Castle in the Clouds

Castle in the Clouds Review

Looking for all the world like a fairy-tale castle, this wonderful mountaintop estate was finished in 1914. The elaborate mansion has 16 rooms, eight bathrooms, and doors made of lead. Owner Thomas Gustave Plant spent $7 million, the bulk of his fortune, on this project and died penniless in 1941. A tour includes the mansion and the Castle Springs water facility on this high Ossippee Mountain Range property overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee; there's also hiking and pony and horseback rides.
