This is a great place to visit for tea, coffee and tour. I have yet to spend the night, but I love walking around the gorgeous grounds, stopping for coffee and the Carriage House. I loved the tour inside --- wished it were a bit longer -- as well as the creation tour. I will be back for the "tea"... More

This is an amazing American style castle that is extremely well maintained. The grounds are gorgeous with a stream running by. The tour is educational with a chance to see most of the room as you learn the history. The tea time is almost 2 hours of tea and snacks. They brew 2 bottomless post of tea of your choice... More

Our office had a lovely lunch during Christmas. The food was beyond delicious and the staff was gracious and very kind. Although we were a large group, everything was perfect from the salad to the dessert. A wonderful afternoon in a lovely setting.

Nestled in the red rocks just south of Garden of the God, the Navigators conference grounds is missed by most tourists. if you have any trouble getting through the gate, just ask to go to the bookstore, and you'll be granted a one hour pass. pictures taken in front of the castle will look like your travel to Europe.

Built for his wife by city founder Generl Palmer, it is a great replication of an English Tudor castle. Lovely grounds and well worth visit. If you are lucky, you might see the Rocky Mountain sheep and probably the eagles nest on the lovely grounds.

Be sure to take the tour as this little known treasure has lots of history. The tea is lovely and the yearly Madrigal in December is a delectable and delightful experience.

They have an afternoon tea that is a blast! We celebrated my daughter's birthday at the tea and it was so fun. The tour of the castle is very educational but shows the castle and the out buildings. I have taken the tour and learn something new every time!

We have been to Glen Eyrie many times for various events, and always enjoyed it. The Madrigal Banquets at Christmas time are a must-do once-in-a-lifetime very special event. Smaller concerts throughout the year are more subdued, but always enjoyable, hosted in an intimate environment conducive to relaxation and enjoyment. Afternoon tea in the music room is always special. Seminars tend... More
