Why Renting A Cabin Is A Great Way To Spend Your Family Vacation

Are there any better family vacations than family cabin vacations?

Sure, we’re biased, but we really don’t think so. Vacation cabin rentals in Colorado treat you not only to some of the most stirring scenery in the country but also to a tucked-away haven where you all can focus on the most important things in life—and mint some amazing and enduring memories.

At Royal Gorge Cabins, we’re honored to provide just such a perch, set within a truly amazing swath of the Centennial State.

Cabin Rentals Near Royal Gorge, Colorado

It’s not at all a stretch to say that the Royal Gorge of the Arkansas River ranks among the most glorious landscapes in the American West, and glamping in Colorado with us here at Royal Gorge Cabins puts that superlative scenery right at your fingertips.

summer time view of Royal Gorge and bridge with mountains in distanceThe strikingly narrow, dazzlingly deep chasm leading out of the Southern Rocky Mountains toward the vastness of the Great Plains, sometimes called the “Grand Canyon of the Arkansas River,” is reason enough to steal away with the family to this neck of the woods. But our region, part of the so-called Banana Belt of Colorado, also comes chockablock with other attractions and activities, the Royal Gorge being only the centerpiece of an incredible mosaic of natural wonders and outdoor recreation.

From historical sightseeing in Cripple Creek and wine tasting at Holy Cross Abbey to mountain biking, ziplining, hot-springs soaking, and—but of course—rafting the world-famous flow of the “Ark,” this is a fantastic region for family cabin vacations.

Planning a family vacation in Colorado? Why not consider a cabin for your H.Q.?

And when you consider our big, beautiful backyard here at Royal Gorge Cabins, with a genuine geologic wonder and recreational hotspot at your fingertips—albeit one that’s not overcrowded like some other Rocky Mountain destinations—it’s just hard to think of a better option for kid-friendly vacation ideas. Here’s a landscape to inspire awe, excite everyone’s spirit of adventure, and serenely frame the quality time spent together (a precious commodity, needless to say).
