An Amazingly gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step through the doors the interior of the home is simply elegant. You lack for nothing. I cannot say enough about the basement game room, it is a dream for a kid and the kid at heart. It was unbelievable. Everyone had so much fun playing childhood games like pac man and new ones such as giant jenga. The pools is gorgeous and the dock is large enough to accommodate our three boats. The groundskeeper Daniel was so helpful. I had a question about the gas grill and he was right on the spot. The facilities manager Mary Ann was also available and prompt. She made us feel right at home. Thank you for such a beautiful rental property that suited our every need. The owner Andy, knows what it takes for an enjoyable vacation and how to make you happy! We will definitely be back!

Fabulous Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

WOW, pretty much sums it up! You will not be disappointed if you choose this property. We so enjoyed the pool, the arcade and the well stocked kitchen. I appreciated the attention to detail and the small touches, such as an ample supply of paper towels, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent and especially the soft branded toilet paper lol. Andy, the owner, and Mary Ann, the property manager, were very responsive and accommodating to my inquiries & needs. I do have 2 recommendations and one is simply a personal preference. I would add railing to all the steps leading to the dock, as we had a few falls here. And my personal preference would be for there to be a fire pit nearer the pool area in order to avoid all the steps to the dock in the dark. Thanks for sharing this wonderful home!!!

Great castle getaway! Beautiful house & pool! Gameroom awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Plattus castle. The owner, Andy, responded quickly to everything I asked and when he didn't know, led me to VRBO number or who to call. Mary Ann, met us there and gave us the tour and tidbits of the house, and came every time we had a question or if we needed assistance with anything, mainly the games in the gameroom! Wow! The guys loved the gameroom and all that it had! They brought their xbox one and hooked it up too, the wi-fi was great! The castle appearance and decor was marvelous, we enjoyed it so much! Plenty of room! The pool was great as well and much added plus as the lake was too muddy to swim in. Not the owner's fault though, mother nature's as it had rained for several days. They did kayak some, but a few suggestions would be to have a ladder in the water at the dock. This is located at the end of a cove, so the lake water at the time was low, but as I said, we didn't have a boat to dock, so we stayed at pool most of the time. My oldest son caught some great cat fish though and was so excited! We loved the place but hope if we can go next time to be able to enjoy the lake if it clears up more! Overall, we had a fabulous time and enjoyed our conversation with Mary Ann for sure, even helping her get the frog out of the pool filter! ha! Thanks so much!

Great place for a big group

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the castle over the weekend. Mary Ann, the property manager was very friendly and super helpful! She was also easy to communicate with and answered all of our questions.

The house is huge and the game room is amazing. Unfortunately, we didn't have great weather during our stay, but the game room kept us entertained late into the night.

There is tons of fridge and freezer space for food and drinks and an ample selection of pots and pans for cooking. There's also a plethora of comfortable chairs around the house including a great massage chair and reclining moving theater style chairs.

Christmas at the Castle

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas here! The castle was large enough to easily accommodate our entire family of 11. The arcade room was a big hit and we all (adults and kids) spent a lot of time hanging out here together. It has everything including a karaoke machine and an indoor hot tub. Unfortunately the pinball machine was not working at the time. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen was pretty well stocked (didn't have measuring spoons and could have used some tupperware for leftovers) and the dining room table was large enough so that we could all eat together. Fun décor throughout the castle and Andrew allowed us to decorate the house for Christmas. The castle is located right on the lake and is very secluded. Looks like it would be great fun in the summer time with the pool. It really is the perfect place for large groups!
