Divide House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 3BR/2BA Mountain Home, sleeps 6

'Deer Meadow Retreat': This beautiful mountain hideaway is tucked away in its own private valley near the end of a cul de sac road where the only passersby will be you. The meadow is graced with wildflowers and frequently visited by wildlife including deer, fox and occasionally a bear. Relax on the front deck and take in the panoramic views of pine and aspen forests on the surrounding hillsides. Soaking in the hot tub on a moonless night will open up another world, with more stars in the sky than you could have ever imagined.

And yet, your vacation paradise is conveniently located between Divide and Cripple Creek, less than a mile off the main highway, on a county maintained road that is easily accessible year round. You are only 45 minutes from Colorado Springs, 10 miles from historic Cripple Creek, and surrounded by state parks, hiking trails and back road jeep trails.

The home features new paint inside and out, new carpet and flooring, including ceramic tile, and many luxury items such as an Italian leather sofa and new pillow top mattresses. The decor is a warm mix of Southwestern and Mexican art, making each room a different experience of color and flair.

After a busy day of activities or visiting the many local tourist attractions, you can wind down in front of your beautiful Southwestern tiled gas fireplace, enjoying dish TV, your own DVDs or some of ours. The bedding is comfortably set up with 2 Queens and 2 Twins.

You will never want to leave the Colorado Rockies after a few days at our 'Deer Meadow Retreat'!!

About Gay and Gary Liberty

Gay and Gary Liberty have recently moved to Woodland Park and personally manage and maintain their three vacation rental cabins in the Pikes Peak area. Gary is retired from Air Force Reserves and his civil service career as an aircraft mechanic. Gay has many years of experience in the hospitality field in both resort marketing and hotel reservations and front desk. They are delighted to share their love of the Colorado mountains and their love of each special cabin setting to ensure a memorable and relaxing vacation experience for their guests.

Gay and Gary Liberty purchased this house in 1998

Why Gay and Gary Liberty chose Divide

At the time when Deer Meadow Retreat was built, Gay...a mountian gal at heart...had been living in Divide and in the Rainbow Valley development for several years. Having some extra cash to invest, she shopped for quite some time to locate the right piece of land for the home she had personally selected as well. The intent was to rent the house conventionally, which she did for several years. Everything changed once she and Gary, now married, decided to update the house and rent it as a vacation rental because, for several years they had been living in Peyton, CO and for the first time they could enjoy the cabin and the location themselves!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gay and Gary



Well, we’ve been home for a week, and I wish I was still there in Colorado. We had a great time, and your cabin was wonderful. We had time to relax, time to explore, time to play, and time to re-connect. We had deer, elk, a fox, more deer, raccoons, and something that I’m not sure what it was (a pair of eyes peering at me at night, definitely not a hoofed creature) at the cabin.



It was 106 degrees in Riverside today.



I’ve got to figure out a way to spend more of my summers in Colorado.



Thanks again for sharing your cabin with us.



Blessings,



Tony

Very Quiet and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
This was a very quiet and relaxing place to stay. The property was clean and well stocked. We have 4 kids ranging in age from 5-14 and enjoyed every minute. It was far enough from other houses that you didn't have any noise, which is surprising considering that there is a busy highway only a short distance away. The only problem we had was that we have a large diesel truck and couldn't make the hairpin turns to get to it and into the driveway. We had to make several tries at it backing up and going forward again. But it could not be helped, and was definitely worth it! There is a nice little grocery store just a few minutes away. We also really enjoyed the hot tub. My kids all had a blast! We would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Quiet Valley Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was beautiful and it really is secluded in its own valley. Gorgeous views and many hummingbirds visited the feeder. Being in the valley blocks the light, so stargazing was amazing from the hot tub at night, and we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The owners were incredibly helpful, kind, and generous. We would definitely recommend this cabin and plan to be back.

So comfy and cozy!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented many cabins in Colorado over the last few years and this one is definitely one of our favorites. We loved the views and the privacy! Our party arrived for the Thanksgiving holiday in time to put together a complete turkey dinner. Thanks Gay, for the early check-in. The cabin was exactly as pictured; no surprises. We enjoyed the little touches like the hairdryer, lots of big towels and holiday dinnerware! Even though it was pretty chilly, we spent quite a bit of time on the deck watching the deer come down into the valley every evening and often in the mornings too. Overall this was such a relaxing weekend, and not having to worry about toting a high chair and crib up to the cabin was a big plus. If you have young kids or toddlers, this place is perfect. It took all of 3 minutes to move a few nic-nacs to higher shelves so our 1 year old wasn't tempted by them. Thanks Gay and Gary, for a wonderful weekend!

Great way to ring in the new year

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this little getaway. It was very secluded, quiet, and had breath taking scenery (especially with the snow that had fallen the day before our arrival). All of the amenities of the house were modern and in great shape. Greatly appreciated not only having the driveway plowed of snow before our arrival, but also having the deck shoveled and the hot tub temperature turned up prior to our arrival. The entire package allowed us to focus our entire efforts on relaxing and enjoying ringing in the new year. We plan on staying here again in the future.
