Awestruck is amazing !! A view that will challenge any in the country. We travel extensively and Awestruck will rival anything, anywhere as a top notch place to stay. This home is not furnished with low grade "typical rental cabin" type furniture and appliances. This is truly a mountain dream home. David and Beth (Awestruck owners) went against the norm and have gone all out to make this home a class act. Top quality furniture, decor, and appliances throughout. David is also an extremely talented photographer which all the pictures in Awestruck were taken by him which I thought was cool. I actually asked him if he was a professional by trade, nope, just a hobby. David called the first night to greet us and welcome us to Awestruck. He even called a second time during the stay to let us know he was informed a bear was active and had been seen in the immediate area of Awestruck. Very thoughtful and we appreciated it. Windcliff made us aware of bear activity as well. David and Beth are also avid hikers and they provide extensive information in a binder about hiking and activities in the area. Check out the information provided if you enjoy hiking as it is very helpful and informative.
My Family enjoyed every minute at Awestruck. I would highly recommend some downtime simply to enjoy the home and it's surroundings. Wildlife is everywhere near and around Awestruck. David and Beth have created a gem with Awestruck and it's fantastic people have the opportunity to experience it. They should probably publish a book about how to create the ultimate vacation home and experience. I could ramble on and on and on so in a nutshell, TOP QUALITY HOME, TOP QUALITY MANAGEMENT IN WINDCLIFF, and TOP QUALITY OWNERS !!! Thanks for the memories!!!!
On Top of the World
Spent 9 nights in mid May at what is truly an awesome property in every respect. The attention to detail and ambiance left us truly "Awestruck". Everything one could want was made available for our use. It is really hard to believe that this is actually a rental home as everything was first class right down to the bed linens, towels and every item of decoration and furnishing. Having the owner actually call and welcome us to the home was a very professional and appreciated touch and then to have him call back the next day with information regarding Moose sightings was so appreciated. (We got to see the Moose). During our stay we experienced a Spring snowstorm of over 3 feet at the house and the house and hot tub could not have been more comfortable. (I might add the management team kept the roads and driveway plowed so we were not trapped at any time). The views from the "great room" with so much snow was essentially indescribable as you just had to be there. Sort of like the Grand Canyon where pictures are nice but you really have to be there. This comes from a native Coloradoan who has seen lots of mountain scenes, but who from some reason left Colorado years ago and migrated to Virginia. It was good to be back home!! I think that one would be hard pressed to find a rental property in any resort area of this caliber at the rental price. Trying to think how to get another period at this "awesome" house as it is booked solid.

Outstanding Home... Wedding Weekend!!
In choosing awestruck, our choice could not have been better to spend four nights over our son's wedding weekend in Estes! We flew in from the east coast to a truly remarkable and complete home!! It felt like our home!!! Every amenity was there, and the serenity and views were just terrific!! We've rented homes in the states, islands, and Mexico... this ranked with the best!!
My husband and I have stayed in awestruck on three different trips to Estes Park. Yet again, we couldn't be happier with the experience. The house is amazingly comfortable and welcoming. The Bates family's hospitality is exceptional. Is it too soon to book our stay for next year?
Awestruck = incredible!!
My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon at awestruck and I can't tell you how incredible it was. Everything was perfect! I think we were most happy with all that awestruck has: the flat screen tv's, blue ray, xbox, all your essential cooking needs, very up- to-date appliances, a huge grill, a hot tube jacuzzi, fire place, garage, washer and dryer, two king size beds, a huge master bathroom, and amazing views!! Also your only like 10-15 mins from downtown Estes Park and Rocky Mt. National Park. Oh and if you are nervous bout how to operate anything in the house (like I was with the fire place) the owners have left a very detailed instruction book! Super helpful! The owner even called the house while we there just to check in. Such nice guy! My wife and I were extremely sad to leave but we know for sure that we will be back!
If you're looking for a luxurious vacation home near Rocky Mountain National Park for a good price, Awestruck is the place!
Breath Taking View
The view was beautiful over looking the snow cap mountains (no trees blocking the view of windows or house). The pictures do not do the house any justice. This was my second time renting from Windcliff Properties. Michelle LeClerc made it very simple and answered all my question. I had no issues what so ever with awestruck house or Windcliff Properties. This house was fully stocked and has up to date Tv's in every room (1 Xbox and lots of board games for the kiddos - basic sat cable - house phone (cell phone signal very very sketchy) WiFi for those who need it, washer & dryer, rustic cabin interior (loved it!), very roomy , stocked kitchen for cooking no pots, glasses, pans or silverware needed (just bring the food from local town grocery store Safeway close by). Very roomy deck with large table to sit out and enjoy the view as well nice size BBQ Pit. This house sleeps 8-10 if you are willing to decide who loses privacy or who gets what size bed. One room sleeps 2 very comfortably and a large bathroom w/jacuzzi tub (a plus). One room sleeps 4 with a California king size (I think ? It was pretty big bed) and a large day bed in the same room (queen I think). There are two twin beds in another room which sleeps 2. Also one fold out couch (full size or queen) with no privacy (kinda blocked from downstairs view) upstairs above day room area sleeps 2 comfortably (good for kiddos). It was perfect for me with several teenage boys, they could care less to sleep in the rooms because the couches were big and comfortably too. There were 8 of us total. I can talk all day about how beautiful the house and view was every morning while I enjoyed a cup of coffee outside watching the sun rise. You have to rent it to see it for yourself. I highly recommend this house. This house was pretty up there on the mountain; GPS put it at 8,420...Which I loved!...Thanks Windcliff Properties, we will be back very soon !!

