This was neat to see that one man built all this, and from my husband's Builders perspective eyes it was intriguing. We felt like it was run-down, in need of some cleaning and clean up. and I didn't really like the way they had their...More

We toured the Loveland Castle and was simply amazed by the work completed by one man, over his lifetime. Such determination! It was very cool to watch the video and see and listen to Harry Andrews talk about building the castle. There are 3 levels...More

Amazing dedication and hard work to build a castle. The tour is worth an hour of time witness the results of a lot of hard work by a few (mostly one) individual. I would consider it a side trip, but a good side trip.

Military and veterans get in free. Cost is $5 normally. If you have never been you should go and check out this unique stateside castle. It’s nothing compared to European castles but it was built by one guy which is quite a story.

The story behind Loveland Castle and the man who built it is an amazing one! Harry Andrews built this castle by himself, by hand, over the course of 50 years out of stones that he collected from the nearby Little Miami River. The castle is...More

I think they are allowed on the grounds but not in the castle.
