Property Description

When people dream of a “Mountain Home,” they generally envision an Alpine-styled residence far up amidst rarified air and blue skies with a dramatic view of mountains in virtually every direction. That is exactly what awaits you at prestigious Windcliff Estates’
“Breiding Upper.” Tim Breiding’s top-level duplex condo sits high up on the slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain. Its two bedrooms and two bathrooms offer luxury accommodation for you and for two of your favorite family members or friends. A handsomely-routed, leaded-glass front door awaits your arrival in the foyer. The door opens to living space dominated by its western wall of windows focused on a vista of unparalleled splendor.

The Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains tower before you in Rocky Mountain National Park. Piercingly-bright blue skies dappled with a few puffy clouds rest atop the Continental Divide. Long’s Peak reaches to 14,259 feet within your field of view. A sprawling deck graces the entire western façade of “Breiding Upper” and is set with fine wicker furniture for lounging and basking, mountain viewing, or casual dining. Great trees rise up beside you. And, when visiting birds begin to sing, you are close enough at hand to truly see who is in the choir. Just below you on the slopes of the mountainside anchoring “Breiding Upper” is the mighty plug of granite known today as “Buser Park.” This extraordinary promontory is collectively owned and maintained by the residents of Windcliff Estates. You are welcome to venture out to the precipice where the Arapaho once stood to survey the Eden-like valleys below. And, just over a century ago, our forebears stood on the brink at Buser Park to dream of preserving all that their eyes could encompass as a National Park. Their success undoubtedly underscores your desire to visit this magnificent domain.

The living room at “Breiding Upper” features a soaring, beamed ceiling, an enormous wood-burning fireplace and hearth, comfortable furnishings, Blu-Ray TV, a host of games, stocked library shelves, and a window ledge where you can curl up to read or relax. Casual seating that is perfect for reading or an intimate conversation faces the western windows and all of the wonders beyond. A handsome bison reflective of the artist’s brush of Robert Bateman stares unblinking from his portrait on the wall. A formal dining area with an inlaid table and sideboard is ready to be set with mountain motif Temper-Ware china and handsome stem ware. A formal wet bar incorporates a spirit cabinet employing the honor system. Enjoy a vintage bottle of Columbia Crest Sauvignon Blanc or a hearty Italian Red. Just replace them with equal bottles of your choosing before you depart. The kitchen at “Breiding Upper” features glass-top cooking and has anticipated your every culinary need when it comes time to prepare your freshly-caught fish or a feast from scratch. The master bedroom is richly furnished and offers direct access to the western deck. The ensuite bathroom provides every standard amenity plus a bidet. The guest bedroom provides the same magnificent mountain views upon waking and a deck to sample the freshest air imaginable. But, without question, the most intriguing space at “Breiding Upper” is the sprawling family room tucked up against the slope of Ram’s Horn Mountain at its back. A soaring glass ceiling, supported by the great moss-rock fireplace, makes the room feel like a part of the landscape. Rocks and trees clamber upwards to tower over you. Wildlife flits among the giant Ponderosa roots and undergrowth. A fine wicker lounging suite invites long stints in front of the fire. A large-screen TV, a gaming table, and a free-standing rod hockey game await your pleasure. Just outside a gas grill is at the ready and a hot tub communes quietly with nature in reverent anticipation of your arrival. It’s so easy to once again fall in love with life and with one another at “Breiding Upper.” You can feel it in the words left behind by visitors to this Alpine paradise:
• “We came for peace and quiet and time for reflection --- and found them all!”
• “We sat in front of the windows with our morning coffee in awe of God’s handiwork.”
• “We walked in the meadow with a herd of elk, and met a coyote on the road upon our return. But, the most exciting encounter was with ‘Brownie,’ the big brown bear that appeared at dusk last evening and meandered up to our front door.”
• “We came here with our children to enjoy Rocky Mountain National Park. But, staying here in your home helped us to feel truly a part of the surrounding wilderness.”
• “We never imagined how spectacular the views would be!”
• “I think John Denver said it best: ‘Rocky Mountain High!’”
• “Watching the sunrise is amazing.”
• “The view is so inspiring that we can gaze at it for hours.”
• “How cool to see so many animals just free and wild.”
• “I have never seen so many stars!”
• “Most of our time here was spent sitting on the deck or in front of the windows just staring out.”
• “‘Bob’ the bobcat came by four times this visit.”
• “A cup of steaming coffee tastes like heaven when we sit on the deck watching the mountains come alive.”
• “My wife spent hours on the web looking for the ‘perfect place.’ She found it --- right here!”

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 “Breiding Upper” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Breiding Upper” 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!

Amazing view, great living spaces

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 3 nights on 3/6/2016

We enjoyed every aspect of this great rental! We enjoyed the two living spaces and two fireplaces as well as the good size outdoor hot tub. It was great for two couples for a trip and very convent location to Estes Park and Rocky Moutain National Park but still feels secluded and cozy. Definitely recommend this rental!

Awesome View

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 3 nights on 8/31/2015

The Breiding Upper in Windcliff had the most awesome view of all the mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and looking at the mountains, you almost feel as though you can reach out and touch them. At night we could hear the coyotes howling down in the valley, it was awesome. We had hummingbirds withing 15 minutes of me putting out the feeder. The home was awesome, nicely arranged and had very nice amenities, we enjoyed ourselves so very much. We will look at booking this home again on our next visit to Estes Park. The personnel at Windcliff were so nice and easy to work with and our trip was flawless. This is the second time we have stayed at Windcliff and recommend to all our friends.

Great location, great view

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 6 nights on 8/3/2015

My wife and I visited Estes Park for our Honeymoon, August 2015. We absolutely loved staying in Breiding Upper. The house was very well kept. The hot tub was great, the view of the mountains was great (there was still snow on them!). The kitchen came very well stocked with various items we forgot, and the fireplace even came with wood, fire starters, and lighters. One thing it would have been nice to know before we got there is that Breiding Upper is actually the upstairs of a house, and there's a whole other rental property that occupies the basement of the same house. We had neighbors downstairs who never bothered us with noise, but it still would have been nice to know there was going to be someone else in the same house (there are separate entrances).

AWESOME!!

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 5 nights on 7/11/2015

My family and I absolutely loved this property! Also...whoever submitted the review that someone had previously smoked in the home doesn't know what they're talking about! We will definitely be back! Thanks Windcliff!

heidel0reh stayed 5 nights on 8/23/2008

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit unserem Ferienhaus´in Fréland. Das Haus war sehr sauber und gut eingerichtet. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Die Vermieter haben uns begrüßt und alles gezeigt. Auf Nachfrage nach einem zweiten Bezug für eine weitere Bettdecke wurde dieser sofort gebracht.Der Besitzer spricht einigermaßen deutsch, so dass auch die Verständigung in Deutsch und Französisch sehr gut war. Ein besonderes Angebot war, dass der Vermieter für uns sehr gut gekocht hat, das Essen heiß anlieferte und uns sehr gut geschmeckt hat. Die Wohnung ist ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für den Besuch der "Elsässer Dörfer" und für Wanderungen.
