The Airbnb listing for this unique retreat with the Adirondack Mountains and lakes as a backdrop offers a castle to match your fairy tale. Located in Bolton Landing, New York, Highlands Castle, the larger, grander fairytale venue next door, was featured by 6sqft in 2015 when it was listed for sale for $12.8 million. The entire property is the work of one John Lavender, who built the magical castles a mere 30-some years ago complete with knights, turrets, life-size lion statues and secret passageways to make good on a promise he’d made to his three-year-old son a decade prior that he’d build him a castle. The same #1 dad is offering the mini-castle on the property as an unforgettable mountain-country escape.
Overlooking magnificent Lake George, one of the area’s most beautiful mountain lakes, the guest quarters are located in the property’s smaller fortress. The property is also available for weddings, celebrations and other special events.
Even the entrance is dramatic.
Interiors are cozy, updated and guest-ready, complete with a little office area off the kitchen–because who doesn’t want to check in to work from a fairytale castle? There’s wireless internet and a laptop-friendly workspace, according to the listing.
Amazing mountain lake views are everywhere you look.
There’s as much to take in outdoors as indoors. A common sitting area and an outdoor terrace await for dining and dancing. As at least one commenter points out in his glowing review, it’s a perfect setting to pop the question.
The Castle Cottage sleeps two couples and the owner is just a phone call away.
