More Ideas in AR: Castle Rogue's Manor

Located near Beaver, Arkansas on seventeen acres of land in the Ozarks, Castle Rogue’s Manor is a 15,000-square-foot Medieval-style castle available for private event rental and living history home tours by appointment. Castle Rogue’s Manor was the brainchild of Smith Treuer and Debbie Sederstorm, local Ozarks residents and avid world travelers and art collectors with an interest in the history and mythology of the European Renaissance era.


In 1985, the couple decided to build a Medieval-style castle on a seventeen-acre plot of undeveloped land located near the towns of Beaver and Eureka Springs, once used as a limestone quarry providing materials for the nearby Crescent Hotel. According to Treuer, the property’s 100-foot limestone bluff, which offers 360-degree views of the Ozarks and the nearby Little Golden Gate Bridge, “begged for a castle” to be built on it.

As a personal passion project, Treuer believed that the completed castle would one day create an illusion of the fantasy and romance associated with the Renaissance era in Europe. Using locally-sourced and salvaged black walnut, red cedar, and redwood from the Ozarks’ forests, the couple constructed the mansion over the course of nearly two decades. When the home was appraised in 2011, it was valued at a sum of $1,800,000. As one of the newest castles constructed in America, the completed castle received national attention and was featured on the HGTV series Home Strange Home in 2012.

Attractions and Amenities

Today, the castle overlooks a 20-acre section of the Ozark forest, surrounded by a makeshift “moat” of the nearby Leatherwood Creek and Table Rock Lake. A total of eight structures sit on the property, arranged in the style of Renaissance-era castles and incorporating the area’s natural landscape into the estate’s design. Design elements are borrowed from Medieval European, Scandinavian, and Asian castles, blended with contemporary elements to create a timeless fantasy atmosphere. The main castle building is a twelve-bedroom, thirteen-bathroom residence, melding classic detailing such as guard towers with modern amenities, including wifi networking and a central vacuum cleaner system.

A four-level, 8,000-square-foot Great Hall is the central gathering space of the castle, divided into six room spaces, including a library, dining room, and theater with recessed space for a stage and movie screen for special events. Balustrades and carved stone columns used in the hall and around its landscaping are constructed from materials recovered from the Iowa State Capitol building. A multi-story fireplace adorns the hall, featuring a custom mantlepiece designed by Mel Shipley with sculpted dragon heads crafted with Sri Lankan moonstone, Persian turquoise, and Indian star ruby rocks collected from Treuer’s world travels. Outside the hall’s library, a large deck space has been constructed from 50,000 pounds of native rocks.

In addition to the main castle building, a nearby six-floor Gatekeepers Cottage contains two master bedroom suites. Post-and-beam construction supports the cottage’s unique roofing, which showcases four octagonal towers, and ornamental ironwork detail includes railings designed in Old English, Gothic, and Italian balloon style. A modern reproduction of a Renaissance-era English throne is located inside the cottage, along with paintings by artist Larry Mansker depicting Medieval jousters. The cottage’s bedrooms are covered by canopies and showcase memorabilia such as daggers and swords. A two-story garage, two “guard shacks,” and a drive-through barn adorned with a cupola are also located on the property.

The castle is currently insured as a museum and available for guided small group tours by appointment. The venue may also be rented for weddings, galas, charity events, and other private special events. The Great Hall seats up to 120 and can accommodate live musicians, film screenings, and other entertainment on its stage. Catering and china service are available for dining events upon request. Occasional public special events are also presented at the castle, including the Cats at the Castle social hour, offering a cash beer and wine bar.

In addition to the Manor, Treuer and Sederstorm also own and operate the Rogue’s Manor tavern in historic downtown Eureka Springs and the Beaver Town Inn and General Store in Beaver. Rogue’s Manor features an eclectic American menu curated by head chef Sederstorm along with wine and spirits offerings, and may be rented in conjunction with the castle as a facility for rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. Lodging is also available at the Rogue’s Manor tavern, including a Mediterranean room with a Roman-style marble jacuzzi and several penthouse suites. The Beaver Town Inn serves as the meeting site for all castle tours and offers lodging for up to 11 visitors, along with an assortment of furniture, fishing supplies, handcrafted artisan goods, and castle memorabilia for sale at the General Store.
