I have always wanted to stay in Cinderella's castle but of course, that just won't happen. But, on Friday I actually got to be a princess for the day and we stayed in a real castle! Woohoo!
It was in a little town called Mt. Savage -
And believe it or not, back in the day this little town was the 3rd larges city in Maryland. Whew! Sure doesn't look like it now.
So here we go - Welcome to The Castle!
The entrance - which is actually the original carriage house.
And there it is....
Beautiful! It was built by a gentleman named Ramsey in 1840. He had a brick business until the depression. This is a picture of him and his wife -
We actually stayed in the Ramsey Room =)
And here's a tour of the rest of the house. Love, LOVE this place!
And every castle has to have a cat, right?! OR....catS?!
The oldest one is Gigi, LOL - I caught her sleeping on one of the beds (hehe)
and these two evidently showed up about 6 months ago. So pretty....
And I will wrap up today's post with just a few things that caught my eye -
This was an article in the Library that spoke about the renovation. Very interesting.
This is a collage of bricks made by Mr. Ramsey - this was actually the ceiling, ha!
And we aren't sure what this is but Ronnie said it looked like coral and I said it looked like a brain, lol. So....who really knows but it's definitely a conversation piece.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow. I will feature our 'Friday at Five' dinner.
