We’re sharing six of the very best Colorado cabins to book your next getaway to!

Colorado is well loved by locals and tourists alike. And it makes sense! The crisp mountain air, endless recreation opportunities only matched by the views. Chill people, lots of dogs, and best of all – some really rad places to kick your feet up while you’re here.

Backcountry Aframe

Backcountry Aframe is located outside of beautiful Kremmling, CO and is absolutely one of the best Colorado cabins to stay in. The owners partnered with Den Outdoors to create this fresh, modern Aframe that is as crisp & bright inside as it is dark & moody outside. If design is important to you when choosing your stays, this one won’t disappoint. The open concept floor plan (peek the master loft bedroom right up from the kitchen!) makes the Aframe feel much larger than it is. It’s got two bedrooms & bathrooms, a stocked kitchen, gorgeous living space, and an oversized deck for dining, cooking, and lounging. It’s surrounded by aspens & shrubbery that are gorgeous in the fall, so if you can plan for a long weekend in September or October you’ll surely fall in love!

El Alma Aframe

Located in beautiful Placer Valley just outside of Alma, Colorado, the El Alma Aframe is quaint, beautifully styled, and perfectly located. Whether you’re looking to hole up for a few days or want a spot close enough to skiing and amenities yet still quietly away from the hustle, El Alma is it. El Alma is a smaller cabin, so it’s best for couples or a small family (think like 4 of ya), but with a fully stocked kitchen, a hot tub in the back, and a front patio to take in the views of the Mosquito Range you’ll have everything you need. Just minutes from Alma & Fairplay, two super cute little towns (shhh don’t tell anyone our best kept secret), or a beautiful 30 minute drive over Hoosier Pass. Just heads up – you’ll want a 4WD in the winter for both the driveway and your drive to and from the cabin.

The Fairplay Cabin

The baby behind Breck Cabin Company‘s owners, Jesse & TJ, the Fairplay Cabin is such a treat. It’s dog friendly and oozing with masculine, quintessential Colorado mining town vibes. We love the dark exterior, don’t you? The cabin itself is constructed from multiple old mining cabins, so the charm and imperfections are endless – which is just part of what makes it perfect. The Fairplay Cabin has two cozy bedrooms & a living space that’s sure to spark hours of conversation. This cabin is located in the town of Fairplay and is walkable to parks, shops, restaurants, and grocery. We’d live here ourselves if they’d let us – and fun fact! – this cute cabin was Jesse & TJ’s personal home until very recently when they upsized. You know it’s special.

Pine Cone Cabin

The Pine Cone Cabin is another property with Breck Cabin Co, and it’s a beauty. This is an authentic log cabin with high ceilings and a wood burning stove with a gorgeous stone surround. It’s masculine in style and beautifully furnished, but without any sacrifices to it’s coziness. Located in the Valley of the Sun neighborhood outside of Fairplay, CO, it’s quiet & tucked away – perfect for a long weekend of rest. The VOS neighborhood is also where we live, so it’s extra special to us! There are beautiful hikes and endless views and moose. Pine cone is perfect for a larger group, as it has room for up to 8 guests! There’s a fully stocked kitchen, game room, & decent wifi, giving guests the opportunity to disconnect to reconnect. 4WD is recommend for this neighborhood. Don’t make us come pull you out of the ditch. 😉

Quartzville Cabin

This beauty is expected to be ready for its first guests in late Spring 2023, but wow, it’ll be worth the short wait. Situated at around 11,500′ elevation outside of Alma, CO, it’s beautifully snowy from October through May. It’s the perfect winter retreat. (But will be gorgeous in the summer, too!) There’s a hot tub and dining area on the back deck, adorned with market lights & surrounded by towering pines. The cabin itself is tastefully designed in a mountain modern style – our fave. The owners are remodeling the bottom floor with plans to add an additional bedroom, bathroom, and open living area with a roll-up door to allow for opportunity to enjoy the fresh air. This cabin will also allow very small elopements, like this one! So, hint hint. Hit us up!

Sunset Point Cottage

Finally, wrapping up our best Colorado cabins list, we’ve got Sunset Point Cottage, on Lake Granby, CO. This one is a little different than the rest of our list, but could easily be at the very top! It’s a completely reimagined old boathouse turned home. You wouldn’t believe the “before”. Owned by the same people as Backcountry Aframe, you know it’s full of smart & accommodating design. A great short term rental can be both gorgeous AND make sense for both its owners and guests. This one is exactly that. Beautiful lake & mountain views, three bedrooms (including a bunk room!), and an open concept main space make it the perfect getaway for a couple or family. We love the clean, Scandinavian style, and know you will, too.
