Hilltop House is a summer-only rental (May-September), and one of the oldest, most secluded, and unspoiled cabins in Green Mountain Falls. Perched on nearly one full acre of property that backs up to the Pike National Forest, it is so 'hidden' that many long time residents in town are not even aware that it exists. Built in 1908, it is full of antiques, and the owners believe it is haunted (you decide). While restoring it, the owners found (and have preserved) newspapers used as insulation that feature an article about the death of silent film star Rudolph Valentino!
Filled with vintage furniture and turn of the century photographs and artifacts, Hilltop House features a huge front porch with spectacular views of Rampart Range and private mountain views 360. The master bedroom has a full bath (with large claw foot tub) and the living room looks out on towering blue spruce trees. There is a full downstairs bunk area with two full sized beds, and a full bath with shower (perfect for the kids).
But the most remarkable thing about Hilltop House is its historic quality, and one of the most charming, vintage kitchens you will ever cook in (wait til you see the stove back). Hilltop House is so private that it is a favorite spot for wildlife, and you will frequently be surprised by a herd of deer who make it their home, as well as the red-tailed fox, mountain birds, and yes, the occasional black bear.
Hilltop House has a private drive at the end of Colorado Street, and plenty of off street parking. It is a short, two block walk from the charming village center of GMF, with fishing, restaurants (including the world famous Pantry for breakfast), and numerous by hiking trail heads. You can do everything here, or you can do nothing here.
By design, this property has no television set, no gaming center, and no internet access (although it is widely available in town and elsewhere). The owners, Shawn and Robin Meyers, believe that a real family vacation means doing something other than watching TV or playing video games. So we filled Hilltop House with books, board games, and rocking chairs. It this sounds like a real vacation to you, contact us.
Hilltop House is truly one of the most unique properties in Green Mountain Falls, and you have to see it to appreciate how special it is. We hope that you and your family and friends get a chance to vacation here. You will want to come back again and again.

Hilltop House is unlike any cabin you are likely to stay in. It has to be seen and experienced. It is charming, it is historic, it is an antique lovers paradise, it is in town but feels remote, it is crawling with wildlife, and yes, it is haunted....moreless

Green Mountain Falls is a small mountain village on the shoulder of Pike's Peak, private and secluded but within a short drive of Woodland Park (five minutes) and Colorado Springs (25 minutes). Fast becoming an arts community, GMF is the place to go hiking, fish in the pond with a Victorian gazebo, enjoy beautiful mountain views at 8,000 feet, and truly 'vacate.' You can sleep to the sound of a mountain stream and do nothing, or you can visit all the nearby attractions of the Pike's Peak region, which makes GMF the perfect family vacation spot. Ride the Pike's Peak cog railway to the top of America's most famous mountain, or visit a dinosaur museum in nearby Woodland Park. There is truly something here for everyone.

About the owner: Robin and Shawn Meyers honeymooned in Green Mountain Falls in 1976, and have brought their children (and now their grandchildren) to GMF for 36 years. This is now the fifth generation to treasure life in this very special mountain town.
Shawn and Robin live in Oklahoma City, where Robin is a minister (Mayflower UCC) and a professor (Oklahoma City University), and Shawn teaches art at the University of Central Oklahoma. We spend a good part of our summers in GMF, and are available to help renters have the best possible family vacation.
Why the Owner Chose Green Mountain Falls: Hilltop House belonged to Jack and Ann Heffelfinger for many years, and they spent their summers here until both were in their early 90's. We got to know them as neighbors, and then when they could not longer come to the mountains, the family offered to sell the cabin to us. We are restoring it without changing its essential character. There is no other place quite like it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Hilltop House is a remnant of another time. Not only is it over a hundred years old, and full of antiques, but is secluded and remote, even in the middle of town. The best feature is perhaps the huge front porch, which will remind you of big front porches in the south, with rocking chairs and gorgeous mountain views. A HUGE walk-out deck has now been added, and must be seen to be believed.