The Kind of Place You Try To Keep a Secret
The beautiful condition of the home is only matched by the breathtaking and spectacular surroundings. It is obviously very well maintained by a professional staff that keeps the home spotless. We are sticklers for "clean" and this home gets the award. I don't think we have stayed in a cleaner and more well decorated hotel, rental, or whatever.
The décor is very inviting and clearly the owners spared no expense to make it that way. So many nice touches that could have been left out, but weren't. From the selection of white and red wines (that you can replace at your convenience), to the heated floors in the master bathroom - it makes this place a destination in its own right. In fact, if you visit Estes park, give yourself an extra day just to enjoy the peaceful amenities that the house itself has to offer.
This is not a criticism at all, but if you go in the winter time make sure you follow the requirement of the staff and rent an all-wheel drive vehicle. The switchback roads that ascend about 1,000 feet up the side of the mountain could be a bit challenging in a front wheel drive car. Fortunately we had had one and it made a big difference. For us, just another nice spice to a memorable adventure.
I could go on, but only so much time. Thanks again David and Beth (and the staff at Windcliff) for such a nice treat on our 12th wedding anniversary. We hope it will be available again! Read more

Thank you for your lovely review! We appreciate your comments about the roads in winter. Although our property owners' association keeps our common roads plowed and our rental company takes care of the driveways, winter in the mountains can be challenging and the precaution of all-wheel or 4-wheel drive is strongly recommended.
We hope you return soon to Windcliff and Awestruck!
Amazing and so Peaceful!
We were unable to afford the summer rates and due to work we could only travel in the economy season, in the dead of the winter, yet it has been the best trip to Estes I've had yet!!! We left at home 3 beautiful children to enjoy our honeymoon in the Rockies and we will never regret our decision. Strangely enough staying here has actually saved us money and in comparison to other lodging in the area it is well worth the price! They had absolutely everything you could ever need, olive oil and salt and pepper, a grill, indoor and outdoor dinning ware, everything you could imagine to prepare a fine meal, movies, video games for the kids, games, the list goes on and on. You could come here with your clothes and some tide packs for laundry and be set for your stay! It can be 50.00 dollars a bag on your flight now. We shopped at the Safeway and our food was so delicious and fresh, and yes a little more than average, however, you must take into account overhead for the property. The view from the grocery parking lot was gorgeous. We hiked for the very first time in the winter, a trip to the Warming Hut in town and a purchase of some 20.00 dollar traction chains for our boots and some rented snowshoes and poles were a big help! The owner was very, very accommodating and the home was so comfortable. I loved all of the cozy chairs with beautiful views and great reading light. There is cable for the hubbies who just can't miss that game but with so much to see I doubt they'll be glued to the tube too long. The hot tub was just the right temperature and so beautifully clean and warm, with an amazing view! Oh how I will long for a soak in such serenity when I leave :) Some tips for others in the winter is Estes Parks downtown tourist area closes early, '5pm' also make alternate plans outside the park, just in case you get a little blizzard while your here, although there is enough to do right here in the home to keep you happy..

Thank you so much for the great review! Estes Park in the winter is a magical place and we are happy that you chose to spend your honeymoon with us. We agree that our winter rates are a great value and they extend well into spring.
We hope you return soon with your family!
Waking up every morning to the beautiful mountains was breathtaking. The cabin was everything and more than we expected. It was so quiet and the animals were beautiful, one morning we had twelve beautiful Doe at our cabin. Then every evening and morning they came. I would refer everyone to stay here it was awesome!!
Nothing short of perfection!
My family and I had the most amazing tranquil stay at this gorgeous dreamy home! It felt like home from the moment we stepped foot in the door. We will never stay anywhere else is Estes Park again! Thank you so much for everything and helping us have a very memorable getaway!!!

The Perfect Cabin in the Mountains
My wife and I rented this cabin for a winter weekend in December. It was very comfortable and we felt right at home. The living area was large with huge windows that gave stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. The place was decorated like something out of a magazine. Nothing bad to say at all!
A perfect start to a new family tradition
We had a wonderful stay at awestruck for our Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The home was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need for a fun weekend and also cooking an expansive meal. It was a perfect location, just close enough, but also far enough away from town to truly feel like we got away from it all. We also enjoyed taking nice walks up the mountain with incredible views of the mountains the whole way. Thank you so much for sharing your home with our family as we truly had a remarkable time and didn't want to leave!!!
All we could ask for and then some!
Awestruck is a wonderful vacation home! All of the reviews and descriptions were spot on. The spectacular view, privacy, close proximity to Rmnp, great hot tub(from which we heard bugling elk and howling coyotes!) huge televisions, great kitchen... I could go on and on. The owners are great and very attentive. They have gone above and beyond to make sure you have everything you could possibly want or need. Love this place. We have already booked a second, even longer stay and are counting the days until we return!
Top notch gorgeous rental in paradise!
We spent 4 nights at awestruck and the property was a perfect vacation for
Our family! The owner has gone above and beyond to provide you with a gorgeous view from every room, heated bathroom floors, a large hot tub and a sunken tub in one of the two master bedrooms( to name a few of our favorite amenities )We never wanted to leave this dream house!

