Perfect setting for a getaway

4.6 on August 19, 2014

Our room was lovely and overlooked this gorgeous property. Ruth couldn't be nicer or more helpful and Herb's gourmet breakfasts were the best way to start the day. Loved the walks through the wooded areas and the amenities available at all times made our stay there that much nicer. Will definitely be back

Anniversary Celebration

4.0 on August 11, 2014

We celebrated one night at Castle in Country Bed & Breakfast for our 10 year anniversary. We could not have celebrated any better. Everything was top-notch. The room was superb, the food excellent and the gounds were so peaceful and well kept. I would highly recommend a stay here and we will definitely return.

Great experience, worth repeating

4.8 on August 04, 2014

I surprised my wife for our 20th anniversary with a two night stay here. We had not been here before and only had the online reviews to go by. We stayed in the Lady Guinevere Suite and I opted for the Royal Treatment package. This included breakfast in the room one morning, a couples massage, picnic basket lunch one day, and a dinner voucher from one of three restaurants. They have the service very well choreographed and on-time. All of the staff were exceptionally polite and professional. We really wished we could have stayed a third day to be a little more relaxed. The only reason dining did not get five stars is do to the drive to get to most of the restaurant options. Be sure to try Salt of the Earth and Butch's Dry Dock. Guys, if you want to break the stereotype of the clueless husband surprise your wife with a trip to Castle in the Country. I earned a ton of brownie points and we can't wait to go back!

Fantastic place

4.6 on July 21, 2014

Just a fantastic beautiful place. I had only one issue, I had paid extra for a picnic basket and the cookies provided we burnt and the innkeeper didn't seem especially concerned about it. The fact was those should've never made it into the basket. However the basket and contents were very nice. Our overall experience was wonderful and besides that one concern, the innkeeper and staff were great and friendly.

Perfect romantic getaway

5 on July 21, 2014

Our stay at Castle in the Country was wonderfully more than expected. The innkeepers were pleasant and informative and definitely proud of their property. I was impressed with how fresh and immaculate the grounds were kept and how spotless the rooms were. I would go back just for Herb's breakfast and Ruth's warm smile. Jay Rifkind

Castle in the Country

3.8 on July 17, 2014

I loved Castle in the Country. Beautiful nature views from the windows, romantic whirlpool rooms, delicious breakfasts. I also loved the screened in gazebo areas, fire pits. We took the trail to Emerson Lake and took the paddle boat out. I sat on the dock and gazed at the beautiful views. My only complaint is the price should be lowered, I think it's too high of a rate. I understand they are all about luxury and top of the line but it's more expensive than I want to pay.

Relaxing and beautiful

5 on July 17, 2014

Had an amazing and relaxing stay. We did the couples massage which was fantastic. The grounds were beautiful and peacful. Would definatly come again.

Outstanding place to stay!

We have stayed here 3 times now (plus got married here) and already have 2 more trips booked.Very relaxing atmosphere, and the rooms are amazing, while the staff is always friendly and willing to give you great tips on places to go and eat. Top notch all the way around!!

Castle in the Country is truly amazing!

5 on June 30, 2014

Beautiful place. Rooms are perfection. Stayed in the Camelot suite. Loved the private patio entrance and amazing bathroom! Watched the NBA playoffs in a 2 person jacuzzi tub!!! A TV in the bathroom was probably my boyfriends favorite feature :-) I highly recommend the add on packages. We added one that included couples massages, a horse carriage ride, and a photo session. I love the pictures. So tired of taking couple selfies... Ruth the inn keeper spent some time with us on the grounds and captured beautiful pics for us to remember our stay. She made my boyfriend feel conformable in front of the camera which is not easy to do haha. The food was amazing. We added the picnic basket which was wonderful. Herb is quite a chef. It was so romantic having a prepared picnic out by the lake. Wine was excellent. We loved not having to leave the grounds and find a restaurant for dinner. No interruptions and wait staff. Just the two of us in a fabulous setting with a spectacular meal. Can't wait to celebrate here again. Maybe one day we'll even get married here... :-)

Dream Come True getaway!
