“Eclectic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

If in the Wiscasset area, this is an interesting house to visit. Somewhat eclectic as house has been used in various ways over the years. Still, some good historical value and worth your time.

“interesting 1807 house in Wiscasset, Maine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

Castle Tucker is a very interesting 1807 house which was remodeled in the late 1800's. Much of the original furnishings remain. Very good tour guide to answer questions. Well worth the visit if you are in the area. One of 36 homes affiliated as Historic New England. Be sure to check dates the house is open, it is open Wed thru Sunday June-Oct. Other homes have even more limited hours.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2010

This house was in family hands until the early 2000's and has almost all original family furnishings. Our guide was excellent. It was like an (enjoyable) history lesson and family saga rolled into one. I highly recommend this tour. FYI- I believe it's in Wiscassett, not Boothbay Harbor.
