I lovely visit on closing day. Docent was quite informative on the history of the house and owner, Mr. Plant. He was an innovative man ahead of his times. Each room was unique and presented well. Views of lake and fall foliage were spectacular.

Toured the Castle and had lunch in the Carriage House. Beautiful old castle in the clouds (literally). Worth the trip.

We (two 60-something American couples) visited while touring the fall colors in the lakes region. Wonderful views from high on a hill overlooking Lake Winnipesauke and surrounding forests. The castle/mansion is something else - built in early 1900s, a fine example of what a lot of wealth could buy in those days. Docents all throughout mansion and running the trolley... More

It is well worth taking the winding road up through the woods to see. The house is in a stunning location overlooking mountains and lakes. The mansion has heaps of arts and craft features such as exposed woodwork, British lead pattern windows, Tiffany glass, and English painted glass panels. The volunteer trolley drivers and house guides are very knowledgable and... More

What a place! If you want to see how the rich folks lived back in the early 1900's this is the place. Over 6300 acres of beautiful land surround this home in the hills of Moultonborough on Mt. Ossipee. Great place to visit when you are in the area. Cost us $14.00 each since we are seniors. Regular price is... More

We visited the area in the beginning of June, which is still considered offseason. Before arriving I called the horse stable to schedule a trail ride. Unfortunately during the offseason trail rides were only held on weekends and we visiting during the week. On the plus side we were the only two people visiting the grounds/mansion. We had the WHOLE... More

We attended a wedding here at Castle in the Clouds and the day could not have been more beautiful. It was 73 degrees, sunny, and no wind for the wedding outside. The view was incredible and stunning at this time of the year. There was some construction going on when we arrived and it was covered in plywood which took... More
