Enjoyed the views and you can just hike around if you do not want to see the house but I strongly suggest it.

I have been visiting Castle in the Clouds for over fifty years. This carefully cared for and visitor friendly operation has improved and become a truly enjoyable and worthy destination.

The access road is 2 miles long up a twisty mountain road. The staff are friendly and very familiar with the house and it's... More

We spent the day at the mansion. The lunch was really good. We ate outside, under an umbrella as it was a hot day. Up on the mountain, there was a nice breeze. The views were great of lake Winnipesakee. I love old stuff, so this 1914 mansion was very interesting for me. I liked that we could wander through... More

The historians sharing the story of this 'castle in the clouds' were very well detailed and interesting. The original owner, Thomas Plant was well before time when he designed/build this fabulous home in 1913/1914. The grounds outside, as well as inside the home are very well maintained. Well worth the visit to hear the story of this man and his... More

It is a great place to visit. It was a misty day but we could see a far distance. The house itself was very beautiful out and inside. The inside was done up very good to the days of it's time. It amazing to see what they had in there time and compare it to the modern day things. Yes,... More

If you don’t want to pay to tour the house and just want to see the views of Lake Winnipausakee, you can get a map at the entrance and they’ll show you how to go up Ossippee Park Rd to the back entrance to the carriage house. There is a café here where you can get lunch, or you can... More

Beautiful architecture coupled with outstanding mountaintop views of Lake Winnepesaukie NH make this site one that is not to be missed. Add in a lovely dining venue with very good food, and you have a long afternoon to spend in the best way. Horse and buggy ride or horseback ride add to your day. It's amazing.
