Autumn is fleeting in the Colorado mountains; but however brief, the season is spectacularly stunning in the Frying Pan Valley where Redstone Castle is located. Sun-soaked daytime hours are ideal for exploring trails and fishing opportunities on the castle grounds.
Events are another fall staple at the Redstone Castle. Every year the mansion hosts Octoberfest, a ticketed event that takes place outdoors in the cobblestone courtyard. With the castle as the backdrop, the atmosphere is authentically Old World. Guests are treated to classic German fare including brats, sauerkraut and of course, a choice of seasonally appropriate beer styles from the local brewery in Glenwood Springs.
Autumn is also an excellent time for relaxation. No vacation to the Colorado mountains would be complete without some time spent immersed in the region’s geothermal waters. Avalanche Ranch is just minutes from the Redstone Castle and provides guests with a quiet and secluded soaking experience.
Visitors to the Redstone Castle need not go far to enjoy Colorado’s fabulous fall colors. Nearby scenic drives include visiting the historic town of Marble. For a longer excursion, try leaf-peeping on McClure and Kebler passes. Alternatively, drive to Paonia and stop for tastings at wineries and fruit stands.
Tap into your German side at the Annual Redstone Castle Oktoberfest! Guests will be able to don their lederhosen and dirndls to enjoy craft beer, traditional cuisine, and live music. Celebrate with traditional fare, yodeling, and much more!
Just five miles from the castle is Avalanche Ranch Hot Springs, which offers mineral-rich, naturally heated waters that will help you melt your stress away. With two pools connected by a waterfall, there’s no better place to unwind after a long day. Allow us to call and assist with scheduling your adventure.
Fall is a magical time in the White River National Forest. Crisp, autumn air welcomes vibrantly colored leaves that put on a dazzlings display of color. Enjoy fall to the fullest by coming and seeing for yourself!
