This was our third time visiting the castle. It had been ten years since we last stayed. This time we stayed in the Blue Room overlooking the fountains out front. The day was nice and clear. Right upon entering you are taken back into another time with all of the classic furniture,decor and beautiful craftsmanship of this castle. We love...

Lovely Castle, great view and wonderful service. The Grandview Room was great, very comfortable bed. The castle feels like you are going back in time, with some modern amenities. My only negative comment would be the room was equipped with Blu Ray DVD player and was unable to play any of the movies onsite, not a big deal though as...

Wife and I stayed here in the Presidential Suite for 2-nights and we absolutely loved everything about this place. The Castle remodel is beautiful with attempts at restoring to its original glory but still implementing some modern features. The room we stayed in was great, awesome views of the rear grounds and lake, and quite large too with several sitting...

Once in a lifetime experience. We are still in awe of the Castle and the garden. It's like stepping back in early 1900 and seeing how life might have been. Surely will be back some day. It was so much more than what we thought it would be.

We knew this would be a unice experience, but our expectations were far exceeded. We were greeted and given a brief tour, covering the history of the castle. We were encouraged to make ourselves at home and explore the castle. Such beautiful grounds and the inside of the castle is like a museum. Be prepared for lots of weddings, which...

My husband and I were married here in 2014 so this summer we decided to stay here again for a little romantic overnight getaway. The staff was great! We weren't able to check in until 9:30pm (my mother couldn't get to our house to babysit until late) and even though they had a wedding going on that night, they assured...

From the moment we arrived we had excellent service. The host was friendly, informative, and enthusiastic. When our fireplace didn't work, the OWNER came over to fix it himself. He even shared the history of the castle with us. The house keeper and landscape keeper were wonderful people. Hard working, kind, and always a smile on their face. Breakfast was...

Beautiful property on American Lake. Location is immaculate with a beautiful sunken English garden. Interior is amazing, period furniture, just beautiful inside and out. Bed and Breakfast, with access to restaurants in Lakewood/Tacoma for dinner. Breakfast was fantastic - can be served to your room or you can take it in the Great Hall. Highly recommend staying here for a...

Beautiful, wonderfully restored castle. The weather was warm and walking around the grounds and enjoying the sunken garden made the visit even better. Breakfast was delicious, but there was too much food to eat. The server who also provided maid service was gracious and helpful. The owner was kind enough to answer our questions about the history of the castle....

this place is hard to find unless you know where you're going. was here for a friend's wedding the other night. As a venue this place was gorgeous for an outdoor wedding in the garden.

Thank you for the lovely review. During weddings/events we don't allow event guests to go down to the water. B&B guests are able to go down and enjoy the water during their stay.

“Pack light if you are on the third floor. the stairs are steep and well polished and although we were told we could bang/drag my sisters 50 pound suitcase up them it didn't feel right.”

“You can not go wrong with the choice of any room. We got to look in all the rooms during our stay and they were all impressive. Our room had a detached private bathroom (we knew that ahead of time) and even that was fun. The bathroom that goes with the Rose Red room was so nice, bright and large. Wow!”
