Not everyone can afford the Bavarian-inspired, massive mountain lodge in Vail straight out of a Grimm’s fairytale complete with a private wine cellar and five jacuzzis, but boy do we have a treat for you. Bunkering down for the winter watching Netflix in your own bed sure is relaxing, but we promise cozying up in a luxury cabin is a better way to spend those dark, chilly winter nights in Colorado. Whether you’re looking for an awesome après-ski space to party with friends or a rustic log home retreat for a little downtime deep in the wilderness, these cheap luxury cabin rentals from Glamping Hub and Airbnb will make sure your winter getaway is to remember — and not because of the hefty bill.
