You just have to experience it to understand it. Shelby and Karen did a great job of accommodating our family of 6. When we arrived Shelby gave us a tour, and took the time to show us some baby owls that the kids loved. It was raining almost all day, but the kids found time to play in the turrets, and they also enjoyed the man cave. I enjoyed escaping outside at night to listen to the rain fall from the tree leaves. We were only able to stay for one night, but when we left my son Dylan was ecstatic when he found out Shelby sent a piece of meteorite home with us. He's a huge rock collector and it made his week! Shelby and Karen:. You are such gracious hosts and we will definitely be back next year for longer!

Owner's Response: We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay! Your opening statement is perfect! It is almost impossible to put into words what it is like to stay at the castle. You just have to experience it. Even with the rain, we're so happy you took advantage and enjoyed the peace and tranquility the castle offers. It was a rare treat to see those baby owls! You never know what you might see when you stay with us! We hope you will come back again and stay longer! There is so much more to enjoy not only at the castle but in the surrounding Ozarks. Between shows and dining in Branson, there are multiple golf courses in the immediate area. Silver Dollar City is just a few minutes away or take in the breathtaking Buffalo National Park! Thank you for staying with us! We look forward to seeing you again in the future! Warmest regards, Shelby and Karen

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay. Went to Branson one day, but all we wanted to do when we got there was turn around and go back to the castle!

Loved it, and so did the grandkids

  • 5 of 5

The only down fall was the mile long very, very, very bumpy road. The owners were very friendly. The castle was awesome.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay! That 1 mile stretch of road must have been absolutely awful after the terrible accident you are recovering from! We have a promise from our County Judge that the road, especially the 1 mile guests travel to reach us, will be repaired! There have been so many natural disasters in the past few months that the counties' resources have been stretched thin. We are just so sorry that after suffering those terrible injuries, traveling that 1 mile must have increased your pain. We loved hearing your grandchildren squeal with delight. And it warmed our hearts to know your granddaughter said "Best day ever!" As we are a non-profit organization, we strive to offer families a great place to stay that does not break the bank and will leave more money to vacation on! We sincerely hope you all made tons of memories not only of the castle but of your entire trip, that will be remembered and cherished forever! We hope you will return and get to enjoy even more of the beauty of the Ozarks. And hopefully you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the 1 mile of county road, without bumps! 12/5 - Noticed that some markers have been placed on the county road! Looks like improvements are on the way!

Beautiful, relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lacey Michele Castle is one of a kind. The cottage with the surrounding castle stonework is beautiful. I have never seen a place like it! It's incredibly peaceful, giving you the relaxation that most of us need.

Shelby & Karen are wonderful people. They are great host that make you feel welcomed and are always readily available with any questions you might have.

I have stayed at the castle twice now and plan on coming back many times. If you are looking for a place to get away, unwind and relax this place is perfect!

We stayed here for a romantic weekend. We love the room. We felt like we really were in a castle. The location was so close to Branson. We went hiking on the property-beautiful. Shelby and Karen we're so friendly. We only wish we'd had more time.
