Wow!

Words really can't describe the beauty of this castle. Must be experienced. A true testament of love and loss. So happy that it's being restored

It's been over 35 years since I first visited Heart Island and Bolt Castle and have been back only once in the in between years. It's absolutely amazing and incredible the progress that has been made in restoring this magnificent historical structure by the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority. It is a must see attraction when visiting this region.

I won't go into a lot of detail but this is a great place to visit. The grounds are stunning. Mr Boldt had a lot of money! He did own the Waldorf Astoria.
