If you decide to visit Wilson Castle, try to look past the falling bricks and peeling plaster. This place has the most beautiful stained glass windows, amazing woodwork and art.

This castle is cool, but it IS over 100 years old. It's weathered and a little rough around the edges. It IS undergoing renovations, but keeping that in mind it IS still an amazing place to see and tour. Just walking up from the driveway,...More

This is not far from Rutland and is a fun place to visit. Lots of interesting rooms and things to see. And when you step outside you'll see some really scenic countryside. This is easily accessible by car or bicycle.

As you drive up the eroded unpretentious driveway and see the brick face of the building in disrepair, you wonder if this was worth the trip. Don't worry, this mansion will leave you in awe. There is much to be impressed by with its original...More

This castle was incredible. The decor was amazing, and there was such a wide array of cultures represented. It's hard to find that all in one place. We hope the restoration work is able to be completed so that this historical location isn't lost!

Make sure to take a side-trip to the town of Proctor to visit the historic Wilson's Castle. The tour guides are kind and patient and offer you either a guided or self-guided tour. Check out the beautiful antiques, stained glass windows, and impressive woodwork. Denise,...More

Great large house from the 1800's showing off the styles and tastes of the original owner. However, it needs a major face lift and some TLC, would be great if Vermont would assist the owners to keep the house as a historical site. Over all...More
