There are plenty of reasons to stay close to the slopes … and there are just as many not to. None of these lodging options are ski-in/ski-out—well maybe Nordic ski—but once you’re settled into one of these rustic abodes, you won’t care. Each of these is within an hour of great skiing, is nestled into some amazing natural landscape, and boasts a private hot tub for luxurious soaks uninterrupted by anything other than the local fauna.

Holloway Cabin, Buena Vista, Colo.

Buena Vista AirBnB

Closest Skiing: Monarch Ski Area, 45 minutes
An 1800s mining cabin on the banks of Cottonwood Creek, Holloway Cabin is a rustic hideout with a queen bed loft and pullout in the living area. But the pièce de résistance of this lovingly restored lodging is the hot springs-inspired infinity hot tub overlooking the creek, built using rocks from the natural landscape. It’s a bit of a drive to the slopes of Monarch, but the uniqueness of this place makes it worth the miles. Book here.

Western Saloon, Tetonia, Idaho

Idaho AirBnB

Closest Skiing: Grand Targhee, 30 minutes
This fun property is a small but exquisitely rehabbed saloon-turned-lodging ideal for skiers looking for something a little different, yet just a short and scenic drive to the powder on tap at Grand Targhee. It’s a one-bedroom with an additional pullout couch plus fireplace, and an amazing saltwater hot tub out back where you can soak while soaking in the full-on Teton Valley views. Book here.

Schoolhouse Farm Cottage, Shaftsbury, Vt.

Vt AirBnB

Closest Skiing: Stratton, 40 minutes
Bed down in a restored schoolhouse that sleeps up to six in two bedrooms plus a pullout on the owner’s 4th-generation regenerative organic family farm. A deck with a hot tub and panoramic barrel sauna was recently added to this charming rental cottage, so guests can alternate between soaking sore muscles and enjoying the sauna’s dry heat in full view of the Green Mountains. Book here.

Sky Haus A-Frame, Skyhomish, Wash.

Wash AirBnB

Closest Skiing: Stevens Pass, 20 minutes
A tiny, classic A-frame that sleeps 4, Sky Haus is minutes from Stevens Pass and even closer to some of the best snowshoeing in the region. Sky Haus is rustic yet well-equipped, down to the private hot tub nestled into the dense forest. Simple, straightforward, and remote, it’s an ideal skier’s hideaway. Book here.

Ross Creek Cabin, Belgrade, Mont.

Montana AirBnB

Closest Skiing: Bridger Bowl, 30 minutes
A rustic base camp within striking distance from Bridger Bowl—and a little over an hour from Big Sky—Ross Creek Cabin is part of a trio of down-home accommodations that share amazing mountain vistas, a remote yet scenic location, and a naturally landscaped hot tub in the shadow of Yellowstone National Park. The studio cabin sleeps four. Book here.

Cabin in the Woods, Jackson, N.H.


Closest Skiing: Attitash, 10 minutes
This two-story, two bedroom woodsy cabin sleeps up to six and boasts two fireplaces and a private hot tub nestled on National Forest land. The gurgling Ellis River is steps away, and guests can snowshoe right from the cabin. What’s more, the family-friendly slopes of Attitash are less than a 10-minute drive, while the steeps of Wildcat are 15 minutes in the other direction. Settle into the private hot tub for immersive forest views after a day shredding either one. Book here.