Thanks so much for this great review! We are happy to have our guests back at Windcliff after the flood and to be able to report that Windcliff and Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are open for business and welcoming visitors. We are all enjoying the crisp autumn weather, the great snow-capped views and the elk and deer grazing in our little mountain paradise. We hope you come back soon to enjoy everything our mountains have to offer.

Fantastic getaway at awestruck!
We had a fantastic getaway at awestruck! It is a beautiful house in a magnificent setting. David and Beth provided all of the amenities, and then some, to make our stay luxurious and comfortable but warm and cozy at the same time. Our spirits weren't dampened by the rain either. David even called to ask whether we needed any recommendations for indoor activities when he saw we were getting rain. It meant a lot that he was so attentive. Our stay ended at the beginning of the torrential rains and devastating flooding. Awestruck was the perfect haven, safe and dry, even when the town below was starting to experience the flooding. And the Windcliff staff was the best! The day we lost power, George stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed - extra firewood, flashlights, water, food. It was an anxious time for all but the neighbors and folks in town were all very helpful and pulled together when it was needed the most. We will definitely be back. We'll never get enough of Rmnp and awestruck is the perfect place to enjoy the wonder and beauty of Colorado. Read more

Thanks so much for your great review! We appreciate you hanging in there with us during the flood. We are very happy to report that Windcliff and Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are back in business and we are safe and dry and open for business. There is still some awesome autumn weather to enjoy and the fresh snow on the high country peaks is beautiful. We hope to see you back again soon!
Everything was perfect for our family. From the moment we stepped foot in the rental house we felt very comfortable. Thank you very much for the superb customer service, it meant a lot to us. We'll definitely be back for our future family vacations and we'll recommend awestruck to all our family and friends.
Very nice home. A fully stocked kitchen with new appliances.
Good location close to Rmnp entrance and close to town. New gas grill nice back deck overlooking mountains. If we come back we will try to stay here again, great views nice furnishings, Directv when you can't hike another step! New hot tub.
If I could change anything I would ...1. Add a ceiling fan in master BR, 2. Add undercounter lighting in Kitchen...3. replace fiberglass showerpan with marble or tile in MBR. Book this property, you'll be glad you did!!
We stayed here July 6-13 and had a wonderful time. The home was all that was advertised and we're talking about when to make our return trip.
It is truly an escape into relaxation and provides the opportuni
This review is long overdue but our wonderful vacation at awestruck is not far from our minds. My husband and I fell in love with Estes, Colorado and were thrilled to return with our children the summer of 2012 and most recently in June of this year (2013). Both times we have had the privilege of renting awestruck with our friends and their children. The beautiful house sits on a mountainside facing Estes National Park. It is filled with every amenity possible. The bedrooms are spacious, boasting two master bedrooms with king-sized beds, a large third bedroom with twin beds and a loft area that converts into sleeping quarters. The floor plan was perfect for sharing and at the end of the day, our children could not wait to come "home" to it. They loved the play station, board games and playing in the hot tub and being visited by deer and elk daily. The house is minutes away from the Ymca of the Rockies. Our children attended daycamp and had the opportunity to go on hikes, ride horses, swim and much more. However, they were not the only ones having a wonderful time. We (the adults) went on long hikes, tried our hand at fly-fishing, filled memory cards with pictures of wildlife and scenic spots, and I took advantage of the spa at The Stanley lHotel. At the end of the day, we had a habit of heading into town with the kids for Go-cart races, shopping, and sight-seeing. Most of all, we looked forward to returning to awestruck for the opportunity to relax on the balcony while looking at the beautiful view. The adults had a nightly ritual of talking long into the night as the sun set and we watched the stars light up the sky (every night was more amazing than the previous one). Awestruck is a beautiful home and we cannot wait to return next year. It has become one of the reasons vacationing in Colorado is something we look forward to doing throughout the year. I hope this review encourages you to reserve your vacation accommodations at awestruck. It is breathtaking.
Percfect vacation stay
As we go to check into the home, for our second Summer in as many years, the lady says "enjoy the nicest home on the mountain". And that we did. They have thought of every need or want imaginable. That said, we spend nearly all of our time on the deck as the sun set and into the night taking in the cool mountain air. We hit the mountains of Rmnp by day, then retreat to the luxury of the home and company of our friends. Perfect for our two families and kids.
My family had a relaxing stay in awestruck. We enjoyed the hot tub after a rigorous day of hiking. The home has everything. We received a call from the owners the first day and welcomed us and treated us like his brother. We've stayed at Windcliff before but this time was our favorite. It was hard to leave. If you get an opportunity to stay in awestruck, you'll understand why it's our favorite.
Total Relaxation !!!
This place is exactly how it looks in the pictures and more ..we went for our 7 yr anniv and to get away and relax..we were extremely shocked at the Cabin and everything that came with it ...the owners and their hospitality was great ...they kept in touch with us before and through out the stay ..everything we needed was at the cabin ..everything was quality from the decor to the appliances..we were hoping to see wildlife at sometime during our 5 day stay ...we didn't expect to see it everyday ..as much as you feel like you are far away and at peace ..the town is just a 5-7 minute drive around the corner...i would recommend this place to anybody ! we usually go on about 3 or 4 vacations a yr and sooner or later you hit a dip in the road along the way ..i was please to say ..Awestruck raised the bar again ! thanks to the owners and the windcliff staff for sharing this Beautiful Cabin and the cleanliness
Very Pleased Return Windcliff visitors

