Nat Geo’s prepper fortress Doomsday Castle now renting rooms

Doomsday Castle now renting rooms like a hotel

Looking for a nice, romantic getaway? How about a nice room for two in the scenic foothills of the Appalachian mountains for $75 a night? Oh, and did I mention that if the world happens to end during your stay, you will be just fine? That’s right, the titular character from National Geographic Channel’s prepper reality series Doomsday Castle is renting rooms!

The announcement came via the Doomsday Castle Facebook page:

We are going to start booking tours/stays @ the Doomsday Castle (1 hour outside of Greenvile SC/2 hours north of Atlanta) when it gets warmer..Maybe even put it on AirBnB…Is anyone interested to stay for $50 for a campsite, $75 for a 2 person bed in Castle affordable? We also have a Badass 7 bedroom lake house @ The Reserve at Lake Keowee up the street from castle for $100 per bedroom/bathroom

The posting got numerous positive comments from those excited for the opportunity to stay at the famous fortress, but some of the more diehard preppers seemed to think less of the idea. “But.. ok.. so you guys are going to fund a new doomsday project or this isn’t really a doomsday castle?” One commenter asked. “Giving out your coords is a no no in the prepping world,” he added.

Another commenter wrote, “Watching the show however, I didn’t get the impression that your dad is building this castle, his legacy, for entertainment purposes… But to protect his family when sh!t goes down. Is he cool with this?”

It seems that Brent Bruns, Sr. is OK with it because another commenter asked if the Bruns family would be there and Brent Bruns II said that it would be him with “Ashley n Dad for sure.” Actually, it appears as though the hotel idea was Sr.’s in the first place. “Patriarch is considering guests to Castle ….should we do a Airbnb?” the page asked on December 14 along with a photo of Brent Bruns, Sr.

And if you are seriously thinking about an apocalypse-proof vacay with the Bruns family, but are asking yourself, “Where is the Doomsday Castle?” then just head on over to Google Maps where it is pretty easy to figure out the once-secretive compound is located at 285 Dreugh Evins Dr. in Pickens, South Carolina. Here’s the satellite view:

The hotel enterprise comes on the heels of the family attempting to film a Season 2 pilot back in December after National Geographic Channel opted to not pick up the show for a second season. The pilot was to feature couples staying at the Doomsday Castle as they reacted to an Ebola outbreak. Here’s the original casting poster and announcement with status updates:
