Monarch Four Seasons Chalet is the get-away for our family in Colorado Springs and my home when I am working in the area.
We are located in the historic mining town of Garfield, CO (also known as Monarch). High in the Rockies at an elevation of 9500 feet, six miles east of the Continental Divide. Surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. Views of timbered slopes by day and star filled nights make this an Alpine setting you won't forget. Garfield originated as a mining town in the early 1800's. In the latter part of the century a fire swept through town leaving only 3 original buildings, The School House, a log cabin and the Courthouse/Jail which is now known as the Old Timer Cabin. Scattered throughout the area you will find foundations of original mining cabins from 200 years ago!
This is the perfect family retreat for a ski vacation or summer mountain retreat. For you avid Mountain Bikers, The Monarch Crest Trail, one of the best trails in North America, is located just 4 miles west on Hwy 50, Monarch Pass.
Hike, Bike, Hunt, Fish, Ski, Snowmobile, Snowshoe, Kayak, Raft, ATVing, Hot Springs, Ghost within minutes from this cabin. Summers are a great time for outdoor activities. Mountain biking on the Monarch Crest Trail (rated as one of the top ten mountain bike trails in the nation), hiking to pristine mountain lakes right from the front door, whitewater rafting in the Arkansas River, panning for gold or rock-hounding at the nearby sites. Walk to the Monarch Mountain Lodge for a great meal or make your own at the cabin and star gaze while relaxing on the deck.
