Karen & Shelby are great & caring individuals. This trip was amazing, both Karen & Shelby made us feel as part of their family. We were there over Christmas & they invited my wife & myself to share Christmas dinner with them. Karen is a GREAT cook, & this gesture made us feel right at home! I would highly recommend this getaway to anyone that wants a nice affordable getaway. We will definitely be back & cannot wait to get some more of Shelby's amazing jelly/ Thank you guys!

Owner's Response: Timing is everything and your timing, we feel, was perfect! Having you here for Christmas was such a pleasure, and sharing Christmas dinner with us was priceless! We want our guests to feel more like they are friends, and you two fit that bill perfectly! We do not get a chance to visit with all of our guests as everyone has an agenda which does not always include getting to know us, which is perfectly fine! We are here if someone needs us, otherwise we try to stay invisible so guests can feel like they are their own king and queen of the castle. And I want to thank you so very much for the peppermint ice cream. Not to mention, the chicken spaghetti you made was AWESOME!! I didn't get a chance to thank you before you left. We devoured it one sitting! We would be honored to have you as guests again! Please keep us in mind for a future visit!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Lacey Michele's Castle is a beautiful castle that was built with love. Shelby and Karen are kind, generous people, offering a peaceful retreat for those looking to get away from everyday life. The castle cottage has everything you need and is very comfortable! There are plenty of hiking trails and things to do --horseshoes, badminton, roasting over a campfire, and observing wildlife. It is out in the country, but only about 20 minutes from Branson, so is ideal for the perfect getaway! This is the perfect place for couple to reconnect, as well as for families. Kids would love the castle!! Wish we could've stayed a few more days--hope to go back again some day!

Magical visit to a far away land (seemed like it!)

  • 5 of 5

This unit is tucked up in the country side away from the activities of Branson but close enough to make daily trips back into town for shows or activities. The unit was nice and comfortable. Shelby and his wife were wonderful and truely love what they have created.

We wanted a private, secluded place to celebrate our anniversary. We also wanted something a little different since we had stayed in Branson before. We found this on-line and staying in a castle was certainly different. We found the owners to be very friendly and welcoming and it was secluded and beautiful. The cabin inside the castle was rustic but clean with modern amenities.

It was only 15 minutes to Branson or if you went the other direction into Arkansas it was only 15 minutes.

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our anniversary trip at Karen and Shelby's lovely stone cottage. Our hosts couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable to us as well as our pups. They wouldn't let us leave without a sack of peppers that they grew in their garden. The incredible stone masonry that Shelby has done makes for an unforgettable and unique environment to step away from real life and just enjoy each other. I would especially recommend this property to couples seeking a getaway to reconnect to each other. It's also wonderful that they are so welcoming to your four legged children! The property is also centrally located to Branson to the north and the Buffalo River to the south if you can stand leaving your stone sanctuary for a bit! We are already planning a return trip next year.

Owner's Response: We very much enjoyed hosting this lovely couple and their to well behaved furry family members! We are so glad you were able to enjoy the fenced in areas with your furbabies and take some personal time for yourselves on the hiking trails. Getting to see wildlife and the joys that mother nature offers up close and personal is priceless. It is truly our mission for you and your family/spouse to be able to disconnect with the rest of the world for a while, and reconnect with each other through the enjoyment of our exclusive, secluded cottage surrounded by the beauty and peacefulness of wildlife and mother nature! We want your stay to be an enjoyable experience where tons of memories are made!! We are thrilled to know we were successful. Please visit us again!

Owner's Response: We know you were able to disconnect with the rest of the world and reconnect with each other - which is always our main mission! If you were happy, we were successful. We are such a unique location and have so much to offer! Being able to find yourself surrounded by the relaxing atmosphere of wildlife and the beautiful lights from the night skies is not something you find just anywhere. If you want the fun of shopping, eating out and taking in the shows, that's just 15 minutes away in Branson! Or see the Passion Play in historic Eureka Springs, only 45 minutes from us! And in just over an hour, you can be at the beautiful Buffalo River National Park for some beautiful hiking or floating the scenic river! Or you can just stay with us and build a fire in the firepit behind the man care. Cook some smores or grill some hot dogs! Watch the night skies and count the stars or look for comets and meteors. You can hike in the over 5 miles of hiking trails and spend the day exploring the 70 acres of our secluded paradise!! We will be looking forward to your next visit!
