Open year round, Castle Farms is one of Northern Michigan's top historic attractions, as well as one of the Midwest's premier wedding venues. Visitors can stroll throughout the magnificent stone buildings dating back to 1918, and enjoy gorgeous gardens. A variety of museum quality collections featuring castles, antique toys, and royalty memorabilia from around the world are displayed throughout the buildings. The Castle's 1918 Museum showcases items from that time era, plus World War I memorabilia. Children delight in feeding the huge rainbow trout swimming in the Reflection Pond, playing a game of giant chess, or hide-and-seek with the fairies and gnomes dwelling in the Enchanted Forest. Our Self-Guided Tours offer Scavenger Hunt tours for children, too! Everyone loves The Castle's Garden Railroad; with more than 1/2 mile of track and 68 G-scale trains, it's one of the largest in the State. Listed on both the National and State Historic Registries, Castle Farms is a world-class historic property where old world charm and modern-day elegance enchant visitors of all ages.

My daughter and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon having Tea at the Castle and wondering the the gardens. We played croquet and chess and learned proper etiquette for drinking Tea. I would highly recommend this event at Castle Farms.

We loved exploring Castle Farms on a chilly day in summer! Lots of things for the kids to explore on a self-guided tour. The trains and gardens were an unexpected treat! This is worth the visit!

Had a great time walking through the garden and castle. Kids liked the chess game and the miniature train area. Beautiful architecture and grounds. My favorite part was the garden wall.
