The space
*NOTE: Your safety matters. This property features 2 exterior security cameras, above the front door and barn door, all facing outward. They do not look into interior spaces*

Master Bedroom (King Suite): King Bed | Bedroom 2 (Queen Suite): Queen Bed | Bedroom 3 (Dungeon Bunk Room): 2 Full-over-Full Bunk Beds, 2 Twin-over-Twin Bunk Beds

The entire castle is all yours! The Top Floor ‘Royal Quarters’ has 2 Master Bedroom Suites, with a king bed, and a queen bed. Each suite includes a full bathroom, designer shag blankets, and access through french doors leading to the large terrace that spans the entire length of the castle.

The turret is the best place to watch the ever changing Blue Ridge Mountain landscape. This is also where the 6-person hot tub lives!

Original art and decor can be found throughout the upstairs as well as hand plastered and abstract painted walls and ceilings. There’s a fully equipped kitchen with all the necessities you’ll need to prepare a hearty feast. We even include Starbucks coffee and a Keurig for your convenience.

Sit outside on the terrace for an al fresco dining experience and open a nice bottle of wine to sip while breathing in the fresh mountain air. Listen to the waterfall from the sweetheart pond and enjoy the views!

During downtime, unwind by the fireplace in the living room, play a game, read a book, or choose from the large selection of DVDs and VHS cassettes to watch on the flat-screen Apple TV equipped with Netflix, Hulu, Youtube and more. There’s great streaming from our fiber optic internet, WiFi included!

The Bottom Floor, also known as the ‘Dungeon Gallery Lounge,’ has the 3rd bedroom with 8 uniquely handcrafted beds - 4 full-size beds and 4 twin XL beds. The electric fireplace makes for a great moody nightlight. It’s a real one-of-a-kind experience to sleep in there! There’s 1.5 bathrooms, laundry facilities, the lounge, a secret room under the stairs, and a gallery of art.

Access the castle grounds through the moat! Guests staying for 5 or more days receive gifts from the castle that will be left on the table upon arrival!
