Wonderful B&B for Anniversary Trip

5 on August 28, 2014

My husband and I stayed at Ravenwood Castle for our 1st anniversary. It was a great opportunity to "unplug". We stayed in the Shakespeare Suite (where there is no tv). We spent most of our time when we were at the castle in the tavern playing games. The staff is very accomodating and loves to encourage guests to play games. The breakfast is also excellent. Overall a very fun and unique weekend getaway.


Con at the Castle

3.8 on August 24, 2014

We had our first Ravenwood stay for Con at the Castle in the Candle Maker Cottage. The staff and the owners were awesome beyond expectations!! It is not often you dine, game and talk with the actual owner of an establishment. Both Jim and Pam were out with the guests and genuinely interested in everyone's thoughts about the event, and their stay. The gaming at the castle was a blast! The event was small enough to feel intimate yet large enough to meet new people, play new games and share our favorites! The food was beyond expectations! The grounds were also very lovely and the cottages were very charming. Unfortunately, we were disappointed in our cottage. The room was damp and smelled musty (it was raining the entire weekend). The lack of a bathroom door was an issue for us and we likely would not stay in that cottage again. Even though the cottage was disappointing, it did not diminish our experience and we would recommend the Castle and return without hesitation and the Castle was just beautiful! Overall it was a fantastic weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed the event and our experience!


A wonderful get away

5 on August 11, 2014

My wife and I had a wonderful experience. The staff was fantastic and full of energy. Can't wait to go back.


Cool Castle!

4.2 on August 11, 2014

The castle is really cool! Rooms were fabulous! We came in the evening and were told that pub food was available. The food that was considered pub food was soup from a can and a grilled cheese sandwich that was not fully cooked. The castle is a bit remote, which is fine if you are aware of that. The breakfast was a whole different experience. It tasted great!! They need that cook on staff in the evening too.


Unique bed and breakfast experience in the heart of Hocking Hills

4.4 on August 06, 2014

One of my all time favorite destinations. The drive to the castle can be tricky since it's dirt road and hilly, but it's well worth it. Breakfast is always great! Be sure to get good directions since you can't see the castle from the main road.


First Timer's Delight

4.4 on August 04, 2014

This was the first time I have ever been to a Bed and Breakfast. I must admit that I was a bit skeptical to be experiencing this in a castle. My skepticism was turned to awe as I saw that Ravenwood has the aesthetics and feel of an authentic mid-evil castle but coupled with all modern amenities. This may have been my first visit but I guarantee it will not be my last!


Cool Castle

3.6 on August 04, 2014

We were intrigued by the Castle and found the grounds exceptional. We wish we could have seen some of the other rooms. Our room was what we expected however, it was right next to the pub. Thankfully the pub was not used the night we were there. The staff was nice but no one introduced themselves and I found that the majority of the public parts of the castle were dark. We were unable to have breakfast the morning we left but were given muffins to take with us. We would stay there again, just in a different room. I suggest when guests check in that the staff introduce themselves. A very neat experience.


Peaceful and Relaxing Stay

4.6 on July 31, 2014

We stayed in the Tanner Cabin which was just remodel. The room was very nice and comfortable. The dining experience with the Beer Tasting could have gone smoother but it was still very enjoyable. The pace of the meal was a little slow. We plan on going staying there again!


A Quant, Quiet Medieval Experience

3.6 on July 30, 2014

Ravenwood is a great country getaway—one of Ohio’s hidden gems. I would recommend a two-night stay: one in the castle itself, and one in one of the cottages. My wife and I were looking for a quant, quiet (as well as affordable) experience, and we definitely found that at Ravenwood.


Fun getaway!

4.2 on July 28, 2014

Took our 7 year old after hiking all day. She was excited to stay in a real castle. No phone, no tv, no problem! There were so many games to choose from, we had a great time trying out different board games and disconnecting. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend and we will likely stay again. Thanks!
