After receiving some fairly bad news, my husband wanted to take me away to a tranquil, peaceful and beautiful place to take my mind away from things. He discovered The Highlands Castle in Boulton Landing. We arrived to a very warm and friendly welcome by the owners. A truly wonderful couple.
I was taken aback by the beauty of The Castle. Every detail from top to bottom. I especially loved the Tiffany glass.
Then you take in the view.
There is not a single place in the Castle where the view is simply stunning.
We spent a great deal of our evenings sitting on the terrace taking in the most incredible view of Lake George.
Breakfast was delicious and dinner plans were a breeze. The Sagamore is a good choice but there are many restaurants in Boulton Landing that are both affordable and delicious.
That did the trick. I came back to the City fully charged
The long weekend at The Highlands Castle was both peaceful and truly magical.
I highly recommended it to anyone that needs to get away from the craziness of the cities.
We look forward to our next visit
So I booked this castle for my husbands birthday which was on jan.It snowed and was raining so the roads turned to black ice. However we called John who is the owner to help us as our car got stuck. He himself slipped a couple of times hurt his back but he walked all the down to get us in. He then got his wife Jeep to take us up. I honestly thank him for taking us up to the castle because he made that most adventurous and memorable moments of our life. He is probably is the best. We couldn’t go down in the black ice to have dinner so his wife made us yummy pasta , bread and beer. We couldn’t have asked for something better. There house is absolutely stunning, the views are spectacular. I am def taking my sisters to that place in April. My other sister is traveling from Australia and that place is worth going to. We loved it. Thanks John for making it a great experience for us.
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!
