Overview

Alma Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10-12)

This gorgeous custom log home just completed construction as of January 1, 2013. The beautiful slate floors, high vaulted ceilings, large windows, and state-of-the-art kitchen are just some of the high quality features. The great room has two-story windows to gaze at the white-capped mountains, stars, and beautiful views. The open concept of the great room, kitchen, dining area, and breakfast counter with a big screen LCD TV/DVD player makes this an ideal area for entertaining. Keep your car inside the attached 2-car garage for easy access in and out of the cabin. The home is tastefully decorated with Southwest décor, log accents and a pellet stove for warmth after that long day of skiing. The cabin is situated on the sunny side of Glacier Ridge so that you have views from every window in the home. The large wrap-around deck affords views of Colorado’s well known Fourteeners Lincoln, Bross and Democrat amongst the beautiful aspen, pine and massive blue sky of San Isabel National Forest. The Master Bedroom has a private balcony, queen bed and dressers, luxurious bath with rain shower head and big screen TV. Attached is the master loft with full length windows, couch with queen bed, sitting chairs, tables, desk, and telescope to view the crystal clear starry nights and mountain range. The main floor bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, and windows admiring the views both west and east. The third bedroom located on the lower level has a bunk bed with a Full Size top & bottom mattress and is a great set-up for kids! All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with plenty of room and comfort for the entire family including the dog. The game room features a foos-ball table, bumper pool table and comfortable black leather sectional couch for an evening of fun. The roads are county maintained but 4-wheel drive is highly recommended due to the weather conditions in this area. If you enjoy ATVing or snowmobiling, rentals and information are available from Fairplay to Breckenridge. Interested in snow skiing or snowshoeing? You can be on the slopes of Breckenridge Resort within 20 minutes or for a full day of skiing into the night, head on over to Keystone Resort. Copper Mountain and Vail Resorts are also another option that is easily accessible. There are several world-class fishing areas including Antero Reservoir, Spinney Reservoir, Eleven Mile Reservoir, and the Platte River. Thanks to our central location, you can take advantage of Colorado’s great outdoor activities, year round.

Exceptional stay with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5
We had a small high school reunion and traveled out here with eight adults, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is a sleek, modern log cabin with all the essential amenities (Stove, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and of course coffee maker.) The pictures of the view from the windows and porch do not do it justice. There is a neighbor next door but they cannot directly see the porch and are far enough away not to be a bother. We all stayed for the weekend very comfortably, and the only change would be better weather so we could see the stars at night. 10 out of 10 would stay here again

Great house in a great area!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (2 daughters, son-in-law, husband) enjoyed ourselves immensely during our stay at this home in Alma, CO. Well-appointed and room for everyone; the hummingbirds provide lots of entertainment for us! Remote area but within driving distance of some awesome places. Lots to do in the area from hiking to visiting Breckenridge, Leadville, Buena Vista. We would recommend to anyone considering a family vacation to this area of Colorado!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY - WE WILL BOOK AGAIN!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our 15th wedding anniversary at the cabin. Our goal was to go somewhere remote and do nothing but relax and enjoy a view. This cabin provided exactly what we were looking for. We really liked the fact that we were very close to Breckenridge yet not in the "busyness" of Breckenrigde. Enjoyed the hummingbirds! We had to make our own recipe batch to fill the feeders because there were so many of them! We will be back! ...and thank you for the bag of ice and extra ice trays, Tami...that was thoughtful!!!

Owner's Response: Again, Happy 15th Anniversary!! We're so glad that you enjoyed your anniversary at our cabin and look forward to having you again. No problem on the ice trays, I was happy to accommodate your needs and nothing is better than fresh ice tea on the deck while you watch the sunset!! Hope to see you both for your 16th if not sooner. :-)

vrbo review

  • 5 of 5
We had a really nice stay. Your home is warm and very comfortable. We found it to be very clean and well stocked. (well maybe could have used some more toilet paper, just in casers, ran a little low). The deck is great and the view is fabulous. The property is easy to find and has great access to the main highway. ( a plus for winter time). Everyone liked the rough edge on the kitchen granite counter top. Our only concern was that there was not any sort of instruction sheet as to what to do with the linens, towels and garbage like we have found in some rentals. I hope we did ok. Thanks for opening your home to strangers, however, we felt as though we were friends.

Cozy yet spacious

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay. The cabin was cozy yet spacious, The views amazing, and felt like we were at home. Every thing for a convenient vacation was handy. We loved the wood burning pellet stove and enjoyed watching dish network on the big screen tv. Tammi and Mark couldn't have done a better job making this cabin worth every minute spent in this mountain retreat. Thank you!
