Great old building but needs TLC

Great large house from the 1800's showing off the styles and tastes of the original owner. However, it needs a major face lift and some TLC, would be great if Vermont would assist... read more

It is a shame that the attraction takes fee ($12). This museum has a couple of nice objects, but the building and collection is in horrible condition. The paint is chipped from the walls and ceiling, carpets are worn out, and one of the pictures had a hole in it! The guide was not knowledgeable at all ("I am here... More

This castle was incredible. The decor was amazing, and there was such a wide array of cultures represented. It's hard to find that all in one place. We hope the restoration work is able to be completed so that this historical location isn't lost!

Oh if walls could talk....must have been an interesting story.....but the property is closed. We got lucky and the gate was unlocked so we got to walk around and peak in the windows.

Make sure to take a side-trip to the town of Proctor to visit the historic Wilson's Castle. The tour guides are kind and patient and offer you either a guided or self-guided tour. Check out the beautiful antiques, stained glass windows, and impressive woodwork. Denise, the granddaughter of the last owner, was very kind and welcoming and shared some of... More

Picture taking is allowed throughout the castle and staff will even give you a guided tour. They are currently restoring the property and welcome any donations. Each room is uniquely... More

Great large house from the 1800's showing off the styles and tastes of the original owner. However, it needs a major face lift and some TLC, would be great if Vermont would assist the owners to keep the house as a historical site. Over all worth to see.

This castle is absolutely incredible! Wilson Castle was built in the mid 19th century and stands today as a magnificent part of history and an architectural masterpiece. It is beautifully furnished with original, interesting and unique antiques and art. The furnishings are the same ones that have been in the house for years (in some cases, a hundred years or...

We were staying in Rutland and picked up a brochure at our hotel. Other reviews indicated that it was hard to find but we had no trouble. The road and parking lot were quite bumpy but the castle made it worth it. We were shown a video and then given a long tour by the owner of the castle. We... More

My wife and I picked a beautiful sunny day to vist the castle. We have driven by many times and decided that it was now or never. This castle needs to be viewed through "hazy eyes" to appreciate what it once was and all the history associated with it. The owner and her staff were incredible! That being said the... More
