Visitor Tips and News About Solomon's Castle
Fascinated by this quirky place. Don't miss the 90 stained glass windows, the boat in the moat, and the Alishmo. Had a delicious salad and the best apple crisp ever at the restaurant.[Traveling Girl, 04/29/2011]
Love Solomon's Castle! His collection of art is interesting and unusual. The castle is extra special because Solomon is a born "recycler," and was using recycled objects before it was popular to do so. He is also fun to talk to and has a great personality.[Mary, 07/30/2010]
Nice way to spend some time. Solomon is a very talented, imaginative, skillful, gentle, and funny character. Lots to laugh about while touring the castle (mostly a tour of his wacky art made from metal and/or wood). We thought the $10 tour was worth it, but it is an interesting place even without the tour. As stated, the food is great (at least get dessert).[Mike, 03/19/2010]
"Hard to photograph"... I am in the process of photographing the castle as we speak, and I'm of a different opinion.[Larry Deamud sunsetphotos.net, 06/17/2009]
Hey, that castle looks great! How'd you do that -- by waiting until sunset?
