Our family had an absolutely wonderful time in your cozy mountain cabin. We enjoyed playing in the snow and exploring around this magnificent cabin! We spent time skiing at Monarch and a day snowmobiling- so nice to be so close to everything! Your cabin and beautiful property provided a very memorable spring break for our family. Thank you!

Thank you for opening up your home! The Views are amazing. Loved all the special details you put in and outside your home. Gorgeous!! We drove out from Dallas, TX and decided to stay a few nights up here before heading down to Denver for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed being able to relax and enjoy the beauty all around us!

What a wonderful place! It's a picture postcard. The snow surprised us, only brought tennies. We'll come again I'm sure! The lodge is extraordinary & the views are without compare. Thanks so much for having us. Mike & Glenda.

First off, this place is absolutely remarkable. Way better than any of my family could have imagined. The scenery was breathtaking and the details inside & outside the home make you feel a part of nature. The mine next door was never an issue and was a unique scene coming and going from the home. The 3 children absolutely had a blast while fishing and hiking on the property. The deer that visited on a morning were a joy and made the morning so beautiful for us. The deck was also very relaxing to everyone as we sat and enjoyed time with one another. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family. This is a vacation we will treasure always.

From the picturesque view to the "over the top" amenities, this home is #1! We knew from the moment we drove up this would be a vacation to remember! Waking up w/a coffee on the deck & just taking the mt. view in was AMAZING!! Our children enjoyed fly fishing in the pond... if only you could have seen their faces as they proudly held a trout in their hands :). I love to cook & the kitchen was perfectly designed to accommodate our meal prep. The beds were very comfortable!! I don't think you could take a bad picture out here! Found myself mesmerized at times by the beauty you were able to share w/us! Wheat a PRIME LOCATION!! We even visited Great Sand Dunes Nat'l Park (2nd time) because it was only 1 1/2-2 hour drive, but staying home & relaxing was NOT HARD to do! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!

Annoying quirks

  • 3 of 5

This house is nice but it feels like the owners need to do a lot of basic maintenance. The locks are crap and we had to leave 30 mins early for everything to get them locked. They fell off upon our arrival. There is a rats nest of toys in the living room. The rug smells gross and nothing would air out the living room because of it. The fireplace had no instructions so we couldn't get it to work. There are definitely nice living in there. With a little more upkeep would be a great place but felt ripped off due to the daily annoyances.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is #1. Everything is well kept, higher end and all in a Beautiful spot. The views are amazing and you simply can't get enough of the scenery. Our lab loved the site, she could run, it was fun to hike and pretty close to day trips for fun and food. Thanks for allowing pets and sharing your wonderful home. This is one location that you do not want to miss. Best house we have rented and we have stayed in some lovely homes. Monarch is quiet and not crowded. We Highly recommend this property.
