Property Description

“Frost” is one of the pinnacle vacation rental homes at Windcliff Estates, a premier residential community of Estes Park, Colorado mountain homes. Outdoor Living “Frost” is situated on St. Moritz Trail, a name that conjures visions of pristine Alpine vistas. And, that is precisely the aura that is afforded by “Frost” from its stately perch at 9,000 feet of elevation on the slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain. The experience is as rare as the air is rarified. One family returning to “Frost” with great expectations has written, “We enjoyed each switchback up to the house --- and then, the big moment --- opening the front door to drink in the view!” And, the view through the western wall of windows is, indeed, spectacular in the extreme. Spread before you is the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. Snow-capped peaks compete at poking holes in the sky. The high ridge you see stretching across the horizon before you constitutes America’s western Continental Divide. “Frost” is so privately situated that you can almost believe that the vast domain spread before you is your own private National Park. Walk out onto the western deck (one of three at “Frost”) and a song is soon running around in your head: “I’m sitting on top of the world looking down on Creation…..” The deck where you are standing has seating for everyone in your entourage, a table for dining, and a gas-grill at the ready. Towering trees caress the house. One protruding branch in your purview is a perfect perch for Colorado birds of every feather to pause and preen. Step across the St. Moritz Trail that conveyed you up to “Frost” and you are entering the 1,271 square miles of Teddy Roosevelt National Forest. The forest is home to deer, elk, bears, mountain lions, and scores of ground critters. You will soon be on speaking terms with many of them as they graze nonchalantly by to have their pictures taken! Indoor Living The living room at “Frost” is crowned with a high wooden ceiling crafted of “beetle kill” pine. The beetles that ravished trees in parts of America’s Northwest have produced wood of extraordinary character and the ceiling here salvages and displays that hidden beauty. Recessed lighting dramatically enhances the ceiling’s character by night. Clerestory windows high overhead will welcome morning’s first light. Leather seating set amidst bright area rugs focuses on a wood-burning fireplace. TV (Blu-Ray), a music system, books, and games are all at hand. Fine art prints reflect the love of the owners for the world out of doors --- and their artistic good taste! And, speaking of “good taste,” the kitchen at “Frost,” in keeping with the high standards of all Windcliff rentals, is intended for use and is prepped accordingly. The name “Bosch” is readily in evidence. Snazzy southwestern tableware is stacked tall in the cupboards. The dining room table comfortably seats eight. Sit at the head of the table and the Tyndall Glacier nestled between Hallett Peak and Flattop Mountain is directly in your field of view. The spacious master suite at “Frost” features its own balcony and an office. Downstairs you will find yet another King Suite, two more bedrooms, and a small living area. A west-facing deck harbors a hot tub with a spectacular view into the National Park by day and unto the universe at night. We can always learn from those who have traveled a path before us. Signed entries in “Frost’s” Guest Book tell a great story: “‘Frost’ provided everything we could ask for in a vacation home --- comfy beds, well-appointed kitchen, and incredible views.” “What a special place --- hiking in the Rockies, seeing glaciers, hidden lakes, brilliant sunsets, golden Aspen groves, deer, elk, and towering pines.” “The sign on the wall reads, ‘If you are lucky enough to be in Colorado, you are lucky enough!’ Add the words --- ‘with friends’ --- and it is complete.” “I’ve finally discovered ‘true peace’ sitting in this leather arm chair in front of the fire.” “We certainly appreciate the comfy beds and perfect kitchen. We eat most of our meals in --- actually out on the deck.” “If you can’t find God in this place, you’re not trying hard enough.” “‘Frost’ is immaculate, well-stocked, and very comfortable.” “This is a perfect place. Please include us in your will!” Frost on your windshield in the winter can be an annoyance. But, put a little “Frost” in your life with a vacation stay in this wonderful mountain home and you will cherish the experience forever.
Note: Base rate covers only the first two people. Add $25 for each additional person over age 2 per night up to the maximum occupancy for the home.; this rate varies by season date ranges. Season dates are listed at

Great home in the mountains!

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 7 nights on 8/29/2015

Lovely home minutes from downtown Estes Park way up a mountain overlooking the valley. Great amenities, nicely decorated, well-equipped kitchen, fabulous views, comfortable bedding. It took a few times up the mountain to get used to the many switchbacks, but it's well worth the climb!


Comfort with an incredible view

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 3 nights on 8/24/2015

The Frost home sits high on the mountain, providing excellent views from the decks. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the home was well equipped. The deck off the living room was a great place for sipping wine and watching the sun set over the mountains in the evenings. The folks at Windcliff were great to work with, and arrival/departure procedures were friendly and efficient. Would love to stay there again.


Fantastic Frost Get-Away!

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 7 nights on 9/5/2014

We stayed for a full week. This home provided the perfect location, amenities and space to accommodate two couples wanting to get away and hike in the mountains. We could have easily had an additional five guests given the number of bedrooms/beds. The view is fantastic! We ate all meals out on the deck at the table and used the grill. We saw elk and deer and bears! The only caution we would offer is that the steep angle of the driveway is obviously not suitable for sporty, low-riding vehicles with ground effects! We were just fine with our SUV.


Love Estes Park!

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 5 nights on 7/26/2014

Frost was a very nice place to stay. View was spectacular!! Proximity to town and RMNP was perfect. It would have been nice if the floor plan and pictures actually had shown what the cave looked like and also that there was only a single bed in the bunk house.


Great house

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 5 nights on 6/16/2014

Spent 5 nights at this home and loved it. Great view and house is equipped first class! Great kitchen. There were six of us, never felt crowded. Kitchen has new appliances--Bosch, great dishes and cookware. Everything and more you could want in a rental. We ate most of our meals in and enjoyed the house and the view. Close to Rocky Mountain National Park and downtown Estes Park. We have stayed in this house when previous owners also had on rental program. It needed some "renewing". The new owners did just that!
