While our tour guide was nice,this castle is really a religious conference center. It is not for those interested in a historical house museum. we had Tea which was over priced and mediocre(at best) . The food tasted like it had been bought at Cosco. Supposedly there was a scone included,but having made hundreds of scones, I'm not sure about... More

I wanted to do something very special for my family without being cliche' (i.e. nutcracker) and heard through word of mouth about the Madrigal Banquet at Glen Eyrie. We drove up the night of the banquet and it was snowing. There was a bonfire with singers in elaborate costumes outside and when you walk into the castle you are blown... More

Our stay at this castle was wonderful. The history is amazing and the tour guides Pat and Butch were knowledgeable and fun! The tea was classy and the food was fantastic! Staying in the castle was mysterious and the rooms were quite comfortable. Everyone we met were friendly and accommodating to all of our needs! We were lucky to run... More

I really wanted to share a positive experience on Glen Eyre Castle. I am looking for a location for a class reunion for the summer of 2017. After emailing and calling a couple of times, I am getting no response or call backs. Even after I started working with an event planner, the ball has gotten dropped after the initial... More

The castle is a MUST visit to Colorado Springs!! You can't always linger if they have a conference in session, but I've never been denied a drive through just to show out of town family the incredible work of history and architecture in our own backyard. Staff is super friendly. Grounds are beautiful, lots of wildlife (big horn sheep are... More

We were not sure of our plans, but thought if we were in the area with time we would see this castle. At the gate house we were informed that tours are generally scheduled out for days (in this case we arrived Sunday and they were scheduled to Wednesday) and on this Sunday there was an event (a wedding) so...

I had not heard of Glen Eyrie prior to coming and was so glad that we took the opportunity to visit this castle. It was beautiful and the history was amazing. I would recommend everyone visit if they have time, take time to read about the history, and call ahead to setup time for a tour as you will want... More

August 21-22, 2014 This was another trip with my Mom, this time to the majestic and welcoming castle of Glen Eyrie. We did a lot: we took the tour, enjoyed Queen’s tea, and stayed overnight. The grounds are beautiful. A special soil was railed in during Palmer’s time, allowing the castle’s colorful gardens to flourish, including a rose garden. The... More

This "castle" built by General Palmer before the end of the 19th century, approximates manor houses of the landed gentry in Britain of the same period. It is a venue for events, Madrigal Singers and high teas similar to the high tea served in the most illustrious hotel in Vancouver, B. C. It has been owned and operated by The... More
