3 Bed 2 Bath Ranch-style Home, Family Mountain Getaway with Peak and Forest View
About Carrie Braatz
We love Colorado and everyone that visits us seems to feel the same. The only time we ever leave is for some great sailing and scuba trips which are our passions. We have two crazy dogs named Dagny and Mick who goes everywhere with us...Dagny is 4yrs and her brother Mick is 11yrs - Mick thinks he's in charge and Dagny usually does what she is told! I have a home staging business so I am always fixing up the homes which I love to make cozy and inviting so you will stay forever! My husband supports my craziness and is an eMarketing and eLearning specialist.
Carrie Braatz purchased this House in 2004
Why Carrie Braatz chose Woodland Park
3 Things People really LOVE about this Property: 1. Uber Clean! 2. Full use of entire house with 2-Car Garage (completely open and free of ‘stuff’) 3. 1st Night's Meal & 1st Morning Breakfast 2 Things People don't like about this Property: 1. Wood Burning Fireplace 2. The Cool evenings can be a it nippy if you don't bring a jacket This house was our very first home in Woodland Park. The Cul-de-sac is very quite and relaxing. Wildlife is everywhere! Bucks, Deer, Fox, Rabbits... you name it - it's here. Woodland Park is the perfect place to live. You get views of Pikes Peak Mountain, you can walk into town for dinner or coffee, the hiking trails are just out your doorstep, yet it is a casual, fun and relaxing place unlike any other. We also love the new Memorial Park, just about one mile from the house, great for a picnic or to enjoy one of the many Festivals scheduled throughout the year. The convenience of this home is second to none. You'll love spending time on the back stone-porch and front porch to enjoy the lovely views and fresh Mountain air. Comes complete with internet, cable, 2 TV's and so much more.

The house was great! Everything was as it was on web site. No surprises, very happy
Nice, cosy, good location
Stayed with my family for nearly two weeks in august 2017 and had a wonderfull time. The house is really nice with spacious rooms and nice and cosy decorating. The house has new badrooms and a beautiful kitchen with everything you need in it. The hottub in the backyard was really awesome. Also the location in a quiet neighbourhood of Woodland Park with a beautiful view on Pikes Peak was super. We'll be back !
Great Location near everything
Beautiful place to stay if you want to stay in the mountains instead of in the city. Close to several of the best attractions. There are several eateries and shops in the area. Above the Clouds ATV rentals in Divide, 15 min away, was a must do. It was one of the best vacations our family has ever taken!

Woodland Park home was perfect
This was our first experience with booking through home away and we had a great experience. The owner was wonderful to work with providing excellent information and the home was well set up with necessary supplies as well as a items to make a meal upon our arrival. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The house was perfect for my family. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for an opportunity to get away to Woodland Park.

Woodland Park, CO is just 20 minutes from Colorado Springs, 75 minutes to Breckenridge, and 90 minutes to Denver. Nestled in the Forest and between the mountains it is the best kept secret in Southern Colorado.
The home is located just outside the town, one mile. Perfectly positioned in a friendly-neighborhood at the end of the street on a open, flat and partially wooded lot with views of the snow-capped 14,000ft high Pike Peak Mountain. Its an ideal Colorado home getaway.
From the home itself you can walk and hike or just sit an enjoy coffee or a glass of wine from the front or back decks.
Once in town you can go golfing, stop to sample some local brew at Bierwerks or Paradox brewery or visit the popular Dinosaur Museum. It is great for the kiddos!
Since you are so close to everything (but feel so far away), you can be in Manitou Springs in just 20 minutes where you will enjoy all the quirkiness Manitou has to offer, without the hectic crowd when you return to Woodland Park.
As you go East, down the pass, you will find Cave of the Winds and the Cliff Dwellings, both amazing sites to see.
And you can also take your family to the North Pole as well....Santa is usually home!
Colorado Springs is just a few more minutes where you can enjoy the only zoo in the world built into the side of the mountain. Be sure to stop by the Giraffe, Mountain Lion and Elephant exhibits...they are some of the best you will ever experience.
And while you are in the area of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, be sure to visit the 5 star Broadmoor HIstoric Hotel. You can enjoy the views, have a wonderful bite to eat, go bowling or just take a stroll around the lake. The historic theater at The Broadmoor is not to be missed!
Should you decide to head in the other direction, Breckenridge is only 75 minutes away. Many of our guests choose to stay in the quiet and beautiful town of Woodland Park and day trip to Breckenridge to ski. What they save in lodging pays for their skiing! You will love 'Breck!' Great town, great skiing and great fun. While you are there be sure to stop by the authentic French bakery and have a croissant for me.
So as you can see Woodland Park is the perfect place. Centrally located so you can see all the sites but you can come back to your own private Colorado Mountain retreat.
And while we describe this home as 'rustic' don't be fooled. It has all new windows, floors, carpet, a new kitchen, a front deck and fenced stone-paved patio area area in the rear.
