Why you should stay: Epic views from a seven-acre property near Shadow Mountain Lake.

  • Sleeps: 10
  • Minimum stay: 1-7 nights

Great for a family vacation, the Grand Lake Log Cabin features a lake, mountain views, and a hot tub. The cabin sits on a seven-acre property, and there’s not another building in sight.

The log cabin is over 3,200 square feet, offering space for up to 10 guests with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, there’s a hot tub, gas grill, wood-burning fireplace, horseshoe pit, basketballs, snowshoes, ice skates, sleds, and bocce ball. Inside, the house has WiFi, an X-box, shuffleboard, ping-pong, DVDs, toys, Netflix, and books.

Located in Grand Lake, the cabin is just 1.5 miles from the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. The nights are completely dark thanks to the lack of neighbors, so you’ll enjoy stellar views of the Milky Way from the porch.

Why you should stay: The poster child of secluded Colorado cabins.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Pets allowed: Yes

Enter through the private gate at this cabin rental and you’ll be transported onto 120 acres of pure seclusion. The ideal spot to take it all in is the backyard garden, a tranquil space framed by boulders and epic mountain views. Inside’s no joke, either: a hot tub, private theater and views in every room means there’s no bad place to spend your time.

“Basically like having a state park to yourself,” said Airbnb guest Kyle, “but instead of an RV or a tent, you get a decked out house to come home to.”

When you do manage to leave the house, there’s nearby hiking in Nederland or Gross Reservoir, or head west for skiing at Eldora Mountain.

The rest of the year’s perfect for exploring the property’s winding hiking and mountain biking trails.

“The home sits high on the mountainside and the views are unbelievable,” said Airbnb guest Stephen. “Very private and secluded, perfect to get away and unwind.”

The grounds are home to wildlife and a meandering stream, so even if you don’t leave the area, there’s more than enough to explore.

Why you should stay: Scandinavian-inspired A-frame on 3.5 acres in Grant, Colorado.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

The Danish concept of coziness runs deep in the Hygge Chalet & Sauna, a 1,400-square-foot cabin located just one hour from downtown Denver. Though there are neighbors in the area, the cabin’s situated on several acres of wooded land that makes it feel more secluded than it is.

The cabin’s flanked by a traditional Finnish steam sauna and two peaceful decks. Inside, the home’s open floor plan maximizes living space and thoughtful décor brings the hygge vibes to life — just another reason it was featured in Condé Nast Traveler.

Why you should stay: Storybook cabin bordering the Uncompahgre Wilderness.

  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Pets allowed: Yes

Head out from Lake City along Engineer Pass Road and you’ll eventually come across Thoreau’s Cabin, a breathtaking home overlooking Henson Creek. A stroll across the suspension bridge puts you at the door to one of Colorado’s most unique secluded cabin rentals, one that Airbnb host Chris says “occupied my dreams for years before I found it.”

Views of the San Juans — including Dolly Varden Mountain — are as impressive as you’d expect, and the lack of WiFi and cell service make the choice to be outside even easier.

Why you should stay: True seclusion at one of Airbnb’s best-reviewed cabin rentals.

  • Sleeps: 3
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: Yes

This private cabin’s located just south of Hartsel, nicknamed the “Heart of Colorado” because of its promixity to the center of the state. Seven acres of land at 10,000 feet make this cabin one of the most popular secluded getaways in Colorado – especially for those who’ve experienced its magic before.

“Second time staying at this cabin,” said guest Adriane. “Absolute treasure and a great way to spend my husband’s birthday. Hope to visit again next year.”

There’s a detached deck with fire pit, nearby sunroom with hammock and couch, and mountain views to last a lifetime. And the views don’t end when night falls: stargaze from the outdoor hot tub, or stay warm inside with the living room telescope.

Why you should stay: A hiker’s dream cabin in the Four Corners region.

  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

The only real concern with staying at Canyon Hideout Cabin, according to Airbnb host Mark?

“You may have wished you stayed longer.”

It’s easy to understand why: the property runs up to Canyons of the Ancient National Monument, a sprawling preserve with a higher density of archaeological sites (6,350+) than anywhere else in the country. Eight cliff dwellings are accessible within 45 minutes of hiking from the cabin, with countless trails and side canyons to explore.

The home’s surrounded by a grassy enclosure, a stark contrast to the desert-red backdrop. When you’re done hiking for the day, throw back a drink from a rocky outcrop overlooking the property.

12. Fawn Cabin

Why you should stay: Secluded but centrally located cabin west of Colorado Springs.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

Fawn Cabin’s hillside location affords sweeping views of the surrounding valley, best taken in by the hot tub and deck areas. Rock formations and boulders are scattered throughout the property’s five acres, where you can spot wildlife or enjoy the area’s slow-moving brook.

If you’re looking to explore the region, Fawn Cabin’s where you want to be: head north for Pikes Peak and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, or south for Cripple Creek and its historical attractions.

13. Off-Grid A-Frame

Why you should stay: Dark nights in a low-impact cabin miles from the nearest streetlight.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

This solar- and wind-powered A-frame cabin is located near Westcliffe and Silvercliff, Colorado’s first Dark Sky Community and home to Smokey Jack Observatory. Cell reception is bad, amenities are minimal and the hosts advise against staying if you need creature comforts – all of which make this one of the most popular secluded cabin rentals in Colorado.

When you’re not stargazing, you’ll enjoy the cabin’s funky decor, board games and wood-burning stove, the home’s main heat source. You’ll reach the cabin after seven miles of dirt road, so it is secluded, though there’s a neighbor nearby that provides free-range organic eggs when available.

14. Cascade Mountain Retreat

Why you should stay: Gorgeous log cabin that’s not always easy to get to — and that’s a good thing.

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Pets allowed: No

In winter, the one-mile dirt road leading to this stunning cabin is only plowed when seven inches of snow accumulates, and guests are required to have 4-wheel-drive vehicles and snowchains.

That makes it a perfect “get there and stay there” kind of cabin, though if you do leave, you’re not far from Colorado Springs and nearby attractions like Manitou Cliff Dwellings. The cabin’s on nine acres of forest and meadow, and a wraparound deck skirting most of the home offers views in all directions.
