Not sure where they get off on calling this a castle. It's just a junky, very gaudy old house. Don't waste your time or money on this joke.

A interesting history for the construction of the house and some of the furnishings, but it ends there- and you have to read the brochure to get that. . The woman who met us at the entrance gate took our money spent less than a minute talking about her grandmother who designed the house, then told us to look through the house on our own and out the back door to the yard. We didn't see her again. She wasn't rude, as some other reviewers mentioned, just totally disinterested. The house itself isn't particularly attractive and the grounds aren't either unless you like stack of rocks and trees with bottles stuck on the ends of limbs.

original, ingenious and unusual. A gorgeous little gem off the beaten path. Don't miss it. The house is constructed with enormous windows and cut-outs in the 2-level so that plants can grow up through. Her home is covered in the stones from the river. The arbors are covered with these stones and stone sculptures like bird baths and planters. There's many bottle trees, which we loved. Watch out for bees. Lots of bees because of the pear tree. Lovely relative gives you a quick description and lets you in for $7. It was good stuff and it's awesome to see the remains of a woman who was before her time. Peculiar and delightful. Way up my alley.

The house had many home made fixtures and decorations. Lots of antiques too. The lady of the house showed us around, and anwwered all the questions. Saw many rock displays, and well as chrystal rock siding on most of the house. Beautiful gardens. a real surprise to find something this in Eureka Springs

This was an interesting example of female ingenuity and I, personally, found it to be worth the experience. Visitors are allowed to roam freely throughout the house and gardens, even 'though the property is still occupied by the grand-daughter of the original builders who will welcome you to the property and provide you with some insight into her ancestors.
