I escaped my office phone & computers in Brewer's Cottage, surrounded by trees,
on the grounds of Ravenwood Castle. Very quiet & clean.
Beautifully decorated. Enjoyed dinner & breakfast buffets in Castle.
Host & hostess were very kind, serving special request meals.
There is no TV, but good DVD library, and many board games -- all at no extra cost.
Near Ash Cave and Lake Hope. An easy drive to H.Hills Fox' canoe & kayak.

Room Tip: Brewer's Cottage is new, very quiet, a short walk from the Castle.

Ravenwood Castle is a wonderful place to go, disconnect, and relax. We stayed at the Clock Tower and it was very lovely and well-appointed, with a comfortable bed and stocked mini kitchenette. After hiking all day, the soaking tub was a godsend! Additionally, the innkeeper and staff were all very friendly and welcoming.

First time staying after visiting a few times. The castle is set in the forest - warning, there's a gravel road to get in, although it didn't seem to cause any problems. The forested setting is lovely, and there are gardens around the castle. The castle has several rooms, and there are a few cabins across the way, a few more farther down the road, and the "town" cottages. The cabins down the road were very close together, so maybe good for groups, and the town cottages were pretty close as well. The two cabins across the parking lot didn't have the same fairy tale theme, but had a little more seclusion.

We went for the Shakespeare Suite in the castle. It was very spacious, and having a door opening to the outside was nice. Comfortable bed, and quaint antique furnishings (a little uncomfortable). Not luxury, and could use a little updating (the toilet seat, for example, appeared to be rusting). Overall though it was a great place to spend a long weekend. However, it is NOT the room if you're looking for quiet. Being right off the great hall and by the stairs to the tavern, there were people talking and walking by quite a bit. I'd also encourage the staff to remind guests NOT to open the doors to other people's rooms!! Happened multiple times.

However in general the staff was excellent - very helpful and friendly but also respected privacy.

There are no tv's, no internet, no cell coverage - but the castle provides tons of games which is really fun. I would also suggest they think about adding a mini fridge to rooms. With the limited food at the castle, and town 30 minutes away, it would have been nice to be able to bring food (we wanted to picnic on our hikes).

Food - breakfast is included. They seemed to have some kind of muffin, a quiche or casserole, a cereal, and yogurt. Sundays are cinnamon rolls (heavy on the cinnamon). There's a tavern in the basement with a limited menu, and a nice small alcohol selection. Dinners can be purchased to be eaten in the great hall. We also got dinner one night, which was well done but nothing special. Our dinner included salad and rolls, baked chicken and pork (plain with some seasoning), roasted vegetables, baked potatoes, and a cobbler (to give an idea).

We would go back - maybe try one of the cabins!

Room Tip: Shakespeare room is handicap friendly, has a door to the outside, and located on the first floor with no stairs.

Gorgeous property, lively guests and great innkeepers. Accommodations were clean, interesting and comfortable. We stayed in a cabin on the edge of the property backed right up to the forest. Lively pub, home cooked breakfast and beautiful walking paths. We will be back.

If you enjoy castles, this place is pretty cool. You can stay inside the castle or in one of the many bungalows. They have a life size chess board and a garden out back. And they have the cutest cats that roam around outside :)
