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

This attraction was one of the main reasons for our trip to New Hampshire, and it did not disappoint. The thrills began with actually trying to navigate the road from the entry gate to the parking area; one needs to drive very carefully, but the views are spectacular. Then comes the trolley ride from the parking area to the main... More

I wish I could live in this house! There are gorgeous views from every window! Mountains all around and you can also see lake Winnipasauki! make sure you stop and walk to see the waterfall in the woods, it's along the drive up to this beautiful house.

this well worth the money. The views are spectacular. The Waterfall was great. The Pebble was great. The Guides were very informative. Who knew that some of technology was available at that time.

If you are visiting the Castle (well worth the view even if you aren't into old estates) do take time to check the lunch out at the Carriage House. We went today, a brisk but sunny foliage day, on the heels of a hike in the Conservation Trust land surrounding the Castle. We were able to eat on the terrace,... More

Beautiful and luxurious, this was definitely worth an afternoon out of our busy schedules. I especially loved the gardens, with their mountain and lake views, and am looking forward to going back to hike the trails - met someone who said they were his favorite hiking in the entire White Mountain range. The guides were very knowledgable. The patio restaurant... More

We were recommended a tour of this area, long scary climb up to the visitors center but it was beautiful. We rode the shuttle to the castle and toured inside and out, it was a perfect day and a beautiful sight.

Locals and visitors alike must drive up into the Ossipee Mountains to tour a mansion built 100 years ago that was the best that money could buy. All around the estate are breathtaking views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding mountains. The luncheon available below the castle at the carriage house is very nice. The trip is not complete without... More

A local recommended we visit Castle in the Clouds, and we are so glad we took the drive. Built 100 years ago, the 10k square foot castle is just breathtaking. The view of Lake Winnipesaukee is unparalleled. If you're in the area, just go.
