About Wendell Howie

As a former Dallas banker & business owner we traveled to Colordo every year. We were married in the home and travel much of the time. It's our privilege to make the Ranch available for others to enjoy. Our goal is to share this remarkable natural setting with our guests by providing private, warm and luxurious accommodations and a memorable visit to the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

Wendell Howie purchased this house in 2001

Why Wendell Howie chose Woodland Park

We love the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Springs Region. We purchased the property back in 1999 with my father and brother. In 2001 we had finished our homes. Mine and my brothers homes are approximate approximately 4000 Sq Ft. with my fathers at around 2000 Sq Ft. located right on one of the Trout Ponds. (He fishes from his deck).

What makes this house unique

The Ranch has two beautiful Trout ponds with 'Trout Creek' running thru each. The Pikes Peak National Forest with over 150 miles of trails, is less the 1/2 mile from the Ranch. We are only 5 minutes from the town of Woodland Park and 25 minutes from Colorado Springs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Owners were very accommodating, We went for Thanksgiving, they made sure we had big enough pans. Our travel put us at this destination rather late, so they worked with my son who lives near the area to get our arrival check in taken care of. This is a very beautiful and well cared for home. We had Thanksgiving there with family, ranging in age from 11 to 78. The home is very spacious and relatively close to many sight seeing places. This was our first time booking a vacation home like this, Thank you for sharing your home and making this a pleasant experience.

Four Nights Are Not Enough

  • 5 of 5
Our family (12 in all including 4 kids ages 9 and under) had the privilege to spend four wonderful nights at this beautiful home in Woodland Park. First of all let me say that Wendell and Lillianna are great. We were greeted like old friends and they went out of their way to make sure our stay was everything we hoped for. The house is magnificent. Floor to ceiling windows let you take in the incredible views. The kitchen is a cook’s delight with Viking appliances and it is open to both the great room and the formal dining. The master bedroom is incredible. The other bedrooms are large comfortable rooms with private balconies. Giant televisions and Bose surround sound are in both the great room and the master bedroom with smaller versions in the other rooms. The house is beautifully decorated in Colorado mountain style with many personal items that give the house a home type of feel. The property surrounding the house is made for kids and adults alike. We took walks, fished (caught 10 or 12 nice sized trout) and daily saw various types of wildlife (deer, fox, and muskrat). Pikes Peak, The North Pole amusement park and Dinosaur Museum filled the days with fun. In the evenings the kids actually put down their video games and dragged out some board games while we adults ate, drank, talked and relaxed. All in all it was a wonderful experience that our family will remember for a long time. It is definitely a five star vacation.

Wooded Wonderland

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here for a week and were thrilled with everything about it! The home was so well furnished and spacious that we felt like we were living in luxury the whole time. Wendell and Lili made sure that we had everything we needed to ensure a wonderful stay. The numerous balconies offered stunning mountain views during the day and star filled skies at night. Another favorite was soaking in the jacuzzi tub after hiking days. The location was near main attractions of the area as well. We would love to come back sometime soon as we so enjoyed this home.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was perfect. The photos don't do it justice. The house is big and was perfect for our family reunion. Lots of nearby activities (pikes peak and garden of the gods were favorites) and lots of room to hang out at the end of the day. Owners were helpful and friendly. Would love to come back in the winter.

Air Force Graduate Family

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 12 stayed at this beautiful home for our son's Air Force Academy graduation. The house was exactly as described, clean, well maintained; we felt right at home from the moment we walked in the door. We unfortunately didn't meet the owner as he was out of town but two of his staff members were waiting for us at the house and we are allowed to check-in early as the house wasn't occupied the night before. They gave us a tour of the house and explained everything in detail. The kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms were well stocked. The beds were all very comfortable, very clean and we had plenty of extra blankets. The kitchen/living room area was spacious. We used the grill, conveniently located right outside the kitchen door on the balcony, and gathered wood on the property to make a camp fire and grill marshmallow in one of the many chimneys. We spent a lot of time in the great outdoors fishing and playing baseball with the kids. We saw a lot of wildlife on the property. The house is conveniently located less than 10 minutes drive to Woodland Park. The town has many restaurants and supermarkets. We found a great sushi restaurant called Fusion and a supermarket at the western most past of town. I would highly recommend the property for a family vacation or for an Air Force Academy event. We were fortunate enough to witness a hail/snow storm at the end of May. Being from Florida, it was the icing on the cake. Thank you Liliana and Wendell.

Beautiful home with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! Very impressive home nestled in the trees. My husband and I took our 6 and 14yr old boys with his mom for a quiet retreat for 5 days. We had to change our dates at the last minute because something came up and the owners were very nice and accommodating. When we got there we were impressed the pictures are accurate, lots of attention to detail. Everything was very clean and had everything you would need for an enjoyable getaway. We LOVED the gourmet kitchen and cooked daily, as well as grilling out. The house is very well laid out with plenty of room and quiet areas throughout. Top of the line TVs, surround sound etc. The master bath was amazing! There are several beautiful decks and chimineas that we utilized and enjoyed the beautiful views daily. We took a few hikes through the woods, saw some deer and just enjoyed the quietness in a beautiful, well maintained house. We travel often and rent houses often, this place we would definitely recommend and we will be back. The owners are great, close by and were quick to respond if anything was needed. Thank you Wendall and Lili!

Extended family Christmas

  • 5 of 5
Our family drove to meet here from several different states. Wendell and Lilianna greeted us warmly, and the home is better than pictured. We had everything we could have possibly needed and more. The home was beautifully decorated and spacious (all 12 of us could comfortably be in the family room together), the kitchen was very well equipped, there were plenty of towels and extra blankets, the grocery store was nearby, the large property was fun to explore - especially for the kids, and the views were amazing. Everyone in our family enjoyed our stay, and we'd all love to go back.
