Castles and Cruises

Boldt Castle

On Heart Island, Alexandria Bay, NY in the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River.

George Boldt built this 120-room Rhineland castle as a gift for his wife, but abandoned the project in his grief after her untimely death.   Accessible by boat.   Undergoing magnificent restoration.  A popular destination for wedding parties.

May through October.           315/482-9724 or 800/847-5263

Singer Castle

On Dark Island, Chippewa Bay, NY in the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River.

A contemporary of George Boldt, Frederick G. Bourne of New York City had this castle built as a ‘hunting’ retreat for his family. Italian stonecutters cut granite to shape this 3-story, 28-room castle with a 5-story clock tower and elaborate boathouse.

Honeymooners often rent rooms at the Castle for the ultimate romantic experience.
