What a wonderful view this castle has of Pikes Peak and the mountains. I could see how beautiful it was in its heyday. It is almost like at any second, someone would be coming back into the room, it is so well preserved.
The rooms are light, bright and airy and full of well preserved furniture and articles of the inhabitants. It also has some excellent fire memorabilia and Smokey the Bear items. I really enjoyed the old kitchen with stove, ironing board and cans of old time items that would have been in a kitchen of that day. The top floor has some very beautiful dolls and toys to see.
The castle has an elevator for those with bad knees and wheelchairs, but you can't go to all the floors that way, (but you'll see a lot).
There was also a tea room and I found out that my cousin worked there when she lived in the area. If I would have known that before, I probably would eaten a sandwich or dessert and had tea.
Manitou Springs is a great place to visit and I think you will like this place, I know, I did.
