My wife talked me into coming to the Castle and I'm happy that I'm a good husband and listened to her. So much here to see and do. The house is an early 1900's time capsule. Incredible architecture and innovations for the time. There's a pipe organ in the living room! My favorite was Mr. Plants secret room where he... More

The volunteers are excellent and have a lot of knowledge of the era. The setting is beautiful. They have added back some of the original furniture. I appreciated being allowed to walk around the house at my own pace. We did not eat in the cafe, but will next time just because of the fantastic view!

Little known and a bit out of the way, but worth the trip. A lovingly saved and restored home atop a mountain overlooking lake Winnepesauke. The beauty of this restored estate is that you can leisurely wonder about the house in a self guided tour, with the information pamphlet. No one rushes you, no one forces you to move on... More

This was our third trip up here and second outdoor lunch date here surrounded by the beautiful mountain views! The menu is not a large one, but the food is very good. I recommend eating outside on the stone patio but if you are not the outdoorsy type the indoor dining area is cool too because they made seating areas... More

A trip to visit Castle in the Clouds (Lucknow) is a must if you are in the Lakes Region. The Carriage House has a restaurant - you can eat inside in one of the former stalls or outside on the veranda with amazing views of the mountains and Lake Winnipesaukee. But the Castle is the highlight - interesting but sad... More

I visited on August 8, 2014 with my sister. We started out at the entrance where the staff told us about the map & the places we could stop along the way. I would have loved to hike to the waterfall but unfortunately I broke my foot in July and was wearing a walking boot, although I've seen pictures and... More

We recently visited Castle in the clouds as a last minute change of plans. There were adults, young children and teens with us. The kids were all complaining at first but quickly changed their minds. We all had a great time hiking. We stopped at the fall of songs and hiked along the waterfall. It was not a very hard... More

If you're visiting the Lakes Region and have even a passing interest in American history, this is a must for your itinerary! The Castle itself is chock-full of early 20th century artifacts, and the docents are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Plus, the views are indescribably stunning. The Castle can keep a family busy all day, offering many hiking trails and... More

I recently visited the Castle and had a great tour of the house, what a beautiful place it is and the views are just spectacular, cannot be missed. We had a great trolley bus driver who told us to eat at the Carriage house for lunch. He told us that the kitchen had a lady chef and the food was... More

I have been going to Castle in the Clouds since it opened to the public when I was a child. It never fails to disappoint with it beautiful views and gorgeous architecture. The new owners, a trust set up to preserve the "castle" is doing a terrific job of saving the building and retrieving it to its former glory, down... More
