Green Mountain Falls cabin description

Built in 2008, Writer’s Cove offers serenity, peace, and quiet for 1-4 people in the Pine and Aspen forests of Green Mountain Falls, a small mountain community just west of Colorado Springs, near Pikes Peak. Green Mountain Falls was recently featured in Southwest Airline’s Spirit Magazine, and hosts the nationally known Green Box Arts Festival in late June.

Writer’s Cove is completely modern and tastefully decorated. It’s about 930 square feet, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a full kitchen, oak wood floors, new stainless steel appliances, new furnishings, a large desk, washer/dryer, and a full deck with gas grill.

Writer’s Cove has all the modern electronics–digital HDMI television, wired and wireless internet, telephone-even a Yamaha keyboard in the closet.

Featuring floor to vaulted ceiling windows on the south side, and spectacular views all around, sunrises at Writer’s Cove are amazing. With the living area 10 feet above ground, guests have described Writer’s Cove as “a tree house in the woods,” “much like a cottage in the Swiss Alps.”

The entire house has built-in Bose sound–let music and nature inspire and relax you. In dusk’s afterglow, enjoy a quiet glass of wine in front of the gas fireplace, capping a day of renewal, reflection, creativity, or bonding with someone you love.

Leave the windows open for cool, clean Rocky Mountain air – at 7800’ Green Mountain Falls is 10-15 degrees cooler than Colorado Springs. With a modern furnace system, Writer’s Cove is also warm and cozy in the fall and winter–the perfect place to ride out a Colorado winter storm, or finish a tough deadline.

Writer’s Cove is perfect for being creative, being renewed, falling in love, painting, or writing a book. Perfectly located just west of Colorado Springs - with no traffic, noise, or nonsense - Writer’s Cove offers peace, quiet and beauty … inspiring days and starry nights.

                  Car: Necessary

                  The west side of Colorado Springs is just 15 minutes away via Highway 24, right at the south end of Garden of the Gods. Hike at gorgeous Mueller State Park, 25 minutes northwest. Get your creative juices flowing at Manitou Lake or South Catamount Reservoir – both beautiful, both just 25 minutes away. Or find consistently good fishing at Eleven Mile Reservoir and numerous places on the South Platte (including Deckers) – all just one hour away. We provide rods, tackle, and tips!
