About Denise Cardaris

Both my husband and I work full time but enjoy spending time at the castle when we are able to do so. We enjoy having horses, if you like riding this is a unique place or you can just enjoy their natural beauty. This home is very unique and grand. It is a great place to have a large party, special event or a family get together.

Denise Cardaris purchased this castle in 2006

Why Denise Cardaris chose Michigan

My husband and I decided that we would like to have a farm with horses. We never thought we would find a castle. When we discovered this home, we were totally in love with it. Now we would like to share this home for people who have special events.

What makes this castle unique

Farm fresh eggs, beautiful gardens, Jacuzzi, pool, pond, running waterfalls and a wedding chapel are only a few items that make you fall in love with this property.

This is a fabulous place for family reunions, large get togethers and weddings. Events are at a different rate. This rate is for family vacation and is guest size is limited.

This home is very unique. It is beautifully decorated and spacious. There is a lot to do here at the castle. You can wake up to fresh farm eggs cooked by a great chef, sit poolside and have cocktails or take a horse back ride around the many acres that surround this private property. This home works well for special events, weddings, engagements, corporate meetings or a premiere Family get together. In the summer you can take advantage of the pool and Jacuzzi and in the fall you can take your family or friends on great Hay rides. This home speaks for itself. It is surrounded by 25 acres of trees to another 25 acres of open land for horse back riding. Horse riding lessons are available. In house chef, massage therapist are only a few luxuries that will quickly make you feel at home.

Beautiful Fall Wedding

  • 5 of 5

I'm not sure how to put into words how lucky I feel to have stumbled upon this beautiful property. This is the only venue we checked out, we didn't need to see anything else. My husband and I were married here on 9/26/15 and we spent the weekend here. Denise and her team are absolutely amazing. Denise was always quick to respond, incredibly personable, and never made me feel like a burden. Julie was incredibly attentive and made sure everything looked great every day. Julie met us at the castle when we went to check it out and between her and the setting we were blown away. Their helpers for the day of along with DJ Steve, Kurt, and Faulkner's Catering (what I saw as the Inner Circle team) all came together and helped us make the day better than I could have ever imagined.

The home is beautiful inside and made a gorgeous backdrop for the rehearsal, rehearsal meal, getting ready the day of, and reflecting on the wedding on Sunday morning. I woke up Saturday morning with my team of girls and walked the property to 'visit' the horses up front and the goats and chickens and Mr. Pea in the back all while enjoying a hot cup of coffee.

The pool was great and the hot tub was even better. I'm pretty sure we were up until 5am the night of the wedding just relaxing with drinks and the few leftover guests we allowed to stay and relax with us. Julie keeps it extremely clean and the temperature was perfect. She was a silent helper as we didn't even realize she was there to turn on the hot tub and turn it off.

Denise, Julie, and their helpers were awesome at helping us set everything up on Saturday. I set up one table with a centerpiece and they put out the rest and it looked perfect. They made sure all candles and LED lights were lit once it started to get dark out and helped to clean them all up at the end of the night. They helped keep the day running smoothly and without a hitch! At least none that I was aware of.

My guests were all impressed and in awe. The girls in the bridal party and the hairdressers loved the opportunity to stay in the castle and get ready there.

We hate to admit that it's all over, and I think that's the reason for delay in my review. I hope we get the opportunity to return soon. I know some of my family is excited to return and spend some time there with us as well.

The short of it? Fairy-tale setting, gorgeous photos, incredible atmosphere, amazing down to earth staff... 10/10 I'd do it all over again.

Weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to unwind with friends and family. This is a beautifully decorated house, with an even better exterior, with plenty of hang-out places. Denise is wonderfully accomodating and is prompt in her replies and Julie is always available to help out in any situation, being just minutes away, if needed.

Parents and teenage kids - all of us had a great time.

Incredibly Thankful!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Denise (owner) and Julie (groundskeeper/problem solver extraordinaire)! My husband Steve and I were married at the castle on October 4th - unfortunately the weather was a bit challenging... we had rain leading up to the wedding and cold temperatures. Julie helped to ensure the grounds were beautiful for our wedding, helping to fix the large muddy areas that the rain caused. Despite the weather challenges, we had an incredible experience at the castle. From the moment we met Denise, we knew this was the place we wanted to get married. The entire experience was so special to us and we could not be happier with how it all worked out. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and with our families, what an amazing way to begin our lives together!

My Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We are blessed to have had our wedding at the castle! Not only is the homeowner and property manager so friendly and helpful, they go above and beyond to help out with every detail to make your day perfect. It's the most beautiful location and a very unique place to have your wedding if you don't want the typical banquet hall wedding. We can't wait to return and rent the castle again for our anniversary!

Sue: Girl's Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Once again I am impressed with the peace and tranquility that this venue provides. Our yearly getaway/vacation for faraway friends was wonderful. The castle is beautifully decorated and well equipped. We were not too far from "civilization" in case we forgot to pack something. The property is well maintained, clean rooms and bathrooms/linens. The new chapel is truly beautiful certainly worth looking into for wedding plans. I could not be more pleased with our stay! The fireplace at the hot tub is awesome and the new lights give a festive appearance! As in the past, I was sorry to leave and cannot wait to come back next year!
