I Heart Heart Island
Jul 2021 • Couples
If you love the outdoors consisting of water, birdlife, the built environment, and gardens, this may be the stop for you. There is a lot to be learned here in terms of history, shipwrecks, oil spills, aviary interests, and more. Depending upon the interests of you and the members of your party, everyone takes a different trip inside of their minds. Some will look for the ospreys, loons, eagles, and cormorants. Others will key into the history of Heart Island. Some will ogle the overall design of the built environment and the boats. Wear sun screen, drink plenty of water, bring snacks, and charge those camera batteries.

Beautiful place

Lots of walking - exterior is very hilly, so be prepared! The Castle and accompanying buildings are very interesting as well as beautiful. Be sure to plan a lot of time to explore all parts. Also be sure to include a tour of the Yacht House.

Family visit

We have been here several times over the years. It is nice to come back and see what areas have been finished. Self walk through tour, not rushed, take time. We had kids and teens with us this time, they did ok with walking around the castle and grounds.

Heart Island was amazing
Jul 2020
The Bridge authority is doing a marvelous job restoring this site. Only question I have is they have a room for the Mr Boldt and his Wife, their daughter but nothing for the Son?

Would have enjoyed a live tour
Jul 2020
The island is beautiful and the first two floors well maintained. The app took too long to load so we couldn't access the information. I would have preferred a live tour like Singer Island provides.
