  • The grounds, gardens, and mansion are impeccably maintained. While not as grand or opulent as the Newport Mansions, the mansion is beautiful and grounds/gardens are some of the prettiest in New Englan...  more »

  • That's the place of few where you can spend time and feel three past. Nice and clean place. Well restavrated. A really huge area. Bring some water with you. No wending machines there.
  • Castle Hill is so gorgeous historical historical place. Our family love this Italian Renaissance-style villa with stucco walls. Surely we'll come back there to find more interesting beautiful details.
  • Great place, didn't have time to stop by for too long, but I took some pictures because the place is beautiful inside the building and outside..
  • Beautiful architecture, views & decor! Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon exploring the north shore!
  • So many things to see. I would recommend looking into the tour times before hand. They offer an array of different tours through out the week including a tour of the second floor, landscaping tour and casino tour. The latter 2 can only be done on specific days/times and are well worth it. If you like historical locations and walking I recommend putting 4+ hours aside while visiting. Tours tend to be 1hr+, each. The ground floor and land is open to all without a tour guide.
