Rising royally from Heart Island is Boldt Castle, built by George C. Boldt for his wife Louise, on an island he had re-shaped to resemble a heart. The elaborate Rhineland-style castle is exquisite, and includes 120-rooms. drawbridge, Alster Tower, Italian gardens, a Dove-Cote and more. Construction began in 1900, but 4 years later, Louise died suddenly and Boldt , who could not imagine his dream without his wife, stopped construction and never returned to the island. The abandoned, unfinished castle was repaired and opened in 1997 to visitors. The castle is open seasonally and is only accessible by tour boat or personal watercraft. There is a fee to enter.
