ALPENHAUS is a gorgeous mountain home located in Valley of the Sun which just North of Fairplay and South of Alma in Park County. The home is only 22 miles from Breckenridge. This spectacular 3 bedroom and 3 bath home is on a wooded property with fabulous views of the white-capped mountains. The home is very secluded and you cannot see any other cabins around the home. This home has every amenity that you can dream of in addition to the beautiful wooded outdoor area. It is very common to see Moose, Elk, and Deer right on the property. The Valley of the Sun has several families of Moose and Fox. This is one of the few areas where  you are able to see Moose in their natural habitat.
The home has a spacious living area with a wood-burning fireplace open to the dining area and cheerful kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked and has custom cabinets and counter tops. There are 3 bedrooms. The upstairs bedroom has a king bed and there is a full bath and a loft with  twin bunk beds upstairs also. On the main level, there is another bedroom with a full size bath (walk in shower) that has a queen size bed. There is small twin bed perfect for a child along side the queen bed. The downstairs has a room with a Queen bed and a queen size sleeper sofa, also a twin bed that folds out.  This room is also a game room with a gas fireplace and a television along with a foosball table.  The great room has a memory foam queen sleeper sofa. 

The great room is a huge room with lofted ceilings and two-story windows that have views of the mountains and the forest. There is lots of comfortable seating as well as a cozy wood-burning fireplace, that has a blower to heat the home in addition to the central heating. There are 3 full baths (one on each level). The large dining has seating for 6-8 and there is also seating at the kitchen island. The outdoor area is also spectacular at this home with fabulous views, a gas grill, a large deck with comfy chairs and a fire pit. ALL WITH GREAT MOUNTAIN VIEWS!

The home has a Wind River Hot Tub for our winter guests to enjoy after a long day of skiing. The hot tub is on the deck and has great mountain views. Satellite TV, local phone and games are provided for the guests. The driveway is plowed in the winter and the roads are county maintained but 4-wheel drive is required in the winter due to the frequent snow storms in this area. We require 4WD from November through April.

Fairplay and Alma are the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin. It is a great area to call your "Base Camp". Activities include skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (winter too), ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more.

You are also required to have 4wd with good tires, or 4wd with chains if your tread is warn past 4/32 inch, during the winter months, November-May**
