Convenient location within walking distance of local restaurants and also a city park (dog walking.) House was very comfortable and clean. The entertainment system included many options including a DVD library and DISH TV. My only complaint was our bed was dated and not very comfortable. However, the owner was responsive and solved some other minor issues very fast. The Hot Tub was easy to use and in excellent condition. The large fenced yard was great for my dogs (2 German Shepherd Dogs). I would recommend this house to those considering a VRBO rental in Woodland Park.
Ken It was a pleasure to host your group. You were wonderful guests and we would welcome you back again anytime. I feel bad about that bath faucet issue and hope you enjoyed the additional free night stay. Best to you and your friends. Jim
Great and charming cabin that was what we were looking for! The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There were a lot of rules that came with the house. Some were available to read via email or online ahead of time, some we didn’t know until arriving to the house. Personally, I would have preferred just knowing all of the rules ahead of time, but I am glad Jim wanted to make sure we were comfortable with everything. One of our favorite rooms was the sun room – it was nice and cozy hanging out there and just relaxing. The hot tub was nice but it felt a bit over-chemically. The enclosed yard was perfect for our dogs to run around with us and play. We all had a great time, thank you!
It was a true pleasure to host Rebecca's family and they were wonderful guests. We love it when guests can make our home their home while also enjoying the area attractions. We welcome them back anytime. I do a 15-20 minute orientation after guests arrive to point out some specific items that are difficult to send in an email (outdoor smoking area, HVAC, how to access free Netflix, Hot Tub procedures, how NOT to attract bears, ;). I communicate to all of our guests that I treat people the way I would want to be treated including communication. It is very important to us that guests have a great experience which includes avoiding any problems. Jim
Our extended family of seven rented home for our first Christmas 🎄in Colorado. We are from flat Texas gulf coast and were a little worried about driving in snow. Colorado keeps its roads in good driving shape, and Jim made sure the driveway was clear. The house is cozy and has everything one needs. They even have extra games and TV connections in all bedrooms. Our teenagers were entertained! Great location in town as well! We will definitely stay there again!!
Wendy - it was a pure joy to host your beautiful family for Christmas. Our family has created many memories in this home and we are thrilled that your family was also able to create your own memories. We hope you will come back and stay with us again. Jim
We have stayed here several times and we've never been disappointed in anything. It's close enough to tourist activities but inviting enough to just stay home and relax. It is well stocked and has anything you could need. I would not hesitate in recommending this to other familes.
It's ALWAYS a pleasure to host your family including Dani. We love how you are continuing to create memories in our home and the woodland park area just as our family has. We look forward to your next stay.
We had a great week at Woodland Park Haven. It had everything we needed and the location was great for hitting all the sights. Our favorite was relaxing in the hot tub with views of Pikes Peak each night. Also Jim was very accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this spot.
Thanks Jennifer, You were wonderful guests. We hope you were able to create some memories and we would love to have you come back again. Best to you! Jim
We have rented many houses in Woodland Park, and this was by far the very very best. It was close to everything, the kitchen was well equipped and this made cooking very easy. And the hot tub was just a relaxing bonus. We had between 3 to 5 adults at different times throughout our week's stay. We were at a seminar and we all enjoyed the space and privacy. There is a large lovely dining area & a large dining room table, so we were able to have our friends over for dinner and be comfortable. We greatly enjoyed the room to entertain as this is a big part of our week in Woodland Park. We are in Woodland Park often & will definitely book here on our return visits.
Thanks Sharon. You and your friends were wonderful guests and we are humbled to host you. We love it when our guests can enjoy the best of Woodland Park while also relaxing in our home. I most certainly hope you will allow us to host you again. Sincerely, Jim
I rented this property for a bachelor party weekend with my groomsmen. Colorado was a good midway point for us being spread across the country as we were. I'm so glad we went with this home over a hotel. It was nice waking up in our own beds, being able to have breakfast at a table and take showers more than one at a time. The home is very well kept, and the amenities they provide are top notch. It was a pleasant surprise to be able to watch college football from the house when we got back from hiking. The area is a great sight to see, and there are several stores that are honestly within walking distance. Not much else to say other than it's great place, at a great value, that is maintained very nicely. I'd love to visit again.
Jesse Your group was fantastic! Because we typically host families, your group was a pleasant surprise. We LOVE it when guests can enjoy the home as well as the wonderful area attractions. It know this weekend was an important one for your story and we are honored that you let us share in it. Best of luck to you and I hope you will bring your new wife back with you sometime. Jim
We had a GREAT time during our five night stay at this Woodland Park home. Everything was just right. So comfortable and clean throughout. Sill can't figure out how six adults can take showers, one after the other, and NOT run out of hot water. That doesn't happen at home! The hot tub was especially fun and such a welcome relief when we used it on the two COLD nights after long days of hiking. We cooked most of our meals in the very well-equipped kitchen, and to be able to grill on the outside gas grill was a HUGE bonud. Our "check-in chat" on the phone with Jim was perfect. He'd anticipated EVERYTHING, right down to the best area hikes and places to go out for breakfast. Can't think of a way we'd improve anything. We'd definitely consider staying here again for our next Colorado visit.
It was a true pleasure to host Bob, Marti and their beautiful family. We LOVE it when families can gather from multiple locations and create memories at our home just as our family has done over the years. I hope you all come back again! Jim
My wife and I absolutely loved our stay at Woodland Park Haven. We stayed for 5 nights, the house had anything you could need while away from home. Cable tv in every room, access to Hulu and Netflix in living room and everything was very nice and clean. Loved the view of Pikes Peak, location seemed to be centralized around a lot of great activities. Jim, the host, made sure we had everything we needed while we were there. We will definitely be staying again when we go back to Colorado!
Thanks Mike. I really enjoyed working with you and I am thrilled that your family had a great experience. Admittedly, it brings back great memories of my own family experience to observe you enjoying both this home and the area attractions. I most certainly hope you will come back again. Jim
In looking for somewhere to stay for an out of town wedding I came upon this cabin. The owners were spectacular helping me get it arranged and answering questions. They even helped me fix the dates when it turned out I booked the wrong weekend. They kept in touch for months leading up to the weekend and the week before provided all info I needed. When I checked in, the place was immaculate. They had everything one could need, the kitchen was stocked with all the appliances and dishes one could need, and they even had some coffee on hand for us. It was in a great location to visit Woodland Park and Pikes Peak, and just a short drive to Garden of the Gods. We never made it into the hot tub but I imagine that it would have been perfect on one of the star lit nights in the fall to sit out there!
