In 1982, the ideal location presented itself and I began building our home. The castle has evolved over the past 35 years into what it is today. In 2010, my wife Yvo...

Yes, wow! That is this home in one word! So beautiful and so eloquent! But the view over Lake George is WOW! The amazing view of the lake is one that can not be seen anywhere else. Gorgeous! We felt like we were climbing up to the sky and then there it was; a castle in the clouds! This place is so detailed and unique that you could really feel like a Prince or Princess as you move about the home. The owners are wonderful host and really make you feel comfortable. You have to hear the story of how this amazing place came to be from the owner; builder and host, John.

“absolutely amazing! !!”

Adirondack Sunset in a Castle overlooking Lake George!
I recommend Highlands Castle to anyone and everyone who is looking for the perfect setting for a romantic get-a-way! We had a rehearsal dinner at this fabulous location where all of our family were blown away with million dollar views of the Adirondack Mountains while overlooking Lake George! It is a place where you truly feel like Royalty!

My family and I have been vacationing in Lake George for 11 years, it is a very special place for us. We found Highlands Castle through a friend that lives in the area and just had to check it out. The minute we stepped on the property, we fell in love. The view is priceless, the castle is gorgeous, and John and Yvonne are very generous, special people. My family enjoyed every minute of our stay, we are still talking about it, months later. It is a vacation that we will never forget and will always hold it in a special place in our hearts! Thank you John and Yvonne for sharing your beautiful home and your shared love for beautiful Lake George!
