                  About the owner: Please contact Mitch King for rates and availability.

                  Why the Owner Chose Palmyra:
                  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...

                  The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
                  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.
