The Chateau de Vie, originally called Kyrene Mansion, was dreamed and constructed in 1984 by the visionary Phil Erickson, a framing contractor. The estate featured exquisite stained glass, ornate wooden carvings, and stunning murals. Erickson and his wife intended the property to last for ages. After owning the property for some 15 years, the Ericksons decided to relocate. Unfortunately, by 2010, the property fell to disrepair. 

Shelly and Nick Goodman have been honored to restore the beauty of this exquisite estate to its former glory. Under Shelly's attentive supervision, the home has blossomed into the magnificent private vacation rental it is today. The Goodmans have four wonderful children and enjoy actively serving within their church and community.

On behalf of Nick & Shelly Goodman, welcome to the Chateau de Vie!
