About the Property
Large deck, 2 Bedroooms, 2 full baths, large porch, vintage kitchen, anitiques!
If this property is not available to rent, the Meyers family owns an adjacent property, the Diamond Bar (#402626) that is also a vacation rental, sleeps up to six, at the same rate. Or you can rent both cabins for a family reunion.
Hilltop House is accessed by a private drive at the end of Colorado Street away from traffic. It is full of vintage furniture and turn-of-the-century photographs and artifacts. It features a giant front porch with rocking chairs and spectacular views of Rampart Range. While sitting on the new 16x24 deck, renters can not only hear the Crystal Creek stream, but see it as a silver ribbon of water coming down Mt. Ester.
The master bedroom features a new queen size iron bed, and a dressing room with a full bath. The living room has a futon and looks out on towering blue spruce trees. There is a downstairs bedroom area with two full sized beds, and a full bath with shower (perfect for the kids).
But the most remarkable thing about Hilltop House is its historic quality, and one of the most charming, vintage kitchens you will ever cook in (wait til you see the stove back). Hilltop House is so private that it is a favorite spot for wildlife, and you will frequently be surprised by a herd of deer who make it their home, as well as the red-tailed fox, mountain birds, and yes, the occasional black bear.
Hilltop House has plenty of private, off-street parking, and is a short (two block) walk from the charming village center of GMF, which is emerging as a true arts community with an annual summer arts festival (The Green Box). There is a great bar (The Blue Moose), a lovely restaurant (The Mucky Duck), and a coffee/homemade ice cream shop (Duckies). There is a playground for the kids, and a stroll around the lake with the Victorian gazebo completes an evening in the village. There is fishing (state stocked), and frequent outdoor concerts fill the air with music. And yes, this is where you find perhaps the best breakfast place on earth, The Pantry. If you like to hike, you are in paradise, as GMF continues to develop and mark hiking trails for all levels. Hilltop House is situated near several trail heads, and maps are provided.
By design, this property is "screen free." It has no television set or gaming center, but there is free wifi for renters. The owners, Shawn and Robin Meyers, believe that a real family vacation means doing something other than watching TV or playing video games. So we filled Hilltop House with books, board games, and rocking chairs. It this sounds like a real vacation to you, contact us.
Hilltop House is truly one of the most unique properties in Green Mountain Falls, and you have to see it to appreciate how special it is. We hope that you and your family and friends get a chance to vacation here. You will want to come back again and again.

- Hilltop House is unlike any cabin you are likely to stay in. It has to be seen and experienced. It is secluded, charming, and historic. You feel as if you are in a private mountain retreat, full of antiques, at a rate lower than most GMF properties. Up the private drive at the end of the road, there is no traffic, just the constant sound of a mountain street. Yet the village of GMF is just a three block walk away. Breakfast at the Pantry and dinner at numerous area restaurants means you can stay in or go out. This is a pure mountain vacation property that still feels like a cabin with all the modern amenities. The huge deck has the best view of any GMF property. Once you stay here, you will be back....moreless

Green Mountain Falls is a small mountain village on the shoulder of Pike's Peak, private and secluded but within a short drive of Woodland Park (five minutes) and Colorado Springs (25 minutes). Fast becoming an arts community, GMF is the place to go hiking, fish in the pond with a Victorian gazebo, enjoy beautiful mountain views at 8,000 feet, and truly 'vacate.' You can sleep to the sound of a mountain stream and do nothing, or you can visit all the nearby attractions of the Pike's Peak region, which makes GMF the perfect family vacation spot. Ride the Pike's Peak cog railway to the top of America's most famous mountain, or visit a dinosaur museum in nearby Woodland Park. There is truly something here for everyone.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Robin and Shawn Meyers honeymooned in Green Mountain Falls in 1976, and have brought their children (and now their grandchildren) to GMF for 36 years. This is now the fifth generation to treasure life in this very special mountain town. Shawn and Robin live in Oklahoma City, where Robin is a minister (Mayflower UCC) and a professor (Oklahoma City University), and Shawn teaches art at the University of Central Oklahoma. We spend a good part of our summers in GMF, and are available to help renters have the best possible family vacation.
Why the Owner Chose Green Mountain Falls, CO, USA:
Hilltop House belonged to Jack and Ann Heffelfinger for many years, and they spent their summers here until both were in their early 90's. We got to know them as neighbors, and then when they could not longer come to the mountains, the family offered to sell the cabin to us. We are restoring it without changing its essential character. There is no other place quite like it.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Hilltop House is a remnant of another time. Not only is it over a hundred years old, and full of antiques, but is secluded and remote, even in the middle of town. The best feature is perhaps the huge front porch, which will remind you of big front porches in the south, with rocking chairs and gorgeous mountain views. A HUGE walk-out deck has now been added, and must be seen to be believed.
