Road Trip Worthy: Herreshoff Castle in Marblehead
This picturesque castle is actually only a two-hour car ride away!
No, this is not a shooting location for Game of Thrones. Herreshoff Castle is actually in Marblehead, MA that was built in the 1920s by Waldo Ballard. It was beautifully inspired by the 10th-century Viking castle of "Erik the Red."
According to Only In Your State, the "charming castle carriage house has been converted to a bed and breakfast fit for a lord or lady. The two-story stone structure has a private entrance, kitchen, bathroom, sitting room and bedroom. Beautiful Gothic doors and stained glass are found throughout, and antique suits of armor and carousel horses add an enchanting touch of the whimsical. The castle overlooks the water, guests will be in walking distance of town. Locals often speak of a secret stairway and dungeon built into the castle by Ballard, but no guests thus far have been able to uncover the truth. Perhaps you’ll be the first!"
If you're anything like me and totally into Game of Thrones, this sounds like the perfect road trip with your fellow GoT lovers and the best chance to take an epic Insta photo.
