This was my third time visiting Singer Castle, and it was just as interesting this time as it was then first time. A worthwhile place to see!

We took a boat to Singer Castle and had a guided tour through the castle and grounds. Amazing architecture and furnishings. Wonderful history on the early 1900s and the family that ran the Singer sewing machine co. Highly recommend. Gorgeous.

Singer Castle was beautiful despite some well worn carpets and wallpaper. It has such charm. There is a knight in armor as you enter the castle and there are many secret passageways! Our guide was really excellent, though rushed. Our tour group could only stay...More

We visited Singer Castle through an Uncle Sam's boat tour. We enjoyed the tour - it's a fun castle with a good tour guide. The castle was designed based on a book, and so has many of the fun touches that real castles may not,...More

The castle is frozen in time! The tour was about an hour, very detailed and informative. They've done a wonderful job preserving the castle and its original furnishings. It's definitely worth going!
