PERFECTION! Where do I begin? Oh yeah itís a castle! If you stay here youíll be staying in a castle. I was having lunch nearby in Saratoga and looking for where I would stay and came across this property overlooking Lake George. By the way, the view is unprecedented. Gorgeous sunrises over the mountains and lake, starry nights, and golden hour before sunset with all of the full peak foliage was wonderful to see from the veranda. My stay was like a fairytale, it really does feel magical and like youíve stepped back in time or to another place. I could sit outside overlooking the lake for hours, itís very calming. Both around the grounds and all throughout the castle interiors youíll see hundreds of perfect little touches. John has crafted a masterpiece and filled it with so many amazing things to see (and explore). Lots of artwork, medieval touches, stained glass accents, and secret passageways and nooks to uncover. When you walk into the great room you will be blown away and when you wake up in the royal suite you really feel like a king (or queen) in your own personal kingdom. Iím so thrilled that I decided to stay here and very happy with my host and experience. They made me feel like I was part of their family and belonged here. I almost didnít leave! I cannot wait to go back, Iíve been telling everyone how cool it was to check this off my bucket list and spend the night in a real castle. This has been the highlight of my trip.
We live in NYC and London and we were looking forward to getting out of town and enjoying the fall foliage somewhere up north. We found Highlands Castle. All the reviews were so positive - so I wasnít worried. The Castle itself is a sight to behold. Beyond beautiful. The view was so spectacular and the Castle Cottage was perfectly situated. John is a welcoming host who has a laid back and friendly demeanor. The story behind his vision and execution of building the castle is truly inspirational. Few people could take on such an undertaking. We felt like we were the only people staying there - but the accommodations were full so donít delay making your reservation or youíll miss out! The town of Bolton Landing is lovely and we really enjoyed the restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Highlands Castle! It was a dream! Definitely plan to come back again soon with friends.
Amazing hosts and breath taking views. Everyone needs to stay here at least once to experience its glory. What a treat! Great location in a small town with lots of great eats and easy off and on freeway access!
John, Yvonne, Bella and Major are absolute sweethearts! The views are breathtaking. Best birthday weekend ever thanks to you all! Canít wait to return for our next trip!
John and Yvonne were great hosts. The dogs were very friendly as well. Beautiful castle, amazing view and great hospitality.
We loved our stay at the Gatehouse! A wonderful location and a place full of character. John was an excellent host, and I would recommend his home to anyone!
Magical place. This is a one of a lifetime experience for those who appreciate nature and architecture. The hosts were incredibly friendly and their dogs are very welcoming.
Suzanne, Yvonne and I (and Bella & Major, too!) hope you'll be back with family & friends for another visit one day. You're the best! Until next time... take care and be well, John & Yvonne
A magical retreat! I can not imagine that a more spectacular view exists. John and Yvonne were gracious hosts. The pride that they take in their venue and the love that they have put into it are easily evident.
John and Yvonne were spectacular hosts. They have a truly unique and beautiful home that they take pride in and are so happy to share with others. We spent the perfect family weekend in the smaller castle. The views to wake up to are magnificent! The castle it self is awesome and like no place we have ever stayed before. Definitely the best kept secret of where to stay in the area. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
