Stunning views overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee and Ossipee Mountains

Lucknow or also known as the Castle in the Clouds, is a mansion in Moultonborough, New Hampshire.  Lucknow sits on 5,500 acres on Lee Mountain and overlooks Lake Winnipesaukee and the Ossipee Mountains.  It was built in 1913 by Thomas Plant for his wife Olive Cornelia Dewey.  Thomas Plant made his millions by owning the largest shoe factory in the world.  At the age of 51, Tom Plant sold his business and retired, went to Europe, fell in love with Olive and built this beautiful Castle in the Clouds. 

The mansion was built with state-of-the-art amenities that included interphone system and central vacuum system.  Lucknow mansion is known as an Arts and Crafts architecture, meaning it was built to be in harmony with nature.  The mansion has 16 rooms, a six car garage, a greenhouse, tennis and golf courses, boathouse, a man made lake and much more. 

There is an onsite restaurant, many hiking trails on the property, picnic areas, scenic overlook, waterfalls, horseback riding and more.  Please not that the only way to the mansion however, is by trolley.  Trolleys depart from the Carriage House every 15 minutes.  There is a trail that leads downhill from the lakeside lawn back to the Carriage House if visitors prefer to walk back down.
