What a beautiful place. The views were breathtaking. There was no rushing and the people there to answer questions were on point with tid-bits of information, both noticeable and secrets built into the house.

We drove about 30minutes from Wolfeboro to Castle in the Clouds. Recommend for adults, as probably lost on children and you pay per person not per car. There is a cute little hike to a beautiful waterfall and stables to ride horses along the trail. We ate lunch on the patio at the carriage house-delicious lobster roll and crabcakes and... More

A classic early 1900s mansion, with a lot to see throughout. The work that has been done and continues to be done is phenomenal. And the gardens are a sight to see as well, with a lot of attention to detail

We enjoyed our afternoon at Lucknow, and I’m glad we went. The grounds are beautiful and the extensive acreage on top of a hill an enjoyable way to while away several hours. The high point was lunch on the stone veranda looking out on the vista with lakes and hills below, a gourmet salad and glass of nice white wine.... More

My husband and I enjoyed the Castle a few days ago. Had lunch on the patio. It was delightful and well worth the wait to be seated. Enjoyed a glass of wine and the gorgeous view overlooking the lake and mountains. Our waitress was very nice. Food was great! The house is amazing! I would love to live in it!... More

During our vacation we visited Castle in the Clouds. Who knew that there was at least one castle in New Hampshire? We do now. This is an amazing place to visit. As you drive into the area, take a moment to stop and see a nice waterfall, a short walk from a small parking area. There is a second small... More

Both of us had been here before but it had been years so a recent visit was in order. Arrived about 12:30 and enjoyed the scenic drive to the carriage house. The road in is a one way. So plan to stop along the way for the short walk to the waterfall and the other scenic viewpoint. Continue on past... More

This was the home of an early 20th century businessman who literally went from rags to riches and, unfortunately, back to rags during his lifetime. A brief orientation about the life of Thomas Plant and the history of the mansion is given upon arrival and then guests are invited and encouraged to tour the stunningly restored rooms and grounds on...
