  • My Wedding

    "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!"

Saw many freighters and enjoyed the beautiful view of Lake Huron. We will definitely be back! Thanks Gale!!"

  • Awesome Vacation!

    "This was a wonderful vacation. The house is very comfortable and well stocked, the location is beyond gorgeous. Fishing from around the house was alot of fun. We caught perch, large, small mouth bass, rock bass, large mouth bass, large pike and some very healthy sunfish. The owners are so nice and you need not worry about seeing them to much, I think they work to be invisible! Their 2 dogs, Bugsy and Rascal are very sweet. We used the pedal boat and had a blast, caught some good fish out of that. The boat wells are very safe, we had very high winds one day and our boat was very protected. We chose to have all our meals at the house, just didn't want to leave. Very easy to take ferry and run to Krogers which was very close. Great donuts at Weavers Market. We are already planning our next trip there. This was one of those vacations that you just didn't want to leave. Can't leave out the amazing sunsets!"
