This is a must see in Alex Bay. Beautiful grounds and castle. Amazing craftsmanship of the proposed castle thaw as never finished.

Imagine what it would be like to have your husband build you a castle on Heart Island. Come find out the story and take in fabulous views of the St. Lawrence River.

Hart island is the name of the island that has Bolt's Castle on it. The grounds are well-maintained cured with walking paths around the island. There are several buildings on the island.

The whole place is quite beautiful. A reminder of a long ago time. If you are doing the boat tour, you should do the castle and Island tour, as it's Included in the price. The Island has an area where couples can have a wedding....More

Heart Island is one of the Thousand Islads and home to the Boldt Caslte. The island can only be reached by boat and parking at the pier on the American side is tight.

Pack a picnic-even if you don't like historic homes, you can enjoy the island and pristine property. Relax and watch the boats go by

We drove 4 hours after a Google search showed hours of operation to be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to discover it was closed for the season. This was a wasted day of vacation. Huge disappointment!
