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.

Awesome place!

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! :-)

We stayed at the castle for our last family reunion and each chose characters from Medieval times. It was a blast and so easy to imagine we were really back in those times...but a lot more comfortable!

Fun holiday gathering!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Our extended family got together as we have been doing for about 7yrs for the holidays. Many are relatives we only see once a year and the family keeps growing. The Castle was a great place to stay because it was centrally located for the different family groups around the Midwest. First thing, the Castle was huge! There was plenty of space to move around. The cooking area was really large and everything very well stocked with cook wear and even a large number of pantry items. We always bring our own food to cook and there were plenty of cooking burners and ovens/microwave to do so. There was definitely a lot to look at even with the short amount of time we had to visit. The kids loved it! The rooms individually were very quiet. You don't have to worry about the "late-nighters" keeping you up or being woke up before you'd like in the morning. All of the rooms were huge and very well supplied with anything you need. There were A LOT of amenities we simply did not have time to use because of our short stay. The only issues we had were the fact that each of the five Bedrooms had only one big bed. There would be a lot of sleeping on air mattresses as a result. There was a TV room with a pullout sofa and room for air mattresses. But, for our families, we basically just use them to sleep and little ones to nap. Otherwise, we are out in the main family/kitchen area. We also had problems with the fireplace, but I think it was due to the wet firewood, and you pretty much could not make any cell calls unless standing outside. They do have a landline that is outgoing only. It's a nice break from the working environment! For a winter stay it was very nice because even though you may have to stay inside, it has a very cozy feel with fireplaces, a hot tub and sauna. It was always warm enough inside and there were a lot of things in the Castle to enjoy as well as birds and the wonderful view outside. Mitch was very easy to work with and Debbie was wonderful about making sure we had everything set for the weekend. The Castle is a beautiful piece of architecture! It is solidly build with beautiful hardwoods, heavy doors, slate countertops and lots of artwork. I was just in awe of the way it was built and it's uniqueness. I would definitely recommend it for a winter stay.
