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 a wonderful place to visit. The grounds are beautiful and the castle is spectacular! They have group tours, morning and afternoon tea, great hiking trials and there is always a great event going on. We have never had a bad experience. You can stay the night in the castle as well. Great getaway spot for you and your spouse!
  • Castle in the middle of Colorado? Who knew! It's actually a very large manor home, but well- worth a visit. Tour guides are well-informed about family and local history as well as the building itself. Very interesting. And if you have time, DEFINITELY stay for the Afternoon Tea (book in advance).
