City life is fast paced and that’s partly why we love it, it gives us a buzz. But quite often the dramatic buildings, grey streets and horrific traffic can just scream ‘work’ and ‘stress’ at us very aggressively. It can often feel too confined and too corporate. Many of us sit looking longingly out of our office windows, feeling certain that the grass is greener beyond the endless skyscrapers. The architecture itself is a constant reminder of the working environment, and sometimes you just need a trip to escape the hustle and bustle. I mean, you may not have inhaled air, and I mean real fresh air, in a very long time.
I’m not just referring to an uneventful beach trip, lying on a sunbed and frazzling up in the heat; you’re sure to be taking work calls anyway because you’ll feel bored and unproductive. I’m suggesting a serious getaway, doing something different, something memorable, in a special and unique kind of setting. A trip to the US, somewhere like Colorado, entices visitors with its rugged rocky mountains, lush meadows, endless rolling plains, majestic waterfalls, spectacular rivers and towering cliffs. As it turns out, it’s not just our adoration for divine landscapes that leaves us feeling Zen – being outside can actually offer relief for depression, negativity and can even alleviate pain caused by various health complications. Nature walks are linked to enhanced mental health and positivity, as well as significantly lower levels of stress. People who walk, cycle, or run within the realms of nature have a lower risk of poor mental health than people who work out indoors. Outdoor adventurers and nature lovers, be prepared, if you stay in any Colorado cabin rentals, you may never want to leave.
Log cabin rentals offer quality and spacious cabins in the midst of the mountains. These luxury mountain-lodges have complete privacy yet you’ll have all of Colorado’s delights at your fingertips. Residences are distinctively designed and exquisitely appointed, creating ideal places where memories are made and experiences are authentic. Stone and wooden accents throughout the home provide that quintessential ‘cabin in the woods’ feeling alongside modern amenities to allow you to feel comfortable in this home-from-home. If your surroundings are beautiful and luxurious you will be absolutely tranquil which is wholly fundamental for your well being and experience at a retreat.
Have you ever gone a whole day without checking your emails? Our smartphone and tablet culture makes unplugging difficult and is not healthy. It’s time to switch off. This is more than just a holiday, this is an opportunity to find, or re-find yourself in a stunning, untouched environment. Whether you’re soul searching and seeking peace, looking for great adventure with friends or honeymooning, this is a chance to truly escape, unwind and relax.
Colorado isn’t just the place to fill your lungs with clear air. Adventure is out there; Colorado is overflowing with things to do. If you opt for a winter vacay, number one on the bucket list is Colorado’s renowned world-class skiing adventure; Whether you’re a pro skier or a complete amateur, kit yourself out in preparation to ski in style and enjoy the euphoric ride. There are slopes for all abilities, especially in the Vail, Aspen, and Breckenridge ski resort areas. Relax those toes, flex your ankles, keep your skis parallel and your hands forward. Enjoy the sublime surroundings as you glide down endless pillows of white powder. Log cabin rentals are the perfect place to unwind after your day; kick off your gear and cosy up by the fire, it’s time to relax in front of the TV, sip some wine and stay toasty after a long day on the slopes.
Luxury log cabins are spectacular throughout all the seasons. Other popular activities to release those endorphins are mountain biking, hiking, hot-air ballooning and rock climbing – just to name a few. Immerse yourself in water sports such as paddle boating, kayaking, canoeing or whitewater rafting for those with no fear. There is something for everybody to get excited about. If you visit Colorado wanting an adventure, you won’t be disappointed.
For the honeymooners, Colorado also offers the opportunity to deep cleanse and rehydrate at luxury spa and gym facilities; you’ll be feeling more alive and more relaxed than ever. Also worth checking out is the great mountain music, sensational local breweries, gourmet cuisine, fabulous nightlife and outstanding art and culture. Whether you have a jam-packed itinerary or you’re more spontaneous, you’ll be coming home to tranquility; how does a dip in the hot tub under the stars sound?
So, why should you choose a cabin over say, a hotel? Well, there will be no over commercialisation on your trip, not a billboard or a tacky sign in sight. But we want you to have an experience like no other mainstream hotel can provide; rustic meets grandeur, a unique and distinctive combination. You’ll be taking a step back in time to a quieter, more peaceful setting. You’ll be able to hear the birds, the waterfalls and the snowfall – all sounds of nature, rather than road traffic. You will hardly have to deal with people (unless of course you want too!) It will pretty much be you and the mountains. Wake up and open the blinds to awe inspiring landscapes, you’ll never grow tired of the glorious views.
So, this could be the physical and emotional rejuvenation you need before you return to the city -but just to warn you, you may find it difficult to return.