A Must Stay Home
We stayed at Windcliff 2 years ago (Stoker Chalet)and needed a bigger home for our family. We wanted the same luxurious feel of that home but didn't need as many bedrooms. We made the perfect choice with awestruck. Everything was perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything else. All of our needs were meet even before we opened the door. We loved all the National Parks pictures from around the country that were actually taken by the owners. We were suprised by a phone call from the owners, making sure we had everything we needed and were happy with our stay. You don't see that kind of customer service just anywhere. It was everything we wanted for our 20th anniversary vacation and more. We can't wait to come back next year and spend more days enjoying the ammenties and beauty of awestruck and the Nat'l Park.

An absolute wonderful experience!
My wife and I were coming up on our 10 year anniversary and since we had honeymooned in Estes Park, we wanted to go back. We looked at many of the available properties in the area, and finally decided on awestruck. We were not disappointed in our choice. Not only did we see Elk, Mule Deer, and a Bobcat on the ride up to the house, we were blown away by the property. The house was gorgeous and looked brand new! Inside and out the condition of the property was top notch, and it had a beautiful interior, something you'd see on Hgtv (for all those guys forced to watch).
With an astonishing view of the mountains, you could spend the entire trip sitting in the great room just watching the day go by on the snowy peaks. But you're only minutes from town and the park, so there's much to do and see right outside the door. I took advantage of some of the trails beginning in the development and hiked to Teddy's Teeth above the house, while my wife curled up underneath a blanket and enjoyed the morning with a cup of coffee. It was an awesome view and a good challenge.
The owner called the day after we arrived and was extremely accommodating and great to talk with. One thing I would bring next time would be a spotting scope or good pair of bino's to enjoy the awesome surroundings.
Ten years after our first trip out, we had a wonderful time, and can't wait for the next 10 to pass so we can get back out to awestruck! Read more
Response from Windcliff Properties, Inc. - 05/12/2013
Thanks so much for your review of Awestruck and congratulations again on your 10th anniversary. You were indeed fortunate to see the bobcat which is a rare sighting compared to deer and elk.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you don't really wait ten more years to return!
This house has great views and all the conveniences!
We were very pleased with tho location of this house. The views were wonderful. Every convenience was available, we felt very "at home". Hiking was our goal, and many trails were near by. A very pleasant experience!
Our week in Estes Park was serene and beautiful.
Our theme for the week was seek and you shall find. Everything you could need in a home was at awestruck. The kitchen had all of the necessary gadgets to cook a big family meal. The views were gorgeous from so many vantage points in the home. We had a spectacular week and although I like to visit many different places, my husband and I have traveled to Rocky Mountain National Park many times and could definitely see ourselves coming back. If so, Awestruck would be our only choice in the area. Awestruck is a fabulous home with all of the creatures comforts you could ask for in a home.
Awestruck was absolutely perfect!
I invited two other couples to join us for my birthday weekend and we had an amazing time. The house had everything you could ever need. We hated to leave! I was very impressed that the owner called us the first morning to see if we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our stay. Such a nice personal touch!
Gorgeous, warm, cozy, perfect house.
It is hard to describe how gorgeous and wonderful awestruck is, or how perfect our stay at awestruck was. The house is warm, beautiful, and equipped with everything you could possibly want, and the views from all of the windows are stunning. We had such an amazing weekend, and saw deer and elk each day of our stay. My family cannot wait to go back. I can't think of a more perfect place to spend a family vacation. Thank you for opening your home to us!
Awesome at awestruck!
We were impressed with the pictures we saw on line before our trip, but that was nothing compared to what we saw when we got there. Even the pictures of the wildlife on line we were a little skeptical - those were lucky shots and we wont be that lucky. No way - the 1st night we were there a family of 5 deer came by to eat dinner.
"Awestruck" is the perfect name for this house.

Comfortable,spacious,relaxing and restful with brilliant views.
Two of us revelled in the space and luxury of this delightful home. We were two thirds of the way through a 3000 mile, three week road trip of Utah and Colorado. We spent four nights here and rested in the comfort and luxury this home offers. We spent the first day just sitting in the comfy chairs and sofas looking out on the panoramic views of the Rockies from the huge windows. This house is has so many quality features that its hard to list them. We were pleased to find the house was even better than we had anticipated. Excellent service from the owner and management. We intend to return.

