Getaway and Play! The Castle at Swan Lake The anticipated opening of the Castle has finally happened. After 10 long years of setbacks and sitting vacant three partners, Bob Pomeroy, Jacqueline Brooks and UMC Financial, bought the majestic castle and created a unique resort hotel for vacationers to the area. Jacqueline Brooks, manager and co-partner, says it’s now fit for royalty. Each suite boasts a full kitchen with all the luxuries and a private balcony. Even the mattresses by Hypnos are labeled ‘by appointment to her majesty Queen Elizabeth II’. There are a total of 44 suites separated by a courtyard with a heated swimming pool and hot tub which will also boast a pool bar. The hotel will be home to a full restaurant and banquet room (under construction until June 2015) in the top of south turret of the Castle offering incredible views. “One of the features that sets us apart is that we are the only hotel in Vernon to offer a lake view and the quality of construction effectively negates any noise from the highway separating our hotel from the lake. A grand opening is being planned for summer, but meanwhile the Castle is open to the curious for tours and is already taking guests,” says Jacqueline.

A beautiful 44 suite resort offering luxurious amenities. Just minutes from Vernon and Armstrong, on Hwy 97 overlooking Swan Lake. Whether it’s business or pleasure The Castle will exceed your expectations.
