Don't miss the guided tour of the castle to get insider scoop on the history of General Palmer's private home and his vision for the City he founded. Ahead of his time, many amenities in the castle will surprise you.

This is a hidden place to visit that is just wonderful. The buildings on sight are in great shape and just beautiful furnishings. The outside is very peaceful and just almost garden like wherever you go.

My daughter and I attended a Yule Tea followed by an Accoustinc Eidolon Christmas Concert. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The grounds are breathtaking, the service was wonderful, and the ambiance really something special. Loved every bit of the castle, especially the Great Hall. Kind of like stepping back in time. We plan on going back as often as possible!

This is one or my favorite local places to go anytime. My Oct. trip was with a friend for a Special Event. The event speakers were excellent, comfortable seating, good food which we enjoyed on the lovely patio. The location in amazing: right in Colorado Spring but it feels like another land. The red rock spires and formations are incredible,... More

The castle itself was very beautiful and I felt like our tour was very thorough and detailed. The afternoon tea left much to be desired. I have been to high tea all over the world as well as several places in Colorado. I had high hopes for this place, but sadly it did not measure up. The service was not... More

The tour was interesting and the castle was a fun place to visit. They have a nice religious bookstore and they also have other interesting books and unique items in the gift shop. Stay for high tea. It was a lovely experience.

We made reservations about 2 months ago and they had our name on list at front gate and for high tea. The tour starts with a short video explaining the history thru various owners and what the castle is currently used for. Meetings, retreats, weddings and also as a lodging with many rooms available. The holiday madrigal celebration will be... More

Waitress inattentive and unfriendly at the tea. Maybe too busy. Food pure sugar...unpalatable. Needed more real food on the plate and less junk. I've been to teas before and this was run of the mill. Nothing special. Choice of tea included iced according to menu, but waitress just couldn't seem to fill our request. Iced water plentiful, but no ice... More

I took the tour of Glen Eyrie on a previous visit, and it is well worth the time and money to see the exquisite grounds and hear the story behind the castle. During my most recent visit, I went just for tea with a relative. Tea is served in what used to be the castle's music room and also out... More
