About Wendell C. Howie

As a former Dallas banker & business owner we traveled to Colordo every year.

Wendell C. Howie purchased this house in 2001

Why Wendell C. Howie chose South Central

We purchased the property back in 1999 with my father and brother. In 2001 we had finished our homes. Mine and my brothers homes are approximate approximately 4000 Sq Ft. with my fathers at around 2000 Sq Ft. located right on one of the Trout Ponds. (He fishes from his deck).

What makes this house unique

The Trout Creek Ranch is an incredible property with a stream (Trout Creek) running through the middle of the Valley thru two Trout Ponds. We have so enjoyed the property with nearby access to over 150 miles of trails through the National Forest. We are only 5 minutes from the town of Woodland Park and 25 minutes from Colorado Springs.

The property was beautiful. Can't beat the views. We saw moose and a fox from our balcony.

We had a blast there. We rented two of the houses for a small family reunion. May have to make it a yearly trip.

Peaceful beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The house is close to Woodland Park for pedicures and food. Our family of 16 stayed here for a week and there was plenty of room, dishes and towels. First place in 9 years that we didn't run out of trash bags and t paper!!! Loved walking to the pond to fish and caught some. Very peaceful place and big deck to enjoy. We like to cook so would recommend bringing a mixer or whisk and some mixing bowls and spices although there is a dollar tree in town that has all that. This place was number one❤️ Oh and we saw deer and a bear with two babies.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had the opportunity to see lots of wild life in our Ranch. Mama bear visits us every summer with her new born babies. We are so glad you had time to fish in our ponds and catch some trouts. Thanks for taking such good care of our home and we would love to see your lovely family in the near future. Thanks for letting us know we will get a new mixer for the home as well as some mixing bowls.

Great house on an amazing property. Had 8 adults and 5 kids. Amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

Close to Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, etc, but far enough out of town to enjoy the outdoors. The location and property were perfect for us. Highly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay and hope to return again. All greatly enjoyed the pool table and air hockey. Views were spectacular and our 6 year old granddaughter thoroughly enjoyed her fishing experience.

Mountain setting for USAFA graduation

  • 4 of 5

We had a big group coming to celebrate our son's graduation and this house was so accommodating! It was a great alternative to staying in colorado springs but still close enough to enjoy all of the graduation events. I would definitely recommend staying here and would stay here again myself. Nice having a washer / dryer, balconies were so nice, open concept made it easy to live and entertain a large group.

The only distractors were minor...check out by 10a was early for us since we had a graduation party there the night before and it was hard to get the refrigerator loaded up and all of the stuff we brought for a week's stay. Additionally, though I understand there must be a reason for it, the big red sign saying "private property enter by appointment only" was kind of an eye sore against the beauty of the place. Some additional towels would be great too.

Owner's Response: Air Force Academy Graduation time is so special. We really enjoy having families come and enjoy the property and the celebration time. We realize that the check out time of 10AM is early. However, the home is very large with 5 bedrooms and the cleaning crew take from 10AM until almost 4PM each time a guest departs. On the day of check out they were not completely ready until 3:45 PM. The next quests were arriving at 4 PM. We barely made it. We always sanitize the bathrooms, thoroughly clean, restock all sundries and launder all of the towels and linens after each departure. Living in the mountains, many times a large drive like the one entering the ranch, is mistaken as a public road. We had many cars entering our property mistakenly until we put up the sign. Regarding the towels... We always put out plenty of towels for the scheduled number of guests, but we will discuss the number of towels with the cleaning crew. We are glad you had a good time at the ranch. Hope to see you again! Wendell & Lili

Beautiful area, amazing home, wonderful owners

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and views. Owners are exceptional, very accommodating, go beyond what anyone would ever expect.

Wonderful area with easy access to the Air Force Academy. Amazing on how you can travel so little but feel so far away.

Owner's Response: Sometimes something happens that makes you realize you are meant to meet. For us, this was one of those times. We have been so privileged to meet David, his wife, several family members and especially his son, an outstanding young man at the Air Force Academy. It was a real treat for us. We look forward to seeing each other again soon.
