What a beautiful place !! There is still a lot of restoration to do, but what has been done is incredible. The grounds are gorgeous, but only go on a sunny day to appreciate them !! When you come to Heart Island you are tranported back to the days old. Such an wonderful place to visit :-D

I remember seeing this from the boat on a family vacation as a teenager in the 70's. There is still much to be renovated on the upper floors but what a phenomenal job thus far! If your into early 1900's lifestyle of the well to do, this is it!

A boat ride across the river and you'll be at one of the T.I.'s major attractions. Learning the history of this castle and how it came to be is very interesting.

Have to take the ferry to see the Castle. Should not miss this important local landmark as Boldt touched many areas in the 1000 Islands.

My sister and I had a very good experience at Boldt Castle. It was a beautiful day for the boat ride across to the island. The gardens, stained glass, and stone work is really nice.

Glad we took the time and boat ride to visit this landmark. Yes, some of the rooms have not been restored, but the comparison only serves to point out the immense amount of work that has been done.

Amazingly restored home ,including furniture. The gardens were so beautiful and manicured. Childrens small castle had its own bowling alley and theatre. Very well worth a visit.
