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.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Minturn Inn. Room was excellent and the food was perfect. Very cordial management and lots of good suggestions for dining and hiking as well as the farmers market. Great time!
