Overview
More
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.

Our son's wedding was at the Castle in December. Our family and friends had an excellent time and really enjoyed the beautiful facilities. The staff at the castle, especially Autumn were very helpful. I would definitely recommend the Castle for your family wedding.

Our group visited the Castle in November after the season when the price had been reduced. We all agreed after wondering around in a self-guided tour that we should have allotted more time. The grounds and displays were beautifully done and educational. Several events were...More
