If you've ever wanted to live the exclusive lifestyle of a royal, but with actual privacy, then you may want to head to...Southern California. That's where this secluded, 9,000-square-foot castle is available for rent on Vrbo.

Castle in the Forest is a sprawling private estate that’s tucked away in a canyon near the scenic Lake Arrowhead. The massive chateau features six luxurious bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and several kitchens. Surrounded by towering trees, the property is the perfect destination for an exclusive getaway.

With its cathedral ceilings, gothic architectural features, floor-to-ceiling windows, formal dining room, and acoustically perfect grand ballroom, you’ll think the castle is plucked out of a fairytale. Looking for activities? You've come to the right place. There's a study, a theater room, a game room, a wine cellar, and a pub with a sunken bar.

Living like the royals does come with a steep price tag, though: One night at Castle in the Forest rings in at $2,595. But if you bring 19 friends, it’ll cost less than $150 a night to fulfill your regal dreams. And don’t forget the castle is huge (it can fit up to 22 people!). Former tenants thought the stunning castle was worth the pricey stay. “The property is unlike any other. Better than any hotel could ever wish to be and more impressive than any vacation rental I have come across. The attention to detail is unmatched,” one renter wrote. “One of my main concerns going into it would be the cleanliness of such a large property. The owner and staff do such an incredible job of cleaning this home that it feels fresh and pristine upon check in.”
