KNOCK ON THE DOOR
Your home can be your castle... even if it's just for a weekend! Or have a share in it forever. Castle McKenzie, situated on a gated 10.57 acres of rolling lawn and woods in the beautiful Smoky Mountains of Murphy, NC can be yours. We are working on what is called a fractional ownership program. A very few will have the opportunity to purchase a "Key to the Castle" and will share in the ownership of Castle McKenzie and all of the benefits of ownership. This is not a time-share scheme, but a deeded partial ownership program that will enable us to complete the main castle and share the ownership with a lucky few co-owners. More later...
Now... more about the castle...
We are so happy to inform our many past guests that we are now offering our little castle as a vacation rental again. We hope to complete the lower level of the castle by the end of the year. The new lower level will include a Home Theater, Recreation Room, a Den, bedroom or "Dungeon", and a Scottish Pub bar area in the lower turret level. Outside access to the lower level is over the moat via a small wooden bridge. There is a powder room, storage rooms, and will include a full bath and laundry facilities downstairs as well. Hand-made concrete tiles cover much of the lower level floor. It is the same tile that is in the kitchen and dining area upstairs.
Drawings and a layout for the Laird and Lady's castle addition are elsewhere on this website. A professionally drawn artist's rendition by Murphy artist Betsy Henn of the castle with the "some day" to be completed addition, is available elsewhere on the website as well. Click on the "Castle Addition" link to view the drawing.

WHAT'S A DAY IN THE CASTLE GUEST SUITE LIKE?
After exploring our nature trails, shopping, or after visiting the many local shops and activities in and around Murphy, NC and Blairsville, GA... it's time to return to your castle to relax. Or... maybe you are just arriving for your castle stay and need to unwind a bit after your drive? In any case... it's hot tub time.
