This Tudor-style castle, built in 1904 by General Palmer, sits on 700 acres along the foothills amidst tall pine trees, beautifully landscaped lawns and stunning rock formations. Primarily used today for Christian camps and conferences, limited daily tours of the castle are still available. Come for afternoon English Cream Tea and a bit of history on the side. Tea is served with scones, seasonal fruit and sweets in a Victorian setting. Dine like royalty in the elegant King James dining room where delicious food is plentiful and served buffet style. Meals are always chef's choice, with menus available one week in advance.
We were originally booked into the castle. For some reason we were moved to the Pink House. The Pink House is so fantastic it is difficult to describe. The antiques were unbelievable. The food was excellent. It was so romantic, so beautiful, so intimate, so wonderful.
The beauty of the grounds was unbelievable. We were there for a fall weekend. The weather was cool and crisp and the gardens were gorgeous. I have never seen its equal.
The next day we hiked two of the trails and saw the eagle's nest before we left. I can't wait to go back. Everyone needs to visit Glen Eyrie.
We go every year with a group of friends (this will be the 5th trip), and we try to plan it for the time when the leaves are changing. It is a beautiful place with a beautiful message. We have not taken our children yet, but we believe it would be a great location for them as well. The trails are nice as well.
The history of the Castle at Glen Eyrie, and the people that share the histroy are great. I believe this would be a great spot for couples, or families wanting to teach their children history and of God's Love!
