This home was newly built in 2016 but has a timeless appeal with all of the modern conveniences you would expect in a well appointed vacation home. The house was designed specifically for the comfort, enjoyability and relaxation of guests visiting the Vail Valley. No detail was overlooked. It is spacious, bright, and perfect for entertaining and gathering. The kitchen is a cook's dream kitchen: subzero fridge and wolfe range with a great deal of counter space. Each bedroom is a master bedroom with separate baths. There are many handcrafted design features that make this house special and memorable including the repurposing of the door from the original house built in 1939 turned into a cheerful powder room door. The rental is conveniently located in Minturn, just minutes from both Vail and Beaver Creek. Minturn is a quaint small town with character, and provides a quiet retreat at the end of the day from the more bustling ski resort areas. If you are looking for a smaller property, please refer to our other VRBO listing #50358. Thank you!

About Tracy and Thom
Tracy and Thom live in Minturn, CO with their 3 dogs, 10 chickens and 2 cats. They love to play in the outdoors hiking, skiing and biking and can do all of these activities just steps from their door. Thom has lived in the valley since he was 7 years old, and Tracy since 2003. Thom works as a contractor (he built this house!) and Tracy as a yoga instructor. We are local and available to help you have a great vacation.
Tracy and Thom purchased this House in 2006
Why Tracy and Thom chose Minturn
Thom has lived in the valley since he was 7 years old, and Tracy off and on since 1993. When we married, we knew we wanted to settle in Minturn. We love that it is a true small town, very quirky and eclectic. We love that it is both accessible to all of the amenities that Vail and Beaver Creek offer but also quiet when we come home. We felt very lucky to buy a house in Minturn. We love that we can see the mountains from the house, and we can walk from the house to access hiking and snowshoe trails without getting in the car.

The red house was amazing ! Like a 4 star hotel without room service😉�
It was the perfect accommodations for our family of 6 adults & 3 children.Lots of space to socialize or have your own quiet space.
The beds were very comfy & bathrooms & kitchen top notch .
Wish we could have stayed longer !!!
Tracy was terrific at handling things if there was s problem or question. You can also enjoy her art work throughout the house.
We are pleased as punch that you and your family enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure hosting you, truly. fondly, Tracy and Thom
Lovely home, attractively and interestingly decorated. Spotless.
We had a wonderful stay and will definitely book again.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for being such considerate and appreciative guests; we truly endeavor to make people feel comfortable. We would love to have you back. Sincerely, Tracy and Thom
AMAZING home has it all!!!!
We stayed here for our ski trip in January of this year (2018). We had 5 adults and 2 children and it could not have been more perfect for us! The group consisted of my husband and me; our two adult daughters; one son-in-law and two grandchildren. There are 3 large bedrooms with ensuite baths (2 up/1 down), and a sleeping loft upstairs. The two kids LOVED this!! They thought it was the BEST house ever!! There also is a 1/2 bath near the kitchen on the main floor.
It is all newly done, very spacious, has a FANTASTIC kitchen, lots of windows, and is a super convenient location in town. The radiant heat is probably the most comfortable type of heat available—warm floors and no “drafts” blowing on you.
Tracy and Thom were absolutely wonderful to work with, and very available for anything you might want or need. Plus, Joe, is on property as the property manager, and although you rarely, if ever, see him, he comes at a moment’s notice with a phone call.
Having the garage bay to park in was a treat as well! There is an apartment above the garage, which was rented to someone while we were there, but if we hadn’t met by chance in the garage once, we’d have never known he was there.
I honestly can’t say enough great things about this home!!! We will feel very lucky to rent it again on a future ski trip!!!!
Thanks, Tracy & Thom!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
We are so pleased that you and your entire multi-generational family enjoyed the house and your stay. We designed the house to comfortably accommodate families just like yours for ski and outdoor recreation trips or weddings. So, we appreciate the feedback that we are providing a great home base for visiting families. We hope to see you again next year! Sincerely, Tracy & Thom
MAGICAL MINTURN COTTAGE
This home is truly as "magical" as it looks. We had a delightful stay for our family last week. Tracy and Thom's home is charming, beautifully decorated and perfect for family time. The large family room, kitchen-dining area is perfect for entertaining and hanging out after outdoor fun! The sleeping areas are private and so comfortable for rest and relaxation. Minturn is delightful and a much quieter, cozier place to stay only minutes from ski resorts and amenities of Vail, CO! We will be back!
We loved the roominess of this home, especially the large kitchen area
We loved the location and the beautiful interior!
In town there was a Farmer's Market which we enjoyed. The open concept of the rental was well planned with a great kitchen. Spacious rooms with thoughtful touches! A home away from home! Thank you Tracy and Thom!
Wintertime activities center around snow: skiing or snow boarding, snow shoeing and snowmobiling. summertime in Minturn has the weekly minturn market, and a mini pop up outdoor drive-in movie theater.
