Enjoy a getaway in this quaint and private mountain home surrounded by Aspens next to a roaring creek.

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.

Sleeps 5 to 7 with 1 queen in an upstairs bedroom, 1 full and 1 twin in another upstairs bedroom, and 1 full futon sofa in the living room.

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.

Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Nice spot. There was an incredible amount of road noise from across the highway (on the county road somewhere) which littered the peaceful mountain air. Not the owner's fault though.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comment. That was the weekend of the annual Colorado Hill Climb Race held on the mining road above town. It's quite a spectacle to behold. Unfortunately your stay was during the only 2 days of the event. I'll make an effort to to be aware of the date and alert guests in the future.

Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Bruce communicated all directions and instructions well, and we had everything we needed. The Jacuzzi next to the creek is AMAZING! definitely plan to visit again.

Perfect cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our honeymoon and couldnt have gotten anything better! The cabin is nice, clean, great views and very relaxing. Looks exactly like the photos posted. Nice deck area, clean hot tub and nice area for fires at night. Its not too far from town either maybe a 20 min drive or so. The cabin was perfect and so was the location, made for an amazing honeymoon for us!!

Great Get Away Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the 1st Chair Chalet. From the outside the cabin does not look that nice but the inside is updated and so cozy. The hot tub was a big hit along with the running river behind the house. It is the perfect get away cabin and only 5 minutes from Monarch. If your looking for a nice quiet get a way place this is it.
