“An absolutely perfect, peaceful, and breathtaking mountainside retreat!”
We absolutely LOVED Awestruck! The home is located in such a beautiful, peaceful area. While the location is close to downtown Estes and very near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, we really didn't want to leave the home. The views from Awestruck are unparalleled! From sunrise to sunset, whether sitting on the deck, relaxing in the great room, soaking in the Jacuzzi in the master bath, washing dishes at the kitchen sink, or enjoying the large hot tub, you are always afforded an unbelievably beautiful and picturesque view of the Rocky Mountains - something you never tire of seeing! While there, we were also treated to multiple visits from resident deer, ground squirrels, and wild turkeys - right outside the front door. This home, while being spacious, is also very homey and comfortable. I don't believe there is an uncomfortable seat in the house, and the beds are amazing! In addition to the log cabin type interior, the owners have paid great detail to the decor. Wonderful photographs taken by the owner are on display throughout the home. From beautiful to quirky, we enjoyed them very much. There are also several unique touches - a view of a duck family as seen from underwater, and rock climbers scaling the wall above the front door. On the practical side, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need: dishes, cooking utensils and pans, a large variety of wine glasses, and a nice assortment of staples and seasonings. There is even a selection of wines to enjoy, you just replace what you use :) The staff at Windcliff Properties were very nice and helpful when we checked in. And while we did not need to contact them for anything, I am confident they would have made sure all our needs were met. Once we were settled in, we were also greeted with a personal call from the owner who was very pleasant and pleased that he was able to share his wonderful home with us. Our time at Awestruck was wonderful, and we will definitely be returning! Whether you want to spend time in the park and downtown Estes or just relax and enjoy the peace and beauty of the home and its surroundings, it truly is the perfect place to stay!!
Response from the owner We can't thank you enough for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. We are very happy to know you enjoyed all the little details we added to make Awestruck memorable. We certainly look forward to sharing Awestruck with you again soon.
“Birthday Celebration of college friends”
The house was amazing and the views I could have looked at all day long. I enjoy cooking and found that the kitchen had everything I could possibly want in making some great recipes. The weather was perfect and us girls enjoyed being together in such a lovely home celebrating our 65th birthdays. We used the hot tub but found that even though there was a book telling us instructions on how to use the tub we found it a little confusing and not very specific. We did have a little hard time figuring out how to turn the temp down in the hot tub. With it being chilly at night the hot tub was nice getting in and relaxing us after a day of hiking. The owner was very nice and called us on arrival and asked if we had any questions or concerns and I thought that was pretty nice of him. Because there was no cell phone service at the house I thought it was pretty nice of the owner to let us use his landline to make phone calls home. It is a beautiful home and I would gladly recommend it to my friends coming to Estes for a visit...
Response from the owner We are happy you had perfect weather to enjoy the incredible views - even while cooking your meals. We are happy your friends were able to enjoy the hot tub to celebrate your 65th birthdays. Based on your feedback, we will add more specific details to the hot tub instructions. We hope you will return before it is time to celebrate your 70th birthdays.
“This place will truly leave you AWESTRUCK!”
All the reviews are dead on--this place is not just alright, it's phenomenal! Every creature comfort you can imagine is there. The views are spectacular; the house is top notch. The owner went out of his way to call (as he apparently always does) and check if everything was alright. If you want to start a fire, all the wood is provided. Even the kitchen is stocked with the most common spices/seasonings (even though we brought our own). The owner even provided sleds for some winter fun. The owners are so gracious. My older child (AKA husband) cracked one of the sleds; I contacted the owner and offered to replace it, but he told me don't even worry about it. There were floor warmers in the bathroom, many books to read in the loft, and lots of family board games to play. If you have little ones that may be afraid of the dark, there are even night lights in the bedrooms. The only thing we had a bit of a problem with was due to weather--and that is beyond anyone's control. After a whole day of snow, we managed to get up the mountain to the house only to find that we could not make it up the steep driveway in our SUV (FWD) due to the ice that had formed on it. The vehicle couldn't gain traction and began slipping backwards--VERY SCARY! We ended up having to shovel snow from the driveway and then pour hot water on the ice spots to melt them. But even the snow shovels were in the garage available for our use--thank goodness. Next time, we'll probably get a vehicle with AWD. Other than that, we had no problems. The pictures you see -- even though they show exactly how the house looks -- just don't do this beautiful home justice. Everything was wonderful and we will definitely return again! Thanks for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!
Response from the owner Thank you for taking the time to share your positive experience. Beth and I are so glad that your family enjoyed Awestruck as much as we do. We certainly hope we can welcome you back again to make even more memories.
“Phenomenal home and wonderful place to stay!”
My wife and I picked this home to be where we would spend our honeymoon. It ended up being the best choice we could have possibly made. It is incredibly spacious and comfortable. The views are top-notch. The bedding is incredibly comfortable and warm. We enjoyed being able to cook our own food and enjoy comforts of home while in a new and exciting place. With no particular order of importance, here are some things that we loved about the home...and some thoughtful touches that the owner has added: - giant coffee mugs (seriously, these are huge! And so nice to hold while looking out over the mountains in the morning) - wildlife photography all over - it really is beautiful. My wife was especially delighted with the theme of the powder-room pictures. - binoculars provided to look out over the valley and into Rocky Mountain National Park (what a thoughtful addition) - large wood-burning fireplace and great room to play games, read a book or just look out the window and enjoy the view - heated floors in the master bathroom (seriously, this was amazing) - beautiful decorations throughout the home including thick, soft blankets - thoughtful phone call from the home owner to provide tips on local places to eat and visit There are countless other things that we could add. In short, this place is spectacular and we would gladly visit again. As with every place, there were a couple of small things here and there that needed to be addressed, but the property management company was eager to serve from the beginning and quick to respond as needed. No further complaints or concerns are necessary. This place is fantastic for a couple or a family to enjoy time away with a breathtaking view out of almost every window. Thank you to the owners and to Windcliff Properties for making our honeymoon a relaxing and enjoyable one.
“Ultimate dream come true!”
We fell in love with the Awestruck the minute we saw it. Our "Dream On" came true to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary!! We were very impressed that the owner called and wished us a nice stay and "Happy Anniversary". Awestruck lives up to its name. Everything about the place was very comfortable and made you feel at home, the hardwood floors were a nice touch also. The hot tub was fabulous and the fireplace was very inviting! It was so nice to be able to wake up and look out our window and see the sunrise over the mountains and watching the deer feed right by the house! We also were able to have our daughter and her significant other enjoy the stay also. We will be back to enjoy the Awestruck again!
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!