We loved hosting Nicole and her friends for their wedding weekend. It's means a great deal to us to be more than just a place to sleep. We want our guests to create long-lasting memories. Guests like Nicole are EXACTLY the kind of guests we hope to host. We hope you come back again Nicole! Jim
Very comfortable cabin, super clean and well-maintained. Jim was very thorough in his instructions. Convenient to everything in Woodland Park and a short drive from historic Manitou Springs and Colorado Springs. The hot tub is awesome after a day of hiking or sightseeing but there are lots of neighbors so bring a swimsuit! So glad Jim has found a way to keep this nice home in the family!
Patty Thanks for trusting us for your wedding anniversary. You were fantastic guests and we would LOVE to have you back again. I am so very glad you were able to enjoy the home as well as the area attractions. My mom would have been very happy that you shared this special moment with our family. And yes, we do ask that everyone who wants to use the hot tub wear a swim suit :) Jim Just to clearly explain for prospective renters reading this review: we are not in the city limits but we are on the outskirts of the small mountain town Woodland Park. We have a large lot completely fenced in (privacy fence on two sides and chain link fence on two sides) with the house located in the middle of the lot. One neighbor is 50-yards away, the other 3 neighbors are anywhere between 75-125 yards away.
This is the 3rd time we've stayed at Woodland Park Haven and once again it was wonderful. It's a great location and we really enjoy the house. It's so clean and has everything you could need. We love it here and will definitely be back.
Janice And we LOVE hosting you. Returning guests like your family are why we opened our home. We look forward to your next stay and helping you continue to create your own memories at Woodland Park Haven. Jim
This was an ideal place to stay for our end of summer vacation. We wanted to do as much stuff (Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, The Broadmoor, Whitewater Rafting, Royal Gorge, etc....) and the cabin was within reasonable driving distance to everything. I looked forward every morning to eating my breakfast while looking out at Pikes Peak and then taking a walk with my wife while our teenagers slept in. It was an awesome mix of doing touristy and relaxing things. For the beer lovers, there are plenty of breweries to sample and my family was game because most of them serve great food. This was our third time vacationing (Breckenridge, Estes Park, and Woodland Park) in Colorado and by far our best experience. Southern Colorado is much different than the North and now preferred by our family. I would totally recommend staying as Woodland Park Haven and have even recommended it to my Brother and his family.
This cabin is a true gem. It is quiet and in the perfect location, just a short drive up from Colorado Springs and at the base of Pikes Peak. The view is breathtaking! There was plenty of room for my family of 4 plus the grandparents, who could stay in the lower level bedroom very comfortably. The home was extremely clean and well maintained, and it came stocked with basic supplies that we just replenished as needed from the Safeway grocery store which is only 1 minute away. Woodland Park, although a small mountain town, had plenty of local restaurants to choose from, which we enjoyed. The owners are lovely to work with and after two trips, I already plan on coming back again next year. Most of all, the kids loved the giant backyard, and plenty of games are supplied at the cabin. Thank you, Jim. Your home is wonderful!
Anne It has been SO great to host your family again and a true job. I love it that your family is counting to create memories at our home just as our family has. We are excited to have you back next year. Jim
I would recommend Woodland Park Haven to anyone who wants to stay in the mountains near Colorado Springs. You are snuggled in a mountain setting near Pikes Peak with countless attractions within close driving. On the first night in the cabin you will be in contact with the owner, Jim. He will immediately make you feel at home. It is such a pleasure dealing directly with him. My wife and I have stayed at his cabin with our grandchildren for the last two summers and have been so pleased we already have booked for next year. It has a full kitchen, laundry room, large dining room, 2 1/2 baths and a hot tub. Whether it be a busy day seeing the sites or just a lazy day setting in the outdoor hot tub, you can't go wrong.
Glen It is a pure joy to once again host your beautiful family as a returning guest. And we are excited that you have already made plans for next year! Families creating family memories is why we opened our home to others. See you next summer! Jim
When my family and I were looking for a rental in the Colorado Springs area, we came upon Woodland Park Haven. What a FIND! Within a reasonable drive to many local tourist attractions (ex. Pikes peak, Cave of the winds, Garden of the Gods, etc) yet rural and quiet enough to just sit back and relax! The owner Jim made this an easily accessible and great experience. He was extremely responsive and helped to talk us through the initial arrival with great recommendations and instructions. The house itself was extremely accommodating and clean when we arrived. Beautiful views of the mountains and wildlife. Beds were very comfortable and the full kitchen was easy to use and had everything we needed to cook our own meals. The Gas grill and Hot Tub were also great amenities. I would like to thank the owner Jim and his family for allowing my family and I access to a great home for use on our relaxing vacation. Will definitely be renting here again!
Trent - Your family was so much fun to host! EXACTLY the experience we hoped to have when we decided to open our home up to other families. We love it when guests enjoy both the home and the amazing attractions in the area. You are most certainly welcome back any time. Best, Jim
We had a wonderful time at this property! Jim is an excellent host and provides a wonderful place to vacation! I would definitely come back! We had a total of 6 adults, a teenager and a baby. We loved it! Near every tourist attraction and a grocery store right down the street. The only thing we didn't enjoy too much were the mattresses, but that doesn't bring my rating down. Clean, comfortable, beautiful view and a hot tub! Thanks so much for such a great place to stay!
Kelsey and Ken Your family was so much fun to host! Your use of the home and area reminds me of the many years my family vacationed in Woodland Park. Thanks for the feedback on the mattress. We trial-ran a new mattress that week and I was a little worried about it. I will get it replaced right away. We would LOVE to host your family again. Best, Jim
We wanted to try to rent a house for our vacation. We had stayed in hotels every other time so this was new to us. We were NOT disappointed. Woodland Park Haven has just the right amount or rural mixed in with being very close to shopping and attractions. The house is impeccable, very well taken care of, comfy beds, a full kitchen, TV's everywhere, and a wonderful view of Pikes Peak and the surrounding mountains. Jim made the whole process perfect and was so accommodating and helpful to us. We will definitely visit here again. I want to thank Jim and his family for opening his families home to allow people to experience it. It was a great base of operations for activities in both Southern Colorado, Colorado Springs, and Denver. Thank you Jim!!!
David Your family were the PERFECT kind of guests that we hope to host at our home. Our family has created a treasure chest of wonderful memories staying in this home and enjoying the beauty of the Co Springs area. We also thank you for leaving the house in excellent condition. We very much hope you come back again! Jim
We truly enjoyed our stay at Woodland Park Haven. The amenities were complete, more than expected. Everything we needed was provided for our stay. We could relax at the end of a day of sight-seeing and either cook a meal or go out to one of many nearby restaurants. The area has so much to offer and places to explore. We were surprised by a curious deer coming right up to our car. The views are breathtaking as well. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this home away from home.
Glenda - we really enjoyed hosting your beautiful family. We are thrilled that you had such a good time. We would love to host you on your next trip. Jim
The house was very well equipped and Jim was a pleasure to work with. We stayed with three teenagers and they had more than enough space. We very much enjoyed the hot tub!
