Family dinners can be enjoyed together at our large dining room table or you can grill on the deck overlooking the mountains.

The master bedroom has a kingsize bed (very firm mattress) and is tucked away at the back of the house. You can access the hot tub via the master and there is a private t.v. seating area and 40' flat screen. Bedroom 2 has a queen sized bed and Bedroom 3 has 2 twins.

About Chad Holtz

We purchased our lovely home from an Artist couple in 2010. Inside you'll notice some very special touches they made when they created this home. It's not your run of the mill mountain house. The floors are reclaimed local wood laid out in a herringbone pattern thoughout the main floor living area and master bed room.

We have family and friends now living in Colorado and Minturn is a most welcoming small town! The home now gives us opportunity to share time with our sons and daughters-in-law who live in the area and also love to ski and hike.

For now, we would love to share our home with other active skiing,hiking families until we can be there year around. Our son, Chad is our property manager. He and wife Kelli live in the area and can help you with any logistics!

Hope we can share our home with YOU!

Why Chad Holtz chose Minturn

We love to ski at Vail and Beaver Creek. There are numerous hiking trails, xc ski trails, great restaurants and events in the Vail Valley and right in Minturn. We are close to it all and best of all Minturn has the charm of a small close community without all the glitzy glamour,so the area takes on a 'real people' feel!

What makes this house unique

Maloit Park has added groomed XC ski trails and a snowshow system. You can downhill ski back to Minturn via the Minturn Mile off the back of Vail. Minturn Market is a fun Saturday experience and Thursday Concerts at Little Beach Park are right across the street.

Couldn't have been happier

  • 5 of 5

First, this was my first trip to Minturn; actually hadn't heard of it prior to the visit, but a buddy told me to check it out. Minturn is a small town just south of 70 between Vail and Eagle-Vail. It's a great little town with plenty of restaurants, bars, an angler's shop with some great guys, a bike shop with an awesome mechanic, and a lot of antiques. Don't miss Sticky Fingers for breakfast...the cinnamon role is a must. Lastly, in the summer they have live music across the river, and I sat out on the front balcony of the home and was able to easily here the music under the stars. It was perfect.

Okay, about the house. I was in town for a bike race in Leadville, and needed a place to work, relax, focus, and train. The house provided that and more. Though I was a solo traveler, you could easily sleep 8. The master bedroom has a study attached and a beautiful walk-in bathroom, shower, closet combo...tons of space. The bed was comfortable and I was able to sleep with all the windows open each night to bring in the cool air (actually cold in the morning, but I'm from TX, so it was welcome).

The house is well equipped with a sound system, high end appliances, well marked and abundant accessories, Wifi, TV and DVD with DVDs, washer/dryer, an office with murphy bed that is also a playroom, a nice dining and living room with a comfortable, large couch, a loft for a couple kids to sleep, a hot tub, and two outdoor areas in the front and back.

Upon arrival, I was concerned about the noise from the road, but it really never bothered me. The house is situated on route 24, but the traffic and noise was never an issue; the house is further from the road than most. The garage is very large and I easily fit my 4-runner and bike rack could probably fit 2 cars in there. Upon entering the garage, you will find two bedrooms; one with twin beds and the other a queen with a shared bathroom.

In terms of location. I used this as my jumping off space: plenty of mountain bike trails, hiking, 7 minutes from Lionshead, another 5 to Vail Village. You're within 5 minutes of two large grocery stores (one near a decent sushi restaurant); 10 minutes from Wal-Mart; and a ton of restaurants in both directions.

Okay, I'm about out of space. In summary, I will definitely come fact, I can't wait. I loved everything about my stay in Minturn and this home. I highly recommend it if you don't need to be in the ski resorts yet want easy access. This is your place!

This house exceeded our expectations in every way. The pictures don't even give it justice to how amazing it is. It is very spacious, has every amenity you would need, and we can't wait to stay there again!

House well worth staying In

  • 5 of 5

I would stay at this home again. The attention to details the owner has put into the house are fantastic. The views are to die for. Everything is labeled well so that you are able to find everything. The furnishings are great. I stayed here for the weekend with 4 other fellow crew chefs that were working on a hiking trail in town. Everyone loved the place and would come back.

Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends took a long weekend to go snowmobiling. We opted to try this property in Minturn, close to Vail. I spoke with Chad in advance just to get comfortable with the arrangements. When we arrived, the house and amenities were perfect. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom...all of which were very well maintained. Everything was as good, or better than advertised. There is a grocery store about 15 minutes away in Vail and a pretty good local restaurant in Minturn called Magustos. We would definitely come back to this location and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The Perfect Place you can call Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 5 1/2 months. We were really impressed with how home-like this house felt to us. When we first arrived we were immediately impressed because they had set out a pack-n-play for our 6 month old daughter! Chad has set up this house for short stays or even long stays like we had. There are many beautiful windows and a great deck looking out on the river and the surrounding cliffs! We will certainly come back here in the future! It would be hard to find a house like this elsewhere in the area.

During our stay we had multiple people over and everyone always commented about how nice a place it was: from the windows, to the location, to the hardwood floors, the hot tub, and kitchen. But my favorite was the heated garage which is a luxury in Minturn. We shared a lot of good times with friends and family during our stay! Located in Minturn, its minutes from Vail or Avon or even a short walk to Main St in Minturn especially during the farmers market on Saturdays!

Chad did a very good job answering our questions quickly and providing an amazing stay for us. During our time here the fridge went out on us, but Chad was quick to work with getting a new fridge installed! Thanks Chad, we really appreciated the house and loved our stay!

We recently enjoyed New Year's and the first week of January at this wonderful property in Minturn, and I must say that we were more than thrilled. The pictures do not do it justice, it was so well appointed and comfortable, we enjoyed a few bottles of wine in front of the fire after a great day skiing!!

we will definitely be back!!

Thanks for sharing such a great place.
