Nestled high in the Rockies in the historic town-site of Garfield, The 1st Chair Chalet is just 3 miles to Monarch Mountain Skiing, 16 miles to historic downtown Salida, and walking distance to Monarch Lodge's amenities.

This cozy 2 story, 2 bedroom, 2 bath chalet sits by the the South Fork of the Arkansas River with private fishing access. The creek cascades and eddies through the back yard creating a mesmerizing visual and sonic landscape enjoyable from the redwood deck and private hot tub.

Garfield, CO (also known as Monarch), elevation 9500', is six miles east of the Continental Divide surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. 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.

Gorgeous and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The stay was wonderful. The cabs in was so quaint and cute. I loved the winding staircase and the hot tub was the cherry on top! The only complain I have is that there were visible spiders/spiderwebs behind the dryer, I really don’t like spiders but I thought that was unacceptable because of the hefty cleaning fee. Other than that it was perfect. Gorgeous home, peaceful nature, and it was deep in the mountains. I do hope to rent this property again in the future!

We want to come back when it's warmer to sit on the deck and enjoy the stream out back. Kitchen was well supplied with what we needed to cook and sleeping was wonderful. Thank you!

Loved the hot tub! We were glad there were no neighbors staying in the adjacent cabins! It made it very private. Everything was very clean. Perfect for my husband and I.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year, came back this year to stay longer. We enjoyed the rambling creek from the deck, the fire pit, wood stove and hot tub. A very relaxing place after a long day of Jeep trails. Wish we were still there.
