Full of all kinds of gathering places, from a spacious deck to cozy rocking chairs around the fireplace, this place is made for spending quality time with those closest to you.

The cabin comfortably sleeps 4, making it perfect for family getaways or small friend groups. 

There are two bedrooms as well as a pull-out sofa, plus a full kitchen where you can make your own meals.

Outdoor activities abound near the property. Guests can hike Kenosha Pass or the Colorado Trail, paddleboard at Jefferson Lake, or take a short road trip to nearby scenic towns like Fairplay and Bailey and the world-class Breckenridge ski resort.

But perhaps the best pastime is just enjoying the nature that surrounds this secluded spot. 

It’s not uncommon to spot elk, deer, hummingbirds, and other wildlife from the sun-soaked patio.

If you’ve ever dreamed of having an indulgent mountain retreat, this stunning home will more than fulfill those fantasies.

Find yourself tucked away in the foothills of the Mosquito Range mountains in the dramatic Rocky Mountains, with popular fishing spots, towering peaks, and world-class ski slopes practically on your doorstep.

Although the interiors are the epitome of cabin coziness, you’ll still have all the luxuries–a modern, fully-equipped kitchen, heated garage, and outdoor fire pit, just to name a few.

After days of hiking, a great selection of board games and movies is on hand for evening entertainment.

One thing to keep in mind before you book your mountain vacation: The road to this stunning cabin is quite rocky and difficult to traverse under snowy conditions, so a 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is necessary if visiting in winter.

Located just outside the charming small town of Marble, Colorado, this easily accessible retreat is surrounded by emerald pines and beautiful views of the 13,000-foot White House Mountain.

Waterfalls and trails for all skill levels abound around the cabin, although many guests go simply to enjoy their morning coffee surrounded by natural scenery and stunning views.

With one bedroom and one bath, this property is ideal for couples. (Insider tip: they even offer a senior discount!)

If you’ve come with a car, the orchards and vineyards of Paonia, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison River, and the Colorado National Monument in Grand Junction are all within a few hours’ drive.

A local BBQ restaurant is within walking distance, but you can also make your own meals in the kitchen and enjoy them on the postcard-worthy porch.

Quiet, rustic, and perfect for two (or at most, a family of 4), this small mountain cabin promises sweeping views, incredible sunsets, and easy access to dozens of activities.

Ten minutes away, you can access the shops and restaurants of Florissant or visit the Fossil Beds National Monument. 

Cripple Creek is about a 30-minute drive from this cozy cabin and a super scenic one at that.

As cozy as one may seem on those long winter nights, fires of any kind are strictly prohibited on the property, as frequent fire bans are in place throughout the area.

Furthermore, do note that renters are responsible for cleaning the cabin after their stay (changing the linens, taking out the trash, etc.).

You don’t need to look any further than the riverfront, spring-water hot tubs to rest assured that this is one of the most picturesque secluded cabins in Colorado.

This cabin is located right on the Filoha Meadows Open Space, which means you’ll be treated to fields full of wildflowers, roaming wildlife, and jaw-dropping vistas.

In the winter, try snowshoeing or Nordic skiing. In warmer months, kayak along the river or watch fireflies from the deck.

The kitchenette doesn’t include a stove or oven, but nearby small towns Marble and Carbondale have a number of dining options.

There’s plenty of peace and quiet to be found here. However, if complete seclusion is what you’re looking for, try another spot. 

This cabin is located on a shared property, so you may run into your neighbors now and then (but we bet they’re friendly).

A step beyond most secluded cabins in Colorado, this chalet and its never-ending backyard guarantee a peaceful vacation amidst pristine wilderness.

Located in Leadville, this property sits at a staggering 10,200 feet above sea level (something to consider if you have pre-existing health conditions or trouble with altitude).

But if you can handle the height, you’ll be able to tackle a hearty line-up of activities in any season–skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, fishing, river rafting, and more!

More into relaxing? The chalet features its own sauna, private pickleball court, and a fully-equipped kitchen. 

Plus, it’s 100% wind-powered! With three bedrooms, it’s ideal for parties of up to 6 people.

Calling all families! While many secluded cabins in Colorado are a tighter squeeze, this spacious property provides lots of room to spread out.

It features three bedrooms (2 of which have bunk beds), a dining table with room for 6, and a super comfy living room complete with movies, board games, and a wood-burning fireplace.

Because you are more remote, the cell service is spotty at best. So if you want a chance to disconnect and just enjoy nature, look no further!

