Castle Rock is a small but rapidly growing town in Central Colorado, 28 miles south of Denver and 40 miles north of Colorado Springs. Named for a prominent natural landmark around which the town is built, Castle Rock is the seat of Douglas County and in the heart of the Crowfoot Valley along I-25. Historic downtown Castle Rock, incorporated in 1881, sits at an elevation of 6,202 feet. The high plains stretch to the east of town and the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains rise dramatically to the west.

    The B & B Cafe sounds like something from "Kitchen Nightmares"-- thankfully the other restaurant sounded great. Castle Rock must be a very nice little but growing town.

    I've eaten at the B & B since the Bradley family purchased the restaurant. I've never had a bad meal or bad service. In fact, the food has always been great.

    A very scenic looking part of Colorado! The views from the base of the rock are amazing! My wife and I would love to take a leisurely road trip through the States to enjoy small pleasures like Castle Rock.

    Hi S & K, Colorado is great. I love the prairie dogs, I saw a colony of them in Wyoming.

    Hans and I went through Castle Rock on our way to Colorado Springs. Maybe we should have made a pit stop there. Too bad about the apple pie. Hugs. Lori.

    I can see where it gets its name. Good warnings on the club. Great choice on cafe for the history shame about the service. I love the Prairie Dogs. I love the sound of this place.

    The Buffalo look very impressive, wandering over the plains, gorgeous coloures! Looks like you had a lovely time here visiting your family, shame about the restaurant though. Interesting read (~_~)
