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!
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!
Fort Wayne, Indiana
After reading the reviews and doing research we decided to choose the awestruck rental and we have absolutely no regrets in doing so. This home is amazing and caters to your every need. From the moment we walked in, we all felt right at home. My fiance' and I were traveling on vacation w/ my two children who are 9 and 11. The views, inside and out, are even better than the pictures!! The beauty of this home and the love that has been put into it by the owners surpassed our expectations. The owners called the day we checked in and welcomed us, making sure we have all that we need and arrived safe and also emailed again after we left to make sure we made it home safely. They are truly a pleasure to meet and deal with and take pride in their beautiful home and sharing it with others. This place was so "homey" from the beautiful hard wood floors, knotty pine, comfortable furniture, beds and fireplace...not to mention the heated bathroom floors, whirlpool tub and hot tub. Absolutely amazing!!! There was so much space in this home that the only regret we had was not taking more family and friends with us!! lol The owners provide everything you could possibly need or think of. The kitchen was stocked with everything for cooking in and plenty of dishes, glasses, etc...The view from the dining table was beautiful as well as the view from every single window in the home!! The decorations and photography of this home was so enjoyable to see. The Windcliff Property managers were a pleasure to deal with and also welcomed us and called to check in and let us know they would be coming to plow the drive after a big snowfall. Getting up at 6:00 am to watch the sunrise was so worth it and recommended by David, the owner. My kids enjoyed the big televisions, games, movies and xbox that are provided and had so much fun just "living" here for 5 days. We spent a lot of time inside the home and a lot of time out exploring as well. We saw elk and deer right by the house, every day of our stay. I think they feel right at home there as well. Rocky Mountain National Park is so easy to get to, as well as downtown Estes, restaurants, shops, etc...The welcome book was so nice to have because they even pointed out favorite hikes that can be accessed from the home. I have nothing bad to say at all about our vacation. It was like a dream come true and so amazing!! We have definitely found our vacation home and plan to return again with more of our family and friends to share it with. If you want the perfect place to stay, this is it!! There aren't enough words to describe it!!! Definitely awestruck!!!
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!
Greenwood Village, Colorado
The photos don't do it justice
You know how sometimes you look at the on-line photos of a property and the real thing just doesn't live up to the pictures? You know how sometimes you read the rave reviews and when you get there you wonder what those people were thinking? Well awestruck is far better than the pictures. The view is far better than the pictures. The property is far better than the reviews. And snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park is heaven. And following a cold, snowing day in the mountains with a really hot hot tub (and really cold beer) is the best of all. Full disclosure: the property managers keep the house in tip top condition, but we found them difficult to deal with. They raised the price above the price quoted on Flip Key, and wouldn't honor their advertised price (bait and switch), but we went anyway and the place was worth the money. They pushed the "property damage insurance" (which we declined) and then we had a hassle at the end over some small damage -- in fairness, this was resolved satisfactorily. Conclusion: we'll go back again and again.
Response from Windcliff Properties, Inc. - 02/26/2013
There is no mis-representation on the Flipkey advertising page for any Windcliff vacation rental. Since this is a third-party advertising site we do not have control over how our information is formatted, but the Awestruck listing (and all listings) clearly shows that there is a per-person charge.
The Flipkey ad contains a link to the Windcliff website where a guest can get an exact quote right from the home page, a feature not offered by Flipkey, as well as the ability to call us to get further information. There are optional coverages for damage protection and trip insurance which this guest declined.
Our housekeeping staff reported damage to the refrigerator door after this guest departed and since we follow up on all reported damage the guest was contacted. The situation was resolved by Windcliff management.
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!
Kansas City, Missouri
If you're looking to get away from the big city and need a relaxing weekend away from it all, then look no further! This place is amazing! The house is extremely clean and welcoming. The views are breathtaking!!
My husband and I will recommend this home to all of our friends and family.
We couldn't get ourselves away from the beautiful views which you get to enjoy from every room in the house! Rent it, you will not regret it!
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.
Graham and Gloria Rodgers
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.
St. Louis, MO
A beautiful vacation home that lives up to the great ratings
We are a family of four (Mom, Dad, 2 young adult children) who stayed for 5 days at awestruck in Estes Park this September. Thanks to Trip advisor and Flip Key reviews, we had very high expectations. This place is truly worthy of all the great reviews! It starts with extremely friendly and customer-oriented owners, who clearly have worked hard to provide an outstanding experience for their guests.
The home is very nicely furnished in true "mountain retreat" style, with every amenity you could ask for. We cooked several meals there, and always found whatever we needed to prepare and serve our food. All of the utensils, dishes, and appliances were very high quality and super-clean.
The views were entrancing, whether from the deck or from inside the house. After hours of hiking, we sure appreciated the hot tub to tend to our sore muscles! I loved the photographs that adorned every room, all taken by the owner, with amazing shots of wildlife from Colorado and alaska (and other places, I'm sure).
The folks at the gatehouse, where you check in, are very friendly and helpful, with good advice on sensible precautions (bears are active this year!) and suggestions for local activities. Honestly, the home was so clean and welcoming, the only problem I had with the place was checking out...we really hated to leave.
Highly, highly, recommended for couples or families who are looking for an amazing place to stay that offers privacy and all the comforts of home, in a fabulous mountain setting.

