This three story dream home with atrium is the perfect oasis for a family gathering, group retreat,romantic getaway, or just a place to get away. 4500 square feet on over 3 acres of property. Featuring a gourmet kitchen, family room, informal and formal dining room. Reading room, sunroom, full lower level, plus a three level atrium. Grand player piano. Deck overlooking panoramic views of the river. Breathtaking views from all rooms. Gazebo, walkways, and bridge add to the beautiful picturesque grounds.

Family Setting -NO PARTYING OR EVENT RENTALS- This is NOT an event center.

I want to make sure all my guests are aware that the main house DOES NOT have air conditioning. The house has attic fans and several portable fans. Our guests have not complained in the past. The house is in a wooded area on the water so it stays comfortable. If the weather got into the 90's then it could be uncomfortable but that is usually not the case it our part of Michigan.

The pool is not heated but gets direct sunlight all day. Pool is open Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Check-In time is 3:00 PM on day of arrival. Check-Out time is 1:00 PM on day of departure.

Please do not contact me and ask for a reduced rate. Our prices are set and I don't want to negotiate with guests. Thank you for understanding.

Our little slice of Heaven for a week!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing & relaxing get away. The house with was large enough to accomidate 12 people, and we never felt crowded. Tha character of the house enveloped us and it felt like home. The pool was a welcome addition to the summer heat. The owner of the house was so wonderful and accomidating! Anything we forgot or needed was brought to us. I would love to comeback!

Castle of memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 ( 6 adults and 4 children) had an awesome weekend making memories at the Castle! Everything was clean and well stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen, bedrooms and baths. The grounds are beautiful and the pool was a big hit with the kids young and old! We were a little concerned with not having air conditioning but found the exhaust fans and room fans worked just fine.....might be an issue if the weather had been in the upper 80's and humid for several days in a row. There are also some repairs needed on the deck and railings but overall the property looks to be well maintained. A new roof had just been installed before we arrived. We give this one a thumbs up!

Good place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a family reunion for 10. Plenty of room for both group discussions and private 'get-away' spaces. A very unusual house apparently built for the house and property to provide multiple settings for 'staging' wedding photos. Beautiful grounds. Very nice swimming pool. Without air conditioning can get warm by the end of the day if the two powerful roof fans are not kept active. Cools down at night. Thanks for providing us a very enjoyable week!
