I got a personal tour by colleagues who had years of history attending conferences in the castle. It was fun walking around and listening to their stories and viewing the decor. I would recommend stopping by if you had time and you were by the garden of the gods.

Most people don't know about this place. Right near Garden of the Gods on the prime real estate that the founder of the city (General Palmer) chose. Amazing craftsmanship. Take the tour, it's worth it if you like old buildings, history and of course, castles.

Wonderful stay and incredible program. The Christmas Madrigal was a full evening bookended with a couple nights in the castle at Glen Eyrie. The staff, food, rooms, and grounds were very inviting and suited our personal interests and preferences very well! Being involved in hospitality ourselves, we enjoyed a break from the action ourselves! The Navigators have done a great... More

In early December we visited Glen Eyrie. It's one of those places you wait to visit even though you live in the city. Glen Eyrie was built by General William Palmer, the founder of the city of Colorado Springs. Palmer was a visionary. This amazing castle housed the Palmer family, wife Queenie and daughters. There is a carriage house which... More

Wow! My husband, daughter and I just went to the Christmas Madrigal last night and it was amazing. Great food, singing, skits and decorations in the Great Hall. Well worth going to at least once if not more in a life time.

If you are looking for a getaway this is the perfect place. It's quiet and serene. Everywhere you look is amazing and the tea room is gorgeous. Right down the road is the Garden of the Gods. The breakfast was amazing and the staff were so friendly and obliging. If your single or have children this place is a fit... More

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!
