Hello,

Being a native Texan I am regularly deprived of a proper winter. I was hoping to visit Colorado in January and would appreciate some suggestions on where to visit.

I'm looking for mostly relaxation and romance, but also a bit of adventure. I would prefer to have a private cabin with a fireplace and a hot tub.

Thank you for any suggestions!

Wink High country

You have a lot of options if money is little object. As winter desired, and presumably snow, focus on the high country. All the major ski resorts should answer, at a price.

Certain preferences, other than cabin and hot tub?

I would look on VRBO and see what you find. Summit County, Steamboat Springs, Crested Butte, Granby/Winter Park might be places to start looking.

My vote is for Crested Butte. It's more isolated. More of an "I'm in the middle of the Rockies with no one around for miles" feel to it. Might not have as many amenities though plus it's like a 5 hour drive from Denver if you plan on flying in and renting a car.

I second San Juan County, in perticular Lake City/Ouray/Silverton. Lake city has cabins for rent at a place called T-Bear's camp ground. Good fishing, hunting, hiking, whatever.

I've heard about this place but the cabins don't have fireplaces (they have wood burning stoves):
