Distinctive Vacation Retreat w/ Hot Tub, Private Valley and Views!!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


Rainbow Valley 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 3 Queens.

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 Colorado

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.

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!

A great time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two nights here. We had a great time! Plus, Cripple Creek casinos are a short distance down the road. All I can say is this place was well kept, peaceful, and relaxing. This was our reconnaissance trip to scope the area out. We will certainly be back.

Perfect Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I came here on a retreat with friends before we all went back to college and it was perfect. It was well stocked with the basics and the perfect size. We spent most of our time in the hot tub looking at the gorgeous views. The owners kept in touch and were very friendly! Very clean and fun place to stay!

Relaxing and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights. We loved cooking in the kitchen and using the grill on the deck. The night sky is amazing from the hot tub. Would definitely go back.

Wonderful, peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

I spent two nights here with my husband and our 2 year old son. We had such a wonderful time. If you are on the fence i'd say go for it! Gay was absolutely delightful to deal with. The pictures in this listing don't to the cabin justice. It was much nicer and much larger than we expected it to be. It was a very private setting at the end of a dead end road. We came to town from Ohio just to get away for a week (we spent the rest of our trip in Denver). This place was just what we needed to unwind and relax. We got no cell phone reception at the cabin which for us was a total plus. We plan on trying to come again next year but for a longer amount of time!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review.... So wonderful to hear that you wish to come back! Just to clarify for the reader that we do have a land line phone so it is easy to stay in touch with the world if you need to be! Some cell phones do work but I can't tell you what type of phone or carrier... And you don't have to drive far from the cabin to get cell signal either.
