Castle in the Clouds

Beautiful Windows Showcase the Magnificent View

Lucknow is a beautiful mountaintop estate located in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. Built by Tom and Olive Plant between 1913-1914, the house opened to the public in 1959. It has been known as “Castle in the Clouds” ever since. One look out the window and you will certainly see why.

Situated high in the Ossipee Mountain Range, the “castle” sports some magnificent views. Skilled hand craftsmanship is evident in every aspect of both the interior and exterior.

It was the artistic detail of the stained glass window inserts that immediately grabbed my attention as I toured the house. From there, the view of the surrounding gardens, mountains, lake and clouds was breathtaking.

I last visited Castle in the Clouds back in October 2009 during the peak of the fall foliage season. To view more of my images from that trip click here.
