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

There was a very rude older man with bad teeth working at front gate. He told us that he was only letting us go to Carriage house because they need the money. I asked where the eagles nest was,because I wanted to show my kids. He said it doesn't matter,because we were not allowed to look around. It's hard to... More

This place was beautiful and the tour was good. I wasn't sure if the kids were going to enjoy it but they really did. Turned out to be a nice experience a low price.

We live in Colorado Springs and go hiking at Glen Eyrie when we can. There is a reservation system since the property is private but the hiking trails are public. The castle rooms can be reserved as a bed and breakfast...but....access can be limited, and it is an alcohol-free establishment. The property is owned by the Navigators, a Christian-based entity....

On Tuesday, June 24, 2014 we toured the Glen Eyrie Castle and then had the Queen's Tea at 2:30. The castle is set in the same geographic area of Colorado Springs as The Garden of the Gods. This area of Colorado is spectacular. There are other areas in the Denver metro area with these types of rock formations, but no... More

We has an excellent experience and can't say enough. Our stay was just about as nice as we could have expected. Our past visits were just as nice. Plan on visiting many more times.

When making a reservation for our family, the reservation clerk stated that children could not stay in "castle" but could stay in "Big horn". Not knowing what that was, nor that Glen Eyrie had other buildings that were Not part of the castle I agreed and booked the reservation, assuming that we would be in the "Bighorn wing of the... More

We were turned away as it was a little late but we just wanted to drive up to see the castle and just asked if we could. The guard was very abrupt with us and told to come back the next week (no apologies or any sort of empathy). He was not very friendly. This did not leave a very... More

We found a great hike to a waterfall in Colorado Springs, but it was on Glen Eyrie grounds. In order to hike it, you had to get permission from Glen Eyrie. We decided to take the tour of the castle since we were there. It was very interesting, and we still had plenty of time for our hike, which was... More
