Overview

About the property

4 bedroom 2 bath conveniently located

This property sits on the west edge of Woodland Park. It has a large wrap around deck with stunning views of Pikes Peak from the back of the property. You are conveniently close to town on a cul de sac with very little traffic.

Woodland Park is a quaint town with great little shops and amazing restaurants. The Dinosaur Museum is in the heart of town and down the road a bit is the start of Pikes Peak Hwy. The area provides ample opportunity for outdoor activities such as hiking, bird watching, or fishing. A 15 minute drive into Manitou Springs and you can enjoy Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, or ride the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. Seven Falls, Air Force Academy and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo are located in Colorado Springs which is a 30 minute drive. Santa's Village is located along Pikes Peak Hwy along with many gift shops. Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, and the Hornbek Homestead are located outside Florissant which is a 15 minute drive from the house. Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center is located between Divide and Florissant. Enjoy a scenic drive to Cripple Creek, a historic mining town, for gambling. You may also decide to tour the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine or ride the Cripple Creek & Victor Narrow Gauge Railroad. Canon City and the Royal Gorge are less than 60 miles away. Denver is approximately an hour and a half from the house if you'd like to visit the Denver Zoo, have fun at Elitch Gardens or take in a Colorado Rockies baseball game at Coors Field.

Adults staying at the house... there are several breweries within the Woodland Park, Manitou Springs, Colorado Springs and Divide area. Ute Pass Brewing Co and Bierworks are both located in Woodland Park and Paradox Beer Company is located in Divide which is only an 8 minute drive.

As you may notice from the pictures, the property does sit adjacent to Highway 24 and the traffic can be heavy at times. However, as mentioned above, the property itself sits off a frontage road on a cul de sac with very little traffic.

A side note, as is typical with mountain homes this house does not have air conditioning. Even though air conditioning is not listed in the amenities below we felt it worth mentioning separately so there is no confusion.

Check in time is 4:00 PM MST and check out time is 10:00 AM MST.

About Corey Jacobs

I was born and raised in Iowa where I currently live with my wife and two of our three children. I went to elementary, jr high and high school in the same small town which my children currently attend. I am a University of Northern Iowa graduate with a Mathematics degree. I'm a strategy director for a company I've been employed with for 11 years. My wife and I like to vacation with our children and the mountains have always been one of our favorite places.

Corey Jacobs purchased this house in 2016

Why Corey Jacobs chose South Central

My family and I have vacationed in Colorado a few times and absolutely love the state with everything it has to offer. I wanted to purchase a home that would allow us to enjoy the scenery whenever we were able to make the trip. We would love for others to see and enjoy Colorado the way we have been able to enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

We chose this house because of the location. The wrap around deck and the views of Pikes Peak are breath taking. We also enjoyed the wood ceilings and gas fireplace. It's a convenient location to many different attractions. Woodland Park is a great town and we fell in love with it.

Clean and Comfortable with a Spectacular View of Pikes Peak

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the early to middle part of June. The house was very clean and comfortable. There was plenty of room for the six people in our family. The house was well stocked with everything we needed including what appeared to be some brand new pots and pans. The location was great. Being on a cul de sac we felt very secluded. We were close enough to town to walk but also had very easy access to highways 24 and 67 so easy to get to all the local attractions we wanted to see. The views of Pikes Peak from the back of the house were amazing.

The owner, Corey, was very quick to respond to our inquiries both before and during our stay. As we had not stayed in a vacation rental before we had alot of questions. He was very helpful in answering questions about the house, process, and things to do in the area. It was very positive for our first experience. We will definitely do a vacation rental again and would stay here again for sure if we vacation in the area. Would definitely recommend to our family and friends.

Nice quiet get away but close to what you wanted to do.

  • 4 of 5

The place was big enough to give all six of us space without being too big. The view from the hillside was splendid. Proximity to the basics was easy. Woodland park had a slower pace and wasn't overrun with tourists. Loved the location!

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all. My family and I stayed for a week and couldn't have been more pleased. There is an amazing view of Pikes Peak from the house and it is tucked away on the other side of a mountain so although you are right outside of town, it very much feels like you are in a secluded area. The house is located close to the main highway leading in and out of Woodland Park, but we were never bothered with the traffic. I thought it was a bonus being that close to the highway, you are still within walking distance of Woodland Park and could easily access the highway if needed! With that being said, there is a lot to do in the Woodland Park area as well as the surrounding areas: Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, trails for hiking, fly fishing, and lots more! The weather was perfect while we were there. If it ever got too warm in the house, all we had to do was open the front and back screen doors to allow air flow in the house and it was cool within no time. Overall we had an amazing stay in this beautiful home! I would recommended this house to anyone!