Liz - we very much enjoyed hosting your family. It's rewarding for us when families can enjoy the home and the area just as your family did. We hope you can come back again. Jim
Through out my 5 days at woodland park haven, I came to the conclusion that I made the perfect decision to rent here. It's in a perfect location, it has everything you would have in your own home. It's very comfortable, roomy, and clean. Jim was extremely accommodating to our needs and made sure we were as comfortable as possible. The hot room is amazing just FYI. When I come back to colorado, I will be renting woodland park haven out again. Thanks Jim!!
This was such a great place for us to stay. The owner was very accommodating and helpful through the entire booking and check out process, and wanted to ensure our stay was the best possible. We felt right at home! Thank you.
David Your group were fantastic guests. We have been blessed to have some wonderful guests like you and we would welcome you back anytime. Jim
Sometimes when you think of mountain property, you think about being away from it all. this is not that type of property, but you still have a fair amount of privacy. We stayed here three years ago before apartment buildings went up by the bike trail, but it still seems private. this is a mountain town and everyone pretty much respects your privacy. Woodland Haven has three bedrooms, but one is in a loft overlooking the living room. Not a big deal for us. The kitchen is a galley kitchen, so two people max cooking but everything is handy. We stayed here three years ago and rebooked this year because it is close to everything and there is a hot tub, 2 1/2 bathrooms, and pets are allowed. The landlord is friendly and works with you. My only semi complaint is that the beds need to be upgraded. A bigger queen would be nice or at least a newer one. I have arthritis and rotator cup issues and the bed made it hard to sleep. Also, for older people get the foam seats on the couches re-foamed. there are companies that will put new foam in seats. I have done this at home and it makes all the difference and a lot cheaper than buying new furniture. Still for the price and the ease of renting and the nice landlord, you can't do better than this home. You can still have great mountain vies from the deck and the convenience of a Safe way three blocks away. Don't pass it up. this is a cabin, not a condo, but it feels like home.
Sue - it was great to have you back and we would love to host your beautiful family again. Thanks for the feedback.
This was by far the best place we've stay in all the years we've renting in the Woodland Park area. The size and room layout was just perfect. It was fully stocked and by far the cleanest we've encountered. We liked the big yard for when all our kids are together with all their dogs. Close to everything but there was no doubt you were in the mountains. We will be back!!!
M You're family is EXACTLY what we hoped for when we decided to open of our home to guests. Trust me when I say that w received as much joy hosting you as you had staying with us. We very much look forward to your next stay. Jim
Great area that is beautiful,relaxing,and quiet. Close to everything we wanted to see and do.This home sits on very large acreage with plenty of trees and an excellent view of the mountain from the fantastic sun room.I would highly recommend this property. Thanks Jim, looking forward to the next stay.Tom
Tom Your family were wonderful guests and I really enjoyed working with you. It's so rewarding for us when families take advantage of the home in a similar way as our family has. We would love to have your family back any time. Jim
Great location for access to Colorado Springs as well as Mueller State Park. Woodland Park is a cute little town as well. This house provided plenty of kitchen and bathroom supplies! The hot tub felt wonderful after a long hike. While the house has a spacious yard that would be great for kids, the house is surrounded by other houses and apartments. Wasn't a problem for us but you might want to be aware of the lack of privacy. Finanlly, while everything functioned well, this is definitely a cabin - and hasn't been updated in a while. Worked fine for us but don't expect 5-star decor and amenities.
Jennifer Your "mom's getaway" group was fantastic and left our home in wonderful condition. Thank you! I am glad that it worked well for you considering we normally host families and I hope you enjoyed the little care package that we left for you. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to host you. Our family does our very best to provide a clean / furnished home and high quality experience. Jim
Wonderful property. Clean, convenient and very homey. There were five of us staying in the cabin and we had plenty of room . We arrived on Tuesday for the wedding of our Son on Saturday. Everything was in order, cleaned and fresh. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice cabin to spend their vacation. The hot tub was fabulous. The night sky was amazing and the view of Pikes Peak was wonderful. Everything was so convenient downtown. We already loved Woodland Park, and this stay only made it twice as good. Thanks Jim for sharing your family cabin with us.
Linda It was a privilege to host you. We have been so blessed to have great guests like your group. We hope you can come back and enjoy the Woodland Park area again. We would love to host you. Jim
My family and I booked this trip for the Air Force Academy's parent's weekend and as soon as we got there our cadet wanted to book it again for future parent's weekends. It was far enough away from the Academy to feel like a getaway, yet close enough to travel back and forth for weekend events. We loved the cabin feel, the space of the yard for the brothers to play Frisbee and other yard games (provided), the cozy, comfortable atmosphere and ample space to enjoy a family cookout. At the end of the day we thoroughly enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and gazing at the stars. Beautiful views of Pikes Peak and wildlife made this a "must return" spot for us. Excellent for vacationers young and old. The house was in immaculate condition and we appreciated the amount of clean linens provided as well as the staples provided in the kitchen (coffee!). Thank you, Jim, for opening your home to us! We look forward to coming back!
Anne It was a true privilege to host your family. I love it when other families can enjoy the home and area just as our family has so many times. We excited to host you again next year. You are just the kind of guests we hope to host. Jim
First of all, it was an honor to stay in your lovely home. Everything was perfect - the view, the peace and quiet, and the beautiful doe and her babies! The doe paid us a visit in the backyard and side yard several times before we left. We had seen them all from a distance but one afternoon she took a rest up against the rear fence. What a beautiful sight. The cabin was wonderful - kitchen was very well equipped and efficient. The beds were extremely comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed using the spa too. We would rate the entire experience as a "5" hands down!!! We can't wait to return to Woodland Park Haven in the future!!! Thank you for your very warm hospitality.
It was so fun to host this group. Your trip reminded me why we decided to open up our home for others to share. We would love to have you back again. Jim
We enjoyed our stay in this cabin, with plenty of room for six adults. The entire place was very clean and well cared-for, with a well-stocked kitchen, nice towels, linens, etc.. Excellent high speed WiFi. We had mule deer in the yard several times - a big buck, a doe, and two spotted fawns. The cabin is located within walking distance of the main part of Woodland Park, and only a short drive from Pikes Peak, Florissant, Manitou, and other nice places. There is a large yard but the property is surrounded on all sides by other dwellings and a large apartment complex. It's not out in the woods, but still private enough. Nice deck and sitting areas, plus sun porch.
Mike - your family were fantastic guests - just the kind we hope to host. It thrills us when guests are able to take full advantage of our property and the activities of the area as your family did. We would love to host your family again any time. Jim
My wife, four grandchildren, and myself instantly felt at home in the cabin. Our grandson fell in love with the loft bedroom overlooking the living room. We enjoyed dealing directly with the owner of the cabin, Jim. He was very gracious. The cabin is minutes from dozens of attractions. Highlights of our vacation was rafting, obstacle course, and horseback riding. There is a near by grocery stores and department store for anything you forgot.
