We put together a multi-day wedding event in July 2014 and could not have been happier! We worked with Amanda to rent out both the Gatekeeper's Castle (for the week) and the Antique Barn for the wedding and reception over the weekend. There had been some confusion with the now-gone manager of the castle, but Amanda was very helpful and... More

Hello Albert, I apologize for your horrible experience as I did on the phone as well. However we did not "fire" the previous "manager" the women you made reservations with in February was a tenant renting from Troll Haven who chose to abandon the property and her business here. We in no way managed any business she had going on... More

We had our wedding here and it was truly a perfect day. Josie was such a great hostess and so accommodating! We booked an upstairs room for the the night before and after the wedding to get ready in and it was lovely. We stayed the night in the dungeon though which was so unique and fun! We didn't stay...

we just loved our stay in the Gate Keeper's Castle. A Tim Burton's dream come true. The bedrooms were recently upgraded/remodeled and the bathroom was huge and luxurious. The resident keeper (Josie) and kitties were great hosts. the grounds are phenomenal. you won't find another place like it! and for the price, definitely the best deal in Sequim. You will... More

Me and the missus enjoyed our two night stay. Violet, our hostess, was very friendly and accommodating. She gave us a tour of this very interesting castle and we got to see the dungeon, which was very cool. Glad we stayed upstairs, because I need windows and fresh air circulation to sleep, which does not exist down there. Breakfast is... More

I booked this place based on all of the positive reviews and I thought it sounded like it would be something out of the ordinary and fun. It was definitely out of the ordinary (in a bad way) and definitely NOT FUN. Here is a list of common amenities that you won’t find here: •A lock on your bedroom door... More

We are two mature (over 65) friends and traveller companions. We love to stay in unique places and this one was unique to the point that upon entrance to the dungeon, we questioned our sanity. What are we doing here? Where are the lights, the windows, the phone? We were in the dungeon - literally. My friend said "let's pick... More

This is one of the most unique properties I've ever visited, and not to be missed. For one, the value of what you're getting is miles ahead of any BnB; deluxe dual head steam shower, giant tub for two, massive grounds to walk, views for miles, real privacy, space. The whole castle of course has a medieval theme which wanders... More

We stayed at the castle for our 15th wedding anniversary and will be back for sure. The building its self is just gorgeous. The view was amazing and the dungeon was a fantasy of it's own. The host and hostess were by far the best part though. Fun and down to earth people. The pictures do not do this hide... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Designed and built from a dream. This medieval castle is the most enchanted castle in the area. Looking upon the structure, flights of pure fantasy and imagination dazzle the mind. Feasting, sieges, bards, mystery and wonder grow when stepping into this magical world. An age of bygone kings, magicians, giants, dwarfs, sorceresses, elves and trolls. Through the doors, chivalry is born and romance has its origins in this magical world. The castle is extremely spacious and must be seen to fully appreciate. This is a dream getaway for anybody seeking a refuge from the mundane. The Gate Keepers Castle has a total of 5 full size bedrooms all prepared in the finest linens, rest easy in luxury. There are 3 bedrooms in the King Suite, as well as a full size Jacuzzi, steam shower and a decor unique in its own right. The main floor has a full restaurant style equipped kitchen, fireplace, and bathroom all with an elegant Victorian charm, with modern appliances. Meandering up the spiral staircase to the upper floor, one is drawn to the stained glass and antique decor. Here you will find two more spacious bedrooms and a bathroom. ... more   less
