About Robert Gartner

I live in South Denver. I have lived in Colorado for 26 years. I have owned this vacation home since it was new, bought from the builder.

Robert Gartner purchased this house in 1999

Why Robert Gartner chose South Central Colorado

My home is very warm and comfortable. Since it's literally in the center of Colorado, you can easily get to any of the attractions that Colorado has to offer. A beautiful and short commute of 16 miles takes you to the ski areas. Drive a little - save a lot.

What makes this house unique

Alma is a wonderful town, the highest zip code in N. America. It has two eateries / pubs, a wonderful coffee and breakfast shop, the semi-world-famous AL-Mart, and several unique gift shops, and a liquor store.

Great place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you are looking to hike or ski in the Breckenridge area without paying the Breckenridge prices. The owner is very helpful and provides you with everything you could need at the cabin. Would stay there again without hesitation.

Couldn't have asked for anything more

  • 5 of 5

This house rental was perfect for our four wheeling trip to Colorado. Robert was very easy to work with and very informative about the location and the area surrounding the rental. It is a quiet, off the beaten track rental that delivered exactly what we needed for our family of five. The rooms are spacious with more than enough room for everyone. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more! Thanks for the great stay, very nice place to come "home" to for the week!

Robert is the perfect host. Clean house, cozy, well stocked. We loved the location being close to Breckinridge and also Buena Vista. Bedrooms are large, 3 bathrooms makes things super convenient, really well stocked kitchen. Sorry to leave!

Beautiful Area/Home

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely pleasant stay at Robert's home in Alma! This house is extremely spacious and has a beautiful view from out the windows, overlooking the mountain range. It is only 20mins from Breckenridge and made for a perfect skiing/snowboarding trip! Robert was very helpful and had good communication while booking. While Alma is small, it is a very warm town and has a mart and great bar/restaurant (South Park Saloon). We found our stay to be very enjoyable without paying the premium as if we would have stayed in Breckenridge. While you never want to complain about snow during a ski trip, it may be difficult to navigate up the road that the house is located on if you do not have a 4-wheel drive vehicle; Robert did mention that, and he was correct :)

Again, would definitely suggest staying here. Thanks!
