Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
The village of Green Mountain Falls, is one of Colorado’s premier family vacation spots. Trout fishing, mountain climbing, hiking, shopping or dining, swimming, horseback riding or just relaxing with the wild life is the essence of a great family vacation. The hospitality of this village is second to none.
Our cabin, located at 10875 Belvidere, has been in our family for many years – mostly used as a 2nd home – a summer get-a-way. It is located on the lower road (Belvidere) and is tucked away between Belvidere and Kansas Ave. To reach the carport, you actually drive up Kansas Avenue and you will arrive just above the front door of the Cabin. This house is adjacent to our private family home at 10885 Belvidere. Just outside the front door, you will discover a wonderful playground for children. This home was one of the original cabins of Green Mountain Falls….probably built in the 1920’s or earlier. It has been completely refurbished and even air conditioned. There is a small wood burning fireplace in the living room and a memory foam pull-out sofa bed. The Master Bedroom is equipped with a King size bed and also has a wonderful massage table…for in house massage service. Outside is an oversized deck that overlooks the valley below. Wildlife is abundant and several hiking trails are close to the house. For entertainment, there is one flat screen television with DVD and Cable, as well as various games, movies, puzzles and books. You will enjoy a small fishing lake with a gazebo located right in the middle of the downtown area, among the shops, great restaurants and cafes. It is close to Woodland Park, Colorado Springs, and Pikes Peak. There are a multitude of activities all around the Green Mountain Falls area. The town is known for the beautiful Falls – which is a short hike to the first set of Falls, or you can do a longer hike to the second set of Falls. There is a lovely public outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts just around the corner from the small lake located in the center of the village.
This cabin is ideally suited for a group of 4-6 people. The beds sleep 4 and there is adequate floor space for a couple of twin air mattresses. The cabin is well suited for small birthday parties, business retreats, weddings, wedding anniversaries, honeymoons, Air Force graduations, or any other special occasion. You can enjoy the cooler climate at an elevation of 8,700 ft. surrounded by aspens, pines and interesting wildlife. You will be just minutes away from all of the Pikes Peak region attractions such as Garden of the Gods, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Seven Falls, and the famous Flying W Ranch. The Royal Gorge and river rafting are only an hour drive and the historic mining town of Cripple Creek is only 35 miles away. There are bountiful activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding, antique shopping, museums, and fine arts. We know you will enjoy your visit to this beautiful mountain village.

Excellent location, thoughtfully furnished, among the woods, quiet and comfortable
We do love travel and enjoy outdoors a lot. Many times, we luck upon some places that offer many of our preferences for a stay away from home. Occasionally, we come across log cabins like Borelli #2, where we want to stay for a long time and come back again.
This log cabin is set amidst wooded region east of Colorado Springs where the neighborhood is quiet, properties are sufficiently separated from each other, with large enough yard, play area and proximity to a couple of trails too.
Places like Pikes peak, Manitou Springs, Garden of the Gods are easy to access from this place. The cabin itself is loaded with furniture and kitchen that you will be left wanting for nothing more. Quite comfortable for a family of four, it has a fully adjustable bed (reclines in different ways) which can be adjusted per half and a comfortable futon. Kitchen is loaded with cutlery, has refrigerator, range, oven, microwave, dishes and even some spices. We were able to get some groceries from a town which is about 15 minutes drive from this place and we cooked our meals to have a family dine out on the deck which is furnished well with table, chairs, lounge (hanging) chairs. After visiting the touristy places in the CO springs area, we came back and relaxed on the deck while kids played in the play area in the large yard. We even saw deer almost every evening grazing in the hillside right by the yard .
There was a propane grill which we didn't use, but for those who want to BBQ, not a bad idea. We played tag with the kids in the large yard.
Only improvements I can suggest are -
1. Provide wood for the fireplace in the living room and some fire tools to handle wood on fire / ash
2. Although the place was thoughfully provided with dimmer to the lights, some of these didn't work. Perhaps a bit of maintenance there would help.
