Awesome vacation home!!!

This home was awesome! Great location close to Mt. Crested Butte, nicely decorated and updated, plenty of room and outstanding views from every side of the home including the large deck. Easy walk to the ski base area. I will definitely recommend this home to other friends and family!!

VRBO Stayed Here

The Alpenglow Chalet was the perfect place for the VRBO bear and her family to spend a week exploring the mountains. Our favorite thing about the house was the proximity to some of the most beautiful hiking trails we’ve been on. Crested Butte definitely lives up to its reputation as Colorado’s wildflower capital of Colorado. We loved Cary and Regina’s suggestions for hikes and made good use of the many hiking guides they keep in the house.

Returning to the fully stocked kitchen, outdoor fireplaces and hot tub after hiking was just what we needed after long days on the trails. We continued to enjoy beautiful views of the mountains from the comfort of the home, as the place is surrounded by them. There is nothing like watching the sun set over the mountains from the front deck! I would highly recommend this house to friends and family and would love to return someday.

Spacious & Great Location!

Our family (2 grandparents, 2 parents, 2 girls [early 20's], & 2 teen-aged boys) just spent a week @ Alpenglow Chalet (summer season). It is spacious & had ample room for our 8 people; plus, each bedroom has its own bath. The family room (w/games, Wii system & movie player) was great for the boys (& would be for a variety of ages); the living room porch (w/outdoor, gas fire pit) was a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and evening sky. It's location is ideal, a few minutes from mountain base (walking distance) & short drive to town; the views are awesome . . . Maroon Bells, Crested Butte & Snodgrass. Also, communication is direct w/owner (rather than property manager), who is both helpful & informative. We would stay again!

Relaxing Family Vacation

We booked the Alpenglow Chalet for a party of 14 to celebrate my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary and am so thankful for that decision. My family has been to Crested Butte numerous times, but this was the first trip to CB for many in our extended group.

What a great house to base from! The owners have thought of everything. The home is so comfortable, well-detailed and laid out for a large group. Everyone had their own space, but there was plenty of room for us all to gather together for meals, games, etc. The kitchen is huge and well-thought-out, the bedrooms generous in size, and the views from every window can't be beat.

We spend a few weeks every year in CB, and I can definitely see us spending that time at the Alpenglow Chalet again, summer or winter. Thank you for offering your beautiful home for rent. We'll be back!

Guys' Ski Weekend

We rented this house for 8 guys for a 3 night stay. The place was perfect. Everyone had their own bed with some others to spare. The house is in great condition, and the kitchen is perfect for large meals. Bus service made it easy to get to and from the ski hill and in and out of town.

Even nicer than anticipated!

We have a group of 8 old timers (66-77 years old) who have been getting together for an annual ski week for a long time. The Alpenglow Chalet has LOTS of room and is very well equipped. The kitchen is particularly amazing--huge and two of everything you need (electric and gas stove, two toaster ovens, etc.). Location is very close to the ski area and only 3 miles from the quaint town of Crested Butte. Carly was very helpful answering questions. Besides the downhill skiing with great snow and lack of crowds, there is outstanding cross country available. Use the Nordic Center's trails and the trail north to the old mining town of Gothic and beyond toward Aspen. One slight problem: The garage was tight and getting out on the main road (Gothic) was blind due to huge snow drifts blocking the view. This is a gorgeous area, and I hope to come back soon.


Perfect location and accomodations for multiple families

We had 22 people (5 families) all under one roof, and it worked out perfectly! The kitchen and dining room were huge, so cooking and feeding this crowd was easy. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to provide privacy and comfort for us all. An indoor hot and two car garage was a big bonus. The location was excellent too, as we could walk to the bus stop that took us to snowshoeing or into town.

I highly recommend this property for multiple families looking for comfort, excellent accommodations, space, and amenities!


A truly amazing place to relax & enjoy all Crested Butte has to offer.

My family was blessed with the opportunity to join our best friends for a four day getaway at the Alpenglow Chalet. I can't even begin to say how much fun we had this past weekend! Together there were 5 familes with kids, 22 in all, and there was more than enough room for everyone. The boys took over the basement, each family had their own rooms and the girls took over one of the larger bedrooms. The kitchen is setup to feed an army and it did Happy We all loved our rooms (very very comfortable), the decor, and the VIEWS!!! Some of us went skiing, some of us went snowshoeing and some just hung around the house, but every night we all got together like one big family for good company, good food and lots of fun.

There is a shuttle bus that will take you to the ski resorts, the snowshoeing trails and into town, we parked our car the day we got there and forgot about it all weekend. Crested Butte received 7 feet of snow the week prior to our arrival, what a beautiful place buried under so much snow, the views were spectacular and the snowshoeing even better. I can't wait to see this place again in the summer.

If you are looking for an amazing place to get away with your family or friends I highly recommend the Alpenglow Chalet, the owners are AWSOME, and I felt like this place was truly a home away from home.


Great Multifamily Getaway!

We had five families (22 adults, teens, and preteens) spend a wonderful 3-day Valentine’s weekend! The house was plenty big enough for all of us. The spacious kitchen accommodated meal preparation for the entire group with two of everything – stoves, ovens, and refrigerators! The living room on the main floor is spacious and cozy as is the recreation room downstairs. And there’s a hot tub!

And, the location is beyond convenient! Just past the end of the driveway is a bus stop to Mt. Crested Butte. From there you can hit the slopes, or catch another bus into town to hit the many shops or one of the 45 restaurants and bars! Each bus ride is only a few minutes, and they run every half hour.

If snow sports are your thing, the skiing is phenomenal, and there are plenty of trails for snowshoeing. Plus, there’s a nice ice rink in town.

And, it's not just for snow bunnies. The area is beautiful throughout the year. Several of us are already planning to go back in the summer during the wild flower season.

If you’re looking for a getaway that is cozy enough for two, but easily accommodates a much larger group, this is the spot. The panoramic views are phenomenal, the accommodations are comfortable and inviting, and the hosts have pretty much thought of everything so you can focus on having fun!

Excellent Multi-Family Vacation spot

My family visited this vacation home with four other families, in all there were 22 of us in the house. There was plenty of room for all of us and it really did not feel like there were that many of us.

The large kitchen helped in the ability to make the meals to support all of us and there was enough room at the dining room tables to allow for us to enjoy our meals together. The bus stop is right across the street and allows easy access to the resort as well as catching the bus into town from the resort. We felt very comfortable and relaxed in the house even with all the people in the house.

I would defiantly come back to this place when my plans send me to Crested Butte again. Especially with multiple families.


Wonderful Family Vacation

This is an amazing chalet to get away from it all. Would make a great place for a not too large family reunion. No matter if you come in winter, spring, summer or fall: this place is beautiful! The views are amazing, no matter what window you look out of. The kitchen rivals most restaurant kitchens. Two refrigerators, gas range, electric cooktop with griddle, electric oven, 2 microwaves and toaster ovens, and several coffee makers. We asked if we could be adopted so we could visit regularly.

Friends Who Ski

We had a great time in Crested Butte. This is our second time to come to Crested Butte. What made this time so enjoyable was the location to the bus route. You walked out the door, down the driveway, and across the street and you were ready to be picked up by the bus that came every half hour. The home has all the amenities you could want. Kitchen stocked well, even kleenex in all the rooms. There is plenty of bedding and comfortable beds for how many it sleeps. We love this place and will come back.
