Overview

Woodland Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Custom home built in 2009 on 35 fenced and gated acres. Amazing views of the mountains with one of the best Pike's Peak views around.

Total seclusion yet only 1.5 miles to US Hwy 24 on a well maintained County Road. 6.5 miles from Woodland Park, a town of 10,000 which provides several grocery stores and numerous restaurants and services. 30 minutes from Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs with many tourist oriented activities and shopping. Hike the property and additional 25 acres across the road or lounge on one of 2 decks and enjoy the solitude with plenty of visiting wildlife, including the large Elk herd on the adjacent 1200 acre ranch.

Bag a “14 er” and climb Pikes Peak, or hike many of the different trails nearby. Close by there is world class fly fishing, mountain biking, unsurpassed Colorado snow skiing and white water rafting. You can also try your luck gambling at the historic Cripple Creek Mining District, a beautiful 20 mile drive.

This home has many upgrades including hickory cabinets with granite countertops in the kitchen and both baths, stainless steel appliances, tile and wood floors in living room and kitchen, bedrooms with carpeting, in floor heat, 46” plasma flat screen TV with surround sound (including the deck), Wi-Fi, 2 decks, one covered, and much more.

You're certain to have a wonderful and unforgettable Colorado vacation for just the two of you or for the entire family. This property is shared with another vacation rental they reside 750 yards apart and cannot be seen from each other. You can reserve both homes on the property for a larger group.

We do keep the driveway well plowed of snow in the winter, however the driveway does have a few ups and downs, so we do recommend 4 wheel drive in the winter

Great holiday in Divide

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, daughter and I spent 6 days in the cabin in August. It was the highlight of our trip to America this year.

The cabin made a fantastic base from which to explore the local area. It was very clean, extremely comfortable and well equipped.

The cabin offers wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. We all enjoyed watching the wildlife, particularly the humming birds feeding from the feeder located on the porch. During our stay we also saw blue jays, deer, squirrels and two calves.

We particularly liked the “eco-friendliness” of the cabin. The solar power was able to cater for almost all of our energy needs, although the back-up generator did step in to provide additional power if required.

We would definitely recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday home from which to explore the many local attractions.

Tranquility!

This location is fabulous. Just enough off the beaten path to make you feel like you are the only ones around. Kyle and his family were easy to work with and the house had everything you needed and more. We enjoyed the scenery and the people in the area were very pleasant. We will make are way back soon!

A real stay in the mountains with the whole family

  • 5 of 5

When I envisioned staying in a cabin in the mountains, this is what I actually imagined it would be like, and perhaps even better than I saw in my mind's eye. Our family of 7 with kids ranging in age from teenage to toddler all loved being here for most of a week. The views are stunning from the windows and porches, and my husband enjoyed hours on the front porch each morning reading with his coffee and the hummingbirds and starlings buzzing about. It really felt like we were alone in our own mountain forest, and enjoyed the wildflowers coming into bloom as well as the various wildlife we saw....one afternoon we came home to deer laying in the yard by the hottub, and once a hummingbird flew in the door and hung around for an hour before we were able to help him back out the door.

The house itself is impeccable, and I thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the modern kitchen with nice appliances and granite countertops - we had all of the cookware, spices and condiments we needed, and for the first time, I didn't mind having to cook while I was on vacation. The kids were excited to have their own beds and who would have thought that it would be a selling point to sleep on an air mattress? When you are three, everything seems fun, I guess. This was my first trip without a baby, and I was glad not to have to drag along all of the gear that babies need. However, Brad and Laura have things in hand for those that are still traveling with littles - I saw a pack-n-play, nice high chair and even a backpack baby carrier in the closet for use. How nice!

Our location was perfect for what we wanted to do - we were 30 minutes out of Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, Cog Railway, and Colorado Springs. 30 minutes or so away from Cripple Creek, 20 minutes from the Florissant Fossil national Park, and then just 1 hour south from there on a scenic highway to rafting in Canon City. And while it was 95 in Colorado Springs, it was a beautiful 78 at the cabin in the mountains. Perfect. We spent our mornings hiking and seeing the sights and came back to the cabin in the afternoons to enjoy the solitude and cool. Woodland Park, only 6 or 7 minutes away, is a larger town with everything you could need, and Divide is only a minute away with a nice grocery and gas stations. The roads are well-maintained and easy to get around. Perfect location.Brad and Laura were great to work with, fast in replying and available to answer questions by phone or email as needed. Thanks!

Beautiful Cabin in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our vacation this year. The house was beautiful and in a great location for the things that we had planned to do. We really enjoyed the big window facing Pike's Peak and the hot tub was fabulous. We hit a wrong button on the hot tub and had to call Kyle, the Property Manager, and he was wonderful and helped us out. He offered to come that evening and we told him the next morning was fine. He was there the next morning and got it working and then came back and checked on it that afternoon. He was Awesome! The house was very well maintained and very comfortable and contained everything that we needed. We had one day of snow and it was absolutely gorgeous watching it out the large window as we sat in front of the fireplace. This property is very secluded and private. This property is also close to Woodland Park and Divide for restaurants or grocery stores. If you are able to go to the Colorado Wolf and Discovery Center, you need to go. That was a awesome tour and about 3 or 4 miles from the house. One evening, we actually heard the wolves from the house. I would recommend this property and if we are ever in this area again, I would definitely want to stay here!

Fantastic Mountain House

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here on an early anniversary trip and LOVED this house! It was in the perfect location for the many things we wanted to do and see in Colorado. The view out of the large picture windows was amazing. The hot tub was relaxing after a day of river rafting. We appreciated the privacy of the property and although we didn't see any elk, we did see deer and heard some wolves at night! Would recommend this property for anyone wanting to see the beautiful state of Colorado.
