We stopped at Boldt Castle at the end of our Uncle Sams Boat Tour. The Castle itself still has a few floors that they are renovating, but overall it is a lovely building. The surrounding grounds, with gardens and gazebos offer nice views of the surrounding waterways.

Boldt Castle is a MUST to visit! The island is beautiful and not only is the Castle gorgeous to look around but the grounds, the Engine house and additional smaller buildings on the island are a fabulous sight. There was some ongoing building effort occuring whilst we were there and I hope they can return the top couple of floors... More

I never heard of this place till I was visiting my friends cottage on Canadian side and they told me about this place if I want to see it. I am so glad I did. Absolutely beautiful. What a love story it is too. There is some inconsistancy with dates though. You are able to watch a short 15min movie... More

Boldt Castle was beautiful! Put on your walking shoes as the grounds are great to explore. We took our time and toured the castle, yacht house and grounds in 3 1/2 hours. This gave us time to look through the two gift shops as well. Great time can't wait to go back!

If you are in Alexandria Bay you must visit Heart Island. The grounds are beautiful, the redone rooms gorgeous and the ones not refinished yet filled with lively graffiti. You will need at least a few hours to see everything. We try and visit once every decade and am always impressed at what they have accomplished. Both history buffs and... More

It has been at least 20 years since we were there. What a lot of changes. They are in the process of completing the project like Mr. Boldt wanted. The yacht house had some amazing boats. Has to be a must when visiting the area

The St. Lawrence River is beautiful and watching all the other boat traffic is entertaining. You can take one hour tours or two hour tours of all the islands or you can take a 10 minute boat ride out to just Boldt Castle. The castle is beautiful and the surrounding buildings and grounds are also beautiful. Bring a lunch and... More
