READ OUR RAVE 5 STAR REVIEWS: Our vacationing guests, for the almost 10 years we've been listed with the HomeAway, family, have had genuinely positive experiences, easy booking arrangements and payment protection,

We believe our guests to be special people, people who appreciate being in a home surrounded by the beauty of majestic mountains. All cares seem to drop away,...with the feeling of oneness within its natural serene pristine setting, breathing in the clean crisp air, one cannot stay angry or upset about anything.

Our home features high beamed ceilings, spectacular panoramic Mountain views of 14,000+ peaks everywhere as seen through high picture windows, on 20 peaceful acres at the edge of a national pine forest.

We have well maintained roads, a conscientious caretaker, a cozy built-in sunken pit seating area, and an over-sized 'Hot-Spring' hot tub Spa on the wrap around sun decks. We also have a 3 person sled, a sled disk and a special 2 person sled with hand brakes. Our game room has a victorian pool table, victorian daybed, magnetic darts and mini foosball.

The beauty inside and out is unsurpassed. Even the laundry room has a view. and....2 hot water cold showers here!

Natures Entertainment:

Because there are no lights from other houses, or smoke from other fireplaces, stargazing at night from the hot tub is truly phenomenal. The Milky Way is really milky, laden with so many stars...

When it snows at night, the crystal snowflakes swirling on both sides of the 2 1/2 story stone wood burning fireplace are caught in the deck lights and it looks like fireworks on the fourth of July...

Hiking to the top of Mount Lincoln is awe inspiring; One can see Pike's Peak 80 miles away. The dirt road beyond the stocked fishing area will lead you to huge boulders with crashing waterfalls.

Be sure to look for our visiting red fox begging for food!

A Gourmet's Delight: We have every size pot, pan, omelet pan, spaghetti pot, wok, roaster, pyrex, cookie sheets, and muffin tins - anything you might need. We also keep the house stocked with 60 spices and herbs.

Nearby: In addition to skiing, hot air ballooning, snow tubing, white water rafting, horseback riding and more. For a nominal fee, guests can visit 2 local Recreation centers which have indoor pools There is stocked healthy trout fishing right in our Valley in a beautiful lake called Montgomery Reservoir, the clean clear water supply for Colorado Springs.

Why PLEASE PHONE RENEE 1(847)835-4854 chose Alma

We bought the land because of its inherent pristine beautiful surroundings and planned this mountain home for 20 years. Finally, we were able to build our dream chalet, to create a oneness with the beauty we fell in love with when we found this land. Every furnishing was purchased or handmade to create a unique painting designed for each room. No visiting our old furniture here.

What makes this house unique

Nestled in the mountains, yet we are located near wonderful stocked fishing and Summit county Breckenridge skiing, able to leave the masses of people in town to come home to quiet serenity, to drink in the surrounding beauty with a cup of tea on the deck's log rockers or look out at the scenery while soaking in the steeping bathtub or on the deck in the huge hot tub. Our caretaker is available to help or repair, if needed, so, tho isolated you are not alone. ( By the way, Our speedy "911" first responders have a highly qualified outstanding reputation)

Beautiful and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 10 days at the chalet. The location was better then described. We woke up the first morning to the most amazing view of the mountains. It was private like we wanted but still only 10 - 15 minutes away from the store in Alma or another few minutes to FairPlay, Co. We enjoyed the short drive over Hoosier Pass to Breckenridge, including the stop to get a picture and snowshoe on the Continental Divide. The family room "pit" was a hit for everyone to relax, watch TV, read, nap, or enjoy a fire. There were even a few tournaments around the pool table. The hot tub was great to relax the muscles and watch the stars. Thank you Renee for sharing your retreat and your spices!

A gem of a home and a wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Renee, we loved our time in CO, and especially loved being able to start and end each day in your "perfect(ly) secluded home." During our visit we toured South Park City, rode Maverick's near Wolcott, pedaled bikes around Dillon Reservoir, hiked near your home and near Fairplay, and went horseback riding. Regardless of the day's adventure, your home was a perfect jumping off point and an even better ending point. The "pit" and hot tub provided relaxing and soothing respite from busy days, and being able to enjoy fires on cool summer nights was a special treat.

The beauty surrounding and the comfort within your PERFECT home, coupled with the things we did during our time in CO, made this a PERFECT vacation!

Thanks to you and to Roger, your man on the ground, for helping make our time so pleasant and memorable.

Relaxing, rejuvinating!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Renee for sharing your beautiful retreat with our family! We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub, (very) large couch and game room especially! The meadows surrounding the house dazzled us with amazing displays of wildflowers and the tranquility of the mountains can not be beat! Our children loved exploring all around the property and were fascinated by all the sights unfamiliar to the Midwest. Everything in the house was wonderfully appointed and the caretaker was very sweet and obviously very proud of the time he has spent invested in the house. We can't wait to visit again!

It really is Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

Your beautiful home was the perfect place to enjoy those magnificent mountains! I had never seen them before, and they were even more breathtaking than I had imagined. Your home had everything we could want. It was comfortable, husband cooked a fabulous supper almost every night in your wonderful kitchen. We loved the fireplace & the hot tub and, being from a humid climate, we especially appreciated the humidifiers! Very thoughtful. Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home with us!

Wonderful and private home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

It's a great home away from home. Very comfortable and in a lovely setting. We spent some time in the hot tub every night, enjoyed a few games of pool, and chilling out in front of the fireplace in "the pit". Our daughter's fiancee was thrilled that he could actually stretch out on the couch comfortably (he's 6'6"). It is a nice location if you want to get away from the overly-touristy Breckenridge scene. Quiet and private! Thanks, Renee, for letting us enjoy your home!

Fabulous Get Away Mountain Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This mountain home was exquisite not only b/c of the breathtaking scenery all around the property but also b/c of the comfort & home away from home character it possesses. My husband, teenage boys & I were looking for a place w/adventure & lots of unique character--well, we definitely found it w/Renee's cozy home! We enjoyed many games of pool in the game room, several relaxing hours in the hot tub gazing at the mountains, trees, & stars, hiking the property, seeing the deer grazing out the kitchen window & let me not forget the famous "pit" for watching tv. The last night there we enjoyed a comfy gathering w/the fireplace a blazing! We were even blessed w/snow on our last day there! The activities of rafting,hiking, zip lining, & riding the maverick in Vail provided us w/great family memories. Maybe we can return someday to enjoy what the winter months have to offer? We hope that you too will consider a great get away at Renee's mountain home. Thanks again,Renee, for sharing your "baby" w/us.
