We travelled here on a 1000 Islands boat tour departing from Rockport, ON. You'll need your passport to get off on Heart Island and tour the castle and grounds. Pack a lunch to eat in the lovely picnic area on the castle grounds or on the dock. Tour the castle at your own pace - it's HUGE (120 rooms) but... More

The amazing work being done on the island has brought history back for those lucky enough to travel to Alexandria Bay and experience Heart Island. A trip to the 1000 Islands is not complete with a visit to the castle.

This is just fabulous and has been restored to perfection. A must see while visiting the area. I loved it and the story that comes along--there is a shot movie on the second floor. The house also has elevators.

We have not been here in two years. We got to see three newly renovated rooms. Always amazing to see what it would have looked like. Very sad to see people are still defacing the walls on the unfinished rooms. The new garden is beautiful!! The children's playhouse was also open again, amazing to see that! We also learned a...

Arrived with friends by boat. You can tie up right at their dock. Entry fee is $9 US which is fair. Canadians have to pass through US customs before they can visit, so Bring your passport! The story behind the construction of the castle is fascinating and tragic. The restoration is an ongoing project so you get a good idea... More

We have taken family and friends to visit 3 times this year. Every year you get to see the progress. Beautifully taken care of. Take a picnic lunch as there are many picnic sites with beautiful views.

We took the 2 hour cruise out of Alexandria Bay via Uncle Sams. We got the tickets the night before (recommended because it was insanely busy on July 3rd). We took the first cruise in the morning out (10am??) and cruised around with a great tour guide. We ended up moving indoors from the top seating (hot, sunny) and were... More

I first visited Boldt Castle in 1971 it was a ruin. I was astounded at the restoration that have been under taken and what has emerged. Do not miss the yacht house. Very romantic destination.
