My name is John Alexander Lavender II and I am happily married to my beautiful wife Yvonne. Highlands Castle was born from a promise to our son Jason when he was 3 years old that I would build him a castle... a place we could live and create special memories together. I have been working on the castle for over 30 years now. My son was married at Highlands Castle in 2008 to his wife Mary, and they have blessed us with two amazing grandchildren, Ethan John Lavender and Elle Amelia Lavender. Our family decided to make Highlands Castle available to rent (on a private and exclusive basis) so that others may experience a meaningful & joyous occasion, and ultimately create special memories of their own!
Poised on a graceful mountainside overlooking majestic Lake George, a castle awaits you...

My family enjoyed every minute of our stay… See more
