With 158 years of history and legendary tales of ghosts and spirits that only accentuate the natural energy of the property, Beardslee Castle is a perfect setting for any event.

Built by Augustus Beardslee in 1860 with the craftmanship of masons from Ireland and Switzerland, the limestone building is built in the style of an Irish castle. The building has suffered two major fires, the first in 1919 nearly destroyed the building and much of the stonework needed to be reworked. The oak panelled floors and ceilings were completely redone as nothing was left but the stone shell. A fire in 1989 gutted the kitchen areas and the building was left vacant for 3 years. After a two year restoration the restaurant reopend in 1994 under the present ownership.



Downstairs at the Castle,  THE DUNGEON is a cozy  Bar & Grill featuring a casual menu during dinner hours.  After hours it's a great place for a drink, a game of pool or relaxing at the 20 ft long copper-top bar.

The 'wine room', a gated 'cell', with  hand painted vine mural ceiling, is a great spot for an intimate dinner.


For the Beer lover, the Dungeon is an endless buffet of hoppy happiness!   The List changes all the time but averages about 125 selections including rare and highly rated brews.   Here is Our Beer List


 


There's no better setting for a fairy tale wedding.  A 158 year old restored Irish-styled stone castle,  8 acres of beautiful grounds, a spacious, airy banquet room with 20 arching floor to ceiling plate glass windows. 

A wide variety of menus are offered and the service is superb.   Personalized planning with our wedding coordinators Lynn Brown (owner) and Jennifer Leskovar (24 years at the Castle) assure an event that will be wonderful and memorable.

It's going to be one heck of a Christmas Eve figuring out who's been naughty or nice.
