Car: Recommended

Located within YMCA of the Rockies and neighbors Rocky Mountain National Park and minutes from town activities. Trails begin outside the door. Take a short hike along Wind River and watch beaver, stumble across deer eating beries from bushes or an elk or moose feeding. Aspen and giant spruce abound in this ever changing valley.

The YMCA facilities may be accessed by anyone who is a member of their local YMCA or a small daily fee can be paid. The "Y" offers programs for kids to entertain and educate them throughout the week. Horseback riding, mini golf, frisbee golf, indoor pool, library, tennis courts, craft shop and many other activities welcome you. Stop into the Administration building and ask for the weeks program to plan your visit.

A more extensive hike may be had following Wind River up to waterfalls, grassy meadows and the twinkling of the aspen trees. Lily lake can be accessed and set up a point to look over the town of Estes Park & Lake Estes.

Emerald mountain is steep but affords a great vantage point of where you are staying and the area around it. Going over or around it affords you greater access to some of the most popular destinations within Rocky Mountain National Park.

I suggest a drive on the Peak to Peak Highway, you can end up in Nederland or venture down to Boulder and visit the Pearl Street Mall. Along the way stop into Charlie Eagle Plumes Indian Store, Church on the Rock or the founder of RMNP, Enos Mills cabin.

Year Purchased: 1977

About: Our Family vacationed every year in Estes Park, staying at the YMCA of the Rockies. My Grandmother talked of going up the mountain in a Model T. Dad stumbled upon this property while exploring the area. Originally, the intention was to buy 7.5 acres, but a survey revealed that the cabin was set over the property line, thus purchased 11 more acres of the 18 acres the property currently rests on. The well water comes from a mountain spring that provides pure, delicious drinking.

Why Windcliff Estates (Estes Park, CO, USA):
As a place for families to gather, this place has special meaning to many of those who have stayed here. Wildlife abounds as they move up and down the nearby Wind River. Here Aspen, Spruce, Ponderosa, lodgepole pines and fauna change with the seasons, never looking quite like the same space each time you visit. Hike up the river to hidden mountain meadows, serene lakes and breathtaking views starting from the doorstep.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Many travelers take advantage of the YMCA of the Rockies many activities including swimming (indoor pool), horseshoes, craft center, tennis, miniature golf, zip lining, library, disc golf, talks around a fire, to name a few. visit for full details. You will feel as though you are in a secluded cabin, million miles from anywhere and yet have downtown Estes Park a mere 5 mile drive. This is set in and among natures finest with fresh clean air and water as natural as Nature intended.
