Overview

About the property

Family home near skiing & bus, 3 bdrms/2ba, Hot Tub, Garage, Yard, Pets, 1 level

“Alpenhill' is a delightful mountain retreat on spacious grounds (.75 acre) with a great hot tub and is 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 quiet mountain neighborhood with tree lined hillsides, spectacular views AND on the BUS ROUTE. It is simply where most want to be when visiting Steamboat and because we’re on one level, no one needs to be left behind. We have a "cabin-like" interior with 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 1/4 acre fenced yard OR barbecue on the aspen shaded back deck. Watch the “alpenglow” move across Mt Werner and enjoy the spectacular 100 mile view down the Yampa Valley! Walk to the ski slopes, restaurants and summer music programs. Basic services are close by, as groceries, banks, ATMs, liquor stores, restaurants, medical care, pharmacies and postal services. If you wish to bring a well mannered pet, they must be approved, so please let us know about them in your inquiry.


Inside you'll find an interior designer's mountain cabin with pine walls, a wood burning fireplace and stone hearth PLUS all the tech equipment you could want as high speed internet, DVD, VCR, HD/TV with DVR, and a family friendly video library for your use. A big oak dining table (expandable) provides a perfect place to gather around, with a bar and two outside decks near by. All rooms have good ventilation, ceiling fans and individual thermostats for comfortable stays in any season. The laundry room and garage come in handy on active vacations and our kitchen is 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 and lots of 'Western flair' like log beds and local wildlife photography. In fact, it looks like it may be the home of animal lovers and adventurers ... and IT IS! 

Bedrooms have quality mattresses and bedding including winter down and summer comforters, 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 back 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 twin beds and a big antique oak dresser.


Need assistance during your stay? 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 (4 & 2 legged), your skis and a smile and come ready to make your own memories.

About Cynthia Hand-Treece

The owner, a designer and wildlife and animal lover and avid skier, moved 'Out West', years ago and then discovered Steamboat for her family's second home. 'Alpenhill' was selected due to it's prime location and private grounds and so dogs could always come along with family and friends. The original large single family home was remodeled to include a separate caretaker's apartment to ensure on site care year round.

Cynthia Hand-Treece purchased this house in 1990

Why Cynthia Hand-Treece chose Northwest

"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 most, while offering good access to all that Steamboat has to offer.

What makes this house unique

We have a unique feature of being on "The Mountain" but with relatively flat grounds and about .75 acres, perfect for kids and dogs and a big fenced yard. That is very unique for a mountain home. We were one of the first short term rental homes who welcomed pets. So many appreciate that and we appreciate them being responsible and loving pet owners!

NICE PLACE TO STAY IN STEAMBOAT

  • 4 of 5

We lacked clear directions on how to check-in. But we used map location and caretaker was there to introduce us to the property. House was clean and well maintained. Kitchen was well stocked. The beds were all comfortable. Hot Tub was nice. Pet friendly.

Ski Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Had a group of 5 stay here for a long ski weekend and had a great time. Home is nice and we really took advantage of the hot tub!

Wanted to note a couple things that were not obvious to us from the description.

1) The house is a duplex that is shared with the caretakers. They are very nice and helped us keep the snow off, but don't get the impression you're on your own here.

2) It's a 5-10 minute walk to the free bus stop that runs through Steamboat, and about the same if you wanted to keep walking all the way to the resort. This is worth noting for those in ski boots, you probably don't want to make that hike up and down a few hills. We opted to walk in normal boots and get a locker at the resort.

Family Christmas - Dec '16

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, well-equipped, comfortable house with plenty of space and a great yard. We were traveling with 2 children and 2 dogs and we spent a wonderful Christmas there. Cynthia and the caretakers were very helpful and friendly, everything in the house worked great. The house is just a 5-minute drive from the ski area and near the free bus route also. Thank you for a fantastic vacation and a very happy holiday for our family!

Great pet friendly house

  • 5 of 5

This property has a well appointed, clean house, friendly caretaker and a yard that our dogs loved. Side deck was much used both morning and evening. Will return to this property if we revisit Steamboat.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

If you are a group of 6 or so plus your puppy pal, definitely consider this lovely home as an option for your vacation to Steamboat. Comfortably furnished, clean, a great kitchen for eating in, and cozy amenities. The hot tub was fabulous after days of hiking. Our pup was welcome (owner provides doggy towels and even a crate!) and had a great space to explore out back. Our party of 6 slept comfortably and ate and socialized easily in the dining room and living room. I was very happy with the large, stocked kitchen so we weren't forced to eat out. My mom wants to me to say here that she was very pleased that the kitchen had so much of everything - enough for a few meals to be eaten by our party without being forced to do the dishes to have enough utensils, etc. We had a plumbing issue that was resolved that very day when we were out hiking - Cynthia responded immediately to our needs and I couldn't be happier with our stay. Thank you!

Wonderful, cozy home, great for pets and wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at this house. It was so cozy, and convenient to everything, and our dog

loved the accommodations and especially the back yard! The house is very well appointed, and is close to everything (we walked down to the base and to the bus stop several times). We had 3 deer come right up to the back fence one morning ... truly unforgettable! A wonderful spot!
