Castles In Michigan

June 14, 2020

Are there any castle-themed places in Michigan?

We’ve already taken a virtual visit to some of the most majestic castles in Michigan, but there are other fairy tale places with castle-like atmospheres. Check out Bavarian Inn Lodge in Frankenmuth… the surrounding community is right out of an old European fairytale. You can grab a meal at The Whitney, which is an old school mansion that might as well be a real life castle.

What are the most charming small towns in Michigan?

The Great Lakes State is full of stunning small towns that are every bit as fairytale-fabulous as the eight castles listed above. Check out some of the most charming towns in Michigan like Crystal Falls, Marshall, and Monroe are all communities that feel downright provincial.

What are the most beautiful churches in Michigan?

Next to castles, churches are often exquisite examples of Gothic architecture and Old World charm. St. Mary Catholic Church is one of many local churches that feels like a castle, and St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church features stained glass that’s downright brilliant. You can take a tour of beautiful churches in a smaller climate like Detroit, too — there’s plenty to do there.
