This is the Canyon Hideout Bungalow. It’s a refurbished 1958 Airstream trailer that’s been turned into a one-of-a-kind Airbnb cabin on an 80-acre property in Cortez, Colorado.
It’s magnificent! Take a look for yourself. Not to mention, it’s resting under a 900+-year-old Juniper tree, according to the Airbnb listing. What do you think?

1958 Airstream Canyon Hideout in Cortez, Colorado
An Airstream Setup Like A Cabin — How Do You Like This Concept?
The scenery looks like something out of a fairytale, doesn’t it?
I really love the cozy outdoor setup here. The lighting, the grill, the wood, the flooring, the views, everything…
Inside, it’s beautiful! You can tell the Airstream has been renovated.
But it still has that retro/modern style. I absolutely love it.
There’s a place to sit and eat, cook and prepare meals, sit and relax, and, of course, sleep.
Floating storage above the kitchen and dining area.
Privacy curtains and mood lighting throughout.
The cozy bedroom with built-in storage and lighting.
Nice artwork in the bedroom, too.
Where’s the bathroom? It’s an outhouse.
It’s pretty nice, though, isn’t it? With tiny homes, sometimes, it just makes sense to build and use an outhouse.
Another view of the Airstream cabin.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the epic views.
Totally refurbished 1958 Airstream trailer (retro/contemporary).
Its on the same 80+ acre property as our other Airbnb Cabin.
Tucked in the private red rock canyons under a 900+ year old Juniper tree, this private bungalow has everything you need. Miles of hiking into the Canyon of the Ancients National Monument. Perfect for nature lovers and hikers.

Shangri-La. Even with the separate bathroom.
Very nice arrangement especially for such a small area but certainly doable.
Really great refurbishing job. It’s lovely and cozy and inviting. The ambience is perfect. Great place for a get away.
fabulous and I loved the couch.
soooo cute! I love the modern outhouse, even though you have to go outside to potty and shower, but it is CERTAINLY adorable!
Unless it has adequate insulation, which I’d doubt due to its construction, it’d be fearful cold in winter, especially in snow zones.
I thought of that! Those metal walls. Brr.
I wonder if it’s possible to cover one of these on the outside with some sort of insulation and top cover in the winter? Like what they wrap yurts with? It wouldn’t be particularly pretty but might cut the cold. I’m guessing the insulation is minimal in these things.
They are used in Mongolia, works fine in cold climate.
Only if you’re comparing it to a tent, hut, or old style cabin or cottage… Nice heat source can compensate for a lot but without a good heat source is the real test of whether something works fine or not in cold climates and you can actually get a full nights sleep without running the heat constantly… Makes a difference if you have a heat source you have to maintain manually like a wood stove, for example, or just don’t want to spend a lot on heating…
Though, Airstreams are not just a metal structure. They’re actually wood framed with an inner and outer aluminum paneling that is riveted or just the exterior, depending on the specific model.
Like most RV’s there’s little to no insulation but they do try to provide a minimum thermal break and aluminum does act as a radiant heat reflector. So not as bad as say a steel structure would work…
If you renovate one, you can always thicken the walls to maintain the appearance but add more insulation…
Just spent most of quarantine in Cortez!! Very nice place. The town is directly next to Mesa Verde Nat Park, which is spectacular. Within a few miles of the Four Corners, so you can get to many Nat Parks & Monuments like Arches & Canyonlands in Moab Utah, Dead Horse Point State Park in Moab, where the final scene of *Thelma & Louise* was filmed, hou can rent jeeps or 4 wheelers to go explore the amazing terrain. You can also get to Los Alamos, Sunset Crater & Wupatki, in Arizona, Grand Canyon, Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, and many more.
Cortez itself has two grocery stores & a Walmart, good food-recommend you read reviews to find the best for yr taste, many stores that should be in process of reopening. The drive up & thru the San Juan mountains is SPECTACULAR, into Telluride, Ouray, Durango. Durango is the largest, for stuff u couldn’t get in Cortez. Funky olde West places, with *mod cons*. And mountain sheep!! Mule deer, road runners, elk, coyotes, prairie dogs, rock squirrels. Rock climbing, hiking, horseback, much more. Shiprock is the center of the Navaho Nation, look for fry bread trucks & vendors of Native crafts, herds of long fleeced sheep, wild and free range horses & cows.
A great place to visit!!
That’s so great to know. Thanks for sharing, Judith!
I’d love to stay here!
