Four castle towers and precious metalwork staircases that’ll be sure to give you a thrill.

This adventure is a unique experience, perfect for the off seasons. Park along the highway on CO-165 in Rye, Colorado, cross the street and walk into the largest one man project in the USA. You’ll enter under the grand front gate and follow the path that leads to the castle.

There you’ll find multiple ways to enter the castle. There will be a large steep staircase to your left on the exterior of the castle. You can also enter on the main level and find multiple spiral staircases that will take you higher. 

The castle showcases four towers, one that is 16 stories high! 

The second level features exquisite stain glass windows and a large open floor plan that’ll leave you feeling magical.

Have fun! Get lost and get ready for a thrill. This castle is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, I guarantee it. 

There’s no waiver or entry fee to explore this beauty!
