South Central Colorado House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 baths sleeps 10+

This cabin sits on the outskirts of Woodland Park - with incredible views of Pikes Peak from every window. Lots of deck for entertaining including a stone outdoor fireplace. Walk out the gate and your on the National Forest trail. Have you ever been to the Rampart Range Reservoir area - 5 minutes out of Woodland Park. Awesome National Forest area - with a large reservoir for fishing and oodles of trails. And then spend a day doing all the tourist attractions - 15 minutes to Pikes Peak Train, Cave of the Winds, Santa's Village, Garden of the Gods, Air Force Academy etc etc.

The cabin itself is nice and bright and sunny - pellet stove, living room - family room, and huge sitting/reading room off of the upstairs bedroom. It even has a loft area for the kids to camp out in.

Enjoy relaxing and taking in the Pikes Peak View: If your goal is just to get away from it all and spend time just relaxing then you will enjoy this home. The views of Pikes Peak can be seen from just about every window, and from the large deck. The deck also includes an outdoor stone fireplace - Enjoy the fire while looking at PIkes Peak as a back drop.

The property sits on a couple acres, and border a National Forest Trail - walk out the gate and enjoy a morning walk.

Rampart Range Recreational Area: Literally 5 minutes down the road you will drive into Rampart Range Recreational area. Thousands of acres of Pikes National Forest and trails galore. Rampart Range Reservoir - do some fishing. Follow Rampart Range Rd all the way to Denver if you like - but 4 wheel drive vehicle would be recommended, but the views you will see will be well worth it! Keep your eyes open you will see the Elk and deer grazing.

Tourist Attractions: You are within 30 minutes of all the major tourist attractions that Colorado Springs and West offer.

Too many to list ... Pkes Peak Hwy or take the train, Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, Airforce Academy, Cheyenne Zoo, Santa's Village........... or head towards the mountains and visit Cripple Creek/Victor - our gaming town, not to mention one of the largest active gold mines. Mining tours available, good restaurants, and the views - well you will have to see them to believe it.

What a fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in this beautiful home. It was perfect for our multi-generational family vacation. There's a first floor bedroom perfect for the seniors, then plenty of upstairs rooms for the young bucks. The view is spectacular and we spent most of our time on the large deck. Fires every night in the large fireplace on the deck with wine and s'mores. Mike, Maggie and Avonlea were very responsive to any and all questions and super easy to work with and provided us with a high chair and pack & play for the baby.

Do be careful with the windows, some open, some don't. But Mike came out promptly and took care of getting one closed. And, we wish there had been recycle. We felt bad throwing away all the stuff we usually recycle. Otherwise, completely perfect vacation. We would definitely stay again.

The house is very nice and has a wonderful view of the mountains. It was clean, well furnished, plenty of towels etc. Fairly clear instructions on how to use everything such as the pellet stoves, TV, and dishwasher. Comfortable beds and sitting areas, lots of room for people to relax. We had a great stay, everyone very much enjoyed the house.

Wonderful views and comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying here. Thank you so much for everything. We like to keep things simple, so being able to enjoy the outdoors together, and come home and relax was perfect. The only challenges we had was wifi, and ran out of toilet paper. But hey, Colorado is a beautiful state, and while on vacation.. Everyone should unplug anyway! :) easy enough to pick up toiletries and food at the Safeway and Walmart nearby. We plan on visiting in the future! Thanks again.

Good memories

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a wonderful time for our family reunion/anniversary. The place was somewhat eclectic - arrangement of rooms and dinning table were somewhat unusual, but it worked out. A couple items were in need of repair with notes to clarify. The view was breathtaking and you felt like you were away from it all, yet a convenient distance to town. Enjoyed our stay and made great memories.

Awesome place for a family get-together!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with this home. It was very spacious and accommodated our large group. We had plenty of areas in which to sleep and to hang out with each other. The view was spectacular! What a sight to see Pike's Peak from the home! The kitchen was very well-stocked overall. We could have used an electric mixer and possibly a blender. I bought a cheese grater and left it since there wasn't one there, but besides those things there were plenty of other wonderful tools to use. We loved the hiking trail on the backside of the property. We enjoyed the snowfall on Thursday. The grandkids had a blast playing in the snow. The communication with the property manager was prompt and the information provided for us was well detailed. The house was very clean when we arrived. We loved the beautiful loop drive from Divide to Cripple Creek and then through Florisant on our way back to Woodland Park. Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs was amazing. There are plenty of videos and cd's at the cabin and they even had some games. The home was decorated for fall with cute knick knacks. We would highly recommend this place to anyone we know and have already raved about it to friends and family!

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

House was well equipped and very well located. Plenty of room for all, with separate areas to get away, or be together. Awesome views, quiet area and huge deck. Our only complaint was the washed out areas on the side of the driveway which caused a couple of vehicles to become stuck, and the clothes dryer did not work. After 3 dry cycles the jeans were still wet and had to be hung up outside. Would definitely go back in a heartbeat tho..

There is also a wonderful outdoor stone fireplace for your use - as long as there are not fire bans in place. Keep the fire low and keep the screen in front of it - so no sparks get away. It is right next to the National Forest - would hate to be the starters of a forest fire.
