If you are ever in the Rutland, VT area, you must visit the Wilson Castle. Great history, architecture, a one of a kind treasure that the whole family will enjoy. 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

Hello. I love Wilsons Castle. It has been many years since I stopped in but I always enjoyed it there. I grew up in Vermont and would stop in on my way to Saratoga Springs New York every summer. I now live in Virginia Beach and would love to come back up 4 a visit sometime. Such a beautiful state... More

We visited on July 10, 2014 just a day or two after a severe storm had passed through the area. The bumpiness of the entry to the parking area foreshadowed what was soon to follow. Although it was a beautiful day no one was visiting and, in fact, we were later told that possibly only one person had visited the... More

For some reason, even though I have been to several other castles in other states, this one was the spookiest! We also drove by this attraction, as the sign is very small & the GPS is spooked too... so it keeps going ~ha ha! We just visited here in June 2014 & the parking lot was EMPTY at noon, so... More

We were so angry thinking our GPS was wrong but lo and behold we drove by Wilson's Castle three times before we saw it. When we realized we at the spot we felt cheated. First this does not really look much like a castle and secondly, it was being renovated and looked abandoned. It might be a good place for... More
