'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 the owner: 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.
Why the Owner 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!
