Lodging

The Carbondale area offers a variety of lodging options including rustic lodges and cabins, rugged yet comfortable campgrounds, a historical landmark inn, quaint bed & breakfasts, and more traditional hotels with modern-day amenities.

The picturesque town of Carbondale is located 170 miles west of Denver, 12 miles from Glenwood Springs and 30 miles from Aspen, in the heart of Colorado’s central Rocky Mountains. At an altitude of 6,181 feet, and resting in the magnificent shadow of 12,953-foot Mount Sopris, the Carbondale area is characterized by an average of 295 days of sunshine, low humidity, cold but mild winters and comfortable summers.

Touted as one of the “Top 12 Towns” in the “50 Next Great Places to Live and Play” by National Geographic Adventure Magazine, Carbondale is a great base camp for recreation enthusiasts. There is plenty to do including biking, kayaking, and world-class fly-fishing. In winter, excellent cross-country skiing can be found at Spring Gulch.
