Top 14 Vrbos in the Colorado Rockies

Our research is editorially independent but we may earn a commission for purchases made through our links.

The American Rockies may span across six states, but Colorado has the most peaks that exceed 14,000 feet in elevation with 53, including Mount Elbert, the highest point in the entire range at 14,433 feet. While there are plenty of hotels and resorts throughout the region, booking a Vrbo rental can be the best way to go, providing plenty of room for the whole family or any other group traveling together. You’ll usually get a bigger bang for the buck with amenities you usually won’t find at other properties, like full kitchens, washer/dryers, and maybe even your own private hot tub. For the best of the best, when planning your Colorado Rockies vacation, consider one of these Vrbos.
