with the chef making a special vegan entree and dessert for our graduate. Our room in the cottage offered privacy and quiet. The bar let us have our drinks on the porch on a beautiful summer evening. Breakfast both mornings were delicious. It's always a pleasure to come back to the beautiful Henderson Castle.

Disappointing and disrespectful

Extremely disappointing. Listing misrepresented amenities and they would not refund even though I had just made the reservation an hour before I arrived.

Excellent food but place needs upgraded

Posted Mar 5, 2017
The castle is in need of major upgrades in the esthetic value . The room we stayed in was quite cold with poor heating. The bed is not comfortable with worn out bed linens that were thin. I developed my allergies in lieu of dust buildup with the accreutiments of historical value displayed all over the room . But the food prepared by Chef Moyet was excellent !

Romantic Getaway

It was pretty busy due to Valentines Day. There were 2x the planned bookings so the place was understaffed. Servers were great. Very clean Good food

False advertising

Posted Nov 13, 2016
The website leads you to expect a room in the castle. We were in a house across the street. Not convenient to any facilities and basically just like visiting my grandparent's farmhouse as a kid. Also no way to control room temp. We roasted. Management in the Castle was very disorganized. No one seemed to have answers. BUT-the food at dinner was amazing. Eat? Yes. Stay? No.

Disappointing considering the price and hype

Posted Oct 16, 2016 on Hotels
I've heard such great things about the Henderson Inn, but unfortunately our stay did not meet expectations, especially considering the price. First, we were given a different room than the one we booked. When I pointed out the discrepancy in the original receipt, the person at the desk did not apologize and refused to put us in the room we booked. The employees overall were rather unhelpful and seemed very impatient/disorganized. We also did not realize when booking that the room we were assigned was in the guest house, which is a bit of a hike from the castle itself. The room was cozy and had plenty of character, but was not very clean. One of the lamps next to the bed was unplugged when we arrived, and when venturing under the bed to plug it in, we discovered the floors were incredibly dusty. And although the room was equipped with a Keurig machine, there was no caffeinated coffee provided. While cereal and fruit was available for breakfast, the fruit was far past ripe. Finally, after checking out, I realized I had left a pair of pants hanging in our room. When I called to see if we could come pick them up, I was put on hold for several minutes and told they had to wait until the room was cleaned (I guess it wasn't possible to just go look?). Anyway, because of the private wedding, I was told I couldn't re-enter the inn, so I had to wait outside for someone to bring me the pants, and the staff failed to return the hanger. Overall, not a great experience for the price.

Great experience, even with the ghosts.

The building is magical and just like stepping back in time. I HIGHLY recommend that you give it a try. I only had 1 disappointment. When I booked the room it came with breakfast, which I got up early for. When I got downstairs the entire place was empty and not a soul to be found. I waited around for awhile, but nobody showed up so I just left. I was looking forward to it. Bummer. On a side note, I do believe that the place is haunted as I sensed 2 visitations throughout the night and awakened by nightmares. DON'T let this keep you from staying here, if anything it's adds to the experience. I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

Not really what I was expecting, but ok.

Posted Oct 9, 2016
First, I didn't know that I would be staying in a smaller house across the street. It was nice but the bathroom was really small. In the middle of the night the toilet started making a loud bubbling noise and started to smell like sewer. The fixed it immediately upon letting know. You have to walk back to the main house for breakfast in the morning. It was very slow service, but it was delicious.
