I have to say, I’ve lived in Illinois my whole life. Only 45 minutes away from my town and never heard of this place. It wasn’t until Saturday December 14th 2013 that my husband and I noticed it while driving down the North West highway. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing! It is the most magnificent place I had ever seen. I was simply mesmerized by it. We took a quick detour to get a closer look and I instantly fell in love! I have only seen a very small portion of the outside of this magical home, but it’s something I will never forget. I hope when I have grandchildren one day soon we will bring them to see the castle that made my heart skip a hundred beats. It’s amazing!
