Escape to one of Estes Park's most prestigious neighborhoods, Windcliff Estates, nestled high up on Rams Horn Mountain and coveted, most of all, for its majestic views of Rocky Mountain National Park! Only three miles from downtown Estes Park, you'll be far above the hustle and bustle, as you drive up the well-maintained road that takes you to High Country Getaway at an elevation of 8,555 ft! There, the panoramic view of the Continental Divide is just stunning. This condo is .3 miles from another Windcliff condo that SkyRun manages — Fantastic Views — if you are looking for a vacation rental for a large group. A High Country Getaway sleeps 8 and Fantastic Views each sleep 6 for a total of 14 guests if you rent both.
High Country Getaway is newly remodeled and you will love the mountain modern finishes and furnishings! This sizable, light-filled condo is on three floors with an entry at a split level just below the top floor. Enter this sky-high sanctuary and find yourself in the spacious "Aspen Den," which features a half-vaulted ceiling, stunning nature photography, golden décor and plenty of natural light. This is the perfect place to hang up coats and kick off boots, but with the comfy futon couch and a high game table, don't be surprised if kids and teenagers gravitate to this casual nook.
From the Aspen Den, go up a half flight of stairs to the top floor where you'll find an amazing open-concept Great Room, dining area and kitchen. Large mountain view-filled windows flank a floor-to-ceiling moss rock fireplace and a soaring cathedral ceiling add to the dream of your vacation home. You'll love the new, comfortable furnishings and the flat-screen tv that commands a corner. Watch the sun rise or set over the Continental Divide from the dining table for 8. The completely new and fully stocked kitchen, open to the Great Room, features a grand mountain fusion of gorgeous hickory cabinets and stainless steel appliances. A cook's delight! Step out onto the private deck from the Great Room and enjoy your morning coffee watching sunlight hit the mountain tops or an evening of brilliant stargazing.
Walk down the stairs to the second floor and you'll first come to the Wolf Bedroom — featuring two twin beds, ample closets and bold wolf décor. Across the hall, you'll find a new full bath with a tub/shower combo. At the end of the hall, you'll step into the master suite Moose Bedroom — featuring a king-sized bed, a flat-screen tv, a walk-in closet, an attached bath with tub/shower combo and, of course, charming moose décor. Both of these bedrooms has a private door to a shared deck for more wildlife and mountain watching!
Downstairs, you'll come to the second master bedroom, the Bear Den — an oversized room with a king-sized bed, an en suite bath/laundry (offers a shower and a full-size washer/dryer), a sofa and a flat-screen tv for a quiet spot to watch movies. Kids will love using the step stool to enter the "secret" cubby where two twin beds are tucked away among a menagerie of stuffed animals. A cozy leather chair and an array of children's books makes this the perfect place for bedtime stories. This is a great room for families who need to keep little ones really close.
