This was a magical experience.. I was traveling alone and after dark and the innkeeper Rich was so kind and accommodating, helping me with parking, finding a restaurant that delivered to the castle and showing me the grand old library and drawing room and telling me stories of the history of this gilded age castle. My room was cozy and comfortable and next morning I sat in the deep recessed window seat and watched the sun come up over the mountains. A lavish continental breakfast was beautifully laid out and I sat with my coffee and talked a while with Rich. Then I took a walk around the gardens, came in for a hot cup of tea to warm my hands and reluctantly said goodbye. I will never forget this place. What a treasure.

I got married at this location 11 years ago and wanted to return to the place to celebrate our anniversary. I do know if perhaps we received special treatment on our wedding day as the bride and groom but I don’t recall having so many issues with the property. They are not equipped to run a bed and breakfast. For starters I was not given any information about the location during check in. No info about where to eat or what to do or how to get in and out of the castle. I had to ask how we would enter the property late at night, luckily I did because they lock the doors and you need to text the innkeeper to enter the manor. The grounds are literally pitch dark and we needed to park in a lot aprox 1 city block away. We had to use our flashlights on our phone to make it back, it was extremely difficult. The sink in our room was clogged and you could visibly see the lumps of hair stuck in the drain. Because the castle is old it takes over 15 mins to get luke warm water in your room. Amenities are EXTREMELY limited, the most you can get is very very watered down coffee or tea. Room service is also very limited. When We asked for a bottle of water they didn’t have any. I think the only thing you can get is watered coffee. Would not recommend staying there!

Rich the manor keeper made such a wonderful host. We was able to tour the castle rooms and get photos that will last a lifetime. Breakfast which is included was superb.our room had a beautiful view of the gardens and the price was affordable. I can’t wait to go back.

Obviously the building is a historical one And this is not equipped with many modern amenities but being aware of that fact before booking it was not deterred by it. The room was clean, as were the shar d bathroom facilities I encountered. The building is beautiful, the grounds even more so, and I was amazed that customers had as much free reign as they do.
