We did the Murder Mystery Dinner while staying at this rural Minnesota B&B and had a great time ! Food was excellent and met many new folks during the meal while role playing various characters ... Each diner is a character so be ready to participate. Paul's Room was pleasant but detached from main building. Weekend was grey and windy... More

I took my husband to Spicer Castle on Friday night for an early birthday getaway. We enjoyed our stay starting out with tea and some cribbage shortly after our arrival. We stayed in the MASON room which was very comfortable with a nice view of Green Lake. That evening we attended the Mystery Dinner with 6 other guests. We all... More

We stayed in John's cabin which was a lot more rustic than the pictures showed. It reeked of smoke when we walked in and i figured out why when we started a fire. The wood burning fireplace doesnt seem to have a flue so you have to keep the glass shut and the smell has no place to go really.... More

We decided to take our employees and their significant others to Spicer Castle for a work Christmas party. We booked 6 rooms in the main house. If you are looking for new and modern I would not recommend coming to Spicer Castle. however, If you are open minded, enjoy history, can appreciate what this home was like back in the... More

We stayed on a 1/2 price deal through the Star Tribune Golden Gavel. The place is very old and creeky. If you really like history and mysteries you will like this. You have to be able to stand old floors, old bedding, old rooms, old everything. It is a very old house. Smells of course come along with that. I... More

We appreciate your comments. I agree with you that the Inn is old, built in 1895 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The family has worked hard to preserve the original quality of the home. Thank you for your comments, it allows us the opportunity to continue to improve our services. More

Spicer Castle is nothing like its pictures, it is in ill repair, totally run down and dirty. You can't see out the bug covered windows. The grounds are overgrown with weeds. You literally have to "squeeze" into the tiny bathrooms, which are inside of closets. We were hoping to enjoy a restful week-end at a B&B, that was not the... More

I wouldn't call this place a B&B or a castle. It is a run down dirty old house. This was a gift for my sister, her husband and my parents who drove 4 1/2 hours to spend the night with my husband and I. What a nightmare of a place. The entrance was more like the back door. There were... More
