Granny's Castle: Farmhouse Getaway...

Space 1,750 sq ft
Property type farmhouse


About the property

4 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

Granny’s Castle, built in 1912, is a farmhouse located approximately five miles west of Lewisburg, KY. This charming retreat is nestled ½ mile off of Highway 106/Spa Road and offers guests a scenic getaway that is reminiscent of a simpler time.

This old farmhouse, endearingly called Granny’s Castle, holds a special place in our family’s history. In 2007, due to health concerns, Granny was no longer able to live alone in her beloved home place. One day, several years later, our two year old granddaughter, Emma, noticing the old house at the end of the road asked, “Is that Granny’s house?” We told her that, yes, although Granny didn’t live there anymore, the house was indeed hers… Emma sweetly replied, “That’s not Granny’s house, it’s Granny’s Castle.”

In 2014, Granny passed away at the age of 92. In honor of Granny’s memory, we decided to restore the farmhouse so that our family could continue to enjoy my childhood home for many years to come. We invite you to come and enjoy the serenity and solitude of this newly restored retreat.

Close to paradise

I fell in love with Granny's Castle... it is truly a place where peace, charm, positive energy is on every step you take.

I recommend this lovely farm house to anyone... it's charm and comfortability is great. It is obvious owners take a lot of care and the love can be perceived in the details through out the property (inside and outdoor). Very clean, organized, with a strong sense of family. I can not express how much I enjoyed it and Mr Johnson is an absolute pleasure to deal with him.

Hoping to go back and keep returning! :)

I loved it here. The stress of running a business can be overwhelming at times and this much needed vacation did the trick to calm my ailments. I will definitely revisit. Thank you Rodney and family for having me!

We loved staying at Granny’s Castle. It was relaxing and perfect for us, our two year old and 2 dogs

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the peaceful area and running around stuff both inside and out. Our two year old loved the outdoor shower! He also loved to just run around. We were very grateful to have the owner of the property, Rodney close by in case of emergencies. We are very thankful he let us come stay after very recently loosing his wife. We appreciated the kindness. Lewisburg is great. You have to visit Spa lake which is only. 5-10 minute drive. We rented a kayak from a source that Rodney knew and we had a great time! Overall, we were very happy with our stay:

A Step Back in Time...

  • 5 of 5

What a peaceful place to gather family. We had such a relaxing time. The farmhouse is at the end of the dead-end lane and was just delightful. We watched deer and saw a few turkeys and one night we heard the bird, the whipper-will, which brought back good memories of our Dad. Thank you Johnson Family for making us feel very welcome. We enjoyed the sourdough bread and jam you brought us for breakfast.
