Create an itinerary including Glen Eyrie Castle
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.

  • Highly recommend the Rock Tour through Glen Eyrie's property. Whether or not you might be interested in geological formations or just looking for a fun way to spend some time outdoors. Our tour guide Linda made the tour awesome! She was incredibly knowledgeable and took family photos on different "stops" along the way. Oh, there is a great coffee shop so you can wake up before heading outside if you want to. The grounds of the castle are really pleasant to stroll through and overall it makes for a great day trip... check the Rock Tour out for sure.
  • Loved this place. I only stayed one night and was there about 12 hours but it was great. I wish I could've stayed longer to explore the trails on the property. The location is great if you're wanting to do Pike's Peak, Garden of the Gods, or Cave of the Winds. Check in was super easy. Since we were getting in late and the front desk would be closed, we checked in at the gate and received all the information we would need for our stay. The castle is very well kept. My room was a little small and had a bit of peeling wallpaper but was otherwise immaculate. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. Will definitely stay here again.
