Be King and Queen of Illinois in This Huge and Rentable Castle
Peace, tranquility, private golf course, 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a movie theater you can sleep in. This is one outrageous fantasy come true.
Rent this Illinois castle for an overnight you will never forget
That is a gigantic understatement!
Recently on The Steve Shannon Show, we talked about a relationship rule I'd seen on social media. I immediately shared it with my wife and WE decided it needs to become part of our marriage's mission statement
The 2/2/2 Marriage Rule
Every 2 weeks, go out on a date
Every 2 months, go somewhere overnight
Every 2 years, go away for a week
My head went into immediate travel planning the moment I saw this. My wife and I share four children and we look very forward to the time we're able to carve out for just the two of us.
Planning trips away with your significant other is of paramount importance
Good thing that in Rockford, we're surrounded by some pretty good destinations for the 'overnights every 2 months', or in this case a complete escape into a world where you and your significant other rule a central Illinois kingdom.
The Castle of Palmyra
A 40-acre forested estate with a fully stocked private lake, with sandy beach for swimming and pontoon boat complete with a suspension bridge.
Is this for real?
it is almost impossible to believe you can rent this place on VRBO
- Star gaze through a telescope in your own private observatory
- Play on the 3-hole private golf course
- Hiking trails for adventures, rock hunting or nature walks
The grand suite for the 'royal couple' is 1000-square-feet
"The castle was absolutely amazing! Spacious, entertaining and gave us no reason to have to leave the property!" (Katrina M.)
"This is the place. Stop looking elsewhere. The photos don’t do the house/property justice! The Castle was the perfect location for our get together and had more than enough space to accommodate our whole party." (Zachary W.)
Of course, when you're renting a castle, there's room for more that just the king and queen.
"We had a family get together with 10 adults and 5 kids ages 3-7. The kids had a great time exploring the castle and surrounding grounds." (Rich L.)
The castle's kitchen is outstanding!
The Palmyra Castle is located in South Palmyra Illinois (about 40 miles southwest of Springfield, IL).
The castle rents for around $1,400 per night.
