“Unbelievable vacation home...unlike anywhere else you've ever stayed.”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
person found this review helpful

My family of four has just returned from a spring break trip to Pop Castle. We had our two children plus 5 of their friends...7 teenagers in all, and we could have fit more, as my daughter pointed out.

This was my third trip to Pop Castle, after first having visited with college girlfriends. The house itself is amazing, both historic and yet comfortable at the same time, with all modern conveniences. There was plenty of space for all of us to spread out, from a sunny sitting room to a comfortable TV area, plus spacious bedrooms for all (and more than enough full bathrooms, which is something you don't always find, especially in old homes). Of course we spent much of our time on the huge glassed-in porch, eating all of our meals there as we took in the spectacular view.

The kids were never bored, despite our requirement that they leave all gaming systems at home. They played croquet and cornhole, sat on the dock, swam in the river, pushed each other on the swing, played ping-pong and basketball, watched a movie or two from the extensive DVD collection, and roasted marshmallows at the fire-pit overlooking the river. The grounds are so extensive that they really never wanted to leave except for the occasional run or bike ride. The kitchen was well stocked, and we ate all meals except one at the house.

I've always thought that "going to the river" was for boat people, but we don't have a boat, nor did we need one at Pop Castle. It was just the right blend of entertaining and relaxing; I think my blood pressure dropped 10 points as I had the first glass of wine while gazing at the river. Staying there is a truly unique experience, and one that can't truly be appreciated until you're gazing at that beautiful river view with the one-of-a-kind house at your back. We'll be back again for sure.
