Welcome...

Boldt Castle in the 1000 Islands Region of the St. Lawrence River stands as a remembrance of the magnificence of a bygone era . . . a monument of love on Heart Island of George C. Boldt for his wife Louise.

If you haven't seen Boldt Castle lately, you haven't seen Boldt Castle.

Visit Heart Island, imagine the magnificence that might have been. Wander through Boldt Castle and let your thoughts take you into another world. This romantic Island provides the setting for the saddest love story ever told.

The Boldt Yacht House, Wellesley Island, is the new home to the 1892-built Kestrel, a 63-foot steam yacht similar to those that were popular on the St. Lawrence River at the turn-of-the-century.

The Kestrel was donated in early August to the Thousand Islands Bridge Authority for public viewing. This magnificent yacht has original mahogany and hardwood paneling cabins, a wheelhouse, coal stove, sinks and hand pumps.

Come see a fully functioning yacht like the ones popular during Boldt Castle and the 1000 Islands heyday. The yacht is docked at the Boldt Yacht House.
