You and 20 of your friends can spend the night at this California castle for $175 each


Big group trips can be expensive, not to mention a logistical nightmare if you’re trying to find lodging for everyone in close proximity. If you’re ready for an epic getaway with 20 of your closest pals that won’t break the bank, check out this amazing castle available for rent on VRBO in Skyforest, California.

This expansive property near Lake Arrowhead, called the Castle in the Forest, is nestled deep in a canyon and can sleep more than 20 people. Priced at $3,450 per night, that works out to just $172.50 per person per night. Reviews reveal that the hosts have even been able to accommodate up to 25 people inside, when given accurate and advance notice.

When you consider all the amenities this 10,000 square-foot chateau provides, it’s a bona-fide bargain. Its floor-to-ceiling windows provide beautiful views of the surrounding forest.


Even if you never leave the property, you won’t get bored during your stay, thanks to the study, theater room, game room, wine cellar and a Bavarian-style pub with a sunken bar.


Check out the stunning architecture and beautiful vaulted ceilings.


Your crew can enjoy cozy nights by the fireplace in the living room.


This gorgeous castle would also make for the perfect site for a family reunion. The dining room looks tailor-made for a holiday feast.


There’s a total of six bedrooms available to guests, so there’s plenty of space for everyone to spread out, including this room with a set of bunk beds and an additional bed, which would be perfect for kids.


Although the castle provides you with more than enough to stay entertained throughout your stay, it’s just five minutes from restaurants and commerce at the Lake Arrowhead Village shopping center.

Lake Arrowhead is set amidst the majestic mountains of San Bernandino National Forest, known as “The Alps of Southern California.” It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, with plenty of fishing, hiking and skiing. It is also home to many hotels and resorts.
