Our visit to The Castle was a huge disappointment. The once magnificent place is now a run-down haunted house. The owners have really let it's condition go. First of all, we got lost trying to find the house, it is located in the middle of a really old industrial town. When we finally found it, we could not help but to notice overgrown landscaping and a crumbling facade. The pictures on their website must be old because they depict a beautifully manicured mansion! We were greeted by a nice man who gave us a tour of the house. The smell was beyond an "old house" smell. The decor is also very old and dingy. Not to mention every room has creepy porcelain dolls in it. I almost fell going upstairs because of the uneven steps due to rotten floorboards (or sinking settlement). The linens on our bed did not look clean and our bathroom had probably never been updated. Except for maybe the soap scum covered shower door. If you are looking for a haunted destination, this is the place for you. If you are looking for a quite, peaceful, relaxing weekend forgo this option and head to the Hampton Inn in Frostburg. That is where we ended up and had a wonderful stay. So, no, we did not end up staying the night at The Castle and they did not refund our money.
