“Wonderfully Historic & Memorable!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2011

Stopping on our way north, we spent a lovely evening there. Had great authentic Italian dinner within walking distance. Room was spacious, clean and picturesque. We enjoyed reading a couple of the numerous books available. Breakfast the next morning was scrumptious! The proprietors were warm and friendly. We would definitely return and recommend to those looking for an experience to remember.

The brick Amsterdam Castle is the former Amsterdam Armory and it's built on a grand scale, with a tower (now part of the breakfast room) and a ballroom-sized gymnasium for events. The decor is great - unique period pieces that add to the ambience. The rooms are huge, with really high ceilings and lots of space to lounge around. If you're looking for a romantic getaway, this is it!

I came to town for a birthday party and fell in love with the spacious rooms, each with a unique feeling and lay-out, each guest wing bigger than my apartment !

I heard they were up for a Preservation League of NY award this year.
Wonder if they won it?

I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts, but this is one of the most unique ones! A beautiful, historic castle transformed into a B & B? Yes please. Not only do I love that the proprietors have decided to save this castle and restore it, the castle is a wonderful place in which to stay. Huge, romantic bedrooms that still seem cozy, other fun rooms to explore and relax in, and really nice people make this place a gem.

As a local attorney, I have used the Castle to host out of town clients and guests. They have always loved the historic beauty of the building, and the modern conveniences including wireless internet. The hosts, Manfred and Susan are gracious and fun. I happily send friends and family to the Castle!

The perfect place to sleep like royalty during your Mohawk Valley adventure. Susan and Manfred have done an amazing job turning an historic upstate armory into their home and inn. Love the clean, green atmosphere. We enjoyed the organic linens and bath products. A great, and very comfortable, place to stay to get some R&R just a few hours drive from NYC.

My partner had never been to the state Capitol in Albany. So on our way to the American Hotel in Sharon Springs, we stopped off at the Amsterdam Castle. What an unexpected surprise! The rooms are spacious, and Susan and Manfred are such gracious hosts. The Castle is conveniently located to all the historic sites in Albany. This is a great start to your trip in Upstate New York and a great weekend altogether!
