Canyon and Boulder Creek along with our picturesque canyon backdrop

There is no more perfect setting for that special
or romantic getaway than the Alps. Our evenings are cool, so ward off
the chill in front of a cozy fire in one of our massive stone fireplaces
while you enjoy our hot spiced cider, fresh-baked cookies and our evening
desserts. Then snuggle privately in your room under your warm and fluffy
down comforter in front of your own working antique fireplace.

Named one of Colorado's and the West's most romantic and distinctive inns,
the Alps hosts 12 unique guest rooms, each furnished with authentic
"Mission" and "Arts and Crafts" furnishings, stained
glass windows, and a beautiful working antique fireplace. Many of the
rooms have the Alps' signature private whirlpools for two and French
doors leading to our gardens and patios or to their own private porches.
All have private attached baths, walk-in showers, rain-shower heads,
hair dryers and L'Occitane bath and spa amenities.
A historic landmark, the Inn was originally constructed in the 1870's as one of
Colorado's first resorts for those traveling to and from the mining
districts on the historic Switzerland Trail Railroad of America. Completely
upgraded and re-appointed, this luxurious Inn now stands as a proud
link between Colorado's"Wild Frontier" past and the promises
of its glowing future.
The Inn's views are of Boulder Canyon's stunning
rock formations and forests, Boulder Creek and native wildlife.
The Alps appeals to couples looking for a romantic get-a-way, business executives
looking for "high-tech" business amenities in a private and
retreat like setting and those who enjoy Colorado's beautiful mountains
and active outdoor lifestyle.
Spring & summer are beautiful in Boulder Canyon. Enjoy hiking, bicycling,
birding or fly fishing outside your door. Take an evening stroll and
watch deer and other wildlife along the Boulder Creek path. Spend the
day visiting one of our many summer festivals or enjoy Shakespeare under
the stars at the Mary Rippon Theater. For those who just want to sit,
relax, or read a favorite book, come enjoy one of our gardens with their
mountain views or our many common areas located within the inn.
Located just outside Roosevelt National Forest and less than 30 minutes from
Rocky Mountain National Park, let our inn-keeping staff help you plan
for a romantic picnic or tour of these beautiful mountain parks.
