The story of the castle is beautiful (although the locals tell me different versions). They've been renovating for years and it's starting to pay off. It's a beautiful place, very popular for weddings. Great part of a boat tour or just take a ferry out.... go inside, take pictures, drink it up!

This was a part of the Thousand Island boat tour. The homes and the beautiful landscapes around the islands are wonderful but the tour of Boldt Castle was something of a spectacular nature. Great engineering and craftsmanship all around. Don't drive by this one is is a must see.

Loved the boat ride, the tour guide presentation and the island visit. The kids will enjoy the ride through islands and under the international bridge.

We have been to Boldt Castle many times over the years. Watching it turn from a dilapidated, damaged, history piece to an amazing view of the love and commitment that died with his wife. The tragedy was left to the elements and vandals for many years and the renovations over the years are outstanding, many of which have used the... More

I snuck away for an afternoon to see this. I hopped on a boat last minute and got the last ride of the day. I wished I had more time once I got there. They did a beautiful job of restoring what they were allowed to do. My favorite spots though were the places they weren't allowed to touch. There... More

We spent the afternoon visiting the yacht house and the castle. This place is very impressive and beautiful. The history was interesting. The people who are restoring the castle are doing an excellant job. We would not have known of this are if a person at the Indiana Dunes hadn't recommended it.

We've been to Bolt many times. We are always impressed by the size, the workmanship and the history. This is a good trip for any one, but kids really love it!

Bolt Castle Loved it! Love history? It's a good place to go visit. The castle as been restored but they kept to original idea. You even have picture of what it looked liked when the Castle construction stop when the gentleman wife died. Since it was a gift for her...he never finished it because she died suddenly...such a romantic story.... More
