Gorgeous 2 BR, 1 Bath with Mountain Views, Nearby Hiking, and tons of amenities
I am a mom of two college students and I am an Occupational Therapist. My gifts are creating comfortable and inviting spaces indoors and out. I also love hiking with my two dogs, gardening, baking, and visiting National Parks and seeing family at my Chicago roots. I am a 28 year resident of this wonderful mountain town.
Lisa purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Lisa chose Green Mountain Falls
Last year we purchased the cabin from our adopted Parents/Grandparents/Neighbors, after they could no longer come to the mountains to escape the Kansas heat and enjoy the mountains. The cabin was sentimental to both my two children and myself, and we couldn't bear to see anyone else own the cabin. So we decided to renovate it and host guests in the cabin. We hope we have made Gary and Phyl proud, and are as welcoming to you in this cabin as they were to us all those 28 years.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Cabin has always been really charming on the outside. The deck with it's expansive mountain views is so relaxing. The covered patio off the kitchen with rock table and views of the garden is very intimate. The locals are kind and friendly, and I love my neighbors! After we bought it from Gary and Phyl, we sought to make the inside as great as the outside. A local craftsman, Dale White, did an amazing transformation, using beetle kill pine (blue stain) on the ceilings and built-ins. The home is only 750 square feet, but it feels much larger with the vaulted ceilings, open floor plan, and various built-ins. The cabinets are quarter sawn oak, and the kitchen table base is from an old boiler. The bathroom vanity is made from ancient bristlecone pine, with a soapstone sink/counter. Local artist Doyle Svenby's metal work is on the kitchen wall and his metal art sculpture is out back. I've really enjoyed creating the gardens. It's my therapy. Martha Wheeler, has her pencil drawings displayed. And Dana Keys has a beautiful stained glass window in one of the bedroom doors. I feel like the cabin itself is art, and I love being in it. I hope you will too.

Great location and perfect cabin to stay
We had a great time and Lisa was amazing with her kind and sweet nature. Cabin is a perfect getaway for us and it was beautiful...
We stayed in the cabin in the pines in Green Mountain Falls in August 2019 and had a wonderful time. The cabin and the village was love at first sight for us. The cabin is beautifully renovated and in immaculate condition. Such a special place. Lisa is extremely helpful and makes you feel so welcome. We highly recommend this to anyone looking for accommodation in the Pikes Peak area and can only hope we get to come back some day.
PICK THIS OVER EVERYTHING ELSE!
Soooo fabulous. All the extras and every detail included. Sets the bar for a VBRO experience, and a picture perfect true mountain village experience!
Serenity in the pines
Lovely cabin, exceptional clean, very well appointed,beautifully updated while maintaining character of the cabin and surrounding area.Lisa is wonderful host with a great eye for details.Lisa makes the best apple pie I have ever tasted.Great area for exploring pikes peak and Garden of the gods. Quaint town with a few restaurants and nice lake to walk around. Good hiking trails from the cabin. Would recommend horse back riding in the garden of gods. WE definitely recommend the cabin in the pines.
Great place, everything we needed and more
Very good, hope to stay there again
This cabin and it's view of the mountains is amazing. Lisa had everything we could possibly need and was super nice! The kids had a blast playing with all the toys and reading the books she provided. The cabin is so close to many of the fun things to do around Colorado Springs. We even hiked up several of the trails out of the neighborhood. The kids are already asking to go back and see Miss Lisa again. Thanks for making our Mountain Vaction so enjoyable.
Green Mountain Falls is becoming more and more of an art community, with the support of The Green Box Festival, held here each summer for a week in late June/early July. The festival has world class dancers, musicians, and the work of incredibly talented artists. Art installations from Green Box are scattered around town year round.
Terrific mountain hikes are nearby. In fact the Dewey Mountain trail is just blocks away, and Green Mountain Falls' Thomas and Catamount trails are also very close. Green Mountain Falls has a swimming pool that is just down the hill from the cabin. There are several restaurants in GMF to enjoy. My out-of-town family and I go to The Pantry for their homemade cinnamon toast or to The Mucky Duck, when I don't feel like cooking!
A bit further away is Cascade with the start of the Pikes Peak Highway and Wines of Colorado (8 minutes). In Manitou Springs (15 minutes) catch the Cog Railway to go up Pikes Peak or enjoy shopping and tasty restaurants. Other destinations: Old Colorado City (15 minutes), The Broadmoor (30 minutes), and the Air Force Academy is 40 minutes away. Enjoy fishing opportunities at our own Green Mountain Falls Lake, or for the ambitious fisherman; Rampart Range Reservoir or Eleven Mile Canyon are about a half hour away. Enjoy our local tourism with a quiet, beautiful home base in the mountains!