Glen - it was so fun for us to see your family having such a good time. My mom shared special memories with her grandchildren in this home before she passed. We would love to have you back again someday. Jim
Wow is the only word to describe our stay at this home and beautiful Woodland Park. Great location and perfect views and home... thank you for sharing your home with us.
You guys were awesome and fantastic guests. We LOVE to host families like yours. I hope you can come back again. Jim
This was a great location.... the home had it all. From any and all kitchen utensils to extra spices and such. They had tons of games and movies for kiddos do to during down times between adventures. I would highly recommend a horseback ride at Triple B Ranch 3 mile down the street.. As well as all the usual sites! I could not be happier with our stay at this beautiful home. Thank you for sharing the Helen Falls idea as well Jim! Sincerely, Michael and Thea, Kristi and Mike
Mike You guys were great guests and I really enjoyed working with you. We love it when guests can create their own family memories doing some of the things our family has enjoyed. We hope you wonderful family can come back again. Jim
We stayed in the house for 5 nights and have only great things to say. We made wonderful memories with our kids and this house had it all for everyone. It is in a great location to do tourist stuff as well as feel like you are a little secluded. Walking distance to parks, restaurants, and trails. Would stay here again!
Kim - your family were ideal guests. We love it when families can enjoy our home and the beautiful area. We too have many wonderful memories with our family. We would love to host you again anytime. Jim
We found the rental in tip-top shape and was ideal for our son, his wife, and 2 grand children (ages 6 & 4) plus grandpa and grandma. We had a delightful time at the cabin and also all the various attractions in the area. Some very heavy rains in the area while we were there, but not enough in our area to postpone anything we planned on doing. The owner/manager takes great pride in his property and it shows! We highly recommend the property and the area for families with young children. It is very close to being "in town" but you still feel as if you are in the woods and we had deer on the property several times while we were there.
Spike We are thrilled that your family was able to discover the unique nature of our cabin's location and size. Honestly, our family has had a very similar experience over the years and we have many good memories. We wold love to have you back again. Jim
I travelled to Woodland Park Haven with my wife, our 2 daughters (5 & 9), our niece (8), and my parents. This trip was the first trip to the mountains for all 3 children and they loved it. The house and location was perfect for us and allowed us easy access to everything we wanted to do on our trip. Jim and his family have a beautiful home and we were pleased with how at home we felt during our stay. The children loved the amount of space, the hot tub, and seeing a mother deer and her two fawns every day most of all. That is something they will never forget. The adults loved having the extra room for the children to play and having a grill and fully stocked kitchen to prepare meals. We especially loved the coziness, the hot tub (used every night!!!) and the relaxing mornings and evenings sitting outside in the fresh mountain air. Jim is an excellent host and was so easy to visit with. Everything about our stay was top notch. Our family will be forever grateful for the memories Jim and his family helped create simply by providing us with such a wonderful place to stay. We would love to return at some point in the future if they would have us as guests again. Thank you for everything.
Wow. Chris - your experience is EXACTLY what we hoped would happen when we opened up our home for vacation rental. Our family has many memories in in this home / area and we are thrilled that your family has created them too. We have been blessed to have some amazing guests like you. Thanks for giving us the privilege to host your family. Jim
We stayed in the cabin while attending a family wedding at the AF Academy in Colorado Springs. The location was perfect - we were able to enjoy Colorado Springs as well as the Pikes Peak and Woodland Park area. The cabin itself was immaculately clean and had plenty of room for 4 adults and 1 child to stay comfortably. We appreciated the prompt responses of the owner to our every question qnd request. Finally, our deposit was returned to us in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend the property to others.
LW You guys were fantastic guests. It means a great deal to us when guests can share family moments like a wedding in our home. We would love to have you back. All the best. Jim
Woodland Park Haven is the perfect place if you want to enjoy Colorado--especially for families. It's location gives you quick access to much of what Colorado has to offer. The view of Pikes Peak from the hot tub is a bonus. The house has plenty of room and is very comfortable. You definitely feel like you're in a home rather than a rented condo. I highly recommend Woodland Park Haven for anyone planning a Colorado vacation.
Jonathan It was a true joy to host your beautiful family. It's fun for me to interact with guests and help them discover some of the best of Colorado. You guys were awesome guests and we would LOVE to have you back again some day. Jim
This house was well-stocked and maintained. We were made comfortable in every possible way. It was clean and spacious with a wonderful view of Pike's Peak. The location made visiting sites in and around Colorado Springs easy and fun. We found plenty to do within a 30 minute radius. The neighborhood is quiet, too, with a remote feel to it - even though it is only blocks from Hwy 24. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I took my daughter, her husband, and their 4 children on this trip. The house had plenty of space for all of us to relax and play without getting in each others' hair. My only regret is that it was cold - rainy and snowing - so we didn't venture out to the hot tub. I would definitely stay here again.
Melinda - you guys were fantastic guests - just the kind we hope to host. I feel bad about the weather which was certainly abnormal for that time of year. You are welcome to come back anytime.
We were very pleased with our stay at this property. During our stay, there was lots of unexpected snow. Jim called to check in with us and made sure the driveway was ployed, cleared. It was obvious to us that he wants his guests to be comfortable and enjoy their stay. The hot tub was nice! It was neat to be sitting in the hot tub as snow fell on you. We had some deer that came to visit and play in the snow. There was plenty of room for our family and everything we needed. The cabin was close to a walmart and starbucks. The Netflix was a bonus! We cuddled in and watched movies in the evenings and enjoyed the games that were provided. We will definitely be back to visit Woodlands Park and stay at the cabin. It was well taken care of, clean, are needs were met and the owner obviously takes pride in the property and cares about his guests. A+++
Thanks Tonia! I feel bad that you had to deal with some much snow - which is definitely not normal for us at that time of year. But I am so glad you enjoyed yourselves and I hope you can come back again.
