Ever dreamed of having an adventurous glamping trip in Colorado with your partner? Between the ski resorts, the 54 fourteeners (peaks over 14,000 feet in elevation), and the four national parks located within the state’s boundaries, there are innumerable ways to enjoy the Centennial State’s spectacular scenery. If you need advice on where to stay on a Colorado glamping getaway, the following yurts make it easy to explore the state’s wilderness without sacrificing essential amenities or the comforts of home while staying close to recreation.
The Tennessee Pass Yurts offer some of the state’s top cross-country skiing, backcountry dining, and lodging that make it one of the best yurt destinations in Colorado. You’ll love it here. They’ve designed and decorated each yurt meticulously with a blend of classic mountain decor that’s balanced with rustic and traditional Scandinavian charm. As opposed to other, and more isolated backcountry yurts in the area, the Pacific Yurts at Tennessee Pass include pristine soapstone wood stoves and hand-made log beds with down comforters to shield visitors against the chilly Colorado air. The Cookhouse Yurt also serves as the primary dining facility onsite, but room service may be delivered to your glamping haven as well. Located a short 1.3 miles from the Nordic Center, these yurts are ideal for couples who want to experience Colorado’s wilderness in comfort after a fun mountain excursion.
2. Wolf Creek Backcountry
It’s not a secret that Southwest Colorado is an outdoor lover’s paradise. With iconic towns like Telluride, Ouray, and Durango nestled against some of the most brilliant peaks in Colorado, there are few regions in the world with as much access to pristine back terrain, backcountry or otherwise than here.
The Pass Creek Yurt, located in the Wolf Creek Backcountry just outside of Pagosa Springs, is one of Colorado’s most exceptional Pacific Yurts. Known for its isolation and access to excellent skiing and mountain biking, Pass Creek is a well-traveled spot for couples who love the outdoors and want to get close and personal with Colorado’s brilliant peaks. Compared to the luxuriously stocked yurts at Tennessee Pass, this yurt offers more rustic accommodations, albeit with more than enough supplies to ensure your glamping getaway is still comfortable after a day of exploration.
3. State Bridge
A popular Colorado lodge with a lengthy and storied history, State Bridge is perhaps most famous for its reputation as a speakeasy and illegal gambling center during the peak of the Prohibition. However, the modern-day State Bridge offers much more than homemade moonshine, and now has seven yurts and spectacular access to the Upper Colorado River and surrounding attractions. While set in a rustic location, these Pacific Yurts are well-equipped and feature a queen or full bed along with a microwave, mini-refrigerator, charcoal grill, and space heaters for cooler temperatures. In addition to the amenities, State Bridge offers venturesome couples the chance to unplug for a few days to relax or take advantage of the limitless recreation. There isn’t any cell service onsite. And while free wifi is available, State Bridge’s high desert location makes it the perfect place to take a break from devices.
For the couple seeking an exciting getaway, the aptly named Lawson Adventure Yurts are a prime place to spend a weekend in the beautiful setting of Dumont, Colorado. Located about an hour outside of Boulder, these five fully furnished Pacific Yurts are also offered as a part of the Lawson Adventure Park and Resort, which gives guests the chance to purchase specific packages that include rafting, skiing, zip-lining, climbing, and other excursions. While the adventure packages vary in price, wanderlust duos hoping to tackle the surrounding region on their own can stay at the Lawson Yurts for a regular nightly rate of $39. All Lawson yurts are equipped with beds, a lantern for central lighting, heating for colder periods, and a barbecue grill for preparing romantic meals to enjoy under Colorado’s enchanting skyline.
