My husband and I received a gift certificate here for a room of our choice and the murder mystery dinner. We choose John's Cabin, since it is the most expensive. After staying here, we are so glad we did not pay for it out of our own pocket. B&B Pros & Cons: Pros: Staff was friendly. Food was okay, but... More

We were not warned when we booked that the room was not in the castle. We stayed in a cabin called Curry. If you are claustrophobic never ask for this cabin. The nice thing I have to say is that it is impeccably clean. The bed space and shower are up the stairs. The stairs are basically a narrow ladder.... More

Spicer Castle Inn is located on Green Lake in Spicer Minnesota. We stayed in Raymond's Cabin. The cabin is very rustic and was built in the early 1900's. The bedroom is up in the loft and was very comfortable. The views are incredible at the cabin. Spicer castle offers a wonderful breakfast that is brought to you in the dining... More

I had seen photos online before booking and had some idea of what to expect. I did notice the bathroom shower was pretty crummy, but assumed it would be repaired by our visit (about 2 months away). 

It was not. It’s not “rustic”, it’s just garbage and should be replaced. Plan on not showering or using the jacuzzi tub (which... More

We enjoyed our stay in Eunice's room. Allen and the staff were all very welcoming. We were treated like guests in their home. The stay was very relaxing and quiet. All of the meals were excellent! To pass the time, bring a book, bicycle, or fishing pole. The historical home was not in perfect condition, but we enjoyed our stay... More

Stayed in Raymonds Cabin (one of two that allows dogs, which we had). Very rustic, and just a step up from camping... however, it was just what we expected and were looking for. Breakfast was AMAZING and all the staff were very pleasant. Nice touches like weekend happy hour and cookies in the lobby make your stay comfortable. As others... More

We spent one night here in Christopher's room. Very sweet but very small. Luckily we are smaller people. If you are over 6 foot pick another room. The full breakfast was amazing...don't miss it. Plus the grandson to John Spicer the founder of Spicer, MN give a 15 min talk on the Spicer family...very informative and special.

We have been wanting to stay here and were disappointed. Neat old house needs paint and cement work. Cleaning staff great but the woman office staff didn't even say hello (actually turn her back on us). Did not feel welcome. Nice breakfast but it was the same both days. Chef was wearing old camo clothing - not very professional. Small... More

We had been wanting to do the Murder Mystery Dinner for a number of years, and I'm glad that we finally got around to it. We had a blast, and ended up making a few new friends. As others have mentioned, the property is indeed dated, but that's sort of the point. This is not a "luxury" b&b in the... More