3. Some way for renters to get quick answers from the owner/property manager, although I got a message back in about an hour during a weekend.
If we plan another trip to CO springs, we are sure to come back to this place and stay.
Relaxing Mountain Cottage get-a-way
We enjoyed our stay in Green Mountain Falls. The cottage was perfect for our needs and lived up to our expectations. The swing on the deck was put to good use. The peace and quiet was so refreshing. We enjoyed how close the trails were to the cabin (starting at the end of the road). The cabin was clean and neat and had everything we needed for a week end trip. We would love to stay longer in the future.
Thank you for your nice review! Although we own all 3 cabins in this are.. #2 is our favorite! I could sit on that Devk in the swings for 24 hours non stop; and just relax and enjoy the great great climate and view! We hope you will come back and stay longer next trip! Blessings to you and your Family!
Nice location and town....no WIFI made it tough :(
Loved the cabin and the location! Was disappointed that the WIFI never worked there and we had tons of trouble with the television and getting it to work properly. They did send a gentleman out to help us in a timely manner and he was able to get the TV working eventually, but was unsure how he did it. With 2 small children, it made it extremely tough during the nights. We also don't mind not using the computer while on vacation, but desperately needed it to look up locations and things to do in the area. The cabin goes off of a neighbors router and if that cabin is booked, it is literally slower than dial-up or didn't work at all. We had to drive to CO Springs to get our phones to work too.
All in all, nice and quaint location! The play set attached to the grounds is amazing and everything seems to be pretty close!
Cozy cabin in beautiful, peaceful surroundings; perfect for a couple
We spent ten days in this nice little cabin in Green Mountain Falls in October. It was our first vacation in Colorado and we loved everything about it! The cabin is very cozy and has everything you need for a pleasant vacation. We loved the deck (unfortunately, it faces to the north, so you don't get too much sunshine - which is nice in summer, but not in October! ;-) and the Hollywood swing. The cabin is nicely furnished (loved the leather recliner chair!!) and is perfect for a couple. Although it sleeps theoretically up to 6 people, we would not recommend it for more than 2 adults and 2 childs max. We could have used a little more dishes and glasses, but that is not a big deal. The mattress in the master bed room is super comfortable and so is the sofa in the living room. We especially liked the fact that the cabin was well equipped with things like toilet paper, hand soap, detergents and even spices, sugar, alu foil etc. It really helps if you do not have to buy all these things at the start of your vacation. - The surroundings of Borelli no. 2 are really nice. It is perfectly quiet and lets you wind down totally from stressful everyday life. Green Mountain Falls is a nice little town, and there is a lot to do and see in the area. We went up to Pikes Peak, visited the Garden of the Gods, Mueller State Park, Florissant Fossil Beds, and also took a trip to the Royal Gorge bridge, all of which is relatively close to GMF. We would definitely recommend this cabin to friends and would also consider coming back for another great Colorado vacation! After we left, our deposit was refunded promptly within 10 days, so there is really nothing to complain about!
A Little Piece of Heaven!
I have been summering in Green Mtn. Falls for 62 years at our family place and then at various rentals in the area. This year was my first to spend 2 weeks by myself and it was heavenly. Had other family staying in GMF and we spent many mornings and evenings on the wonderful porch, watching the grandchildren play on the swings, slide and fort. The cabin was perfect and I felt very safe there...just wish there were some cell phone reception so I could have talked with my husband back home! The handyman showed up while I was there and said he really needed to make some repairs on the outside railings around the stairways, so I expect he will do so before my next visit. Yes, I hope to return, it couldn't have been a nicer place to relax and be with family.
What a great little cabin. It provided a perfect setting to get away without kids for a few days. It is within walking distance of the lake and restaurants. The cabin has a great deck to enjoy the Colorado weather! The property manager is awesome! She worked very hard to make sure the cabin was ready with very little notice. We will be back!
