Ravenloft Castle is hidden deep in the woods of Upstate, New York. Construction began during the early years of World War I and ceased in 1924 (three years after the death of the owner). The castle was never completed nor was it ever lived in.
Sitting high on a dark hillside outside of a small town in Upstate New York, The Ravenloft Castle looks like it escaped from the pages of Grimm’s fairy tales. Complete with Gothic windows, turrets, towers, steep parapeted roofs, crumbling walls, and a courtyard overgrown with shrubs and trees The Ravenloft Castle has been a landmark and a source of stories both real and romantic for almost 100 years
One of my favorite activities: Driving/winding down roads off the beaten path and admiring the fall foliage. Preferably with a coffee in hand.
Archaeologists have established human occupation of the rock since at least the Iron Age (2nd century AD), although the nature of the early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle on the rock since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued to be a royal residence until the Union of the Crowns in 1603.
