Welcome to Woodland Park, the City Above the Clouds!
You’re in for an amazing trip in the Pikes Peak region, and with our home on Bowman Avenue, you’ll feel like you belong here. We won’t blame you for planning your next trip before the first one ends!
This home is in a quiet neighborhood on the northwest side of Woodland Park. You’re minutes from the main highway in and around the region, and a short drive from many major attractions with Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods, and Colorado Springs less than a half hour away.
Ready to head home after a day exploring? You’ll have a great time hanging out in the amazing back yard. Let the kids run while you sit out on the patio and relax. Fire up the grill, grab a beer or a glass of wine, and settle in for great nights, great weather and lots of fun stories between friends and family. When you’re ready to go inside for the night, you can kick back in the large living room downstairs or venture up to the main level and relax in the sitting room by the wood burning fireplace.
The home has three bedrooms on the main level. The master has a king bed and plenty of space to stretch out and make yourselves at home as well as a private access to the full bathroom on this level. The second bedroom has a full bed, and the third bedroom has bunk beds with a twin on top and full on the bottom.
Downstairs is full of natural light with windows and a sliding door to the back yard. The downstairs bedroom has a queen bed and lots of space, giving you a second master suite to enjoy. There is a full bathroom and a full sized laundry room on this level as well. The home has a total sleeping capacity of 9 (with room for more on the couches).
In the morning, gather at the large dining table and make up a big breakfast. The kitchen has it all, so bring the groceries and bring the family together with a great meal and plan out the next day’s adventure.

My name is Lauren, and I am part of the management team for Red Door Vacation Rentals! I'm a work-from-home mommy with two little ones and two puppies who I consider my furry babies and a husband who is my big baby too! I love being able to get out and hike with my family and the dogs when I have free time (I know, what's "free time"?) and there's no better place than the Pikes Peak region to get outside and explore. The owners of Red Door took me on, and it has been such an amazing experience to work with such soulful people, doing such a fun job. Who doesn't like planning a vacation, right? And I get to help with that. Check out the message from our owners below to get to know us more. And please let me know how I can help you enjoy your upcoming trip to Colorado!
Our Mission Statement:
Our mission is to create a truly unique lodging experience for each and every guest. We have a vast variety of homes to choose from. All of which have their own special qualities. We strive to create wonderful memories and friendships for every guest.
We are a strong Christian family devoted to serving the Lord and others. We all have strong family values and have always cherished our family and friends. We love to travel, play and work together.
A few years ago we decided to take on a new adventure and bought a cabin together. We had every intention of fixing it up and selling it. We built so many memories during the remodel process that when it was all finished we couldn’t bear to sell it.
We ended up keeping it as a family cabin. A few years later we bought an old Victorian and the same thing happened. We put our hearts and souls into it, then added our heirloom antiques and the house came back to life.
Once again, we couldn’t part with our lovely Victorian. That is when we realized the Lord was calling on us to share our wonderful blessings with others. Our vacation homes continue to blossom year after year. We have also expanded into a full management company for other vacation homes.
We have truly been blessed with wonderful families, friends and the opportunity to share our blessings with others. We look forward to creating many more wonderful memories for our families, friends and yours.
John, Kim, Lester & Kelly
