There is a beautiful castle high in the mountains of New Hampshire with views so spectacular that they take your breath away. It is called Castle in the Clouds.

I found a video showing Castle in the Clouds, if you would like to view it and hear some lovely music.
Then, you drive a bit further and you are greeted by the main carriage house to have lunch. We had such beautiful weather, that we ate a delicious lunch on the patio.
Of course they host fairytale weddings.
A trolley awaits you to drive up the even steeper slopes to visit the main house museum.
"Built in 1913-1914 high in the Ossipee Mountain Range, it became open to the public in 1959. The house is an unusual example of the Arts and Crafts architecture in New England." You can read more about the Lucknow Estate History.
TMS architects writes:
"Perched high in the Ossipee Mountain Range in Moultonborough, NH is an iconic, turn-of-the-centruy Arts and Crafts mansion and breathtaking views overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee."
I went to a girls weekend with my daughter, Sarah and her future mother-in-law, Maria, sister-in-law, Sam and a friend Anna. On the last day we drove to Castle in the Clouds for lunch and the tour.
The house has such an interesting history. I was smitten with the beautiful windows in every room.
I wore the man's hat for fun, while these lovely ladies found hats covered in finery. Speaking of finery, I loved the clothing and shoes everywhere from that era.
My daughter, Sarah has been wanting me to go and see this enchanting place for over a year now. She discovered it with Mike on one of their weekend visits to Mike's family get-away nearby. We had a wonderful girls weekend there, and visiting the castle was surely a lovely way to end the weekend.
