Shannon Pond Construction
Due to construction at Shannon Pond, visitors will be unable to
access the dock as well as the hiking trail head that requires crossing the dam.
All hiking trails can still be accessed via the trail head behind Cones in the Clouds
and the trail head behind the stables. Visitor access will be restored to this area
as soon as possible. This construction has been funded by a federal grant
from the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund.

NEW: Castle Basement Tours!
Discover the secrets of the Castle’s basement in a one-hour guided tour
highlighting the Castle’s unique construction, ultra-modern appliances and amenities,
and the lives of the servants who helped run and manage the Lucknow Estate in the 1910s and 1920s.

What People are Saying

Well done restoration

We were definitely impressed with the time, effort and expense going into the restoration of Castle in the Clouds. The docents located throughout the building are enthusiastic about answering any questions you might have.  This is a must see if you are in the area.

Fascinating History and Amazing Views

Truly a labor of love in both the original creation and on-going restoration of this wonderful mansion. The technology used in the house seemed way ahead of its time. The design is warm and inviting, not stuffy and formal.

Great place for lunch or dinner!!

Someone told me that Castle in the Clouds now had a restaurant in the stables so I wanted to try it out! The food was delicious and the outside seating view was spectacular!If you eat inside your table is individual horse stalls. The wait staff was very friendly. I will definitely return.
