We make yearly trips to this home and have never been dissatisfied. The house and view are amazing. If you're a star-gazer this home located at 9,500 feet above sea level will give you a breathtaking view of the heavens. If you want peace and quiet this home also delivers. We visit in February so the wind howls but that's the only noise you'll hear. It is a great get-away place! Wi-fi seems slow, but with a hot tub, sauna, pool table and plenty of coziness, you won't miss the internet that much!
“Perfect home with the Perfect View!”
We enjoyed a wonderful week with our family - coming from Panama City, FL, Charlotte, NC, and Seattle, WA. Sponsel was the perfect place and so very comfortable. We were there the first week in Sept. 2015 and the weather was beautiful - nice and cool in the mornings and warm afternoons. We used the fans on a few days in the afternoons and they worked well to keep it comfortable. The bedrooms are private and quiet and the great rooms, decks, and other amenities all enjoyable. 5 Stars!
“Very nice - but beware of the sun!”
Fantastic property! Amazingly beautiful house, location, etc.. Windcliff is tops. Just one word of caution - Sponsel has floor-to-ceiling windows over three floors, which, in the summer or when unusually warm, translates to a greenhouse effect. When we checked in (late September) the temperature inside was just about 90 degrees, and it took quite some time and a drastic weather change before it cooled down. When it is in the 50s or colder outside, the glass/greenhouse effect is wonderful. When the place heats up to 85 degrees or hotter - not so great.
“Large home, lots of amenities, high on the hill”
This large home was wonderful for our children and their families. We had plenty of beds for 11 of us. We had two small children who did well although the deck was off limits for the 1 year old, and the surrounding land was steep so no outdoor play. There was both a highchair and pac-n-play provided. It was quite clean, kitchen was equipped well, and had a beautiful view looking west to the Divide. We were near the YMCA camp and the RMNP and a short drive to Estes proper. We enjoyed eating most of our meals in the home and hanging in the family areas. There is a hot tub which was nice but the head rests need replaced due to oxidation. The outdoor grill was nice but wouldn't heat adequately. We contacted the Windcliff office and someone was sent up and apparently tried to repair while we were absent, but we didn't notice a difference. Just wouldn't heat adequately. We also notified Windcliff regarding the freezer portion of Subzero frig also not being cold enough despite adjustments to keep ice cream frozen. Made ice but quite slow. Being the July 4 weekend, not surprised that they weren't completely repaired but it would have been nice. Also, the back patio area on the lower level was in the midst of renovation so we didn't use the area and the construction related dumpster blocked some access to the driveway parking. Overall, still a very nice home, pretty upscale but just needs some improvements. The view was worth all of it!
Response from the manager Thanks for your review. We would like everyone to know that our occupancy limit is 8 persons due to zoning. We made an exception since this guest had small children with them. We apologize that a new roof was being installed on Sponsel that overlapped your stay, accounting for the dumpster and back patio area. The new roof is scheduled for completion by the end of July and is not worked on while we have guests. The grill problem has been fixed, we appreciate your noticing this. The refrigerator was also serviced soon after you left and works fine now. We regret that in our mountain location we sometime cannot schedule appliance contractors for next-day service. We hope you visit Windcliff again soon!
We have had the chance to stay at this house twice now and it so beautiful! The staff at windcliff property management is always so incredibly nice. We are already deciding when we will be going back.
“Wonderful home, amazing views”
The amenities, views and spaciousness of this home are all exceptional. The Windcliff staff made our stay enjoyable from the moment we arrived. We put the hot tub, 3 flat panel TVs, wet bars, well equipped kitchen to use. There was more than enough space for everyone to stretch out and find space, as we were a group of 7 adults. It should be noted that while the appliances are high end, the kitchen is starting to look dated. Functionally it worked great with more than enough space for multiple people to assist in making meals. We did have a small plumbing leak while we were there, but the Windcliff folks assisted in getting it corrected without too much inconvenience to our stay.
“Amazing Stay at Sponsel”
Our family had a wonderful stay in Estes Park at the Sponsel House. The house is amazing. The views are beautiful. The staff was great and very responsive after hours when we had minor trouble we had with the new Direct TV (playoffs - otherwise we had no use for the tv). The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking in and cooking out. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was a little warm the first evening, but once we opened the windows we were comfortable the rest of the stay. My family and I recommend Windcliff and Sponsel.
“Fantastic view at the top”
The Sponsel is great. Everything you will need is there. The view is fantastic. The hot tub relaxing after a day in town or the park. We did not lack for anything. The staff of Windcliff are great at what they do. This is our second stay at the Windcliff properties and have loved both. Will do it again. Just be aware their are a lot of stairs. So you will get your exercise before hitting the park. But not a problem. We loved it.
Response from the manager Thanks so much for your great review! We wish everyone who is interested in renting Sponsel to know that the home is on three levels and is equipped with an elevator that completely eliminates stairs, unless you want the exercise!
For the last four years we've stayed anywhere from 1-2 weeks at this wonderful home in Estes Park. Magnificent views, friendly and helpful staff, and an amazing house make this the place we all look forward to coming to. We enjoy the absolute silence when you step out onto the deck in the winter, the breathtaking views, the feeling you're almost able to touch the stars at night, and the knowledge that if we need anything the staff are always willing to help. We have looked for places to stay in other cities but we have never found anyplace that has everything this place has for the price.
“Beautiful Home with Outstanding Views”
We stayed in the home for a long weekend and were very satisfied. The home is beautiful and spacious. The views of the front range and other mountains is unbelievably beautiful. We will definitely be coming back.
