Blogger Spotlight: Chloe goes to Colorado

By Jessica Armstrong

Colorado is always a perfect choice for fall glamping, and Chloe of Time Travel Blonde can tell you that firsthand. After visiting this breathtaking cabin in Longs Peak, Chloe has a thing or two to share about how to do glamping right. One thing she made sure to pack for the adventure? Her adorable family, to share the experience of glamping together for the first time.

Follow along for the ride as Chloe shares the ins and outs of her stay with her family to this beautiful cabin in Colorado.

What is your favorite part about glamping in the fall and why?

I loved glamping in the fall because of the fall foliage. Colorado has some of the best in the country and to be in the thick of it is just amazing. What we especially loved about our mountain cabin was being up in the mountains, completely surrounded by trees. It was stunning!

Do you prefer to go glamping solo? In small groups or big group?

I prefer both small and big groups. I love going glamping with my husband, our son, and our dog—making memories just us. However, it's also so fun going traveling with friends! Being with my family is more relaxing, where as being in a big group is just a fun party. It just depends on how we're feeling!

What is one of your most memorable glamping experiences?

Probably this one to Nederland was our most memorable. We had never gone glamping as a family before, so to bring Cam along for the fun was so sweet and memorable. We also love staying in cabins in National Parks, such as Bryce Canyon and San Dunes! It's so fun! I can definitely see many more glamping trips in our future.

No tossing and turning for these glampers- Chloe found all the comforts of her own home in this rustic cottage.

What has glamping taught you about travel and nature?

What I love about glamping is that it can be as slow-paced or as adventure-driven as you would like it to be. For us, we loved being completely surrounded by nature and being able to reconnect, with out having to sacrifice comfort. Being so surrounded by nature was such a nice reminder to get off our phones and laptops and just enjoy each others company. However, when we do feel active, I love being able to walk out the front door and go on some amazing hikes!

What is your favorite type of accommodation and why?

I love all different kinds: unique houses, cabins, five-star hotels...My husband and I have traveled throughout the world and have so many fond memories of all the different accommodations that we've stayed in. From camping in Europe to traditional huts in Thailand, it just makes the memories that much better!

What trends do you follow when planning a glamping getaway?

I always think of what season it is when planning a trip. When we planned our glamping trip, we knew we wanted to be up in the mountains to catch a glimpse of the leaves changing. Colorado is famous for having such beautiful fall leaves and that definitely played a part in our planning. Also, I love using Instagram for travel inspiration. I've learned about so many cool places from travel influencers, and it definitely sparks our wanderlust.

How has glamping changed the way you vacation?

One of the things that I loved most about glamping, especially with Cam, is that it feels more like home. We've got plenty of room to wash his bottles, play, another room for him to sleep in and put the baby monitor up (especially if we want to stay up without waking baby)...it's like all the comforts of home but while we're away! Being in a hotel is nice and all, but sometimes you feel so cramped, especially with how much we now bring for Camden.

Another aspect that we like about glamping is that it's a good way to get out into nature without having to sleep in a tent. Josh and I used to do a ton of dispersed camping here in Colorado before Cam arrived, and it was fun. But now that we have a little baby with us, I love that glamping still provides the nature aspect with out having to compromise comfort.

There's no better way to get in touch with nature than glamping out in a sea of green.
