Honeymoon

We came here for our honeymoon in December 2012! We enjoyed the hiking around the house, and the amenities of the house. It is close to town where we enjoyed dinners out and shopping! We discuss our return often!

No words

I don't believe there are words to describe the Awestruck. It's the perfect name, that's for sure. We've been completely spoiled now. The views are amazing. The feel of the home is just that home. It's such a grand place, but still so cozy feeling. It's simply stunning!! Very clean, to boot! It was already booked this year for the time we were coming to Estes, so we're already trying to get it for next year, but it's booking up quickly and with no wonder why. Just the premier home away from home. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home! We've fallen in love with it!

Lovely welcoming western home......it was top notch!!!

This home definitely lived up to its wonderful ratings!! We had a family of eight that found it had everything you could want.....from the youngest to the oldest. It was 10-15 minutes from RMNP so that made our daily excursions and hikes easily accessible. We also enjoyed the "secret" back entrance to the park and had a pleasant evening hike so close to the home. Being a nature/animal loving family, we sure enjoyed all the owners personal photography throughout the home. It was nice to have so many areas that a larger family could still find either the larger family room or be able to have some quiet time either on the deck, hot tub, or just star gazing from all the wonderful panoramic views with the large windows. We visit Rocky almost every year......we hope to be able to come back. Thank you!

Heaven on Earth

Awestruck is our favorite place in the world! My husband and I have been twice and hope to make it back again soon. We found it by chance just searching for cabins to stay in and thought it looked beautiful on the website. However, in person the beauty far exceeded our expectations. There are no words to describe how stunning the view is and how comfy and gorgeous the home is. I guess "awestruck" really is the best description. The cabin has everything you could ever need and then some. David and Beth thought of everything! It really does feel like home but better. We can't wait to return!

Awesome Return Visit

My wife and I just completed our second stay at Awestruck and we have already booked an upcoming third visit. The home is clean, well appointed and the location is just perfect. Privacy, but just a very short drive to the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park or to downtown Estes Park. The view from every room is incredible. An unobstructed window into the mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park.

AWESTRUCK at Windcliff

We had the best vacation of our lives in the Rockies and much of that thrill came from our stay at Awestruck in Windcliff vacation rentals. Words are hard to find that can do Windcliff, and specifically Awestruck, justice. Nine hours after we arrived at our Connecticut home after staying here for six nights, we booked 10 days for September 2018.

Awestruck was Awesome!

Amazing house! These wonderful people have decorated like they live there. Everything we needed to cook and hang out was there and available. And they even checked on us several times! Great views, great location. Hot Tub. Heated floors. Even down to having cords sitting around for all of our devices. Totally enjoyed our Easter weekend with our family and grandson in this very comfortable home. And I would definitely stay there again!

We were Awestruck at Awestruck 

This is one of the finest and completely equipped house we have stayed at when using a vacation home rental service. From the welcome call from the owner, to the shop vac in the garage to vacuum the dirt out of your car from your shoes from hiking RMNP to personal device charging stations throughout the house, it was perfect. You have to get used to the switchbacks on the road going up the mountain but once you get there, it's simply unbeatable. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to stay at a luxury home in Estes Park. Thanks Dave and Beth!!

House is Amazing:  Owners are Super = Awestruck 

I think this is our 6th visit to Awestruck. That alone should tell all, as we keep coming back!!!! The views are outstanding; the house is stunning and well appointed. The owners make sure your visit is nothing but spectacular. We already made our reservation for next year to celebrate our 25th Anniversary in the place we consider to be like "home away from home" for us. You won’t be disappointed to reserve this beautiful home, it will leave you Awestruck!!

What a relaxing, enjoyable, and "awesome" vacation home!

I was part of a group who stayed at Awestruck over a weekend. It snowed all day Saturday which was perfect! We lit the awesome fireplace, played games, and just relaxed. While there were TVs available, we only turned one on to watch one of the many movies at Awestruck. We brought food to prepare during the weekend but didn't need any of the preparation items we brought because EVERYTHING was already there! I look forward to visiting again - with or without snow!

Another Amazing Stay!

