Castle in the Clouds

Day 3 | 10 a.m.
On Top of the World at Castle in the Clouds


Take an eccentric millionaire with money to burn, add in a 1,300-foot-high mountaintop overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee, and you’ve got the right ingredients for a lakeside hideaway built to epic proportions. Castle in the Clouds is an iconic turn-of-the-century stone and wood mansion boasting some impressive modern marvels for the early 1900s, including intercoms built into the house and surround showers. Take a tour of the 16-room estate itself or a horseback ride through the miles of trails snaking across the 5,500-acre property – or just wander the gardens for views of the mountains and beyond.