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.
Maple Grove, Minnesota, United States
Lovely, absolutely lovely.
The house is awesome for a large extended family gathering. We have two kids under the age of four and there were six adults. There was more than enough room that we didn't feel cramped and were able to get some space from each other. David (the owner) is so helpful and nice too! The view is spectacular. My favorite thing in the morning (especially since both of our kids remained on Central time during out entire vacation) was the wake up and watch the sunlight hit the mountains through the big windows. It was wonderful.
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 had high expectations after reading reviews and seeing photos of Awestruck and we were not disappointed. We were in awe from the minute we stepped inside! The house does not have the feel of a rental...it's more like a home of a friend.
My wife and I traveled with my 20 year old son and 18 year old daughter (tough ages to please) and they truly enjoyed hanging in the great room, playing xBox, and reading on the deck overlooking Rocky Mountain National Park. They also took use of the iHome unit in the kitchen by playing country music via an iPhone throughout our stay and watched a few of the movies available in the well stocked collection.
During our stay we took advantage of activities within 20 minutes - golf, fishing, downtown shopping, dinning out, touring the park, and horseback riding. The later I do not recommend the day before a 4 hour flight home as our bottoms are somewhat sore :-). We also spotted Elk and deer almost ever time we ventured out.
I would recommend Awestruck to anyone looking for the adventures of the Estes Park area or someone looking for high end accommodations (at a decent price) for relaxing whilst taking in awesome views.
Some tips - you may want to check out what's in the kitchen before doing any serious food shopping as the kitchen is well stocked with the basics. I also suggest getting use to the altitude for a few days before traveling into the higher sections of the park. You also want to avoid downtown on the weekends if possible as it gets busy (or venture into town early or later in the evening). We went horseback ridding just down the road at Cowpoke Corner Corral and took the 2 hour tour which was basically switchbacks up and down the mountain. While we did enjoy the ride and views, I think we would have preferred their sister stable rides in the park. And again, you may not want to ride the day before a long journey home.
I wanted to end my review by saying the house has all the comfort of home...but...we don't have a 7 person hot tub, a great room with such views, a sunken tub in our master bedroom, a king size bed in our daughters room, views of the Rocky Mountains, or so many actives within 15 minutes of our home. We make a point to do something special during our annual vacation together and this one is going down as one of the best!

Off the charts amazing. Wake up to and live with breath taking views. First class accomodations, decorating and amenities. You will want to stay longer. Extremely accomodating.

Awestruck offered us luxury and comfort in our very favorite pla
Awestruck is a beautiful home located in a spectacular setting. Offering terrific views of the mountains, every creature-comfort one could want, and personal touches that make it more of a vacation "home" than a rental house, Awestruck was the perfect place for us to stay. It is immaculate, wonderfully decorated, and furnished perfectly. The amenities are unsurpassed...every appliance you could want...fully stocked kitchenware...upscale TVs and video equipment...comfy furniture & beds...gas grill...washer/dryer...the works! Perhaps one of the very best features of the home is the vast collection of wildlife photography (all taken by the owner, himself)...stunning work that truly adds to value of the home! We cannot say enough great things about awestruck...we'll be back, for sure!
Lyle and Cathy
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!
Randy & Lisa (Spears) Lollar
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.
Cactus Bob's BBQ Corral
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 :)
Response from Windcliff Properties, Inc. - 05/17/2012
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!
Rio Rancho, NM
Awestruck is an understatement
I felt like a Queen staying at this castle! The attention to detail was amazing & there wasn't a single thing I would have changed (okay maybe the road getting in but I understand without the trek I wouldn't have the views...so it was well worth it). High end everything and truly unbeatable views. Best beds we have ever slept on & by far the best place we have ever stayed. Next time, we're bringing guests! I'm still speechless. The pics don't even do it justice.
Do keep in mind, though, that Windcliff has a zero cancellation policy w/n 30 days of arrival, and they told me that includes weather that would prohibit you from accessing the cabin. For us, it was a gamble worth taking, but I also think it is worth mentioning.
Response from Windcliff Properties, Inc. - 03/14/2012
Thanks for the great review! To clarify, the deposit is non-refundable once you are inside thirty days before arrival. The final payment is due 14 days before arrival.
We regret that we can't make exceptions for weather but want to assure everyone that both Colorado and Windcliff roads are snowplowed in inclement weather and guests driving 4 wheel drive vehicles will be able to make it to their homes. We strongly advise against winter guests driving 2 wheel drive cars.
We recommend trip insurance for our guests who want to insure against trip interruptions. Our rental agreement and policies are posted on the Windcliff website at www.windcliff.com. Thanks again for the review!

