There are many different species of wildlife living on and near the ranch, such as deer, elk, bear, fox, geese and ducks.

This Ranch has often been referred to as a little piece of heaven, a paradise and a romantic retreat. It is located 17 miles from Colorado Springs,18 miles from Cripple Creek , 83 miles from the the beautiful ski resort of Breckenridge and Denver is only an hour and a half away.

About Wendell C. Howie

As a former Dallas banker & business owner we traveled to Colordo every year.

Wendell C. Howie purchased this house in 2001

Why Wendell C. Howie chose Woodland Park

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 Trout Creek Ranch is an incredible property with a stream (Trout Creek) running through the middle of the Valley thru two Trout Ponds. We have so enjoyed the property with nearby access to over 150 miles of trails through the National Forest. We are only 5 minutes from the town of Woodland Park and 25 minutes from Colorado Springs.

Great getaway in well-maintained home

  • 5 of 5

My family, including siblings and their kids, stayed here for five nights in early July. The home is set up perfectly for bigger groups - plenty of space for hanging out, cooking, eating and relaxing. The home was very clean and had all the amenities you might need, even small details like shampoo and body wash in each bathroom. Our only request (a big pot for pasta) was handled quickly by the managers.

We enjoyed the billiards table and the kids loved air hockey. A few people also took advantage of the catch-and-release trout fishing. And the Pike's Peak view from the balcony was lovely!

One note, the rooms are really set up for just 1-2 people sharing a bed. We had little kids who are too young for their own rooms, so we did blankets on the floor. It worked out great, we just brought the extra bedding since the house isn't set up for that.

We would definitely rent this home again if we return to the area!

Great for large groups or family get togethers

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this house over Thanksgiving. We had 6 adults and 5 kids, ages 2 - 12. The house provided plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen/living rooms area is nice and open, perfect for hanging out. The downstairs has air hockey, pool and a large TV, which was a hit with the kids (and adults as well). The house is about 10 minutes from Woodland Park with access to groceries, liquor and sights, but it is also secluded enough outside of town to feel private. The house is clean, was furnished well and provided everything we needed for our stay. Wendell and Lilly (the managers) were very kind and helpful. We were there in November, so we did not use the trout pond and cannot comment on that. The driveway to the house is a bit dicey. The house sits on the side of a hill, and the driveway has a very steep incline. It was covered in a few inches of snow when we stayed, but we were able to get up and down fine with four wheel drive or all wheel drive. I'd be concerned though if the driveway was icy. Overall, the house is wonderful and we would recommend it for a family vacation or getaway!

Our family had a great time in the lovely Howie Home. Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived. All promises regarding the home were just as pictured.

Beautiful home - great adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Woodland Park. Close enough to Colorado Springs and surrounding area to take advantage, but remote enough to feel like we were away from it all. The house is beautiful, the trout pond provided relaxing fun (caught a few big trout), and there was space enough for all of us, whether we wanted to be together or alone. The property was clean and exactly as described. Wendell (the owner) responded immediately to our few questions or needs.

We took advantage of Pikes Peak/Manitou Springs, rafting at Royal Gorge (2 hours away), Rockies ball game (2 hours), cheyenne mt zoo (45 mins), horseback riding (15 minutes) and other area attractions. Food shopping and drugstores very convenient to the house - 10 minutes away.

We didn't see much wildlife - only a deer or two and a mama skunk with her seven little skunlets (no problems though).

All in, this was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Thanks very much!

Air Force Graduation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on the ranch. It was further away from the Air Force Academy than expected however, simply peaceful land relaxing. We enjoyed all that the ranch had to offer; large, spacious rooms with incredible views not to mention wildlife sightings. A week of wonderful memories.
