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.

This was our first time staying at this property. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. The grandchildren loved riding bikes, hiking, fishing and exploring the castle looking for the "secret room". The pool table and the observatory was a hit for the adults (and children) to see the night sky. The highlight of our stay was having a beautiful setting for us to renew our vows by the lake and have the grandchildren be part of the ceremony.
The only difficulty we had was sleeping 13 people and spotty internet service (we were in the middle of nowhere). 5 bedrooms was not quite enough and we wish we had brought air mattresses for the children to sleep on but the listing said sleeps 21 we expected alternate accommodations to reach closer to that number.
Definitely a great place to stay and fun for all ages. Thank you for sharing your castle!
Leadership Retreat Site
This is a great place for a large group! We had a leadership retreat for our church at the castle and it met our needs well. There were about 16 of us for 4 nights. There are beds for 12 (5 bedrooms plus a pull-out queen sofa sofa bed in the "secret" room) but plenty of sofas, and space for air mattresses. The big dining room table allowed us to eat all together and other living rooms made good meeting areas. We really enjoyed fires outside in the evenings and loved using the observatory. It feels isolated and private, but being only an hour from home (Edwardsville IL) made it easy access for people to come up for meetings if they couldn't stay overnight. Debbie the property manager was very friendly, accommodating, and responsive. Cellular coverage is weak, but accessible outside. WiFi was spotty and inconsistent. Overall wonderful experience. Thank you Mitch for allowing us to rent your fantastic castle!
Just as great the second time!
This is the second time we've stayed at the castle. We have a large family with kids of all ages. There is something for everyone! The boat, the beach, the deck or the couch.....whatever your wish, it's right there. Thanks to Debbie and Mitch for another great memory!
We all had a wonderful time at the castle!
We had lots of room and many activities for all ages. Our family reunion was great! Everyone loved the castle and the accommodations were perfect for all of us. A big “Thank You” to Mitch and Debbie for a wonderful place to get together and spend time with family who live so far from one another. Everything was more than we had expected and we had the time of a lifetime.
A great family get together!
We found the Castle House to be everything it says it is. Our family reunion was wonderful because we had all kinds of things to do for all ages. We found the house has everything you need minus the food and we brought plenty of that with us. Debbie was very helpful with any questions we had and was right on time to let us in. Mitch, you have a wonderful castle and we want to “Thank you” for sharing it with us.
A great week end
We loved every minute we were there and will plan another stay there.
It was everything and more than we had planned on.
Thank you Mitch KIng .