This Cabin was beautiful with a great view of Pikes Peak from the back of the porch. It was fully stocked with almost any everyday essential you could think of, which was so helpful for homemade dinners at the cabin. It was very cozy and the surrounding area was welcoming as well. There is a Safeway grocery store in walking distance as well as a beer/liquor/wine store located right next to it. One day we went exploring to check out the area and found Bierwerks and Ute Pass to be great breweries and offered some nice snacks as well. The hot tub was a fantastic addition to the cabin and such a beautiful view of the stars at night while soaking in the hot tub. The only down fall with the hot tub is that it seemed to be high in chemicals because our skin would dry out and feel quite itchy after sitting in it the first 2 days we were there for our stay. Part of it could be also the high altitude with the dry and itchy skin but one of the bathing suites had changed color from the hot tub probably because of the chemicals. But we LOVED this cabin and we want to go back! We stayed 4 nights here to start out trip out to Colorado and then spent the remainder of our stay in Lakewood in a hotel to venture around Denver and to attend a concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. It was a fantastic time all around but the initial start of the trip at the cabin was the best! We had plenty of room to relax and stretch out at the cabin unlike the stay at the hotel. Jim was very welcoming and responsive to any issues or questions we may have had and he was very easy to reach! This cabin is also close to the Garden of the Gods and Manitou Springs. We ventured to the Garden of the Gods and went hiking up Green Mountain Falls which had plenty of beautiful picture perfect sites to see.
Caitlyn - your group was SO much fun to host. And I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We work hard to provide a good experience. Thanks for the feedback on the house and the hot tub. We have a professional company check the chemicals twice per / week and everything seemed to be balanced before and after your stay. As a fellow midwesterner, I too struggle with dry skin in Colorado. The hot tub chemicals can dry your skin out even more. We would love to host your group again. All the best, Jim
My husband and I stayed with our three kids (16,12,8) for spring break. Loved being right in Woodland Park-such a cute town up in the mountains-and being close to the restaurants and grocery store. We drove to a park to hike(Red Rocks I believe it was called), hit some of the restaurants that the owner suggested(all great!), and it was only about a 20min drive to Col. Springs, which was nice. The house was clean, kitchen had everything we needed, the beds were comfortable, and it was wonderful to have games and a huge selection of movies to choose from. Our favorite part was the hot tub! I think we used it twice every day!:) Great view of Pikes Peak from the backyard/hot tub. Go for a drive around dusk and you'll see plenty of deer. We would definately stay at this wonderful house again!
We have been blessed to have some wonderful guests, and your family was no exception. Your family was a true joy - exactly what we hoped when we decided to open up our home to other families. I am so very thankful we were able to host you and we most certainly hope your family will join us again.
We stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. Our three granddaughters live in Colo. Spgs. and we took them for their spring break to spend some quality time. Everything was great, the views, quiet neighborhood, nice big yard and close to everything you would need. We didn't go out to any restaurants, as we prefer to cook our own meals and one of the reasons we wanted a house. This one did not disappoint. It was well stocked with everything you need. If we come back to this area, we will plan to book this again.
You have no idea how happy this feedback makes me. Our family has wonderful memories in this home and we love it when other families can create their own memories here. We would love to host Bob and and is family any time!
My family had a wonderful time at Woodland Park Haven. We celebrated Thanksgiving in the mountains. The home was clean and well-stocked, even for preparing a Thanksgiving meal. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We hiked several trails nearby, and enjoyed the local restaurants. We recommend this cabin to those wanting a central location to mountains and restaurants/shopping.
Steve & Kelly It was a joy to host your beautiful family for Thanksgiving and I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you can come back again. Jim
Our stay at the Woodland Park Haven was very nice and comfortable, we spent 7 wonderful days there. It was literally our home away from home. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed as described in the listing. The cabin was very clean and neat as the photos show. The view of Pikes Peak and the surrounding mountains are spectacular. There are plenty of places to visit around the area like Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, etc. We did not use the Hot Tub, but we certainly used the gas grill. There are instructions posted on the fridge and on a binder on how everything on the cabin works. We certainly recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to vacation here in the Woodland Park/Colorado Springs area. Jim was very kind and hospitable and we thank him for letting us stay in his cabin.
Daniel Your group were model guests for those of us who open up their homes for vacation rental. I am so glad you had a great time and we most certainly would welcome you back any time. Jim
As a frequent VRBO renter, the owner was wonderful to work with and very accomodating, especially with changes in dates and our dog! The house was perfect for our needs, and the location was great for a weekend wedding where we needed to be able to get to both Colorado Springs and Divide. My only comment is that it really is in an urban setting with fairly close neighbors on all sides, but there is a large yard.
Jane - your family were wonderful guests and we welcome you back any time. Jim
Our family stayed in the cabin during our visit to the Woodland Park area. This is a very, very peaceful and relaxing home. Good sized rooms with all the amenities. I especially enjoyed the sunroom. This cabin is within easy access of the major roads making it really easy to come and go. We really enjoyed our stay. The owner was amazing to deal with.
Gale - your family were fantastic guests - exactly the kind of guests we hope to host. I'm thrilled that you had a good time and we would love to host you again. Jim
Never been to this part of Colorado but found this great little cabin. We came out for a wedding and a vacation. I talked to several other cabin owners I got the run around about our 9 guests (6 adults and 3 kids). I then found this great little cabin and spoke with the owner Jim. He was great and so was his staff. Anything we needed they helped or gave us suggestions on what to see. It was awesome to meet and talk to such nice people it made the vacation so much at ease. The cabin was clean and good size for our group of 9. We had plenty of room to chat and had fun. Plus on top of that the owner had games there for us too, inside and out. It felt like we were at home. It was nice to see outdoor games for the kids to enjoy and fun board games we enjoyed from a little rainy weather. The cabin was located in a great place of Woodland Park and quiet little town where we could find everything we needed even a Walmart for groceries. It was close to many attractions everything was within 30 minutes. Tons of fun things to do. I highly recommend this cabin for a enjoyable time, you'll love it. Jim is great, the staff is great and the cabin is comfy. Enjoy we did Thanks Jim from your friends in Michigan
Gerald In 2+ years of vacation rentals, your family was one of the very best renters we have ever hosted. When we opened up our home, it was our dream that families would be able to enjoy this home just as our family has. We were greatly impressed and thankful for the care you gave to our home. We would love to have you back again some day. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to host you. Jim
This cabin is such a wonderful place to stay. A true home away from home. You have a beautiful view of Pikes Peak to look at every day and night. It is not far from Woodland Park and Colorado Springs. The owners are truly kind people and so accommodating. The cabin happen to be a truck by lightening the night before we arrived. The few things that were damaged were taken care of as fast as they could get them and have people there to fix the issues while still respecting our privacy. They made sure everything was right with us and they we had what we needed. We definitely would return and stay here again. Sitting in the hot tub looking at Pikes Peak was a great way to end every day.
David & Linda I will never forget your stay at our cabin. We could not have asked for better renters that week. It is so rewarding to know that you had such a good time. We hope you will come back again. All the best - Jim
We spent 5 wonderful days in this cabin. We found it very clean and extremely well equipped in every way. Twice we saw deer in the yard plus other small animals. The cabin is very close to Woodland Park which includes restaurants, grocery stores, drug stores, etc. We did not use the hot tub but it was clean in every way. Communication with the owner was outstanding. This is an adventure you don't want to miss. Security deposit was promptly refunded. Thanks to the owners for a great vacation.