Fabulous Family Retreat
We enjoyed a great week at awestruck. The owners have provided everything you could need or want for a great vacation. If traveling with toddlers, be prepared to use your ingenuity to block off 2 stair cases. The views are amazing in this comfortably luxurious home. The Windcliff staff was very responsive and took care of the few issues we had in the week. We enjoyed the location as well, far enough out of Estes to be very serene and quiet.
Let me just say that awestruck is the perfect name for this house. Not only was this home more beautiful than we expected, the views were incredible. There was nothing anyone could need staying here, the owners thought of everything. every little detail was thought out and perfect. For some of us, it was our first trip to the area and awestruck spoiled us. I loved that david, the owner even called us upon arrival to see if we needed anything..I loved that. Would definitely stay again!
Tom and Sue
Breathtaking views, beautiful property, you won't need for anyth
Service was terrific. The home is beautifully decorated. The pictures don't do it justice!! Seems like a small thing, but since cell phones don't work there, the owner has provided a land line for all to use--they have thought of everything. The hot tub was enjoyed by all. Our kids enjoyed hiking the trails right on the mountain. We had a wonderful week of vacation and would rent from Windcliff again!!

We have stayed in Estes many times over the years but this was one of the best experiences we have had. The home is truly amazing, and the owner's attention to detail and personal touches as well as the responsive management of the staff made the difference! We will certainly be back!

We had an awesome time!
Shout out! To David and his family for sharing their home with us during our getaway to Windcliff in Estes Park. The home is awesome and truly matched the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. The owner (David) actually took the time to call and welcome us on our first day, how cool is that! Thanks again for sharing your home and we look forward to returning to the awestruck as soon as possible. Btw-the new hot tub is great!

We look forward to enjoying another stay here !!
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home and having a most enjoyable stay. We appreciate all you provided in your home for your guests to use. The view is beautiful. We were married while in Estes, with our reception/dinner at the Stanley Hotel. We are high school sweet hearts that re-united after being apart for 31 years and missing each other all that time. Our phrase on the bottom of our wedding invitations is 'It is never too late to live happily ever after'. We could not believe our eyes when we walked in to the master bedroom and saw the needle point framed picture of the same phrase. We knew it was meant to be for us to spend that special time in your home. We enjoyed much wildlife near the house; mule deer right outside our windows, elk, wild turkey, rabbits, chipmonks, humming birds, many other birds.

Best home in Estes!!!
Simply the best experience that you can have in Estes!!! Words don't do it justice, must try!!!
I would love to stay here again! I have never stayed in such a gorgeous home we went for our honeymoon and I would love to go back with family it has 2 master bedrooms and I loved the wood burning fireplace we used that everyday! The location had wonderful views and we saw deer everyday as we left the mountain.
It was the perfect place to stay for our Honeymoon in the mounta
The cabin is decorated so neat! The layout of the house flows perfectly! The kitchen has everything you need to cook a wonderful meal. The hot tub is the nicest hot tub I have ever seen! This cabin makes you feel at home :) Read more

Thanks so much for the review. We are glad you enjoyed the hot tub as the owner just had a new tub installed. It is a 7 person, 39 jet state-of-the art model with a 4-zone multicolor lighting system. We agree it is a great hot tub!
We hope you come stay with us again.
It was awesome! The care put into the home is spectacular!

The house was amazing, you had everything you needed and more. God blessed us with such wonderful memories. We'll definately go back to capture more!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

What an adventure
We stayed at the house in mid November. The house is very well kept and the property management company is very organized. The house was clean and comfortable and had most amenities one would need. The only negative thing we can say is that due to extreme heavy winds the neighborhood lost power for one cold night and part of the next day. You can't get much of a cell phone signal, ATT or Verizon, in the area and we could not locate a corded phone (only cordless phones in the home) to call to get information about the power outage. We won't let that keep us from staying there again and hope to be back in the summer when the weather is much more forgiving.
Sugar Land, Texas
This was our second time to stay in this beautiful home. All of the furnishings and amenities make you feel just like you are in a luxury resort. The second day we were here, it snowed 20". What a spectacular sight. We will be back as soon as we can!

A+ Rental from the Home to the Staff!
Our first trip to Estes Park was in 1978. We started coming on a regular basis, 1-2 times per year, since 1990. The awestruck is by far our favorite home at Windcliff, not that all the homes are Great ... But the awestruck goes above & Beyond! For example, all homes come equiped with the essentials (hair dryers, iron & ironing board, etc) but David & Beth provide you with Top Notch products. They also continue to improve their home with new items. This year we were suprised to see they added Heated Floors in the bathrooms!! What a Plus!! There were also new decorations in the home. David makes it a point to call all guests on their first night ... Just to be sure everything is OK!! He makes you feel as if you have been "friends" for a long time. We look forward to all our trips at the awestruck Home and will be counting the months until we come back.
This house is amazing!! The views and facilities are the best. We enjoyed the hot tub,we enjoyed the trails,my husband and kids enjoyed the x-box!!! What a wonderful place and what a wonderful setting-reminds you of what an amazing place Estes Park is!
Just got back from staying at "Awestruck". What a wonderful place to stay. The house is set high on a mountain and has a wonderful view that is breath taking. The house is well decorated and has everthing you would need for a stay. Area very quite and you have almost a daily vist of wildlife. Daivid the owner called us to wish us a nice time and was very friendly. If you get some time to visit that area stay here you will not regret it.
A luxurious home base from which to explore Rmnp
I spent a long "girls getaway" weekend at awestruck with two friends. The house is beautiful and much bigger than we needed. The views are superb. It is very near the entrance to the national park, and the town of Estes Park. The only drawback to the house is that the two downstairs bedrooms share a bath, knocking the feeling of luxury down just a step. Also, it would have been nice to have had some basic food staples available. The kitchen was well appointed for cooking, but we had to buy everything (condiments, etc.) so it was a bit pricey. Would definitely recommend the house, though. The management and owner are all very helpful and attentive. Mountain views from every room! Read more

