Fun to drive by in the beautiful hill country. Beautiful Park Rd 4. The road is narrow, so if you are pulling a trailer slow down.

Not sure why this is listed as things to see, because you can't! I did read all the reviews and knew beforehand that we wouldn't be able to tour it but even seeing it was not worth driving to the right spot.

This place looks cool but you can only see it briefly as you drive by and can’t get close enough to it to do anything but admire it from afar.

This castle is not open for tours, but can be seen from a drive on Park Road 4 - it is one of a kind in this area!

Went to a wedding here and was most impressed with the rather large chapel, the structure, and ornamentation.

I took one of Burnet's park roads to do some bluebonnet sightseeing, and this castle was seen at a distance. It's striking and would make a great tourist attraction, but it's privately owned. I

This is a private residence open once a month for weddings. It would be awesome if they would open it up for tours. It was beautiful to see from a distance.
