Attention snowmobilers, cross country skiers and outdoor enthusiasts!

January 8th, 2009 by SpicerCastle

There is plenty of snow for snowmobiling, cross country skiing and snow shoeing.  You can bring your snowmobile or outdoor equipment and make your own path from our Inn  Or, located approximately 6 miles from our Inn is the Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center with groomed trails and equipment rental (skis and snow shoes), along with several fun activities.  The groomed 36 mile Glacial Ridge Trail is popular for snowmobiling and meanders through prairies and wooded terrain.

Afterwards, enjoy a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate followed by a fabulous dinner and dessert.   Relax in a double whirlpool tub while you watch the flames dance in the fireplace in one of our 18 guestrooms.  Play a board game or read a good book while you cozy up with your loved one.  In the morning enjoy a four-course breakfast with entrees such as broccoli, cheese and sausage egg strata with marinara sauce, eggs benedict or Belgian waffles.

As an innkeeper one of the most rewarding experiences is knowing that we  provide a place where our guests can meet new friends, enjoy great food, laugh, make smores at the firepit, read a book or put a puzzle together and walk the paths and view the spectacular fall colors.  Below are a couple of comments from our guests:

“The entire staff here does such a super job!  Everyone tended to anything we wanted/needed and they ALWAYS did it with a smile!  Thanks for going the extra mile and making a coconut cream pie to surprise my husband.  Please commend your entire staff.  Hope to see you soon!” Yvonne

“The food is amazing.  I did not expect gourmet food.  The room was very well taken care of and the staff has been very hospitable.  We will be back.” John & Diane

Are you ready to experience a relaxing and memorable weekend?  If so, we hope you will head to Spicer Castle Inn where we look forward to welcoming you to Minnesota’s beautiful central lakes region.
