Ravenloft Castle. Sitting high on a dark hillside outside of a town in Upstate New York, Ravenloft Castle looks like it escaped from the pages of Grimm’s fairy tales. With Gothic windows, turrets, towers, steep parapeted roofs, crumbling walls & a courtyard overgrown with shrubs & trees, Ravenloft Castle has been a source of stories for almost 100 years. Design of the castle is thought to have been inspired by late 19th cen. medieval European castles in Scotland.
