We came down to Boldt Castle during Thanksgiving weekend. What a gem! We thoroughly enjoyed touring the "castle" and grounds! The restoration work completed thus far is most impressive! Learning about the history of the place is an added bonus. We are looking forward to a return visit in a few years to see what new rooms have been completed.

It's always interesting to walk through an unusual building you don't get to be in everyday. There's a castle in the river at Alex Bay, NY, and the man built it for the woman he loved, though she never got to enjoy it. Meanwhile, it was left to rot but people pitched in to restore and ultimately complete it... Two... More

We went off season - October. The fall colors were breathtaking all around the island and the surrounding area. Best part was, we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves and had lots of personal guidance from staff. This is a great way to spend a day, and dream about what it must have been like to be part... More

Interesting "castle" and boathouse... Very nice gardens... Each room is patterned after a "room in a European castle"... So no harmony... But interesting, nevertheless... Especially combined with a St Lawrence River boat cruise

Sorry, but I didn't expect there to be a castle here! It's a gorgeous testament to love and architecture. The boat ride was amazing. Don't miss it!

We loved exploring the island. The castle is absolutely beautiful. Loved walking through the newly renovated rooms and hearing all about its history. It is a great place to spend an afternoon.

George Boldt, though an unhappy man, gave to all the lovers of the world a treasure which reminds one of the Taj Mahal in India. The castle he has built on Heart Island for his wife, a castle she never got to se because of her untimely death is fit for a King. The Island itself is set in picturesque... More

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
