This self guided tour through two castles was very interesting. The larger one is in disrepair, which makes it even more interesting. You can see what time and weather does over many time periods because the renovations over the years provide a time capsule. Although...More

Both castles are about one mile apart. One is in better shape than the other. But you need to go see them. It's astonishing that something so unique is here in Ohio & not that far from Columbus. Inlaid floors, great antiques, Super design, hand...More

Oh wow! Did we stumble on to a wonderful day out. I fly fish the Mad River and one fisherman mentioned the Piatt Castles and a small stream near it. I'd thought they were Indian ruins. Wrong. They are a wonderful piece of Americana with...More

Get lost in history. Here it`s easy to imagine the Mad River Valley as it looked a hundred years ago.

Both "castles" are in need or repair the Mac-o-chee is in need more. It's a shame to let these historic homes go to the dogs. I noticed the gutter even had trees growing out of it, how easy is it to clean them. I have...More

To be honest, I was torn between "Average" and "Very Good" on this one. I'm an Engineer so I really get a kick out of this kind of stuff so that probably led to me bumping the rating up a little higher than some others...More

Large homes, not castles, in total disrepair. I'm sure there has been enough revenue in the past years to keep these homes up and yet totally neglected. Shameful. Admission to see the homes as they are now is a total ripoff. Peek you head in...More
