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

Gay and Gary Liberty purchased this House in 1998
Why Gay and Gary Liberty chose Rainbow Valley
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!

Very Quiet and Relaxing!
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, peaceful and comfortable
We had a wonderful time at Rainbow Valley. The surroundings were beautiful this time of year and we were able to take nice walks out the front door. The cabin is cozy and had everything we needed. The hosts were very responsive to questions before our arrival. We will definitely be back!
Great little get away!
We had a great time! Owners were very responsive. Great place to get away and unwind!
Quiet, Cozy, Little place in the valley
If you are out to be away from cell service and be in the wilderness, this is the place to go! Loved our say in the middle of April 2018. Not too hot, but was able to experience pretty much all the seasons in one week :-) Really look forward to coming back again in the future!
The cabin is located in a beautiful valley, in the foothills of Pikes Peak. The cabin is clean and you have everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There is an outside deck, facing the valley with absolutely killer views. Sitting in the Hot Tub at night, with all the stars, is an unbelievable experience. The bedrooms are roomy and the beds comfortable. The two bathrooms are great and the master bathroom has a large garden tub. The kitchen is a nice size and well equipped. I would book this cabin again, with no hesitation.
Be aware that you probably won't have cell phone service. We had access to both Verizon and AT&T and no one had service. There is wifi available (not for streaming) for keeping in contact with family or there is a landline with free long-distance. You also have Direct TV. You will be expected to leave the cabin as you found it but that is the norm for most vacation rentals.
*My one issue was with the pet instructions. I didn't receive them until after I had booked. I assumed that our dog would have the run of the house but that isn't the case. You are expected to keep your dog off the furniture and beds. I really feel those instructions should be included in the general descriptions for us pet owners.
Everything for perfect relaxing getaway
Everything we needed to relax and a great getaway. We will definitely be back again
Hiking, scenic drives, tourist and historical attractions, gambling.
