Green Lake is Beautiful and Spicer Castle is a great place to enjoy the lake. The Mystery Dinners are fun and well orchestrated with the Castle Staff. The rooms are lovely and comfortable we stayed in Martha and William which are a small cabin on the property. There is very little light pollution so the stars are brilliant especially from... More

Nice little inn and restaurant on south end of Green Lake. Good food and great views of the lake. Owners and staff are very nice and accommodating. They have a murder mystery dinner that I would highly recommend. So much fun.

We had made our reservation on a travel site. I ended up calling and getting more info on my room and check in times. The staff helped me change my room and dates to a smaller cabin so we could stay an extra day. I could not be happier with our time there. The owner even stayed up (til midnight)... More

First off - the reviews noting the wear and tear on the Inn are fair - the home is in need of updates and repairs. Even just some cosmetic upgrades would do wonders! (Landscaping, plant some flowers, get rid of junk/garbage around the property, etc.) Aside from that - our stay was very nice. The staff was extremely accommodating, the... More

We decided to stay at the "castle" for an overnight visit. We have stayed in historic B&Bs all around the country and understand quaint and old - but the Spicer Castle Inn lacks charm and simple amenities. The furniture in our space was uncomfortable to sit (cracked wicker chair) and the bed had no pillows! They had pillows with decorative... More

There is nothing I can say about this place that would include "Castle" the house was dirty, musty and really run down. The website for this inn is nothing that it appears to be in person.

I came up to the castle with my sisters and my mother as a surprise for mom's birthday. The rooms were tiny, and the bathtub was dirty (it had some gross brown stains on it and hairs stuck everywhere) so we actually just opted not to shower at all this weekend. The dock was broken and swamped. We had to... More
