We checked in Wednesday, and left on Friday - but wish we could have stayed longer. The young lady who checked us in was very sweet, and showed us to our room. We stayed in Amy's room, which was small, but very cozy for the two of us. Our room was clean, and the bed comfortable. It isn't a modern... More

I am not one to write negative hotel reviews because I am usually quite satisfied wherever I choose to stay; however, I feel that it is my moral obligation to write this as a warning to potential guests before they make the choice to stay here. Sadly, I wouldn’t wish this experience upon any other living soul. For Valentine’s Day,... More

I visited Spicer Castle today and had a delightful tour of the grounds. The owner is absolutely wonderful and very inviting. She asked one of her staff members to give me a tour of the entire place, which was very nice. I was impressed at how knowledgeable her staff was with the history and over all ins and outs of...

We were very excited & had high hopes for our stay at the Spicer Castle, & couldn't have been more disappointed! The house was in complete disrepair! It felt dirty & cluttered, & had a musky, moldy damp odor. The drab burlap wall covering was peeling off as you climbed the battered staircase to your room. There was nothing grand... More

My wife and I had a very good time visting Spicer Castle. We stayed in Eunice's room. The decor was a bit different from the website picture, but was prett comfortable. The food was fantastic and worthy of any 4 or even 5 star dining experience. The mystery dinner was very fun, although we did not get our "script" until... More

Had a very interesting stay! Really enjoyed getting to visit with the original builders grandson! Wow! The food was really good. Be sure and make reservations for dinner. The breakfast is served at 9 am. Plan accordingly.

We stayed August 17th in John's Cottage and it was pure bliss. The weather was amazing, the cottage was cozy. We sipped wine while watching the gorgeous view of the sunset across the lake. The corner whirlpool was intimate and relaxing. This is definitely a place to fall in love all over again. I cannot comment on dinner, as there... More

If your'e looking for your average run of the mill, Hotel style room - this isn't for you. But if you're looking for an older grand home (turned into a Bed & Breakfast) with tons of character, a delicious breakfast, with beautiful views of the lake - this is a cool place!
