4. Luxury Castle in Cleveland, WI

If luxurious castle living in the Wisconsin countryside is your thing, check out Castle Vineyard. This place is insanely beautiful and full of amazing spaces. But if that doesn’t do it for you, maybe the piano on the ceiling will, or the WWII battleship door on the wine cellar, or the killer theater, or the golf simulator. Well, maybe not the golf simulator. The taxidermy sailfish, though, that alone makes it all worthwhile.
