We look forward to your visit in 2021!

Visitors will be greeted by smiling, enthusiastic tour guides sharing the unique history of the “hunting lodge” of Commodore Frederick Gilbert Bourne.

The tour guides will provide you with a 45-minute tour and narrative of the historic structure. Visitors will be treated to four floors filled with furnishings and artifacts original to the castle. You will see the entrances to many of the secret passages, and of course speculate on their purpose. There are 80 steps up from the Great Hall, so wear your walking shoes!

Visitors come from as far as Europe and as close as our own backyard of Chippewa Bay, all wanting to experience the mystery and history of the Castle. Plan to make Singer Castle the highlight of your 1000 Islands experience.
