Castle in the Clouds Tour

 After earning his fortune in the shoe industry at the turn of the 20th century, Tom Plant focused his attention on the Ossipee Mountains in Moultonborough, New Hampshire. In 1913-1914, Tom and his wife Olive built a unique and stunning country estate, which they called Lucknow. The property spanned 6,300 acres and featured a 16-room Arts and Crafts mansion, stable and six car garage, two gate houses, a greenhouse, a golf course and tennis court, a man-made lake, a boathouse on Lake Winnipesaukee, and miles of carriage and bridle trails. For several years the Plants enjoyed a luxurious lifestyle at Lucknow, with state-of-the-art amenities, beautiful hand-made furnishings, and a large staff to run the estate.  Our included tour provides us access to see the estate and grounds of the Lucknow estate - now known as Castle in the Clouds.

By Patty O for Bay Path- Christmas NY Style w/ Radio City Rockettes on 16 Dec, 2021
This was a fast paced tour of Nashville with lots to see and do over the four days/three nights and allot of walking! Best of Times ensured our time in Nashville was maximized with behind the scenes tour of the Ryman and Opry as well as performances at both in addition to the dinner show with the Oak Ridge Boys. The 'step on' guide, Ed for a tour of Nashville was fantastic as was our bus driver, Michael! We had a delicious dinner buffet at the White Horse Saloon which had a TV show back in the 70's-80's and watched country line dancing as well as listened to live country music. We also had a luncheon on Steamboat Jackson which is a paddle wheel boat and the entertainment was top notch. We toured Studio B and the Country Music Hall of Fame. I probably left something out but those are the highlights. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to experience Nashville as the itinerary was top notch as was the hotel and the meals delicious. Well worth the money.

This show was fantastic. All of the music was great and it brought us back to the time music was fabulous. The performers had great voices and they kept the audience singing along for the entire show. Hope to see them again.
