About Amy

The previous owner designed and built the three cottages in 2001--architecturally, it was designed based on what he thought Thomas Jefferson may have built--the scale is much smaller however—he believed Thomas Jefferson was the greatest architect for visual effect in the history of our country. Valley Glen is a truly unique place to stay in the Colorado mountains!

Amy purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Amy chose Divide

The mountains offer serenity and in our busy lifestyles, we all need that relaxation. This location combines a blend of a remote, romantic oasis with access to outdoor activities, historic locations, and the entertainment of gambling, shopping, and dining.

What makes this cottage unique

the Big Horn Sheep hang around frequently along with deer, elk, and my favorite is the awesome little Hummingbirds that stay around from May through Sept. AND if you are lucky (?) you may see a bear!

5 stars is the consensus!

We absolutely loved this place. The house is adorable and the setting is even better. Saw a herd of goats with their babies crossing the road from Dome Rock wildlife area on the way in. The porch swing and mountain stream behind the house made it perfect.

great cabin, comfortable beds, responsive owner

  • 4 of 5

We loved it! Cute, comfy, and clean. We loved the Gazebo and the patios alongside the stream. The kids enjoyed playing in the Stream and climbing the Hills. We also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds at the feeder.

Quiet and charming

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we asked for. We wanted seclusion and privacy. The location is close to Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs. There is about a 30 minute drive to them from the house but that’s what we were looking for. It has a small kitchen but we had all we needed to cook and grill every night. The bed is very comfortable and our windows were open all the time so we could hear the creek at night. The property is gorgeous and fit for grilling parties and more people if you have them. There are 3 houses that are close together but they are built so they aren’t facing each other and we never saw or heard anyone else. The owner,Amy, is very accommodating and helpful. She stocked the fridge with breakfast foods and restocked it as needed. That was a huge help. We had so much fun and will come back to this house when we return. It would be a good spot for multiple family members to rent and vacation together for a week too

Wonderful! Beware Specifics...

  • 4 of 5

What a cute little place!! We were really pleased with our weekend at the Victorian. Just to be aware: there are not 2 bathrooms! Also, the 3 separate cabins for rent at Valley Glen are approx. 5 feet from one another, but they face separate directions! We did not see anyone else who was staying there, but we were surprised with how close these homes were!

Owner's Response: Gabriel, My apologies regarding the two rooms/bath. I have edited my description so future guests are aware there is one bathroom, one bedroom, and a living room with additional sleeping. Thank you for pointing that out so I could clarify. I am glad you still experienced privacy despite proximity to others. We were actually full capacity when you were here and you were still able to enjoy seclusion for your stay. We hope to have the privilege of hosting you again! AMY

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Victorian for a week in March and it was absolutely lovely. Meet our expectations in every way. Very peaceful and serene, nestled in it's own little valley by a babbling brook. The reading nook was our favorite room. Very close to all our favorite trails like the Crags and Mueller State Park. Amy (the owner) took good care of us. Can't wait to come back!