Thank you for your review. Windcliff is known for its spectacular views of the Continental Divide. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We regret that you did not know that we do not stock the homes with groceries. All homes include washer/dryer, dishwasher, microwave, TV with cable or satellite, DVD, telephone, wood burning or gas fireplace and fully equipped kitchen. All linens and firewood are furnished. Upon arrival our guests can expect to find a starter supply of paper goods, 2 single use boxes of Surf detergent, and dish washing liquid. We do not restock those items once depleted. We hope that you are able to visit us again soon.
This was our seventh September at Windcliff and the fifth home we have stayed in. It is a wonderful home with greeat views and every imaginable amenity. If this house doesn't have it you probably don't need it. This was the first time an owner has actually called us at the home to introduce himself and tell us about the unique features of the home. This made us fell as though we were true guests as opposed to mere renters. This is a truly lovely and wolcoming house that we hope to occupy for many September visits to come. If I were ever to use superlatives to descripe a place ( which I do not as rule) this would surely be the exception as per the title of this review.
If i could give it more stars i would!!
simply a wonderful house! we loved everything about it and the location! there was plenty of room for everyone (me, my wife, our 10 month old son and my parents).
we cooked at the house every night and enjoyed some spectacular views. The living room does get warm in the afternoon, but we just opened windows and got a really nice breeze going through the house. besides, i will gladly take the warmth in the afternoon to get the views that we were afforded out of those living room windows!

We have stayed at Windcliff many times and awestruck was by far the best property we have stayed in. We will definately stay here again.
We had a wonderful time at awestruck. The home was beautiful and so were the views of the mountains. It was a real treat for our family to be able to spend some time there. As opposed to some rental properties, Awestruck really felt like a home. It is clear that the owners took a great deal of pride in furnishing and decorating this home. Our family was very comfortable at awestruck - we enjoyed the mountain views from the great room, deck, and hot tub.
It was a really nice touch for the owner to call us the day we arrived to make sure we had gotten settled in and to see if there was anything we needed.
We had a great time and have many wonderful memories (not to mention photos and video) of our time at awestruck.

A beautiful house in a magnificent location
A beautiful house, in a magnificent location. The attention to detail in the house, where comfort and luxury are woven together, ensured we lacked for nothing. We are all from Europe and have spent many vacations in rental houses throughout France, Italy, Switzerland and England. Awestruck ranks as one of the very finest.
Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, after hiking in the Rocky Mountain National Park ,enjoying the panoramic view of the snow-capped mountains of the continental divide was just fabulous.
Awestruck was ahhh-mazing!!!
I rented this home for three nights as a surprise for my husband's 40th birthday. I was expecting a beautiful home from the pictures, but you know how it is... sometimes pictures lie. Not with this house. If anything, the pictures did not do this home justice!!! Everything was breathtakingly amazing... words fail me when I try to accurately express how blown away we were by this house!!
The home has every amenity you could possibly want or need... in fact, hubby and I started playing a game where we purposely attempted to think of random items and then try to find them in the house. I thought I had "won" when I wanted a cookie sheet and couldn't find one, but realized my attempt was thwarted when he discovered a multitude of cookie sheets in the drawer beneath the oven (don't know why I didn't look there first!). We never did come up with anything that the house didn't have. There were plenty of towels, about 10 extra pillows if the ones on the beds weren't to your liking, tons of dishes, cups, etc. We truly felt like we were home.
I also have to comment on the owner's thoughtfulness and appreciation for his renters. He called us the day we checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. He and his wife also left my husband a very thoughtful birthday gift, which just added to the amazing experience of celebrating his 40th at awestruck. :)
I would 100% recommend this property, as well as Windcliff, to friends or family... with no hesitation whatsoever!!
This home has every amenity you would want, including a gorgeous and expansive view of the Continental Divide. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and are hoping to make a repeat trip soon. Go for it! You would regret missing this beautiful mountain home.
Awestruck is right!
We had a wonderful time in Estes and loved awestruck. The home is wonderful, and the view is amazing. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

Best vacation home that we have ever rented
It was a pleasure dealing with the Windcliff Properties. We had our two babies along with our family and they stated that they had pac-n-plays and high chairs so we requested that two of each would be there. When we arrived we noted that there were no high chairs there, we called Windcliff and before we knew it a very nice girl was delvering our highchairs. We appreciated there promptness. There staff was very friendly and courteous. As for awestruck it was amazing. We have never felt so at home as we did here. The house is amazing and there is a beautiful view from every window. David the owner called us to see how everything was going and if we were ejoying ourselves on the first day. My son on Saturday wanted to watch some fights on t.v. that were a paid per view site and I called Windcliff to see if it would be possible for us to get that and they said they would contact the owner but they were not making any promises. A few hours later David called and talked to my son and he arranged for us to be able to watch the fights and they just added it to our bill. I was so impressed that he took the time to do that for my son and we very much appreciated that. We hope to come back again next year. I would recommend this house to anyone, it was so clean and furnished so beautifully I cant imange anyone not falling in love with it. We have been to Estes Park many times and I cant even imange coming back here and not staying at awestruck. The only negative feedback I could give is that I wished they supplied you with a few more dish towels and dish cloths, I think there were 2 or 3 of each and we did alot of cooking so we had to wash them everyday which was fine since there was a washer and dryer that we were able to use. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home, we will be back again!

