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.

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.

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.

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.
