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.

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.

Very pleased with my stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two kids stayed here for vacation. First of all, the house is great. Lots of natural light and well decorated. The owner provides everything and I mean everything. Towels, laundry detergent, everything you would need for cooking, nice grill, soap and shampoo, all linens and more. Owner did a great job communicating and everything worked out smoothly. He was very nice and easy to work with. The city , Alma, is small but it does have a well stocked grocery stall. The people at the store were super nice and I didn't mind paying a little bit more than I am use to. There is also a coffee shop with free WiFi access. There is soon much to do in the area. It is close to lots of 10, 12 , 14's. We took the kids hiking just up the road from the house and had some fun with our four wheel drive and a more scenic drive. We had some beautiful view from our several bikes. We also visited a few other national forest in the area. The house is close enough to Colorado Springs for day trip and Breckenridge is really close. It is also not to far from Denver. We will be back again.

Hidden gem in the mountain footsteps

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible home and owner. We spent a week in August 2014. It is in the footsteps of 6 14ers, a very close drive to Breckenridge over the scenic Hoosier Pass, walking distance from the funky bar and stores in Alma. You can tell that the owner takes pride in this property. My only recommendations would be to add wi fi as I had poor phone coverage on AT&T and needed to research trail maps and trip reports for hiking.
