With family who own a cottage on Murray Isle..I had simply driven by the castle for 20 years, dreaming about entering someday. We'd hear stories of people who snuck into the castle to sign their name on the walls (which you'll see on the top floor) and sit on the roof when it was abandoned. It is beautifully restored, period... More

Ive been to the Castle several times over the years. This last visit was the best so far because they have now restored almost 4 floors of the Castle as well as working on the basement and walkway underneath the Castle. I have seen the progress from the first floor being undone and filled with grafitti and decay. It is... More

We reached the castle by ferry and it was a wonderful trip over to the island. The castle itself is awesome with plenty of see at every turn. The gardens were beautiful and it was a real pleasure to wander around taking in the sights. Certainly worth a visit.

I absolutely love Boldt Castle and have probably gone a dozen times over the years. The Castle and the Island are absolutely gorgeous, great photos.

This place is like a fairy tale in reality. You get free range to walk around the island where ever you like. There's no structured tour which is how I prefer. The first 3 floors of the castle are finished to the original owners specs and the top two are still a work in progress with years of vandalism showing... More

A fantasy in the making, with a great love-story behind it. This 20th century folly is now being completed to the original designs. We were staying in Canada and drove over the 1000 Islands International bridge to visit, rather than using one of the Canadian boat tours. Glad we did, as it meant the lengthy checks at the border didn't... More

My father and I toured Boldt Castle as we were travelling back to Ontario. The trip over was quick with Sam's boat. We took the first boat in the morning so it wasn't busy at all. The castle was BREATHTAKING. I suggest you go see it! I can't wait to go back and see what other renos they have completed!

The story behind the castle is very romantic and the way he was building the castle for the family is awesome
