We just had a wonderful weekend at Highlands Castle 12/1/17-12/3/17. The royal bedroom is lovely. The bathroom tub is dreamy. The castle is beautiful and exactly as pictured, the views are breathtaking. The town was peaceful and quiet. We had breakfast at the Bolton Bean as recommended by our hosts and it was so good. Jennifer & Makayla were so friendly and provided the best service, coffee and food you could ask for. John and Yvonne are outstanding hosts, very kind and accommodating. It's a laid back peaceful vibe at the castle. Great for a nice relaxing weekend. What a blessing this lovely couple welcomes people into their home for this unique experience ♡ Ty, kindly, L&D
We had a wonderful time at Highlands Castle. Not only was it beautiful and exactly as pictured, the town was peaceful and quiet. We had breakfast at the Bolton Bean and went back the next day because it was so good. Drove down to Lake George for Sweet Basil dinner, which is our fav. Played tennis down by the beach. John and Yvonne have a peaceful energy that is difficult to put into words--we felt so relaxed all weekend. I will note that we are a same sex couple and were entirely nervous about our reception. I was scared we'd be thrown out--you never know. They were so welcoming and kind, it was a perfect weekend.
Found this gem of a place by a fluke and what a discovery! Absolutely beautiful views with a castle filled with authentic details. The best part-the owner John. You can feel the love he has for his home and family. A sincere man that genuinely welcomes all into his home sharing his love and stories. Unfortunately, I only stayed for 1 night as part of a girls weekend getaway. There was ample space, bedding was comfortable and the views were unparalleled that once we were in Lake George we were not impressed at all by the views there. If you're looking for privacy, comfort, unique views and authenticity-definitely visit Highlands Castle!
