Glenwood Springs condo description

LABOR DAY WEEKEND AVAILABILTY!

Check availability by clicking on the 'Calendar' tab above.

This cozy apartment is the perfect home away from home for your Glenwood Springs vacation. The Alpen Den is a short drive to Glenwood Springs and many of the attractions the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer. Plus it is only about 10 minutes down the road from Sunlight Mountain Resort. Located in the serene hills just outside town, The Alpen Den is the perfect spot for wildlife viewing and stargazing. Why stay in town when you can enjoy this relaxing retreat which shares nearly 6 acres of wooded private property along Four Mile Creek. Accessible year round, The Alpen Den has it all.

This two bedroom and full bath residence provides you with ample space for relaxation after a long day of activities. The Alpen Den is located in the walk out lower level of our home, has private access and offers a master bedroom with a king bed, walk in closet and separate outdoor access; plus a second bedroom with a king bed which converts to 2 twins if desired. There is a fully equipped kitchen which provides you the freedom of eating in if you’re unable to muster the strength to try one of the many fabulous restaurants in the area. Relax in the living room and enjoy cable TV, wireless internet, a woodburning fireplace, or simply unwind with a good book. A private patio along Four Mile Creek is the perfect place to view Mt. Sopris during the day or star gaze at night.

Glenwood Springs is truly a wonderful vacation spot with all its available activities. We are clost to alpine and crosscountry 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 are a pet friendly property and welcome both short and long terms stays. Owners, Matt & Michelle, believe they have found paradise and we look forward to sharing it with you!


(We own both The Alpen Den and The Bear's Den, which are on the same property. Rent both to accommodate larger parties.)
