O is for Overlook. My wife and I spent last weekend in Eureka Springs, Arkansas with my sister and her husband. While we were there we took a private guided tour of Castle Rogue's Manor in the nearby town of Beaver. The castle is situated on limestone cliffs above the White River and has some amazing overlooks.
The Castle was designed and built over the last twenty years by owner/resident Smith Treuer. He gave us a very detailed tour of the property and then let us wander over the twenty acres that the castle is built on. It was a photographers dream.
The Castle design and materials honor native trees of the Ozarks by incorporating their natural beauty into the heart of its structure with a stunning mixture of Black Walnut, Arkansas Red Cedar, as well as salvaged Redwood and Douglas Fir from the Pacific Northwest. All wood used in castle buildings was aged and milled on-site by local craftsman.
We had a great time at the castle and the views are something I will never forget.
