LIVE IN A CASTLE FOR A WEEK-END... A WEEK... OR FOREVER!

Why stay in a cabin, when you can have your very own private, romantic castle situated on more than ten acres of gated mountain seclusion and privacy? Created and waiting--- just for you--- and that special someone.

This is truly a castle!!! It was cozy. When we entered the grounds of the castle it was like being in another world. Never seen nothing like this is NC. The inside of the castle felt so real! Very clean! My family and I stayed for the week! We saw deer and a bobcat! My family and I loved!
