Affordable Family Cabin Rentals
Choose from three completely furnished, clean, family sized cabins. Mt Magic is located in the small historic mining town of Monarch, formarly Garfield, a registered ghost town. Mt View and Sunset, secluded cabins, are nine miles north west of Salida. Mountain Cabins are surrounded by San Isobel Natinal forest from 7,000 to 9,700 feet elevation, providing cool summers and snowy winters.
Vacation in the panaroma of the Rocky Mountains. Drive to the top of Monarch Pass 11,000 ft elevation. This is the "Continental Divide" where rivers flow east or west. The views of mountain peaks are breathtaking. This is God's country.
View the famous "Fourteeners" from the Arkanas River Valley. The Collegiate Peaks include Mt Princeton, Yale, Columbia,Harvard and Oxford. Mt Antero, Tabeguache and Shavano are part of the Mesqueto Range. South of Salida are the Sangre de Cristos.
Climb a fourteener and leave your name in a box in the clouds.
"Starry, Starry Nights"
The night sky is unbelieveably beautiful. Gaze at a gazillion stars including the Milky Way, Pleiades (Seven Sisters), Orion, Ursa Major & Minor. Metiors streak the sky.
My husband Bill once said of Monarch & the Salida area "This place is Heaven on earth, skiing, snowmobiling, rafting, fishing, hiking and hunting. What more can a person want?" It's been 42 years and I still agree.
