About Us

Castle in the Clouds provides anywhere from one hour to a full day of enriching activities for all ages. It is home to Lucknow, an Arts and Crafts-style 16-room mansion built in the Ossipee Mountains in 1914. The estate provides one of the most stunning views of New Hampshire’s largest lake and the surrounding mountains, and is surrounded by more than 5,500 acres of conserved land.

Enjoy self-guided tours of the mansion and guided tours of its basement, learning about the building’s unique construction, ultra-modern for its era appliances and technology, and more about its century-long history. The on-site Carriage House offers dining in its highly-acclaimed restaurant, serving both classic comfort foods and unique twists on traditional fare with panoramic lakeside views on the terrace or on foul weather days in vintage horse stalls.

You can also spend time walking or hiking along 28 miles of trail managed by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, taking in the beauty and activity of the New Hampshire ecosystem while weaving along brooks and streams, exploring seven different waterfalls, and taking breaks at epic vistas. Or, attend one of the many programs, events, and activities available for all interests, including live music, guided hikes, stargazing nights, behind-the-scenes tours, and more. While in New Hampshire, visit Castle in the Clouds to connect with history, nature, and the beauty of the Granite State!