We had another amazing stay at Awestruck! The mountain views, the wildlife, and oh yeah THE HOME. Such a beautiful, immaculately kept vacation dream home. Everything you could ever want and more. This is truly a gem in Windcliff! Please excuse my feet in the pic. It does capture the moment.

We had such a wonderful experience at Awestruck!! The views were amazing; the house was beautifully put together. We enjoyed every moment and the best part was as we were ready to go a deer was at the door waiting to see us off.

Awestruck is AMAZING!

Booking this home through Windcliff Properties was extremely easy. The management was very friendly and accommodating. Our stay at Estes Park was unbeatable and was exactly how our family dreamed it would be thanks to this beautiful property and the owner David. When we first got to Estes Park and drove up the snowy roads of Windcliff Estates it was truly a Winter Wonderland. We saw many deer and elk wandering on the white roads which was an incomparable experience. When we arrived at Awestruck and opened the garage there was a huge banner that welcomed us to the home "Welcome to Awestruck". When we entered the spacious and cozy home we scoped out the rooms which were all perfectly decorated with a cabin-feel and our kids were squealing with excitement. They fell in love with the loft upstairs. What made this house very user-friendly and comfortable was that the owners stocked the home as if they were living in it. All the amenities were included such as cookware, cleaning, cd's, dvds, board games, books, firewood, first aid kit, laundry products.... you name it, it was available for us. Which made our stay feel very comfortable and "like home." The living room's view was straight out of a postcard with wide windows to gaze upon the Rocky Mountains and the snow-covered trees and hills. The master bedroom also had a beautiful view with a jet tub and heated floors. OH MY. Every morning, downstairs by the back door, we were greeted by a bevy of deer and their buck. These are wild deer, and they would come up to us to see if we had any treats for them. It was the coolest and closest experience my family had encountering a wildlife animal. The house is in close proximity to local gift shops, restaurants, ice fishing, ice skating, trails, lakes, and even the Stanley Hotel. It is in the perfect location. We love this home and we will definitely be making this an annual trip for our family. Thank you David for our magical Christmas vacation. :)

Awestruck is AMAZING!

Everything from the atmosphere, to the amount of rooms, to the best location was exactly what we wanted for our family of 8 at Awestruck during Thanksgiving. The house was extremely comfortable for such a large number of people, there were ample blankets to handle the cold, and incredible views. If willing to brave the cold for a few seconds, there is a beautiful Jacuzzi that faces out onto a stunning view. There are easy to follow instructions on all of the electronics, dazzling photographs in every room of the house, and comfortable furniture. We had plans to head out to Boulder, but the entirety of the trip it was a battle to decide to leave the house. We cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal in the well-made kitchen and did not have a single issue the entire time. It was really a fantastic vacation in a large part thanks to Awestruck.

Stunning views and beautiful home

This house is completely over the top, everything about it is top notch. We were very impressed with the quality of the house the furnishings. Words cannot describe the beautiful and breathtaking views from this house. During our stay it was extremely cold (-15) and snowy but we stayed warm and cozy in the house. The wildlife around the house keep us amused on the snowy days. We have stayed in a lot of rental properties and none have even came close to being as nice as Awestruck. The amenities included with this house are unlike anything we have previously experienced. The owner, David, called us to make sure everything was up to our satisfaction and he seemed to be a genuinely great person. You will enjoy his wildlife photographs throughout the house. The staff at Windcliff were very helpful and did a good job of keeping the roads plowed during the snow. No matter what walk of life you come from this is a five star home. Thank you David and Beth for sharing your lovely home with us.

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!!

Exactly as advertised

Awestruck is a great vacation home located less than 6 miles from Rocky Mountain National Park and only a short drive to downtown Estes Park. The check-in process with the Windcliff property management team was efficient, cordial and friendly. Upon arrival at the house, the owner called to welcome us and offered great tips on places to photograph landscapes and wildlife inside the park. The house was clean and has quality furniture throughout. We were impressed by the attention to detail. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare a special meal or you can drive just a couple miles to the Dunraven Inn for a great dinner. We are already planning our next visit to Awestruck.

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...

