The New and Improved Silversmith House!

A few months ago I wrote about the improvements and upgrades we planned to make at Ravenwood Castle this winter. The biggest of the planned changes is the introduction of the Huntsman’s Hollow cabins, which are being set up as we speak.

We’ve talked a lot about the Huntsman’s Hollow, but we’ve also been working on another huge improvement that we’ve kept under wraps. We’re excited to announce the complete renovation of the Silversmith House!

Bristling with towers, turrets and conical roofs, the Silversmith is the centerpiece of the Medieval Village. It features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a heart shaped whirlpool tub, and decks (that’s right, two!) overlooking both the village and the woods.

We had planned to make some minor renovations to the cottage over the winter. But as I’m sure you know by now, we don’t do anything small here at Ravenwood Castle. So we ended up taking the Silversmith out of service for nearly six weeks, and have completely rebuilt it from the inside out!

The renovation includes all new paint and décor throughout the cottage. We have installed all new flooring, carpeting in the bedrooms and wood in the main sitting room. The kitchen has been completely redone as well. We also brought in new furniture, including a new kitchen table and chairs, comfy leather chairs in the living room, and a great leather couch in the upstairs sitting area. Perhaps most exciting for those who have stayed in the Silversmith before, we’ve replaced the privacy curtain in the upstairs bathroom with an actual door!

We will have some great new photographs of the Silversmith when the guys from Jumping Rocks Photography visit this summer. In the meantime here are a few snapshots to give you a taste.

But don’t take our word for it, come on out and see this beautifully redone cabin for yourself!
