LAKEFRONT MOUNTAIN HOUSE WITH LOVELY INTERIOR, WIFI, BIG DECK

Woodland Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Lakefront Mountain House with Luxury Interior and Wifi on a Private Lake.

Available 12 months a year.

Summer Discount! If you rent 7 days, we give you a $100 discount off your rental.

Your pets are w e l c o m e.

Reasonable Fees! No pet fee. No pet charges. No taxes. Just 1 fee: a flat $75 cleaning fee for each rental.

This is a family vacation home furnished with fine American, English, and French antiques.

We're on the shores of a small mountain lake in the Pike National Forest Area -- 45 minutes from Colorado Springs and 1.5 hours from Denver. This is the 'real Colorado,' not the 'tourist Colorado.'

We like to tell our friends that we're 'kind of in the middle of nowhere' but the spot is actually quite accessible -- 14 miles from stores and restaurants.

Getting to the Mountain House with a passenger car is easy. You do not need 4-wheel drive. Well-maintained roads are available all year round with the last 1.5 miles on an unpaved road.

Full kitchen, washer & drier, Direct TV, Wi-fi.

There are Fire and EMT services close.

The location is private, rural, quiet. Altitude is manageable at 7500 feet. Our neighbors are about 70% full time residents and about 30% vacation home part-timers. They all value their privacy and this quiet, exclusive location.

We're half way between Woodland Park, Colorado and Deckers, Colorado. (The official address places this house in Sedalia, Colorado which is utterly confusing -- the house is not near the city of Sedalia.)

- Hike, bike, relax

- Get cozy around the gas fireplace

- Chill on the stone patio with steps leading into the National Forest

- We have a big hammock that you can place in sun or shade on one of the decks

- Break out our croquet set and set up a course on the hillside; hilarity will occur

- swing on the swing hanging from the tree (providing you are kid-sized)

The area is rich with leisure activities. You have everything you can imagine that people do in the Rocky Mountains (except for downhill skiing, which is 90 minutes away.)

- Hundreds of stores and restaurants within a one hour drive

- The Garden of the Gods

- Ski at Breckinridge

- Gambling at the historic mining town of Cripple Creek

- A Scenic (somewhat obscure) Day Trip that We Love: drive to Mount Princeton Hot Springs near Buena Vista and enjoy a late breakfast at Bongo Billy's in Buena Vista

- World class fishing on the Platte River

- Family-friendly fishing within 8 miles

- Mountain bike trails

- Cross-country skiing

- Climbing

- Mini-golf

- Pikes Peak and the famous cog railway

- Air Force Academy

- Florissant Fossil Beds

- Manitou Springs

The house and the 2 acre lot literally backs up to the National Forest. There is a ridiculous amount of deck space and a large gas grill.

The interior is rustically elegant and comfy. The antiques are, for the most part, from the 1800's and 1900's with some older pieces as well.

The master bedroom is large with a king bed and its own bathroom. The other bedrooms are functional and attractive. Like the rest of the house, they're lovingly but not fussingly furnished in antiques.

1 bedroom w/King, 1 bedroom w/Full, 1 bedroom w/2 twins. There is an under-sized couch in the office that can hypothetically sleep a child.

Kids & pets welcome.

You are advised that there are breakables in the house.

Direct TV signal is excellent. We have a phone. We have broadband internet access with Wi-Fi. Your cell phones will work only now and then in this part of the world.

*Short-term renters (like you) are prohibited from swimming, boating, or fishing on the lake next to the house* Non-negotiable. The rule is strictly enforced. There are, of course, all sorts of recreational activities in the area, including swimming, boating, and fishing.

Standard check-in time is 3:00 & standard checkout time is 11:00. We're happy to accommodate different times if you need them -- just set this up in advance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. Where are you?

Google maps it. Search for Westcreek, Colorado and you'll see that we are in the Pike National Forest area between Deckers and Woodland Park. For a more detailed look, search on Google maps for 14964 N Pine Lake Dr, Sedalia, CO 80135. If you zoom in and choose 'satellite' you can see the lake; we're near the north end of the lake on the eastern shore near the spillway.

2. Where is the nearest store?

Woodland Park has real stores, including a supermarket.

3. Is there a security deposit?

No.

4. Is there a contract?

Yes.

5. Where can we fish?

Manitou Lake in Manitou Lake Park (7 miles away), Cheesman Reservoir aka Cheesman Lake (15 miles away), or, for serious fly fishing, the South Platte River (multiple sites.)

6. Is this house within driving distance of the Bucksnort?

Yes. 38 miles.

7. What fees or taxes are charged?

There's a $75 cleaning fee for each rental.

8. Check in is when? Check out is when? Can I get an early check in or a late checkout?

Our standard check-in time is 3:00 and our standard checkout time is 11:00. We're very happy to accommodate different times if you need them -- just set this up in advance.

9. Dogs ok? Cats ok?

Yes!

10. What's up with the prohibition on lake access? This is an exclusive, private lake in a part of Colorado that has very few bodies of water. The lake is an important part of the aquiver serving Colorado Springs and, as such, has many rules and regulations attendant to it.

11. What's your favorite hike? If you situate yourself well in this area, you can look out over miles of wilderness -- land appearing exactly as it did 500 years ago. We strongly recommend tramping around the lake. You'll see a variety of wildlife, including an abundance of local and migratory birds.

The Hm looked just like the pictures very nice and comfy. The property was clean, and very nice view. I would recommend the home to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle of every day stresses!! We loved that the house was still close enough to town, we went site seeing and ate at the hungry bear in woodland park, the food was great especially breakfast. We plan on doing this again in the future!!

What a wonderful place to spend time! Calm and quiet, a life style to be envied for sure. Lunch on the deck in the shade everyday, with a nice view of the mountains, forest, and lake. We were lucky to have virtually ideal weather when there the last week of August. Town is just a short scenic drive (Woodland Park). Plenty of stores for food and supplies as needed.

We would definitely recommend a getaway here!

We enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July for a week. The house had plenty of room and the king bed was very comfortable and oversized. The split bedroom arrangement was good with other family members sharing the home with us. I loved the antiques comfort of the home.
