BEAUTIFUL HOME, FISHING FROM THE DECK OVERLOOKING THE POND

Woodland Park House Rental Photos and Description

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

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).

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.

Keywords: The Ranch is located on 50 acres with Trout Creek running through the property and feeding two trout ponds. The ranch has beautiful views of Pikes Peak. 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 20 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. There are wonderful hiking trails, fishing and over 150 miles of national forest trails through the nearby Pike National Forest (great atv and hiking trails).

We bought the Ranch after my retirement. It's our privilege to make the Ranch available for others to enjoy.

Wendell Howie purchased this house in 1999

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).

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.

Love this town of Woodland Park...Hungry Bear, Grandma's Restaurant, and local shops including Tweeds and Cowbells.
Private pond and easy access to one story house was wonderful. So clean and modern. My husband only caught one fish, but kept trying...our dog, izzy and I were happy to sit on the deck and observe the fishing activity, read, and nap (Izzy).
We saw deer one evening and a bear and her two cubs early one morning. But, it is a great, safe area just off a paved road.

If we would have had company in the other two bedrooms, we would have needed additional towels and glassware.

This is one of the cleanest properties we have ever rented and would definitely consider another visit.b

AWESOME MOUNTAIN RETREAT. FELT AT HOME!!!

What can we say? The property was everything we had hoped for and more! We were immediately at peace and felt safe following a long drive from home. We settled in and took in the breathtaking beauty, went on a hike, did some fishing,.. Close enough to what we wanted to do (unplanned white water rafting and horseback riding) yet away from it all at the end of the day. Actually spent time with family at another VRBO property and consensus was that we wished we could all stay together at the Howie properties. Couldn't wait to get back at the end of the day. Nice cool mornings. Saw plenty of deer, a few foxes, a natural confrontation as a doe protected her fawns from a coyote, caught several fish, took in the views. Home was clean, comfortable. Rita close by in case we needed anything. (THANKS RITA). We were sad to leave...plan to return next year if possible. May come early June to catch faster water on the Arkansas. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We stayed for two nights in June with 4 adults and two dogs. Very comfortable accommodations and close to all the sites in the Pike's Peak Area. The little valley and pond are beautiful and a great get away. So much better than any hotel!!

Although we didn't catch a bunch of fish we definitely had a great time. Great place to just kick back on the porch and watch the wildlife while the grill is cooking some burgers and franks.
Thanks again,
