John & Yvonne,

We cannot express enough gratitude for your caring & generosity throughout these past couple of days.

The Highlands Castle will forever have the most wonderful memory in our hearts celebrating my 30th birthday!

Your castle has been an absolute dream come true, with the most beautiful backdrops inside and out, to every little detail in the house! It's way cooler than Disney!

How incredible is it to actually stay at the castle with our families and then get to keep a memory mug! We wish you many years to come hosting and we look forward to staying again for an anniversary!

John & Yvonne,
You have been amazing hosts and we appreciate all of your help in creating the fairytale dream. The castle and the decor are magical and I cannot imagine a more beautiful setting. Every single nook and cranny has been exquisitely decorated to transport you across the pond to a Scottish castle, and having visited many, I can tell you - your home is magnificent and truly reminiscent of my ancestor's homeland. You also went above and beyond, thank you for that. Everyone was truly impressed with what you have done here! Thank you for allowing me to play your mother's piano and for letting Paul borrow a dress shirt!. I hope that someday we are able to return to your elegant and stately castle for another visit, but until then, I will just say "Tapadh leat" 'Lang may yer lum reek'.

Dear John & Yvonne,
What a dream come true, snowed in at a castle! You couldn't ask for a more fairytale weekend! Thank you for the opportunity to gift the love of my life such a wonderful dream stay at your castle and home.

Dear John & Yvonne,
Thank you for a wonderful & magical honeymoon getaway! As we approached your castle, I could hardly contain my joy at the sight of your outstanding home! My husband Michael knows my love of fairytales and architecture and surprised me with a stay here at Highlands Castle to celebrate our wedding day (March 16th, 2024)! My heart cannot begin to express just how grateful Micheal & I are for the opportunity to stay in your home! Bless you both,
Michael & Sophia

John & Yvonne,
I had a deep calling to visit this magical and mystical castle you created. We will cherish these past four days forever. We dread going back to New York City but will come back soon to experience the 'Royal Bedroom' and the 'Castle Cottage' after that! It's truly special to have met you both, and I will always value our great conversation. We’ll always be grateful for the hospitality, warmth, and kindness you showed my wife and me.

Hi John,

When reading the comments of all the people who had the opportunity to visit your castle, and above all, the very pleasant impression of the quality of person that you are John, and the great motivation that you still carry within you, telling how you built this beautiful place, and the different anecdotes that you experienced, I only have to confirm the veracity of all this, since you make one immerse themselves in your stories and live them, together with your narration. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your great hospitality. This was, from you, a beautiful 34th wedding anniversary gift. Hoping to see each other again.

Your friends,

John & Yvonne,
Thank you so much for opening your beautiful home to us! You both were so warm and welcoming and we had such a great time. Your property is a hidden gem with the absolute best views of Lake George and the Adirondacks and we could tell so much hard work and love went into everything!
Stay well,

Yvonne & John,
What can we say that has not been written by countless others whose lives you have touched?
The story. The castle. The four of you (shoutout to Bella & Major!).
We leave here feeling like we just spent time with old friends.
As it was meant to be.
Life is good!
