This Insane Castle Hiding In Arkansas Is What Dreams Are Made Of

Northwest Arkansas is a fairy tale location, and the wonder of the area is largely hidden from the rest of America. (All the better for those who know about all the gems that are shining in the Ozarks.) The enchantment of it all even includes a breathtaking castle that looks as if it appeared straight from of the pages of a storybook. Designed and built over the course of two decades by creative world traveler Smith Treuer, Castle Rogue’s Manor is a fantasy come true in the Natural State.

Castle Rogue’s Manor is one of the more recent castles built in America. The majestic structure is located just outside of Eureka Springs and a few miles outside of the small town of Beaver in Carroll County. When appraised in August 2011, the property’s asking price was a staggering $1,800,000. Upon looking at the castle’s amenities, you can see why the exorbitance is a requirement. The luxurious location is situated on 18 acres of land with amazing views and is a collection of eight total structures, including the Great Hall (used for entertainment and special events).


In addition to fine dining and formal events, the castle also features a rental house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Visitors can enjoy peaceful seclusion as the castle is situtated in a prime location – on a limestone bluff bordered by Leatherwood Creek and Table Rock Lake. There’s not a bad view on site, either. The castle offers 360-degree scenic views everywhere you turn.


Castle Rogue’s Manor has received national attention for its splendor. The location is very popular for weddings and other formal gatherings, and scheduled tours are provided by reservation. Book your event or enjoy the excellent fine dining at Castle Rogue’s Manor. Spend a while in a real-life fantasy land and have fun!
