Woodland Park House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Mtn View Retreat 4 BR(2-8) 3 BA Luxury Kitchen Spa/Massage Bed & 3 Acr



New 42' plasma HDTV and HD DVD player and WIFI internet.

Imagine a vacation where the only things you hear are the birds, a gentle breeze in the trees, and nothing but peace.

Our beautiful, 2300 square foot, three-story Woodland Park retreat is set in three completely private, tranquil, aged pine and aspen acres of high Colorado mountain woodland.

We have named our home 'Woodland Park Retreat' and are offering it for rental to help us keep it for our future retirement. It has three spacious bedrooms and a huge 21-foot loft bedroom all with terrific comfy, good-quality beds, designer bathroom fixtures and a fabulous cherry wood, fully-fitted designer kitchen with talking fridge,stainless-steel appliances, Corian countertops and center island.

The house is decorated in a soft yellow cream throughout and is bright and airy with enormous windows and plush carpeting, tiled entrance and designer flooring in the kitchen.

The Great Room has a vaulted beamed ceiling with patio door straight out to the spacious redwood, wrap-around deck to view the distant and often snow-capped mountains. Pine trees weave their way through the deck and, in different seasons, you can watch the brilliant blue Stellar Jays and tiny Hummingbirds feed. Or enjoy the Mule Deer as you dine either inside or al fresco on the deck.

Go down to the lower deck and take a relaxing dip in the large, and completely private, six to eight person hot tub. This is especially magical when it is snowing or while star gazing as there is no light pollution here! If it is a winter vacation, snuggle down in front of the fires (on both levels) and sit down to enjoy a good read or a movie from our selection.

We make a promise that you will have a wonderfully peaceful (or busy if you so wish!) vacation in our fully-furnished and well-equipped home with great quality mattresses, plenty of space and lots of conveniences including satellite television, 42' plasma HDTV, DVD, VCR sound system, etc. Every thing you could need has been catered to including a further family area for lounging, games (a variety of board games provided together with table and chairs). New Migun FAR Infrared Massage Bed to use all you want!

Woodland Park - City Above the Clouds - is only a 10-minute, rural drive away through meadowland, past Pikes Peak forest hiking trails and the nearby golf course. Woodland Park offers many amenities including restaurants, lots of stores and a quaint, old-fashioned main street complete with antique and cowboy clothing stores. It also boasts up-to-the-minute grocery stores, movie rentals, fast food outlets, gift shops, hairdressers, movie theater, etc. Plenty to do and see.

Colorado Springs and 'Old Colorado City' are only a 40-minute drive and historical Manitou Springs is about 30 minutes as is the entrance to Pikes Peak, Cave of The Winds, and The Cliff Dwellings. A must-see is the truly fabulous Garden of The Gods or hike around Florissant's Petrified Forest, also about 40 minutes away. Denver is an hour and a half away as is the Breckenridge ski area. Please contact us for any information you need and we will do our utmost to help and make your stay enjoyable.

A snow plow is on-site and snow-plowing service is provided for deep snow. A four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended in winter.

Amenities include two double-bedrooms and a queen-bedroom with romantic canopy bed, full closets, a loft bedroom with one full-size and two twin beds, full closet. Three designer bathroom facilities with Corian counters. The Great Room has a dining area with large table and chairs, an entertainment center and new microfiber couch and love seat. The laundry room is on the main level. Portable crib and booster seat is available for infant/toddler.

There are books, games and movies in the family room, hot tub, two decks with patio dining furniture and barbecue, heating and electric hot water. The home is on three acres of secluded woodland in the middle of Pikes National Forest.

Additionally, there is a Play House in the private woods. Not strictly a 'tree house' but suitable for children; it has it's own deck and 'furniture' and will sleep 2-4 children. It cannot be seen from the house and is about 200 ft away.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had four generations staying at the vacation home, ranging from age 1 to 89 and all were very comfortable. It was everything indicated and we loved every minute of our stay. Thanks for a great time!

