About the Property
2BR / 1BA Sleeps 6 Creekside With Mountain Views
Fountain Creek Cottage has a rustic feel with modern amenities. A full washer and dryer makes quick work of those clothes dirtied in pursuit of the Colorado outdoor lifestyle. The kitchen is fully functional with a full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher and oven/stove top. Brew a pot of coffee in the provided coffeemaker and enjoy a hot cup on the back porch listening to the creek and watching the sun rise over the mountains. Tucked into a shallow valley among a handful of mountain cabins, Fountain Creek Cottage gives the impression of an isolated mountain retreat while within walking distance of The Pantry Restaurant and their homemade cinnamon raisin bread. After a full breakfast head out on foot to one of two hiking trails: Heizer Trail and Catamount Trail.
Summer is an exciting time to vacation along Ute Pass. Local mountain towns host festivals such as Territory Days, Donkey Derby Days and Green Mountain Falls Bronc Days. Step back in time and explore the rich history of the area with tours of Cave of the Winds, Manitou Springs, and gold rush boom town Cripple Creek.
Winter months are a perfect time to visit too! After a day of snowmobiling or snowshoeing in the surrounding mountains or ice skating on the nearby pond curl up in front of a cozy fire and read a good book or catch up on your favorite show on the flat screen TV (cable provided).
The cabin features two bedrooms, each containing a queen sized bed with new mattresses and new bedding. Since both are on the back of the dwelling, opening the windows at night brings in cool mountain breezes and the gentle sound of water splashing over rocks in the creek. You'll be pulling for the blanket before morning, even in summer.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Green Mountain Falls is approximately 10 miles up highway 24 from Colorado Springs.
Many of Colorado’s most desirable attractions are nearby. The Pike’s Peak highway is just over a mile from our cabin. The Cave of the Winds, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the North Pole (a favorite with our grandkids and FREE if you’re over 60), Garden of the Gods and of course shopping in Manitou and a visit to the Air Force Academy. Don’t miss Seven Falls or a drive up North Cheyenne Canyon to Helen Hunt Falls. Hiking trails abound and then, of course, there’s the option of just sitting on the patio and enjoying the sun while listening to the creek.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: After 40 years in ministry my wife and I recently retired to Green Mountain Falls, Colorado. We sit on our deck and watch our five grandchildren frolic in the cool mountain stream I once played in as a child.
Why the Owner Chose Cascade-Chipita Park, CO, USA:
It is tough to find a more tranquil and beautiful place to vacation with your family. To us it has always been the perfect spot to take a break, put our feet up and reconnect with our family.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Five generations of my family have vacationed on Fountain Creek. I can't remember not loving it. The cool mountain breezes and the scent of pine call to mind cherished family memories.
