I think a honeymoon in the mountains, a romantic cabin in Colorado is a perfect way to spend time together after your marriage. In fact, it is one of the few vacations we return to year after year. You can find secluded cabins with hot tubs or large luxury lodges with tons of amenities depending on your budget and style.
Imagine dipping into a steaming outdoor hot tub right outside your honeymoon cabin, or spending time next to a cozy fireplace roasting smores. Last winter we spend a week in Colorado staying in cabins and it was easily one of the best trips we have been on together.
Where to Book Cabins For a Colorado Getaway
There are several places to book your cabin online. We recommend VRBO for cabins that are individually owned over Airbnb for ethical reasons. If you are looking for a luxury lodge or looking to book our favorite place, Vista Verde Ranch, I would contact them directly.
Top Honeymoon Cabins Rentals

All-Inclusive Cabin Luxury at Vista Verde Ranch
*Mention us during booking at Vista Verde for champaign and chocolate-dipped strawberries upon arrival*
Vista Verde is an amazing luxury all-inclusive ranch located just outside of Steamboat Springs. We fell in love with the property and the amazing staff that make it special. All-inclusive packages start at $1,725/person for a 3-night stay in a cabin. We encourage 4 nights if possible as that allows for enough time to try many of the activities while still fitting in relaxation time in the cabin.
You will find the cabin stocked with snacks and drinks every day, and the staff will check in with you to know how things are going and to get you prepared for the activities available to you. The meals are delicious and are prepared by a very talented team with local influence.
In the winter, imagine snow gently falling outside of your cabin while you are cozy inside by the fire or soaking in the hot tub outside your luxury cabin. We found this especially helpful after a horseback riding session or backcountry ski outing.
In the summer there are even more activities available during your honeymoon, including fly fishing, mountain biking, and more.
Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or looking to rekindle the romance, a winter vacation at Vista Verde offers the perfect setting for a romantic getaway. Couples can share snowy adventures together, try out new activities, or split up and go different directions during the day. Meals with other engaging guests liven the conversation, and the dining room is always filled with laughter. Leisurely afternoon naps or late-night soak in the hot tub give couples a chance to retreat from it all and focus on each other.
