FRONTIER ELEGANCE: MTS, SAUNA, SPA, SLEDDING, ARCADE, POOL TABLE

Alma House Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10), 17 breathtaking mi from Breckenridge

WARNING: If your intention is to use drugs or become intoxicated to the point that you are no longer in control of your actions at our home, we DO NOT need or want your business. If this isn't an issue, please read on.

In ski jargon, 'Black Diamonds' are the toughest ski runs for experts only-- but you won't need to be an expert to enjoy this incredibly gorgeous Alpine Lodge! At 10,500 feet, it is nestled in the heart of South Park. Western Frontier meets Elegance in this Gracious home. You'll find the BDAL rivals fine European Ski Lodges and provides Luxurious amenities without the crowded tourist feeling and high prices you will find only 15-20 minutes away in Breckenridge and Summit County. Completely avoid the I-70 weekend & holiday traffic jams by taking US Highway 285 practically right to the house-- it is a breathtaking 1.5 hour drive from either Denver or Colorado Springs. Convenient to major highways in snowy weather, the BDAL is beautifully tucked into pine and aspen forests with huge views. No tired, dark 'cabin' with shabby furniture and small beds here, but 5800 sq ft of custom built luxury overlooking the amazing Continental Divide - huge views of Fourteeners right out your windows or from the private hot tub! Gourmet kitchen - with Nespresso, Keurig and Cuisinart Coffee Machines, 4 large bedrooms (3 kings) and 3 large baths will easily accommodate 10. The luxury master suite is an eye-popper-- see all the features below for it, there is a second king suite upstairs. (We have provided several air mattresses as well). The vaulted Great Room with large log scissor-trusses and a stone-surround wood-burning stove create a Fabulous Resort Lodge experience. Plenty of wood available! The exercise room upstairs has five large view windows and a Bose CD/Ipod sound system, spinning bike and elliptical trainer. Downstairs you'll find 2 more spacious bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with 2 sets of bunks, and another large bath as well. The downstairs Great Room is a great entertainment area to give you (and the kids!) room to spread out. This 5 acre property has the remnants of a gold mine from the last century, the water there even has two schools of Rainbow Trout (just for looking--no fishing please--they are just getting established! There are several stocked fishing locations within 5 minutes' drive.) We've also just cleared a ski/sledding run on the hillside behind the house! Sleds & helmets and snow shoes provided. Hands down one of the nicest rentals in Southpark. You will find the BDAL to be an elegant retreat with a unique Rocky Mountain touch-- you'll want to come back again and again!

We will accept Paypal, checks or Echeck. Please NO credit cards.

Hi Teresa, thank you so much for the use of your home. It is the most amazing, beautiful place I've ever stayed. You are truly lucky to own such a piece of paradise.

We're a USAFA military family. After traveling the world, we chose to settle down in the high mountains of Colorado. We split our time between the Front Range and our mountain home to relax and play.

Teresa Lansford purchased this house in 2007

This is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We enjoy the convenience of all the different kinds of mountain fun in our own front yard. While we are in the mountains, it only takes 2 mins to be on the hwy to Summit county.

After a great day of skiing, we don't have to drive the I-70 bumper-to-bumper traffic for hours to get home. We are in the middle of Fourteeners, gold medal fishing, biking, and hiking--God's country. Use the spotting scope in the great room to look for bears and elk on the divide!

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th vacation in this lovely mountain home. The kitchen is fully equipped and a joy to cook in. The beds are very comfortable and our grand girls loved the TV over the master bath jacuzzi tub and the warm sauna to dress in. The Lansfords are delightful to work with.
I highly recommend this property for family and friends!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
The house and location were incredible, I can honestly say this was the best family vacation we have every taken. Home is awesome for families, the game room was our favorite spot, spent hours playing pool and pinball in the evenings. The view from the hot tub at night was perfect! Tons of fun things to do within miles, white water rafting, hiking, Breck is only 16 miles away, etc. We will definitely be back next year!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Such a wonderful way to enjoy Colorado. I can highly recommend this home without any hesitation. My famiy had high hopes for our vacation after seeing the pictures on the website. Our expectations were both met and exceeded by this amazing mountain home. It was in a great location where we could feel secluded yet have all the conveniences a short drive away. Thank you to the Lansfords for being gracious enough to open their beautiful home to us.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at BDAL was one that we will remember forever! It was the first family vacation for my entire family--4 adult couples, no children. We have other family that live only three miles from BDAL, and it was so nice to be able to have them over for a barbeque or to watch a game! The house is spectacular with every amenity you could possibly ask for, and also some that I would never have thought about! Teresa, thank you for putting directions on machines etc.--they really helped. And thank you for the cookies that were a highlight one night after a long day of excitement. We truly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home, and we hope to make it a yearly trip. There is no doubt in my mind that anyone who stays here will not be disappointed. Your furniture was so comfortable and everything was impeccably clean. We really felt "at home" in your home. Thank you for everything.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family group included 6 adult siblings with their spouses. We had plenty of room to spread out and a large, open area to eat and play games. The home was well-kept, well stocked, and thoughtfully arranged. We could not have asked for a better place to spend the week again. We would not hesitate to return at our first opportunity. Buck and Teresa were gracious and kind hosts! Thank you very much.

Tucked away in its perfect private Location with 5 star amenities, what more could we ask for? Beautiful home, reasonably priced, and very comfortable - the pictures do not do this home justice. Thanks again
