The Castle Inn Riverside is a feeling of warmth and hospitality greets one in our Grand Foyer, with its aire of graceful elegance. The high ceilings, the spaciousness, the 275 year-old staircase which was imported from London, and the 700 year-old Grecian fireplace culminate in history and hospitality.
Notice the imported Spanish Chevalier lamps which adorn the newel posts of the British staircase. Also of interest are the pieces of hand carved oak fretwork above the turret entry and in the main hallway, which were carved by a prisoner in an Irish debtors’ prison who earned his way to freedom with his craftsmanship of woodcarving. With music from the grand piano filtering into the Foyer from the adjoining Parlour, guests and family must have enjoyed many relaxing conversations here in times past. Present day Castle guests revel in reliving those exciting times during their visit to The Castle!
Hear the whisper of the Parlour, as it lures friends, new and old, with its handcrafted inlaid wood floors and boldness of décor. This room leaves no patience for pretense. Salmon walls and ceiling, and elegant window treatments enhance the grandeur of the antique hand carved mahogany woodwork. Rich tapestry designs and ornate carvings lend this tranquil area sophistication and ambience.
Come to the Billiards Room, where the games of chance and skill are mere echoes of the past. Today there are no winners or losers, only friends enjoying the company of one another. The panoramic vistas of scenery afforded by the view from the balcony make this a most popular place for spending leisure time. Imagine yourself watching a wintry snowfall before the Spanish fireplace with someone you love.
And, if it is solitude and quiet that beckon, visit the Library, once the home of volumes of history, poetry, and literature. As a guest at The Castle, you may lose yourself in the pages of yesterday, or learn from the technology of today as you enjoy a book or video from the antique cherry wood bookcases.
Like the families before them, the Lowrys’ had a dream of making The Castle their home, but their dream became much larger. Now they share The Castle’s beauty and history with everyone possible. So, Salve! Or, Welcome to The Historic Campbell Castle!
