Owner info

About the owner: When my son Jason was 3-years old, I made him a promise... Someday I will build a home where we both can live and share special memories together. Then I added, one day I will build you a castle. It took a few years to find the ideal location and I've enjoyed working on Highlands Castle for over 32 years now. Although many years have passed, the memories remain. My mother & father, both ministers, officiated several family weddings at Highlands Castle. Yvonne & I were married here in 1992. My sister Carol was married here to her husband Ned in 2002. My son was married here to his wife Mary in 2008. My cousin Bill was married to his wife Kandy in 2012. Our son Jason & daughter-in-law Mary have blessed us with two grandchildren. Our grandson Ethan John Lavender recently celebrated his 5th birthday and our granddaughter Elle Amelia Lavender will be 3 years old in November 2015. I hope I'm around to see my grandchildren married at the castle... 30+- years from now! In 2010, our family decided to make the castle available to rent. Ideally, we hope special couples who want to create a memorable experience of their own will ultimately find us. As Highlands Castle has been a blessing in our lives, we hope it may continue to bless others.

Why the Owner Chose Bolton Landing:
Highlands Castle will provide special memories to last a lifetime. The picturesque quality of the castle itself is only matched by its glorious surroundings. With breathtaking panoramic views of beautiful Lake George and the Adirondack Mountains, this is the most memorable, private location you'll ever find.

The Unique Benefits at this Castle:
Highlands Castle offers an exceptional value of a private and exclusive setting... The Great Hall and outside terraces are the perfect setting for a cherished gathering with family and loved ones. Highlands Castle is uniquely different... Upon your arrival, Highlands Castle is incomparable to all other places. That is what sets us apart. If you're looking for a unique, intimate, and meaningful 'experience'… your castle awaits!
