Cozy cabin in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Love this place and our wonderful hosts! Set between mountains with Chalk Creek just a few yards away, it is so beautiful. The cabin is truly awesome and comfortable. We had a fireplace for the evenings, cooked on the grill and there is so much to explore and do. We hiked all over this gorgeous area, went horseback riding from a stable down the road and just thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We were here nine years ago and just as impressed this time as last!

Charming Cabin in a peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the cabin and the setting! Hearing the creek at night was very peaceful. We had everything we needed in the cabin. We had dinner a couple of night at the cabin. I do suggest getting needed items in Buena Vista before checking in. My only thing I wish was a little better was the WiFi. Our cell phones did not work but we could use the land line in the cabin. But in a way, it was good we didn't have our cell phones to distract from the beauty around us. Overall, we loved it! We hope to return!

Comfortable and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 4 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin was well appointed and had all the amenities we needed. The owners were very kind, helpful, and welcoming. The location was perfect for hiking and fishing, and we enjoyed the quiet character of Alpine.

The view is hard to beat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the little creek-side cabin. The Alpine community was extremely quiet and we enjoyed the private access to Chalk creek. It was oriented near some hiking trails and plenty of other fishing opportunities nearby. We stayed in to cook almost every evening, and found the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. Thank you for making our 10-year anniversary trip enjoyable!
