Inetesting looking building in crummy area. Has some good views. Items on display could have come from a garage sale. Needs rehab ASAP. Only worth a drive by. (But only with your windows rolled up.)

Recently revisited Lambert mainly for pictures around the grounds. Getting there is pretty easy. It's on Valley Road off Rt 19 (which is not far from 80, 46 & the GSP). Lambert Castle is part of the Garret Mountain Reservation. It's a popular spot for wedding photo shoots. I've been up here on several occasions & seen wedding parties on... More

This is something the harkens back to the days when America had few museums. It is an historic home that has what amount to local curios. Still it is worth a look. The building has been refurbished/restored and the details are intriguing. but.. it is only worth maybe 30 minutes. Opened Wed-Sun.

We love visiting historic homes, and Lambert Castle didn't disappoint. Fascinating family history; beautifully restored rooms; interesting displays of artifacts from another time. I especially appreciate how we are able to view the exhibits at our leisure---no tour required. Exploring places such as Lambert Castle is the best way to learn and experience history.

From the tower - Panoramic views of Paterson (Passaic and Bergen Counties also) as you look toward the Manhattan skyline in the distance. The tower is beautifully restored and the top floor observation area is accessible by clean, very well maintained platforms and staircases inside. Lower on the mountain is Lambert Castle. Take a walk around the grounds. For a... More

Charming castle with an endearing history on Garret Mountain. Catholina Lambert, a prominent silk mill owner, built this architectural gem in 1892. The stained glass windows and the dining room are beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous, and it is a worthwhile hour if you are nearby.

My family (parents, myself, my 11 yr-old son, my twenty-something brother) and I visited Lambert Castle during the winter holiday season. At Christmastime, the staff of Lambert Castle decorates the castle's interior with holiday decorations (most are for sale). Every room has a beautiful tree and features different themed items for sale (decorations, foodstuffs, furniture, knick-knacks, etc.) During this sales... More

Lambert Castle is the beautiful home of C Lambert who made a fortune in the silk industry. It is located on Garrett Mountain and has lovely grounds and beautiful views. Built in 1892 it was modeled after an English estate The home contains interesting collections of art and folk art. The docents were great story tellers.

This castle is fascinating with history. It tells the story of when silk industry was in Paterson. It's named after Lambert who was the founder of the silk business. The castle itself is amazing with its architect . And everything else you find in a castle. The views from the castle is awesome!
