Health and Safety: The Alpine Villa is located in a high-altitude environment which means guests need to take extra precautions to be safe.

Guests need to be extremely cautious when walking outside.

Weather impact on travel: What happens if the weather impacts our ability to travel to the Alpine Villa? We have no control over the weather, and therefore cannot be responsible for it. If your travel to the Alpine Villa is impeded in any way, it is your responsibility. It is rare that it snows so much that the highways or the Denver airport shuts down. When it does, however, there are generally alternative travel routes available. We suggest you check the weather forecast as time gets closer to your arrival date. See Weather Forecast. In the event I-70 closes, Hwy 285 can be an alternative route from Denver to Breckenridge. We also suggest driving a 4-wheel drive automobile if snow is in the forecast during your stay. See www.cotrip.org for current Colorado driving conditions.

Check-In/Checkout Time? Check-in time is at 4:00 pm; checkout time is 10:00 am.  If a different time is desired, day use may be requested depending upon adjacent reservations.

How many vehicles can park at the Alpine Villa? The Alpine Villa can accommodate up to 25 vehicles. The parking area is plowed in the winter as soon as practicable. Please do not park behind the garage area as service vehicles and the owners need access.

When do I need to pay for the accommodation? Dates are reserved upon receipt of 50% deposit and a signed contract.  The remaining 50% deposit is due 60 days prior to the reservation.

Cancellations: Cancellation will result in forfeiture of payments.  With a minimum of 60 days’ notice, payments may be moved to new reservation dates. 

What if we damage something? You will not be held responsible for normal wear and tear or minor accidents such as a broken glass. If we find something missing or broken after your stay, you will be charged our cost of replacement or repair.
