“Great holiday decorations!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This building has such a fascinating history that I had to try it out for a second time. Many new displays have been added since I was there last, AND it was a delight to see it decorated for the Christmas holidays! It is definitely worth a look whenever you are in Manitou Springs!

“Very interesting visit.”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Beautiful old building with fascinating history. Well worth the reasonable admission fee and time. You're able to take a self guided tour and take your time discovering Manitou Springs history. Although we didn't visit the tea room, the wonderful smells coming from there made me wish that we had.

“A must see”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I liked everything about this place! The beauty , the history, the staff. It's a very special place to visit! Don't be surprised if your camera acts goofy and the batteries drain all of the sudden ;-) We had several un explained things that happened to us on the tour. We did a self guided tour which is even nicer, you can go at your own pace. Of all the places I have visited in the Manitou Area, this is by far my favorite. There wasn't one thing i disliked. The review preview keeps asking me to say more but I don't want to spoil it. Do use the bathrooms at the entrance just so you can see how quirky they are, I can not wait to go back for Tea.Make sure you go to the gift store also.

“Great Local History”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Miramont Castle is the museum for the local historical society. The building is impressive, itself, but the real attraction are the scores of photos of Manitou and the Pikes Peak region from 100 years ago.

“Really good for Castle buffs.”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you enjoy visiting castles, this one is worth the trip. It is well cared for and staffed by caring people who love being there to give you a great experience. They also offer High Tea which is especially fun for young ladies and their Moms. Lots of beautiful period antiques to see in their original setting.
