Great House!

Just as advertised house was great and she was super available if anything came up

This property worked very well for our large family.

This property was very comfortable for our large family. Excellent large kitchen, The three floors allowed separation and minimized noise. Unfortunately, downhill skiing was marginal but Nordic skiing was good.

Christmas in Crested Butte

Thank you for the use of your spacious and well equipped mountain home. The snow on Christmas was a blessing and the skiing was Great! Your house worked out perfect for our Family Christmas! Thanks again

The Alpenglow is an incredibly big and spacious home. Comfortable, clean with all necessary ammenities

For our large family coming together to celebrate our youngest sons wedding, the Alpenglow was a perfect choice of a place where we could all be together and not be on top of each other. There were plenty of beds, great seating and table space, incredible cooking facilities. Everything we could have ever needed or wanted was there. While the chalet was a step back in time we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay immensely. It was exactly the right place for our family and their families. We would choose to stay at the Alpenglow again should we have the opportunity to do so in the future.

We love the Alpenglow Chalet!

This is a wonderful older house full of character. We've now stayed twice with a large group of friends, and we love the location, house, and the support we've received from the owner. The house has a great commercial kitchen that allows for you to easily cook for big groups, and so many rooms that multiple families can spread out. The outdoor spaces offer great views, and you have immediate access to both the ski area and nearby mountains for exploring. During our first stay there were issues with the plumbing, caused entirely by the city and construction of the path out in front. Although this was entirely out of the control of the owners, they were immediately responsive and went to great lengths to work with the property manager and help us resolve the issue. They were even ready to pay for additional lodgings at other locations, and were already making arrangements when the city was able to restore the water/sewer service at the last moment. I hope to stay in this house again, and encourage anyone looking for a beautiful, large location in Crested Butte to consider Alpenglow! Thank you!

Great place for a family vacation!

The Alpenglow Chalet was wonderful for our family of 16 for a ski trip during spring break. It is nicely furnished, huge kitchen with everything you need and then some, and the family room downstairs was perfect for teenage boys for video games and sleeping. Each family had a bathroom which was really nice and lots of storage. Cary was very helpful! Would highly recommend their Chalet!

Best house in CB!

This house has everything and then some! There is no place quite like it for a large group and it is walking distance to the mountain base! The kitchen is spacious and fun for a whole group to cook in! The bedrooms are all beautiful and seem never ending and the driveway can fit several cars for those traveling from different places! Love this house and I'm sure I'll be back for a third stay!

Dream rental

Exactly what we were looking for during the Alley Loop race: ideal house, perfect location, wonderful homeowners. Crested Butte is amazing and this is the ideal headquarters for winter or summer exploration. We'll be back.

The 70's ski chalet is awesome, I wish I had my one piece ski suit!

This was our home base for our wedding with many of our friends staying there. When we showed up the city was working on the new bike path in front of the house, which caused access delays. No worries until we found out they crushed the sewer line to the house, causing challenges for the folks prepping food and children needing to use the toilet. No worries, we still loved the place. The owners were wonderful, the city was very helpful and we can't wait to return with our friends for another fun time. The hot tub is classic, the copper above the fireplace is timeless, we didn't get a chance to enjoy the multitude of games available or the fireplace but we hope to again down the road. The kitchen is huge and worthy of any size group along with the many tables for large group dinners. This is a great spot for a group ski trip.

Fantastic, very large house for big family/friend gathering in beautiful Crested Butte

We frequent Crested Butte as a family and with extended family. We often rent in town as we love the town vibe, walking and biking everywhere, etc. This time we stayed in Mt. Crested Butte and had our extended family for a summer gathering, which meant finding a spot for all or parts of 5 families....ages ranged from 5 to 81! This is a wonderful home and a great location. Room for everyone, a fabulous kitchen, 2 huge family rooms, fireplaces, multiple decks, great views, quick access to trails, the mountain and the town of CB. The house is very well stocked with everything you need for cooking large meals, 2 large refrigerators, plenty of seating, multiples sinks, etc. The owners (Cary) were awesome to work with. They were prompt with communications and flexible. We all had a wonderful trip and we'd strongly recommend this house if you have a large group.

Matt P.

Wonderful house, lots of room, very clean, welcome feeling, and loads of amenities

We loved this house. We used it as "base camp" for our daughter's wedding. The huge kitchen and eating areas were perfect for creating a relaxing rehearsal dinner and morning brunch. Lots of living space, closet space, bedroom space, and bathrooms. We used the indoor hot tub and fire pit on the front deck. They were great! Everyone was very pleased to gather before and hang out after the wedding at this house. Our 18 month old grandson loved running around on the front lawn and playing with several of the toys at the house. We even found a cookbook that was written by the bride's grandmother!! Thank you!

Judy P.


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past spring break. The house had everything we needed and was close to the mountain and mountain square. We would definitely consider staying there again.

Kylie H.


Amazing house in an amazing location! Beautiful space perfect for a large group. Tons of private and public space, great kitchen...great everything!

Jacky B.

Great home!

This was a wonderful home for my ski trip with 7 adults and 6 kids ( from 7 to 18). Bedrooms and baths for each family, great kitchen supplied with everything you could want. A "stones throw" from the shuttle to downtown or the slopes. Gorgeous views from every window. Cary, and his wife, were the best - easy to contact and pleasant to talk to about anything. They bent over backwards to make our stay wonderful!

Susan D.

Perfect for a group setting

I rented this wonderful property for the bridal party of a wedding. There were 20 people in the party and everyone staying at the house was comfortable and impressed with all of the amenities. There was never a shortage of beds or bathrooms, fridge or oven space. Since most of the rooms have multiple beds, in them, it feels a bit like summer camp. That was perfect for our group.