Ralph I am thrilled to know you had a good experience. Guest satisfaction means a great deal to us. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to host your group. All the best. Jim
We found the home to be very cozy and complete with all amenities. The property is exactly as shown in the pictures. We found the home to be clean and well maintained. The view of Pikes Peak from the property is spectacular. The owner is amazing and very familiar with the area and nearby attractions. He is welcoming and genuinely wants your stay to be comfortable and convenient. I would definitely recommend considering this property for your next stay and will recommend it to friends and family when traveling in the Woodland Park, Colorado area.
David and Lori You and your friends win the "Gold Star" for renters. You were awesome to work with through some unique situations and you are guests I will not forget. I sincerely hope you come back again. All the best - Jim
The Newberrys went out of there way to accomadate me and my extended family. It was a breath of fresh air to wake up with the deer in the yard every morning we were there. Thanks a ton!!!!
Todd While your stay was brief it was a true pleasure to host your family. And as promised - you left the house in great condition. THANK YOU! You truly were fantastic guests and we would love to host your family another time. Jim
Everything at wooland park haven was great! Nice and clean and plenty of room for us. The kids really enjoyed the hot tub. We had one little problem with the internet, but it was taken care of immediately. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Thanks JD. We were happy to host you and your kids this summer. You were fantastic guests and I am thrilled that you had such a good time. We hope you can come back again. Jim
We traveled to Colorado with a total of 2 adults, a 2 year old, 5 year old, and 13 year old. No complaints about this house...we had a great time! The kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds, everyone loved the hot tub, and the kitchen (and whole house) and all furnishings were clean and in working order. We saw quite a bit of deer in the yard, which was fun. The owner was very friendly and easy to work with. He even gave us a heads up when there was going to be bad weather and let us know how we could get alerts if the highway was closed. Overall highly recommended for just about any occasion. Regarding disabilities, there are two floors so there are some stairs (at the time there was a safety gate in the closet we were able to use for the 2 year old), but the main floor has a bedroom, full bathroom, kitchen, living room, and dining room. As long as you weren't sleeping upstairs you wouldn't need to go up there. Just 1-2 steps into the house and 1-2 steps into the sun room. We would stay there again.
Thanks Charlotte - we LOVED hosting your group. You were fantastic guests and we would love to host you again someday. As I have said before, we have many family memories in this home and we love it when other families can create memories too. Jim
Woodland Park Haven; more like Woodland Park Heaven. From the views of Pikes Peak, to the amenities stocked throughout the property, this property had it all. Comfortable beds, very clean, and the way the cabin made out group feel like home blew us away. The property is perfect for groups of all ages and comfortably sleeps a plethora of guests. I am hoping to make this property a regular getta way. Best vacation and vacation home ever.
Thanks Dylan - you guys were a great group and I'm glad you had a good time. We hope you can come back again.
We really enjoyed our stay at Woodland Park Haven last week. The cabin was very clean and well maintained, with plenty of room for this rare family get-together – 5 adults and one large dog. We had everything we needed to prepare meals, keep up with laundry, and explore area activities. Pike’s Peak was visible from the back deck, as were some local deer. The hot tub was a welcome treat after days of hiking and taking in the Pike’s Peak Climb. There were lots of games available for our evening entertainment. Jim was great to work with! We would highly recommend this property. We hiked Garden of the Gods, Red Rocks, the Crags and Florissant Fossil Beds. We visited the Broadmoor Hotel and the Hill Climb’s Fan Fest where dozens of cars, trucks, motorcycles, etc. were on displayed before the race. We enjoyed sweets from the Donut Mill, breakfast at the Hungry Bear, lunch at Good Karma in Manitou Springs, pizza from AJ’s, sandwiches from Joanie’s Deli, beers at Ute Pass Brewing and Bierwerks, and a birthday dinner (with music) at Carmen Tapas.
Dave & Bev - this review put a smile on my face. We absolutely love to host families like yours. Thank you so much for taking good care of our home and providing us the opportunity to host you. We would love to have you back again some day. Jim
We had a great time,nice cabin, everything clean, and just overall perfect! We all enjoyed our stay very much, and had a great time.
Charles - we very much enjoyed hosting your group. I must confess my jealousy as you were able to experience both the mountains and motorcycles. We would love to have you back again. Jim
Excellent place and convient to everything. We had all the room we needed, visits from friendly deer, and panoramic views of mountains. Walmart was close by and other conveniences. House had everything we needed. Outstanding property.
Tom - we have been blessed with some great guests and your family was no exception. It's so much fun for us to see other families creating memories at this home just as our family has. Thanks for a great experience and we hope you will return again. Jim
This cabin is in a great location for all the sights the Colorado Springs area has to offer. It is very well stocked and very clean. The hot tub was a nice addition. Wal-Mart and Safeway are only a few blocks away. Rainbow Falls ATV riding trails are only a few miles north and are nice to ride on. If you are looking for seclusion this would not be for you as it is in Woodland Park with neighbors all around. Jim was great to work with and called to make sure we were settled in.
Patty - it was so good to host your family and you were wonderful guests. I love it when guests are able to enjoy the best of Colorado as your family did - including ATV's! You are most welcome back anytime and thank you so very much for taking good care of our home. Jim
The owner of Woodland Park is a very good person to work with, and the property is explained accurately in the description. I stayed with 3 other guests and we had plenty of space and quiet areas to relax with terrific views. The cabin is in a great location because it is so close to many Colorado attractions and it offers a private spot to come home too. We loved our stay and had a great time. Thanks
Drake We typically host families and your group were fantastic guests and a pleasant surprise. I'm aware how important it was for you guys to get some rest during a busy season. I'm thrilled you were able to enjoy the cabin in the area. We would love to have you back again some day. Jim
Our family enjoyed this scenic, private VRBO over Valentine’s Day. It was quick and easy to get to from the main highway and very close to local amenities. The house has an interesting layout with glassed-in foyers in the front and back of the house. Once inside the front foyer, we felt very welcomed into the restful, cozy dining area and TV area w/ lots of DVDs to pick from. Upstairs our two teens enjoyed the mountains views from the large open loft area and other bedroom. We savored the sunroom! Not many places have an enclosed sunroom especially with majestic mountain scenery. In the evenings, we soaked in the new hot tub gazing at the stars and the fun display of the hot tub lights. We hope to return to this oasis for another family trip.
Lisa and Chris We absolutely love it when families can stay at our home and create memories as your family did. I am thrilled that you guys had such a good time and we would love to have you back again. You were great guests and we sincerely appreciate you leaving the home is such good condition. Jim
This was just what my husband and I needed! We are both so busy with work and this gave us a wonderful opportunity to tune everything out! The cabin offered all of the amenities of home (and more) while being a great getaway! Thank you so much for sharing this great place with us!!!
