  • An easy day trip from Naples/Bonita Springs, we were surprised by the castle, the artwork and the classic car display. There is a large boat that serves as a restaurant; we did not eat there. The tick...  more »

  • We found this wonderful gem with an on-line search. We drove almost 2 hours and it was well worth the trip! Our tour guide was funny and kept us very entertained while giving us great details of the artist and his family. Great photo ops outside, but do not plan to take any of the artwork inside, it is not allowed. LOVED our visit.
  • The driving time with no easy route from Ft. Myers was the only drawback to the adventure! The tour of the castle was enlightening. Mr. Solomon was ahead of his time with his creative repurposing of all things! The tour guides were entertaining and fun. The lunch at the Boat in the Moat was delicious and inexpensive! Bring cash-no credit cards! A real throwback to old Florida out of the way adventures!
  • We weren't sure what to expect when we went to Solomon's Castle, and were very impressed by Mr. Solomon's work and the tour itself. The tour was very thorough and the tour guides very knowledgeable about the art. The artist/creator was so talented and it was a joy to see his work. We also toured the car area, which was very nice as well. We lunched at the restaurant in the room attached to the lighthouse - the food and atmosphere were as good as we'd read about in other reviews.
  • This place is amazing. The artwork that is displayed is incredible . To think that 1 man thought and made the castle and boat in a moat along with other things is absolutely incredible. The family and workers are very friendly and the food is homemade, lots of it and everything taste very yummy. There are tours everyday and a gift shop. But they are closed in August and September. I guess they need a vacation and time off also lol.
  • We went there today and had a great time. The artwork was amazing considering it all was made from scraps. Such talent. The tours were informative with a side of cheezy humor. The grounds were peaceful and had beautiful plants and flowers. The restaurant was good it is not a five star restaurant but good enough to fill your belly if you are hungry. We spent a good 4 hours there including lunch. I enjoyed it
