About Matthew B. Miller

I moved to Salida, CO in 2003 to raft guide on the Arkansas River with Independent Whitewater after guiding in Alaska, West Virginia, and Texas. I worked for the Guest Services Department at Monarch Mountain that winter. I quickly fell in love with the mountains, rivers, and people in the Arkansas River Valley. I now enjoy being the Manager of Guest Services, skiing, and am still guiding local rivers.

Matthew B. Miller purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Matthew B. Miller chose Monarch

I bought the Snowshoe Inn because it's as close as you can get to Monarch Mountain and because the owner, builder, and friend who previously owned it was willing to owner finance me. It's hard to get a home loan as a raft guide/ski bum!

What makes this cabin unique

The hand crafted Snowshoe Inn has a cozy, welcoming feel to it. It was built in 1977 with 130 year old barn wood interior from a local ranch and has hand hewn timbers from the local Lilly Mine which mined gold and silver in 1800s. With wooden skis from the 1940s, old sleds, historic Monarch photos, and ice skates it's like a little museum of Monarch, ski, and winter sports nostalgia.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the Snowshoe Inn! Thanks so much for your hospitality and popping in to say "hello". It was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the family after a day of wonderful Monarch skiing. Loved the movies and games! We'll be back!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The Snowshoe Inn was perfect for our family get together. We had ample space for everyone (10 and 1 pup) to eat, sleep and reacquaint. My son cooked gourmet meals for 10 in the kitchen as the rest of us talked and watched classic movies. The location near Monarch Ski Resort (5 minutes) sealed the deal this year and our experience will bring us back.

Repeat customer--wonderful cabin for family and groups!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (4 kids) have been visiting the Snowshoe Inn for the past several years-- I think 4 years now and loving it! We usually come for 4-5 days during the Christmas holiday or for Spring skiing. We've brought up to 10 people (lots of kids) for birthday events and ski trips and it's so convenient...5 minutes to Monarch...and Salida is just down the road with great shops, food and entertainment. The sleeping arrangements are perfect for my kids with a private bedroom for my husband and I. The kitchen is great for family meals and saving on eating out. It's also great because we can bring our well-behaved dogs and there's no worry about leaving anyone behind. We will continue to visit this terrific vacation cabin and our favorite ski area, Monarch.

Thanks Miller!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin was clean and perfect! We had 8 people stay (6 adults and 2 kids) and all had a soft place to sleep. My dad who is 56 years old did say the ladder to the loft was hard on his bear feet, but he like to complain :) . Plenty of channels on the TV to watch and plenty of DVD's and board games to pick out. The heater and the fireplace warm the cabin up fast! It was a wonderful stay! Thanks!

Cozy, Quaint Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, warm, and quaint is how I would describe the Snowshoe Inn.. We had a great time skiing at Monarch Mountain which is only 3 miles up the road.. The cabin easily sleeps 10 and is great for kids, as well as adults. Miller was very accommodating as we ran out of propane and he saved the day! The house had everything we needed, including spices that we forgot! Can't wait for next spring break at the Snowshoe Inn:)

The house was great. It had everything we needed and it was close to the slopes. Kids enjoyed the house and sledding nearby. We will certainly be going back. The only thing lacking was cable and internet access for my husband who is a news junkie.
