Not sure where to take your next vacation?

We may have found the sweet spot you’re looking for in this candy-themed 8,000 square-foot mansion.

Called the “Sweet Escape,” it’s an estate on five acres in Mount Dora, Florida, just a 45-minute drive from Disney.

But you won’t need to go there because this place is a mini theme park with 10 bedrooms, each with a sugar-related theme,

including the Lolly Pop room, which has its own ball pit!



But that’s not all. The Sweet Escape sports all the usual mansion amenities:

  • A movie theater,
  • an arcade,
  • a karaoke bar,
  • a mini-golf course,
  • aaaaaaaaand a $30-thousand-gallon pool shaped like an ice cream cone, complete with a whipped cream slide and a fountain that looks like a bottle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup!

If you’re ready to treat yourself, you can book a stay here through Airbnb, but you may want to bring some friends along.

A LOT of them – because the sugary palace sleeps 52 people and costs $1,222 per night
