Cabins are available throughout Colorado, and especially in the more rural destinations like Steamboat Springs and Buena Vista, they are a fantastic way to enjoy the countryside without having to “rough it” completely. Accommodations can range from rustic, single room cabins with nothing more than a few beds to large, fully furnished cabins with a kitchen or kitchenette and several bedrooms.
When reserving a cabin, be sure to do your research and ask lots of questions – the wide range of options means you’re sure to find one that suits your needs, but you’ll want to make sure that your reservation matches your expectations. Plus, your needs might vary depending on whether you are planning lots of outdoor activities, want to go to a nice dinner and a show, or are hosting a family reunion.
You’ll want to know before you reserve what the cabin comes with. In particular, check whether you’ll have running water, linens, a private bathroom, a refrigerator, or a stove. You’ll also want to find out how many people the cabin can accommodate. Some Colorado cabins can comfortably hold two to four people while others can sleep 20+.
Many cabins are run by property management companies or are attached to campgrounds, but you can also find a number of vacation rentals by owner which opens up your options for a much broader range of locations from right in town to remote and isolated.
If you’re visiting Glenwood Springs, cabins allow you to stay close to the renowned whitewater rafting, ziplining, and hiking without breaking the bank on a hotel. In Estes Park, you’ll find cabins tucked away in the hills and offering the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of town.
pitch a tent, nothing says Old West like staying in a Colorado cabin.
