"My husband and I came to the cabin for our 10th anniversary. Our stay was fantastic! We Loved watching the chipmunks in the mornings and evenings. The coffee bar was awesome. I enjoyed the salted caramel flavor! The cabin is close to Mueller State Park which has excellent hiking trails. We loved the mountain view from the hot tub. Everything we needed to cook was there. Best vacation my husband and I have had!! We loved the home!! The only complaint we have is the bathroom is downstairs, no biggie for us though."

"We stayed at the Pikes Peak Retreat during the Air Force Academy 2015 grad week. There were a couple of days that we had to be at the academy early, but other than that, we really didn't mind the commute (about an hour depending on traffic). It was so nice to return to this peaceful property after running around doing graduation stuff! The beds were all very comfortable, and the great room provided a great place for everyone to gather. The property was well maintained, and the kitchen had everything we needed. We went for lots of walks around the property, enjoyed the water wild life across the road, and my son did some mountain biking as well. We had a great week!"

"Lilly and Wendell were very gracias hosts. The house was immaculate and very well maintained. The setting was serene and made me feel I was in the wilderness although I was only about 2 miles from downtown Woodland Park. My 4-legged friend and I had a great time fishing and playing in the pond and trying to catch the big boy trout stuck in the overflow pool. I almost had him but he won out and remained until the next person gives it a try. Hint-he likes live grasshoppers! I would highly recommend renting from Wendell and Lilly in any of their beautiful properties."

"My wife and I wanted to find a place away from the beaten path but still close to the amenities of civilization and definitely found it at TomCat Ranch. The home met all our expectations and it was reassuring to my wife who is not an outdoor type to be able to see the highway in the valley, knowing if a problem came up we would not be far from getting assistance. The view is spectacular, and our stay was so relaxing...the week went by too fast. Mike, the owner was very helpful, driving me around his property and sharing stories about the ranch. He even checked in with us one night to make sure the furnace was operating on one of the colder nights. The owners live just up the road and are available to address any problems or questions we had. We watched the lunar eclipse one night and thoroughly enjoyed having an outside fire(ample firewood provided!)...and the nighttime sky is gorgeous.
For the hiker and hunter, the property is surrounded on two sides by national forest and access is easy. Buena Vista is about 8 miles away if you need groceries and the property is about midway between Salida and Leadville, so there are plenty of things to do during the day and return in the evening to unwind.
And I have to mention the exodus of birds that swept through the property one morning. There seemed to be an endless stream of Stellar Jays, Pine Grosbeaks and other birds that headed down in to the valley. Whether this was a one time thing or is a common event, unfortunately we had to leave the next day and were unable to see a repeat performance.
So, if you have not guessed yet, we highly recommend a stay at TomCat Ranch."
