"An unfortunate last-minute change with another property owner resulted in the very fortunate occurrence of me finding this wonderful property right in Manitou Springs where we wanted to stay! It was more than perfect for my women's retreat with 8 women! Plenty of room, huge kitchen table, cozy seating areas & comfy beds.
The bedrooms were all decorated nicely with good linens. The 2nd floor bathrooms both have double sinks and a shower or bath so it was very adequate for our group. We decided not to put anyone on the 3rd floor since as the owner mentions, it is not that suitable for taller (or older) adults with the steep stairs and peaked, low ceilings. We did check it out and the beds are built into the sides of the walls which I imagine all kids would love! Plus there is a 3/4 (?) bath up there too!
The backyard is spacious with a wonderful patio but we only got to have lunch outside once since the Oct weather didn’t cooperate. Many of us checked out the great views on both of the two 2nd floor balconies.
We loved being able to walk down the hill to shop and hang out in Manitou all day Saturday and not have to drive, search and pay for parking. Sunday we enjoyed lounging at the residence in the “salon” after a leisurely breakfast.
I would give this property 5 stars but there were some electrical outlets and lighting over the bathroom sinks that weren’t working plus a few other quirks which are probably just a result of the challenges of maintaining “this old house”. Nothing so bad we wouldn’t consider returning or highly recommend this property!
We had an issue with the disposal side of the kitchen sink not draining and the owner had someone out first thing Sat morning to fix it. Fortunately it didn’t affect both sides of the sink so we weren’t hampered for our meal preparation/clean-up.
After thinking I was going to have to cancel my women’s retreat and return everyone’s money at the last minute things worked out better than I could have imagined! We were all thrilled!"

"Nice home, comfortable furniture, lots of cozy blankets. The loft is huge and the kids enjoyed this sleeping area. This home is at a pretty high altitude, over 8000 feet, and some members of our party had trouble sleeping this high up and suffered from some high altitude sickness."

"Wow! It's hard to come up with the perfect words to describe such an incredible place. The cabin is beautiful in pictures but even more breathtaking in real life. The cabin is clean and organized and every amenity you could think of is there. The hot tub is awesome and the views are incredible! My girlfriend and I vacationed here for Valentine's weekend and it was perfectly romantic (including heart shaped chocolate on the bed and a personal welcome sign on the front door). Brad and Laura are extremely accommodating and are prompt in their responses if you need them for any reason. Our car got stuck at the bottom of the hill due to snow that our 2WD car couldn't handle, but Brad offered to come snow plow again/put dirt down and we were able to make it up the hill! I really could go on for essays worth of how incredible this place is and how I wish we could have stayed forever! We will definitely back! I recommend this place to any and everyone no matter the occasion of travel. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again for everything, Brad and Laura! We look forward to staying with Divide Rentals in the future!!"

"We rented this condo with another couple. There was so much privacy for both couples, which was wonderful. King suites fit for queens!! The condo was immaculate upon arrival and absolutely beautiful! Maureen was a "gem"! So personable and willing to help. I can't imagine going back to this area and NOT staying here!! Great price for the money, beautiful scenery and the condo had everything we needed. Add in the fact the Arkansas River is literally running next to the deck and you couldn't ask for more. Thank you Dave and Maureen for making our vacation so memorable! Don't make a mistake and stay anywhere else, this is the vacation spot for everyone!!"
