OUTSIDE THE CASTLE:

The grounds are a combination of rolling hills, trails and untamed mother nature.

Newly renovated 1,000 sq ft carriage barn overlooks the Sweet Heart pond, grounds, and mountains. Protected from the elements but still part of nature the barn is a great place for a workshop, reception, or meeting place.




Enjoy an oversized heart shaped adironack chair, picnic or meditate on the grass, take a nature walk down to the meadow and sit by the stream, enjoy the collection of fine art and scuptures that adorn the property, and breath in that fresh mountain air. 










Outdoor evening lighting, seating, and firepit allows for more time to enjoy and connect with your team or group.



We understand that no two events are the same, we are happy to discuss your vision and we will work with you to create a customized experience to suit your specific needs.

"The castle was amazing! Everyday we found new decorations and cute touches. We enjoyed feeding the fish and seeing the wild life (a deer family and wild turkeys- we didn't feed them). This place is truly special and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you!
