The World's Smallest Hotels

Trappers Cabin, Beaver Creek, Colorado

If you dream of retreating to the mountains, far from civilization, don't let a little thing like wilderness survival skills stand in your way. Just pick the right hideaway. At Trappers Cabin, 9,500 feet above sea level on Beaver Creek Mountain, the only people within sight or earshot are the staff members who pop in to heat up the hot tub and light the river rock fireplace. Guests—with four bedrooms, the gussied-up cabin sleeps up to ten—are shuttled back and forth by snowmobile and have ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes. There's a personal chef on hand to whip up fabulous meals (cornmeal-fried oysters, rack of Colorado lamb) and serve them on fine china; a "cabin keeper" makes sure your roster of activities is full with skiing and snowshoeing in winter, hiking and mountain biking in summer. Of course, all of Beaver Creek Resort is at your disposal, too. But with a billiard room, player piano, poker table, and 42-inch flat-screen in the house, you and your group can be as reclusive as you want.
