Welcome to Solomon's Castle and The Boat in The Moat in Ona, Florida.

Featured on CNN and Better Homes & Gardens, Extreme Homes

Once Upon a Time there was a man who dreamed of castles, he built his dream and called it Solomon's Castle.

That single-minded
creator, the King of the
Castle, Howard S. Solomon, is the kind of Renaissance Man, whose individualistic search for creative solitude now draws people by the busloads (literally) to his front door, or moat, if you will.  Grant yourself a half-day for this grandiose amazement, knowing that an easy drive will take you to this wonderfully
picturesque scene, midst
oaks and palmettos beside
winding Horse Creek.

Follow the yellow brick road  to the wonders of Solomon's Castle.

Steps leading to the front door of the castle.

Two "men-at-arms", one clad in black and the other covered in white (Knight and Day) stand guard at the castle doors.
