Minturn Ski Cabin Near Vail & Beaver Creek - 5 STAR RATING!

Bedrooms 2
Space 710 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Cabin is ideal for 1-4 guests, and a refreshing alternative to the more expensive hotels, B&B's and other rental condos in the Vail/BC/Minturn area. For potential guests seeking one bedroom places because that's all you need, don't rule out and miss this charming property because it has an extra room (perfect for reading, hanging, spreading out your gear) and likely offers more for less money than competing one bedroom places.

EXCLUSIVELY offered on VRBO, check out this truly special and unique vacation two bedroom ski cabin in Minturn! Original log cabin built in the 1940's, and over the years expanded, remodeled, upgraded and updated on a continual basis for owner's personal enjoyment and guests too! Most recent include slab granite, expanded wood flooring, custom fencing, raised flower bed, new dyed driveway and lots more! This is a single family home with no one attached over, under or on either side! Enjoy private parking, gas grill on rear patio and another for your convenience next to the front door.

Awesome fenced private rear yard (spring thru fall) with stone patio, gas grill, fire pit, professional landscaping and mountain views.

Layout is open and cheerful, enjoy cozy gas fireplace in living room with queen sofa bed, and two bedrooms each with full sized beds, flannel sheets and down comforters.

Delightful open kitchen and wonderful private outdoor space makes dining in a treat, or choose from several wonderful Minturn eateries within short 0-3 block walk. Room service also available 11 A.M. - 2 A.M. thanks to restaurant Magustos free cabin delivery, menus at cabin provided.

This cabin oozes with charm both inside and out. Interior decor is quality western theme and very comfortable. Yard and patio very private. Complimentary for guests: WIFI, mountain bikes (2), gas grills and fire pit on patio,(spring - fall), snowshoes (3 sets), and sleds in the winter.

Easy 5.5 mile drive to Vail and Beaver Creek ski areas, and all of the amenities they each offer. Public transportation convenient (as in bus stop), just 1 block away.

Cabin shall be professionally cleaned for your arrival and upon your departure, at no additional expense. MAY be pet friendly with owner approval, PLEASE make note with your inquiry.

EXTENDED STAY RESERVATIONS - I prefer booking my longer stay guests first, and then reserve dates for shorter stays in between. Guests staying 30+ consecutive nights are exempt from the sales and lodging tax, and should call me direct to discuss their particular needs and pricing. 303-888-2255

About Robin Adamson

I started skiing at age 12 (seemed old at the time) at small ski areas in PA and NJ. The learning curve was much longer back then, it took 2+ days just to stay on the rope tow to the top of the hill without falling. Love of the sport and dreams of skiing out west, had me packing after college and heading west. Arriving in Breckenridge, I was hired on with the ski school and had two memorable seasons teaching all ages to ski. Next stop Denver, and I have been helping people buy and sell real estate ever since. BTW - your real estate referrals are always welcome! Robin 303-888-2255

Robin Adamson purchased this cabin in 1986

Why Robin Adamson chose Minturn

Minturn is a charming mountain town, and very convenient to Vail and Beaver Creek. I lucked upon this cabin years ago (when I wasn't even looking), and the decision to purchase and remodel for my very own ski cabin/vacation home took about 5 minutes to make. Charm of Minturn and the cabin centrally located (within 0-3 blocks) amongst multiple restaurants, bars and shopping yet within a 10 minute drive to Vail and BC sold me on Minturn.

My VRBO experience thus far has been a pure pleasure! Everyone has loved my cabin, the town of Minturn, proximity to major ski areas, hiking, golf, fishing, biking and the list goes on. Several past guests have even purchased their own vacation homes in Minturn since staying at mine.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is fun, has an open layout, super comfortable, very well appointed, and a fantastic value as you shop and compare your lodging options in the Vail Valley. When I joined VRBO I focused on attracting high quality gentle guests that would recognize and appreciate finding a really special place for their mountain getaway, and so pleased they return again and again over the years. As Owner, booking repeat guests is easy and stress free knowing they are great guests. I don't charge extra for cleaning or for a 4-legged family member traveling w/guests, guest quality is my goal not squeezing every dollar possible from my guests. I value my repeat guests and treat them exactly how I like to be treated when I am the guest. On the flip side for prospective guests that are reading this now... Is it fun and exciting for just me or everyone starting a brand new search for lodging at a destination they've just decided to visit? And then do you find it becomes less fun and then no longer fun and you are still searching? Guest Advantage finding the perfect place to stay again and again (regardless if it is mine or any other perfect property for your needs), just reach out to the owner and book! OWNER/GUEST WIN/WIN!

