Although this mountain lodge was not as fancy as some of the places we have stayed, for a summer weekend getaway it was perfect. Keep in mind this is a snow ski lodge and is a great place to stay during snow ski season. If you are looking for a nice quiet get away into the mountains where there is...

Tired from our drive across Colorado from Utah, we were happy to have a warm bed at end of day. Location is remote and we were very low on drinks and food. Plainly said, except for Monarch Ski, the Monarch Lodge is the only other business in town. But no worries with their staff, Marcus and Stella. Stella checked us...

The hotel is older and an obvious skiers' hotel in the winter, but the staff did a nice job with it all. We were glad to find a place that took pets and the lodge is located in a spectacular setting of fall aspens; good jumping off point for hiking. The small restaurant staff was a bit over powered by...

The wife and I decided to head up to Aspen to take pictures of the changing Aspens. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea as many hotels were completely booked. This hotel had a good rate going, so we decided to book here. The hotel is an older ski resort. However, it was VERY clean and it there were not...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Monarch Mountain Lodge is in the heart of the Rockies and surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest. Re-opened in Feb. 2015 Under new ownership, the guest rooms have been repainted, re-carpeted, and refurnished for a more modern feel. We've also put brand new tile in our lobby and restaurant, and fresh carpet in common areas. We are just 4 miles from the Monarch Mountain Ski Area, and given our unique location, the possibilities in terms of outdoor activities are virtually endless. ... more   less
