Cabins For Sale In Colorado

By: Mel Joelle

Just about anybody who lives in Colorado hopes to one day own a cabin. Whether this is an idle daydream or a real goal that they’re working towards, a cabin in Colorado is a common desire. There are a few ways of going about having your own cabin in the Centennial State, and we’ll get into all of them below.

Building on Your Own Land

This method of obtaining your own Colorado cabin has a few benefits that these other methods simply cannot possibly provide. First of all, building your own cabin by hand is an enormous achievement, and one that not many people will realize in life. Most people are lucky to build their very own tool shed in the backyard, let alone a cabin. Another benefit to building a cabin is cost. Buying a piece of land in an out-of-the-way part of the state can be quite a bit cheaper than buying a home or a cabin, and since all of the trees on the land belong to the land owner, a simple chainsaw, handsaw, some rope and a hammer and nails may be all the investment you ever need.

That said, this requires a bit of know-how and a lot of hard work. Not everybody is up for this task. They may not have the time or the physical capacity to actually build a cabin from scratch, they may not even want to if they simply want a vacation home out in the woods.

When buying land, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for government surplus of land. When the US government needs an acre of land, they might buy a lot of several hundred acres, and then simply try to break even selling each acre at a fraction of what it would cost on its own otherwise.

Foreclosures and Estate Auctions

There are a lot of cabins in the woods already, and not all of them have rightful owners, so to say. Many of them have been foreclosed upon due to bad loans or other reasons, or they’ve been left in a will to somebody who has no interest in owning a cabin. In any event, there are plenty of options for those who want to own their own cabin without spending a ton of money. Keep an eye on the papers for estate auctions, government auctions and things of that nature.


There are a lot of opportunities out there for people who don’t mind lending their cabin to somebody else when they’re not using it. Many people co-own a cabin with their coworkers or other colleagues, perhaps only spending a tiny fraction of the total price to maintain their own reservation on the cabin. This could mean spending even a few hundred to use the cabin for a few weeks each summer.

Having a cabin to stay in needn’t mean owning it all yourself when you’re only going to use it a few times a year. There’s nothing wrong with sharing the cabin in between visits with other outdoorsmen and women.

Owning a cabin is a dream for many, a reality for some, and a great responsibility and burden for those who don’t think things threw before making a purchase. Be careful and make sure that you know what you’re getting into before getting involved and make your decision wisely. There are many options open to you if you want to own a cabin, so there’s no need to make the decision impulsively or without forethought.