Minturn Ski Cabin Near Vail & Beaver Creek - 5 STAR RATING!

Cozy and close!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully renovated cabin! Very clean and well stocked. We were walking distance to all the good restaurants in Minturn and just a few minutes from the Vail scene. We rode bicycles to a great coffee/breakfast spot in the morning and cooked outside almost every night. Staying again this winter for quick access to Vail and Beaver Creek. Book it!

Love the Cozy Ski Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was a return stay at the ski cabin in Minturn - I returned because I love the cabin and there is no other place in the Vail Valley that I would rather stay!

It is both well located and perfectly appointed! The cabin is 6 minutes from the Lionshead parking structure, a couple of minutes from several hiking/snowshoe trail heads, and about 15 miles to Nordic sports areas of the Camp Hale and Cooper Mountain. Several of Minturn's best places are just a short walk: Turntable, Minturn Saloon, and Kirby Cosmos's BBQ.

The cabin has off street parking for 2 to 3 cars. The beds are super comfy and shower water pressure is great. The cabin is cozy while still having plenty of space for four people. The kitchen is well appointed - I cook a lot and wanted for nothing --- everything I needed was right there. I like to say the cabin comfortably drinks 8, eats 4 and sleeps 4!

Finally, this place is adorable! Decor is of Colorado and the great American west. It is fun to be in the space! Some of the greatest memories of my life have been made it this cabin. I plan to return again and again.

Really want to give it 1 star so nobody else will find out about this gem, but couldn't do that to the owner.

Really the perfect little cabin.

Owner's Response: Glad you and your wife enjoyed your stay, thanks for being great guests! Minturn is a fun town and the cabin is incredibly convenient to Vail and BC. Ski Cooper near Leadville is a hidden gem for skiers looking for affordable skiing in the area, and fairly convenient to cabin as well.

Quaint, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Amazing cottage very close to the slopes, but away from the hustle. We rented Robin's cabin over New Years and could not have been more pleased. Just minutes from Vail, great time. Absolute home run.

Owner's Response: Considering the fact that you are a consultant in the travel business, I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay at my cabin! Majority of my guests are repeat, and I look forward to having lots more snow for your next Vail/BC ski adventure!

Home is the perfect spot to all Vail Valley.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was comfortable and convenient to all the areas we visited. The owner is considerate and responds quickly when scheduling. The cabin is just like home providing a great back yard area for grilling and relaxing under the stars while roasting marshmallows over the fire. The kitchen is well stocked and beautiful. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable. This home's style is unique, and beautifully decorated while providing entertainment and comfort. Our father and mother were traveling with us and having all one floor was a bonus for them, no steps! We enjoyed visiting our son who lives nearby and day trips to Leadville.Glenwood Springs, Frisco, and the top of Vail mountain via a gondola ride. We would love to keep this cozy cabin a secret but everyone should know how what a great home this is in the town of Minturn. The Mantle family.

Cozy, Comfortable & Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Don't be fooled by the size of this little cabin in's a perfect location right on Main Street. It also offers all the modern amenities you could want in your accommodations. The cabin has been updated with granite countertops, nice fridge, dishwasher and stovetop on the kitchen island. The "very private" fenced in backyard is great for enjoying the evening fresh air while watching your pup play in a contained area. The cabin is extremely quiet with thick (original) walls so the two bedrooms offer a good nights rest on comfortable beds. We found this cabin to be a perfect spot for our week stay in Minturn.
