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 the Alpen Haus (also on VRBO), 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, 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.

***Special Note for winter guests - All wheel drive or four wheel drive autos are required when staying in December, January, and February. Difficult conditions may also exist in November and March. We have the driveway professionally plowed and generally do not have problems. However, inappropriate cars can and do get stuck as elevation changes exist on the driveway as well as the possibility of slick ice and deep snow. Stuck cars do cause problems as the driveway services three separate properties. You are required to provide information about the cars that will be driven during the winter. Guests that become stuck are responsible for all associated costs.***

Why Mark Spidell chose Glenwood Springs
This house is just a short walk from our home. This allows us to be nearby if the need arises, but far enough away to provide privacy. With great views, the peaceful sound of the creek and the proximity to the great outdoor adventure, this property is truly special.
What makes this Condo unique
This property is special because of its location and unique design. It is close to town but also feels rural. You can adjust your plans easily as it is near many different activities. Awesome snow at Sunlight...10 minutes away. Want to go river rafting...10 minutes away. Awesome snow in Aspen...45 minutes away. Want to going for a bike ride...leave from the house or drive a short distance to some awesome trails and paths.

We actually stayed at the Alpen Haus, it became open and Mark offered us to stay there, really nice!
We loved the Alpen Haus! Would have stayed forever! It was really comfortable with all the amenities you need. We really enjoyed the Foosball and ping pong table. It's big and spacious, loved the outdoor patio area. We almost didn't want to leave to go to the hot springs. Mark, the owner was very nice and easy to work with, answered all our questions. Thanks Mark, we will be back!
This property was well kept and very comfortable. We had a little noise from the unit above during our stay, but would still highly recommend the Alpen Den.
Property was just fine, inside nice. Not very cleanly. We brought our dog and he is a trained hunter so he has a nose. Dog found cigarette butt and pill right under bed first night. Cleanliness was a little lacking. Didn't know it was a basement rental only. Need to be specific with pictures, description of property. Little confusing. People upstairs were loud and obnoxious and kept us up two nights in a row. Otherwise it was average. Not good or bad.
I am sorry to hear this guest did not have a positive experience. I do wish he would have communicated with me about these things during his stay and I would have gladly done what I could to improve his stay. I could have possibly even moved him to another rental that would have better fit his needs. The listing does clearly state that the Alpen Den is the lower level of a larger rental known as the Alpen Haus. The Alpen Den is cleaned by a professional between every stay. It is possible that she did not vacuum under the bed and we will work to improve in that area.
Clean, quiet, and comfortable.
Great place to stay.
This place is WONDERFUL!
This rental is in a great location. The place is very clean. Great floors. The furniture, bedding, towels, kitchen stuff are all very good. I do not have one complaint! Looking forward to getting back here. Thank you for the great stay.
The Alpen Den was perfect for the 4 of us! It had everything we needed and more than what we wanted. The surrounding areas were beautiful. The house was close enough to everything from groceries, restaurants, and activities. The property owner, Mark, was great and responsive. It was definitely nice to come back from full days of activities to a comfy home. Thank you so much!
During the summer we provide a dedicated area for badminton, horseshoes and other outdoor games!
