October 28, 2009 by SpicerCastle

This Halloween you can dress up in a costume, act silly,  laugh out-loud and enjoy great food in our hilarious interactive Murder Mystery Dinner offered Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 8:00 pm.  Let’s get excited about the idea of having fun,  like we did when we were young!   I remember Halloween as a night filled with friends, fun and acting silly. One of my fondest Halloween memories is when we were living in a remote mining town in Indonesia  where Halloween was unheard of.  My mother wanted my brother and I to have fun, and she knew I enjoyed trick or treating,  somehow my mom informed the towns people of this American tradition and that night in the rain, wearing my witch costume that my mom had dyed black with hair dye , I left a trial of black bubbles where ever I went trick or treating, laughing and having a great time.

This Halloween get your family and friends together and make it a MN weekend getaway at our unusual bed and breakfast inn with 17 guestrooms, several of which features a double whirlpool tub and fireplace.  Save on lodging with our $99 last minute deal that includes afternoon tea, one nights lodging (excluding John’s  Cottage or Raymond’s Cabin) and a four-course breakfast.  Sit by the bonfire telling tales and making s’mores.

Things to do in our area: visit our local winery, Glacial Ridge Winery, dress in a costume, go for a haunted hayride, sample wines and have fun at the Wicked Party on Friday, October 30th. Before you head out for an evening of fun enjoy a wonderful Wood Fire Dinner seated in our lakeside dining room.  Stroll through the Willmar Jaycees Haunted House, visit Long Lake Antiques, Sibley State Park, Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center, Three Sisters Amish Furniture Store, Mill Pond Mercantile, Bead Jam Store, Twin Spin Cinema or the Bison Ranch.

Spicer, MN ~ Fourth of July celebration at Spicer Castle Inn

June 30, 2009 by SpicerCastle

It’s finally here – the Fourth of July Celebration!  For me this brings back memories from my childhood of the Spicer Parade and all the festivities during the day with the spectacular fireworks over beautiful Green Lake at dusk.  Equally important is to give thanks to those brave people who serve in our armed forces and their families.

If you have never been to Spicer over the Fourth of July - then this is your year!  Afterall you made it through another Minnesota winter and you deserve a fun getaway in the summer sun.
