Jeannine and I have always been grateful for the many dear friends we've made and blessings we have received the last 30 years of living and working in this gorgeous setting as the owners of this special property. The Alps is our home. We still look forward to the coming of all four seasons, the changes in the landscape and the varying activities each provides. Boulder Canyon and Boulder Creek along with our picturesque canyon backdrop offer our guests stunning views and natural beauty year around, while only 5 min. from downtown Boulder, its restaurants and vibrant night-life.
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.

The Alps makes the perfect choice for the traveling executive. Accommodations are beautiful , private and very secure, and we provide an extensive list of business services. Our facilities are perfect for your next corporate meeting or retreat. Nestled among the pines in Boulder Canyon, the Alps offers visitors to Boulder luxurious accommodations as well as knowledgeable and attentive service. Within minutes of the inn are the University of Colorado, Boulder's Pearl Street and 29th Street pedestrian malls, downtown shops, restaurants, award winning library and museums.
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.
Fall & winter season bring crisp cool nights, hot cider, glowing fires in our fireplaces, CU football and basketball and some of Colorado's best cross-country and downhill skiing only minutes away.
