About the Property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Welcome to “Mapes!” A woodpecker door knocker tends the front door. A carved wooden bear stands tall offering “bear hugs” for a nickel. This is going to be a fun and friendly place! In the midst of the remarkable collection of mountain homes comprising prestigious Windcliff Estates, the Mapes family has created a masterpiece. The residence is perfectly situated to enjoy a commanding view of the rocky fortresses comprising the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is exhilaratingly modern and fresh. Enter from the welcoming and embracing foyer to a living area designed as a meeting place for you and the mountains. A peaked wall of western windows frames forests and mountains like gallery masterpieces. Rich lodge-style leather seating huddles near the remotely-controlled gas fireplace awaiting your pleasure. A wall of reclaimed wood and southwestern artifacts lend unique character to your surroundings.

The chef’s kitchen at “Mapes” is a dream come true. It features space --- and more space! What seems like an acre of dark granite is the perfect playing field for culinary experimentation. Stacked ovens, an induction range, a microwave drawer, and two dishwashers (you were planning a banquet, weren’t you?) are ready to elevate your mountain vacation meals to feasts. Try the “Asparagus Soup with Poached Eggs and Crispy Proscuito” in Kate McMillan’s cook book in the cupboard --- or dine on Yotam Ottolenghi’s “Lamb Rib Chops with Walnut, Fig, and Goat Cheese Salad.” For dessert select an offering from Susan Purdy’s “Pie in the Sky” cookbook. Her recipes are classics when it comes to mastering the art of baking at high altitude. The Mapes have provided every tool and utensil that you could possibly need. Your imagination is the only missing ingredient. Set the view-laden dining room table with “Moose Country” china by Tienshang, classic stem ware, and conversation of your own making. Two handsome decks off the living and dining areas offer alternative locales for dining or just refreshing. A beautiful laundry room you will want to take home with you is situated near the kitchen.


The Mapes residence incorporates five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The master suite is privately situated one flight up with pillow positions aimed directly at the Continental Divide. A gas fireplace separates the sleeping chamber from the luxurious air-jet soaking tub with its mountain view. An immense, glass-enclosed shower is close at hand. Tiles, wood, metal, and distinctive lighting harmonize in tune with the panoramic vistas forever at hand. An ensuite queen bedroom replete with a wall-mounted TV and mirrored furnishings and a king suite constitute the main-level sleeping accommodations. Downstairs is a home theater and game room flanked by two more ensuite bedrooms --- one a bunkhouse room with three twins that is guaranteed to be a kids’ delight! Just outside on a sprawling patio stands a hot tub ready to soothe the aches of a long hike or a horseback trek in the National Park. The tub is perfectly positioned to enjoy one of the greatest views on earth.

Those who have been here before you would like you to know how much they enjoyed the experience:
• “This home is amazing with its great views. It was awesome to hear the elk bellowing at night.”
• “I finally found the kitchen of my dreams!”
• “Both the presence and the presentation of all of the amenities provided by the Windcliff management were amazing.”
• “This home made our stay ‘the best!’”
• “This place is perfect! Thank you for opening your home and your heart to others.”
• “…….many wonderful memories made here in this stunning setting!”
• “…….this house…..well, it is AWESOME!”
• “Fabulous home. You’ve thought of everything.”
• “The Windcliff management is wonderfully easy to work with.”
• “Such beautiful views of the snow-capped mountains. We so enjoyed watching the elk and the deer as they roamed past in the evenings. We had front-row seats out on the deck!”

Although Estes Park [Rocky Mountain National Park’s gateway community] is only 15 minutes distant by car, you will always feel securely tucked away at “Mapes” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Mapes” residence is a private residential community comprising 260 acres on the sunny western slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain. It is served by a single entrance to private roads with no through streets or heavy traffic. It is truly a world apart!