Emily - I am SO glad you and Anthony enjoyed your stay at our home. Thank you for being such great guests and your dogs were so well behaved we barely knew they were with you. You guys are welcome to come back ANY time. Jim
This place had everything we needed and could want! The hot tub was amazing and there was plenty of room for all 7 of us..inside and outside. And our two dogs had just as much fun as we did!!! We will be back!! Thanks Jim!!
April - you family was a joy to host. I am particularly thankful when I see families with young children able to enjoy the home as your did. I too have wonderful memories of family vacations. We would love to have you back again some day. Thanks for being such a great group.
We enjoyed our stay at this property in Woodland Park. Everything in the description was accurate and we did not face any issues during our stay. We had stayed in Woodland Park before, and it is a good place to be up in the mountains, yet not too far from things to do/see. I found everything about the booking process to be straight-forward and there were no surprises. The internet/satellite TV service was well above average for what one would expect of a rental. The house itself was clean and all the provided amenities were plenty sufficient to make our stay comfortable. Would definitely recommend this property.
Steve I am so glad that this trip worked out for you! We were disappointed when a previous reservation canceled last minute, but thrilled that your family was able to come and bring in the New Year in Woodland Park. Your stay at our cabin is exactly the kind of thing that we hoped for when we decided to open our home up for others to create memories. Likewise, thank you so much for taking such good care of our home. We would love to have you back again some day. Jim
This a great house for families. It has a nice sun room and a wonderful hot tub. One exciting moment for us was when we got out of the hot tub when it was dark and my youngest daughter said "is that a moose?" Well it wasn't a moose but ended up being about 7 deer right there in the back yard close to the hot tub. We didn't even know they were there and could barely see them in the dark. The location was great! Everything was wonderful.
Mark & Kim You just made my day with this review! It was our hope that other families would be able to create memories just as our family has. I am thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back again. Jim
My wife and I went here on our honeymoon. We greatly enjoyed the cabin, the amenities, the neighborhood, and Woodland Park on the whole. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a little R&R and to get away from the busyness of life.
Ben We are honored that you and Michelle would share such a special time in your life at our home. Thank you for giving us that privilege. You were fantastic guests and we would be honored to have you back for an anniversary. Jim
We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin. All the supplies we needed were there, the cabin was clean, and the atmosphere was so cozy. We loved the mama deer and her two little ones who visited almost every day. Thank you so much for our refreshing week in the mountains!
Jane - it was a pleasure to host your girls group! We normally host families but we found your group to work out very well and you were wonderful guests. I am thrilled that the weather worked out so well for you and we would love to have you back again. Jim
We loved the home, the area and the time we spent there. We were there during the flooding and while Colorado Springs and other areas had lots of problems we were fine in Woodland Park. The home had everything you need for a comfortable vacation and the owner was wonderful! The views of Pikes Peak when it was not raining or cloudy were spectacular from the sun porch, living room and jacuzzi! I highly recommend this home for a great vacation. I'm looking forward to returning.
Jane - you guys were fantastic guests! I feel bad about the rain as it was very abnormal, but I glad you still had a good time. And thanks again for referring your son's window cleaning business to us - he did an excellent job! We look forward to having you again.
We chose this location for a family vacation with two of our older sons and were thrilled with everything. The home is immaculate, well maintained, and central to many sites and trails as well as city conveniences. The owner checked in just the right amount. He even called to check that our wireless was working which he knew was very important to one son and his girlfriend who both had some work obligations. One morning there were four mule deer bucks bedded in the yard. We all did many trails which are very close. One day the boys did Pike's Peak because the trailhead was so convenient. The hot tub was always a relaxing end to each day. Stay here and you will have everything you could expect. We will be back. Thank you Jim!
Jim & Deb, Wow! I love it when guests take advantage of the best of the area. As I told you, we prefer to host families and I am so glad your family created some of your own memories. We look forward to having you back again! Jim
This year our vacation in woodland park was great. The house was just as expected all set up and felt like we were right at home the moment we got there. We enjoyed the great weather the week we were there. We had friends come from Tennessee with us that enjoyed all the adventures of hiking, shopping, and taking the daughter on different activities such as the North Pole. The owner Jim was great to work with, He made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. We all enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to go again next year.
Danielle, Thanks for your kinds words and honestly, your group were great renters. We are thrilled when people come enjoy our home and the mountains as your group did. We also appreciate how you left our home in great condition. We are ready to host your next trip whenever you are ready. Jim
We had a great time in Woodland Park Colorado. The home was all set up and ready when we arrived. The owner called us that evening to verify everything was Ok and if we needed anything. We had plenty of room in the house for 6 adults. We typically vacation in Winter Park or Breckenridge Colorado. This was our first visit to the Pikes Peak area. While we were here, we went on 3 wonderful hikes, The Crags, Pancake Rocks Trail, and Catamount Trail in Green Mountain Falls. Our adult Children also enjoyed the Zip lines outside of Manitou Springs. My parents stayed with us in the house as well and enjoyed golfing in the area. We were able to do our own thing during the day and then catch up with each other in the evenings over dinner or mornings while eating breakfast. The house is close to Wal-Mart and Safeway for shopping. We took advantage and made picnic lunches every day before we headed out. Several evenings, we stayed at home and used the grill to cook our dinner. We all loved our stay. It was hard to return to the 95 degree temperatures in Missouri
Janelle - we have been blessed to have some wonderful guests stay in our home and your family was no exception. It thrills us to see families enjoy the best of the Pikes Peak area during the day and then the best of our home in the evenings / mornings. The fact that you were able to have three generations of family for your stay reminds me of some of our family memories in this home. We hope you can come again and escape that Missouri heat! Jim
My daughters, grandchildren, and I had a wonderful stay at this Woodland Park vacation home. Jim was super to work with in setting up the reservation and talking to me in advance. He even called us after we arrived to see if we needed anything. The house is very clean and well-kept. It had everything we needed from linens, to games & movies for the kids, to a spacious, shaded yard for the kids to run around and play. We were excited to see the house after looking at the online pictures. The house is even nicer than the pictures show! We even saw the fox and some elk from our driveway. The sunroom provides a great area to sit and read a book or have the kids play their electronic games (that they brought) or some of the games at the house. We saved money by cooking meals in the well-equipped kitchen. The addition of the hot tub was a real treat! The house is conveniently located for trips to Santa's Workshop, the Cave of the Winds, and walking through the delightful town of Manitou Springs - which we did. We definitely want to visit the Woodland Park area again, stay in this delightful vacation home, and ride the Cog Railroad to the top of Pikes Peak next time. :) I highly recommend this vacation home. Jeannie
Jeannie, This is exactly what we had in mind when we decided to open our home for vacation rentals. It was a true joy to work with you and we are excited to host you again. Jim
Our family has grown to need more bedrooms and this was wonderful. We enjoyed the sun porch the most as it is where we spent most of our time. My one year old daughter learned how to climb stairs on that porch. We also saw four deer late one afternoon. It was so peaceful and beautiful. We plan on making a return visit in the future.
