We had such a good time. I surprised my wife for Valentine's Day. She loved it. John the owner was a great host and friendly. The castle was beautiful with spectacular views. I would definitely recommend and will come back in the summer months to get the full experience!

We had such a beautiful time at your home. Thank you for participating as I asked for Rebecca's hand in marriage in the Great Hall!! It was a moment in our lives that will truly be remembered as extraordinary. Rebecca has been my fairytale since we met, and you supplied the castle!!! This place on earth is truly romantic and is a privilege to anyone who stays. I will enjoy spending the rest of my days telling our story, which includes us all.
God Bless,

You have gifted us with the luxury of staying in your home during such trying times. It is a memory and an appreciation we won't soon forget. The love you put into these castle walls was felt during our stay. This was our first trip together and it was the perfect experience. I believe HE led us here. Thank you for helping us begin our love story.

What a fantastic weekend. This was amazing... a dream come true. We enjoyed our time here so much, the setting cannot be beat! Our group had so much fun dressing up for early Halloween, playing board games, and taking in the spectacular views. Thank you for sharing this beautiful place and your extraordinary hospitality.

We had a splendid stay to celebrate my birthday & our 13th wedding anniversary. The escape from reality to a mountaintop castle of pure serenity will forever be cherished. Taking time to disconnect - looking at each stone/rock perfectly placed by hand & heart that became your home and now a place for so many others to enjoy - just amazing. Thank you John & Yvonne - God bless.

Thank you so much for sharing your castle with us! The views are amazing and the King's Suite was like stepping back in time. What a treat it was to spend our honeymoon here. We will definitely be back!

John A. Lavender II is truly a man of his word. He provided us with the perfect castle for our family. He made sure to take care of every detail. He called us at every opportunity to make sure we were comfortable. I felt he went above and beyond. He and his wife Yvonne made my family feel like part of his own. His home had everything you could desire for whatever you could plan at his Castle. Everyone was blown away at his home and the views were breathtaking. It was everything we pictured and more. It was a place that will forever be in our hearts and minds. We could not have asked for a better experience. From the rooms to all the amenities, it really made us feel like we were in a home away from home. John is what you expect and want from a host and we truly feel like we gained a friend in him. Anyone who wants nothing but the best for themself and their loved ones, this is the place you want to be. You will not regret your decision to book his Castle for an experience of a lifetime. Thank you John and Yvonne for making our stay a memorable one. You have spoiled us in what to expect at any future reservations we make elsewhere. No hotel, motel, or Bed and Breakfast can hold a candle to what Highlands Castle can deliver. My wife and son will love me forever after their stay there. Thanks John for all you did for me and my family. We are truly grateful.

Eddie, Thank you for your kind words, and please know how much we enjoyed meeting your family and loved ones. Everything you expressed reinforces why we decided to share our home with others... to meet wonderful families like yours! Take care of yourself and each other. With Blessings, John & Yvonne
