I have driven by this Lodge many, many times, often wondering what the inside looked like and how the stay would be...what a waste of my time to NEVER get out of my car and venture in to see! In September of this year(2012)my car broke down right in front. The Staff WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY(Who does that anymore!?)to #1, look at my auto to decide if I would be safe to drive it. #2, to immediately carry in all my bags and make sure I was comfortable in my room when it was decided my car would be towed in the am. #3, although the Restaurant was closed, offered me food. #4, I stayed there 2 nights and 3 whole days and was taken care of, all my needs were met and I made some very good friends. Monarch Mountain Lodge will no longer be a 'drive by' for me, I will stay the night from now on. Who cares about the extra day in my travels, the beauty of the land surrounding this Lodge, the beauty of the people running this establishment and of course, the Hot Tubs under the sky at night, the Indoor Heated Pool that was the cleanest I'd ever seen, the Sauna that actually worked, the Showers and Work Out Equipment are an absolute plus. Oh, and did I mention the FAIR prices!??? WOW! I will most definitely be recommending this Lodge and have many more nights there to write about. If you've never been, you have missed a 'GEM' in the Rocky Mountains!!! I'd like to thank Rik, Nikki, Ricky and of course, Duane for making a disastrous trip an exciting adventure! In the infamous words of Arnold, "I'll be back!"
