To see all of these glorious antique watercraft is to better understand history and our place in it. Learned a new way to get to the yard house I thought you could only get there by boat now I realize one could drive to it as well.

Our Yacht House guides were very informative and friendly. They gave us tips for seeing the castle. It was nice to send some time with them as well as the House and Castle.

Took cruise 2 years ago but lacked time to do the castle tour. Returned with wife and friends and we did the castle and yacht house. All was well worth it for all the reasons others have covered. A great way to end the Two Nation Cruise.

Part of the Boldt is estate, its just absolutely gorgeous and huge when you look at it. It's so nice to see all of the architecture and just amazing to see the money that was here. You can even take a small tour and go over by boat to see it even closer after you've done the castle

We are water people so this may have been our favorite part and amazing to think it was needed. We also saw the Boldt House boat at the antique boat museum in Clayton the day before so that made it more fathomable.

It was very interesting seeing all the old boats and learning about the Boldt family. It took us about 45 minutes to look at the boats and read all the information posted about the boats and the family. The staff quarters upstairs were beautiful.

My wife and I along with another couple visited Boldt Castle and for an additional small fee we took the tour of the Boldt Yacht House. I am an avid boater and the display of these antique wooden boats is amazing and to top it off the Yacht House for these beauties is the ultimate Man Cave for boats. A... More

I drove around to the Yacht house and started my adventure here. It was $2.75 to cross the bridge to get there, and $2.50 for the Yacht house and $8.50 for the Castle. Not sure how much other options would have been. The yacht house is impressive and a ferry leaves every 30 minutes for the castle. Unless you are... More
