Forgot to write a review when we visited in September last year. Thought the house and views were stunning. House is a perfect piece of social and architectural history and has been maintained very well - it's preservation is similar to the 'National Trust' houses we have in the UK. Definitely worth a visit.

One rainy spring day in 2014, while visiting friends neat Wolfboro, NH, we were searching for something interesting to do... I had heard about Castle in the Clouds and suggested this, so we went on a search. I have to admit, it IS a bit hard to find, but once we finally found our way, it was such a great... More

Most days, the view is spectacular. You can get to the grounds for free by going up the road north of the main entrance. This road is used by hikers using the Ossipee trails, and the large trucks hauling out the super-pure water from the bottling plant. If you see that the view is great and/or you just want to...

Our visit to Castle in the Clouds was found by accident after having to cut short our trip up Mt Washington, due to snow and ice higher up. What a stroke of luck, this was one of our most enjoyable visits. There are lovely walks before getting up to the house, don't rush it, take your time. The house itself... More

The Castle is a wonderful place to hike, have lunch, or just bring a picnic lunch and feed the giant Rainbow Trout! The views of the lake are amazing!!!

A bit off the beaten path but absolutely worth it! We love house museums and this one had so much to offer. Exceptionally restored. The exterior is very ecclectic and interesting. The views of the mountains and lake are spectacular and worth a visit on their own. Rooms are full of period pieces that really showcase the time. It is... More

Mountainside restored estate overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. Spectacular vistas, especially during leaf-peeper season, but lovely any time. Moderate prices for moderate menu, go for the history and the view!

This has one of the most breathtaking views in all of the Ossipee Mountain Range. You can see Lake Winnipesaukee laid out in front of you along with Lake Wentworth and Ossipee Lake. The castle itself is a wonder to behold. The stone work is magnificent! There is a trout pond on the property full of huge rainbow trout that... More

We were a bit taken aback by the cost of admission, but once we saw the castle, the gardens and the amazing scenery, all was forgiven. The castle AKA museum is not only a perfect preservation of the time, it demonstrates the amazing creativity of the owner, who was clearly way ahead of his time. Leave plenty of time to... More

We decided to do this one day on a recent stay in the area. I was shocked by the entry fee ($16.00 per person) but it wound up being worth the money - we spent several hours there. We did the short walk to the falls, toured the mansion, had lunch outdoors on the deck with a stunning view and... More
