Cute little private home perfect for a ski getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. Incredibly close to Monarch, and not far from Salida for an evening out. The hot tub was a perfect end for a long day on the slopes. It is small, but our 4 adults fit in just fine. The property was well kept, had all of the amenities we needed, and had an easy check in/out process. Overall, I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends!

Nice stay for the area

  • 3 of 5

The mattress in downstairs bedroom was terrible-sunk down in the middle. Uncomfortable! Kitchen was fine. Bath & shower, washer & dryer were good. Very well insulated cabin. Very warm even with heaters turned down to 50 Dec. Hot tub was very nice. Could have had better lighting in downstairs bedroom & closet.

Clean little place close to slopes.

  • 2 of 5

The house is clean and very close to Monarch Ski Area. Hot tub is very small, really only barely fits 3 adults without overflowing. It was fairly windy during our stay and something on this property or the adjacent property made a lot of noise making it difficult to sleep. Overall it is a decent place at a decent price but not that special place that brings you back every year.

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Mirkwood cottage! It was very clean, with enough beds for all six of us, a large kitchen stocked with everything needed to cook and plenty of towels. The hot tub worked well. It was super close to Monarch Ski Area, one of our favorite places to ski! We are keeping it in mind for a summer stay!

Great Holiday Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this cozy cabin, it was the perfect size. Our family of 5 felt right at home celebrating Christmas on the slopes of Monarch. We had everything we needed. Whatever wasn't there, we were able to travel 15-20 mind down the mountain to Salida and get it there. The Inn up the road (walking, if you don't mind a small uphill stretch) was a nice place for me and my husband to have a bit of a date night. The only thing I would suggest is upping the Wifi usage and upgrading the TV in the downstairs bedroom. We where there during heavy snowfall and cable wasn't always available. We brought our ROKU to Netflix, but the limits on the DATA prevented us from watching. We utilized the DVD's but there was a very limited selection. Otherwise, it was a perfect stay. I'd give it 4 and 3/4 stars if I could.

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (Mom,Dad, 4 kids) had a great weekend of family time and skiing at Monarch. Everyone enjoyed the cabin, even though it was a bit tight. Very close to the slopes. We did have a heck of a time getting to the cabin because of a lot of fresh snow the night of our arrival (we drive a mini van), but the street in front was plowed the next morning and with the help of the kids we were able to shovel our way in and out. We do plan on returning!
