These 8 Glampgrounds In Colorado Will Give You An Unforgettable Experience
Glamping: Have you ever heard of it? If you haven’t, it is defined as “glamorous camping” (get it?) and consists of enjoying the great outdoors via luxurious accommodations. Is this your kind of camping (like it is mine)? If so, you are in luck, as Colorado is home to several “glampgrounds”, including:
1. Dunton Hot Springs (Dunton)
Beautifully restored log cabins. Glamorous decor and furnishings. Fine dining and spa treatments. The very definition of glamping can be found at the stunning
Dunton Hot Springs
, which is located just across the mountain from Telluride.
2. Verde Ranch (Steamboat Springs)
This Steamboat-area dude ranch guarantees to pull out all the stops: 5-star dining, 4-diamond amenities, and the joys of the Colorado outdoors await you at this beautiful, all-inclusive
3. C Lazy U Ranch (Granby)
Are you looking for a unique family vacation? Look no further than the
C Lazy U Ranch
, which not only features spacious rooms with working stone fireplaces, but fun family activities, like horseback riding, hayrides, panning for gold, and so much more.
4. The Vail Collective Retreat (Vail)
Don't feel put out by having to plan your next vacation; let the experts at the
Vail Collective Retreat
take care of it all! In addition to assembling your custom accommodations, the pros at the Vail Collective will select the perfect menu of foods and activities based on your preferences.
5. Mountain Goat Lodge (Salida)
Not that you need any more convincing after seeing this view from the hot tub, but the
Mountain Goat Lodge
offers numerous digs including the bed and breakfast itself AND a few adorable retro campers.
6. 4UR Dude Ranch (Creede)
definitely isn't your mamma's dude ranch! This little slice of heaven features nearby hot springs, nightly turn-down service, gourmet meals, and a whole lot more.
7. The High Lonesome Ranch (De Beque)
Alright, outdoorsman; the high riding, sharp shooting, and oh-so comfortable lodging at the
High Lonesome Ranch
is just for you.
8. Tennessee Pass Cookhouse and Nordic Center (Leadville)
While the word "yurt" may not sound the most glamorous, the cozy and relaxing sleep-yurts at the
Tennessee Pass Cookhouse and Nordic Center
sure are! (I don't know about you, but I can already picture my family relaxing next to this fire.)
What do you think: Is glamping your thing? Or do you prefer the more traditional tents and campsites?
