Where to book luxury cabins this autumn

From self-guided fall foliage tours to weekends at the lake, booking a secluded cabin is an easy way to avoid crowds this autumn. 

Cabins today come in every incarnation imaginable, from traditional log designs to modern wonders, and in sizes ranging from palatial estates to one-room shacks located smack in the middle of a pond

The cabins we bring you here, however, are anything but small. They are designed for groups of families and friends who want a luxury holiday that is as posh as a resort — but without all the people.

Most are also booked far in advance, which may be even more reason to start making autumn travel plans today.

This seemingly remote five-bedroom cabin is just over a mile from Telluride Ski Resort’s 2,000 acres of skiable terrain.

Autumn is quiet in Telluride. After summer visitors have departed, and before the ski season starts in mid-November, visitors can bike, fish and hike through the aspen forests surrounding the cabin. Nights are best for curling up next to the fireplace or soaking away in the hot tub. Golf is nearby too; the Telluride Ski & Golf Club is less than two miles down the road.

Where Paul Bunyan meets Martha Stewart, this 5,100-square-foot log cabin sports vaulted ceilings, a spacious loft and an outdoor firepit. A large manicured lawn connects the property to Pelican Lake, where kayaks and a paddle boat can be launched from a sandy shoreline or 100-foot pier with connecting sundeck.

With interior décor that beautifully blends rock, wood and glass, the cabin maintains flawless reviews on VRBO — a full five out of five stars from all 70 reviewers.

For a fall getaway for you and 29 of your closest friends, this 8,000-square-foot cabin with eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms is an entertainer’s dream.

Outdoor enthusiasts can kayak and swim in the lake out back well into the early autumn months, while late season travelers can pivot to hiking, horseback riding and mountain biking. Sports lovers can hang out in the cabin’s full-size sports bar, while shoppers can explore the upscale stores, art galleries and wineries in the area.

Everyone can meet for meals in the dining room — it seats 22 — which spills into a covered “party porch” outdoors.