Perfection

This is our second stay at Awestruck and again it was a 5 star stay. My husband booked the home for 10 days to celebrate my 40th birthday. I was with my family for a week, then had several friends join me for the weekend. I couldn't think of anyplace I'd rather be. It doesn't just have the comforts of your own home, but honestly, the luxuries of which you might not even have in your own home. We took full advantage of all it had to offer. Too numerous to list, suffice it to say EVERYTHING you need is there. Also of note, Windcliff is efficient to check in with and made that process quick and easy. David, the owner, called us personally and told us several secret trails you can only have access to from Windcliff (they are also detailed in a binder in the kitchen). We hiked on the 4th of July, arguably the busiest day in Estes Park, from our driveway to the top of Teddy's Teeth. With two kids (who were tired) this steep, but fairly short hike only took an hour and 20 minutes and we had beautiful views all to ourselves. We saw not a soul. It was wonderful! We made wonderful memories and, of course, will be back. We love RMNP and Estes Park, but being in the Windcliff neighborhood is great. We enjoyed nightly walks in the neighborhood and even walked into a private entrance into RMNP just down the street from Awestruck. Thank you, David for sharing your comfortable, beautiful, and welcoming mountain home with us!

Great, quite place for family vacation

The property was very nice and a great value for 6 or more for the luxury accommodations. The owners have really taken care to have everything you need. The only problem I had is them telling me that I broke the board in the top of a couch and they would claim it on the insurance they took out. This bugs me because I don't have any boys there at all and it takes quite a bit of force to break that. Look if I broke it then I would tell you that but to send me an email after I'm home telling me this really put a bad feeling on my view of the whole stay. I know they said it would not go against me on the insurance but it is the principal behind it. Other than that the property is great. Walk the whole property when you get there to inspect. I know I will from now on.

SPECTACULAR!

We have stayed in multiple home vacation rentals and Awestruck is by far the best yet. You can definitely tell the owners consider this their home and not just an investment, and they take great pride in ensuring you feel it is your home as well. The personal phone call from the owner was a first for us and meant a great deal - it shows he really cares. The home is very well appointed and everything works very well. The rooms were all well decorated and everything is sparkling clean. The very fast WiFi and X-Box were a bonus for our son, allowing my husband and I some peace and quiet. Now for the view - absolutely spectacular! The colorful sunsets were a bonus, as were the elk, deer, and other animals who frequented our yard. We can't say enough good things about this property. It was a great place for us to spend our 18th anniversary and we look forward to coming back again.

Breathtakingly Beautiful

We have stayed at Awestruck four times now. That should tell you how much we love the house. It is what you image the ultimate mountain home should look like. The house has everything you will need to make your stay fantastic. All you need is food. From the art and pictures scattered all over the house, this house is so beautiful. The view of the mountains is awesome also. We plan on staying there many many more times. It's like our second home.

Amazing

We had a great experience in this house!! We had 4 adults and 3 young children and there was definitely room to spare. The views were amazing, every amenity was there and in great shape. The Windcliff property office was very helpful right from the start. Absolutely would stay there again.

As a side note, if the owners are reading this, we all loved the photographs in the house, beautiful work!!

Exceeded Expectations

and my expectations were high. I discovered Awestruck on Facebook when David Bates, owner, posted a breathtaking photo on an Estes Park page. Ever since, I'd followed Awestruck and wanted to stay there. It took us a few years to finally stay. Awestruck's website does an excellent job of showing the home with pictures and lists of amenities, etc. So I knew it was going to be amazing. It was even better than amazing. Every single detail is what you'd want in your own home. The kind of extras the David & Beth put into this home, are not in any other rental homes -- even the nice ones. Because, who wants renters destroying their things? Well, when you rent at Awestruck, you treat everything with care, because it feels like you are home. I think David & Beth are smart enough to have had that foresight. Everything from top of the line furnishings, appliances, Xbox, huge DVD collection way better than Netflix (Introduced my kids to Karate Kid - haha). We spent more time in the house than we have in any house in Estes Park. We normally are out much more. We could have done NOTHING but enjoy this home. We will be back in July. Thank you, David and Beth for sharing your home!

