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

It's only a couple dollars more to visit the Yacht House when you are visiting Boldt Castle. Only need 1/2 hour, really, to see it but it was very interesting!

We traveled the boat to Heart Island to visit the Boldt Castle and it is truly amazing! I want to go back in 20 years to see how much more of it has been renovated!

I did this as part of my Uncle Sams boat tour. Boldt Castle is a beautiful castle. It does cost a little extra to get into it but it's worth it in my book. It is a very large castle, inside and around it. The story behind it is incredible and interesting. It's nice because you can stay for as... More
