Secluded winter getaway

Recommended Posts

The wife finishes graduate school at the end of the year and, up until recently, we were very excited about a big international trip. That ain't happening, obviously. As a substitute, we have discussed getting a secluded cabin for 7-10 days, ideally drivable from the DFW area. Solitude and natural beauty that could be enjoyed in the winter would be the two most important factors. Any recommendations for particular areas, or even specific airbnbs to consider? My initial thought is some sort of mountainous desert area near public lands in AZ or something, where we could possibly get some hiking in and get a place with wide open views. But I could see a place in the smoky mountains region being equally awesome as well. Thoughts?

Taos.

Next question.

Hot Springs would be cool too. Closer to Dallas. Big Ben is nice in the winter. 

And actually Taos is pretty snowy in the winter so unless you're skiing it would be a better spring or summer trip.

Ritz Dove Mountain, north of Tucson.  Great hiking, incredible scenery, and a great hotel.  Very secluded
