Red, White, & You!

June 27th, 2013 by SpicerCastle

Red, White, and You – Celebrate the Fourth of July at Spicer Castle

Calling all pasta lovers.

April 16th, 2013 by SpicerCastle

Our Chef, Jake’s  inspiration for April 19 & April 20, 2013 is Zesty Sausage and Rosa Cavatappi.  Imagine the perfect combination of marinara and alfredo sauce with pan tossed fresh mushrooms, zesty sausage and cavatappi topped with parmesan cheese.  Perhaps you will want to add to your meal by ordering a bottle of Castle Rock Red that we serve from our local Glacial Ridge Winery.  For dessert a slice of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake with raspberry couli and a dollop of real whipped cream.

You will dine by candlelit overlooking beautiful Green Lake in Spicer, Minnesota.  This is date night done right.

Romantic Candlelight Valentine’s Dinner

January 30th, 2013 by SpicerCastle

When it comes to celebrating the most romantic  holiday of the year, there’s simply no more amorous way to woo your Valentine than with an exquisite dinner and cozy stay at a historic inn.  After all nothing says “I Love You” like a candlelit dinner for two and a romantic evening in a guestroom that features a double whirlpool tub and gas fireplace.

Does your sweetheart love chocolate and flowers?  You can add fresh flowers and chocolates from Mr. B’s Chocolates to your get-away.  Now that’s a Valentine’s Day to remember.

 

 

Veterans Day Fundraiser for the Blue Star Mother’s

November 20th, 2012 by SpicerCastle

Veterans Day - Blue Star Mothers FundraiserNovember is a time for remembering our war heroes who have served our country.  The Blue Star Mother’s do a fantastic job of supporting our troops.  Here is a brief synopsis of the Blue Star Mother’s Organization.  It is a support through service organization.  There are members from all over the United States.  Moms joining together to share their pride, their devotion and their worries for our sons and daughters currently serving in all branches of the Armed Forces of the United States, and our sons and daughters who are now veterans.

These families volunteer their time and efforts to send care boxes to our troops, support families while loved ones are away, and provide fleece blankets for our veterans just to name a few of the loving ways this organization supports our troops.  I can imagine the love that a veteran feels when a member visits with a fleece blanket or the troops overseas who open a care box filled with items from home.

This will be our third annual fundraiser.  Sample our great BBQ Ribs and flatbread with garlic, melted cheese and assortment of fresh vegetables along with other favorite goodies to enjoy.  The children enjoy telling Santa what they want for Christmas and the troops will enjoy getting their drawings that were included in the care boxes. 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our Open House Fundraiser filled with lots of laughs, fun and food at the Spicer Castle Inn and Restaurant, 11600 Indian Beach Rd., Spicer, MN  56288.   Monday, November 14, 2011 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.

Spicer Castle Inn (Spicer, MN) Reviews

November 20th, 2011 by SpicerCastle

Spicer Castle Inn

With Thanksgiving around the corner, I was thinking this evening why I am so thankful.  As a mom and grandmother, I am thankful for my amazing sons, grandsons and finally a granddaughter born on November 8th.  Does anyone know if they sell pink trucks?  Just kidding!   It is so much fun when my grandsons visit and ask for “nola bars” and “fuit nacks,” translated granola bars and fruit snacks.  Coloring pictures, playing ball and reading books are great past-times at my house.  I love to bake pies, breads, pastries and cakes and I plan to bake our family favorites: pumpkin, pecan and apple pies with enough left overs to send goodies home with my family.

Birthday Cake

As an innkeeper, I am thankful for our amazing staff that work so hard to make sure that each guest is met with gracious hospitality, clean rooms and great food.  Their dedication and extra effort to make sure that our guests enjoy their stay is outstanding, they are my extended family and I am so grateful.

I am very thankful for all the wonderful guests that we have had the privilege of welcoming to our historic country lake inn.  The highlight of innkeeping is meeting and getting to know our guests, just last week there was a couple celebrating their anniversary and I had so much fun helping the man plan a surprise vow renewal for his wife.  It is creating memories  that makes all the hard work that goes into innkeeping rewarding.  This isn’t just an old building with all its intricacies, it is a place where people celebrate life’s precious moments.   We had a dream of having people enjoy this piece of history and feel like they are home while visiting our bed and breakfast.

I hope you all have reasons to be thankful this year and remember the little things that make you smile.   I’ll really be smiling this year because my family is coming to my house and I get to prepare a feast; and I look forward to more great guest comments, maybe one from you!!!

Experience spectacular fall colors in Central Minnesota

September 28th, 2011 by SpicerCastle

“While most trees and shrubs have just started to put on their fall colors, the red or smooth sumac along the Glacial Ridge Trail already is sporting firey red and orange colors.  Red Sumac turns color before other fall foliage.

Experience spectacular fall colors in Spicer, MN

Experience spectacular fall colors in Spicer, MN

The DNR predicts the best fall color in 10 years for 2011!” States the Lakes Area Review.

Looking for a spectacular driving route?  The Glacial Ridge Trail is a beautiful driving route that meanders through the prairie and woods that is absolutely gorgeous right now and hopefully will last another week.

While the weather is still nice a bike ride or hike on the Glacial Lakes State Trail or the 12 mile trail that follows around Green Lake would be quite refreshing.

View Green Lake Bike & Hike Trail, Spicer, MN in a larger map
The lakes are calm this time of year and a canoe trip to view the fall colors would be spectacular.

If you are looking for a beautiful fall outing be sure to include West Central Minnesota in your plans.
