About Mitch King

Please contact Mitch King for rates and availability.

Why Mitch King chose Palmyra

This Castle is one of my Personal Residents, and by far my favorite. It is the perfect place to meet with your family, or close friends. 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...

What makes this castle unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us stay at The Castle, Mitch. It was a great place for a family reunion.

A wonderful location for an extended family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3-generation family vacation that consisted of 9 adults and 6 children. The castle and grounds were just what we wanted! We stayed on the property for 4 days/nights and had everything we needed. We went boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, spent evenings around the fire, the kids rode bikes on the long paved driveway, there was plenty of room in the front yard for a family baseball game and a couple of water balloon fights, and the kids loved watching movies in the secret theater room. I would definitely recommend this rental for a group vacation!

Excellent, fantastical property in central/southern Illinois

  • 5 of 5

Excellent for a large group get together.

Plenty to do on the property, inside and outside.

Loved fishing on the boat, playing lawn games (we brought wiffle ball), using the basketball court.

Pro tip, there is a great paintball place nearby, Paintballtogo. We had a great time there.

Very nice kitchen, the pans were not non-stick, but otherwise great experience cooking for our whole group. Great grills as well. Would recommend bringing food to cook since there not a lot of restaurants nearby. The closest walmart is 20-25 minute drive away. There is a dollar general in town, about a 5 minute drive away.

Debbie the property manager was very responsive related to a question we had come up during our stay and she even came by the property after we spoke on the phone to check on the issue. She was very helpful.

Cell service is spotty inside the castle but is OK outside. Internet was good.

We had a wonderful time st the castle

  • 5 of 5

The castle is a unique property well suited for a great weekend away from it all. From The lavish house, to the great backyard for games and fun, to the stunning views from atop the turret, well, a good time was had by all in the group. Also to be mentioned, slow boat rides on the lake and stargazing in the professional observatory. You must stay at the castle!

Super Unique and In the Middle of Nowhere

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Castle of Palmyra, with a group of friends primarily from Chicago this past weekend. The castle is great for a long weekend get away with friends. Large kitchen and patio for entertaining, and every one found the bedrooms comfortable. Several of us even enjoyed 9 holes of golf at Terry Park. Overall I would rate our stay as excellent!

Magnificent

  • 5 of 5

Unparalleled beauty accompanied by resplendent accumens. This first class accommodation far surpassed my wildest expectations . From the mythical ambiance of the castle to the quiet solitude of the surrounding pastoral setting this destination far surpassed my wildest expectations. Our stay at this idyllic fablehaven was made even more pleasant by the interactions with the property manager.

Rental of the property for your get away is highly recommended . A good time will be had by all.
