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 South Central Colorado

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.

Grrrrrrreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Susan and Ray's place. We could sit and watch the clouds/storms go across Pikes Peak all day long. A great show! Thank you so much Susan and Ray. Happy Holidays.

Absolutely Perfect - One of our favorite family vacations yet!

  • 5 of 5

We have two small daughters 4 and 7 and stayed for one week in this lovely home. This place could not have been any more peaceful and perfect for our family. If you need to disconnect from the world and unwind then we highly recommend this home. We did local hikes during the day and had so much fun exploring the property. We enjoyed watching the wild Elk, rabbits, humming birds, and deer in the backyard! We did the Crag hike and also took the Cogg Railway up to Pikes Peak. This home was tucked away from everything but still with great access to Colorado Spring attractions. We will always remember this as one of our most fun and relaxing family vacations. Thanks Susan and Ray!

Car: necessary

Miracle Mountain Retreat is within a mile of Rampart Range Reservoir with 13 miles of walking or biking trails. We are 7 miles to downtown Woodland Park which houses the famous Dinosaur Museum. A little further down the road is the North Pole in Green Mountain Falls. We are 40 minutes to Manitou Springs with the Indian Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds and Cog Railway to Pikes' Peak. The other direction takes you to the Florissant Fossil Beds National Park and Cripple Creek Gambling. A 50 minute drive takes you to Colorado Springs with the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Broadmoor Hotel, Seven Falls, the Air force Academy and more. An hour and a half drive takes you to Denver passing through the Castle Rock outlet stores. Driving south of Colorado Springs is Canon City with the Royal Gorge.

Snow is possible anytime from October on. If there is a heavy snow guests may get "snowed in" until we are able to arrange for the road to be plowed.
