It's probably no coincidence that so many of our dream homes are located in Colorado. Let's face it, the place is stunning: you get woodland, mountains, beautiful streams – and there are so many gorgeous homes that make the most of the awesome views. If you've been dreaming about a room with a view and a slower pace of life closer to nature, you'll want to check these out.

1. Woodland views from the hot tub
They had us at the hot tub. Just imagine soaking in this outdoor tub while looking out on all those trees? This is seriously Zen – but, actually, this home (opens in new tab) is located only a short walk from downtown Aspen. And while the views from the outdoor decked area are our favorite thing about this property, it also features NYC designer David Mann-designed interiors. So, the best of both worlds: nature and contemporary design.
2. The house that's all windows
To be honest, it would be a shame not to have all those windows in this gorgeous four-bedroom house (opens in new tab) in Snowmass Village. With so much greenery all around the property, you want to be looking out onto it all the time. You can contemplate nature from the lounge, all of the bedrooms, and the music room. The perfect retreat from busy life.
3. The modern home with dramatic mountain views
If you love mountains, you'll fall in love with this spectacular home (opens in new tab) in Telluride. The views speak for themselves, really, especially the breathtaking panoramic views of the iconic Wilson Peak from the bedrooms. The whole house was built to fit into the surrounding landscape, and the result is amazing.
4. The house with a hiking trail right next to it
If your favorite thing to do is walking, this could be your dream home (opens in new tab). Located in the Snowmass Village area, it has a hiking trail and a stream running right outside; we couldn't think of a more relaxing place to be – just imagine coming back to a game of chess with this view!
