Kintzle Legacy Family Home at Windcliff w/Panoramic RMNP Views!

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

Windcliff is an amazing residential enclave straddling 260 acres of pristine Colorado real estate adjoining Rocky Mountain National Park. Five miles of roads wind amongst its characterful collection of mountain-view homes. And, perfectly situated among them is the Kintzle residence. You would be hard-pressed to pick a more perfect site upon which to live out your mountain dreams. And, Kintzle is all set and primed to welcome you for a vacation stay you will never forget.

The Kintzle family home is a Windcliff Legacy Home with decks on three sides --- and mountains on four!

Step out onto the western deck and the sheer mass of the wall of mountains spread out before you is staggering - you may want to grab a handrail! This is the majestic “Front Range” of the Rocky Mountains that anchors Rocky Mountain National Park --- all 425 square miles of it! You likely noticed on your initial tour of admiration around Kintzle that its walls feature the mountain photography of Lew Dakan, an esteemed Colorado master of the photographic arts. You can relate his photos now to the expansive vistas spread before you. There stand Hallett Peak and Otis Peak admiring their handsome reflections in the waters of Bear Lake. Over yonder are mountains named Chiquita, Chapin, and Ypsilon enticing you to venture into the Mummy Range. And, these are but a sampling of the 72 named peaks that tower above 12,000 feet in Rocky Mountain National Park, and behind whose summits the sun will stage its daily spectacle when the hour of sunset arrives. Just east of you at Kintzle are the ramparts of Ram’s Horn Mountain. The band of white granite teeth grinning from one prominent rock face is affectionately referred to as “Teddy’s Teeth” --- a reverent tip of the hat to Teddy Roosevelt. Theodore Roosevelt was a “mountain man” if ever there was one! Below you lies the vale of Aspen Brook carrying water from the famed Wind River Pass that rises at the southern extremity of your view.

The Kintzle family affords you every necessary amenity while you tarry in their home. The upper level offers gracious living space with seating clustered ‘round the fireplace. The kitchen is well-appointed and well-equipped for your forays into mountain cuisine. Likely about one-millionth of one percent of the dining tables upon this earth can boast the spectacular panoramic view that enthralls you at every meal when you settle down to dine at Kintzle. And, the deer grazing for its dinner just outside the windows lend the wonderfully-surreal sense that each of you can be equally “at home” in this place. Three fine bedroom suites upstairs and a TV lounge and bedroom downstairs will keep you well rested for all that these magnificent environs have to offer. There are water colors, fine prints, and photographs throughout. But, the best images of all are not hanging on the wall. They are waiting for you and your camera just outside on the deck --- or along the trails you can now envision in the National Park.

Another remarkable image at Kintzle also bears mentioning. A limited-edition print by Lori Salisbury is a focal feature of the living room. It hangs in that singular place of honor over the fireplace. A coyote cub sits astride a snow-strewn landscape. A full moon hangs in the heavens. The cub’s head is tilted skyward in the classic posture of a howl and you can see his breath against the moonlit sky and hear his plaintive song in your soul. It is entitled, “First Solo.” If the moon is full during the course of your stay and you find yourself out on the deck, the urge to howl may be irresistible! Welcome to the Rocky Mountains. Enjoy your stay at Kintzle. Others certainly have. You can hear it in their comments…….

“I couldn’t have asked for a better time and stay with my family.”

“Kintzle was amazing, spotless, and comfortable --- and afforded us panoramic views of the mountains.”

“…….fabulous views of the whole range…..especially at sunset.”

“Kintzle was great…..great wrap-around decks with magnificent mountain views.”

“The Windcliff staff was professional, courteous, and helpful from start to finish.”

“The perfect house for our vacation.”

“…….wall-to-wall windows…….”

“We all settled in to read by the fire every night.”

“We loved all the little things about ‘home’ that it offered --- the space, the location, and the gorgeous views. We would highly recommend this house to anyone.”

“Phenomenal time in a stunning location.”

“What a holiday Kintzle made! It was so beautiful it brought me to tears.”

A SPECIAL CONSIDERATION: 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 “Kintzle” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Kintzle” 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!

Beautiful vistas!

  • 5 of 5

Kintzle home was a nice, clean and comfortable home on the side of the mountain with beautiful vistas. We were 8 and fit very well. And we were minutes away from RMNP and downtown Estes Park. The Windcliff staff was very helpful too, making it a great vacation. We will be back!

Kintzle House at Estes Park, CO

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Kintzle Windcliff for three wonderful nights. Only wish we could have stayed longer. None of the photo's were misleading and everything was exactly as pictured, including the view. There might be homes further up the mountain, but none have a better view of the Rockies. Plus, it's a very short drive with a short couple switchbacks off the main road, up to the house. The home was ready to unpack and live in. The Kitchen was complete with all the cooking tools anyone would need to cook up a great meal, which we did for breakfast in the morning and dinner in the evening. The park entrance is right near by, so it was just a quick drive to some of the nicest hiking trails to be found anywhere. The house's four bedrooms with 2-Kings, 1 Queen, and 4th downstairs bedroom with two singles where more than we needed for a couple, one adult and two kids. the three bathrooms meant no waiting, or lines in the morning. There were plenty of towels and even a washer and dryer if needed. I could have even left the wine opener at home, as the kitchen tools were everything you would expect at your own home. They even provided shampoo and conditioner, as you would expect at a hotel. It was great to be able to spend quality time with the whole family while fixing and eating a meal together. We could not have been happier with our stay in the Kintzle property. Though not a new home, it is very well maintained. Never needed air conditioning as the evenings do cool down quickly at night, and there was always a light breeze, so we just opened a couple of the screened windows. We would stay here again and would recommend staying here to our friends.
