“Love at 1st sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We stopped here later in the evening unexpectedly, without reservations and not familiar with the area. We were able to get their last vacancy at what I believe was a great price, especially for a bed & breakfast. The place is older but quaint and it smelled like my Grama's house at holiday time (a good thing!) The room was huge, comfy and the bath amenities were nice. I wished we had more time to spend another night or two here and enjoy the different covered porch areas with seating and take in that smell of pine from the mountains. Breakfast was good and was served from 8 AM to 9:30 AM. There was a nice coffee/tea/juice bar available to guests and cookies at the check-in area. Jeanene, the owner?, was extremely helpful with maps and info about the area. Please note there is no cell service in the canyon area. This is either a good or bad thing depending on how you roll. Would definately stay here again at the right price.

Before we even arrived, we were impressed with how helpful and nice everyone at The Alps was when we inquired about restaurants and things to do in the Boulder area. After we arrived, we knew for sure we had made a great selection as to where to stay. We couldn't help but be impressed by the large fireplace when we first walked in, and our welcome was as warm as the fresh homemade cookies we enjoyed. Our room was amazing, from the gorgeous mission style furniture to the jacuzzi and the warm fireplace to the relaxing in-room music. Oh, and the key lime pie in the evening was superb! One of the best things during our stay, however, was the surprise of having a full breakfast prepared just for us since we had to leave before the normal serving time. We really appreciated and enjoyed the best-ever scones and quiche before heading out to the mountains! To top off everything, they even printed off recipes for us to take home to "try" and replicate. We're sure nothing will taste as good here in Missouri, though, without the service and atmosphere provided by The Alps Boulder Canyon Inn. --Gary and Laura

Amazing place that's super cozy, excellent service and a wonderful place to recharge the batteries of life... Tubs, Fireplaces and the Welcome Mat are larger then life. Great family owned / operated home where years were spent making sure their guests were taken care of and comfortable. We love it.... Thanks for making our weekend so great and relaxing

I wish i would have found the bad reviews before i went to stay at the Alps. The bad reviews are dead accurate. The place is very run down and not well cared for. The deserts that were provided were old hard cookies and some coffee, tea or hot chocolate you can make yourself. The crisman room was disappointing to say the least and the "fireplace" smoked terribly. There was only a uninviting shower in the old that had a yucky looking floor. The owner who was very nice was kind enough to offer me the use of a bathtub in another room since it was not busy, which i was grateful for. My son and i enjoyed the cat and the dog that roam the hotel. Breakfast was terrible except for the orange juice. When the owner served it was tolerable, but the second day when another person served she was unfriendly and what i assumed was microwaved quiche was barely warm and the scone served cold. After the breakfast myself and another person were trying to find someone at the front desk to check out. After waiting for several minutes i heard noise coming from a back room, that i assumed was the kitchen because i saw our food coming from that direction. The door was marked private but cracked open so i opened it to call for whomever was in there and was met with a disgustingly dirty sight of what looked like a dusty old garage piled high with junk in every space. Hardly room to walk through, tables and floor piled high with old dirty junk. I was so disturbed and disgusted thinking that my food likely came through that environment much less the possibility that it may have been prepared there. The girl who served our breakfast was in there and came rushing out as soon as i opened the door.

They offer a wonderful ski package that includes lift tickets. We chose Alps Inn for our honeymoon. It exceeded our expectations! It is such a beautiful place. The owners are absolutely wonderful and are so kind. It is a very warm, inviting and comfortable place. Our room had a fireplace and jacuzzi/bathtub, along with a King size bed. The breakfast every morning was wonderful, along with the endless coffee, tea, hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies. If you are considering skiing at El Dora or a neighboring ski resort, this is the best place to stay. Dennis and Jessica Bare (Houston, TX)

My wife and I stayed here for our 19th anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our stay. Great proximity to Boulder. Our hosts Jeannine and John were very helpful and personable. Homemade cookies and key lime pie (which was fantastic). Even cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. Very rustic, ski lodge type feel which we really like. We have stayed at many B&B's and found this to probably be our favorite. Will be a repeat for sure!

I found this B&B to be very peaceful and rustic. Quite charming and the staff was pleasant and helpful. Conveniently located just west of Boulder yet up in the canyon with a remote feel. I'd stay here again!