We also used the house to host the rehearsal dinner, post wedding brunch, and several barbecues, with about 100 people mingling over breakfast. Again, no issues with space.

Cary was a fantastic host, promptly answering questions and making it a really enjoyable experience for us. Thanks for everything, highly recommended!

Michael M.

Great big house

Very well appointed home. Indoor jacuzzi was a hit with everyone. 2 outdoors gas fire pits were great too.

High quality towels. Large kitchen. 3 laundry machines, including 2 high quality front loaders.

House is very quiet at night.

Owners were flexible and easy to contact.

Highly recommended.

A Fantastic Home Away From Home

Our stay at this home was amazing. Even with such a large group (21), it felt like there was more space than we knew what to do with. It's location on the shuttle path to the resort made it simple to take breaks between ski sessions. The kitchen was stocked with every cookware and gadget we could possibly need and more. The hot-tub, living room, outdoor firepit and family room served as great gathering spots, while the bedrooms were nice and quite for those that needed a little R&R. Check-in and check-out was also hassle-free. You could certainly tell that the owners put in a great deal of effort to keep up the place and get it ready to settle down in.

Overall, we enjoyed every part of our stay here and would certainly recommend others stay here. The memories will last a life-time.


Warm, Comfortable, Everything you would want!!

This home was fantastic! Absolutely beautiful views of Crested Butte and surrounding mountains. The home has everything you need (and more) to have a thoroughly enjoyable vacation. My family went out for a ski vacation and had an absolutely fantastic time. The ski slopes are easily accessible using the free shuttle steps away from the front door of the chalet. Crested Butte is not crowded and the local shops, bars, and restaurants are top notch and friendly. The hosts, Cary and Regina Stephan, have really made this home inviting, warm, and comfortable with your pleasure in mind. Their love of life and desire to share the beauty of the area is evident in the care and attention to detail that is the Alpenglow Chalet. You will love this vacation home! We sure did!!

New Crested Butte Fan

We loved it here!

This was the perfect home for our Christmas family (plus a couple of friends) gathering. Four generations, ages ranging from 8-91, gathered here and had a wonderful time. We could not have asked for more. The kitchen was awesome, and all supplies were plentiful. Even with a large group the house is arranged such that no one felt crowded. The location makes town and slopes very accessible. We recommend Alpenglow Chalet without reservation, especially if you are looking for a 'home away from home' for a large group. Our family would eagerly return for another visit.

Carolyn A

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!!

Mountain Lover

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.

The VRBO Bear

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.

Goldie (Denver, CO)

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!

Eich Family

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.

The Odell Family

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.

Beautiful Views, Great Location, Spacious, Comfortable, Home-away-from-Home for Families and Friends

WOW! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. With a huge kitchen, two large living areas, multiple decks, and tons of storage, it is ideal for large families or groups with plenty of separate spaces to spread out for some privacy and enough room to come together for meals, playing games, watching a movie, sitting by the fire, or just hanging out. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms generously sized and welcoming. We had everything we needed for a wonderful time together. The large indoor hot tub was a perfect 104 degrees, and unwinding in front of the crackling fireplace made for a very satisfying end of the day.

The location is remarkable, too -- 360-degree mountain views less than a quarter mile from the Crested Butte ski area… a short drive, shuttle bus ride, or refreshing walk! It is perfect for ski vacations, family holidays, reunions, exploring the area's wildflowers, hiking, biking, fishing, or just relaxing and taking in the breathtaking scenery that is all around. Between exploring and kicking back, we also enjoyed watching the fox that visited the yard, had fun building a snowman, and admired the lovely sunset and alpenglow (the rosy reflection of the setting sun on the mountains). We made some great family memories and are looking forward to returning with family and friends!!

Great for multiple families

We had three families stay together at the Alpenglow Chalet and we all loved it. Each family had their own bedroom with a bedroom to spare and everyone could spread out so when the kids were downstairs playing the adults were on the main level relaxing. And the kids went nuts over the indoor hot tub! The huge kitchen was great and saved us a ton of money over having to go out to dinner every night. We also really liked all the decks and the openness of the house. There was even enough room in the driveway for all our vehicles and our toys. We've stayed at other rental homes in Crested Butte before but we'll be coming back to this one!

Randy M.

We All Had A Fabulous Time!

Stayed for 3 weeks with over a dozen family and friends visiting during that time:
1. Very quiet--wonderful for lots of people.
2. The women really love the kitchen layout; also, you have good pots and pans--everything we needed!
3. Great closets.
4. We loved the house!

The Perfect Mini Family Reunion

We had a 3 generations family get-together at the Alpenglow Chalet. Crested Butte has some of the best hiking and mountain biking in Colorado and we took advantage! Staying at the Alpenglow Chalet put the topping on the cake. At the end of the day we could sit on the deck, grill dinner and look at the mountains we had just conquered! There was plenty of room in this beautifully furnished home to spread out and have personal time and space. The location was terrific! No need to drive the car, we could get everywhere by bike, bus or walk!

I look forward to returning with my hiking and wildflower groups.

Gorgeous setting - fabulous views - comfortable and spacious

We loved our visit to the Alpenglow Chalet! What a great place to use as a base for exploring and enjoying Crested Butte. It is perfectly situated with easy access to the ski resort, the town of Crested Butte, and on the way to world-renowned hiking trails. We loved the hot tub, the large family kitchen, and the breathtaking views.
This is a great place for family and friends to gather. You can spread out and have privacy while also having lots of large comfortable spaces for groups. It feels like home, if home were this spacious and beautiful! Happy

We can't wait to book our next visit!
