"Sherlock Holmes' Hideaway"

Stage actor William Gillette, known for playing Sherlock Holmes on Broadway for several years, had this unique mansion built atop one of the Seven Sisters hills alongside the Connecticut River in East Haddam. Located southeast of Hartford, the peculiar castle is primarily made of limestone, wood and other utilitarian materials. The interior retains details from the mind of Gillette, such as wooden light-switches, stone columns and medieval doors. Guests can only visit the castle from May to October, but the 115-acre state park is open year-round and it highlights other eclectic areas. While outside, don't forget to visit the railroad station, vegetable cellar and the goldfish pond!. Tour around the park grounds is free, while a tour of the castle is chargeable.
