Apres-ski in the converted historic Minturn Rectory in the heart of Vail and Beaver Creek. A ski retreat perfect for families and groups: "Ad-hoc Luxe" styles infuse the atmosphere with escape, warmth, and relaxation. Savor the crackling wood burning fireplace and covered hot tub as snow descends against Lion's Head rock & cliffs overhead. A true skier's chalet - tons of storage and seating/bedding. Next door to a gastro-pub/bar & river, walking distance: 4 bars, 6 eateries, and shopping
Walk next door to great barbecue, pizza, local drafts, cocktails from local craft distillers, and so much more - I can't say enough about the town and the holiday cheer in the air here during the winter.
Hot tub is great for soaking in after enjoying the mountain life. And the oversized and massive fireplace is amazing for huge wood fires at night with family or friends gathered around. We have had 4 families and a full 15 people here for days - probably doesn't handle 15 adults well, but 8-10 adults and the rest being kids or teens is great!
Upstairs is an amazing and enchanting space with a seperate TV area for the kids to enjoy and leave the inspirational downstairs to the adults. Lot's of areas for different groups to tuck away and do whatever they might enjoy - watch movies on the massive wall mounted TV's, play a game, enjoy a fire, show off your cooking skills, or have the kids get out of your hair and play some games upstairs . All of this can go on at the same time.
Massive (~400 sq ft!) covered patio is great for people watching and enjoying snow storms in the hot-tub. Overall house is 2700 sq ft. including Laundry in cellar, not including cellar is 2500 sq ft- feel free to tune your ski's down there as well at the large ski tuning bench.
Whole house - parking spaces on property for 4 vehicles (including garage). PLEASE PARK IN DRIVEWAY OR IN GARAGE - TOWN OF MINTURN PREFERS TO KEEP STREET PARKING FREE FOR SHORT TERM VISITORS.

People put their kayaks into the Eagle River in the easement behind our house. You can easily fish there - Colorado's largest guide service sets up here in Minturn for a good reason (shhhh!)

Other things to note
Pet Friendly - we have 2 dogs who love the space. Front yard is fenced BUT during the winter, snow drifts make it possible for animals to easily escape.
