This is my first visit back since 1960"s. WOW what a change! It is very exciting to see the Improvements and Renovations. Even my 16 year old grandson loved the visit since we could do the visit in our own pace and travel all over the island. It was a great interactive history lesson for him that was fun.

It was wonderful to tour at your own pace and walk all over the grounds. There was a very good 15 minute film to watch which shouldn't be missed. Opulence at it's highest!

It is a beautiful place to walk around. Didn't realize there were a lot of rooms that remained unconstructed. Nonetheless I would recommend it for a day trip.

The castle and grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the castle and taking in the views of Alexandria Bay. It is a testament to true love's beauty. Absolutely THE GEM of the Thousand Islands. Take the Uncle Sam "Two Nations" tour that ends at Boldt with shuttles back to Alexandria Bay every 30 minutes. Well worth... More

This was the 3rd time that we have been to Heart Island and we were glad to see each time more and more of the mansion being restore from it’s form neglected state. When we 1st visited many years ago they didn’t discourage people from writing their names on the walls. Saying “that is part of the heritage and tradition”.... More

Decided last minute while parents were in town visiting to take them to Alexandria Bay. Having never visited before myself wasn't sure what to expect. We were all in awe of just how beautiful the castle and grounds were!! It is a must see if you are in the area!

Our experience at Boldt Castle was one of wonder and awe. As it is still in the process of being restored, it was a look back in time of how much a man loved his wife. it was built in 1900 by Mr. Boldt for his wife. A few years after the start she passed away and he never returned... More
