LOG CABIN Pi­o­neer Guest Cab­ins, Crested Butte, Colo. Half of th­ese le­git his­toric log cab­ins were built in 1939 for skiers vis­it­ing Pi­o­neer Ski Re­sort, the state’s first lift-served slopes. (FYI, the warm­ing hut is still there.) Pretty cool, huh? A bonus is that they’re lo­cated eight miles out­side one of the state’s best ski towns and just 15 min­utes from the ski re­sort. The other half went up in the 1960s to of­fer more ac­com­mo­da­tions for peo­ple look­ing for a rus­tic ex­pe­ri­ence like this one. The two- and three-bed­room cab­ins have all been re­stored and up­dated through­out the years to en­sure a cozy yet com­fort­able stay. All have full kitchens, and many have both gas fire­places and wood­stoves to up the au­then­tic­ity fac­tor (chop­ping not re­quired). Just don’t ex­pect di­ver­sions such as TVs or wi-fi. The goal here is com­muning with na­ture in beau­ti­ful Gun­ni­son Na­tional For­est. Think board games, cards, books, and qual­ity fam­ily time off the slopes. Yes, please. pi­o­neer­guest­cab­ins.com
