“I can mark this one off my bucket list. Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The way up the mountain with beautiful views to the castle.

Because of vandalism, a tall fence surrounds the building. You can see inside from afar, though.

A picnic table is right beside it. I found myself looking more at the veiw than the stone home. Ate lunch with a couple from Canada. who were hiking the trails.

“A desert gem.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Move over Biltmore and Hearst Castle. Stoke's Castle is not too be missed. 1890's opulance on display in the Nevada high desert. Sunset is incredible. You can see 60 miles to the north and 30 miles to the west. Don't miss it.

“Don't pass through Austin without seeing the Castle”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Built in the late19th century by a wealthy owner of a mining operation, the tall, narrow rock structure was occupied for a few months only. Located up the hill on the west side of town with a spectacular 50-mile view of the valley.