A totally relaxing and peaceful experience.
The style and furnishings of the home went beyond our expectations in spending a few restful and peaceful days together in a mountain cabin.
We couldn't get enough of staring out the window or sitting on the deck of awestruck at the panoramic beauty that only the Rocky Mountains can offer.
It was a most romantic getaway with the comfort of the house, the views, the hot tub and the fireplace.
We will definitely visit awestruck again. Thank you.

Didn't want to leave
We enjoyed every minute of luxury and comfort at awestruck. It was a wonderful place to get away with good friends. Highlights were relaxing in the cozy couches, making s'mores in the wood-burning fireplace, and grilling on the back patio. Our only complaint was not being able to find oven mitts - this is how hard we had to try to find something to complain about!
Overall, it was a beautiful vacation with incredible views!
The check-in process was smooth and seamless. The house is absolutely incredible! All the detail the homeowner has put into this house will leave you wanting your own. I highly recommend this home to anyone that is vacationing in Estes Park.

Amazing Vacation Home Rental Property

"A Room With a View"
After some initial weather related setbacks, which were no ones fault and which were handled admirably by the reception staff, we settled in for very pleasant 5 night stay.
The house is quite beautiful and fully appointed; a great room with fireplace and a dramatic view of the Rockies, a kitchen dining area with every need satisfied, Bedrooms with beautiful views and comfortable beds and bedding, sitting areas with Tv's, videos, games, etc. We wanted for nothing and enjoyed the location, convenient to both Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park, where we enjoyed snow shoeing and hiking through the forests and around the lakes.
The nameof the property describes it to a 'T'! Your search is overonce you located this rental. A wood fire place,indoor whirlpool tub, outdoor hot tub, rustic Western wood look, and a wood stove in the bedroom. Everything you want is in this house!

A Romantic and Luxurious Setting!
My boyfriend and I rented the awestruck home for our anniversary. We were so happy with the friendly and accommodating staff at the Windcliff office. The house is beautifully maintained and we felt very comfortable there. The location is beautiful with breath taking views. We definitely plan to rent through Windcliff again for an even longer stay... we did not want to leave after the weekend!

Our trip and stay was awestruck in everyway!
Our family was "Awestruckâ€ during our entire stay at awestruck! My husband, our 10 year old daughter and 4 month old baby girl all made the trip from sunny Florida to Estes Park. This was a memorable and wonderful get away. It was our older daughter's first time seeing snow. Our family pictures were amazing. The mountains in the back drop. The wild animals we saw every day. Elk, Deer and rabbits.
The home was so comfortable for us. It had every convenience that we could have ever asked for or expected. Awestruck exceeded our expectations. It was so private and roomy. I love to cook and I have never rented a home that had a kitchen as well stocked with kitchen ware as this one. A cooks dream! Even the last detail of providing glass storage Tupperware for left over's made cleaning up so easy.
Everywhere we went in the home, we could see the beauty surrounding us. The views from everywhere were just breathtaking. Waking up in the morning, eating meals and lounging around a fire in the evening all provided the most relaxing and gorgeous views.
A nice fun touch was the games that we supplied in the house. Very cool, this owner thought of the guests every possible need.
I loved that we never ran out of towels and had an overage of pillows and blankets. The full size washer and dryer made keeping up with family laundry easy. The hangers supplied in all the closets made it easy for us to keep things neat and organized.
It was all the little things that made our stay effortless. The home, it's dÃ©cor and the comfortable furniture made this our favorite home away from home. We can't wait to visit awestruck again and look forward to sharing our experience and wonderful vacation with our friends and family now that we are home.

My wife and I spent Nov. 1 - Nov. 5 at awestruck. Besides the obvious that the views and location are ideal, Awestruck (what an appropriate name) is a phenomenal place to stay. We have stayed at 7 different properties at Windcliff and awestruck is in our opinion the best so far! The owners have thought of every detail to make this an unforgettable place to vacation. We did not need anything that wasn't provided by the owners, in fact we always bring a laptop with us on vacation but a desktop computer is provided to be used by the guests. They even go so far as to provide an "Instruction Manual" that details how to operate the blu-ray system, theater system, DTV, hot tubs, whirlpool, etc... and where to find items within the home that may be needed while vacationing. Speaking of DTV we found the many music stations provided by DTV to be ideal when relaxing on the deck with the doors opened. The furnishings and interior decorations are comfortable and inviting and the photos lining the walls, sitting on tables, counters, etc... are ideal for a mountain vacation home. We just hope the word about this property doesn't spread, we're afraid it wont be available the next time we plan at trip to the mountains!
My spouse had a wonderful time at the awestruck. The veiw from the house is great. Couldn't ask for a better place to spend a romantic weekend

