About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Welcome to the Estes Park vacation rental home the world knows as “Hyler Mountain Lodge.”

The lodge is currently finishing a complete renovation. As soon as renovations are complete, new pictures will follow! If you loved the former, “Kelley" home, you certainly won’t be disappointed.

This remarkable mountain residence stands proudly near the southern boundary of prestigious Windcliff Estates on the slopes of Ram’s Horn Mountain.

Hyler Mountain Lodge overlooks one of the most majestic mountain vistas imaginable. Spread before you in seemingly-unending array are the towering summits of the mountains comprising the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rockies in Rocky Mountain National Park. The Continental Divide is etched against the azure blue of the Colorado sky as it connects stalwart peaks proudly hailed as Hallett, Flattop, Stone’s Peak, Terra Tomah, Sundance, Chapin, Chiquita, and Ypsilon. Hyler Mountain Lodge is the perfect base camp from which to explore the 415 square miles of the National Park and its majestic offerings. Indeed, Windcliff’s private “trail entrance” to the Park is only a few hundred feet from the Hylers’ front door. Rocky Mountain National Park yearns to introduce you to its 359 miles of pristine trails, 150 placid lakes, and 450 miles of streams rumbling and stumbling through the gorges.

The living room at Hyler Mountain Lodge is oriented towards the mountains. Beneath the supporting beams of its high ceiling, a peaked window mimics the mountains it so proudly frames. Leather couches and swivel chairs allow for enjoying the company and view behind. A wood-burning fireplace peeks out from a wall of Colorado moss rock. Twin west-facing decks afford space to relax, grill some trout, or watch until the sun has surrendered the sky to the moon and the stars.

Hylers’ kitchen and bar is a brand new masterpiece composed of granite, rich wood, and tile. Every essential tool or vessel a chef could desire is provided and awaits an opportunity to assist with the culinary urges inspired by your surroundings. Set the great live edge dining table for up to 10 of your family and guests, with 4 more additional stools at the 10- foot island. Or, move your dining fare and family outside to the table on the deck. In either setting the million-dollar view of the Rocky Mountains is the perfect cherry on top.

The master bedroom at Hyler Mountain Lodge features a king bed with a gas fireplace, and its own private access to the separate deck with superb views into the surrounding mountains. The stunning ensuite bathroom has a brand-new shower and free-standing soaking tub seemingly set amidst the forest that adjoins the retreat. Deer and elk are frequent visitors.

Downstairs are four more bedrooms offering 4 bedrooms: 1 king bedroom, 1 queen bedroom, 1 full bedroom with twin bunk above and 1 twin bunk bedroom surrounding a “great room” that truly is. There’s a wet bar, home theater, a library, games, and a 12-foot shuffleboard table. And, just when everything already seems perfect, you discover the new hot tub perched on the deck just outside. You would love to stay immersed in conversation and the tub’s soothing waters forever, but even that wouldn’t be long enough to count all of the stars that the heavens over Colorado unveil.

Rocky Mountain National Park does not offer overnight accommodations. They say, “We’re sorry, the Park doesn’t have a lodge.” Actually, that’s O.K., because there’s one right next door! Many they are who have experienced the lodge we call “Hyler Mountain Lodge,” and their words ring with their wonder at it all:

• “Deer grazed in the yard at dusk and the stars in full array were an added bonus. ‘Twas the icing on the cake of a wonderful week in Estes Park.”

• “This home met and exceeded our every wish for a vacation home in the Rockies. The hot tub, sauna, and pool table provided entertainment when we weren’t sitting in front of the fire enjoying the fabulous views.”

• “Awesome views! Hylers’ Mountain Lodge gets an eleven out of ten from us! A very memorable spring break for my whole family.”

• “Absolutely beautiful views within a few yards of a walking trail leading into Rocky Mountain National Park.”

• “…..a great setting to enjoy the beauty of God’s Creation!”

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 “Hyler Mountain Lodge” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing “Hyler Mountain Lodge” 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!

Base Rates vary by season. All pricing is for 2 persons, each additional person is $25 per person per night over the Base Rate. Minimum Night Stays: vary by season.

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 “Cedar Upper” — separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Cedar Upper” 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!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

This place is stunning. The views are amazing. The house was clean and had a fully stocked kitchen. Anything you needed was already there. Lots of precut wood in the garage for the fireplace in the living room. The hot tub was great. Fun to play pool in the basement. A nice BBQ grill on the deck. Plenty of space! There were sleeping spots for about 9 people. The town is not too far off if you wanted to go grab food, but why would you ever want to leave this house! We didn't. We went for several walks down the road and soaked up the wonderful mountain views. The garage has 2 parking spots and there is room in the driveway for more cars. The house has a music system that plays throughout the entire house. Steamed shower. Jetted bath tub. Sauna. The living room furniture was not comfortable for sitting long term (we tried to watch a movie with only 3 people in the room and we were not able to spread out comfortably). That would be the only complaint. Will definitely be going again!
