Down a dirt road in Jefferson, this A-frame chalet has panoramic views and serious Scandinavian vibes. It features wood paneling, a newly renovated kitchen and bath, a sleeping loft with a spiral staircase and a hot tub on the veranda. Located on three acres and stocked with books and board games, you won't belive you're only an hour and a half from Denver.

Go off-grid in the desert with this luxe tent. Inside it’s simple but comfy, with a big double bed and a plush velvet sofa. A short walk away from top bouldering spots, it's also near a permaculture farm that is developing sustainable living practices if you’re feeling sociable. Otherwise, soak up the peace and quiet and watch the sunset while swinging in your private hammock. 

You won't feel like you're in a shipping container when you take in the panoramic views of the Sangre de Christo mountain range from the wall-to-wall windows or the wraparound deck. The open floor plan has a mid-mod feel with a full kitchen, seating area, and a wood-burning stove. After a day of hiking or exploring nearby Salida, rest your weary bones by the outdoor fire pit or play around with the host's stash of yard games.

Lupine Village gives you the best of both worlds: you get the mountains and you get the lake at this collection of six cabins that's been welcoming adventurous travelers since the 1930s. The space includes a kitchen and a dining and living area and the decor carries a quaint, nostalgic lake house theme throughout. A shared fire pit seating area is perfect for s'mores and yard games – and you're just steps from Grand Lake's boardwalk village and outdoor recreation options.

Yurts have come a long way since they were built on the steppes of Mongolia. This one offers modern amenities that might surprise you: a compact kitchen, a full bath, a sleeper sofa and a queen-sized bed – plus it's bigger than most New York City apartments. The area is known for its awesome hiking, biking, and adventuring. Afterwards, soak off your aches and pains in the claw-foot tub.

Hike over the river and through the woods and you'll arrive at this actual treehouse that's supported by 100-foot-tall spruce trees. Despite being nestled in the forest, you'll enjoy a full kitchen, a bath with a stone shower, a sleeping loft with skylights to view the stars, and best of all, two tree-top terraces to relax in a hammock or by the fire. Situated on two acres, you'll be away from it all with the added bonus of being close to artsy Carbondale or Glenwood with its famous hot springs.

Love waking up to the sound of the river? This could be the cabin you’re angling for. Fishing fans will be in their element here: a river full on rainbow trout literally runs through the property. The cabin sleeps eight and has all the modern amenities with a tasteful twist of vintage items. Steps from hiking trails and a national forest, this cabin is also less than an hour from Denver.
