GILLETTE CASTLE, EAST HADDAM, CT

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc.

Fall is a beautiful time to go for a drive and take in all the fall foliage.  While driving in East Haddam, CT you might wish to check out Gillette Castle. The late actor and Connecticut native William Gillette, who protrayed Sherlock Holmes on stage, spent more than one million dollars to build this castle at the turn of the century at the top of Seven Sisters.  It was closed for 3 years for maintenance and is now open through Columbus Day from 10am to 4:30pm.  This castle boasts 24 medieval style rooms to explore, along with hiking rails, and breathtaking views.

Parking and hiking is free, but there is a nominal fee for touring the castle.  Ages 13 and up is $5.00; 6 to 12 is $2.00; ages under 5 years of age are free.  To keep the prices down no charges are accepted, only cash.

Val- This sounds really exciting. Have you seen it. Did you take any pictures? If you did, please share them with us. I would love to see this castle. Castles intrigue me.

Laura.. I went to Gillette Castle over 15 years ago.. at that time I didn't have my camera or care that much about castles.. not the way I do now.  If I do go back, I'll take some pictures and post them.  Thanks for mentioning that.. wouldn't have thought of it.

I hear they decorate the Castle for Christmas.  I live so close, I should take my kids to check it out this year.  Thanks for reminding me of it.  Regards.
