Alpine Hideaway is an excellent place to stay! My husband and I stayed at the Pond View Cottage for 2 nights to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The cottage was immaculate, cozy, decorated beautifully and well stocked. The hot tub on the deck was great in the cool fall evenings and the fireplace added a great romantic ambiance. I had ordered in-room massages and the grill your own steak dinner as special surprises. Those were awesome as well! Only felt marginally guilty as we were grilling the steaks with the neighboring cows watching. The view of the pond was peaceful, can watch the fish jump. Saw about 7 or 8 deer in the evening. Melissa and Ray are excellent hosts, very friendly and had a wealth of knowledge about the area attractions, directions and restaurants. The evening social hour was fun, with wine or beer tasting as well as lively conversations with fellow guests and hosts. Highly recommend the breakfast at the inn. Melissa is a wonderful cook and creative! My husband and I highly recommend the Alpine Hideaway Cottages for a getaway. Everything you could want right there with lots to do in the immediate vicinity. Great hiking at Crabtree Falls, a moderate hike with great scenery on the way up.
