  • This was my first time here. I had a great time with my mom, my 14 year old sister, and my 7 year old daughter. It was beautiful!! My daughter's favorites were the trains (of course) and the slide and toy trains, and the horse carriages. The gift shop was beautiful and had lots of cool stuff to look through. The flowers in all the gardens were amazing!The staff were very nice and friendly and the place was very clean. ( restrooms included) The details were awesome.... so much to look at.
  • Fun self-tour experience. Worth doing once for the cost, but no need to return regularly unless for a special event. Nicely maintained gardens. Beautiful castle. Friendly staff.
  • Went to a wedding and reception here. The grounds are lovely. The food was delicious, good service, great atmosphere. Everyone really enjoyed this venue.
  • We hired a private tour and transportation company (Northern Michigan Wine & Beer Tours) to take our group of Executives around Petoskey and Charlevoix area to visit the different wineries. Our driver, Mike, showed up with a great big warm smile and a brand new limo/van, one tall enough so that people 6 feet and taller can stand up in. it was awesome. It made for a very visible (big windows to look outside) and comfortable ride. Mike told us about the area, very knowledgeable being a resident for over 25 years here, and was just great fun to engage with during our tour. He took us to the Castle, our first stop, and what a castle! Here in Northern Michigan you would never expect to see such a thing, but it does exist and it is a must see. Jessica, the director (I think), greeted us and informed us of its history before we began our tour. The history of its beginnings and the lady who made it what it is today gave us each a lesson on what it takes to grow wealth. You need to be at the right time and the right place, you need perseverance through the difficult times, and you need a vision that even through the foggiest moments or days/weeks/months cannot be stolen from you. This was a perfect stop to begin our wine tour. It's a perfect place for gatherings, meetings and weddings as the grounds are gorgeous and meticulously kept. It's a photographer's dream also as photo opps here are terrific. The gift shop has a lot of unique things. We found a dragon's goblet to drink out of (about 12 inches tall) ornate with lots of detail, quality made. To match it, we bought a dragon's door bell chime, one you manually tap (made of metal and about 12 inches tall). Overall, very well worth the stop, we could have spent more time exploring, but had to get on our way before the vineyards closed for the day.
  • Beautiful ground, but pretty boring. Walked into a lot of pre set wedding halls. Learned more googling the history of the farm than Loeb family than any information provided. Definitely not worth the admission fee.
