I’d rate this higher if it was donation only. As it was, at $10 per person, it felt like a rip off to us. Takes about 10-20 minutes to walk through, so very overpriced. Perhaps if one gets the tea and makes a day of...More

I must respond to your recent review of Miramont Castle. The Manitou Springs Historical Society owns and operates the 14,000 sq. foot edifice. The only funds we receive are what we are able to generate through admissions, the tearoom and the gift shop. It takes...More

This is really a fun visit. Yes it is haunted but nothing scary at all. The tour is very interesting and the food in the Queen's Parlour is excellent.

Nice little self guided tour through this large house now turned into a museum. Has a hodgepodge of many different subjects. Great view of the mountains from multiple large windows.

The woman at the front desk was very uncomfortable with young children. Children need to be capable of understanding "don't touch." Had a wonderful time at tea, but also not for children until they are old enough to sit fairly still for an hour.

The girls enjoyed the tea and service. The were being quite silly by the time we were finished! The staff was nice and the girls enjoyed being pampered.

I don't even know where to begin. So much history and a knowledge overload. The Castle has been elaborately restored and is still undergoing renovations. Amazing piece of history. The tribute to our firefighters was incredible. Loved tea with my 2 favorite girls as well.

I do not think it would allow pets unless they are therapy or for guide animals.
