The Beyul Retreat in the Frying Pan River Valley is the perfect place near Aspen to hike, relax and disconnect from the stress of the everyday.
This year-round retreat is the ideal spot to cozy up this winter. Beyul—meaning hidden lands—is situated in the Frying Pan River Valley just above the Ruedi Reservoir. Formerly Diamond J Lodge, the property was purchased by Abby Stern and Reuben Sadowsky, who held a vision for a retreat based in health, wellness and connectivity. The 32-acre property sleeps 70 (or more) people and is situated adjacent to the river and magnificent forest, making this the ideal spot to unwind in the wilderness, host a wedding, birthday party, special dinners and yoga retreats—or simply get off the grid in a cozy cabin for some R&R.
The 13 cabins are decorated in a mountain-chic style and range in size, with one house sleeping up to 12. So just how does Beyul create a healthy, spiritual and cozy environment, making this the go-to winter retreat this season? On property you will find a hot tub, cold plunge and custom-built cedar sauna that provide the space for some relaxation and self-care. You can spend your days hiking in the snow on several of Beyul’s private hiking trails. Wake up and clip into cross-country skis for a winter workout on-property—it is a great way to explore while getting in the day’s cardio. After an active day in the cold, retreat to your cozy cabin for some hot chocolate or cocktails. Cook dinner in the cabin kitchen and snuggle up by the fireplace with a good book. Pro tip? Make sure to bring your own groceries for your stay, and make a quick trip to Skip’s Market before making the drive up to this dreamy destination. Beyul Retreat does have some food on-property in its highly curated shop, so be sure to check that out. There is no doubt you will leave this hidden land planning your next trip back. 26604 Frying Pan Road
