Wings Castle is a bed and breakfast inside of an extraordinary castle right in the middle of the Hudson Valley in the town of Millbrook in Dutchess County, New York — and it’s located only 75 miles north of NYC.
The castle was created by NY artists Peter and Toni Ann Wing, who began building it back in 1970. Wing grew up on the dairy farm next door, which is now the Milbrook Winery (yes, a castle right next to a winery!), and he always dreamed of living in a castle. It took a whopping 47 years to complete, but was definitely worth the wait! Toni says it has become a “live-in art project.”
There are four different rooms to choose from at the castle B&B, complete with truly magical features from medieval decor to patios with the most incredible views of the mid-Hudson region.
Choose from the Annex Suite, with two private levels including a dining room and kitchen with a balcony overlooking the courtyard; the Dungeon Room, a room in the main castle with a private entrance from outside; the Chamber Room, also in the main castle with a private outside entrance; and the Cottage, an adorable fairytale cottage directly across the street from the main castle.
Guests can warm up in the Buddha Room at the fireplace or lounge inside a cave tucked away on the B&B’s property if they dare! A complimentary tour of the castle and continental breakfast each day is included in your stay.
Another fun fact? The castle was built using 80 percent recycled materials.
In addition to all the beautiful features on site and the winery next door, the charming village of Millbrook itself has a selection of wonderful restaurants, plus is full of antique shops.
The castle grounds are only accessible to guests. The rooms fill up fast so if you don’t score one this spooky season, be sure to put it on your list for next year! Reservations must be made via phone call at 845-677-9085.Find more details on their website here!
