The place looks quite rundown from the outside - definitely some deferred maintenance there - but my room was cute & cozy, and the relatively untouched 1893 vibe was charming. Breakfast was great, and the owner, a gentleman who looked about 80, stopped by with his coffee and regaled us with tales of life at the Spicer Castle in his... More

Thank you for your review. We are happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at our historic Inn. I agree that Green Lake is beautiful and great to look at or perhaps enjoy a canoe trip to see our B&B from the lake. More

We enjoyed last year's visit so much, we decided to stay at the Castle for our anniversary again. This time, we stayed in John's Cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. The whirlpool was nice. We also used the fireplace one night. We did have a little trouble lighting the fire, the matches weren't very good. The bathroom is definitely... More

We were very surprised at how well the chef accomodated us. I am a vegetarian and my husband is a vegan. The Inn made wonderful breakfasts that met both our dietary needs and were yummy! We stayed in Amy's room. The bathroom was extremely small. My husband who is skinny and only slightly taller than an average man could barely... More

We booked a murder mystery stay on march 21. We had the Raymond cabin. There were ashes from the fireplace all over the floor. When I sat down on the loveseat dust flew into the air. There were cobwebs and dirt everywhere. I went and complained and they offered to show us another room, when we arrived there the cleaning... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at our country lake inn. Your initial reservation was for Raymond's Cabin which is our rustic log cabin that was built by a French lumberjack in 1912. This rustic cabin would remind guests of Little House on the Prairie and is enjoyed by many guests who want to stay in... More

Stayed there over the weekend and it was wonderful. We didn't partake of the Murder, but it was fun to see those that did. We stayed in the main house and the "noise" from the two dinners didn't bother us. But, if you aren't partaking and want a quieter experience, then stay in one of the outer rooms like the... More

What a horrible night. We came to enjoy a lovely fall getaway, but the inn was hosting one of their mystery dinners and our room was right over the dining room. It was loud and raucous and went until nearly midnight. You can't have it both ways - you are a bed & breakfast OR you have these noisy events... More

This was our third stay at this beautiful old mansion on the shores of Green Lake. What ambiance and history this place has. We have stayed in the Curry room, Raymond's Cabin and now Paul's room. Each one was as fun as the next. The staff is warm and welcoming, very friendly and they provide great service. The house itself... More

My wife and I recently shared an absolutely delightful stay at the Spicer Castle, which is truly an undiscovered treasure in the area! The house itself is one of the great architectural gems of southwestern Minnesota, and has a terrific history. Going inside the B&B, you feel like you have stepped back 100 years -- the original old wood floors,... More

My husband and I enjoy going to different B&B's. I was very disappointed in Spicer Castle. I booked my room two days before we went and never received a reseveration confirmation phone call, asking what we would like to eat for our $110.00 dollar dinner. I had to eat what they gave me and it was cold when i got... More

I am sorry that your experience at our Inn was not great. Although explanations after your stay are hardly satisfactory, I believe you deserve such. I researched your reservation and found that an email confirmation containing the murder mystery fare and murder mystery invitations was sent at 10:30 am on Thursday, June 7th. There are memory foam mattresses on our... More

I enjoy getting away now and then from the cities to a B&B on my own - mainly to relax and rejuvenate. As I was deciding, I kept seeing Spicer Castle everywhere so had to check it out! I decided to opt out of the mystery dinner for a more low-key evening so arrived later. I learned at breakfast that... More