Awestruck is Phenomenal

Our visit to Awestruck was outstanding. It was immediately obvious that the cabin was not built as a rental property but rather as a first-rate residence. Everything was top-notch, right down to the appliances. Furnishings are ample, plush and with a mountain motif. The walls are decorated with unbelievable wildlife photography. The cabin is spacious with unparalleled views. Every convenience has been considered and supplied. We will definitely go back.

"Phenomenal Home & Perfect Location & All the Amenities = Awestruck"

WOW! Hands down the best vacation home we have ever rented and will ever rent. Awestruck has every amenity you can think of (Shampoo, Soap, Xbox, Paperclips, Aspirin band aids, etc.). This home is beautiful, clean, comfortable and you never want leave. The views are like out of a Movie. The Wildlife that came around the property was as if It was cued in every day. My wife and I woke up to Deer walking by our bedroom window. The Staff at Windcliff were great and made checking in a breeze. The Owner David called when we arrived to make sure everything was great. Awestruck is a perfect home for families or couples looking to get away and stay in a perfect Colorado dream home. We will never forget this vacation home and hope to make it back again. Thank you for sharing your dream home with us.

The reviews are accurate, this place is amazing. One of the best rentals we have ever experienced. The views are incredible, the home is outfitted with everything you could need, and the furnishings are comfortable. Wildlife abounds in this convenient location. Stay here and you will not be disappointed.

"Awestruck proved to be a Jaw-dropping excellent vacation!"

We have stayed in many 5 star vacation homes across the United States and must say that Awestruck topped the chart ! It had beautiful mountain views, amazing wildlife photography throughout the house, a well-stocked kitchen, state of the art Jacuzzi , extra large hot tub, washing machine with detergent, fireplace with ample firewood, a welcome call when we arrived along with unique mountain decor in each room. On our last day at Awestruck, it snowed ! Several deer stepped in the driveway, and we found ourselves in a true winter wonderland. The drive up the mountain to the home in October may require an all-wheel drive. We were glad to have the extra help as it is a steep climb. The view is totally worth the effort!

"Simply Amazing... Again"

My husband and I returned to Awestruck this year for our first wedding anniversary and just didn't want to leave. David and Beth definitely know the right recipe for treating those bogged down by life, from immaculate hot tubs to Jacuzzi baths, life's stresses were quickly sloughed off and we were able to enjoy the trip to the fullest. A warm welcoming gift and just having the house ready for us just made the experience so much more. We will definitely be returning next year!

"Absolutely perfect honeymoon spot!!"

My husband and I stayed at Awestruck for our honeymoon and it was just perfect! The house was clean, beautifully decorated and absolutely gorgeous! As soon as we arrived it felt like home! The house was stocked with all of the necessities and we had everything we needed when we arrived. We spent a lot of our time out on the deck taking in the amazing views, enjoyed the hot tub and loved the wood burning fireplace in the great room. Just a couple miles outside of downtown Estes Park, it doesn't get any better than this home! I'd highly recommend considering Awestruck for your next trip-it's somewhere we hope to return to in the future! I'm so glad we chose to stay Awestruck for our trip to Estes Park, it was perfect!!

Awestruck ... the name says it all!

This is our 3rd stay at a Windcliff property and each time the bar gets raised higher and higher. I think we have finally hit the ceiling, as Awestruck is everything you could have ever dreamed of. Immaculate, stunning property with such amazing views from all of the rooms. The home is filled with amazing photos of wildlife, all taken by the owner. Everything is top notch and the master bedroom has a walk-in closet that could be a room by itself! Estes Park is near and dear to our hearts and we hope to be able to return to Awestruck real soon. It is beyond a home away from home. Thanks to David and his family for such a wonderful experience.

What a View

Luxury abounds in this spacious place.  Our family of five came for Spring Break and we spread way out in the entire house. Really enjoyed the kitchen set up. The location was great for day trips to Rocky Mountain National Park and the visitors center.

Amazing!

