Your basecamp for Colorado adventures begins with a Glenwood Canyon vacation rental along the Colorado River, near Glenwood Springs.
Glenwood Canyon is an unrefuted Colorado beauty. With its rugged limestone cliffs, cycling and hiking trails—including the famed Hanging Lake—copious fishing holes for catching Rainbows and top-notch whitewater rafting, it’s an all-natural stunner. Exploring all the things to do here, however, is easier when your basecamp is a conveniently-located cabin vacation rental nestled right in the middle of all the grandeur.
Stay in the only cabins in Glenwood Canyon
The narrow, steep-walled, 16-mile-long canyon carved by the Colorado River isn’t exactly accommodating to real-estate development. It’s part of the reason this area remains pristine and unspoiled. In fact, there is only one location where guests can overnight. In addition to tent and RV camping, Glenwood Canyon Resort welcomes visitors to stay awhile in its cabins that are functional, family-friendly and, of course, cozy.
The resort is tucked along the north-side bank of the Colorado River and features three kinds of cabin vacation rentals. With varying levels of creature comforts, each offers a fun and affordable alternative to a boring hotel room.
Pick the Glenwood Canyon Resort Cabin that’s right for you
Resort Cabins are perfect for larger groups and can easily accommodate a family of five. Kids adore the sleeping loft which overlooks the main living area. A kitchen, including a fridge, four-burner stove and microwave is also stocked with dishes and cookware to make meal prep a breeze. After an adventure-filled day, kick back on a full-sized sofa, watch your favorite TV show and cozy-up to the fireplace for added ambiance. Bringing your four-legged bestie is no problem either—several resort cabins are designated as “pet-friendly.” Craving a steak or burgers done just right? Resort Cabins are the only ones to feature a gas grill with every unit.
Cottages are the newest addition to Glenwood Canyon Resort. Slightly smaller than the resort cabins, with soaring 14-foot ceilings, cottages still feel spacious and can comfortably sleep up to four with a queen bedroom and a sleeping loft for two. An efficiency kitchen is ideal for guests who want to be able to make easy-to-prep meals; it includes a fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. Instead of cooking dinner, head to the resort’s on-site restaurant the No Name Bar & Grill or try one of the many options for dining in Glenwood Springs. Like the Resort Cabins, the Cottages also have televisions and a full bathroom.
Camper Cabins are the most rustic choice. These sweet little dwellings keep things simple yet provide shelter and the security of a locked door. Inside, you’ll find just what you need—a double and twin bunk beds—but remember to bring your own linens or sleeping bag. One of the most charming features of the these is the covered porch with either Adirondack-style chairs or a log porch swing. While camper cabins don’t have bathrooms, restroom and shower facilities are close-by. Camper cabins are available in two locations: riverfront or woodland. As you might expect, the riverside camper cabins book up quickly, so reserve early.
