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

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.
