Colorado is an adventure lover’s dream. Best known as the Rocky Mountain State, it has the highest number of peaks rising over 14000 ft. in the USA. It has ski slopes, lush forests, wildflower-strewn meadows, and cross-country tracks. Perfect for nature lovers.

All of this means one thing – that there is plethora of recreation and outdoor adventures awaiting in Colorado.

With all this nature, staying in a boring old hotel room just doesn’t cut the biscuit, even if you’re looking for 5* luxury experience. If you want a high-end experience, the best way to experience all this nature and get that top-notch service is to stay in a luxury cabin in Colorado.

Contrary to popular belief, cabins are not dank, dark shacks with outdoor toilets and no plumbing. In fact, some luxury cabins have such high amenities, such as hot tubs, pools and saunas, that you’ll find them even more homely than your actual home. How does that sound for your next vacation rental?

If this sounds excellent to you, then you’re in luck, because in this guide I have found the best of the best luxury cabins in Colorado so you can focus on planning your adventures. Let’s get started…

    Staying in a Luxury Cabin in Colorado

    colorado log cabin in mountains autumn fall

    To experience some of the best outdoor adventures and to make a memorable holiday, Colorado is for you. From skiing down snow-capped peaks to rafting in the river to just relaxing on the porch outside your cabin home, there is no better way to enjoy it than from your own luxury cabin.

    Whether you’re on a cozy getaway with your partner or bringing your family or friends along for a great escape, luxury cabins step it up a notch. Not only do they offer luxury amenities with high-end furnishings and fittings, but they are ideally located within nature, so if you love the outdoors, you won’t find any other accommodation closer to it.

    What to look for in a Luxury Cabin in Colorado

    Colorado’s luxury cabins are second to none. The first thing you need to consider is location. Whether your preference is desert wilderness, forests with rivers, or valleys in snowy mountains, there is a luxury cabin for you. But make sure you choose where to stay in Colorado carefully, as cabins tend to be remote and so are far away from towns and cities. There are a lot of advantages to this, such as enjoying meaningful time together with your loved ones, but it also means that you need to stock up on supplies before you get there.

    Since luxury cabins tend to be more remote, you need to make sure your cabin comes with parking, as they will usually only be accessible by car – perfect for those on a Colorado road trip. Likewise, you need to check if the road is easily accessed with a regular vehicle, or if you need a 4×4. If you’re travelling in the winter, use snow chains. You should also check the reviews to see what the cell service is like.

    Luxury cabins usually offer great amenities like a hot tub, fast Wi-Fi (yes, even remote ones), full kitchens, and spacious rooms with entertainment options. What you look for in a luxury cabin depends totally on your preferences and who you are going with. But I would recommend you check what entertainment options they have, or what is nearby. Usually, you can always find fun things to do in Colorado, even in the most remote locations.

    So how do you look for a luxury cabin in Colorado? Easy. You search on sites like booking.com or airbnb.com with the right filters and choose one. But, this does require quite a bit of scrolling and separating the wheat from the chaff. If it sounds like too much work for you, don’t worry, because I’ve listed the best of the best below.
