***For the 2018 / 2019 ski season, Alpen Haus guests will have access to two transferable ski passes for Sunlight Mountain Resort***
The Alpen Haus is a beautiful, secluded home along Four Mile Creek that easily accommodates 6 to 8 guests depending on sleeping arrangements. The Alpen Den is actually the lower level of the Alpen Haus, but has its own private entrance and its own patio. Rent them both to accommodate larger parties. We also own The Bear's Den and Casa Del Sol, which are on the same several-acre property. You can rent multiple rentals to accommodate an even larger group. Renting both the Alpen Haus and Alpen Den will be required for larger groups to ensure that all guests have enough privacy and everyone has a good time. Discounts may be available when renting multiple places! All four of our places would allow for a total party of 16 to 20 guests.
***Note - due to our location outside of town, we are only subject to 3.9% state and county sales tax vs. the 11% tax required at properties located in Glenwood Springs proper.***
The Alpen Haus is a stunning 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home perfect for your family gathering. Plenty of decks, patios, and gathering areas. Private and scenic for your perfect vacation.
The master bedroom features a king bed and a premium bathroom within the bedroom. Of the other two bedrooms, once features a king bed while the other has a queen. There are also two queen-sized sofa beds available in two separate areas. There is a powder room / half bath located on the main level for those guests sleeping on the sofa beds.
A fully equipped kitchen gives you the freedom of eating in if you’re too tired to try one of the many fabulous restaurants in the area. Relax in the large living area and enjoy cable TV, wireless internet, or simply unwind with a good book. The Alpen Haus has its own private patio off of the back that offers beautiful views of the surrounding hills and endless stargazing at night. It is a great place for lounging and grilling.
The property also features a recreation field and a horseshoe area. The field is great for volleyball, badminton, croquet, or for just tossing a ball (all the gear is available for your use).
Almost forgot...there is ping pong and foos ball in the garage!
This is the perfect home away from home for your Glenwood Springs vacation. Centrally located, yet off the beaten path, The Alpen Haus is a short drive to both downtown Glenwood Springs and Sunlight Mountain Ski Area. The Alpen Haus is located in the peaceful hills west of town and shares nearly 6 acres of wooded private property along Four Mile Creek. Don't come this far to stay downtown when you can enjoy wildlife viewing during the day and stargazing at night. Accessible year round, The Alpen Haus has it all.
Although we live in a somewhat rural area, we do still have neighbors and trespassing on their property is not allowed.
Glenwood Springs is truly a wonderful vacation spot with all its available activities. We are close to alpine & cross country 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 welcome both short and long terms stays.

***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.***
