About Nan Stephens

We bought this wonderful home in 2003. It had been used as a vacation rental since it was built in 1998. We just loved it so much, we couldn't move out! We think you will love it too!

Good central location. Nice view and deck.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is nice, main necessities stocked, washer and dryer a huge bonus and the deck was beautiful. We Stayed 8 nights and the beds could have been better and some of the extra blankets were not clean. The reason this gets three stars is there is only ONE parking spot. Photos show adequate parking and then when you get there, one spot says Buffalo Sunrise and the other two have no parking signs. If you have visitors you have to bus them to and from The Pantry in town so they can visit. The tenant downstairs played music every night we could hear and there was also a fence being built downstairs for her dogs until dark. I was hoping for peaceful mountain views. People were coming and going most of the day/evening. You can also hear the bars music every night from the deck and also traffic. The owners were responsive to picking up trash when text.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah, Thank you for visiting us at Buffalo Sunrise Lodge. I am sorry your visit wasn't perfect. I was out of town while you were visiting, and was not aware of disturbing music or traffic. That will be addressed immediately. We have been offering vacation accommodations since 2011, and have had happy guests all that time. The parking space provided can be used by two vehicles, parked tandem or one space next to the house for a compact car and then a large space closest to the front porch for guests. Most properties in Green Mountain Falls do not even have off street parking, so we feel blessed that we can offer the space that we have. We are a two bedroom lodge, not designed for larger groups that have multiple vehicles, and parking has not been an issue. Thank you again for your visit and for your honest information so that we can make the lodge the best it can be. Thanks again, Nan

Serene and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife, and two friends rented the lodge for our first visit to Colorado. The lodge was conveniently located in Green mountain falls, which was a short drive to all of the attractions we wanted to see. The owner Nan was a sweetheart and great to deal with. We had an issue starting the gas fireplace and it was taken care within a half hour of calling her. She was very responsive with any questions I had before I booked the trip as well. The scenery, overlooking the mountains, was great from the balcony. We ate breakfast at the Pantry across from the lodge, had great food, served up with a smile. I would highly recommend staying at the lodge for its scenery, location, and serenity.

I loved the property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing and the location is perfect! Being right outside of Colorado Springs gave you the feel of being secluded but you were also close to a lot of popular attractions. The owners are very attentive and helpful. The men who live in the apartments underneath were great as well. I would definitely recommend this property and would go back myself!

This was the perfect place for our family vacation. We had 4 adults, 2 kids and an infant. Very welcoming and friendly. Perfect spot to attractions. Great view and nice quaint area to pond, The Pantry, and walking trails. I would highly recommend. We hope to return soon!
