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 expensive hotels, B&B's and typical 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. Latest improvements (Nov 2015) include slab granite, expanded wood flooring, custom fencing and dyed driveway and lots more. It is a single family home, no one attached over you, under or on either side!

Enjoy 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 with gas grill 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!

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 grill 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.
GENERAL RESERVATIONS - Five day minimum stay preferred, last minute shorter term may be available so contact Robin per your needs. Also, send your inquiry as you shop and I can let you know if dates will work with schedule at that time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I learned to ski in PA and NJ when I was 12, and dreamed of the skiing out west. I was fortunate to relocate to CO after college and teach skiing in Breckenridge for 2 seasons. Fortunate again (perhaps carefree), I moved to Denver and began my career in real estate and continue to be active working with Buyers and Sellers. BTW - your referrals are always welcome!

Why the Owner Chose Minturn, CO, USA:
Minturn is a charming mountain town, super convenient to Vail and Beaver Creek. I lucked upon the property to purchase years ago when I wasn't even looking, and made the investment as a second home and personal mountain getaway. I have always shared it with family, friends and customers, but never considered renting it until a friend with a vrbo short term rental in Hawaii told me about the high quality clientele the site attracts. My VRBO rental experiences have been awesome.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This property is very unique as you shop for places to stay in the Vail Valley. Finding a charming and immaculate cabin to make your Colorado "home away from home" is like finding a needle in a haystack. I pursue high quality gentle guests that recognize and appreciate my fair rates, are thrilled with their cabin stay, and return again and again over the years.