Angela It looks like you were able to enjoy some of our favorite qualities of the home! It was a pleasure to work with you and we would love to have you back again to create more family memories. Jim
We had a great time with our children and grandchildren. The cabin was close to everything we wanted to do! It was well stocked with everything we needed, and the hot tub was especially nice! Jim was great to communicate with and do business with. Thanks so much!
Becky As I have told others, we opened our home for vacation rental so that other families like yours could enjoy the home just as our family has. You were GREAT to work with and we hope you can come back again on your next trip. Jim
This is a great cabin and all was just as represented by photos and descriptions on the internet. Recently updated and very cozy. Awesome views from the deck and hot tub. Very nice and safe area. Very close to grocery stores and other shopping. Lots of deer wondering around. Very clean and well stocked. Large parking area.
We stayed at this property the third week of May and had a fantastic time. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed. It was extremely clean and organized. My three boys loved the movie selections, the bunk beds, the hot tub, the sun room, the deer walking around in the back yard, etc. It was a few blocks from the Dinosaur Museum. Close to the grocery store and restaurants in Woodland Park. We were 20-30 minutes from all the major attractions in Colorado Springs, 10-15 minutes from Manitou Springs (great restaurants) and the hiking near Pike's Peak is great (try The Crags, the view is awesome). The owner, Jim, was very easy to work with and called to check in on us and make sure everything was in order. We had a one year old and were concerned about where he would sleep, but when we got there a brand new crib was delivered, which was perfect. I would especially recommend this place to people with kids although it would suite anyone. Loved our stay here. MR

Matt and Hannah, You just made my day! When we decided to open our home for vacation rentals - your experience is exactly what we hoped for! Our family has also created special memories in that home and in that area. You were fantastic to work with and we would love to have you back again. Jim
We thoroughly enjoyed our short five day stay in this beautiful vacation property. The house was extemely clean and well stocked with all the amenities. The view of Pike's Peak from the sun room was priceless and also our favorite room to relax in. Ample space and parking for guests. We even experienced a small snow shower. Our stay in Woodland Park was during the first week in May and we cannot wait to come back for a longer period of time. Gary and Barbara from Austin, Texas
Gary and Barbara - we were thrilled to host you! It's rare to see snow at that time of year but I'm glad you had such great weather the rest of the time. Thanks letting us serve you and I hope you come back again! Jim
My wife & I hosted our daughter, son-in-law and two small children. The home is well furnished and extremely quiet, which is a blessing with small children and naps. The home owner (Jim) provided many great tips of what to do in the area. His recommendation to eat breakfast at the "Hungry Bear" was wonderful. If you go there, remember to be ready to feast. On Saturday morning , we sat in the sunroom and watched 5 deer graze about 15 feet away from the window. This was a trill for the kids. Overall, we plan to return for a longer stay in the future.
Thanks Stu! Your family is exactly what we had in mind when we decided to open this home up for vacation rental. I am thrilled that you had such a great time and we look forward to your next stay.
A nice 2 tory house in a quiet neighborhood. It has a great view of Pike's Peak. The yard is very big and fenced so the dogs got to roam at will instead of having to be taken out which was great because it got very cold on Tuesday & Wednesday. The house is located close to a Walmart and Safeway for groceries and what ever else you might need. The kitchen had everything you need to whip up any sore of meal. I think the only thing that wasn't there was a toaster. There are plenty of outdoor activities in the area, hiking, mountain biking etc. Manitou Springs and Garden of the Gods are 20 minutes or so away and Colorado Springs is about 30 minutes. Highly recommend it. The owner was great and responded quickly to all emails. He also sent us a coffee mug with a photo of the house on it after we finished our stay. Thanks Jim!
You were fantastic to work with Dave. I sincerely hope your family (and dogs) will come back again! It was a pleasure to host you.
We really enjoyed our stay at this vacation rental! The pictures accurately represent the home and it was very clean, being able to bring our dogs along was a big plus. The kitchen has everything necessary to cook and grocery stores are nearby. Woodland Park is very picturesque and so close to many attractions. Our favorite nearby places to visit are Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods, Mueller State Park and downtown Denver. The owner is personable and quick to respond. We will definately rent this home again on our next to visit Colorado.
It was a pure joy to work with you Harold! We love to host families like yours. We very much look forward to having you back again.
This vacation home is gorgeous, quiet and a great get away. I live in the Denver area and was looking for an escape from my very busy and stressful life. Finding this haven was perfect because it wasn't too far from home but just far enough that I could call it a vacation. The home was clean, spacious and nestled in a very quiet neighborhood with gorgeous views of Pikes Peak. After staying here for 3 nights and 4 days I felt calm, rejuvenated, and ready to face the world again. Whether watching a movie, reading a magazine or having a cup of coffee in the morning on the enormous porch in the back overlooking Pikes Peak all of my experience on the property was serene. The weekend I was there Woodland Park had a major snow storm, this only enhanced my experience. I spent much of the weekend in the hot tub with snow lightly kissing my face. I have never been in a hot top in the middle of a snow storm, it was remarkable. To enhance my vacation I received a relaxing massage at one of the spas in town and ate breakfast at the Hungry Bear twice. I am originally from New Orleans where food is not taken lightly, breakfast was excellent. The location of the home is perfect because it is easy to zip into town and pick up necessities, have a beer at the local bar or go for a beautiful drive into the mountains. While close to town the home has the perfect location in a quiet neighborhood that makes you feel transported into a make believe land of stillness. I would recommend this vacation home to anyone.
We hope you have many more times like this with us!
The cabis is great!! we stay there to spend holidays vacation and was a great family vacation!! We are from Mexico and our white christmas was so fun. I would say that is a quiet and pacific place, perfect to get some rest and calm time with my kinds (which is great to me because of my job I spend very log periods of time out of home and i really appreciate the time with my family on a warm, confortable and full equiped cabin... even with a hot tube -which i have not the lucky to try since the weather was very cold, but I am sure that during the summer should be amazing get in to the hot tube with my wife and some drinks!!
It was a pleasure to serve your family Alavaro. We opened our home for vacation renters because we wanted to host families like yours - hoping they would create some memories just as our family has. We would love to have you back in 2013!
Really enjoyed our stay! All the comforts of home in a beautiful retreat setting complete with a fox and deer wondering the property. Plenty of space to relax and have a great family time. Appreciated the time in Woodland Park with it's shops and restaurants. Great proximity to hiking and sightseeing.
It was great to have you stay - we look forward to you coming back!
