Beautiful hidden gem!

Gorgeous grounds, so green! We just drove around. You need to make a reservation for a tour! Maybe next time.

We really enjoyed the Queen's Tea, which included "small bites" but I was stuffed. Afterwards, we checked out the castle and castle grounds. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants a little something out of the ordinary!

A fun place to have a "high tea" for mothers and their daughters. However, their "claim to fame" is their special madrigal old English feast in the Main Hall during December which has a definite Renaissance feel and all of the servers and actors dress up to serve guests an expensive 6-course meal. Patrons frequently dress up as well to... More

Very cool trip back in time to General Palmer's Castle. There is also hiking... super cool in Queens Canyon. We saw wild life too: Rocky Mountain Sheep, wild turkeys, deer, and a fox. Totally worth it!

It was a wonderful, romantic experience even for us old folks with great food, beautiful scenery even on New Year's Day. The food was great, the room was excellent, bed great. Big Horn sheep under our window was a great way to awaken. Like over 100 big horn sheep! We hiked the grounds before we left that day.

We were only there for a short visit - but they have an afternoon tea at 2:30 I'd love to try!! Worth the visit to see this place. Beautiful grounds and spectacular castle. An unexpected place to see here in Colorado Springs.

I didn't like this placing going in. It was supposed to be given to the people of Colorado Springs and now somehow it is privately owned by a religious organization and having been raised in a different religion I know what it's like to be judged. So the idea of this place was all wrong for me, and why do... More

The chance to do an over night stay at this location is a dream come true. If you cannot do that you still need to visit the grounds and view the setting of the castle. It remains a very unique experience. Be sure to do a short hike up the canyon (Queen) and view the water fall.

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
