  • The whole experience of getting here is totally worth it. Depending on which location you are coming from you will pass Town of Meridith NH. Has great waterfront views and Eateries. Castle in the Clouds is open only certain tim w of year. After Entering the main entry point , it is a very scenic drive up the hill. There is a waterfall and a curiously large rock. The estate at the top and the views are beautiful.
  • After checking the site on line to make sure they were open. I spent two hours driving to get there to find out the place was closed. Not happy. The views overlooking the lakes region was spectacular. Beautiful. Still went all the way to the top. Perhaps I’d have a different and better review if the place was open
  • Love this place. The views are incredible. The grounds are gorgeous. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and make it a fun learning experience. Highly recommended.
  • The place reeks of snobbery; from the cost to the staff. The waitress in the restaurant was the only person who actually smiled and gave us any type of service. The house orientation guide (Joanne) was the equivalent of a horrible school teacher that attempts to control the class with snide remarks and commands. It ruined the whole experience of the house. The hostess in the restaurant blatantly ignored us and attempted to seat the party in line after us first. We protested and she got an attitude; didn't ask whether we wanted to sit inside or out and assumed we'd rather sit in the hot sun rather than the cooler interior. We had to insist otherwise - again we were met with an attitude. Although the waitress we had was very sweet and helpful, the food brought to us was the worst we've had since we began visiting New Hampshire many years ago. The soup was served lukewarm, the hamburger bun was cold as ice in the middle, the burger I requested mid-rare was burnt to a crisp and tiny. The whole experience was just a joke at that point. We left feeling like we'd wasted half a day of the limited time we had to spend in the lakes region. The whole place has such an attitude of "I don't care" and it left us feeling like we don't care for the place either.
  • Total rip-off for the scenic drive ticket. For the €20 price, all you can do is drive up to the buffet shop and restaurant where you have the privilege of spending more money. You're not even allowed a look at the outside of the house/castle. Views are OK but no better than elsewhere. Save your money and go elsewhere.