Awestruck was really awesome. The house was a great find. View was terrific. Checking in and out easy. Awestruck had everything in it we needed. Only thing was that we prefer music to tv. Would have been nice to have had a sound system. But it was a great week none the less. Great time watching the full moon in front of the fire.
awestruck is awesome
we had a wonderful time at awestruck and rmnp. we loved everything about our condo and we will return!
Awestruck in Fall
This place was a real gem. We had a fantastics times, it was as close to having your own personal mountian chalet as you can get without actually buying, one, they had all the comforts of home and the photography on the walls was fantastic. The owner even called us the first night to check in. I would highly recomend this property to anyone, it is in a great secluded location.
Very quiet in the mountains. Listened to an owl across the valley. Great place to get away, yet so close to all the Estes Park and National Park activities. Sunset views are incredible.
Had a great stay at awestruck. Everything was top-notch. House is beautiful and the views are fantastic!
totally awesome...very comfortable with breathtaking views
The home"Awestruck" was warm and inviting. It had all the comforts of home and more. The views from every room in the place were breathtaking. It was located not far from Estes Park and the Rocky Mt National Park. We felt comfortable in it the minute we walked in. It was one of the best places we have ever stayed in. The outdoor hot tub was a great touch. All in all, it was a terrific experience.
Perfect for Families
We stayed in awestruck for 3 nights in august of 2010. The layout of the house was perfectly suited for us and we loved everything about the house. The views were great and the wildlife was entertaining as well. We would love to come back in the future and look forward to staying in awestruck again!

Struck with awe
This was by far our best rental experience ever (30 + years) ! The cabin was immaculate, the decor reflected the mountain experience and the view was spectacular.
I was also impressed by the fact that the owner called to find out if everything was OK and if we were having a good time. In fact, he took the time to suggest some very creative hikes in the park. We are definitely interested in returning again to awestruck next year if the property is available.
Awestruck was the most enjoyable place we have stayed at Windlciff or anywhere else on our travels. The attention to detail was superb, the setting was ideal and the photo gallery was inspiring! Our family had plenty of space for 7 adults and an almost two-year old. As former owners at Windcliff, we greatly appreciate how special the setting can be year round. We definitely plan to return next summer for two more glorious weeks in the Rockies.
house was beautiful...had everything needed for a great vacation. view was awesome...well decorated , very comfortable and relaxing
Awestruck is the perfect name for this home!
Awestruck is the perfect name for your home! Not only are the location and views from every window incredible, you have thought of every detail to make our stay amazing and unforgettable. We will always remember that this is the place where our son alex first saw snow and deer. Oh - and the photos placed in the home are beautiful! Thank you for sharing your home with us and for making this a trip we will always remember. Read more

Great Vacation Home
Awestruck is a beautiful home nestled in the Rocky Mountains. It is spacious, cozy, rustic and very comfortable. Great views from all windows and doors! The amenities--gas grill, hot tub, fire place, HDTV's, Free domestic long distance, WiFi internet--added to our overall experience.
The staff at Windcliff was very friendly and helpful.
Check in and check out was simple and uncomplicated.
We would love to stay again!!
My wife and I stayed at Awestruck during our Honeymoon in Estes Park. Since we arrived on Sunday, the office was closed. However, there was a packet left for us with keys, directions, etc. The drive up the mountain was incredible with deer, elk, and the most amazing view of the Rockies. We were told a 4x4 is a must, and though I recommend one if possible, some folks had small cars. As for the house, we could not have asked for more. The house was clean, comfortable, and way more than enough for a couple. With 2 kings, 2 twins, and pull outs there is plenty of sleeping room for a larger family. Awestruck has a Rustic feel, while keeping all the comforts of home. Internet is available, long distance included, and direct tv in all the rooms. There's nothing bad about Awestruck other than the feeling of leaving. We loved it!
I would do it again
We went for a weekend during late January 2010, for some snow shoeing and winter activities. The weather was very cold outside nice and warm inside.
No need to leave the house, it had enough amenities to keep us occupied. Well stocked kitchen with tools. There were only 2 of us but the house is big enough for 6 comfortably. We normally visit Estes Park twice a year and rent a cabin with hot tub. Never again, it will be a house with a hot tub, for the little bit of extra money per night it is worth it.
Clean, a lot of room and nice
AJ and Tobbie
Perfect Beautiful Comfortable
We have fallen if love with Awestruck. So much so that we stayed two weekends in January. The home is beautiful and comfortable with everything you could need. The staff at Windcliff is beyond great, and has been more than helpful. There is no doubt that we will be back...and soon I hope!
Awestruck Birthday Vacation
The home was beautiful and well furnished. The view from the living room was amazing. The hot tub and jacuzzi tub in the master bath were great. The furnace fan went out the first day, so the first night was chilly. We did not want to move, so the staff supplied radiant heaters and extra firewood for the fireplace and wood burning stove. The home was nice and cozy for the remainder of the vacation. We hope to stay in this home again next year. Read more

Had a really great time, Awestruck is a really nice place and looking forward to going back. Only complaint is that I a week ago had as for some available dates from the WIndcliff Properties as to staying in this home again and as of today still have not heard back.
