Located right between Beaver Creek and Vail is the little town of Minturn, Colorado.

A sleeping loft and den will allow the house to accommodate up to six people, so this one bedroom home is also a great choice for families or friends traveling together, as well.
The main living area is located upstairs, with a large and bright open living room, dining room, and kitchen. This space has slanted ceilings and lots of windows! There's a cozy couch for seating, an electric fireplace, and a flat screen TV. The dining room table seats four, and there is extra seating at the breakfast bar, so everyone can enjoy meals together.
The kitchen has beautiful wood cabinets, granite countertops, and all the appliances needed for memorable vacation meals and the dishwasher will make clean up super easy! You'll also find plenty of glasses, pots, pans, mugs, and plates. Make some banana pancakes before heading out to the slopes, or end a day of hiking with a huge, healthy spinach salad.
Out on the deck you'll find the private hot tub, and on the patio below, a gas grill. You'll find a soak in the hot tub is equally great on chilly winter evenings or cool summer ones! Plan an afternoon barbecue down below, followed by an evening soak on the deck.
The bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed and numerous of windows for natural light. There is a door out onto the deck for easy outside access. The bathroom is very spacious, with two sinks and a glass block, walk-in shower. Up a few ladder-type stairs is sleeping loft with two twin beds - a great place for kids!

In the winter, your ski chalet is only seven miles to both Vail and Beaver Creek - two world-class ski areas! After just a short drive, you can be flying down the slopes. There's also 225 miles of Forest Service trails for Nordic skiing. In the summer, these trails are also used for hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking. The Lionshead Rock hike includes a two mile climb up to a viewing point with amazing panoramic views of the town.
Dining options in charming Minturn are plentiful and varied. Kirby Cosmo's BBQ Bar is a local favorite with pulled pork, brisket, and wild Alaskan salmon grilled to order. In the morning, head to Sticky Fingers Cafe & Bakery for Vail Mountain Coffee, hot breakfasts, and freshly baked pastries. The walkable downtown area has everything for fly fishing shops to western antique stores, and everything in between.
No matter if you visit this Minturn vacation home in the winter for a classic Vail ski vacation or during the summer for a hiking and biking getaway in the Rocky Mountains, you'll never want to leave!
