FAQ’s

Take a step back from the busyness of life with a weekend away designed to enrich, refresh, and re-energize your marriage at Marriage GetAway, a Christian marriage retreat at Glen Eyrie Castle.

Through both group discussions and unstructured time together as a couple, you’ll be encouraged by God’s presence and the grandeur of the setting to unwind and invest in your marriage. Spend time exploring our 700 acre property, relaxing, and making memories you’ll remember for years to come.

Marriage GetAway is uniquely different from other Christian marriage retreats. You’ll be treated like royalty – including 4-course meals, romantic evenings in the Castle, and other fun surprises. Over the course of the weekend,  you’ll have the opportunity to connect and learn from other couples as well as the program hosts. This retreat is intentionally kept small so guests can connect on a deeper level, and is perfect for couples of all ages.

The Glen Eyrie property provides the necessary space away to develop and mature the spiritual legacy you and your spouse will leave behind.

What to expect from Marriage GetAway

  • Learn to focus on your strengths as a couple through group discussions and time alone together.
  •  Improve communication and conflict resolution skills.
  • Discover God’s unique design for your marriage.
  • Prayer and devotional time.
  • Romantic surprises and an optional team-building activity.
  • All inclusive: price includes 3 nights lodging in the Castle, and all meals and retreat materials.

Invest in your marriage and strengthen your relationship on the foundation of Christ. We hope to see you soon at Marriage GetAway!

If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.

Prior to Bold Destiny, Mike spent 18 years in Corporate Sales Management and then 12 years with the Navigators, serving as General Manager of  the Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs. He is passionate about helping men become strong spiritual leaders in their homes and places of influence.

Mike and Becky McNamee


We received incredible wisdom from the retreat leaders. Both I believe gave us words of wisdom, maybe even prophetic words.
2022 Marriage GetAway Attendee
This conference and time with the leaders were an answer to prayer. They gave us hope and tools to help us in our marriage.
2020 Marriage GetAway Attendee
• First of all, a respite. I came in exhausted and stressed out. Uninterrupted time with my husband is precious and fleeting. My heart feels so much fuller.
2022 Marriage GetAway Attendee
We received practical tools to apply on a regular basis. Our marriage will be different after this weekend.
2021 Marriage GetAway Attendee
Many of the examples really hit home and motivated and inspired me to take specific actions to be a better husband and father.
2022 Marriage GetAway Attendee
The retreat leaders were open and sharing their journey helped me tremendously. This helped my wife and I to spend time together and discuss deep issues we had not done before.

FAQ

COVID-19 Policies

We are making every effort to comply with state and El Paso county orders and recommendations.

As a result, we have chosen at Glen Eyrie to not require any guests to wear a facemask.  We also recognize that guests will be resuming travel and group activities with a variety of diverse experiences with COVID-19 and differing comfort levels. These are unique times to navigate.  We encourage guests to take individual measures to help stop the spread of illness, including remaining at home and not participating in group activities if experiencing symptoms of illness, practicing social distancing, hand hygiene, and mask usage as an individual choice if needed.

What Should I Pack?

The weekend is casual except for dinner on Friday night where we will take photos.  Feel free to dress up as much as you like! Our weather can be unpredictable, so pack layers and comfortable walking shoes.
