              Other Amenities

                  • The Diamond Bar is a 'screen free' mountain cabin nestled in one of America's most charming towns. It has all the important amenities, but there is no television set, entertainment center, or video game console. This is not an oversight, but a deliberate choice on the part of the owners. When people come to the mountains for vacation and they don't watch TV, they do other, more enjoyable things as a family. They read books, play board game (provided), cook meals together, fish, hike the local trails, even talk to one another! There are a million fun things to do in the Pike's Peak region, but if you stay at the Diamond Bar, watching television in the cabin won't be one of them. Of course, if there is a big game, you can always catch it at the local bar, where they have a big screen, and serve great pizza and wings!...moreless

                      Location

                      Green Mountain Falls has all the charm of a small town, but is 20 minutes from Colorado Springs and 10 minutes from Woodland Park, with fine dining, and a great Dinosaur Museum. This is the perfect spot for a family vacation.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1948

                      About the owner: Robin and Shawn Meyers live in Oklahoma City. Dr. Meyers is a minister, professor and author. His wife Shawn is an artist and a member of the art faculty at the University of Central Oklahoma. Robin and Shawn honeymooned in Green Mountain Falls in 1976, and have vacationed here with their children for 36 years. The Diamond Bar was originally purchased by Shawn's grandmother in the 1940's. They have come to love this place as one of the most peaceful and restorative places on earth. Now they invite you to bring your family and discover what make this such a special place.

                      Why the Owner Chose Green Mountain Falls:
                      Green Mountain Falls is the town that time forgot. It has a Norman Rockwell quality to it. There are plenty of things to do, but the best thing might be to do nothing at all. Fish, hike, read a book, listen to a mountain stream and the sudden crackle of an afternoon thunderstorm. Life in GMF is beautifully slow. This is as peaceful as it gets.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Green Mountain Falls is becoming an arts community, and every summer hosts the Green Box Arts Festival. There are visiting artists, workshops, a major installation by a well-known artist, cooking classes, and special events for children. Hikers are discovering GMF as a place with dozens of marked and maintained trails, and the fishing is always good in the lake with its signature Victorian gazebo. Summer concerts, weddings, antique car shows, and other activities are numerous, and the Pantry is world famous for breakfast! Green Mountain Falls is uniquely situated to enjoy peace and quiet, but located only ten minutes from Woodland Park, and only 25 minutes from Colorado Springs. The Pike's Peak Region, with all its attractions, is at your door.
