5/1/2018I decided to come to lake George to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé) because we have never been before and I wanted to give her a new experience she would never forget. When I saw the castle and the pictures it was a no brainer. John jumped on the phone with me after I booked and helped me plan exactly where I was going to propose and even connected me with an amazing local photographer who captured pictures of the proposal. John and his wife are two of the most genuine and caring people you could ever meet. They gave us tips on where to go for food and where to find different activities which were incredible recommendations. They also had two German Shepard’s that were extremely friendly and awesome to hang out with!! And the castle itself... something out of a movie. Every last detail was perfectly planned out. The views from the castle are by far the absolute most amazing views of lake George. We even went up to prospect mountain that overlooks the lake and it didn’t even come close to the views from the castle. Best decision I could have made for this and my fiancé said it was literally the perfect weekend. We are DEFINITELY going back and probably bringing some friends along with us. This place is a rare find and something you should definitely experience in your lifetime.
Owner Reply: Rob, Thank you for the nice review and your kind words. The reason we share our home is for wonderful people like you & Gabriella can show up... what could be better than that for us! Be well until we meet again.
2/1/2018Highland Castle is magical. If you want a truly unique and memorable experience, Highland Castle is the place to go! The hosts are two of the most genuinely kind people I have ever met - extremely welcoming and hospitable. The structure of the castle is incredible and the views will leave you speechless. I will definitely be planning another trip there soon!
Owner Reply: Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you & John again!
10/1/2017Had the pleasure of staying at Highlands Castle this weekend and can’t say enough good things. The castle itself is nothing short of magnificent. This was a surprise Birthday trip I had planned and John was instrumental in making everything go off without a hitch. No questions that he’s a “super host” in every sense and a cool guy. While late in the season the weather was fantastic with the foliage peaking. The views or Lake George from this property are truly awe-inspiring. Highly recommended :)
