Alpine Creek Cottage was originally built on the 1920's with a small room added in the 1940's. It is a quaint little cottage tucked right up against Alpine Creek. Alpine Creek runs through Alpine and serves as a thoroughfare for wildlife, including deer, javelin, and fox. All of which we have spotted on many occasions. So an appreciation for wildlife is a good thing if you are considering booking this room.

The space
After nearly two decades of disuse we have restored the Cottage, taking care to keep as much of the original building intact and using recycled materials where possible. There is a wraparound porch and backyard with fire pit in a natural, creek side setting. The outdoor areas are shared by the guests of the two units.

Guest access
The Cottage includes a private sitting room with a table and chairs and a sofa, for relaxing and spending time. Also included in with this room is an outdoor, closed in porch, where we have set up a tea and coffee area. Mornings and evenings are quite lovely. We keep a space heater in there in the winters, and the sunlight coming in through the windows makes this space cozy and warm during the winter months.

Other things to note
The bathroom in this room has a recently installed glass shower with a curved door in it.
This is for the ladies...nothing is more heart breaking or disappointing than discovering makeup and mascara on our hand towels, towels and cotton pillow cases. Makeup is not easy to get out of fabric and requires harsh chemicals to remove it. If it's waterproof mascara, it won't budge. Permanent stain. Please take the extra step of using the makeup remover sheets provided to remove your makeup instead of using the towels. We would reeeeeeeealy appreciate it!
Also, because we love our wildlife, and try not to disturb them too much, domestic animals are never allowed at the cottage. This is for the safety of your pets as well as our local wildlife.
Please carefully read our list of amenities, house rules, and cancellation policy before booking. Thanks so much!
You must also acknowledge
Amenity limitations - Each room is provided with a simple coffee and tea set up. Neither room contains a working stove, so there is no way to cook meals at the cottage.
Potential for noise - We are located on a main road, so sensitivity to traffic noise should be considered before booking.
Some spaces are shared - Each room has its own private spaces as described in the listings. No one has access to them but you. However, all outdoor spaces are shared
