As a gift to My husband, we spent one night in the Royal Suite at Singer Castle on September 18,2016. The trip started with a 10 minuet shuttle from Schermerhorn Harbor. Scott the caretaker greeted us at the dock. Although it is named Singer Castle, my husband and I prefer to call it "Scotts House" please treat it respectfully. Our...

Singer Castle was definitely beautiful, but for the price of the ticket, I felt the tour was VERY rushed and you weren't able to look at everything in the rooms. We were even told to use the bathrooms on the Uncle Sam boat just because they didn't want to wait for people to use the bathroom on the grounds. They...

This castle was beautiful inside and out. We enjoyed our guided tour throughout the castle. We booked a tour through Uncle Sam's Boat Tours and just wished we had a little more time. It was neat seeing the hidden passage ways.

My wife and I spent an overnight at Singer Castle to celebrate both my 80th birthday and our 56th wedding anniversary. We could not have made a better choice. It was a very unique experience; and amazing to have an entire castle/mansion all to ourselves. Scott, the caretaker, was a most efficient and knowledgeable host. Everything was made to make...

This is a great get-a-way vacation spot. The tour is a great look into the life style of the day. The staff was not to be seen by the guest. How do you do that. Secret passageways are through out the house. There is even a secret observation spy hole over the dinning room so that the owner could over...

My wife and I spent a wonderful evening as king and queen of the castle. If you want to get a glimpse of how the ultra rich lived at the turn-of-the-century, Singer castle is a must stay the multi hour private tour after all the tourists left and then given full run of the castle for the evening are a...

The castle was built based on a book the owner read. It has lots of passageways throughout the castle so the servants could move about unseen by the owner and his guests. Seems weird that you would want people waiting on you but hiding behind secret peepholes and doors watching you for a signal to come do your bidding. I...
