About Us

RavenStone Castle is more than a family home. It's a castle with 16th century style, modern conveniences and detailed craftsmanship.

RavenStone Castle History

In 2001, Jose and Rose Michel broke ground on their dream home - a castle in the 16th century style. Truly making the house their own, Rose designed each room, arch and turret.

With plans in hand, the Michel family - including four sons and a daughter - built the castle from the ground up. They rented equipment, excavated the basement, set forms and poured concrete. While they were framing the roof, they realized they could see all the way to the grocery store in Harvard.

Another pleasant surprise was how everyone's natural talents surfaced as they worked on the interior details of the castle. Together they built something much more than just a house. Amazing craftsmanship and a unique design await you. 

RavenStone Castle is filled with antiques and unique pieces from all over the world.  We hope you will visit and enjoy the Michel Family's dream.
