The castle was beautiful! It's a definite must see if you're in the area, the boat ride is very short! We didn't get the audio tour, but other people said good things!

The story about the castle is the place to start. Then go and see it for yourself. My wife and family/friends have watched over the last 20+ years watch this place be renovated back to the vision Mr Boldt had for his castle. The workmanship and attention to detail is amazing.

This is the reason to go to Alex bay. We go every few years and each time more work has been done and the results are great. Words do not describe this place. The history, the story behind it, and now the restoration. GO. You will not regret it.

A beautiful love story about George and Louise Boldt, the castle is a tribute to Louise. A tragic love story.

Boldt island and Heart Castle are an absolute must see when in the 100 islands. My wife and I came here 35 years ago when the place was literally graffiti sprayed ruins. The 1000 bridge association has done an amazing job of restoring this magnificent gem. I would highly recommend a visit.

If you go to Alexandria Bay, do not miss touring the Boldt Castle. First, it is very inexpensive to tour. You do have to take a boat shuttle out to it (and back) and that cost $9. Entry onto the grounds then is an additional $9. Compare this price to a place like the Biltmore Mansion and it is a... More

Boldt Castle was absolutely amazing. It is ALOT of walking and could be difficult for someone walking with a cane or being pushed in a wheelchair to navigate the grounds although there is an elevator inside for assistance. Make sure you watch the movie. Forgot the IPAD narrative as you can really figure out on your own what each room... More
