The High Tea at the castle was an absolute pleasure and a unique experience. The setting was perfect and cozy. I would absolutely do it again. The Castle Tour was conducted by Cathy and was the right blend of history of the Castle, General Palmer and Colorado Springs. We would love to return to the Castle and book one of... More

Came in for a tour, had a terrific tour guide who lives in the pink house. She had so much to share. We all loved the tour and learned a great deal about the General Palmer family, settling in this area and the building of the house. It was well worth the visit, everyone should come. I'm hoping I can... More

I have been for a wedding, two Christmas programs, and afternoon tea. All were very fun and festive. Beautiful grounds. The food is not the best, but the point of going is less about food and more about the atmosphere. Absolutely lovely.

This place is amazingly beautiful! We stayed in a Castle Premier Room. They had many of the other rooms open to be able to view, which was an added bonus. The staff took really good care of us. We are hoping to take our whole family back for a retreat this summer!

Castle tour was very informative and beautiful. I think it would be better experienced if you were to stay the night there. The grounds were immaculate and the house beautiful. While we were there we saw a deer, an eagle and a rabbit. This would be a nice way to get away from all the stress of the world.

This place is a true gem in Colorado. My organization goes on lots of Retreats, and we have been to most Retreat type places in Colorado. This is by far the best! The food is good, the rooms are clean, the service is friendly--but the surrounding space and the Castle are flat out amazing!!!

This was a welcome view after Garden of the Gods. The castle is beautiful and the scenery leading up to it is serene. If one has time, stay the night in the castle and get the tour for a reasonable price. If not, tell the gaurd at the gate that you're doing a drive through viewing and just check out... More

This place is remarkable. While the furnishings are not original (they were stolen in the 1940's) they are authentic to the period. Who would think of having electricity and a working elevator in a castle built in the late 19th Century? The grounds are huge and beautiful, we have to go back to see the Eagle's Nest they spoke about.... More

It is the most beautiful place on Earth. Magnificent mountains, trees, rock and wild life. Amazing BLUE sky, with sun raises straight from GOD. Beside the Garden of the Gods.
