We (a group of 24 -- 12 adults and 12 children ranging in age from 15 years old to 6-month-old twins) had an amazing time at the Castino Mansion this past summer. Believe it or not, the mansion is more beautiful than it is on the website. And it is absolutely, spotlessly clean -- no small feat given its size and Victorian-style decor. We all felt like we stepped onto a movie set -- or a life-sized replica of the mansion in the game of Clue! It is located just across the street from a lovely, uncrowded public beach where we all enjoyed swimming and strolling. The patio (with a grill) was perfect for our nightly outdoor dinners. Even with everyone in the house -- and most of the kids in the supremely well-appointed game room in the basement -- you could find a quiet place to read, rest, or just take in the wonderful Lake Michigan view. Needless to say, I recommend this home wholeheartedly.
