During our weekend getaway to castle unicorn we were greeted by three elves. They showed us to our room that was adorned with 14 unicorn statues representing the strength of our love. Our first day was filled with limitless rainbows and free unicorn rides. We would recommend this experience to all of our friends. -Chester and Azalea P.s. The unipeg... More

Castle Unicorn is amazing! They do all the set up and take down. My day was stress free and everything was perfect. We had more guests than we expected and the Castle was very fast to accommodate. Not only did they pull chairs out for our guests but they also accommodated in food. Everyone that attended our wedding loved everything... More

The setting is amazing, there is no doubt about that, but you definitely pay more than you imagined or bargained for with dry flavorless food, broken promises. If you are the bride and groom looking you need to keep looking. If you like the area check something else out. For a 200 person guest count they conveniently forget to tell... More

I attended a May wedding there recently; it was a lovely setting and a beautiful property. Wish I could have caught a view from the observation deck, but that was locked.

We recently attended a wedding here. The ceremony was lovely, as was the setting, and the couple had made a point of saying families with children were welcome. It soon became clear, however, that Ray, who I believe is the proprietor, does not welcome children on the property. At the informal reception, when a group of kids started a harmless... More

We welcome feedback from all of our guests that have the opportunity to experience a wedding reception at Castle Unicorn. The manicured grounds and ponds feature many varieties of ornamental trees, flowers and aquatic plants as well as koi fish and several varieties of native frogs...........a real attraction for youngsters. These plant and animal species coupled with the water fountains... More

I just want to say that the hosts, especially John, made my Wife and My 40th Anniversary a very special stay. We had some special arrangements we wanted that were prepared and arranged just as requested. We would recommend Castle Unicorn for any special occasion. Just let them know what you want and it will be provided. We want to... More

Be VERY judicious in choosing this place as a wedding venue. We had a wedding here this past June and while generally pleased, overall we felt terribly overcharged for the food which was of VERY poor quality. Additionally the service was tacky and substandard. We wanted our own caterer and was informed they have their preferred vendor whom we had... More

We replaced the caterer referenced towards the end of our last wedding season. Unfortunately this was a newer catering company that we entrusted and they did not live up to our expectations either. We now offer several well established caterers with many years of experience and great reputations for the high quality of their food and we are very excited... More

We had our dream wedding planned for this place and if it were up to the two owners, it would never have happened. It started when they called and told us before we booked a caterer for 350 people to give them a look and see what they had to offer - since they didn't have a food manager when... More

Regardless of frustrations related to the catering concerns, our contract clearly states at... More

I made our reservation to celebrate my 16 year old's birthday. He loves fencing and we thought this "castle" would be just the thing. Strange "stuck in the 80s" decor. Dust so thick on the furniture we could write our name in it. Broken down mattress. Torn decor pillows. One foot high step up to toilet. Dusty, uncovered plastic drinking... More
