Choosing a Minturn vacation rental means choosing charm and history without compromising on convenience. As the oldest town in Vail Valley, Minturn offers a lovely, slower-paced alternative to its glamorous neighbors like Beaver Creek or Vail, but is still quite close to world-class ski resorts and year-round outdoor adventure. Minturn's charms include antique stores, galleries, and great local restaurants. After a day of skiing, stop for margaritas at the Minturn Saloon or stop by the Sticky Fingers cafe on the way to the mountain for a latte and a cinnamon roll. The winter months find skiers and snowboarders enjoying the historic charm just ten minutes from Vail proper, and the summer finds visitors flocking to the weekly Minturn Farmer's Market or to the Eagle River for kayaking and fishing. This old Western town has historic heft and a laid-back appeal you may not find in all parts of the Vail Valley, along with all the amenities and convenience of a resort town. When you're looking for an unconventional spot to book a Vail Valley vacation home, consider the charms of our Minturn rentals!
