The NeighborhoodRed Cliff is a town of less than 300 residents, most of whom work in the Vail Valley. It was the first incorporated town in Eagle County in 1879 & has a rich history as the first county seat & hub of Eagle County life into the 1970's. It is a humble & quaint town, consisting of mostly small, older homes, situated in the center of an incredible mountain scene & only 20 minutes to Vail.
We are located next door to a small convenience & liquor store & across the street from a bar that serves lunch & dinner. The nearest gas station is in Minturn, 9 miles north, & there are several dining options there for all meals. Vail is just 16 miles north, a 20 minute drive, & it offers endless shopping, dining, & a myriad of services. Leadville is 18 miles south.
Getting AroundRed Cliff bus service is quite limited, running once per day to & from Vail. *Guests should plan to bring their own vehicle. Roads are snowy in winter, so adequate snow tires are required, & front wheel drive is preferable. Other Things to Note1. We have a 4 night minimum stay between (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).
