10 Quirkiest Vacation Homes You Can Rent This Summer

Bath Lodge Castle
Location: Bath, England
Cost: From $4,365 per night

Now this is a bit more plush.

You and up to 15 of your friends can have the run of this small castle and its turrets, battlements and lattice gate. Your light comes in through leaded glass windows, leather furniture sits on rich red carpet, a wood-burning fireplace is flanked by chiseled-stone walls. It's a lovely fairytale setting without any of the theme park accoutrements.

The castle sits on 3.5 acres of manicured lawns and gardens and includes an outdoor hot tub and sauna. In the summer, folks who've read more than their share of Pride and Prejudice -- never with zombies -- descend upon the town for the Jane Austen Festival's Regency Costumed Summer Ball in June. During the summer solstice, visitors from around the world gather at nearby Stonehenge at dawn to mark the occasion. There are nearby open-air boat trips on River Avon, tours of the Bath Abbe, and soaks in the Roman Baths. You're not royalty, but you can get the royal treatment in Bath without paying a fortune.
