Wonderful stay
We stayed in the castle over the past weekend for a friend's 40th birthday. Not only was it a wonderful time, but we loved the grounds, the building, and truly managed to have an escape when we thought we wouldn't be able to do so. We're hoping to return at some point in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Enchanting!
We rented the castle for the long Labor Day weekend For Us and our six children’ s families and were very happy with our stay! 14 adults and many grandchildren, ranging from 3 months to 9 years old, and we all loved the amenities, the sleeping arrangements and the incredible views!! We’ve already booked it again for next summer.

5/5 Excellent

Ideal Family Vacation
Our family vacation exceeded all of our expectations. Going in, we had read all of the glowing reviews and so we were apprehensive that the castle could not possible live up to expectations...it absolutely did. The Castle itself is immaculate, spacious and just meticulously maintained. The attention to detail in the decoration of each room really accentuated our enjoyment of the facilities. We had vacationers aged 6 through aged 75 and everyone found their own unique way of enjoying their time. The third floor kids room kept our children occupied (sometimes late at night with trampolining and roughousing). The basement was our go-to spot for competition and fun - spirited games of pool, darts, board games and more. But the best part of the vacation is the lake itself - the hiking trails were a joy, where we spotted salamanders, tons of frogs, turtles (and on two occassions, deer). The lake amenities were superb - the paddle boats, kayaks and paddle boards were put to much good use. I had no expectation that anyone would touch the disc golf course and we ended up playing 3 separate days (and we learned we need lessons on how to throw a frisbee properly). A phenomenal experience overall. The caretakers were very helpful whenever we needed them. I see no reason why we would not return in the future.
