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

It is absolutely breathtaking to tour the grounds and the castle. We have visited many, many times, and every time is a unique experience. Take the time and visit. You won't be sorry.

Several colleagues and I stayed two nights at Glen Eyrie for a company retreat. We had a great experience. The accommodations were amazing. The ladies of the group stayed in the Pink House and just loved the rooms, decor, and large interior space. There are wild turkeys, deer, and bighorn sheep on the property in case you get tired of...

We have visited this area several times. It was a delight to find this charming Retreat Center owned by the Navigators, right next door to Garden of the Gods. We toured the castle (a 90-minute tour, offered daily at 1PM) and enjoyed the guide's commentary very much. They do offer a Queen's Tea, but unfortunately, we did not have time... More
