Up On The Mountain!!!
Up On The Mountain!!!
What a beautiful place, and what wonderful people to work with. We have been renting houses in Colorado for the last seven years for our family vaca and by far Brenda was the best person we have ever worked with. We were nervous as this was the first time we had not used a 'rental company' but instead chose to try Home Away. We were not disappointed at all. Brenda was so accommodating, she answered all our questions and made her home feel like ours. When we had a question she was always just a call away, and was always happy to help, even when we had a question on parking for one of the trails we were planning on hiking, she called back to give us more hiking trail ideas!! Now that's service!! The house is beyond amazing and the pictures really don't do it justice. The mountains are right there..literally out the door. Watching the sunrise from the master bedroom upstairs every morning is the best way to wake up. The game room was fabulous for the kids and us also, although my Karaoke chased everyone upstairs! Our son enjoyed the slot machine, (have to watch that when he gets older, lol!) My daughter and I even learned to play pool and had a tournament the last night with the boys! We loved watching the critters come up and eat out of the bird feeder every morning. The hot tub was fabulous of course, sitting in it at night and looking up at the beautiful Colorado sky and stars was unforgettable. Hiking and activities in the area are great. We took Brenda's advice and visited the Montgomery Reservoir, just down the road. What a beautiful waterfall. We did that hike,(though you can see the waterfall without doing the hike), on Monday, and loved it so much we went back the next Sunday to do our traditional family photo for the trip in front of the water. In just one week the reservoir had rose 10 feet and waterfall had doubled in size! Breckenridge is awesome for shopping and has some great restaurants too. You are also not far from Frisco, Vail and Silverthorne. If we decide to go back to this area again, I would totally chose this house again. It had everything that was listed and then some...(I would like to have the master bedroom closet here at home, and the views, and actually the house, though we don't have the views it does!) Thanks again Brenda for taking such good care of us and making our first time using a 'by owner' site so nice. Bobby, Tonya, Austin and Hallie Newman Fair Grove, MO

Owner response: Thank You!! Our family has made many happy memories here at Timberline and I'm glad yours has too. Being a VRBO owner is very rewarding in many ways and it always blesses me to receive a wonderful review like yours. I love reading the guest book comments, seeing postings on our Facebook page, and helping our guest in any way I can. I would welcome the opportunity to have your family visit again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It was so relaxing! We had everything we needed and were so impressed with all the detailed maps in the green book when we ventured out for a drive. Definitely the most organized VRBO rental we have ever stayed in! (and we've stayed in quite a few!) Thanks so much for sharing your "slice of mountain heaven " with us.

Owner response: We are fortunate to be in a area with so many beautiful places to see and enjoy. Whether it is hiking a trail, fishing one of our many streams, climbing a 14er, taking a car ride over Independence Pass or just watching the mountains change throughout the day from our deck. We want all our guests to be informed with what to do in our area and the green book helps them decide and return safely back to Timberline. We hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful place. It was all as you described-so beautiful. I wish we could visit every season to see how the views change. Hiking and horseback riding are a must! Lots of scenic tours around the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Owner response: Judy, it was a pleasure talking with you and having you stay with us. All of Colorado seasons are beautiful but fall is special. The cool days and cooler nights, the woodburning smell in the air, the changing of the aspen trees. We hope that you can come again sometime in September.
My husband and I spent two weeks here for our honeymoon, and it was exactly what we were wanting! It was very secluded and private, the views were gorgeous, and the weather was great! The cabin was just as beautiful, clean, and spacious as the pictures suggest. Brenda was so helpful--easy to contact and quick to answer all our questions. My husband and I will definitely be recommending this place to our friends, and we hope that we can return at some point!

Thank you for a delightful week! We loved the hot tub, the awesome night sky and watching the chipmunks. We look forward to another visit, there just wasn't enough time to do everything we wanted to do! We loved watching the aspens change. The house is so spacious and had everything we needed and then some.

Owner response: We appreciate your thoughtful review and agree that the changing of the aspen trees is a beautiful time to be at Timberline. Yes, Please come again! Reading your comments in our guest book at the cabin it sounds like you were busy. We are happy you had some cool weather and a great Colorado vacation.
Timberline Lodge and Alma is the perfect location-very secluded yet so close to many activities. Alma & Timberline make the absolute perfect “base camp”. Timberline Lodge is awesome-the little touches like the popcorn machine & board games, plus great deck, hot tub, and bird feeder make the cabin special. The location is superb! I only wish Timberline could sleep 8! We want to come back next summer and bring our 3 grown kids & their friends. Thanks so much for the exemplary hospitality!

A Piece of Heaven
A Piece of Heaven
We are from Houston, met my brother & sister in law in Tulsa, Ok. where they live, then we flew to Denver & rented a car to Timberlline. The photos that Brenda (owner) have posted really does not do the place justice. It is the most beautiful place to stay & relax. We enjoyed just setting there in the morning, drinking coffee & looking out the windows at the beautiful mountains!! It snowed lightly one morning for about 30 to 45 min. & of course being from Houston, we got excited. But you can see that Brenda has put a lot of thought, love & energy into making the cabin a place that everyone can enjoy. We will always be grateful to her for sharing a part of her "heaven" with us. It makes you stop & realize what God had created for us & it is ashame that we do not slow down long enough to enjoy his creations. Again, Brenda, thank you for sharing with us. Hope to be back before too long. The Grimes & The Jacobs

We live in Denver and because so, we have enjoyed access to a number of mountain places over many years, but this place is special. This little Alma house is absolutely spotless and beautifully decorated. The views, almost along the timberline, are positively stunning and you can enjoy them from the living room as well as from the hot tub on the deck. Wildlife viewing is absolutely incredible too! The owners have filled the house with charm and the beds are as comfortable as those you'd find in a 4 star Denver hotel. So very few mountain properties are as well maintained as this cabin and it shows the very second you enter the front door. Thanks Brenda and Doug, you have a terrific place that will create so many memories for those who are lucky enough to learn about this cabin and have the chance to stay at your little slice of heaven on the mountain!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We have lived, worked and raised two boys in the mountains of Colorado since 1977. We became empty-nesters and moved to downtown Denver and live across from Coors Field baseball park with our 10 year old chocolate lab Hunter. We built 'Timberline' in 2006 and rented it short term the summer of 2009 & 2011, With a few exceptions we decided to use our home for personal use in 2010 and would love to have you visit in 2012.
Why the Owner Chose Alma:
We have owned a 'cabin' in the mountains since 2000 and have many memories of hiking, skiing ,and taking 4-wheel drive trips etc. with friends and family over the years. Colorado has sunshine filled days year round and the outdoors of our area has much to offer. Every 'cabin' we have owned has been rented short term and enjoyed by many from all over the USA and foreign countries.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home 'Timberline' has been enjoyed by numerous honeymoon couples, families, and adults who want to experience the beauty of the Colorado mountains. We back to the National Forest, have drop dead gorgeous views, private yet not isolated, several 14's just outside our door, trout fishing area's close by, reservoir with huge 'jaw dropping' waterfall and old mine, close to Breckenridge with many year round events. Enjoy our hot tub while watching the sunset and sipping wine or your favorite cocktail. Feed the birds and watch the chipmunks. After you are settled check out our Welcome Book stuffed with things to do in our area. There is something to do for everyone. We would love to help you create the perfect Colorado vacation.
