From the inside, this Alaskan domicile could easily be mistaken for an ordinary house, with carpet and vinyl, couches and a ping-pong table situated on the first two floors. But the door in the corner leading to a tall tower and the second-floor deck ringed with square battlements dissuade any doubt: This is most definitely a castle. Anyone even driving by the structure off Palmer-Fishhook Road can see that.

From the castle’s highest tower, visitors can see all the way to the Knik Glacier even on a cloudy day. The building is situated on a small knoll that makes the view even more expansive, a vast “kingdom” stretched out as far as the eye can see.
