We arrived on a very rainy day, so we got a good idea of what it must have felt like in the early days, a bit dark and dreary. Our tour guide was wonderful, and so knowledgeable about every aspect from the furnishings to the families that lived there over the years. Definitely worth the visit.

From the outside this looks very run down and unappealing, with limited parking. However, once you get inside , the interior and furnishings are amazing. Our tour guide was wonderful and so knowledgeable of the history of the architecture and the two families who lived here. The view from the back yard over looking the harbor is very nice. Our...

Tour was excellent! It's the first home that I have toured that actually had most of the original furnishings still intact. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative.

Very interesting Historic New England property, particularly the background of the family that lived there until quite recently. We had an excellent tour (the only ones on it) and weren't rushed through. Fascinating mixture of furniture tying in with the family history.

Castle Tucker was a treat; our tour was fantastic. Loved seeing original furnishings and items in the house from the 1800s.

As a member of Historic New England, I try to visit one of their houses when we travel, and this site was very interesting. The guide was informative about the family, as well as the house and its history. If you have time, try to visit both houses in Wiscasset, Castle Tucker and the Nicholls-Sortwell house.

If in the Wiscasset area, this is an interesting house to visit. Somewhat eclectic as house has been used in various ways over the years. Still, some good historical value and worth your time.

Castle Tucker is a very interesting 1807 house which was remodeled in the late 1800's. Much of the original furnishings remain. Very good tour guide to answer questions. Well worth the visit if you are in the area. One of 36 homes affiliated as Historic New England. Be sure to check dates the house is open, it is open Wed... More
