During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Tucked away in historic Manitou Springs, Miramont Castle is a stunning Victorian-inspired masterpiece that spans 14,000 square feet and boasts intricate details both inside and out.
Initially built in 1895, the castle was constructed as a private residence for a French-born Catholic priest and has since served as not only a home but as a sanitarium and - most recently - a museum and tea room.
When you take a tour, you will be treated to 40 beautifully decorated rooms as well as stunning gardens and... ghosts?!
That's right, folks: According to Miramont Castle employees and guests, the premise is plagued by the paranormal, with reports of everything from a little girl who spends all of her time in the doll room to the spirit of Fr. Jean Baptist Francolon to other lost souls who roam the castle chapel.
While the thought of ghosts and spirits may sound terrifying, those at Miramont seem to mean well and generally keep to themselves.
