Glen Eyrie Conference Center, Colorado Springs

(360+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Glen Eyrie is set in a gorgeous location, close to Garden of the Gods. I love to come here just to be in a serene place. They have high tea, and some hiking trails nearby.  more »
  • We heard about this place after taking a guided tour at Garden of the Gods. I would say we went slightly clueless as to what the place is & after being there I still am not entirely sure. Security see...  more »
  • I toured this castle with a group. Interesting decor and very good tour. You can also go for high tea, which I did not do yet. I plan to go back for that.  more »

  • A great quiet spot for a weekend getaway. Close enough to Colorado Springs for shopping or sightseeing, but isolated enough to be refreshing. Try to get General Palmer's Suite in the Castle.
  • Just finished my second retreat in two years there. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. I came to get away and just be still, and this is a great place for that. There are some incredible rock formations and really nice hiking trails. Or you can just sit on a bench and enjoy the serenity and beauty. Sometimes you will get the added bonus of a visitation from the herd of bighorn sheep or perhaps some deer or turkey. If not, you can still enjoy the squirrels and birds.
  • A quiet and rustic place to lodge. Very beautiful with lots of wildlife like big horn sheep that wander through. Right next to Garden of the Gods. Has some beautiful hiking. Good food. Has WiFi but no TV in the rooms.
  • Incredible experience, beautiful grounds. High tea was an amazing experience.
  • Very beautiful area! We helped one of our friends propose to his girlfriend there and she was blown away by the views!
