The Colorado Yurt That Is So Secluded, It Can Only Be Reached By Snowshoe
Do you crave a vacation from reality and long to get as far away from everyone and everything as you can? Believe it or not, you can do so right here in Colorado, thanks to the Opus Hut, an incredibly remote and secluded yurt that can only be reached by foot (or snowshoe, weather pending):
Tucked away deep within the San Juan Mountains, the Opus Hut is a gorgeous 5-bedroom room lodge that offers not only a comfortable place to sleep but other surprises as well.
Built by hand, the Opus Hut is the epitome of rustic Colorado, thanks to not only its secluded location but wooden exterior and interior, multiple decks, and a wood-burning fireplace that is perfect for those downright chilly nights.
Billed as being a "full-service European style backcountry hut," your stay at Opus also includes your bedding, in-floor solar thermal heating, an intimate seating area, and more.
Besides a warm and comfortable place to stay, the Opus Hut includes a home-cooked breakfast and dinner, plus afternoon soup and snacks.
Needless to say, a location in the San Juans includes easy access to world-class outdoor recreational opportunities such as hiking, backcountry skiing, biking, and more.
Please note: As the title suggests, the Opus Hut is only accessible via foot or snowshoe (depending on the time of year), so pack accordingly for a 1/4-mile+ hike.
