About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

“Doiron” is a warm and welcoming duplex vacation home situated at the heart of prestigious Windcliff Estates. It perches upon a spacious and secluded lot bordered by green space and sheltered by towering trees. The vestibule’s walls are adorned with artistic renditions inscribed on barn wood. Entering the Doiron residence immediately reveals its reason for existing. A wall of western windows displays one of the most dramatic mountain vistas imaginable.

Jagged mountain peaks rise up before you to kiss the sky. These are the mountains of the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. They are crowned with year-‘round snow and America’s western Continental Divide. Venture out onto the western deck where the freshness of the mountain air defies description. Tables and chairs abound. But, the most-intriguing piece of furniture here is the double side-by-side platform rocker swaying even now in the gentle breeze.

The great room at Doiron presents itself as an ideal haven for all of the “at home” moments of your vacation and the perfect base camp from which to launch an infinite variety of outdoor adventures in the National Park and its surroundings. (A stash of tall walking sticks stands in the corner --- ready when you are.) A moss rock, wood-burning fireplace invites hours of relaxation and contemplation in the leather furnishings arrayed before it. Rare samples of merchantile-store furnishings adorn the room. A primitive art rendition of early natives confronting a herd of elk is handsomely etched on the surface of the coffee table.

A friendly on-lookers’ bar delineates the creative space harbored in the kitchen at Doiron. A glass-top range awaits the first “short order” of the day --- or the opportunity to share in the preparation of the heartiest holiday meal you can envision. This tray-ceilinged kitchen is wondrously bright and affords a view south towards the Wind River Pass. Brew a cup of Keurig “100% Arabica Donut Shop Blend” from the selection at hand and head for the western deck. It is the appointed hour for the rising sun to dapple the mountain peaks. Doiron’s dining table is situated near the western windows so that the unobstructed view of the National Park is a guest at every meal. A sculpture of an adventurous bear steering a large, provision-laden canoe and his compliment of cubs down the middle of the table provides smiles at every meal! A magnificent antler chandelier with renderings of Colorado elk etched in glass hangs overhead. (And, incidentally, isn’t that a live bull elk and his harem grazing past Doiron even as we speak?)

Doiron affords you three bedrooms --- a master suite on the main level and two more on the level below. Doiron’s master suite is situated such that you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains. The entire residence is a veritable gallery of fine art prints. Rick Kelley’s masterpiece portrayal of a wolf entitled “The Shadow Hunter” dominates the staircase as you descend to the lower level. The wolf’s stately stance and steely gaze enhance your perception of your wilderness surroundings every time you pass. It is downstairs that you will find two more bedrooms, a home theater, and a magnificent Jacuzzi soaking tub set against the western-view windows. Outside is a ground-level patio where a gas grill awaits your creative culinary pleasure.

“Pleasure” is, indeed, what visitors have found at Doiron as their inscriptions in the Guest Book attest:

• “…..listening to the bull elks’ call and falling asleep looking up at the stars out the master bedroom window --- what wonderful memories!”

• “Waking up with the view of the mountains is breathtaking.”

• “We’ve come all the way from Madrid, Spain, to enjoy these beautiful mountains, the spectacular views, and all the wonderful animals --- especially the deer that come into the yard to feed.”

• “…….loved the turkeys and the hummingbirds!”

• “Our favorite moments were most definitely spent watching the sunsets from the swing on the deck.”

• “We laughed, cried, prayed, ate, drank, read, hot-tubbed (new verb!), played cards, --- and even went horseback riding during a snowfall.”

• “Thanks to your beautiful home, this was the most incredible and unforgettable vacation we have ever taken.”

• “The meteor shower, the mountain lion, the hummingbirds --- magnificent!”

• “Our kids loved ‘unplugging’ and getting back to family basics.”

• “The beauty of this area, the view, and the people who call it ‘home’ have taken us in, seduced us, and left us forever in need of yet another ‘Doiron fix.’”

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

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the Doiron! Gorgeous mountain views, all the comforts of home. There have been a few updates to bedding and furniture since the online photos were taken. It is not super high-end, but had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Driveway is a bit tricky; either a long backwards drive down or back up. Windcliff office staff very helpful. We will definitely be back.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

This is a very comfortable place. The interior is a bit dated but everything was in good shape and perfect working order. It's high on the mountain with amazing unobstructed views of the front range. There appears to be a natural undeveloped buffer zone below the property so there is no house in view below it. We saw Elk, Coyote and Mule Deer while sitting out on the balcony. If you are looking for a super high end place this probably isn't for you but if you just want a clean comfortable place to relax while enjoying RMNP and Estes Park, we thought the value was excellent.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place. Felt like being at home in the mountains. Very comfortable and casual with unbelievable unobstructed views of the front range. Great location 10 Min to RMNP and Downtown Estes Park but on this mountainside you get none of the traffic or noise except for the occasional Coyote call or Elk bugle. Will definitely be back here.
