Great getaway castle!

We spend a night in this B&B a few days ago. It was very relaxing, enjoyable experience. Each room of the castle is unique and well decorated. Second floor rooms are bigger, with boudoir-like bathrooms and in general have more light. Third floor rooms are darker, cozier and more intimate, with red heart-shaped jacuzzis. A lot of unusual furniture pieces. Hallways, stain glass windows, dining room, small garden with fountain and tables are very beautiful. Hostess Patsy was very nice.

Romantic and close to Columbus!

Recently had a weekend getaway here with my husband for our anniversary. The heart shaped Jacuzzi tubs were SO unique, I've never seen anything like it! The innkeeper was extremely nice as well. The building has a lot of character. Definitely worth a visit!!

Disappointing

Description: The pictures on webpage are not accurate to current condition. Windows are single pane and the wood is rotting out around them. The front porch is falling in and not accessible. There was a huge hole in the roof of the carport on the side. Windows were cracked and one was actually missing! A round one in the front. Electrical cover was missing on one outlet I saw. One window had been shoot and had a hole. It didn't even have clear tape over the hole to cover it. Windows in honeymoon suite are blocked (one by both a desk and love seat). Probably afraid that if someone pushes on the window it will fall out and so will you! The other window sits behind a jacuzzi and has a wooden painted peice in front of it that is warped and falling apart. Room was cold. Has a neat broken tile floor design until you relize how sharp the pieces of tile are. Someone could cut their foot on the edges if not careful. Homemade ice is kept in ziplock bags in a freezer on the second floor. Goodies in basket were fruit snacks(2 small packs) potato chips (2 small bags), popcorn (1 bag) and water (2 bottles). All Aldi brand! Not refilled either. Microwave (single one for guest to share) is also on second floor. It's on top of a common fridge for all the guest to share. I didn't feel comfortable using it, so we avoided it. Whoever owns this castle needs to either invest some real money in it or give it to someone that can. It's in sad shape. How it meets code is beyond me. The train tracks are horrible at night. No mention anywhere on the website about that. They seemed to go by every hour at night. The honeymoon suite was like a dark attic room. Not charming or even welcoming. Seemed like an after thought trying to take a large storage room and make it an extra room. My husband paid for a rose, box of fine chocolates, and rose petals on the floor... Fake rose, small box of Russell Stover assorted chocolates and silk rose petals. I understand the fake petals, but a fake long stem rose? A 10 piece mixed Russell Stover box? That was very disappointing. Pros: The hostess was very sweet. The room wasn't dirty and the sheets were clean. The dinner was good. They were on time for serving. Overall: Not worth the price tag that comes with it. Hostess spent time apologizing for storm damage as stated by multiple signs throughout building. Much of damage was evident it wasn't from a storm, but from lack of maintenance, neglect, or no one caring for some time. I can see why you have to prepay and there are no refunds offered if you cancel. I wanted to run as soon as I got there but didn't want to loose almost $500!!! 2 nights!!! I felt really bad for my husband... He booked based on the website and didn't check reviews. His heart fell as soon as we arrived and saw the place. MOST places that charge the prices they do are worth it. He was trying to make it a special time for me. :-( We tried to make the best of it.

great getaway!

My husbands family lives in Circleville so we stayed here over the Easter holiday. Anita was such a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming. The castle itself was such a unique experience.. we love old buildings, so this was just top notch! We've stayed at many b&b's during our travels and this one was just terrific. Cheers!

Huge Disappointment

We have been staying in B&B's for 25 plus years and while we have had some interesting experiences, we have enjoyed them all. Until the castle, it is the only place we would never return to or recommend to someone else. The rooms were not clean and in dire need of repair, and the list goes on....if this was a hotel, you wouldn't stay here. You pay in full when you place your reservation and it is not refundable. We paid for two nights and left after the first night. When I told the woman in charge that we were leaving and why she simply said "thank you" and that was it. This was a very expensive lesson that we would like to save others from learning the hard way.

outstanding!

This was my first Bed and Breakfast, and it exceed my expectations by far. I was driving from Virginia to Columbus with my wife, who thought we were spending the night in Columbus. We arrived at the castle under the guise of taking pictures with the unique architecture, and Larry and Anita were in on it the whole time. They gave my wife, who was completely oblivious, a tour of the whole castle. The tour ended in our room, which Larry had sneaked our bags in through the back door. My wife was astonished! They nailed the surprise dead on! We arranged to stay on the third floor, but after taking the tour, we decided to change to the Princess Room. With the exception of the Honeymoon suite, the rooms on the third floor do not have any windows. The Princess Room, on the other hand, had a huge bay window area that lit up the room. It also had a huge bathroom. Anita lit a gas fireplace for us and helped set the ambiance. One mistake that was made was quickly rectified...beyond our expectations...I paid a little extra for candles and chocolates, and word never made it to Anita and Larry, so it wasn't in the room when we got there. When I called Jean, the owner, she gave us a free candlelight dinner (she usually charges $50 for it), and after the dinner, gave us the chocolates and a keepsake rose in the room anyway! Then she discounted the price, so I didn't pay for the chocolates and candles anyway! This was outstanding customer service! Anita and Larry were outstanding, too...always eager to help. Anita is an incredible cook for both breakfast and dinner. The food was as good as any I have ever had on a cruise ship. The room was great, and we decided to spend most of the day in the room. The parlor was also quaint, so we spent alot of time down there during the day, too. The castle was pretty authentic for a castle. I have visited several UK castles and am studying late medieval religion, so I am very acquainted with castles and the ambiance they project. Obviously, this was not a castle meant for defense or for a village or anything, but the living quarters reminded me of the living quarters at castles in Stirling and Edinburgh. Someone above remarked that they were a bit hokey, but that is the decor that castles have. I had high expectations for this place, and they blew those expectations out of the water. There is danger in overhyping anything, but I firmly believe that if you are looking for a bed and breakfast in the Hocking Hills or Columbus areas, this one should be at the top of your list. Additionally, you may be able to find some coupons through entertainment.com or other sites. Highly, highly, highly recommend this place!

Very Nice!

We stayed for our 10th wedding anniversary and had a great time! Innkeepers Jay and Samantha are very personable, and we loved Jay's cooking. This 110+ year old building is well-maintained, clean, and comfortable.
