I went here for a family reunion. My wife's family had the whole main house, and some of the cabins rented out. It was a nice little place with a wonderful view of the lake, adequate gathering space, and rooms that are good for a bed and breakfast. If you're planning on spending a lot of time in your room...

We purchased a Living Social certificate for this property. Decided to drive two hours to stay at the "Castle." We checked in a were led to a small cabin which was divided into two cabins. The sidewalk was covered with anthills (could have easily been swept) and the door step was covered with dead bugs. The cabin was about 300...

Beautiful old mansion with fun cabins on the grounds. The staff is exceptional and the food is beyond amazing. Maybe not as fancy as people might expect but quaint and relaxing time with a glimpse of how life used to be. The area and Green Lake are beautiful and well worth the trip to just get away from it all.

My husband and I received a gift certificate here for a room of our choice and the murder mystery dinner. We choose John's Cabin, since it is the most expensive. After staying here, we are so glad we did not pay for it out of our own pocket. B&B Pros & Cons: Pros: Staff was friendly. Food was okay, but...

Thank you for your review of our Inn. I am happy to read that you found our staff courteous and your cabin clean. My apologies regarding the pull down shades in need of repair. I am happy to report that the shades have been replaced by wooden blinds. I am glad you met new friends at our murder mystery dinner.

We were not warned when we booked that the room was not in the castle. We stayed in a cabin called Curry. If you are claustrophobic never ask for this cabin. The nice thing I have to say is that it is impeccably clean. The bed space and shower are up the stairs. The stairs are basically a narrow ladder....

Spicer Castle Inn is located on Green Lake in Spicer Minnesota. We stayed in Raymond's Cabin. The cabin is very rustic and was built in the early 1900's. The bedroom is up in the loft and was very comfortable. The views are incredible at the cabin. Spicer castle offers a wonderful breakfast that is brought to you in the dining...

I had seen photos online before booking and had some idea of what to expect. I did notice the bathroom shower was pretty crummy, but assumed it would be repaired by our visit (about 2 months away). 

It was not. It’s not “rustic”, it’s just garbage and should be replaced. Plan on not showering or using the jacuzzi tub (which...

Stayed in Raymonds Cabin (one of two that allows dogs, which we had). Very rustic, and just a step up from camping... however, it was just what we expected and were looking for.

We spent one night here in Christopher's room. Very sweet but very small. Luckily we are smaller people. If you are over 6 foot pick another room. The full breakfast was amazing...don't miss it. Plus the grandson to John Spicer the founder of Spicer, MN give a 15 min talk on the Spicer family...very informative and special.