This house exceeded our expectations! It is absolutely gorgeous with amazing views. The house is very cozy...and welcoming. It doesn't feel like a rental. The house is immaculate! Top notch decor. The bedding was very comfortable. The floor warmers in the bathroom are a nice touch. The hot tub was huge...very relaxing.The owners have it set up with everything you could ever need. Get some groceries and your set. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back!

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!

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.

Awestruck is an awesome place to stay!

Second time we've stayed at Awestruck. Even better than the first. It is exactly what I would want in a mountain home. Comfortable with awe inspiring views of the mountains. We will stay there again. Feels like home away from home.

Heaven on Earth

This was our third stay at Awestruck and once again this fabulous vacation home did not disappoint. Every arrival has found the house in immaculate condition thanks to the owners, David and Beth, who go above and beyond to make sure that your vacation is perfect down to the most minute detail. The house is well appointed, all you need is a quick trip to the local grocery that is very near and you are set for the week! We hiked right from the front door of Awestruck, an incredible trail, very quiet and peaceful. The plentiful aspens in the area were brilliant yellow and orange, sooo beautiful! We very much enjoyed RMNP and the wonderful trails, summiting Hallet Peak, hiking to Andrew's Glacier and Sky Pond were hikes of a lifetime! The weather was spectacular most days and the few days it drizzled gave us time to recharge and enjoy the magnificent home! The hot tub is HUGE and the view doesn't get any better! What's better than sitting in a hot tub that looks out over the mountain you just summited???? The elk were putting on a great show bugling and chasing cows, we were lucky enough to see a group of nine bighorn rams with massive curls on Trail Ridge Road, what an experience! We love this place and truly to us this is Heaven on Earth!

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!

Unforgettable stay in mountain home with views that left us speechless.

 We had already read many of the reviews and had viewed pictures of Awestruck before our trip, and we knew we were in for a stay at a home that was extra-special. But none of the pictures or reviews did it complete justice. This home must be seen and stayed at to be believed. From the moment we walked in the garage and headed up the stairs to the great room, we were in awe of the tremendous views of Rocky Mountain National Park. We went from room to room and were literally blown away by the beauty of this home and attention to detail that the owners have put into it, even down to the many framed pictures of wildlife they had taken, the kitchen with everything we needed, and the wonderful bedding in every room. Having David call us the 2nd day of our stay was an extra nice touch, and it was great to talk to the owner personally.


We have been to Estes Park many times and stayed in other inns along Hwy 34 and Hwy 36, but this time, traveling with our 2 college-age kids, we wanted to do something extra and have plenty of space to spread out, as well as enjoy nature and God's creation. After perusing the Windcliff web site we quickly decided on Awestruck. 


We loved every minute staying at this house, from having morning coffee on the deck of the home and watching the sunrise and create the alpenglow on the mountains, to grilling on the deck off the kitchen, and staying out late to watch the millions of stars at night.


We are already planning our return trip to Awestruck. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect !!!!!!!!

 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!!!!

Fantastic Vacation Home

What an awesome place! My husband and I have vacationed at Awestruck at various times of the year and all have been wonderful! In May, we found the house immaculate as usual and the weather was wonderfully mild. The winter trails in RMNP did not disappoint and the park was filled with elk, deer, bighorn sheep and even the occasional moose! David and Beth make sure that you feel right at home by providing all of the amenities you would find in your own home for preparing meals and a handy guide that instructs you through all aspects of your stay - even hiking trail suggestions and tips. The hot tub is exceptional and gets you prepared for another day of hiking in the park - the view from the hot tub is outstanding and we were joined by a mule deer one evening while serenaded by the gobbling Tom turkeys! Awestruck is by far our favorite vacation spot, EVER! It feels more like home each time we visit! Can't wait until we return, the countdown has started!!!

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.

Best of the best, quite simply AMAZING!

This was our second stay at Awestruck and we will continue to return year after year. No other vacation rentals that we have stayed in at Estes Park compares to this home . The owner's commitment to make your stay a memorable one does not fall short in any way. I could go on and on and repeat all the wonderful things people have to say about this home and the natural beauty that surrounds you during your stay but I won't. It is all true and if you haven't already booked this beautiful home, what are you waiting for! I just wished we lived 10 hours closer, we would be staying more than once a year!

