Welcome to Redstone Castle

On a hillside overlooking expansive grounds next to the sparkling Crystal River, Redstone Castle welcomes visitors to experience an authentic, real-life version of days gone by. Redstone Castle anchors the village of Redstone, resting in the Crystal River Valley still dominated by beautiful, wide-open spaces and undisturbed nature. This 1902 mansion was built to impress, and continues to awe visitors in nine meticulously restored boutique suites, where dignitaries such as Teddy Roosevelt and the Rockefellers once slept.

This suite was the dining and gathering area for the servants and includes an attached butler’s quarters. Today it is a large sunny suite overlooking the Crystal River and castle grounds.

Octagon Suite

Originally built as lodging for bachelor staff, the main room of this suite was built with 8 sides. Five narrow windows provided views of the castle lawn for security while preventing break-ins. A separate bedroom and private bathroom complete this ground-floor suite near the billiard room. The suite sleeps two people in one queen-sized bed in 602 sq ft. There is a television in this suite. There is not a fireplace in this suite.

Study Suite

As the 6th wealthiest man in the country, and as the president of Pueblo’s CF&I, John Osgood and his accountant had a lot of work to do. He may have had a lot of cash on hand also, as a large, walk-in safe was built into this study. This suite features Osgood’s study (sitting room), accountant’s office (bedroom) and a large private bathroom. The original fireplace and an original claw-foot tub are additional features of this 868 sq ft suite on the ground level of the castle. The suite sleeps two people in one king-sized bed. There are two televisions in this suite. The fireplace is decorative.

Lady Bountiful Suite

This room is named for the legendarily generous Alma Osgood, nicknamed “Lady Bountiful” for her propensity for buying books, supplies, and Christmas gifts for the children of Redstone. This sumptuous suite is one of the largest in the castle, with striking original details like the marble hearth and antique bed, vanity, and rug setting off the rich hardwood floors. Windows surround the room, filling the high ceilings with sunlight, and an adjacent sunroom provides the perfect place to sit back with a cup of coffee while drinking in the majesty of Colorado’s mountain landscapes.

Mr. Osgood’s Suite

The centerpiece of the castle, this bedroom belonged to John Cleveland Osgood himself. The bed is framed by a dramatic, intricately carved headboard and footboard, while the decorative brick fireplace is framed by alcoved windows that allow the room to be filled with natural light. Rich red walls and the dark hardwood floor fill the room with a sensation of warmth, and the attached bathroom ensures that you’ll have all the privacy you need.
