About the property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, sleeps 6 adults

From one of our guests (Somerset, England):

'We spent a fantastic week in this home. The house itself is excellent in terms of location, setting, decor and equipment with many thoughtful touches that added to the overall quality of our stay. The bedrooms are spacious, the den is excellent for children wanting their own space and the lounge and dining room make for a relaxed setting for a holiday. The house setting is picturesque whilst it is well located in relation to Estes Park...I wholeheartedly commend this home to anyone wishing to visit Colorado.'

The AlpineHaus is situated in the quiet, gated Blue Spruce Village Victorian community that has the Big Thompson River running through it and is ¼ mile outside the Estes Park city limits. The Rocky Mountain National Park Beaver Meadows Visitor Center and Park Headquarters are two miles from our vacation home and it is just a five minute drive to downtown Estes. The AlpineHaus is only ¼ mile from the original early 1900's entrance to the Park and a trailhead that leads to the Bear Lake/Moraine Park area, on the edge of the YMCA of the Rockies Conference and Activity Center.

Built in 2002, our three-level townhome has 2200 square feet of living space. The main level offers a greatroom with a stone fireplace (gas burning) and opens to a large deck with a picnic table and gas grill. Oak wainscoting and large windows adorn the greatroom and separate dining area with a large dining table. The fully-equipped kitchen and dining area have wood floors adding to the warmth and charm of this beautiful home. The main level greatroom also has a large LCD TV with a DVD player. Sit on the large deck to relax and view the elk, an occasional bear and other wildlife!

The upper level has three large bedrooms and a loft area with a game/puzzle table. The master bedroom has a king-size pine log bed and furnishings with a large bay window and jetted whirlpool tub in its private bathroom. The second bedroom also has a pine log queen bed and furnishings, two dormered windows and a private entrance to the second full bath (which also opens to the loft/hall area to share with the third bedroom). The third bedroom has a queen sized bed and a twin sized bed and dormered windows - perfect for a third couple or children.

The walkout lower level has a recreation room great for kids young and old with a LCD TV, DVD/VCR, video games, and patio area.

Walk fifty yards to the Big Thompson River for fly-fishing and relaxation. While our home is not directly on the river, the river runs through our private community and all owners and guests have access to common areas with picnic tables and seating areas.

Free Internet access via our broadband wireless connection (bring your laptop with wireless card if you need to check in at work occasionally or just want to surf the Net for various events going on in Estes and Rocky Mountain National Park while on vacation). Or perhaps you'll want to check the weather forecast prior to departing for a climb up Long's Peak!

The following are just a few more of the comments from our guest registry:

“It was great to come ‘home’ to this beautiful home each day. We travel the mountains every summer, and this is the best place we have ever stayed at!”

“One of the nicest places we have ever stayed in! You have a lovely home.”

'What a surprise to walk in your beautiful home!! Booking it on the internet was a bit scary but as soon as the door was opened, you could feel the warmth! A gorgeous setting and close to shopping, hiking and sightseeing. Can't wait to come back again!'

“We had a lot of wildlife here with a bear the first morning, deer and a fawn, beautiful birds…”

**Sorry, pets are not allowed and this is a no smoking residence**

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am so glad I chose your place to stay in over the others. My eyes lit up the second I walked inside your lovely home. We are here because my best friend is getting married this weekend. While other guests stayed at the Stanley, we are so glad we chose your place all to ourselves.

A comfortable, inviting home. A great place for making memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. The Alpine Haus was a great place to recover from hikes, play games and watch movies. Correspondence with Kathy and Conrad was informative and welcoming. We had a wonderful family vacation at the Alpine Haus!

Quiet home in Estes Park with ample amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this lovely home for a week and everything was perfect. We appreciated the two living spaces to spread out and my son loved playing the arcade games. Wifi worked great throughout the house and everything was spotless. Will definitely return again.

Lived Up to its Billing!

  • 5 of 5

I was influenced to rent this place because of all of the positive reviews it received through Home Away/VRBO. I was there for 19 days. Most of that was a pastoral sabbatical, but my family joined me over Memorial Day Weekend. I got to enjoy a snowstorm that dumped 3 feet of snow on Estes in late May--which was perfect, because I had no place to be. It also had a gas fireplace, but it would go out after a little while. Not sure why, so I didn't use it much. Alpine Haus had everything I needed to cook meals. It was very comfortable. And for anyone who may rent it in the future, I'm sorry that I have all the high scores on the Arcade Pinball game--remember, I spent a lot of time by myself! Cable TV, high speed wireless Internet--this place had it all. Once my family joined me, we got to enjoy some great weather (snow had melted by then), grilled on the deck and really enjoyed Estes Park and RMNP. I loved having a garage, especially after the snow! Conrad and Kathy are excellent hosts.
