We've been to Bolt many times. We are always impressed by the size, the workmanship and the history. This is a good trip for any one, but kids really love it!

Bolt Castle Loved it! Love history? It's a good place to go visit. The castle as been restored but they kept to original idea. You even have picture of what it looked liked when the Castle construction stop when the gentleman wife died. Since it was a gift for her...he never finished it because she died suddenly...such a romantic story.... More

Very interesting castle that is being remodeled. Story of the castle is compelling. Spend about 2 hours here. Also go over to the yacht house. You will spend about a half hour there, not including the boat ride back and forth.

The island is wonderful with much to see. There are varied buildings to view and wonderful grounds.There are benches and tables available. I recommend taking a picnic lunch and allowing at leat 2-3 hours to visit.

A must do if you're in 1000 islands, it's so beautiful wonderfully kept. A wedding was taking place during my visit but that didn't interrupt the tour. Every bit of the castle is beautifully kept.

Me and my husband visited on the last day of the season. It had rained periodically through the day, but I wouldn't change any of it. The castle and the scenery were beautiful with the fall backdrop. I would highly recommend visiting in the fall. I did not know any of the history before visiting the castle and was surprised... More

It's really improved since the last time I was there 10 years ago. Much more to see and it's nice to see their not only just keeping it up but restoring to what was formally there. It's a great piece of history that you should visit. While it's a sad story that lead to the castle being ultimately abandoned, we... More

This is a must see when in the area. We took uncle sam's boat tour to the island and were awestruck by it's beauty. Altho the most beautiful part of the experience isn't even the castle. It's the tragic love story behind it and the beautiful island. Currently, only the main level and half of the second level has been... More
