The castle was a great place to spend the weekend. We were impressed by the way it was decorated. The great room, where we had breakfast (included) and dinner(extra) was very nice. The food and service was very good. The managing couple, Preston and Amy, were very attentive and helpful. They are so busy that sometimes you have to ring...

My boyfriend and I went to the murder mystery for Jurassic Park this past weekend. We had such an amazing time!! We met some really cool people. This experience was like no other I have ever had. I am really looking forward to going back. If you like the game of Clue this will be right up your alley!! :)

Every time I go to the Castle, I have the best time. The staff is great! The food is excellent. The murder mysteries are entertaining. It's wonderful to get away from it all, & with cell reception being spotty at best, it helps to put away technology & enjoy the surroundings & company. I highly recommend the Castle.

Arriving on a Tuesday in January..we were the only guests in the castle! The castle immediately transported you back to a different time. The great dining room was impressive. We stayed in the Shakespeare Room which was very spacious and nicely furnished. We arranged to have a wine and cheese platter on arrival and that was a great way to...

We stayed in the Brewer's Cottage and it was immaculate and very comfortable. The mystery itself was so amazing! Les, Liz and Mr. Denham were hilarious and the mystery was executed wonderfully.

I was a little nervous about driving to the castle it was in the middle of nowhere. So once we got up that hill and saw that amazingly beautiful castle my opinion change quick. We stayed in the Cinderella Cottage it was beautiful, cozy, and just overall and amazing tricks. My only suggestion would be to add a small stove...

There were 8 of us for the murder mystery. This was so much fun! The first clues were in your room waiting for you. We dressed up Friday night which was a lot of fun. The staff was amazing. They all had clues for us and we had to do some "bribing" to get those clues. Mr Denham and Les...

Very nicely decorated rooms, but try to get upstairs or a cabin. You can hear people playing games in the dining room late, and water running through the pipes all night. Seems like food has gone downhill. $25 for a buffet a little pricy. Especially since I couldn't cut through the pork it was so tuff. Chicken was great though....
