Property Description

Welcome to “Mapes!” A woodpecker door knocker tends the front door. A carved wooden bear stands tall offering “bear hugs” for a nickel. This is going to be a fun and friendly place! In the midst of the remarkable collection of mountain homes comprising prestigious Windcliff Estates, the Mapes family has created a masterpiece. The residence is perfectly situated to enjoy a commanding view of the rocky fortresses comprising the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is exhilaratingly modern and fresh. Enter from the welcoming and embracing foyer to a living area designed as a meeting place for you and the mountains. A peaked wall of western windows frames forests and mountains like gallery masterpieces. Rich lodge-style leather seating huddles near the remotely-controlled gas fireplace awaiting your pleasure. A wall of reclaimed wood and southwestern artifacts lend unique character to your surroundings.

The chef’s kitchen at “Mapes” is a dream come true. It features space --- and more space! What seems like an acre of dark granite is the perfect playing field for culinary experimentation. Stacked ovens, an induction range, a microwave drawer, and two dishwashers (you were planning a banquet, weren’t you?) are ready to elevate your mountain vacation meals to feasts. Try the “Asparagus Soup with Poached Eggs and Crispy Proscuito” in Kate McMillan’s cook book in the cupboard --- or dine on Yotam Ottolenghi’s “Lamb Rib Chops with Walnut, Fig, and Goat Cheese Salad.” For dessert select an offering from Susan Purdy’s “Pie in the Sky” cookbook. Her recipes are classics when it comes to mastering the art of baking at high altitude. The Mapes have provided every tool and utensil that you could possibly need. Your imagination is the only missing ingredient. Set the view-laden dining room table with “Moose Country” china by Tienshang, classic stem ware, and conversation of your own making. Two handsome decks off the living and dining areas offer alternative locales for dining or just refreshing. A beautiful laundry room you will want to take home with you is situated near the kitchen.

The Mapes residence incorporates five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master suite is privately situated one flight up with pillow positions aimed directly at the Continental Divide. A gas fireplace separates the sleeping chamber from the luxurious air-jet soaking tub with its mountain view. An immense, glass-enclosed shower is close at hand. Tiles, wood, metal, and distinctive lighting harmonize in tune with the panoramic vistas forever at hand. An ensuite queen bedroom replete with a wall-mounted TV and mirrored furnishings and a king suite constitute the main-level sleeping accommodations. Downstairs is a home theater and game room flanked by two more ensuite bedrooms --- one a bunkhouse room with three twins that is guaranteed to be a kids’ delight! Just outside on a sprawling patio stands a hot tub ready to soothe the aches of a long hike or a horseback trek in the National Park. The tub is perfectly positioned to enjoy one of the greatest views on earth.

Those who have been here before you would like you to know how much they enjoyed the experience:
• “This home is amazing with its great views. It was awesome to hear the elk bellowing at night.”

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

Property Reviews

Beautiful home with wonderful views

A FlipKey verified reviewer stayed 5 nights on 6/12/2016

We spent five nights with our sons and families in June and had a wonderful time. The home is spectacular with a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains. The kitchen is spacious and very well stocked with anything you could ever need. The home is conveniently located near the RMNP. We enjoyed watching wildlife every day from the deck. The staff at Windcliff was extremely helpful. They went above and beyond when our wifi went out during our stay. It was a sad day when we had to leave. Looking forward to staying again.

Perfect vacation

amymK5779MP stayed 5 nights on 5/22/2016

Family vacation for a week in this beautiful, elegant home. Everyone had their own room and bathroom. Home is very spacious and even more beautiful than pictures depicted. Very clean. Bedding was so comfortable and all windows had excellent views of the mountains. Gourmet kitchen had everything one could ask for. Wi fi access and spacious hot tub. We all thoroughly enjoyed this home and beautiful mountain views. We will be returning! Had a wonderful vacation!

Quiet setting with great views!

Phil stayed 6 nights on 7/28/2012

Our family of 5 adults had a great vacation in the Estes Park area. This home is minutes from town and Rocky Mountain National Park. It was clean and had enough kitchen equipment for our group. We enjoyed the spectacular views and watching elk and coyote roaming the hills in the evening. The staff was very kind and helpful! The only negatives about this home was the single garage, lack of deck furniture, and the need for updating. We would stay here again! Perfect location!

Mike Sweeney stayed 7 nights on 7/14/2012

We liked best the great views, the kitchen, and the comfort of the house. The house is soon to be renovated and did have issues, e.g., absence of some window screens, handles to open many windows were not functional, a shower head that distributed little water, one of the windows fell out during a high wind, the handle on the commode in the main floor fell off with each flushing, two of the commodes had difficulty flusing at times, there were pictures stacked in the hallway upon arrival. The staff was very punctual in alleviating these problems upon notice from us. We have stayed at Windcliff a number of times and will do so in the future.

Manager Response

We apologize for the problems with the house and did our best to rectify them promptly once notified. This property was recently sold and the new owners plan an extensive renovation. In the process of the changeover to the new owners some pictures were removed and we did not get them replaced before the next guest's arrival. We hope you give us another try!
