cabins in the area?

Our family usually goes to the RMNP for vacation but looking into somewhere different next year. I always have problems sleeping at 9000 ft so we thought Vail might work. I've been looking but there seems only to be condos. Are there any small cabin resorts nearby? Thanks!

Vail isn't a "cabin resort" kind of place (in my opinion). You might find something in the surrounding areas but I doubt in the valley. Hopefully some of the local experts will know. I've been to Piney River Ranch for horseback riding. It's in a beautiful location with incredible scenery. I think there are cabins to rent. It is higher in elevation.

Have you considered Steamboat Springs? It is around 6800'. A Google search turned up a nice looking place called Eagle Rock Ranch. Just another suggestion.

Piney River Ranch has cabins to rent right on the lake. I am not sure of the elevation there. That's the only place I can think of near Vail. Summit county may have something. Check Breckenridge, Frisco, Dillon area & post to their forum.

I think Piney River is about the same or close in elevation to RMNP. Have you considered finding a place you could "sleep low" and then take day trips to higher locations?
