Location: Fifteen miles west of Colorado Springs and 5 miles east of Woodland Park off Highway 24 in Green Mountain Falls,
Colorado (map). Nestled between two other summer cabins on an unpaved road.
Phone Service: There is normally a strong enough cell signal for all cell phone service providers at the cabin. The cabin has
free Wi-Fi. We do not provide land line phone service at the cabin.
Linens: The rates include bed, bathroom and kitchen linens. Four through six sets of towels will be provided depending on
the number of guests and length of stay.
Maid Service: We thoroughly clean the cabin prior to your arrival and after your departure. Rates do not include daily maid
service. We ask that guests leave everything as they found it for others to enjoy. Additional charges may apply to cover any
excessive cleaning costs, or unfair wear and tear.
Kitchenette: The kitchen is equipped with basic necessities, coffee, and some condiments. Please clean the dishes and
kitchen prior to departure.
Beds: The bedroom has a full size bed with a newer plush mattress. A new queen size sleeper sofa is located in the living
room/kitchenette area of the cabin. The sleeper sofa is not recommended for those needing a firm sleep surface. Maximum
capacity of the cabin is 4 people. If you're planning on having 4 people stay at the cabin, please check the floor plan to assure
that you'll be comfortable. The Mariposa is cozy for two guests, but gets really cozy with 4 guests.
Bathroom: The bathroom has a smaller shower and sink with a flushing toilet. Soap and shampoo are provided.
Climate: The Pikes Peak Region is famous for its mild, dry climate. With an average of 246 days of sunshine per year you’ll
need sunscreen and a hat. You’ll also want to drink plenty of water and use moisturizers. The Mariposa is at an altitude of
7800 feet, which provides cooler summer weather than lodging at lower elevations in Colorado Springs. During June, July, and
August average high temperatures at the cabin will normally range between 70F-85F, while the evening low temperatures will
normally fall between 48F-55F. High temperatures at the cabin will normally range between 60F-72F in May, September, and
October, while the evening low temperatures will normally drop between 35F-45F. The temperatures can change quickly, so
keep a jacket handy.
Turn on the small propane heater in the living room and electric heater in the bedroom when you want to warm things up a bit.
On the few days when it gets warm there’s an evaporative fan that will help cool you off. Due to the cooler climate in Green
Mountain Falls, the cabin does not have air conditioning. The cabin occasionally gets a little warm in late Jun, Jul, and early
Aug from 11am - 3pm, but will start cooling off after 3pm every evening.
Wildlife: It's not uncommon to see deer, raccoons, foxes, black bears and other wildlife when you're at the cabin. The best
way to enjoy the wildlife is to do so with as little disturbance to the animal as possible. Do not feed any animals. Keep all trash
secured (see instructions in the cabin). If you encounter a black bear stay calm, back away, avoid eye contact, do not shout,
walk away slowly. We have very few bugs at the cabin. Normally, you won't need any bug repellent.
