End of Summer Savings at Spicer Castle Inn

August 24, 2010 by SpicerCastle

Summer in Minnesota is almost over and many of you have yet to take a vacation.  May I suggest a night or two at our Historic Inn and Restaurant located on the shores of beautiful Green Lake in Spicer, MN.  Stay with us Thursday, August 26th or Friday, August 27th and not only get a deal on your room but also a certificate to our restaurant or dinner cruise.    Enjoy a 20% lodging discount along with a $25.00 certificate to our restaurant or dinner cruise.

In the evening relax as you sit  by the bonfire overlooking spectacular Green Lake while you roast marshmallows, make smores and tell tales.   Be sure to bring your camera to remember the magnificent sunset over Green Lake.

Later on enjoy a glass of wine while soaking in a double whirlpool tub and if the night is cool, watch the flames dance in the fireplace.  Sleep peacefully in a cozy bed and awaken to a hearty breakfast.
