Take Your Princess to a Real Life Castle! Heather Hopson May 25, 2017 Pittsburgh & Philly Dear Diary, If you have a princess in your castle, you probably took your chariot out for a spin to see Beauty and the Beast recently. Maybe you took the trip several times, memorizing the movie. Now, it’s time to drive beyond your kingdom walls. Pennsylvania is home to several real life castles-some even offer tours, overnight stays and activities. Bowman’s Castle, Fayette County Bowman’s Castle, also known as Nemacolin Castle, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as it was once a trading post in the late 1790s. You can take a tour of the 22-room mansion with many original furnishings, selecting from historic or haunted. There are also candlelit tours available. Buhl Mansion, Sharon, Mercer County Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this luxurious castle features 10 guest rooms and a world-class spa fit for a princess.
