This is one of my favorite castles due to the growth of the plants makes it look a little mysterious.

Berkeley Castle, America’s Castles Part 28

Posted in America's Castles tagged , , , , at 1:57 pm by Kendal

Berkeley Springs, West Virgina

Perched on a hill over looking the area is a private owned castle with an interior that is authentic as the home it is.  The Castle use to be open for tours but now is back to where it started, as a well cared for private residence.  The castle can still be used for weddings, photography and hosts a tea in December for support of the museum.  There are few chances to see this residence but it can be seen perched on the hill in Berkeley Springs.

Rosecliff is definitely a home that is from the fairy-tale books.
