Description of the Woodland Park vacation home rental
Guest Comment: "We had a great time. The house was beautiful as were the surroundings.
Thank you for sharing your home with us. Every thing was very clean
and easy to find. It made our vacation feel like a vacation, who wants to go stay in a stuffy hotel
when you can stay in a home like that. You made the transactions very smooth and easy, no fuss. Who
can complain when you wake up to that view!!"

Located about three miles from Woodland Park, it is convenient to run into town for those last minute needs, shopping, movies or other needs.

This is NOT a party house! We love people to come enjoy a very nicely appointed house, but we also want respect for our property as we live in the home when it is not rented.

" THIS IS A NON_SMOKING HOUSE" Smoking is not allowed on the property or in the house. Deposit will be withheld if smoking is detected.

Also, we have found children under 12 years old to be problematic and since the property is not child-proofed we ask that no children under 12 be in your party. Exceptions on an individual case basis.

This ridgetop log home built in 2002, has beautiful views of Pikes Peak and the alpine setting from every window. The main living area is on the second story. The house sits on a ridge and you feel like you are living amongst the trees. The home is about 9,000 feet, therefore it will feel about 10 degrees cooler than Colorado Springs.

Two redwood decks and a spacious covered patio let you relax under the pine and aspen canopy. The living area and master bedroom have great hardwood flooring with carpeted areas in the game room and the other three bedrooms.

The bedrooms all provide a great retreat. The master has a king bed with a memory foam mattress. Two other bedrooms have queen beds with pillow-top mattresses. The fourth bedroom has an antique quarter bed with a memory foam topper on the mattress.

The electric start gas Moss Rock fireplace allows you to set the mood immediately. A matching log cabin adjacent to the home and patio houses a large Jacuzzi hot tub for relaxation, no matter what the weather.

This is also a great location to sit quietly and watch the wildlife. The variety of birds is amazing. Hummingbirds are abundant, as well as deer, squirrels and chipmunks.
Occasionally you will have a black bear , elk, raccoon or fox visit. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

The country kitchen has a great eat-in island as well as an adjacent dining area.

This home will provide you with a great hub for day trips and local activities with all the comforts of home. Relax on the deck and read, or enjoy a great Jacuzzi spa treatment, and cook your own gourmet meals in the open kitchen.

We loved the home. It has all the amenities one would have in one's own home with the added benefit of a spectacular view of Pike's Peak and surrounding mountains. It is also an easy drive to many attractions, including the Air Force Academy, rafting, golfing etc.
