  • Incredible Mountain Home

    "Where do I begin...the house is nothing short of amazing, the views are spectacular!! Quietly tucked away in a wonderfully quiet neighborhood, this house has it all!! Kitchen is fully equipped for even the most discerning cooks, beautifully appointed high end furnishings make this home comfortable and stylish. Bedding is top of the line. Shuttle service to gondola was perfect for skiing and dining in town. Homeowners were a pure delight to work with and gave suggestions and tips for making our stay truly wonderful!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!! We can't wait to return for another lovely stay."

  • First-time VRBO user and Colorado tourist - Best family vacation ever!

    "Spent a week at Alpine Haven and no one wanted to leave! Great location - private, peaceful, wooded neighborhood made us feel secluded, yet located only a few minutes to town, the hot springs and endless fishing holes (if you wanna fish, be sure and hit Echo Lake). Loved The Springs. We have a 9yo and were very pleased at how "kid-friendly" they were (there's also an "18+ only" area...complete with gas-log fire pits and really comfy lounge chairs). We loved that the town had a laid-back vibe and was NOT overrun with tourists (like ourselves lol). Also drove up Wolf Creek Pass (hubby's a closet C.W. McCall fan) to the Continental Divide...about 20 minutes away. If you head up there, be sure and stop in South Fork at The Old Firehouse Grill. THE BEST food! Neighbors were friendly and helpful, too (nice older gentleman stopped and chatted with us...gave us the down-low on good fishing spots and area wildlife). Everything was very clean and nicely decorated....and the two decks were perfect for relaxing. Pam was extra quick to respond to our questions... And the house was well-stocked with everything you need (tons of towels, sheets, dishes, even cooking spices, tea and coffee). And, very quick return of our deposit. I have no complaints and would book there again in a heartbeat. Husband's been looking at Pagosa real estate - and dreaming of retirement - since we got home. All around, just perfect! Thanks so much!"

  • The Perfect Corner of Telluride

    "My wife and I had a fabulous weekend staying in this condo. It's clean, well appointed, and in the perfect location for us. If you go out the door and head down valley you are immediately on hiking and biking trails, take your pick which side of the creek you want to travel on. Across the street is the shuttle bus stop and you never have to wait long for a free ride into town. Just up the street the newly re-modeled Clark's Market is the best grocery store in town. They have a new takeout area with everything you'd want for a lunch in the woods or dinner at home with the family. We'll be back again thanks!"

  • Perfect short stay without spending too much

    "This studio was immaculate. Obviously newly renovated. Very well appointed with everything we needed. Bed was a murphy bed and very comfortable. View from the living area/bedroom was a stunning view of the mountains. It was small but we expected that. It is ideal for a couple or one person. Overall, we loved it!"
