Weekend Oasis

5 on October 14, 2013

The service was great and the history shared at breakfast by the Innkeeper was fascinating. Our guests from Sweden felt welcome and at home with the casual and warm surroundings looking out at beautiful Green Lake in central MN.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review. I really enjoyed talking with your guests from Sweden. It was fascinating to learn more about their culture.


Great get away

5 on October 07, 2013

2nd time we have stayed here. Love the tranquility, history and charm. Food is great especially since dining options in the area are at a minimum. Enjoyed a little happy hour over looking the lake. Great to have everything right there that you need. Will go back again.


Friday Get-A-Way

3.6 on September 09, 2013

My wife and I had a very good time visting Spicer Castle. We stayed in Eunice's room. The decor was a bit different from the website picture, but was prett comfortable. The food was fantastic and worthy of any 4 or even 5 star dining experience. The mystery dinner was very fun, although we did not get our "script" until we arrived which did not give us much time to prepare. The staff were very friendly. We only had a few negatives. First, it was very hot in the B&B at the time we stated. While there are window A/C units and fans in the rooms ans other areas, it was very uncomfortable for some Also, it may be time to take a power washer or broom to some areas to clear off spider webs outside. There are also a few cracked windowpanes. So, a little TLC is needed on the grounds. In spite of the few negatives, it was overall a very enjoyable experience and we would go back for another stay.

Deliciously decadent - as splendid a texture as its name implies and a favorite of our guests - topped with hot fudge sauce and a dollop of real whipped cream is a winner that has earned the description, "to Die for."
