SW Colorado is drop-dead beautiful.....but.....you'd better like SNOW!
The farther south you go in New Mexico, except at very high elevations, the less snow you'll see in winter.

SW Colorado is also somewhat hard to get to. If you head north of Santa Fe, you're only 1-2 hours from the ABQ airport. SW Colorado would be several hours drive (through the traffic of Colorado Springs) from Denver.

I only mentioned these options because you stipulated when you began this thread that you were only interested in a summer place. It's difficult to suggest a "cabin in the woods" that wouldn't see snow in winter. Unless those woods were in somewhere like east Texas!

As far as difficulty getting to and from, there are flights into commuter airports in Montrose, Gunnison and I believe even Durango. Even so, highways in CO are in MUCH better condition than those in NM - generally speaking.

Durango's airport is becoming quite the regional hub.

They are to start direct flights to Dallas (DFW) in June, American Eagle. It's now an experiment, one am flight daily. I hope it is a success!
