! pikes peak attractionT Historic Miramont Castle Castle Gardens and Tearoom We invite you to join us www.miramontcastle.org and experience life as it would have been in Victorian times, from the Castle itself where you can view 30 rooms resplendent in authentic Victorian furnishings, to the Queen’s Parlour Tearoom where you can feast on Victorian (and modern day) fare made fresh daily. In the spring and summer colorful blooms greet the visitor to the Victorian gardens adjoining the Castle. The gardens are often the scene of summer weddings and also provide a luxuriant background for artists. A variety of plantings bloom throughout the Colorado growing season. An opportunity to discover culinary taste treats popular in the 1890's awaits the visitor to the Queen's Parlour Tearoom, located in the area of the Castle which was o r i g i n a l l y occupied by the greenhouse and later an open terrace, but now is a glass-enclosed room with a spectacular view, free from the whims of Colorado mountain weather changes. When the Tearoom was in the planning stages, Victorian menus from regional hotels were studied and authentic recipes were collected. From this research of 1890's culinary arts, the Tea Room's original menus were created, and have been further developed over the years. The castle is open year round. Teas are by advance reservation only and can be made by calling (719) 884-4109. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the Castle for a reduced price, when in conjunction with Tea. We are located in Historic Manitou Springs at 9 Capitol Hill Avenue. w Colorado High Altitude Health Tips High altitude can be stressful on the body.
