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!

Why Nan Stephens chose Green Mountain Falls

This home boasts great panoramic views and seclusion and is still centrally located in the Pikes Peak area. You can get away from it all and still have easy access to just about everything anyone would want. The great outdoors with Colorado mountains, a lake, and abundant wildlife are right out the door!

Major tourist must sees like Pikes Peak, The North Pole, The Cliff Dwellings, Cave of the Winds, The Dinosaur Museum, The Cog Railroad, Iron Springs Chateau Theatre and more are within 5 to 20 minutes away. The town of Woodland Park is just 3 miles west on Highway 24, supplying a Walmart, 2 major grocery stores, hospital, theatre, golf course, recreation center, restaurants and churches. Historic Cripple Creek with it's gold mines, museums and lively casinos is about 45 minutes away. We are only about 15 miles from Colorado Springs with airport, hospitals, malls, golf courses, museums, churches, theatres, and abundant nightlife. This home is 2 hours or less from major ski areas, hot springs, The Royal Gorge, narrow gauge railroad treks, Denver Aquarium, Coors Field, Invesco Stadium, Elitch Gardens, and many more.

A lovely home in a great little town!

Nan's home is warm and welcoming, the beds are comfortable, and the linens soft and plentiful. We truly felt "at home" away from home!

I’m not even sure where to start. Amazing property, amazing owners, amazing EVERYTHING! There’s not one flaw I could possibly think of. Nan was a GREAT host, very responsive, and very helpful. The view was amazing, and the neighbors downstairs were so kind. Did not have a single problem with anything, everything was perfect. My friends and I came up from Florida and enjoyed every moment we stayed at the property. We hope to visit Colorado again, and when we do we’ll most 100% book this property again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOOKING HERE!!

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind remarks! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. I hope you can visit again in the future, when I can meet you personally, since I was out of town during your visit. Blessings to you and your family! Thanks again, Nan
