Interior View of Gillette Castle

It looks like a medieval fortress, but a step inside the stone castle reveals the built-in couches, table trackway, and woodcarvings that all point to the creative genius that was William Gillette.  

If you cannot make it to the Castle, or would like a preview, explore the virtual tour of Gillette Castle below.
