Sheila and Andy were my guides and they were awesome. I met the owner, Denise too. So much history behind this castle and home. Beautiful artwork and the stair case was divine. When you're in Wilson Castle, you feel like you've stepped back in time....More

This was once magnificent, but is in a pretty bad state of repair. It’s worth seeing for the amazing woodwork, stained glass and other features. I guess it’s privately owned so they don’t have funds to restore it in any meaningful way at the present...More

Give some people credit for lovingly trying to restore a beauty of a mansion.....several past owners did a painful injustice to a remarkable old building which needs more care.....the ceilings and stain glass are stunning!

We visited Wilson Castle several years ago, and found it to be a very fascinating place. It sounds like more of the building is open for touring than when we were there many years ago. If you are looking for a fully restored property...then this...More

Having read about this place, we decided to find it on a day trip from Killington. We were the only people on the grounds which looked sadly in need of much repair with lots of downed bricks and scaffolding in the rear of the house....More
