Property Description

Welcome to Pollak --- a duplex mountain vacation home strategically situated in prestigious Windcliff Estates to maximize your enjoyment of the mountain vistas spread before it. Virtually the entire western façade of Pollak is comprised of windows. And, spread before you upon entering the residence is the majestic Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Tyndall glacier lies snuggled between the jagged elevations of Hallett Peak and the formidable mass of Flattop Mountain. The crest of the mountains poking at the sky is the western Continental Divide of the North American continent. Try to appreciate that you are a custodian of all that you see, because these mountains are cradled within the embrace of one of our favorite, and collectively-held, National Parks!

Pollak is singularly spacious and airy. Two wonderfully-inviting, split-level living areas compete for your attention and patronage. The lower living level boasts a wood-burning fireplace and a sprawling hearth. An artful array of copper utensils adds charming accents. Ample comfortable seating for everyone in residence is arranged to take in the view or absorb the warmth of a crackling fire. A splendid weaving by Native American hands adorns the south wall. Treasured Indian artifacts speak to us of the Arapaho and the Ute hunting bands whose feet left gentle tracks upon this landscape long before our arrival. There is additional seating over in the library corner where a collection of music awaits your enjoyment. You may handily connect to WiFi in the west-facing office. And, when you are ready for a breath of the freshest air imaginable, step directly outside to a grassy plateau where hummingbirds and squirrels are at home on their own turf. Keep one eye open for the bear that meanders by from time to time.

The upper level of Pollak’s split-level living space has a wet bar handy to both of the living levels and the dining room. There is yet another masterpiece from a native loom to admire. Cozy up for a good read, some spirited conversation, or just a quiet moment of communion with the mountains. A Meade digital computer-controlled telescope stands poised atop its tri-pod. You may scour the mountains by day and the heavens by night. It is fair to say that you will never see more stars than you can find in the Colorado sky on a clear night. And, at Pollak’s elevation of nearly 9,000 feet, you are always a little closer to the stars than usual.

You likely stepped out onto the west deck when first you arrived. Here the mountains seem close enough to touch. Dine out here when the mood suits ensconced in front row seats to view parading elk and deer or the majesty of a Rocky Mountain sunset. The kitchen at Pollak enjoys the same majestic view to the west as every other room in the residence. An onlookers’ bar frames the kitchen and sports the same attractive granite as all of the creative surfaces in the kitchen. A glass-top range and every essential utensil and tool are at hand whether you wish to brown a bagel or launch a banquet. Ann and Victor’s collection of fine pottery creates a special aura. Set the dining room table with beautiful Stagebrush stoneware to compliment your heartiest creations.

The master bedroom features a king-sized bed with a million dollar view to mountain peaks tinted pink by the rising sun. A door leads directly to the natural world waiting outside. The ensuite bath offers all of the special Windcliff touches and amenities. The guest bedroom has western views to the summits, private deck access, and a full bath to call its own.

Visitors to Pollak have left heartfelt inscriptions in the residence’s guest book:
• “This is our fourth visit here, and each visit makes us love it more!”
• “So beautiful, so peaceful, so quiet --- PARADISE!”
• “It is nice to know that there is still a place like this in the world.”
• “We thoroughly appreciated the magnificent view of God’s creation and the lovely accommodations done in such good taste.”
• “…..a time of renewal with friends, with the beauty of nature, and with myself.”
• “Oh, my G_d! We are from Holland where we live below sea level. This is surely Heaven!”
• “I was brought to tears by the beauty of your home and its environs.”
• “The Rocky Mountains are breathtaking, and the views from these windows immerse one in their grandeur.”
• “…..the sunsets, the moon over the mountains, the sparkly stars…..Oh, my God!”
• “Nestled in these rocky mounts there lies a heaven by all accounts…….”

Although Estes Park [Rocky Mountain National Park’s gateway community] is only 15 minutes distant by car, you will always feel securely tucked away at “Pollak” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Pollak” residence is a private residential community comprising 260 acres on the sunny western slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain. It is served by a single entrance to private roads with no through streets or heavy traffic. It is truly a world apart!

Windcliff lover

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 5 nights on 7/29/2014

I have stayed in several windcliff homes and am in love with the whole development! My family enjoyed our stay at pollack however surprised that it was a upper and lower level. I am used to staying in duplex homes that are side by side upper and lower. It is a no-win situation because you're either walking on somebody or they are walking on you. We totally loved the layout of the home. Two living rooms were fantastic for a large family. The bedrooms were off at a distance so it was quiet during bedtime for our children. The home was extremely comfortable, however a new home was built in front of this home and you Look at the roof. We were downstairs so it probably be better from the upstairs. The home was updated and the kitchen and bathroom are very nice. some of the furniture is not needed in the home. But overall Home was decorated nice. We felt very much at home. Love windcliff!


So relaxed!

stayed 2 nights on 5/2/2014

The service, home, and amenities were excellent. It was exactly what we needed for a relaxing getaway.


The Pollak house is wonderful.

texastraveller stayed 3 nights on 8/31/2012

With amazing mountain views from every room in this house high on a mountain looking down toward the Ymca camp, this property is wonderfully comfortable and attractive. The staff at Windcliff get our compliments, too.


Had a wonderful time

A Larry F stayed 7 nights on 7/24/2012

We were skeptical about none of the homes having air-conditioning (coming from MO where it was over 100 degrees everyday) but were more than happy with the cool temperatures that awaited us. In fact the nighttime temps were even close to "cold". The home was spacious with all the space we could use. The view from the home was wonderful. Just loved watching out across the valley for wild-game with the binoculars we brought. The telescope that was in the home was cool looking, but did not work unfortunately; The only real downside of the unit was that we were on the lower level, thus we could always here what the family above was doingl; walking, running, etc (and wouldn't you know it, they had a very small child that made quite a bit of noise). But overall my family and I agree that we will return and rent from Windcliff Properties again. We spent a little time on hikes looking around at other homes and decided on some we will request when we book again in January.


Great place

Jj stayed 5 nights on 7/31/2012

My stay was great. The property is incredible and makes it perfectly acceptable to spend a day at the house since its in the middle of the mountains! The drive up the mountain is stressful at night but that's a small price to pay. Wished there was a Hottub like the others. For familes that are ok with being away from the madness and touristy downtown, its great. I would definitely go back and stay again.
