  • It is a beautiful home, and we had a great tour. The people who work there were a great help also. The tour was well worth it.
  • Beautiful old house. Toured it with Girl Scouts and our tour guide was amazing with the little girls! The Princess and Prince tea party was so fun.
  • Such a unique inn, outside and in. So much fun exploring the rooms. Stayed in the tibetan room, with painted ceiling and led lights. Antique fixtures. Hope they are able to raise the money for repairs and new roof to keep it running, as their really isn't locations like this in Michigan left. Beautiful!
  • Henderson Castle is a once in a lifetime experience! We have stayed for anniversaries had dinners and breakfasts at the castle! It is one of our favorite places! Even though its in the heart of Kalamazoo, Francois and his staff make you feel like you are on a European getaway!
  • Our experienced was mixed. The gardens and grounds were beautiful, the breakfast was good and was very fresh. The Castle had some beautiful details, like ornate woodwork and leaded glass windows. Our room was simple but cute and generally clean. However, when my boyfriend booked the room, the confirmation said we'd be in the Tibetan room at the Castle. When we checked in, we were informed we'd be in a different room at the guesthouse across the street (though the nightly rate was the same). We did not read reviews of the Castle beforehand – had we, we would've learned that this seems to happen regularly and without any recourse. Reviews of the Castle seemed pretty mixed and my boyfriend and I wonder if this may be due to the different experiences of guests staying in the main castle building vs. the guesthouse. The castle is on a big steep hill... the guesthouse is down the hill, across the street in a residential neighborhood. The staff repeatedly reassured us that we would have access to all the same amenities as guests in the main building. It was beautiful outdoors during our stay so the walk wasn't bad and we were able to take a short cut climbing up the hill rather than walking around to the road, but this wasn't what we were expecting and it would've been an unpleasant walk if it had been cold or rainy out and unlike the guests staying in the Castle, we couldn't saunter down to breakfast in our PJs. Parking at the guesthouse is also very limited and parking on the street is prohibited overnight. The guesthouse is a historic house but it seemed a bit run down (especially the kitchen) and was significantly less impressive and less fancy than the castle. Also - the website says that every room has free wifi, however, it seemed that only rooms in the Castle had free wifi, not the guesthouse. I called the front desk for help accessing the internet from our room - the staff person I spoke to provided the wifi password but when I asked which network guests could use, I was told it should have Henderson or Henderson castle in the name. No such network was available from our room. We looked around the house but couldn't find a router. When we went to breakfast the next morning, we were able to access the wifi from the main house but every room did NOT include free wifi as their website suggests. If you're interested in booking - I would suggest calling the castle directly and specifically requesting a room in the main Castle building. In general, this place seems overpriced and mismanaged and I couldn’t recommend it.
