After I have read some reviews maybe we got lucky. This was our first stop on a tour of the springs. When we pulled up to the guard shack a friendly gentleman asked us if we had a reservation for the tour. I told him that I didn't know one was needed. He told us we could drive up and... More

I was really looking foward to visiting this castle as I've visited many of the Coloradan castles that are all awesome. However, the Glenn Eyrie was, by far, the most disappointing. Their staff is unfriendly, unprofessional and rude. They told me the wrong time for my overpriced tea reservation but then lromised me a refund when I showed up late... More

This "Castle" didn't make many of the guidebooks. Our Garmin GPS only had their bookstore. But we were so glad we reserved a tour time. It's a historic English-style mansion on beautiful grounds next to the Garden of the Gods. Huge rock formations there add a unique setting. The tour starts with an informative video in the carriage house. Our... More

I found it fascinating to hear the creative thinking and foresight of Gen. Palmer and how he impacted the Colorado Springs area in its infancy and beyond…..beautiful grounds too!

This is a beautiful building built by General Palmer who build the town of Colorado Springs and the Denver, Rio Grand railroad. Located in the garden of the Gods - a wonderful location. We enjoyed the tour. If In Colorado Springs during December try and get tickets to one of the 4 Christmas Concerts

What a lovely place for tea with friends! Wonderful historic setting and delicious delicacies. The service was excellent. Big Horn Sheep walked stately across the manicured lawn and provided a photo op complete with running fight. We have always wanted to have tea in the castle and were able to get reservations and enjoyed the time spent at Glen Eyrie.

While its interested to see how a very rich person lived at the beginning of the last century this is like many other homes of the era (consider Mark Twain's home in Connecticut). Beautiful, but not much to do other than look unless you are spending the night or participating in a Navigator's program. Probably not for kids. Pretty grounds.... More

The castle is a great place to visit. It's full of history and will give you a glimpse of the founding of Colorado Springs.
