Boldt Castle sits on the St. Lawrence River at the New York and Canadian border. It is one of the most popular castle wedding venues in New York for weddings and vow renewals.


From its very conception Boldt Castle’s historic halls and grounds were filled with romance. Built in 1900 by George Boldt as a tribute to the love he felt for his wife Louise, today it remains a testament to their enduring love story. Surrounding the 19th century home are numerous gardens containing thousands of flowers as well as several stone structures of the same era, including the Gazebo, Alster Tower, Dove Cote and the Powerhouse.


Reservations are affordable despite the high demand. Weddings start at just $200.
