Family fun the focus of attractions in the lakes region

From exploring mansions to feeding pond fish, there’s a lot for kids to do at Castle in the Clouds

There are so many things for kids to explore at Castle in the Clouds, they’ll want to visit more than once! At the 1914 Lucknow Mansion, they can check out vintage clothing and, on the basement tour, see how the servants lived, or go on a scavenger hunt. (Check the website for other interactive activities.) Outside, there are 28 miles of hiking trails and carriage roads, many of them going past cascading waterfalls. In the winter, the trails are perfect for skiing and snowshoeing. After grabbing a snack and an ice cream at the Cafe in the Clouds, it’s a guarantee that your children will want to buy some fish food there to toss to the trout in Shannon Pond, who jump out of the water for the food.
