Great place to view fall colors
Oct 2021
We did not tour the mansion and just visited the free vista areas. We were here for fall foliage but were disappointed that the trees as seen from the vista point were still mostly green. However, there was a pond on the other side of the parking lot and there was a tree with gorgeous red leaves. The pond also provides great reflection for the fall colors along its shore. Beyond the pond the hill also had great fall colors.

Spectacular Views
Oct 2021
The "Castle in the Clouds" is an historic mansion on top of a mountain - on a 6000 acre estate - built in 1916 ("Lucknow"). It has beautiful deep forest vistas and trails - including impressive falls.
But they have lots of rules and restrictions - and waits - due in part by Covid - but some are just asinine.
The mansion was impressive and the views spectacular.
Overall, it was worth the trip (and the hassles).

Really worth the admission price. The home is furnished in the time period . The view is worth the admission alone.

What a lovely house, beautiful garden and spectacular view. Well preserved/restored. A house in the arts & crafts style, wonderfully designed and realized. Highly rated for everyone!

Great Visit
Sep 2021
We lucked upon a stunning day to go up to the Castle in the Clouds and everything was perfect! A scenic ride up the carriage trail gets you to the parking area. From there after a modest admission fee, they tram you up the rest of the way.
The staff at the castle explain the history and the owner who built it at the turn of the century. Staff is extremely knowledgable! After our tour, we spent an hour walking the trails through the woods and waterfalls. A fantastic day and I highly recommend.

Still Great
Aug 2021
Another really nice visit . This time I want to make sure to compliment the employees. They were all pleasant, competent and ready to answer questions. The person in the garden was especially helpful with questions about plants and animals (little frogs!!).

It was not crowded and we did not feel rushed.

We had sandwiches down the hill (on Aug. 31) and the food and service were great. Root Beer floats!! It was good to have that option as opposed to the crowds of Meredith.

Needed more time
Jul 2021 • Friends
We were on a bus tour so we had a limited amount of time. We did get to go through the estate and walked to a couple of close waterfalls. We didn’t have time to see the carriage house, gift shop or explore anything else. You could easily spend a half a day or more here. The views from the estate house were absolutely beautiful!

A fun thing to do
Jul 2021 • Family
Very interesting tour. We only did the first and second floor which is self guided but there are educated staff members all over eager to tell you about each area of the house. The views in just about every room are also amazing!