The best of both worlds, this Colorado secluded cabin sits on 3.75 acres of wilderness, yet it’s only 10 minutes from the charming small town of Cripple Creek.

Small families will feel right at home among the sunny bedrooms and super cozy living spaces, and there are activities for every type of traveler nearby.

Florissant Fossil Beds, Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center, Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, and Pikes Peak (one of the state’s most popular 14ers) are all just a short drive away.

A 4-wheel drive or all-wheel drive is strongly recommended if visiting in winter, as the road to reach the cabin gets slick during rain and snow.

Looking for secluded cabin rentals in Colorado that don’t stray too far off the beaten path? 

Although it feels a world away, this lovely (and practically brand new!) lodge is just a convenient 1.5 hours away from Denver.

Custom log furniture and hardwood floors and ceilings make the place feel instantly homey, while luxury touches (gas fireplace, air hockey table, and an Amazon Firestick 4K for streaming) remind you you’re on vacation.

Families and groups of up to 6 will have plenty of space to spread out, while tons of toys, games, and movies bring everyone back together at the end of a long day.

Activities like golf, archery, horseback riding, mountain biking, and river rafting are all just a short car ride away, and there are hiking trails, frisbee golf, and sledding hills on the property itself.

Sportsman’s Paradise

With private access to Pikes National Forest and Wildcat Canyon, this place is a step up from most remote cabin rentals in Colorado.

Practically right from the back door, you can embark on an ATV adventure along miles of scenic trails, hike to a nearby waterfall, or fish in gold medal waters.

In the cabin itself, recent remodels mean you’ll be treated to new kitchen appliances, a smart flat-screen TV, heated mattress pads, and a rainfall shower.

Although the Lake George home can sleep 6, quarters get a bit tight and the shower’s hot water needs time to reset. Keep this in mind if booking with a bigger group.

Red-tail Round House

As one of the more unique private cabin rentals in Colorado, this home sits atop a moraine (material left behind by a moving glacier). 

The result? Colorful sunrises and sunsets, crystal-clear night skies, and sweeping views of mountain ranges in all directions.

Compact and cozy, this property is perfect for younger couples. Older guests should keep in mind that cars can’t get all the way to the property, and snowshoes are needed to get around in the winter.

Since this destination is more off the grid (1.5 hours from Steamboat Springs), don’t expect to live in luxury. 

However, solar-powered lighting, an attached compost potty house, and a wood-burning stove are more than enough to keep things comfortable.

Just north of Leadville and its popular ski slopes, this is one of the comfier private cabin rentals in Colorado, with easy access to town and tons of modern amenities.

Families and groups of up to 6 can make the most of a well-stocked kitchen, a selection of games and movies, and sun-filled living spaces, then gather around the outdoor fire pit at night (although firewood is not provided).

One thing to note: Getting down to the lake requires tackling a steep trail, which may be difficult for older guests.

The outdoor bi-level deck alone makes this one of the most picturesque of our Colorado secluded cabins for rent, looking out over a tranquil lake, piney forests, and incredible mountain sunrises.

Within a 20-45 minute drive of the cabin, you can go wine tasting in Woodland Park, hike at Mueller State Park, The Crags, or Pikes Peak, visit the scenic Cave of the Winds or Seven Falls, take in the Garden of Gods in Colorado Springs, and see Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Olympic Training Center, or the Air Force Academy.

You won’t find cell phone service or wifi here, so come prepared with a good book or simply enjoy the deer, squirrels, fox, and hummingbirds that often provide up-close entertainment for the guests.

The cabin is best for couples or families with small children, as it only features one bedroom and additional sleeping space on a pull-out couch.

Located on 60 acres of land and with no cell service to speak of, this Cotopaxi property will return you to a slower pace of life.

The nearest general store is located 30 minutes down the mountain, and bigger towns Salida and Cañon City, are about an hour’s drive away, so make sure you’ve stocked up on the essentials beforehand.

Once settled in, groups of up to 6 will enjoy long meadow strolls, BBQs on the outdoor deck, stellar night skies, and opportunities for fishing, river rafting, kayaking, and hiking nearby.

Last but certainly not least of these secluded cabin rentals in Colorado is a stunning chalet-style home with jaw-dropping views of Mount Princeton and Antero right out front.

Be prepared to go off the grid–the cabin has no wifi or cell service. A fair number of stairs are involved to get up to the property, so keep that in mind if any members of your group have lower mobility. 

Also, some prior guests have noted that the furniture and amenities were lacking.
