Dare to Compare
Most of the other facilities in the area advertise for 10 guests, as does the Castle.
If you compare we are sure you will decide to stay with us.
The other facilities in the area have 3 bedrooms and two baths.
The Castle has 5 bedrooms , three full and 1 half baths. Fully equipped kitchen, large foyer, Library, Greatroom with 22 foot high ceilings,  dining room, 2 huge balconies and the Dungeon which is equipped with pool table, games, flat screen TV, unique bar, walk out sliding glass doors onto a patio with BBQ, and fire ring. That breaks down to just $87.20 per night per couple when you rent the entire Castle (all 5 bedrooms).

If you don't rent the entire Castle you get the Castle and number of bedrooms rented for your stay. 

The B&B's in the area rent for $90.00 to $125.00 + tax per night. Most hotel rooms , which are 30 miles away cost more per night than the MacDarvey Castle when you rent the entire Castle.

We are attempting to keep the Castle as user friendly, clean, safe and affordable as we can for our guests.
