Did the Castle tour only. Very impressive grounds and structure. renovations (which are still ongoing on upper levels) were also very impressive and interesting to see the before and after photos and stories. Interesting backstory to the whole castle. Highly recommend a visit.

A beautiful old castle. Extravagance from days of old. Seeing the old architecture was incredible and how the rich lived and spent their wealth over a hundred years ago was fascinating.

If you are visiting Thousands Island, Boldt Castle is a must on your list. Heart Island is so breathtaking and relaxing. I could spend an entire day on this island just taking in all the beautiful scenery.

If you like castles this is well worth the $20. Take a few hours to go through the whole building and surrounding grounds.
