About Susan and Ray Wolfe

We had this house built 20 years ago. It has run beautifully on solar and wind with a back-up generator since it was built with never a power outage.

Susan and Ray Wolfe purchased this house in 1994

Why Susan and Ray Wolfe chose Colorado Springs

Spectacular Views, Serenity, Silence in a Pristine Location yet close to town

We are often surrounded by the large elk herd that will bed down for the night within a few feet of the house. We enjoy the birds and the bunnies here also.

Surpassing "off the grid" experience

  • 5 of 5

Unique location. Property and surrounding offer various beauty in different seasons. From pondering how this place come to be to where it can bring us to, it is a gem to those who love ventures. We had a family retreat with our two young adults kiddos during this Christmas holiday. Very festive decoration inside! Wild life viewing in the morning! Star gazing in the dark! A walk or a hike into the woods ... following the rustling sound ... in sight about several minutes later ... the stream of water flowing from a hill away into a grand body of water along a walking trail ... pause, explore further or turn around ... there are no wrong decisions at Miracle Mountain. Kuddos to Ray & Susan for this marvelous spot!

What an amazing location for our get away.

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Ray are the perfect hosts. We felt like old friends as soon as we met. Their home is in an amazing location over looking Pikes Peak. We had an 11 day stay, and did not want to leave. It was total relaxation. Our Great Danes had a ball watching the birds, rabbits, and deer from the deck.
