Being a small town in a heavy resorted area like Eagle county could mean living in the shadows of its neighbors, but Minturn has carved out its own distinct identity. The town is one of the oldest in the area, being incorporated in 1904. It was originally a railroad town that ended up attracting passersby from all over the nation — and world — to eventually live here. To this day, the town reflects the unique and eclectic feel that comes from bringing together people from diverse locations.
Something to keep in mind is that there are more permanent residents per square mile than any other part of the county. While other areas more than double their population in the summer months, Minturn’s stability gives it a real small-town feel. But more than that, the homes are often quite colorful (literally) and they take pride in some of the quirky architecture you’ll see driving down their streets. As Minturn has a very strong community feel, most of the dining and entertainment options are family-oriented. The Minturn Saloon is the longest-running restaurant in the entire Vail Valley, being in business since 1901 and earning nationwide praise, even from publications such as the NY Times. For those looking to enjoy all of the natural beauty of the area without having to be close to the resort, Minturn is the place for you!

“There is a difference in the Broker you choose. Throughout the sales process David counseled us. We give him the highest marks in every category. He was a joy to work with and we highly recommend his services.”
— Bob and Elain Brotman
“David helped us with the purchase of our property over ten years ago and has stayed in touch since then. When we decided to sell he leaped in and handled the process extremely well and got us a price we were quite happy with. His team made the whole process simple and easy.”
“I really don’t like dealing with realtors. Their incentives aren’t aligned with the buyer and seller, and they often don’t have a good business sense. Jeff is one of the exceptions. Jeff is hard-working, honest and has many good insights. Additionally, he is willing to roll up his sleeves and do things that other realtors might not do (like get a remote control programmed so that the new buyer is happy, or help clean up the house to make sure it shows well). He helped us buy and sell 2 expensive properties; I’d use him again in a heartbeat.”
