About this home

***For the 2019 / 2020 ski season, Alpen Haus guests will have access to two transferable ski passes for Sunlight Mountain Resort***


The Alpen Haus is a beautiful, secluded home along Four Mile Creek that easily accommodates 6 to 8 guests depending on sleeping arrangements. The Alpen Den is actually the lower level of the Alpen Haus, but has its own private entrance and its own patio. Rent them both to accommodate larger parties. We also own The Bear's Den and Casa Del Sol, which are on the same several-acre property. You can rent multiple rentals to accommodate an even larger group. Renting both the Alpen Haus and Alpen Den will be required for larger groups to ensure that all guests have enough privacy and everyone has a good time. Discounts may be available when renting multiple places! All four of our places would allow for a total party of 16 to 20 guests.



***Note - due to our location outside of town, we are only subject to 3.9% state and county sales tax vs. the 11% tax required at properties located in Glenwood Springs proper.***



The Alpen Haus is a stunning 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home perfect for your family gathering. Plenty of decks, patios, and gathering areas. Private and scenic for your perfect vacation.



The master bedroom features a king bed and a premium bathroom within the bedroom. Of the other two bedrooms, once features a king bed while the other has a queen. There are also two queen-sized sofa beds available in two separate areas. There is a powder room / half bath located on the main level for those guests sleeping on the sofa beds.



A fully equipped kitchen gives you the freedom of eating in if you’re too tired to try one of the many fabulous restaurants in the area. Relax in the large living area and enjoy cable TV, wireless internet, or simply unwind with a good book. The Alpen Haus has its own private patio off of the back that offers beautiful views of the surrounding hills and endless stargazing at night. It is a great place for lounging and grilling.



The property also features a recreation field and a horseshoe area. The field is great for volleyball, badminton, croquet, or for just tossing a ball (all the gear is available for your use).



Almost forgot...there is ping pong and foos ball in the garage!



This is the perfect home away from home for your Glenwood Springs vacation. Centrally located, yet off the beaten path, The Alpen Haus is a short drive to both downtown Glenwood Springs and Sunlight Mountain Ski Area. The Alpen Haus is located in the peaceful hills west of town and shares nearly 6 acres of wooded private property along Four Mile Creek. Don't come this far to stay downtown when you can enjoy wildlife viewing during the day and stargazing at night. Accessible year round, The Alpen Haus has it all.



Although we live in a somewhat rural area, we do still have neighbors and trespassing on their property is not allowed.



Glenwood Springs is truly a wonderful vacation spot with all its available activities. We are close to alpine & cross country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, biking, rafting, fishing, shopping, or just soaking in the world famous hot springs... you’ll never run out of things to do! We welcome both short and long terms stays.

Difficult conditions may also exist in November and March. We have the driveway professionally plowed and generally do not have problems. However, inappropriate cars can and do get stuck as elevation changes exist on the driveway as well as the possibility of slick ice and deep snow. Stuck cars do cause problems as the driveway services three separate properties. You are required to provide information about the cars that will be driven during the winter. Guests that become stuck are responsible for all associated costs.***

    One of our favorite places

    The accommodations were amazing. Beds were comfortable, entire house was clean including the outdoor patio furniture. The kitchen and family areas were great for a family. Every amenity that we needed was there plus much more. The owner was quickly available to help with any question we had. We would definitely book again. Great experience with so many things to do and great restaurants too.

    Perfect for A family getaway

    The house and property were were beautiful on person than the pics even conveyed. We stayed with our family plus both sets of grandparents, and everyone had a great time. So much to do around town, but we loved the house and property with the badminton court so much that we made sure to spend as much time at the house as we did exploring the area. By the way, Rifle Falls was a really fun day trip. Mark was quick to respond to any needs. Already planning how we can come back!

    10/10 would recommend and stay again.

    This property exceeded my expectations. The property manager was very easy to work with. The house was very clean and in a beautiful location. Close enough to amenities but far enough for the quiet mountain feel. My family and I will certainly be returning.

    We’ll be back!

    Came up with girlfriends, but will be back with the whole family! Great location - close to town but away from the “hustle and bustle”, tons of space, gourmet kitchen, many in-site things for the kiddos - volleyball/badminton, foosball, ping pong. The “sister” properties available allow for an even larger group!

    Spacious and Comfortable

    This home is very spacious, attractive and comfortable. The owner was easy to communicate with and came right over when we had a small issue. The home was well stocked with everything that you could possibly need, including the ping pong and foosball table in the garage. There is also a wonderful patio to enjoy the outdoors.

    Family time

    The house was better than pictures showed. Three bedrooms upstairs by the laundry room was handy. Lots of places to sit, talk and eat both inside and outside on your choice of 3 patios. The bottle of wine was much appreciated after the long day driving there. Yes we would go back there again.
