About the property

Luxury home with upscale kitchen and bathrooms, indoor hot tub, game room, views

This ultra beautiful custom home is situated in Alma, the highest incorporated town in America. Walking distance to the shops and restaurants in downtown Alma, and only minutes away from Breckenridge. The 16 mile stretch between Alma and Breckenridge is one of the most scenic in Colorado.

It features 3 bedrooms, a sleeping loft, 3 full bathrooms, game room, open concept living room and kitchen, and indoor hot tub room.

The kitchen features only the best granite counter tops, custom cabinets with soft closing drawers and doors, stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, gas range and stove top, and a deep composite sink. Seating for 8 in the kitchen. Enough for a crowd. Pots, pans, skillets, spices and plenty of cooking utensils. Everything you need to make a gourmet meal.

We have a large outdoor charcoal grill as well.

Living Room has two over-sized leather couches and 1 over-sized matching chair and ottoman. Gorgeous gas fireplace with glass rock. 55" TV with DVD player and Cable TV.

With the open concept kitchen/living area, you can watch your favorite show while cooking your favorite meal.

Two matching master bedrooms feature queen size beds with ultra plush bedding, 32" TV, DVD player, full size bathroom and sliding glass door to the outdoors. You can watch for deer, moose, bear or other wildlife right from the comfort of your bed. Each master bath features a tub/shower combo with rain shower head, granite counter tops, and custom cabinets and tile work throughout.

Downstairs bedroom has bunk bed with full size bed and twin bed. Very comfortable pillow-top bedding in this room as well.

The sleeping loft has one queen bed.

Game Room has shuffle board table and Foosball table with gas fireplace, bar and game table.

Indoor Hot tub has large opening overhead door so you can enjoy the outdoor elements in the comfort of being indoors. The hot tub has color changing lights and an auxiliary hook up so you can listen to your own music while enjoying the warm bubbly bliss.

There are 3 TV's that have Dish Satellite TV with movie channels. Free WiFi. We also have a pack n play for small children and portable high chair as well as toys and lots of movies. Not to mention a game cube gaming system, Sega Genesis and endless board games.

There is also portable humidifiers and fans for your convenience.

If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin.

This is a beautiful home to spend any season of the year. The access is year-round. 4-wheel drive or chains is a necessity in the winter months. The driveway and roads are plowed but you will need the chains or 4-wheel drive for deeper snow after a storm. It can also become slick if the snow melts and refreezes. We are not responsible if you choose to come to the home without the proper equipment during the winter months.

Parking is only available in the driveway at this time.

Cozy luxurious stay in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home with everything we needed to feel welcome and enjoy our stay in the mountains for our entire family (grandparents, mom and dad, and a 10 and 7 year old). Game room was awesome for the kids, hot tub was perfect after all the mountain activities. We enjoyed horseback riding just 15 minutes from the cabin and whitewater rafting about 45 mins away. Loved all the amenities, dimmable lights, stocked spice cabinet, gas stove, plenty of space for all to spread out. We were also able to enjoy crisp morning runs around the neighborhood. Sound system was awesome too. The Fords were very hospitable and we had no issues though out our stay. Great cabin and we would love to return someday!

Colorado Hike

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home in the small town of Alma. Highest incorporated town in the US. 10,500 feet plus. So plan accordingly for altitude. The home is beautiful, everything in the home works as it should, great open floor plan and great views out the windows of the main room. Beds are comfortable and the hot tub is super nice after a day of exertion for sure. The home has cable and wifi which came in handy for checking up with work and watching college football. Cannot think of a downfall with this gem. Just a quick 15 minutes to Breckenridge if you need the hustle and bustle, otherwise, Alma has a great bar and grille for awesome food and drinks that definitely won't break the bank.

Absolutely Amazing In Alma!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Alma, Colorado was amazing! The home is absolutely beautiful, clean and even better in person than what the pictures show! This was my first stay at a VRBO/Home Away and it met, and succeeded, my expectations. The owner was extremely thorough and reliable. She checked in with us during our stay and ensured that trash was taken care of etc. Alma is a pretty amazing town and I would highly recommend this location for a quiet secluded vacation, but close enough to areas such as Breckenridge, Fairplay, and Leadville. Extremely close location for hiking some 14ers....including Mt. Democrat, Cameron and Bross.

Take the plunge and book this location- you will NOT be disappointed!!

Wonderful house with beautiful view. Secluded in Alma but close enough to Breckenridge for action. Beautiful kitchen that we actually had most meals at the house. We took advantage of hot tub and games.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

The home was absolutely beautiful and stocked with all of the essential items. The area is very quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed the stunning views of the mountain on the deck. It would have been better if there was a table for us to put our drinks on while sitting outside. The dining situation was not conducive for small children. The barstools were very heavy and my 5 year old fell while trying to push the stool back when he was seated in it. Overall, it was a wonderful vacation with lots of memories made!

Owner's Response: Hi Jessica, I'm glad you had a nice vacation. I'm sorry your little took a tumble. We also have a 5 year old and a 2 year old who often eat at the coffee table, but use the bar stools as well. Yes the stools can be heavy for little ones to move but they were designed to match the decor of the home and withstand heavy use from renters and such. Thank you for your stay.
