This was our third stay at Castle in the Country. The first two times we stayed in the whirlpool suites, but this time, due to a tight budget, we stayed in one of the standard rooms, the Golden Tower room. We stayed just after Christmas last year. Leading up to our stay, I was a little disappointed we weren't going to stay in one of the "fancy" suites. When we arrived, I was proven completely wrong! The Golden Tower room was great. It actually was two rooms, in a way. The main sleeping area has great character with a full turret ceiling, modeled from the original turret design of the tower. Out side the room, -well they describe it as a sitting area, but it is more of a "sitting hallway". Right outside the room is a table and a beautiful, antique (or antique style) couch. However, as the room was in the attic, the wall was too sloped by the couch to sit comfortably. Pulling it out a few inches will remedy any discomfort but we didn't use that couch much. At the end of the hall is a vanity with a comfortable stool. Great to put on makeup or check a tie, and very cute. The bathroom was clean, everything you need. It had a one person shower. The thing that stands out most, almost a year later, is how they utilized the space and made the most of a smaller room. The tv was smallish but perfectly proportional to the room, the door from the sleeping area was a sliding one, many wonderful decorative accents were in the windows to utilize that space, and there was a skylight in the shower to make it seem more open. The only thing, and this really couldn't be helped, is the heating unit in the room is extremely loud. It's an old house, and the room is in the attic, so the heat/ac is a unit, not central. The unit is right by the bed, and makes a lot of noise. On the bright side, the room heats up quickly and we were able to turn it off for most of the night, even during a snow storm. And like always, service was great, food delicious, amenities wonderful.

My wife and I spent our 6th anniversary at Castle in the Country and were very impressed. When we first arrived, we had to wait a slight bit. At first, I was a little miffed by this until I realized it was because Ruth goes over the entire itinerary with each couple individually! We were both taken aback by this as we were not used to that level of personalization, especially from the owners! We purchased one of the packages and so Ruth also took care of getting our dinner reservation setup. When a snag came up with our original choice, Ruth called us to find a solution which worked, which was a nice touch. We stayed in the Camelot room, which was gorgeous. It was immaculately clean and the attention to detail is astonishing. One thing we loved is that the fireplace is right at the perfect level to look at when you are laying on the bed. The hot tub and shower were fantastic as well. It was also secluded from the rest of the rooms and having our own private entrance was really nice. It added to the ambiance of the experience. The breakfasts both days were fantastic! My wife in particular loved her omelet. However, we were particularly surprised by the picnic basket. Neither of us were expecting all that much from it, but we took the basket out to the gazebo and had an amazing lunch. We were surprised how fantastic a simple lunch can be. The bread was amazing! The massages were great. Both masseuses were incredibly friendly and my wife and I both came out of the experiences feeling fantastic. The one downside was that to do the things we wanted to do (namely hit the beach and eat at the restaurants Ruth recommended) we did more driving than I expected. This wasn't a problem, but it is something to be aware of. The Castle is in the Country and there is a reason Country is in the name! In short, we plan on coming back!

We stayed the weekend before Christmas. It was very quiet and just what my husband and I needed. The room 'Crowning Suite' was beautiful. We loved the tub and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was amazing and we had a couple's massage and the ladies did a great job. We had everything we needed, the picnic basket was so well thought out. We had such a relaxing and enjoyable time. The romance was around every corner!
Dear Guest, I always admire couple's who know how to find what they need to have a wonderful time together. We've found that total peace and quiet with just the right amount of pampering is usually the passport to romance! So glad you found what you were looking for and were able to enjoy a romantic escape here at Castle in the Country.

My husband and I just got back from the Castle in the Country. We stayed in the King Arthur suite and it was nothing shy of amazing. The moment we go there it was instant relaxation. The was both modern and rustic at the same time and it was incredibly inviting. The view from this room is breathtaking and I believe it hosts the biggest window in the castle keep building. The inn keepers and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and did everything to make our stay wonderful. We purchased a couple of add-ons, including the Isn't it Romantic package, and the Picnic Lunch. Both were high quality. The food was delectable our entire stay and the restaurant we received a voucher to, Salt of the Earth, was beyond words. I am already craving the fried risotto and hanger steak we had there. The grounds were beautiful and this was in late fall. They have a nice trail for walking/biking, The pond is beautifully situated and there is a nice deck and Gazebo to sit and take it all in from. Everything was clean and so well kept up. It truly makes you feel like a home away from home...well a much more comfortable and less stressful home. ; ) We can not wait to go back!
Dear Guest, "Instant relaxation". That's what we all work to provide for our guests here at Castle in the Country and it's what so many couples need in their lives. Thanks for letting us know that you found that magical feeling:-) We'll keep working to bring that to every guest who walks through our doors and in every guest room that we provide.
