This two bedroom and full bath residence provides you with ample space for relaxation after a long day of activities. The Alpen Den is located in the walk out lower level of the Alpen Haus (also on VRBO), has private access and offers a master bedroom with a king bed, walk in closet and separate outdoor access; plus a second bedroom with a king bed which converts to 2 twins if desired. There is a fully equipped kitchen which provides you the freedom of eating in if you’re unable to muster the strength to try one of the many fabulous restaurants in the area. Relax in the living room and enjoy cable TV, wireless internet, or simply unwind with a good book. A private patio along Four Mile Creek is the perfect place to view Mt. Sopris during the day or star gaze at night.

***Note - due to our location outside of town, we are only subject to 3.9% state and county sales tax vs. the 11% tax required at in town properties.***

This cozy apartment is the perfect home away from home for your Glenwood Springs vacation. The Alpen Den is a short drive to Glenwood Springs and many of the attractions the Roaring Fork Valley has to offer. Plus it is only about 10 minutes down the road from Sunlight Mountain Resort.

Why stay in town when you can enjoy this relaxing retreat which shares nearly 6 acres of wooded private property along Four Mile Creek. Accessible year round, The Alpen Den has it all.

Glenwood Springs is truly a wonderful vacation spot with all its available activities. We are clost to alpine and crosscountry skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, biking, rafting, fishing, shopping, or just soaking in the world famous hot springs... you’ll never run out of things to do! We are a pet friendly property and welcome both short and long terms stays.

***Special Note for winter guests - All wheel drive or four wheel drive autos are required when staying in December, January, and February. Difficult conditions may also exist in November and March. We have the driveway professionally plowed and generally do not have problems. However, inappropriate cars can and do get stuck as elevation changes exist on the driveway as well as the possibility of slick ice and deep snow. Stuck cars do cause problems as the driveway services three separate properties. You are required to provide information about the cars that will be driven during the winter. Guests that become stuck are responsible for all associated costs.***

Mark Spidell purchased this condo in 2010

Why Mark Spidell chose Glenwood Springs

This house is just a short walk from our home. This allows us to be nearby if the need arises, but far enough away to provide privacy. With great views, the peaceful sound of the creek and the proximity to the great outdoor adventure, this property is truly special.

What makes this condo unique

This property is special because of its location and unique design. It is close to town but also feels rural. You can adjust your plans easily as it is near many different activities. Awesome snow at Sunlight...10 minutes away. Want to go river rafting...10 minutes away. Awesome snow in Aspen...45 minutes away. Want to going for a bike ride...leave from the house or drive a short distance to some awesome trails and paths.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Alpen Den was very cozy, quiet and peaceful! Coffee with the sunrise was breathtaking. We enjoyed a wonderful visit and plan to bring our families next time. Thank you for a wonderful experience and opening your beautiful paradise to us!

R&R

  • 5 of 5

The Alpen Den was perfect for the 4 of us! It had everything we needed and more than what we wanted. The surrounding areas were beautiful. The house was close enough to everything from groceries, restaurants, and activities. The property owner, Mark, was great and responsive. It was definitely nice to come back from full days of activities to a comfy home. Thank you so much!

Wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family had 4 of the available spaces so we were "altogether". The accommodations were excellent, clean, attractive, well appointed and very "homey". Would consider going back in the future if all goes well. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay. Mark was wonderful to deal with ... even met his handsome son. :-) Memories will linger for years!