Wonderful vacation home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at the Woodland Retreat the beginning of August. We all had a great time and the rental was as described. The home is in a beautiful setting and is very private. There are many wildlife around and the mountains can be seen through the beautiful pine trees. The house was very well stocked with everything you might need. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of space for everyone with the 3 levels of living space.. The location was perfect for visiting everything around Colorado Springs.This is a very nice vacation home,it is very clean, and the owner has taken great care to make sure everything you might need is available. There is also an excellent owners handbook that tells you all that you need to know about the home and how to use everything in the home. The hot tub was great and perfect after a long day hiking or sight seeing. Cassandra and Susan were great to work with and always prompt with any response when needed.

We all loved our week in Colorado and the Woodland Retreat was a wonderful place to stay. Thanks Cassandra for inviting us into your home.,

Beautiful Home in the Pike Mountains

  • 4 of 5

Our initial impression of the property was rough as the entrance to the driveway had washed out and if we hadn't driven my husband's 4x4 truck, we would be stuck at the entrance and had to walk to the house each day. Fortunately, we were able to drive to the house and enjoyed the lodge type home. There were three bedrooms with a queen/full bed in each and a loft with two twin beds and one full bed. This house would have easily accomodated 10 people sleeping, but with only a couch and a love seat, definitely not enough sitting area for our crew. The home was very clean and the decks looked out to the woods, where we glimpsed both mule deer and even a few black bears two nights in a row. The hottub was wonderful and enjoyed several nights after hiking and horse back riding. Overall, we really enjoyed the home and it's location in the Pike Mountains was exactly what we were looking for on our CO vacation.

Owner's Response: We appreciate feedback and strive to make Woodland Park Retreat the best home away from home possible. Realizing that the driveway was washed out in places, we immediately took action in mid-July to smooth and widen it. As WPR is accessible via a forested dirt road, a four wheel drive vehicle is necessary at times, especially during winter months. Thank you for your review and helpful comments, and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay.

Quiet & Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 so much enjoyed WPR. So quiet and peaceful, spacious, clean and well maintained. Had an easy time booking and the property manager Susan was very nice and helpful. We saw more wildlife here than anywhere we traveled. A doe with her spotted fawn stopped by one morning and several mornings we were visited by four or five mule deer bucks with their velvet antlers. They rested on the east side of the house and one right under the window of the east bedroom. We also saw chipmonks and heard the wolves nearby every evening. It was nearby to all the places we visited, Garden of the Gods, Cog Railway, Cliff Dwellings, Seven Falls and Focus on the Family. We drove to Victor and the Phantom Canyon road all the way to Canon City and the Royal Gorge. The last day we went west to St. Elmo ghost town. Woodland Park Retreat was centrally located and only 8 miles north of Woodland Park, a beautiful little town that has anything you need. The days and nights were cool and such a relief from the heat and humidity of Oklahoma. My family all agreed this was the best vacation ever and would like to return again next year. Thank you so much for making our vacation a wonderful time!

Woodland Park Retreat is near Manitou Lake, eight miles north of Woodland Park 'City Above the Clouds' about 30 minutes drive towards beautiful Pikes Peak Mountain. The drive is easy and beautiful past the famous red rocks of 'Garden of the Gods', through high alpine meadows with scenic mountains all around. Whether you wish to hike, fish, bike, sight see, enjoy tourist activities, visit antique or western stores, go to a Casino in Cripple Creek, the Woodland Park area has it all...from peace and quiet, glorious scenery, fantastic welcoming folk to non stop tourist enjoyment - a week is not enough!

Golf: Just minutes away from the retreat is the beautiful Shining Mountain Golf Course.

Ski: On the slopes of Breckenridge, you’ll hit four peaks’ worth of world-class skiing and snowboarding, not to mention the highest chairlift in North America. Beyond the runs? Signature winter parties, distinctive shopping, an award-winning arts district and locally-made libations await. After all, Breckenridge delivers on diversity. Founded more than 150 years ago by prospectors in search of gold (and they found it), Breckenridge still attracts travelers in search of adventure.
