CHERISHED FAMILY MEMORIES AT HIGHLANDS CASTLE...
Upon your arrival, Highlands Castle is incomparable to all other places.
That is what sets us apart. You won't find a more peaceful environment to relax and share time with your loved ones and The Great Hall and outside terraces provide the perfect setting. Our private estate is suitable for smaller, more intimate family gatherings during the day, though we’re certain the memories will last a lifetime.

Highlands Castle does not offer goods or services - just the rental of the castle.

HIGHLANDS CASTLE Welcomes You… The Ultimate in First-Class Luxury Rentals!
This luxury estate is available to rent on an exclusive and private basis. You can rent the castle “all to yourself” which includes a large inviting kitchen with a cozy eating area. Upon entering the grand entrance, you will be drawn to the historic 'Romeo & Juliet' stained glass doors welcoming guests into the well-appointed Great Hall with formal dining room, a uniquely decorated area for special entertaining. There is also a comfortable family room, a relaxing sitting room with library, and a convenient downstairs bathroom. Our outside terraces overlook breathtaking views of Lake George with a backdrop of the Adirondack Mountains... a perfect setting for a sunrise breakfast, a memorable lunch watching sailboats on the lake, or a romantic candlelight dinner to complete a perfect day.

SITE VISITS are scheduled BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.
We're here to assist you in any way we can.

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 34 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 Jason 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 is 6 years old and our granddaughter Elle Amelia Lavender is 3. 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 want other people to experience special moments of their own at Highlands Castle, too. Highlands Castle has been a blessing to our family, and hope it will now be a blessing to others.

Why the Owner Chose Bolton Landing, Bolton, NY, USA:
Highlands Castle will provide special memories to last a lifetime. The picturesque quality of the castle itself is only matched by its glorious surroundings.

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!
