Luxury Rocky Mountain cabins, chalets & vacation rentals

The perfect stay
in the Rocky Mountains

The rugged Rocky Mountains are as much a part of America’s culture as they are its landscape. Dramatic peaks blanketed in snow throughout the winter, marvellous native wildlife, and a backdrop of the vast Great Plains make it one of the world’s most impressive destinations for an outdoor adventure. Experience its mesmerising beauty firsthand from the comfort of a cosy Rocky Mountain cabin rental.

Straddling no fewer than seven states and stretching out for well over a thousand miles, it’s safe to say that the Rocky Mountains are immense. The region boasts National Park status and is home to some of the best ski resorts in North America. When you’re not hitting the slopes or unwinding in your lavish Rocky Mountain chalet, you’ll have the chance to soak up the local cuisine and unique charm of bustling mountain towns like Aspen, Breckenridge, and Steamboat.

Not just a winter destination, you’ll find a bounty of activity options if you book a cabin in the Rocky Mountains National Park in the spring or summer. Fly-fishing expeditions, breathtaking hikes, horse-riding adventures, and encounters with grizzly bears and majestic elk can all be on your holiday agenda. The Rockies are very much intertwined with the country’s history, too. You’ll spot sites of famous Civil War battles, plus locations where you can learn all about the region’s indigenous roots and thrilling Gold Rush heyday.

Best time to go

  • During spring: the snow begins to melt by early April and bursts of colour appear in the form of gorgeous wildflowers. Nevertheless, daily temperatures sit at around 10℃ (50℉), and snowfall is still possible in the Rockies' higher locales. Tick off some of the region’s lower hiking trails or venture through the foothills on horseback, keeping your eyes peeled for newborn elk and moose.

  • During summer: with temperatures sitting nicely in the 20s℃ (high 60s℉) by June, many guests flock to the Rocky Mountain National Park to soak up its lush scenery and embark on numerous outdoor pursuits. Trekking to its loftiest peaks is now possible, while water-based activities like white-water rafting are utterly exhilarating. It’s also a good time for festivals, including the Food & Wine Classic in Aspen and the Fourth of July celebrations regionwide. Love music? Don’t skip the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in June.

  • During autumn: by autumn, the Rockies are a riot of colour as the aspen trees turn vivid shades of red, amber and gold. Crisp air and temperatures of 10℃ to 15℃ (50℉ to 60℉) make it a good time for mountain biking adventures, glacier hikes, and trout fishing. It’s elk mating season, too, with many park rangers leading specialised wildlife walking tours. Rain showers are infrequent but expect regular snowfall by November.

  • During winter: December to February is the best time for a cosy Rocky Mountain cabin escape, thanks to the region’s fabulously frosty scenery. Ski season is in full swing, and there are plenty of other winter activities to enjoy, from snowshoeing to sledging. Planning a trip to Breckenridge? Late January is when the town hosts the International Snow Sculpture Championships.

How to get there

Make the journey as memorable as the arrival. Your dedicated concierge can arrange transportation from the closest airport or bus station to your Rocky Mountain chalet.

By plane

There are several international airports close to the Rocky Mountain National Park, including Denver and Salt Lake City. You’ll also spot smaller regional airports, such as Glenwood Spring Municipal Airport just northwest of Aspen, with private jet facilities. The easiest way to reach your Rocky Mountain chalet from your chosen airport is via a VIP car transfer arranged with your concierge.

By car

Hiring a car and setting off on daily road trips is a great way to see the Rockies, especially if you’re visiting outside of the ski season when there are various other activity options to enjoy. The roads are well-maintained and very scenic, although some are closed by late autumn and throughout the winter. Your concierge can help you book your car rental, whether you want a vehicle for your entire trip or just a few days.

By bus

The National Park Service runs free shuttle buses across the Rockies between May and October. There are three different routes which mostly cover the park’s eastern destinations. You could also hop on the Estes Park Shuttle (note that this is ticketed) from Denver International Airport and then arrange any onward travel from Estes Park to your ski resort.

Local tips

  • Always be respectful of the mountain wildlife and be sure to follow any local rules and regulations.
  • Make sure to always have a water bottle on hand as it is easier to get dehydrated at high altitudes.
  • Pack a lightweight outer layer or sweater even in the summer, as temperatures tend to dip dramatically in the evening.
