Monarch Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
Old-Timer Cabin is 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.
