We just returned from the BEST trip to Ravenwood Castle for our five year wedding anniversary. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to adequately express what a fantastic time we had in this review, so let me just begin by shouting: THIS PLACE IS SO MUCH FUN!!
The castle concept in quirky and fun and they do a great job pulling it off. There's so much to see around the building and around the grounds and they pay close attention to detail. We stayed in the Clocktower cabin, which was AWESOME, perfect for a romantic getaway-- beautiful woodwork, an electric fireplace and a huge whirlpool tub made it nice and cozy for our snowy weekend.
We participated in the Beer Tasting Weekend event and it was a blast. The owner, Jim, knows tons about beer and keeps an outstanding craft beer menu on hand. The whole staff seems to know their boardgames, too. The innkeeper, Steve, even spent one night teaching us new games. The whole staff was really wonderful-- so helpful and so much fun to be around. They treated us like friends.
Also, be warned: You probably won't get any cell reception. We were a little nervous about that, but it turned out to be just what we needed.
We loved this place so much! We can't wait to come back, hopefully soon!
