Colorado Springs chalet description

Enjoy a secluded mountain vacation in Pikes Peak Region of the Rockies and surrounded by the Pike National Forest. Our fully furnished home in a pristine environment, wildlife sightings and magnificent sunrises/sunsets and night skies in addition to hiking trails, fishing and other activities.

15 miles to beautiful WOODLAND PARK with all city amenities, 30 miles to COLORADO SPRINGS. PANORAMIC MOUNTAIN AND LAKE VIEWS, PRIVATE LAKE, PIKE NATIONAL FOREST IN THE BACKYARD! MOUNTAINS OF THINGS TO DO: FISHING, HIKING, PICNICKING, FOUR-WHEELING... RESTAURANTS AND SIGHTSEEING JUST 15 MIN AWAY! GORGEOUS NATURE AND WILDLIFE; PEACE AND QUIET! PARADISE FOR ARTISTIC PHOTOGRAPHY AND PLAIN AIR PAINTING... KIDS WILL LOVE IT TOO: TONS OF TOYS, BOOKS, DVDS, TENTS FOR KIDS OF ALL AGES.

This RETREAT is a custom designed COLORADO VACATION HOME. It offers all the comfort and charm of MOUNTAIN RETREAT, with panoramic view windows, 2 big spacious decks with Pikes Peak and mountain views. At sunrise and sunset, colors play off the rocks in a constantly changing show...

Each guestroom is tastefully appointed. Neutral earth tones add to the tranquil environment for your comfort.

You will find a lot of information about area attractions, maps and visitor's guides in the living room.

Just 15 min away from Woodland Park, PIKES PEAK RETREAT is a perfect home base for exploring Pikes Peak Region: Woodland Park, Cripple Creek, Historic Manitou Springs and Historic Old Colorado City(a part of Colorado Springs) and Colorado Springs.

Settle into quiet relaxation or take off to enjoy the forest, the mountains and the lake, hiking trails, and prolific wildlife.

Have a picnic - food always tastes better outdoors. You can take a book or just enjoy the nature, or watch the stars right above you - they seem to be so close: you lie on the deck at night and marvel at stars that never seemed so bright before...

Watch beautiful sunsets, enjoy panoramic mountain views, relax on the deck with a glass of wine or a cup of tea...

If you enjoy hiking, biking or riding ATV/dirt bike there are a lot of trails around. The Pike National Forest, located in the heart of Colorado, is probably the most well-known and popular National Forest in the state. Pike National Forest offers a variety of recreation opportunities: trophy trout streams, abundant and varied wildlife, seven Fourteeners (mountains with peaks above 14,000 feet), many miles of trails...

If you would like to explore other areas, Mueller State Park’s 50 miles of trails also provide a great 'playground' for the hiker, mountain biker, wildlife watcher and winter sports enthusiast. A popular wildlife watching area. Park visitors traverse the park’s numerous trails on foot, snowshoes, cross-country skis, horseback and mountain bike, depending on the season

Fly Fishing – Gold Medal fishing can be found in the famed South Platte River located approximately 7 miles from the property. Gill Trail offers Gold Medal catch-and-release fishing along the Platte River.

You can go cross-country skiing right from the doorstep. There are motorcycles, ATV and four wheel drive trails and roads in the adjacent Pike National Forest. Great trails for mountain biking. No need to bring your bike you can rent bikes and get trail information at Woodland Park Shop (Team Telecycle).

Walk across the street to the lake or a creek a couple of miles away. In the spring, wildflowers bloom along the pass you'll probably want to take down to the lake.

Please inquire more INFORMATION & LINKS to view more PICTURES of the property and area attractions. You will find more information and visitor guides at the house.
