The Bunk Room sleeps eight, (4-full beds, 4 twin XL beds) with two bathrooms only a few steps away. 

The Royal Quarters is on the upper level, complete with two master suites, each with a full bathroom. French doors from each room lead you to the terrace where the six person hot tub lives. The large terrace spans the entire length of the castle and the turret is the best place to watch the ever changing Blue Ridge Mountain landscape. The evening comes to life with outdoor lighting and an orchestra of wildlife. 

The Royal Quarters also include a fully equipped kitchen with all the necessities. We even include Starbucks coffee and a Keurig for your convenience. Relax by the fireplace in the living room, play a game, read a book. We leave goodies for you to enjoy!

The Dungeon Gallery Lounge is open to all guests as part of the Castle of Joy experience, regardless if you opt to add the Bunk Room to your stay. The revolving gallery of fine art, decor, and furnishings was all created by artists Cristine and Vincent Cambrea and available for purchase. Click here to view the current exhibit


Included in your stay is access to the 11 acre castle grounds, nature trails, fountains, moat, courtyard in front of the castle, pavilion next to the barn, and Sweetheart Pond. The castle grounds come to life at night. We've lit the property so you can experience the evening magic. Evening lighting, seating areas, fire pits, benches, tables, fountains, over sized adirondack sweet heart chair, and sculptures adorn the property and we continue to add new treasures all the time! Explore and find your favorite spot! Take the "Joy" trail down to the meadow and meditate, read a book, sun bathe, or picnic by the stream. Picnic blanket included! We continue to add seating areas, art sculptures and hidden treasures around the property. We want you to explore and find something new each time you visit with us. Our newest installation is the pavilion (left of the barn) and shadow wall. Enjoy being giants as you walk in front of the wall. Shadows expand the entire side of the castle. Hours of fun can be enjoyed playing shadow puppets and the photos are surreal!

As artists, our greatest Joy is adding to the artscape castle installation. We want you to feel the Joy we have in what we do and take that home with you.
Most of all we want our guests to experience the magic of Castle of Joy as if it's the first time every time!
