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.

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!

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful cabin in Alma - we skied in Breckenridge and the drive was beautiful everyday over Hoosier pass. It has all the amenities that we needed! Would definitely rent this cabin again, the owner is great with correspondence and communication. Thank you!

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this lovely vacation home! It was exactly as advertised, very clean and had everything we needed for the week. Any questions we had were quickly responded to by Mr. Gartner. It was a perfect location as it was fairly close to Breckenridge, but just far enough away to enjoy the beautiful drive to get to where we were going. It was about 1 1/2 hrs from Canon City which is where we went to enjoy the Royal Gorge train ride and that was also a gorgeous drive. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone vacationing in the area and I look forward to going back!

Excellent Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 women, stayed for 7 days and we loved it! Everything we needed was there at the house, towels, linens and the home was very homey and comfortable. We had snow everyday and it was beautiful to sit on the couch and watch the snow fall from the many windows. Any question I had, Mr. Gartner called and answered immediately. Only negative thing I have to say is that I had to come back home to Texas. Wish I could stay there longer. Thank you Mr. Gartner for allowing us to stay in your lovely home!!!

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this cabin for 3 days and we LOVED it! The property was exactly as shown on the website and fully furnished with everything we needed for our stay. We especially enjoyed the sleds provided in the basement, the hill in the backyard was great for sledding.

It was very snowy during our stay, but the owner provided everything we needed to help us out. There were plenty of snow shovels and a snow plow in the garage, as well as, plenty of loose gravel we used to help the car get into the garage.

There is a wonderfully stocked kitchen, that was perfect for cooking big meals for the 7 of us that stayed in the cabin. We had ample room in the cabin to hang out and never felt like we were on top of each other.

I would highly recommend this cabin for anyone visiting this area, it was very centrally located to both Breckenridge and Loveland Ski area where we spent most of our time. It was a very clean and well taken care of cabin, and we can't wait to stay here more in the future.
