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

Hopped off the Uncle Sam tour to do this as an extra- Worth the visit once but still so much unfinished and most of furnishings not native to the actual home (vandalism, theft, etc. from past) that the pictures only did it justice

Beautiful! The boat rides are great. make sure to wave to the locals, but each boat tour guide exaggerates a little on the details.
