There is a nice trail leading to a cascading waterfall that you can stop and see on the drive to the house. At the visitor center, you park your car and then take a trolley up to the house where you are given about a 10 minute talk about the history of the house and its owners. Touring the inside of the house is self-guided, although there are volunteer docents around to answer any questions. You can get a beautiful view of Lake Winnipesaukee from the house. A military discount is available.

We have been here several times and it never disappoints. We brought guests with us form Texas on this tour. The historic home is being renovated and it is fun to watch that progress each time we go. The grounds are beautiful and suitable for walks/hikes.
Lunch in the old stable, which is now a restaurant is recommended. Food and service are good.
Bug spray is recommended this time of year when outside.

I am not to sure where to start.

First, the home itself, the tour, when considering when this was built - spectacular.

There is really nothing like this I've ever seen. Sure, I've toured a few vintage homes, usually they are small, filled with antique trinkets and tools of the life. However, this facility is more about the home itself. From the amazing views, to the incredible interior work and physical structure.

In addition to the home, the grounds are sprawling and there are connecting hiking trails, a fish pond, carriage/sled rides and a real nice lunch facility.

If you want to see Lake Winni from on high and without being in a plane, I urge you to stop at Castle in the Clouds. If you want to do some low impact hiking, along with touring one of the most magnificent homes in America - I urge you to stop at Castle in the Clouds.

Sadly - there are no dragons of any sort to be found, but there is a brewery right next door .

More a cozy, homey lodge than castle, fascinating history, killer views. Tour is worth every penny - the money goes toward all the repairs and work needed to keep the buildings and property up. You could spend a day on the surrounding property, hiking, horseback riding, picnicking. We went in the "wrong" entrance (in the back) and saw the stables and trailheads. We then went in the main entrance, stopped at a view point and walked to a lovely waterfall.
