When Samuel Ruggles built his castle in 1895, he was inspired by a number of European castles he visited. One of the first things visitors see when they come to the Castle Inn is the magnificent piece of stained glass at the end of the stairway. Besides many lovely stained glass windows, the castle has other fine Old World details such as a bathroom with rose marble walls, intricate walnut furniture, and marble fixtures in one of the rooms in the tower.
The castle that Mr. Riggs built is now a charming bed and breakfast located in Circleville, Ohio about a half hour drive from downtown Columbus. While many antique furniture pieces and details remaining, the rooms in the castle are thoroughly modernized and have luxuries such as fireplaces, heart-shaped or oval Jacuzzis, private dining rooms, and sitting areas. Complimentary hot breakfast in the morning is offered to all guests. The Castle Inn is famous for their Murder Mystery nights with guests as characters.
