Property ReviewsWrite a Review
The pirate ship (with upper level treehouse) was fabulous. Playhouse
also adorable for preschoolers.
Lake of the Woods is beautiful only a few miles away. Mahomet is a town of 7,000 but has decent restaurants -- we liked JT Walkers -- and drug stores, grocery, etc.
That drawbridge opening with fanfare playing was most impressive. It is just so cool to be in a castle, especially one designed and largely built by the guy who owns it.
I highly recommend this place for any kind of group gathering!!!
