Property description

“Alpenhill' is a delightful mountain retreat on spacious grounds (.75 acre) and a cherished second home we share with guests throughout the seasons. We're on Steamboat's main ski mountain only 3/8 mile to the gondola & slopes, in a beautiful mountain neighborhood with tree lined hillsides, spectacular views AND on the BUS ROUTE. It is simply where most want to be when visiting Steamboat! You will find NO white carpet here, but plenty of firewood and the warmth of an upscale mountain home, made for casual living. Soak in our private hot tub while the kids and family dog romp in the big fenced yard or barbecue on the shaded back deck next to the aspen grove. Watch the “alpenglow” move across Mt Werner and enjoy the spectacular 100 mile view down the Yampa Valley! Walk to the ski slopes, gondola or mountain restaurants and summer music programs. It's also close to basic services like banks, ATMs, groceries, liquor stores, restaurants, medical, pharmacies and postal services.


Inside you'll find the warm interior of a designer's mountain cabin with pine walls, a wood burning fireplace and stone hearth PLUS all the high tech equipment you could want, as Dsl (wireless), DVD, VCR, HD TV w/ DVR, often including the NFL Dish Network Football programing and a family friendly video library for your use. A big oak dining table provides a perfect place to gather around, with a bar and two outside decks near by. All rooms have good ventilation, ceiling fans and thermostats for comfortable stays in any season. The laundry room and garage come in handy on active vacations and our kitchen is extremely well equipped for stylish and memorable meals... inside or outside. This is not just a rental unit, but a real home with many extra comforts, some 'Western flair' like log beds and wonderful local wildlife photography. In fact, it looks like it may be the home of animal lovers and adventurers ... and IT IS! 

Each of the 3 bedrooms have quality mattresses and bedding including winter down and summer comforters, individual thermostats, shaded windows and quiet ceiling fans to make for good sleeping, summer or winter. The master bedroom is a mini 'get a way' with glass doors opening to the deck facing the top of Mt Werner. WHAT a way to wake up!! It has an impressive King sized log bed, desk, phone and internet connections (for any workaholic traveling with you). The attached master bath includes a large jetted tub and separate shower. A second bedroom has another beautiful (queen) log bed and a pretty third bedroom has oak twin beds.



If you ever need assistance, our caretaker couple lives in a separate apartment on the property and will be happy to help. 'Alpenhill' was made for good times, so just bring your loved ones, skis and a smile and come ready to make your own memories.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Interior designer, business owner, wildlife/ animal lover and avid skier, Cynthia, moved 'Out West', from Michigan, 30 years ago and selected Steamboat for her family's second home. Later she purchased 'Alpenhill' because of it's prime location and private grounds and so her dogs could always come along with family and friends. She transformed the older large single family home into a private vacation retreat with a seperate caretaker's apartment for an onsite couple to keep things nice for her and guests, year round.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Mt. Werner:
"Alpenhill" is located on the main ski mountain (Mt Werner) and is high enough to have great views, yet it has a privacy factor unlike many, while offering good access to all that Steamboat has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have a unique feature of being on "The Mountain" but with semi flat grounds and about .75 acres, perfect for dogs and dog lovers and have a big fenced yard. That is very unique for a mountain home. Also, we were one of the first homes, available for a short term rental lease, who welcomed pets. So many appreciate that and we appreciate them being responsible and loving pet owners!
