Glen Eyrie Castle, Colorado Springs

4.5
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Colorado Springs
There are few places so rich in both history and spirit as Glen Eyrie! Originally constructed in the late 1800s by Civil War hero and founder of Colorado Springs General William Jackson Palmer, Glen Eyrie was a modern marvel for its day featuring both electrical power (supplied by its own power plant) and some of the first telephones installed in the West.

The Navigators were blessed with the purchase of Glen Eyrie in 1953 and have continued using the peaceful and beautiful grounds as a place of rest and rejuvenation for countless missionaries and honored guests like you.

  • Wonderful place to stay. Grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Rooms are well decorated, clean and comfortable. The rooms in the castle are small by today's standards, but the castle's history takes you back in time. A very special place. A must for anyone visiting CO Springs.
  • Beautiful, scenery was amazing inside and out. Food fantastic. Was there for a seminar, the staff worked really great with our coordinators. They treated us like family.... And there were many of us.... My room was cleaned ever day...
