Make Yourself at Home in Your Alma Vacation Home

If you are searching for the perfect vacation destination on the mountains where you can retreat from the cares of daily life and enjoy a slower pace, look no further than beautiful Alma. Alma is a very small mountain town that is nestled between towering peaks and that is removed from the busy activity of urban life. The best way to experience all that the Alma area has to offer is by staying in a beautiful mountain rental home. These vacation rental homes provide you with many of the amenities that you will not find in a cramped hotel room, and this includes a fully-equipped kitchen, a dedicated parking area, private bedrooms, spacious living areas, decks with mountain views and much more.

Outdoor Recreation

In an around Alma and the south-central Colorado area, you will find an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. This Rocky Mountain town is situated just south of Hoosier Pass and just north of Fairplay amid the beauty of towering mountain peaks. Here, you will have ample opportunities for hunting, fishing in area lakes and rivers, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and more.

Attractions

You can rent a vacation home in Cripple Creek, Alma or other nearby areas, and you will love the fact that there is so much to see and do in the area. Alma is a reportedly haunted town, and many people love to tour the area cemetery with the hopes of seeing a ghostly figure that is reported to haunt the area. You can also tour the famous Sweet Home Mine or visit nearby communities of Fairplay, Breckenridge, Leadville and more for shopping and sightseeing in these small mountain towns.

Nightlife

Alma itself does not have a robust nightlife, but there is plenty to see and do in the nearby areas after the sun goes down. For example, in nearby Cripple Creek, you will find a host of casinos, including Bronco Billy's Casino, Wildwood Casino, the Century Casino and others. There are theaters and live shows in Fairplay, Breckenridge and Cripple Creek. Likewise, there are delicious restaurants that serve everything from modern Asian cuisine to mountain barbecue in these and other nearby towns.

Weather

Alma can be a rather chilly place to visit, and this is because it is the highest incorporated town in the United States, sitting at an elevation of 10,578 feet. It is also located in a valley between three peaks that rise more than 14,000 feet above sea level. When you pack your bags to visit Alma, you may consider packing warm clothes and dressing in layers so that you can be comfortable as you travel to areas that are both higher and lower in elevation. Keep in mind that this area has a low humidity level with a continental climate. It can receive many feet of snow during the winter months, but the summers can be rather dry and pleasant. Many days during the winter have highs that do not rise above the freezing mark, and there are many days during the summer when the temperature may reach into the 70s or higher in some cases.

How to Get There

Because of its high elevation and removed location, the best way to get to Alma is via car. You can drive into the Denver area and rent a car to make it the rest of the way to Alma, or you can drive your own car. When traveling to Alma from Denver, take Highway 285 southwest into Fairplay. In Fairplay, turn north on Highway 9 to travel the remaining distance into Alma.

Care must be taken, but it is lovely and fascinating. The site gives the feeling of privacy and is just beside and below the bridge to Westport Island. Having spent the majority of our life on or adjacent to the ocean, we felt close to home. The cottage is immaculate and comfortable and the kitchen is fine. Our only problem was that six out of seven of the recessed light fixtures had burned out bulbs and lamps are at a premium, so reading after dark was difficult to say the least. Consequently we found it uncomfortable to be there after dark and left one day early. We hope the bulbs will be replaced prior to the arrival of subsequent visitors. The deck is a fine place for morning coffee or afternoon Happy Hour. The location is also ideal for visiting our long time friends in Wiscasset and on Westport Island.

We were close to so many places and so comfortable when we returned. The views from the deck were spectacular; I could have spent the entire week just relaxing and soaking the beauty in! I highly recommend this home to anyone. My only complaint: One week wasn't long enough to stay in this beautiful place!

In September, this location is very quiet, although the weather is still warm during the day and evenings are cool - good sleeping weather. There are so many things to see and do depending on what strikes your fancy..we love to kayak and the cabin comes with two great kayaks. Short-term fishing licenses are available and the fishing is great. We spent many, many hours on the lake without seeing any other boats. The view is great and we saw at least one spectacular sunset. Loved hearing the cry of the loons and seeing ospreys and eagles soar during our kayak adventures. There are several great restaurants with 15-30 miles driving. One can find a farmer's market nearby almost any day of the week. Fun places nearby, like Morse's Sauerkraut and Euro Deli, Oxbow brewery, etc. Recommend the Damariscotta Grill and Moody's Diner (for pie). Primo in Rockland for a special dining experience. As for the cabin, it is rustic in nature, but has many updated amenities and has a great "cottage" feel with nice, comfortable furniture. Doe snot have the hodgepodge, garage sale feel of many cabins we have stayed at over the years. The kitchen is updated and has plenty of standard items for preparing meals, including an outdoor bbq grill. Has a picnic table for outdoor eating, and a fire pit for socializing outdoors when the sun goes down. The description of the listing is accurate. The property was clean upon arrival and appears to be well-maintained overall, with obvious new upgrades. Natalie, the owner, is quickly responsive, although we had no need to contact her during our stay. We would recommend this property. The only thing we wish this property had was a back door that was a little more secure.
