About the property

3 Bed / 3.5 Bath : New Construction Built for Comfort

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.

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.

Best House We Have Rented!!!

  • 5 of 5

Minturn is a quaint town, close to hiking trails, fishing and other outdoor adventures. Tracy and Thom's beautiful house is located right on Main Street close to everything. It is a brand new Scandinavian design with literally everything you need in your home away from home! They were very intentional when stocking their kitchen. There are two living areas, one up and one down. We had five adults in our party for six days. Tracy is a ten star hostess. She and her husband live in Minturn, so they have great recommendations.

AMAZING home has it all!!!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

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!
