We stayed 3 nights at Alpine Village in early September. The facility as a whole was really nice. The grounds were well-maintained, the "hot pool" was great, and watching the moon rise while sitting by the river was a highlight of each evening. On our first night, a large bull elk came through the property, and he was fun to watch. The staff was always very friendly.
As for our cabin...BE AWARE: if you book a "One Room Cabin", these are the property's original cabins (circa 1940). They are kept up, but are just really old. When we first entered our cabin, we were overcome by the smell of 70 years worth of fireplace use (the smell of campfire was really potent in the room). The bathroom had been updated, but as a whole, the cabin is what you might expect from a 70 year-old room. the mattress also wasn't so great, and we didn't get the best sleep. If we had known this, we would have spent just a little more for a newer cabin.
On the whole, it was a nice place, which we would stay at again if ever in Jasper...just not in a One Room Cabin.
