This Castle is one of my Personal Residents, and by far my favorite. All the wood floors, cabinets, moldings,etc. were handmade and milled on sight, from wood taken from trees of this Forest!. With the four seasons the Forest is constantly ever changing its beauty. The Castle is secluded and private. It is my Place for peace and tranquility...

Wonderful place to Fish, Hike, Mushroom hunt, Rock Hunt, Star gaze, relax, BBQ out, or just be lazy. There is endless opportunities to entertain Yourself, Family, and Friends.

The Castle Palmyra,IL

We had a great family vacation at the Castle. There were 8 adults and 7 children ranging in age of 9 months to 17 years old. With the help of the Gator that we took, my husband who has COPD, could also enjoy the outside activities. The baby could stay on schedule with naps and feedings. The grandchildren caught enough fish for a fish fry. The pontoon boat, sand beach, tree swing, hammock, bridge over the water, massage chair, game tables, and movie room were favorites. We all appreciated the Castle atmosphere. We were not aware however, that there were only beds to sleep 12. Next time we will take air mattresses to better accommodate the kids. Debbie was a great help in this matter. She also mailed to us an item that we had lost. She was great! Our family vacation was fantastic at the Castle, and I recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing vacation by the water.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5
We had a very good time, relaxing and fun. I would say the highlights are the pontoon boat and the massage chair. The outside sitting area is excellent. We went with our families including grand kids. Except when sleeping, kids were out in the backyard the whole time. We loved the out doors, the deck. One point I would like to mention is that, the castle address was not available on the website. It should be included on the website.

Owner's Response: The reason for not putting the address on the site, is for the privacy of the guest. Otherwise people will drive by the Castle just to look, and disturb the guest. Also, only the serious inquiries will actually have the physical address... Privacy Please... :)

I would highly recommend this castle setting. The kitchen layout easily accommodates a large group of people. We cooked out on the grill one nite and then had a candle lite dinner.Another nite we lit a fire in the pit and roasted marshmallows and made s'mores. Everyone in our group of 15 was very happy and commented about coming back again. Debbie was most helpful to us and even took time to take pictures. Lee. July 3. 2014

Fun Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had 11 adults and 13 children enjoy this wonderful getaway. There was so much to do for the kids-swimming, fishing, playing ball in the yard, hiking, and catching little frogs. Fishing on the pontoon boat was a favorite among the kids. I was expecting a nice easy stroll when we went on the hike and was pleasantly surprised that the hike was full of little obstacles that the kids found challenging and loved.

There was plenty of room for everyone, and the big tv room above the carport/garage area was perfect for the kids. I think we had 8 kids sleeping comfortably in there.

The castle had everything we needed to enjoy a nice, relaxing vacation. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Experience, Beautiful Place!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time at the castle. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The entire place was so comfortable it felt like home. There was always something new to discover or a comfortable quiet place to sneak away. Time feels like it is at a stand still while you stay. Even our short visit was extremely rejuvenating and relaxing. We highly recommend this property!

Thank you Mitch and family for welcoming us and allowing us to have our special day at your wonderful home. Thanks Debbie for going above and beyond to ensure that we had everything we could possibly need! The weekend could not have been more perfect!

PS. Make sure to take the massage chair in the master bedroom for a spin!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I threw a bachelor party at the castle. We were done with the days of all night parties and wanted something relaxing, low key, but still plenty to do. Well, this is the place! Beautiful! To top it all off we had a pig roast from the same place as one of the photos on the listing. It was well worth the money! We probably had 30 lbs of meat left over! Thanks Mitch for trusting us to use your home! :-)
