Thinking about visiting Vail, Colorado or its sister resort, Beaver Creek this winter? Consider staying in Minturn, a tiny little historic town that is conveniently located between the two ski resorts, just three miles south of I-70.
Locals love Minturn for its historic character, easy access to the backcountry, convenience to the resorts and lower prices. In summer, Minturn is home to both the Minturn Market (Saturdays, June – September) and the mother of all rummage sales, the Minturn Rummage sale. In winter, Minturn is a favorite destination of backcountry skiers who drop out of Vail’s Game Creek Bowl onto the fabled Minturn Mile, ending up at the Minturn Saloon for a celebratory libation or two.
Minturn is also a lovely stopover when you’re driving along I-70 or Colorado Highway 24, a Colorado Scenic Byway, that winds past Camp Hale, through Leadville and beyond.
Whether you’re passing through or staying for an extended ski vacation, consider staying in authentic, historic, Minturn and $ave. Minturn Home Rentals offers a variety of vacation rental homes at much lower rates than you’ll find in Vail and Beaver Creek.
If you prefer a hotel over a vacation rental, check out the exquisite Hotel Minturn, a boutique hotel with only four rooms that offers privacy, comfort, and understated luxury, Minturn-style. Owner/developer Tom Sullivan is a master craftsman, and you’ll love the details that make Hotel Minturn so special.
