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

We visited Castle in the Clouds this past week and Oh - what a treat. The Lucknow estate is beautifully preserved and a treat for sore eyes. It is not intimidating, but welcoming and reflects the care that the conservation foundation has bestowed on it. - The views of the surrounding countryside from each of the rooms is outstanding.

Friends and I spent a gorgeous afternoon at the stunning Lucknow Estate, Caste in the Clouds. The entrance fee of $16 allowed us to tour the house. We started with lunch on the restaurant terrace with the best view of almost any restaurant I've been to. (Two Oceans restaurant at the Cape Of Good Hope is one of the few... More

This 1914 Arts and Crafts mansion is not to be missed. Situated on top of a mountain with 360 degree view of New Hampshire 's Ossipee Valley, the home has an extraordinary history. It is carefully maintained now by a local, private association. Historical documents, articles, books, and displays of clothing, furniture, and accessories throughout the mansion convey the life...

If your ever in the area you MUST stop here and check it out. It's cheap for a quick tour and you can walk around and enjoy the scenery! Just absolutely breathtaking! They also offer horse back riding which we couldn't do because it was raining. What a beautiful place!

We had been to Castle in the Clouds before, many years ago, but decided to head back this year with our 13 year old and 10 year old. Thought they'd be up for a little bit of architectural history and a lunch with a view :) We all loved our time there immensely! After the admission booth, there is something... More
