The Alpine House is a small, 22-room hotel located just two blocks from the main square in town that is intimate as well as convenient. The owners, Hans and Nancy Johnstone, both former Olympic athletes, are accommodating and friendly. The Swiss-chalet ambiance the couple has attempted to recreate is incredibly cozy. Feel free to lounge around in the library while you peruse a novel and watch the snow fall. If you need to be connected at all times, beware: Wi-Fi is spotty. But, if you enjoy being disconnected for a little while and not checking your email, this place is perfect. Before heading to the slopes in the morning, check out the organic continental breakfast in the dining room during the winter, and outside during the summer. The homemade granola and pastries are out of this world and the coffee bar is second-cup worthy. Throughout the day, the hotel provides great snacks, like cookies in the afternoon and cheese and crackers at night before bed. The rooms are quaint, but the beds are comfortable and noise is kept to a minimum even though the place is fairly close to the main Jackson drag.
