Thought it would be neat to tour the grounds and take a few pictures. There's a guard shack at the entrance and they will only allow hotel or convention guests to enter. Bummer.

We did the tour and the castle tea combo. The tour was very interesting with lots of details and stories about the castle and the original owners. We also had the castle tea. It was a perfect day to have the tea outside on the old castle balcony. Delightful. The tea itself was lacking. If that had been all it... More

This place has been on my sister's bucket list for a long time. We had a lovely room in the castle itself. One thing I had never seen before was a embroidered black wash cloth for makeup removal! Grounds are beautiful and the complimentary breakfast was wonderful!

We took the tour of the castle... The first owner of this castle is given credit for founding Colorado Springs. The tour does a good job of pointing out the eccentric novelties of that first owner. It is a working bed and breakfast and retreat center (for mostly Christian organizations), so many of the rooms were closed for the tour.... More

What's not to like?:A magical step back in time to the 1910s. Exquisite landscaping, fragrant flowers and shrubs, rippling fountains, with a backdrop of the adjacent Garden of the Gods red rock park, a dozen on-site trails of varying lengths and difficulty, a first-class included breakfast buffet, young wholesome staff, tours of the grounds, high tea. Stay overnight in the... More

My niece got married here and it was beautiful setting outdoors, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, but I wouldn't come here and pay the price to see the castle, it's below what you would expect in those regards.

While visiting the historic Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs, an English Tudor-style structure built in 1903 by General William Jackson Palmer, the founder of Colorado Springs, I couldn't help but recall that another Palmer (not related), Potter Palmer, the founder of the Palmer House in Chicago and the man largely credited with establishing State Street as a shopping mecca,...
