The Minturn Inn in Minturn, CO, is a wonderful surprise of an escape from the ski traffic and chaos in the Vail area. We stayed at this B&B for a one-night get-away from our busy lives, and were so happy with the cozy, romantic room (especially with the fireplace and the two-person jacuzzi tub); the warm hospitality; and the tasty blueberry pancakes in the morning. Minturn itself is a sweet little town with a colorful saloon (and incredible high-end Mexican food). We'll definitely be back.
I planned a little weekend getaway for my fiance and I at the Minturn Inn this past weekend. Earin, the manager/innkeeper, was great when I had to change our plans slightly and kept in contact with us to ensure that we arrived safely as we drove through very unfavorable weather. Upon arrival Earin let us know that she had complimentary upgraded us to a room with a fireplace and awesome river rock jetted bath tub (which we used and LOVED!). We loved the town of Minturn and seemed to be the only out-of-towners there that weekend, which was great. I had looked at reviews prior to arrival and knew that the breakfast wouldn't be anything too crazy, although simple it was delicious! Having worked for an Inn for several years I tend to be very critical of places that I stay and I have to say that the Minturn Inn certainly exceeded my expectations. The upgrade was a very happy surprise and made our weekend just that much more special. Earin was friendly and helpful which always make any stay more enjoyable. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a small mountain town to escape to! Allison B.
We had a great weekend! We were hoping to see snow but the Artic Snow came too late. We hung out in the living room and drank wine. It was an great time! There is also a liquor store close so you can just have a quaint weekend with wine.
I never write reviews. Spur of the moment trip on the bike. Day od check in received call confirming time of check in was very polite said could check in anytime. The room was great had its own bathroom. Towels we thick you know what I am talking about :) Food the next morning was prepared fresh as we sat at this beautiful huge wooden table. Innkeeper was so gracious she is a peach. Anyway if you are up there you cant go wrong
My husband and I stayed in the Missouri Lakes room for our anniversary. We loved hearing the river outside our window and felt like we had our own personal spa in the bathroom! We treasured our time in this lovely setting.
The Minturn Inn is a cozy little place in the little town of, well, Minturn. If you like getaways which are a bit off the beaten path, then this place might be a good fit. The room rate is quite reasonable for the Vail area, rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was excellent. My only critique has more to do with myself than conditions. I like fresh air at night so almost always sleep with my window open, even in the winter. I am also unused to road noise. The Inn is located on a small highway. My room faced the main road. Thus, with my window open, road noise was rather loud and I needed to use ear plugs to sleep. Even so I enjoyed my stay and hope to return there in the future.
We were looking for a comfortable night's stay on the road to Aspen. We found that along the river's edge at the Minturn Inn. The room and common areas were lovely and full of rustic charm. The deck overlooking the rushing river was very relaxing. The bed comfortable and the breakfast delicious. What more could a weary traveler ask for?
We realize it is a "good" value for the area. I guess we did not know what to expect as far as the rooms. We were told that the room we reserved, one of the "smaller" rooms was not available...we were giving a "larger" room, in quotes. It was by the stairs on the main level. I am not sure what the other room would have been like but we heard everyone come down and get their coffee and breakfast. As some other comments that have been made, breakfast was "average".
It has a great location in Minturn. It's cute and quaint and clean and quiet, but it's missing the charm that distinguishes a B&B from a regular hotel. I prefer the intimacy of being a guest in someone's retirement dream rather than a client in a corporate establishment. I like the kind of B&B where the owners are glad to have you, greet you, and join you for breakfast, the recipes are hand crafted or passed down through the generations, or the ingredients are chosen from right outside the door, and everybody's glad to sit around and swap stories over coffee afterwards. The Minturn Inn is just a staffed place, and seemed more of a money bank than a dream to me, which is so much less endearing. Breakfast was good, but it was just pancakes and bacon. The title sums it up: Clean and quiet, but not charming.
By chance, I chose this particular B&B because it was relatively close to home (Denver) for a quick getaway weekend. Perfect choice! Our room had a private balcony overlooking the Eagle River and we could walk to the local restaurants and tour this quaint town along the way. Our breakfast was wonderful and the coffee to die for. We are definitely going back for a stay and hike during the fall season to see the beautiful fall colors.
