You probably never imagined you could ever spend the night at a castle in the US because the only castles you can think of off the top of your head are Cinderella’s castle in Magic Kingdom and Sleeping Beauty’s castle at Disneyland.
And those are definitely off limits!
But guess what? You don’t have to travel to Europe to visit a castle or even stay in one! If you want to feel like royalty (at least for a day or two!), then check out these incredible castles to rent on Airbnb. As an Airbnb Associate, I earn when you book through my links.
