Really nice experience. A few things to see on the drive up, very nice restaurant in the Carriage House and a really interesting house at the top, Lucknow, with stunning views and a "livable" mansion.

We started with lunch at the restaurant out on the patio which was nice. Then we went up by trolley to the Castle, there was some renovations being done at the time, but it was still amazing to walk through. It was a total blast from the past, a group of 6 of us toured it and we had a... More

Although there are stunning views from the Castle, this place is not for families with children under the age of 10. There are plenty of signs stating "Do Not Touch" or "Do Not Sit" which could limit your experience. The staff also has the attitude that children are not welcome. During the orientation, the staff asked my 7 year old... More

The stables at the estate have musical events on Monday evenings. I went to listen to a friend perform. The performance area contains multiple tables with shade provided by umbrellas. It was a perfect summer evening and the view from the patio can't be beat. The food selection was awesome even though it was a bar food selection. This is... More

Revisited after 30+ years. Like brand new. The home is beautiful. The staff very informative and interesting. Learned a lot from them. Enjoyed being able to tour at our leisure. The grounds and view amazing! We also walked to a few waterfalls prior to our getting to the home. Be sure to stop at these easy sites. We would have... More

It was so pretty and amazing the view is breath taking. You get to walk around this museum that has interesting facts and its self guided tour so you can go where ever you like at your own pace. My favorite room was the secret one in the library.

The view is magnificent and the food is so fresh and good, can't wait to come back too bad they will miss the concert but we will be there to... More

Did not know what to expect and was totally amazed. The beautiful house with an interesting story. What a view of Lake Winnipesaukee from the back patio!

My husband and I visited Castle in the Clouds in July 2015; the clouds made the views from the house a little dreary, but the staff is enthusiastic about the work being done on this beautiful home built by an industrialist 100 years ago. You can take a walk along the river, before going from the parking lot to the... More