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 home in the states, islands and Mexico...this ranked with the best!!

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 tvs, blu-rays, x-box, all  your essential cooking needs, very up-to-date appliances, a huge grill, a hot tub Jacuzzi, fire places, garage, washer, dryer and two king size beds, a huge master bathroom and amazing views!!  My wife and I were extremely sad to leave, but we know for sure that we will be back!  If you are looking for a luxurious vacation home near Rocky Mountain National Park for a good price, Awestruck is the place!

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 door.   Then every evening and morning they came.   I would refer everyone to stay here it was awesome!

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 us 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!!!

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 ran either.  David even called to ask whether we needed any recommendations for indoor activities when he saw we were getting rain.  It mean 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 and 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 was the perfect place to enjoy the wonder and beauty of Colorado.

Very nice home.  A fully stocked kitchen with new appliances.  Good location close to RMNP entrance and close to town.  New gas grill, 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 the 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!!

Truly an escape into relaxation

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 Park, 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 Rocky Mountain 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 day camp 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 Hotel. 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.

Perfect 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.

Wonderful Home

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.

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 surprised 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 amenities and beauty of awestruck and the Nat'l Park.

An absolutely 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!

Completely Awestruck

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 the creature comforts you could ask for in a home.

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.

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 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.  Than you for opening your home to us!

A beautiful vacation home that lives up to the great reviews

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 Adviser 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.

Absolutely Amazing

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!

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.

Breathtaking views, beautiful property, you won't need for anything

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!!

Exceeded Expectations

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, dining 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!

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!!

Awestruck offered us luxury and comfort in our very favorite place

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!

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, chipmunks, humming birds, many other birds.

The Best 

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.

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. :)

Awestruck in an understatment

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 unbelievable views.  Best beds we have ever slept on and by far the best place we have every stayed.  Next time, we're bringing guests!  I'm still speechless.  The pics don't even do justice to it.  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.

Absolutlely amazing property and mountain views...just outstanding

We planned a trip to "Awestruck" to surprise 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 Eaglecliff 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 can’t wait to come back!!!

The 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 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 the 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 to this home for next year!

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 equipped 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 surprised 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.

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 everything you would need for a stay. Area very quite and you have almost a daily visit of wildlife. David 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 a lot 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 guests. 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 definitely 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 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 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!

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.

Fantastic Home

This was our seventh September at Windcliff and the fifth home we have stayed in. It is a wonderful home with great 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 feel as though we were true guests as opposed to mere renters. This is a truly lovely and welcoming house that we hope to occupy for many September visits to come. If I were ever to use superlatives to describe a place (which I do not as rule) this would surely be the exception as per the title of this review.

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!

Loved it!

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 magnificant 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 breathtaking. Perfect weather. The homeowner 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 would 100% recommend this property, as well as Windcliff, to friends or family...with no hesitation whatsoever!!

Best Vacation Home We 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 pack-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 delivering our highchairs. We appreciated their promptness. Their 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 enjoying 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 imagine anyone not falling in love with it. We have been to Estes Park many times and I can't even imagine 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 a lot 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!  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.

We were "Awestuck" by Awestruck - Beautiful, Warm and 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 replace if you drink. The decor in the home is beautiful; wildlife 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 seriously they take making their guests happy. David even called us to welcome us, ensure everything was in working order, and give us tidbits 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.

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 a 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 tvs, 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 snowshoeing and hiking through the forests and around the lakes.  Highly recommended.

Our Trip and Stay was Awestruck in Every Way

Our family was "Awestruck” 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, its decor 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.

Phenomenal

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 tub, 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 won't be available the next time we plan at trip to the mountains!

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.

Absolutely Awestruck

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.

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.

When decorating and remodeling Awestruck, we worked with a professional designer and local artisans to create a luxurious and extremely comfortable mountainside vacation home that would be the perfect Estes Park lodging destination.  Fortunately, our guests agree that Estes Park, Colorado is a great place to visit, that Windcliff is a beautiful community, that Rocky Mountain National Park is spectacular and that Awestruck is a very special vacation home rental.

You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
