Fall is a beautiful season and the splendor of the sunsets across Green Lake was the reason John Spicer selected this location to build his lake home.  There are 18 guestrooms, several with double whirlpool tubs and showers, fireplaces, coffeemakers, refirgerators and microwaves.  Afternoon tea and a four-course breakfast are included with your stay.

Looking for something to do?  Go biking or walking on the paved trails, don’t want to bring your bike, rent one at the nearby Spicer Bike & Sports.  Visit Sibley State Park   or try your luck at mini golf at the Big Kahuna Fun Park. Sit by the shore and read a good book, check out the local Glacial Ridge Winery, go canoeing along the shore of Green Lake, try your luck at shore fishing, shop at the nearby stores or catch a movie at the Twin Spin Cinema to name a few of the many things to do in our area.

Spicer, MN ~ Spicer Castle Inn Baby Shower

June 1, 2009 by SpicerCastle

We are so fortunate to have a wonderful staff that works hard to make sure each guest is met with our gracious hospitality, clean and cozy guestrooms along with wonderful food.  So when one of our employees is expecting her first baby in a few months, it was the perfect time to host a baby shower with her family and friends.

I decided to decorate a carrot cake (her favorite flavor) with fondant babies.  By the color of the cake, I bet you can guess the sex of her new arrival.

I hope that you will consider our historic Inn on beautiful Green Lake when you have a special occasion in your family or work place.  It would be fun to create a special cake just for you.
