This magnificent mansion, on the National Register of Historic Places, has endured for ten decades as an Ohio landmark. The Castle is constructed of Bedford Indiana limestone, 18 inches thick, and features a wrap around porch supported by intricate stone columns. Three turrets give this massive structure its castle-like appearance. Interior design results in elegance and comfort. GreatStone is finished in rare hardwoods from various countries, transported by sailing ships and rail, to their final destination atop a hill in Sidney, Ohio. Overlooking the historic downtown, two acres of lawn, gardens, and 100 year-old oaks greet all who approach by the scenic circular drive.

My new wife and I stayed here on a short notice looking after other plans fell through. A friend made the reservations so we had no idea what to expect. Needless to say, even if we had had the highest expectations, they would have been met & exceeded! Amazing food, staff, and a peaceful, comfy room.

As a business traveler, I was unable to book a room at my regular hotel in town on a recent trip, so I decided to give the GreatStone a try. I wasn't sure what I would find - since this is such an old building. What I found was a 17,000 square foot stone fortress/mansion that certainly lives up to its name! The building is old and magnificent both inside and out. I stayed in the Brighton Suite, which, I was told, is not the biggest one available. But it is more than twice as much room as a regular hotel room. This place is clean and has a pleasant fragrance - even for such an old building. The ceilings are 10 feet high. The 8 foot doors are solid cherry. They are works of art in themselves - very heavy and thick. The trim is also solid cherry around all the doors fire place and windows. There is a dressing room with a sink, then off of that the bathroom. Most importantly, the huge bed (a very high king-size) is probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Combine that with a super quiet atmosphere - and add all the interesting history (described in a book included in the room) - and you have a Bed and Breakfast that hotels cannot touch. The staff is very helpful. The breakfasts were always on-time and very good. After having stayed the first week, I immediately rebooked for the next week because I had to come to Sidney to continue the work. Honestly, I really love this place - and it makes going to Sidney so much more enjoyable. I heartily recommend this place for a magnificent alternative to regular hotels.

My husband and I went here as a christmas present for him. The castle was decorated in christmas decor everywhere, and it took our breath away. We stayed in the brighton suite and it was so wonderful. Everything smelled so good, the staff was so welcoming. We enjoyed everything. The breakfast was very fulfilling. We also had a spa package and we were blown away by how professional and amazing our experience was. We will surely go back and we recommend to everyone.

From the very beginning Elizabeth was a great help in planning my New Year's Eve visit. The castle was decorated in great holiday fashion, beautiful trees everywhere, even in our room. Andrea was a gracious hostess in helping me get settled and with last minute details for my special guest arriving. We had arranged to have dinner prepared especially for us by the resident chef, Jereme, at the suggestion of Elizabeth. We cannot say enough about the superb 5 course meal we were served privately in the library. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and we were accommodated with a late breakfast time so we did not have to rush. The room was wonderful, perfectly cozy with plenty of room. And the bed. . . it was very hard to leave its comfort each morning. The room and the castle were very clean with everything one could need. The service was excellent, professional and warm. We will definitely return to GreatStone Castle, hopefully to add another memorable chapter to our book of life.
