  • Boat in the Moat is a cute restaurant. Food was a bit on the expensive side for instant mashed potatoes and canned flavorless green beans. Staff was excellent. The castle... We wanted to see...

  • Absolutely love it! Arthur Solomon was obviously an absolute genius, a phenomenal artist in so many different mediums & techniques and a brilliant businessman. I was cycle touring through the area and saw a nondescript sign for "Solomon's Castle". On a whim, I decided to detour and check out the"aluminum castle". There was so much more than just an aluminum castle 🏰. When I arrived onto the property, I met the late Arthur Solomon's daughter, and she gave me permission to plug my gear in for recharging whilst touring the grounds and the castle. I didn't realize until later that she was his daughter, she was so humble I thought she just worked there. Stained glass windows, wooden artworks, a wooden ship that houses a restaurant, and innumerable other treasures all hand made by Arthur Solomon. And the property is still run by his family. What a tribute to a legendary man. The only thing missing, is not being able to meet the man himself, as he sadly passed away in 2016 at the age of 81. How I would have loved to have been apprenticed to a genius of that caliber. 'I make things. Arthur Sanford Solomon".
  • The castle is a very unique place. It is cool to see all the creations of Solomon including the castle he built and the boat in the moat restaurant. It is a bit pricey to walk through but you are allowed on the grounds and can eat at the restaurant without an admission charge. It is a good place for kids as well, if they like sculptures and creations out of recycled material. You can not take pictures inside the castle.
  • The castle and the grounds are beautiful. I can't remember the name of our tour guide, but he was amazing. Don't skip the walk along the creek. Knocking one star because lunch was mediocre (wait staff was great). But a BLT should have real bacon, not the tiny precooked (and half frozen) microwave strips of fake bacon.
  • Had a wonderful day trip outing, Visiting Solomon's Castle. Walked around the premises, took in the beautiful scenery and enjoyed a nice tranquil dinner on the Boat on the Moat. The staff was friendly and they even have a cute little gift shop. All in all a Very inspirational destination.
  • I mean, open your aperture and be willing to do something COMPLETELY different. Be ready to drive to the middle of nowhere, then another 45 minutes past that. The experience was quirky, whimsical, once in a lifetime, and also a nice little weekend event to do as a family. Once is enough, so do everything the first time you go, and have lunch to drive the experience home. Bring cash. Buy a souvenir so you remember the day (I recommend Christmas ornaments).
