My name is John Alexander Lavender II and I am married to Yvonne, a beautiful woman with a heart of gold.
Highlands Castle was born from a promise to our son Jason when he was 3 years old. I told him that I would build a home for us, a place we would live and create special memories together. I then heard myself saying... "One day Jason, I will build you a castle". 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 so that others may enjoy what we have been so blessed to experience... and ultimately create special memories of their own!
Poised on a graceful mountainside overlooking majestic Lake George, your castle awaits...
