“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed 31 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon here and it was such a lovely spot. The whole atmosphere was true to a castle and that time period it was meant to replicate. Not only was our host amazing in providing a scavenger hunt and costumes for some random fun, but she also provided a lovely homemade cranberry cake she made for us. The landscape outside is gorgeous, especially in the fall. My husband and I had such a wonderful time here and plan on coming back in the future.

This really was like a castle inside and out. It was a nice retreat for a mom and 2 daughters. The neighbors are close, but there is nice privacy shrubbery and we felt like we were alone enough. The castle was super clean in all areas. Every detail in decor and amenities was well though-out. There was so much to discover in every room. Everything you need to get you through your first night and morning is already there if you prefer to grab groceries on your 2nd day.

There are a lot of stairs, inside and out. Not a good spot if guests are mobility-impaired and not a good place for a rolling cooler (but can be done - we did it:) or rolling luggage.

The outdoor patio was a great place for meals, not super buggy and it was beautiful and peaceful.

The outlets and extension cords are a bit sketchy. If you are concerned, bring a power bank to charge your things.

There was not a ton to do in Elmira. The amusement park we had hoped to go to is only open after 5 on weekends and we were not there at that time. We ended up at Corning Museum of Glass, which is not far and is a great place to go.

You really don't need plans to go a lot of places. We were happy to just stay in the castle. It never got old. There was a beautiful smell, maybe from years of fireplace use? Woodsy and nice.

The owner is easily accessible via text and so nice. She's got a binder with good tips about how to care for the castle during your stay and places to go.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and had fun with the costumes. Sorry you didn't notice on the website that it was a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath house. I'll see if I can make it even clearer. Thanks for the tip. I look forward to hosting you again when you're in the area.

The property is unique, warm and inviting. The hostess, Kitty, is attentive, personable, a good communicator, and has an uncanny ability to have everything at your fingertips that you might need during a stay . The beds are comfy, kitchen stocked and cleanliness reigns. A welcome basket includes nice wine and thoughtful treats. We would highly recommend any of Kitty's properties.
