We toured the Yacht House along with the Castle tour. For $2 more you can catch a ferry to the Yacht House. Interesting boats from the Boldt era, but my favorite part was touring the quarters where the Captain/crew lived.

A 5 minute ferry ride from Boldt castle. Worth the ride if you like antique boats and a extra bit of Boldt history. The boat house is well maintained and is beautiful.

Perhaps we were tired by the time we arrived. It is certainly something to experience, but after seeing the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, we felt we had done it already. It is still an amazing building and very beautiful and guides were great.

We planned a drive to Weslley Island adn learned that you could access the Yacht house by vehicle (in contrast to the Boldt castle itself which can only be accessed via boat). We checked briefly on arrival and found that there were limited steps required to see the yacht house. This is a most interesting place. To think that you... More

It was fun to see how the "rich and famous" of 1,000 island lived at the turn of the century.The craftsmanship of these boats was amazing.

This is a beautiful and interesting building; however, if you're not into boats, you probably won't be blown away. Also, there's not a ton to hold children's interest here.

Combination tour of Boldt & the Yacht House is the way to go! Great for boat lovers. Amazing to see the renovations to the Yacht House. Well worth a visit.
