Why Lauren chose Green Mountain Falls

My home in Green Mountain Falls represents a dream come true. As a young girl I would spend some of each summer in the 50s and early 60s at my grandmother’s Hummingbird Hill cabin at the end of Belvidere. Although the horse stables are gone, pretty much everything else about GMFs has stayed the same which makes it a unique and treasured place.

I will probably slowly transform some of the colors of my “Hacienda”, which were chosen by the previous owner, but if you like the current décor, please let us know!

What makes this cabin unique

With such a wonderful kitchen, you can stretch your vacation dollars by creating great meals at home. My cabin is close, but not too close, to the center of GMF where you can enjoy the lake, local shops and restaurants. It also provides easy access to wonderful hiking trails. And there are have plenty of humming birds, woodpeckers, foxes and even the occasional bear to keep you entertained if you just want to stay at home, soak up the mountain atmosphere, and enjoy the patio and deck.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Colorado. The cabin was very nice, and you thought of just about anything we might need, and stocked it! I needed several band aids for blisters, and was able to use some you had In your medicine cabinet, until I could get to Walmart for my own and to replenish your stock!



Thanks for everything!

Wonderful location and trip

  • 5 of 5

The Green Mountain Falls home was exactly what we wanted. A nice home in the mountains along with wonderful wildlife all around. Two deer were there to greet my husband and I as we arrived.

The place was well stocked and clean. We got everything we expected and more. I recommend this place to all.

We saw Garden of the gods! There is alot of activities for all around here. Check it out! Rebecca Vermeer

Great house for our family of 6!

  • 5 of 5

The Mountain Hacienda was a perfect spot to wrap up our Colorado vacation. It was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed. We visited Garden of the Gods on our way up, then drove to Noah's Ark Whitewater Rafting near Buena Vista the next day (highly recommend if rafting - 1.5 hour scenic drive away). Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer to explore around Green Mountain Falls area, but it will be at the top of our list the next time we come.

Owner's Response: We love that this could be your home away from home on the final leg of your Colorado journey. It's a great base camp as your explore the area, even the slightly farther area in Buena Vista. Lovely area. We'll look forward to your next stay when you get a chance to explore Green Mountain Falls and some of the local "bests." Thank you for staying with us! --Lauren & Red Door Vacation Rentals

What a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The purpose of our visit to this wonderful part of the country was our son's graduation from Colorado College in Colorado Springs. We did not want to stay in the city; we wanted to enjoy the mountains. What a wonderful house! It was well-stocked, comfortable, and clean. When I emailed the manager about some items getting low and an outlet not working, there was an immediate response! We enjoyed playing tourist in GMF and Woodland Park and it was nice to be able to hike in the immediate vicinity without having to drive anywhere. Would we stay here again? As a matter of fact, this was our second stay at this home. And we would do it again.

Owner's Response: Congratulations to your son, what a great accomplishment to celebrate! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. We love this home, and we always hope our guests do too! We’re so sorry that outlet wasn’t working for you. But thank you so much for letting us know. Our guests are often our eyes and ears in our homes! You all let us know what’s good and what isn’t, and when there are people staying and really using everything in the home, you can find things we don’t! So we always appreciate it when guests report problems or kinks in the system! We’d love to see your family here again! Enjoy the rest of your summer. Thank you, Lauren & Red Door Vacation Rentals
