With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to think about how you want to celebrate with your spouse or significant other. While flowers and chocolate are a winning go-to, why not try something new this year like a romantic cabin getaway? These five cabins in Colorado say romance better than a Russell Stover assortment (though, it wouldn’t hurt to bring that along too!)
Idaho Springs Retreat
Tucked away on .5 acres in the Rocky Mountains, this quaint 600 sq. ft. cabin is fully equipped with a hot-tub, Smart TV, and a charming antique wood-burning stove. Whether you want to spend the day curled up in bed, wandering through Idaho Springs, or skiing at nearby Echo Mountain, this is your starting point. To top it off, you can hire your own private chef for the evening. Book here.
Cozy A-Frame Cottage
If you’re looking for a rustic getaway, this adorable A-frame near the Medicine Bow Mountains is exactly what you need. The only electricity in this cabin is for small uses, like charging your phone. Otherwise, candles and lanterns are provided, and the only available water is pumped from a well. With mountain views and watercolor sunsets, this cabin would make it a Valentine’s Day to remember. Book here.
Just west of the Rockies sits the town of Eagle, an adventurous getaway with access to hundreds of miles of trails and a bus service running to Vail and Beaver Creek resorts. Within the town, there are plenty of options for eating and drinking, including Bonfire Brewery, a must visit. Most houses in the area were built in the 1800s and add to the city’s charm. Book here.
The Cabin Through the Trees
Best part about this cabin? It’s completely disconnected from the world. Surrounded by aspens and pines and hidden from cell towers, this family-built cabin is the perfect romantic escape. It has giant windows, a wood burning stove, and sits only 5 miles from Cripple Creek, an old mining town near Colorado Springs. Book here.
The Stay Forever Cabin
Only 1 minute away from Purgatory Ski Resort, this is the cabin you’ll never want to leave. With a hot tub, Colorado corn hole, and Adirondack chairs surrounding the fire pit, you’ll probably start drawing blueprints for a cabin of your own. This location is ideal for hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowshoeing, and everything in between. Book here.
