"A special little castle in the mountains of Murphy, North Carolina called to us and we answered. We ventured off into the mountains to find what we immediately knew to be our next life chapter and foundation in which to express our passion for creativity while providing an opportunity for others to do the same. We are realizing our own dreams of living a creative life and we are now sharing that Joy with the creative and quirky, eccentric and curious, dreamers, romantics and lovers. We are in the business of making memories and invite you to experience the magic of Castle of Joy"
GUIDED BY PASSION AND CREATIVITY THE CASTLE IS THEIR CANVAS, PLAYGROUND AND SANCTUARY. TRANSFORMING IT TO HOST YOUR MAGICAL DAY IS THEIR DREAM, BUSINESS AND JOY!
"Our mission is to live a creative life through a glass half full perspective. The Castle of Joy is the foundation for this expression and the vehicle in which we will spread that Joy."
