Savor the freshly made breakfasts provided by the Castle’s chef, and pick up a jar of raw honey, harvested by our beekeeper right on property, as a take-home souvenir.

Historic Charm

Castle in the Country is well named because our front guest house boasts the beauty of a true Queen Anne Victorian. This gem was built over a century ago for a Pennsylvania businessman who was a wealthy railroad vice president. With the warmth of quarter-sawn oak throughout the entire three-story building and amazing architectural features like five-panel pocket doors, an eight-sided turret and a wide wrap around porch, there’s plenty of ambiance to charm those who love everything historic.


Look no further than our own property for adventure. Castle in the Country offers three miles of walking trails through beautiful woods filled with wildlife. Enjoy a relaxing kayak or paddleboat ride around our private 80-acre lake. Speed things up a notch and take advantage of our Fat Tire Bike Package, which lets you explore the property at your own speed.


Nothing says romance better than whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, couples massages, and endless opportunities to spend quality time with the one you love. Castle in the Country offers multiple packages to enhance your stay, such as picnic baskets, dinner for two, and breakfast in bed. Enjoy a romantic stroll through the woods in the spring and summer, or enjoy horse-drawn sleigh rides and appetizers in the winter. Romance is here to stay at Castle in the Country.
