  • Such fantastic guides! They are so knowledgeable. The tour is fantastic and informative. The castle itself is an epic local find that's honestly a well kept secret. Learning about the history of the property and seeing the one of a kind architecture is so rewarding. I highly recommend anybody in the area interested in history, castles, architecture, or just a cool home come check this place out!

The castle is simply amazing, Henry Mercer was a true lover of the human nature and you can feel it by exploring the 44 rooms of his castle. The things that most impressed me are the clay tiles with cuneiform writings embedded in one of the Salon columns that are dated way before Christ.
