Our family went and really enjoyed our visit - grandparents, daughter, and ten year old. The youngest asked many questions. We loved seeing all the old furniture, and finding more about the history. The cattle are still raised today - they were introduced by the last owner who lived there many years. She was divorced and had two young sons;... More

The art work that is displayed was donated to the castle by the last owner includes a real battle canon and a knight's uniform. Paintings of British Royalty and a piece of pottery dating back to BC period.

I was fortunate to visit the Castle at various times when it was owned by Tweet Kimball. I frequent it now for various special events as well as to attend the various offerings by the Castle itself. It's truly a gem!

We attended an elk bugling event at the Castle one evening with another couple. The presenter was not very interesting and then we didn't even see or hear any elk. We really didn't learn anything... Would not recommend that particular event!

My garden club visited Cherokee Castle for a tour and lunch. Both were amazing. The castle's history is intriguing and the classic artwork is unbelievable, with such treats as originals architectural drawings from Sir Christopher Wren.. The food was catered and was delicious. Our guide was fantastic, quite knowledgeable and excited about her task. The views are also wonderful.

We came back from a lecture on northern European gardens held in the main area of the castle last night, feeling like we had been to another country in a little vacation.

We enjoyed the formal English tea before the castle tour. There were 4 interesting teas to choose from. There was a 3-tiered tray of finger sandwiches including open faced shrimp, a beef and cheese, and a chicken rollup with mango. The sweets included a mini-scone, cream puffs and other delicacies. While the original setting of food seems small, they brought... More
