Spicer, MN ~ Spicer Castle Inn Fall Wood Fire Dinner

September 22, 2009 by SpicerCastle

We are excited to announce our new fall Spicer Castle Inn Fall Wood Fire Dinners.  You can make your reservation just for dinner or if you are looking for a fun getaway include a night or two at our historic bed and breakfast Inn along the shores of beautiful Green Lake.  The colors are  just starting to show their autumn splendor – now is a great time to visit our Inn and enjoy the outdoors.

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.

Click here to read the menu and purchase tickets or packages with lodging rooms.

Lodging Special for any guestroom (excluding John’s Cottage and Raymond’s Cabin).  Enjoy relaxing in a double whirlpool while you watch the flames dance in the fireplace.

Looking for some laughs and great food?  Than our murder mystery dinner is just the ticket held Friday and Saturday or reserve your murder mystery lunch or dinner with a minimum of 8 guests any day of the week.

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.

I look forward to welcoming you to the Spicer Castle Inn.

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.
