Spoon Island is, as the name implies, an island on the outskirts of Port Charles. The island is owned by Valentin Cassadine.

It was said to have been leased to the Cassadine family long ago by a Native American group.


Wyndemere is the mansion found on Spoon Island, though many refer to it as a castle. Spoon Island was originally purchased in 1989 by Ned Ashton who bought the abandoned isle from Katherine Delafield's Aunt Iona Huntington. Ned originally intended it to be a present for his fiancée Dawn Winthrop. Iona herself returned to Port Charles after realizing that long ago she had hidden plates for an old counterfeiting machine within the castle. She broke into the house, stole back the counterfeiting plates and not being able to resist temptation, began printing phony five dollar bills in Katherine's home.

After Ned's engagement with Dawn was called off, the Quartermaines leased the castle to Cesar Faison while he was under the guise of "P.K. Sinclair". Faison was in search of an alien crystal which Anna Devane had already discovered on the island. Faison then took residence on Spoon Island after tricking Scott Baldwin into selling it to him.

Cassadine ownership

After Faison was presumed dead, the island was taken over by the Cassadines when Stefan and Nikolas moved to town in 1996.

In 1997, Stefan held the traditional Cassadine Bacchanalia Ball at Wyndemere to announce his engagement to Katherine Bell, while Luke Spencer and Alexis Davis planned to use the party as a diversion to kill fellow guest Helena Cassadine. While masked, Luke loosened the railing of a parapet so that Alexis could lure the Helena into falling to her death. However it was Katherine who was killed after she fell instead. Helena then managed to take Katherine's body and gave her an experimental medicine that brought her back to life. Ironically, about a year later, Helena pushed Katherine down that very same parapet to end her life for good after Katherine and Nikolas fell in love.

In 2003, during Nikolas and Emily Cassadine's engagement party, Summer Halloway was pushed to her death by a man named Darius who was hired by Stefan Cassadine. Darius mistakenly pushed Summer to her death as Stefan had intended Emily to be the target. When one of Lorenzo Alcazar's henchman broke into Wyndemere and tried to kill Stefan, a fire broke out which left Stefan badly burned. Luke Spencer and Stefan later got into a fight with a knife, which resulted in Stefan getting stabbed. Stefan managed to whisper eerie words to Luke just before falling from the same cliff that Summer did. He died on the edge of Spoon Island after being found by Lucky Spencer.

After Stefan's death, the current resident Nikolas Cassadine announces his family is struggling in debt, forcing his aunt Alexis Davis to sell Wyndemere. However, Emily Quartermaine secretly bought it back for Nikolas as a Christmas present.

In 2004, Cody McCall was also murdered in the catacombs under Wyndemere by his former business partner, Ben.

In 2005, Wyndermere is the locale of Lucky and Elizabeth's wedding surrounded by the citizens of Port Charles, shortly after, the groom and several of the wedding party were injured in a train crash.

The Black and White Ball

In 2007, Nikolas, decided to hold a ball to celebrate his second engagement to Emily Quartermaine, as well as to honor the memory of her father Alan Quartermaine. During the ball, a storm started and stranded everyone on the island while madman Anthony Zacchara crashed the party. He injured Ric Lansing, shot Leyla Mir, and killed a servant, all while staying hidden in the shadows. Diego Alcazar later strangled the bride-to-be to death.