Absolutely amazing property and mountain views...just outstandin
We planned a trip to "Awestruck" to suprise my Mother who is battling liver cancer so bravely! I don't know what to say but thank you Beth and David for allowing us to spend the most wonderful time together as a family! We played games, set by the fire, grilled out on the deck with the amazing views, enjoyed the hot tub, and watched the Giants win the Super Bowl (Go Giants!). There were seven of us that stayed and we had plenty of room throughout this amazing house! My Mom had such a wonderful time and I think this is just what she needed to get her mind and spirit in a good place. I feel when she returns home she will be able to fight even harder to beat her cancer! We took lots of pictures of the deer and elk that wandered by the property. My brothers and I enjoyed some morning runs around the eaglecreek circle loop but since I'm from Indiana I had to walk up the hills, the altitude will humble you no matter what kind of shape you are in. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this property with us and special thanks to Windcliff Properties for making the reservation and stay effortless! We cant wait to come back!!!
This house made for a magical honeymoon!
This house was simply amazing! So much room and so many things to do! My husband and I chose this house for our honeymoon because of its location, good reviews, and breathtaking scenery. The pictures posted cannot portray the beauty of the scenery surrounding this home. Another reason why we chose this house is for seclusion (just enough seclusion that we wouldn't have other homes in our view of the mountains). We stopped to get groceries and were not bored for 1 second at this home for the 3 days we stayed. The hot tub, games in the loft, movies that are provided, & wildlife surrounding the area made our vacation enjoyable and relaxing. We are from Texas and were worried about driving in snow but the roads leading to this home are very well kept! Windcliff office staff were super friendly and the owner will call you the first night of your stay to welcome you.
We've already started to plan our next vacation in this home for next year!

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.
Jon & Susan Davis
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.
I was totally awestruck
This house was one of the most beautiful homes I have seen,& the views where spectacular. It meant alot to us that the owner contacted us when we got there and asked us how things were going. We enjoyed his booklet giving us a little history on his vision on how he wanted this house to be enjoyed by all guest. Everything in that house from the furniture, to the wall decor is so inviting, You become so relaxed in this house. This was one off the most relaxing vacations I have ever been on. I will definatly come back and stay here again. Thanks to the owners for letting us enjoy your beautiful home!!!
I will recommend this place to everybody I know.
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!
Response from Windcliff Properties, Inc. - 10/15/2011
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.
Awestruck Has It all
We loved everything about this house--the setting, the views, the amenities, and the furnishings. The owners have taken great care to make this the perfect getaway. David, the owner, even check in with us the first evening to be sure that we were comfortable and that everything met our expectations.
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!
Cedar Rapids, Iowa
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.
The best vacation we have ever had. The house was beautiful and spotless. Everything you could possibly need was already there. The views from the house were breath taking.
Perfect weather. The home owner even called our first day to see if we got there OK and did we need anything. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Our family will be booking this house again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
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.

We were "Awestruck" by awestruck--Beautiful, Warm & Amazing Home
Awestruck is the best home we've ever rented. The owners thought of absolutely everything to make their guests feel at home. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need for cooking, baking, and entertaining. There is even an "Honor Bar" that stocks bottles of wine that you just replace if you drink. The decor in the home is beautiful; beautiful wild life photos taken by David, the owner, line the walls of the home. The sheets on the very comfortable beds are soft and of a high-quality grade, which is usually uncommon for a rental home. Anyone could literally move right in to this home and not need to bring anything but their clothes. There is an Xbox and games, Blue Ray DVD player and movies, CD player and Cd's, a connection for your Ipod and speakers, a hot tub that seats up to 6 people, and top-of- the- line T.V.'s. The scenery from where this home sits is magnificent.
You can really tell how much pride the owners take in this home. It is also evident how seriusly they take making their guests happy. David even called us to welcome us, ensure everything was in working order, and give us tid bits of information on great things to do while here.
The check-in office staff are so welcoming, helpful, and knowledgeable of the area and all it has to offer. There is even a resident kitty who lives in the check-in office named Mr. Bond and he greets you as well with open paws.
We don't want to leave but alas, we must. This is where we will stay when we return though. No need to look into any other rental properties.

Amazing Vacation Home Rental Property
Outstanding rental property! Excellent service and attention to detail in all areas from Windcliff management. Loved the home and decorating, felt very welcoming. Immaculate! Views are unsurpassed. Lives up to its name "Awestruck".

"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.

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.

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.
