About Jim and Julie Gretz

Jim and Julie Gretz purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Jim and Julie Gretz chose Woodland Park
Our newly remodeled home was a diamond in the rough. We have dreamed of retireing in Colorado with a view of the mountains. This little gem afforded us the ability to view the mountains with all the conveniences at our doorstep. After traveling in Colorado over the years, we stayed in the area in the Summer of 2016 and fell in love with Woodland Park. Woodland Park known as the "City Above the Clouds" offers a small town atmosphere, friendily people and Pikes Peak at your doorstep.
What makes this Cabin unique
You will love this property with a completly remodeled interior that was our vision of comfort and a place to relax and see the mountains and wildlife. You will see some of my husbands handywork of a barn door he built for the bathroom to the fireplace mantel he picked out at the local saw mill and contructed as you push the button to enjoy a toasty warm fire. A natural gas firepit and grill will allow our guests the ease of enjoying the outdoor patio with farmily or friends. When you are tired of hiking, golfing site seeing, visiting a child at the USAFA, off-roading or whatever activity fills your day, it will be time to relax in the hot tub. This diamond in the rough is a treasure you will not want to miss.

perfect family getaway
This location is perfect for a family vacation or getaway. The house definitely exceeded our expectations. The owners provide all you need in the way of toiletries, bedding, seasonings, spices and cookware in the kitchen. There is even a Christmas tree displayed. My grandchildren loved that. The location is great. The location is about 8,400 ft elevation, hence the town is called "the ctiy above the clouds". We were close to all of the attractions we wanted to see. It has a country feel but is centrally located in the beautiful town of Woodland Park. We enjoyed using the barbecue grill, fire pit and hot tub daily. The view is absolutely breath taking. We live in the city so it was nice to enjoy the fresh air and outdoors. We were visited daily by deer grazing in the yard. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for that perfect vacation spot.
Thank you for visiting and it is our pleasure to host such wonderful guests. We love to make our home inviting and comfortable, a memorable place to stay. Sincerely— Jim/Julie
good property good views
The home was very nice and well equipped. Location was convenient with a good view of the peak. Some noise from How 24 but not too bad. It was somewhat disconcerting to discover what appeared to be a video camera pointed at the front door and the hot tub. We were required to do a load of laundry or face a $50 fee which seemed a little demanding.
We did communicate often and even stopped in to introduce ourselves. I do wish the concerns of the camera were mentioned. We have the camera on for safety of our property as most people do their own homes and only turn on notifications in-between guests and never "watch" our guests. We have suggested to our guests if they feel uncomfortable to park in the front to block the area and have never had a guest state any problems.
The check out instructions does require a load of laundry to be washed which is conveyed to our guests ahead of time. This ensures the cleaning crew has adequate time to complete the cleaning in a timely manner. I will work with guests if they convey ahead of an early departure and would have gladly worked with you if I had known. Very Sincerely, Julie
Lovely cabin. Very inviting. Clean and tidy.
Newly remodeled and decorated perfectly. Located in town with a country feel. Gorgeous view of Pike's Peak right from the patio. I would highly recommend staying here.
Everything in this cabin was updated and was centrally located to all of the things we wanted to do. We would definitely come back here. Julie had very quick responses and was helpful giving us ideas of places to eat or hike. Thank you!
It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. It is such a great location to be close to so many activities that Colorado has to offer and we hope you come back and visit again!
We stayed here as a family vacation getaway and it was great! The house was clean and had all kinds of extras that made it so much more enjoyable. Extras included nice/newer appliances, hot tub, gas fire pit, towels, soaps, toiletries, condiments, etc. Almost made it feel like you were still at home.
The location was nice for us and honestly I think it benefited us mid-westerners to stay in Woodland Park at 8,000+ feet of elevation when we went back down to Manitou Springs to hike. It was also nice having grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants all right next door. However, overall the location stays very quiet, and like others have mentioned deer usually visit the house at night. It was hilarious to watch our dog just sit at the glass doors and watch them for hours.
I'd definitely recommend staying here!
If you are visiting the area try The Hungry Bear restaurant as well! Delicious! It may also benefit you to know you're about 20 minutes from Manitou Springs, 30 minutes Colorado Springs, and hour 15 minutes from Canon City.
Lastly, the Gretz were great host! Julie will respond immediately if you have any questions or concerns. They also provide you with a 3 ring binder with a lot of useful information in it about how things around the house work. Thank you Jim and Julie for being such great hosts and keeping your property in such great shape!
Thank you - you were all amazing guests. We appreciate you chose our home and felt comfortable during your stay! Please visit again. Jim/Julie
Such a cute cabin! We sat in the hot tub, played games, and enjoyed the wildlife. It slept 6 very comfortably!
We are so glad you were able to enjoy the great views and relax. Please visit us again!
