I've never been to Colorado, so I was excited to go, especially being there with my friends. We had our singles' retreat there and it was magnificent. The mountains were beautiful and majestic and the wildlife and rest of His creation was such a delight. The service at the castle was very curteous and the food was great. We didn't stay in a hotel or the castle, instead we stayed at one of the facilities on the property. The castle and the surrounding trees were picturesque. This will definately be my future honeymoon spot to visit in the future.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite on the top floor of the castle. Very beautiful room, wonderful views, and nice seclusion (you are on your own floor of the castle). At night, the castle is beautifully illuminated. My only complaint is that breakfast is served from 8 to 9 am...and if you don't get there right at 8 am, there's not much food and it's fairly cold!!

My husband and I came here for the Marriage getaway conference. We highly reccommend it. We checked in at the Carrage House. The grounds are beautiful. We stayed in the honeymoon suite on the top of the castle. The most stunning views with floor to ceiling (12 ft) windows all the way around the room. This room was very large with a king size bed and night stands on each side. A ceiling fan is in this room. The windows open also. There is an old fashioned heater in this room. The other furnishings are a small desk and chair, sofa, nice chair with an end table. The bathroom is extremely small with a toilet and small shower. A large standing sink with mirror sits in the room. For hanging clothes there is a large Armoir with drawers. A sitting area is located by the fireplace. Fireplaces are only for looking. The fire code prohibits any fires now. There is a very small elevator that goes to the 3'rd floor. Our room was on the 4th, so you must take your luggage up some more stairs. Food at the Glen is wonderful. Breakfast is included in the price of staying here. The marriage getaway had all the meals. They were out of this world! Lots of hiking trails and they are peaceful and breathtaking. Remember this is a castle that is very old. So if you are looking for the modern conveniences this won't be the place. Wildlife comes into the grounds such as rabbits, deer, long horn sheep, wild turkeys, and bear are in the area. Our marriage retreat pampered us with breakfast in bed, carriage ride, picnic lunch, roses in our room, turn down bed with chocolates, sparkling cider one evening, dinners and lunches in the music room. Our the rooms in the castle are different and beautiful in there own way. I reccommend coming for the Marriage getaway. We loved it here and it was hard to leave.

We are so pleased that you had such a wonderful experience at the Marriage Getaway retreat! It would be a pleasure to have you back as our guest any time.
However, due to the destruction of last year’s Waldo Canyon Fire, the danger to hikers at Glen Eyrie is too great to allow the public on our trails. NO PUBLIC HIKING will be permitted on Glen Eyrie property until further notice. We apologize for the inconvenience, and encourage you to check our website for any future policy updates (www.gleneyrie.org/hiking). We hope you’ll still consider coming for a visit and checking out the many other wonderful things that Glen Eyrie has to offer, such as an afternoon tea, a tour of the castle or relaxing in our bookstore/café. We look forward to seeing and serving you!

I have Stayed at Glen Eyrie yearly for 4 years as part of a Conference. Each year the views are better and better. The wild life is spectacular.

The problem that I had is that the King James Dining Room is a very long distance from the outlying cottages. The cottages are not handicap accissible in any way and Glen Eyrie refuses to even attempt to remove even the slightest of barriers. I have taken my own shower stool, grab bar and toilet riser for several years. The cottages were recently remodeled and the same barriers remain.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding the accessibility at Glen Eyrie. We would like to assure you that our guests are our top priority and if they make us aware of their particular needs, we will make every effort to meet those needs. The last thing we want is for our guests to feel uncomfortable here.

While it's true that Pink House, Eagle’s Nest, Cedar Ridge and Glenview are not wheelchair accessible, the bathrooms in Glenview have grab bars. So, if you are able to handle a small amount of stairs, the bathrooms come equipped with safety features.
There is also one room in Big Horn that is completely handicap accessible. The room comes equipped with a shower seat, grab bars, a raised toilet and an outdoor ramp for wheelchair accessibility. Big Horn is a wheelchair accessible building for the upstairs rooms and downstairs meeting room and the oaks lodge is also wheelchair accessible for the upstairs guest rooms and downstairs meeting room. The castle is partially handicap accessible. The elevator in the castle goes all the way to the 3rd floor and 6 of the rooms will accommodate a wheelchair. Some of the castle bathrooms also have grab bars.

Upon request, we will provide guests with shower stools and traction mats for the showers. Also upon request, we have some ability to give guests rides from their lodges to the castle dining room, if necessary. The dining room at the castle has a wheelchair ramp and we also have the availability to put up a ramp for the carriage house dining room, should the need arise. The carriage house bookstore and front desk are wheelchair accessible.

Whatever your need may be, we will make every effort to accommodate that need!

We stayed here for our honeymoon in the honeymoon suite and it was all very nice. It has a rustic feel about it and the view is more than you could ever ask for.

While staying there, we went on several hikes (unguided) and found some VERY nice areas that were great for some pictures and videos.

Definitely worth staying!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the "Glen" as it is affectionately called by the locals. The accomodations were first rate and the employees were warm and hospitable. There are plenty of hiking trails to enjoy, plus the scenery is grand from all vantages. One really feels that he/she has entered an world of serene enchantment steeped in a rich history. And yes, the big horn sheep were roaming through the grounds, much to our delight.

The name Glen Eyrie means "Valley Of The Eagles Nest." Named this by General Palmer and his wife because of the giant eagles nest tucked in a crack between two rocks. The eagles nest can be seen to your right side once you've reached the fork in the road just shortly after you enter onto the grounds of Glen Eyrie.
Glen Eyrie is owned and operated by the Navigators. Their mission is to use Glen Eyrie's facilities as a christian conference and retreat facility. The Navigators utilize Glen Eyrie's grounds to host a variety of conferences annually.
The castle is slightly further up the canyon. On first sight you can not help but think it is breathtaking and spectacular. The castle's rooms are all elegantly furnished with turn of the century antiques. The grandest of all the rooms is the Great Hall with it's large marble Fireplace, dark maple wood ceiling and spectacular wall size windows and beautiful views. This large room is often used for conferences and for weddings.
In the spring and summer Glen Eyrie is bursting with flowers and sunshine. In the fall and winter, snow blankets the grounds and Big Horn Sheep roam freely on the lawns. Glen Eyrie is well worth the visit but call ahead first. The grounds are often closed to the public when large conferences are taking place.
