Woodland Park Retreat


Testimonials

“We recently enjoyed the use of your home for our family vacation. Everyone's eyes just opened wide as they went inside and you could hear a collective "WOW" as they walked around and saw everything that was there. It was much more than we had anticipated. It is rare that things are better than advertised, or even just as good as advertised, but in this case it was everything and more. The kitchen was fully supplied with utensils and dishes, the upkeep was fantastic with everything recently stained, even the towels were better than any motel you could stay at. We had our three grown children and their families with us and there was room for everyone to spread out and not be on top of each other. And finally, you even had sleds to use. How thoughtful was that! Our damage deposit was returned within 7 days with no hassle at all. We'll be telling everyone we know about your home for vacation. Thank you for everything. We'll be back!!!”

“The accommodations were first class and the scenery was spectacular. The location was perfect - not too far fram town but it seemed like you were way up in the mountains - great for our two grown sons who love to fly fish - every morning they fished the South Platte River near Deckers (only about 15 minutes from the retreat). Our 4 year old grandson thought it was really cool being in the mountains and going on an "adventure". All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we'll definitely be back.”

“First of all, I just wanted to thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. We had a wonderful stay and experienced Colorado and the mountains like never before. The snow fell and blanketed the area with a white layer of beauty and majesty. We have been to Colorado many times, but have never gotten to see it with snow (except on the mountain tops of course) – so it was a dream come true. Our family enjoyed meals together without the hustle and bustle of a restaurant. We hiked and explored during the day and came in for wonderful family evenings together. We enjoyed football on the flat screen TV and just had a wonderful time of rest and refreshing. We also enjoyed meeting Charlie and Susan – they are wonderful, sweet people. You are very blessed to have them as caretakers.”

“We wanted a place that would house my whole family for a few days get-away. I have three kids, each with spouses and children. And this home in the mountains/forrest was perfect. We all had room to spread out and do what we wanted. We had a puzzle going downstairs, with movies going for the kids when they wanted to watch TV. Leaving the Plasma on the main floor for us to watch what we wanted. We had games going most of the time, and some read or did their own thing. There was snow enough for the kids to sled and they enjoyed the playhouse in the back. The hot tub was nice for those that wanted a dip. There were plenty of beds for everyone. It was just a really nice experience to get away and have everything we needed in one home. We definately will use your services again as we do this every year. Thanks for making our stay so wonderful and enjoyable.”

“We had a fantastic Thanksgiving here ! Beautiful and tranquil, with a couple of inches of snow - plenty for fun, but not so much as to be inconvenient.”

“Our family stayed in Mid-October, 2007 and found the retreat a most inspiring experience. On our first night, we had a small snow shower, which looked incredibly beautiful on the trees, etc. The jacuzzi on the deck was a family favorite; nice and hot, with picturesque views. The house was incredible, especially the kitchen, with all its wares. We fixed some very appetizing meals while at the retreat. My children just loved the loft and the playroom downstairs. All in all, our time at the retreat was more than we could have imagined and we can't wait to come back.”

“We stayed here in March a few days after a snow fall. The kids loved playing in the snow that was still out back and took advantage of the sled left there to use. The weather was in the mid 60's and beautiful. The pictures online do not do the house justice as it is much prettier in person. The gourmet kitchen really has everything you could possibly need and the bedrooms are very comfortable and stylishly done, bathrooms too. We almost wished we'd had more family with us to take advantage of how big the house is! The home is very clean and looks like it has been recently redecorated/remodeled. The location is excellent! Very close to Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, Pikes Peak and the North Pole. We did it all! They even have a cool Dinosaur museum in town that the kids loved. Oh yeah, speaking of kids, the little playhouse out back was a real treat. My daughter played house all afternoon one time - she was the mom and I was the kid - hee hee. We used the very nice BBQ grill provided to cook steaks and burgers one night and had a blast. The deer that passed by every morning and evening were a thrill to see. Oh yeah - the sunsets are AMAZING! The whole back of the house on the main level is windows and faces Pikes Peak - too cool. Not only would I stay here again but I have written all my friends to let them know that I found a vacation home I can truly recommend. Go check it out but save some dates for me to return.”

“This is a tremendous place to stay! There is peace, quiet, and tons to do. Roberta has guidebooks galore so it's simple to explore the area. It's pretty close to Mueller State Park, and other great scenic hiking. The retreat itself is spectacular. Very clean and sunny, it has just about anything you could want, including mountain views, sunsets, Scrabble and other games, a kitchen full of spices and plentiful cookware, and a fantastic collection of books. The deck is a relaxing place to be... sipping morning coffee, or having a sunset dinner near the BBQ. The hot tub on the lower deck was perfectly relaxing as well. While there, we saw deer, fox and many birds. It was so quiet in the evening that you could hear the birds whooshing as they flew just overhead (the upper deck is about even with many tree tops). There are even some sleds for fun on snowy days. Lastly, the caretakers do a great job. They are available if you need them, but otherwise give you your privacy. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation and hope to return!”

“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Woodland Park Retreat. It is very clean and comfortable. There are three full baths in the retreat and they are beautifully decorated. There are more than enough towels and blankets provided. The kitchen is well-equipped for making meals in the home, including spices and utensils, bowls and pans. The kitchen appliances are top of the line. There is an espresso maker, too! The hot tub was a good way to soothe muscles after hiking and sledding all day. You won't believe how many stars there are at night. The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center is just 20 minutes away, in Woodland Park and was great fun for a little boy and his father. Mom liked the gift shop. Three of the beds are in a loft over the living room, which was not an issue for us, but might be if not everyone in your group goes to bed at the same time.”
