Beardslee Castle might seem a bit out of place in the woods near the Adirondacks, but this fine dining establishment in the Hudson Valley offers a traditional American menu with Asian and Mediterranean influences. Built in the 1860s, the castle remained a private residence until the 1940s when it opened as "The Manor" and allowed in visitors. Beardslee opened in its current incarnation in 1994. Soon after, reports came in of ghosts on the property and frequent sightings. In the castle's basement, patrons can find The Dungeon where you can grab a pint of local brews on tap.
