The Carvers worked to renovate and restore the castle and have operated it as a hotel since 2018. It was the first time in more than 20 years that anyone was able to stay there.

It features nine restored boutique suites, where dignitaries such as Teddy Roosevelt and the Rockefellers once slept. It was also open to the public for guided tours on weekends and was available to host weddings and other private events.

Redstone is located south of Glenwood Springs, east of Aspen and just over three hours from Denver. It’s set up against the Crystal River and is surrounded by majestic red sandstone cliffs. It’s also adjacent to the White River National Forest and to the east and connects to the Maroon Bells Wilderness.
