Castle in the Clouds is my must see recommendation to anyone telling me they are visiting the lakes region. The views are spectacular from the carriage house patio where you can get a nice meal, listen to music a few nights a week or just go to look through the huge binoculars. The Castle itself is a step back in... More

The castle itself is really interesting and you could not ask for a better view. Any where you look you see for miles. A quick 10-15 minute presentation is given about the history of the place and owners and then you are free to walk around. It's a throw back in time looking at a place that was way a... More

Self tour which is great. They started out with a little talk and then sent you on your way. Inside the building there were staff to talk with you about the items in the rooms if you wanted information. The gardens were beautiful and you were able to spend as much time as possible in whichever room you liked. Pictures... More

Castle in the Clouds is a beautiful area to spend the day. There are fabulous hiking trails, horseback riding and incredible views. The restaurant on site had great food (and drinks) but you could pack picnic and enjoy that as well. The Castle tour is a little difficult with small children because they cannot touch the antiques. (I spent most... More

The Castle is beautifully maintained and a visit there is a great way to spend a beautiful summer day in central NH. Our visit though was most fantastically highlighted by going to the Carriage House for lunch on the patio. This is our second trip in two (2) years - and one we will do again. The extensive, gracious menu... More

Wish the weather was more cooperative this day as we would have liked to try some of the hiking trails, but luckily we did get to see the waterfall area before rain picked-up. The castle is very nice although we were wishing for more history behind this past mogul.

My family and I love it here! We have come three times and we still get blown away by the views. The story at the beginning of the tour is very informative as well. We have also done the horseback ride tours through the woods which we love. I would highly recommend coming here!

I had heard good things about visiting the Castle in the Clouds, so I had to see it for myself. We followed the GPS to get there, but I would suggest watching the signs because we got there through the exit route and missed the turn offs for the water falls. And they closed at 4, so we were unable... More

This is an excursion that brings you back in time to learn about a period of wealth and grandeur in a beautiful setting. The drive from the gatehouse to the "Carriage House" is not for the faint of heart but there are scenic pull-offs along the way. The trolleys to the Castle itself run every 15 min. and benches are...

An amazing place to visit. The views are breathtaking. You should stop on the way up to the Castle and view the waterfalls. Wear comfortable shoes. Dining there is a must. The food was excellent, fresh and delicious. Our server Kayla was excellent.
