Beautiful, but needs help.

This castle is so old that it is in need of desperate repair. Just use your imagination to see what it could be.

Probably the most dysfunctional place we have been to almost makes it worth seeing again. Turned in to the joke of the trip in that regard memorable

the castle is in renovations and they are raising money through events. the building is sound but the condition of the walls and ceilings needs repairs. easy to get to - but not well advertised. a worthwhile visit ..

If you decide to visit Wilson Castle, try to look past the falling bricks and peeling plaster. This place has the most beautiful stained glass windows, amazing woodwork and art.

This castle is cool, but it IS over 100 years old. It's weathered and a little rough around the edges. It IS undergoing renovations, but keeping that in mind it IS still an amazing place to see and tour. Just walking up from the driveway, or seeing it from route 3 across the valley, its a real sight to see.... More

This is not far from Rutland and is a fun place to visit. Lots of interesting rooms and things to see. And when you step outside you'll see some really scenic countryside. This is easily accessible by car or bicycle.

As you drive up the eroded unpretentious driveway and see the brick face of the building in disrepair, you wonder if this was worth the trip. Don't worry, this mansion will leave you in awe. There is much to be impressed by with its original stain glass windows, skylights, painted ceilings and furnishings . The tour guide will play music... 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.
