About Robert Gartner

I live in South Denver. I have lived in Colorado for 26 years. I have owned this vacation home since it was new, bought from the builder.

Robert Gartner purchased this house in 1999

Why Robert Gartner chose Alma

My home is very warm and comfortable. Since it's literally in the center of Colorado, you can easily get to any of the attractions that Colorado has to offer. A beautiful and short commute of 16 miles takes you to the ski areas. Drive a little - save a lot.

What makes this house unique

Alma is a wonderful town, the highest zip code in N. America. It has two eateries / pubs, a wonderful coffee and breakfast shop, the semi-world-famous AL-Mart, and several unique gift shops, and a liquor store.

great house, location, and owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Robert's house in Alma. It's a spacious, comfortable, very clean house, well stocked with kitchenware and linens (as well as toiletries, which we really appreciated), with a great view of the town from the side of a mountain. Fairplay is a short drive south and Breckenridge a thirty-minute drive to the north (albeit along a highway that has some steep grades and scary hairpin turns). Robert was very accommodating with his advice about the area and information about the house; everything went like clockwork. The only downside is that the house has no wifi, and neither my wife nor I had cell phone reception in Alma--which meant that we were off the grid for much of our trip (though that can also be liberating). We highly recommend this rental.

Spacious mountain home

  • 5 of 5

The owner easy to communicate with and the home was very clean, spacious and close to FairPlay and the mountains. Definitely recommend this home for a family. My boys loved exploring the yard and we could comfortably watch them from the living room.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you are looking to hike or ski in the Breckenridge area without paying the Breckenridge prices. The owner is very helpful and provides you with everything you could need at the cabin. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Couldn't have asked for anything more

  • 5 of 5

This house rental was perfect for our four wheeling trip to Colorado. Robert was very easy to work with and very informative about the location and the area surrounding the rental. It is a quiet, off the beaten track rental that delivered exactly what we needed for our family of five. The rooms are spacious with more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more! Thanks for the great stay, very nice place to come "home" to for the week!
