I have been here too many times to count. It is one of he natural beauties of the area next door to Garden of the Gods. You could spend countless hours meditating, reading, hiking, photographing and just experiencing these two spots. I always take visitors when they come to Colorado and they ALWAYS want to come back for more! You... More

Stayed here two nights during a conference hosted by Summit Ministries and enjoyed their hospitality and the beautiful scenery. Host at Carriage House was helpful. Meals were wonderful...food director is outstanding on health selections on menu. Stayed in one of the "cabins" which was very nice. Enjoyed the meeting room where our sessions were held. Everyone was helpful . Stay... More

The guide was very informative (perhaps too much so as we were late for our tea). There is a 15 min video then you spend about 30 mins outside listening to her tell stories. Would have preferred spending more time looking inside the castle as we missed some of the tour due to having to leave to make our tea.... More

So me and my husband took a tour of this castle, it was absolutely beautiful. Make sure you make reservations for the tour, we made ours several days in advance. This was such a beautiful castle, our guide was very knowledgeable and this is something definitely worth seeing if you will be in the area.

We took our niece to see this and fell in love with the place. We had an awesome tour guide, Phil, who was very knowledgeable. Our nephew is getting married in July and our wedding gift to them will be a one night's stay in a Premier Room. We highly recommend this place.

The castle is nice but the best part about it was the drive in. KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED! There were BigHorn sheep all over the rocks around the castle.

Absolutely worth the visit! We have seen plays here, eaten the Christmas Madrigal dinner several times, and seen interesting exhibits here. My wife and daughters have gone for tea. Every time is like going into a beautiful, secluded setting completely away from everything although it is just off Garden of the Gods road. The castle is a well-maintained beautiful building...

If you get the chance to enjoy tea at the castle, be sure to take it. And then tour the castle...or for the very fortunate, spend the night. The romantic story of how the castle came to be nestled into this beautiful location is worth the price of the tour.

I had to go here for a work thing but I absolutely loved it! It is possible to eat and stay the night but I walked around taking pictures. They do have some trails and roads to walk along. You can also take tours of the castle. This place is about 3 miles from I-20 off of the Garden of... More
