Set in a spectacular location with 365 degree views of Lebanon. Take time out from the hustle and bustle of your everyday and treat yourself to the serene mountain ambiance.

This beautifully renovated Castle Watchtower has it's own private terrace and BBQ area. The historic Watchtower is rustic, cozy and fully self sufficient with stunning views of Lebanon. A superb mountain getaway surrounded by nature. Why not request a home cooked breakfast from our very own garden (additional fees apply).

The space
Hightower castle is a friendly family business that offers guests a unique experience in a magical setting. The Watchtower itself was the last feature to be built at the castle, and connects to the Castle through a secret underground tunnel. It was designed to be a lookout point to protect the Castle from intruders, and was later used as a hide out for militia groups during the civil war. The tower was built as a typical defense structure complete with sniper windows to allow one to see through, but not be seen. The Watchtower has since been renovated and is now made up of three floors that include a kitchen, an en-suite bedroom, and living room with a traditional fire place. This cozy set up is perfectly suited for an all year round stay.

Guest access
Guests will have full access to the entire venue and the private grounds that make up Hightower Castle. On site there is a BBQ area, a picnic area, a playground and, at different times of the year, access to homegrown fruits and vegetables.

Other things to note
Check in and check out can be made at a time that suits your convenience. Wifi details and other tips will be provided once a booking confirmation has been made. For now, from our family to yours, we wish you a warm, relaxing and welcoming stay at the beautiful Hightower Castle venue.
