When innkeepers Ruth and Herb Boven acquired Castle in the Country in 1990 it was a run-down Victorian mansion nicknamed, "The Castle." Originally the property was built as a summer home by John H. and Caroline Wurtz in 1906. Even after years of neglect, Ruth and Herb could see the great potential in the natural hardwoods and quality materials. After careful restoration, Castle in the Country is now a stunning and romantic country bed and breakfast!

Grab a picnic lunch and dine on the dock or take in the view from the screened in porch.
