About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Cedar Lower is “Life at the Top” at its very best. Cedar Upper shares the honor with its duplex partner of being the highest residence at prestigious Windcliff Estates. While searching for superlatives worthy of this magnificent home, “Eagle’s Aerie” comes to mind. Clinging to the rocky precipices of Ram’s Horn Mountain, Cedar Lower breathes rarified air at 9,000 feet above sea level. But, the jagged crown of Long’s Peak directly in its line of view rises a mile higher still to top out against the blue of the Colorado sky at 14,255 feet. You come to Windcliff and to Cedar Lower to find a lofty vantage point from which to admire the Rocky Mountains majestically interlocked in a chain to form the Continental Divide. Together these mountains tower proudly as the backbone of Rocky Mountain National Park. It is without question that Cedar Lower occupies one of the most singularly-spectacular home sights in all the world.

Come inside. The scale is grand. “Glass” is the key word for the western wall that gazes towards the mountains. Cedar Lower’s classy kitchen boasts that million-dollar view and challenges the “mountain chef” in every visitor. While singular and inspiring restaurants abound in the nearby visitor hub of Estes Park, the urge to stay grounded at Cedar Lower is overwhelming. Here “at home on the range” you can chip and chop your way to a masterpiece dinner to set before family and friends. Employing the “Tasting Colorado” cook book as a partner in the sublime, you can prepare “Chile Crab Rolls with Charrel Corn and Sriracha Mayo” without ever taking your eyes off the mountains. Or try “Chile-Citrus Shrimp with Coconut Rice and Red Curry Vinaigrette” with a glass of claret to compliment the blood-red sunset now bathing the mountains. Save the “Lamb Sliders with Mint and Tomato-Ginger Chutney” for lunch on the deck tomorrow. An “honor wine” selection invites you to “breathe” a bottle of Chateau Argadeus Bordeaux to compliment your creativity and toast the majesty of the mountains. Just replace it with a vintage of equal or greater quality at your first opportunity.


Cedar Lower was conceived and built on a grand scale. A wood-burning fireplace handily dispels any seasonal chills that may arise. Museum-quality American Indian artifacts --- rugs, pottery, shamans, basketry, and sand paintings --- abound. The master bedroom suite boasts an over-sized king bed roughly the size of Connecticut. It is positioned to take full advantage of the stunning views to the west. Panoramic canvasses adorn the walls. An elk, seemingly top-heavy with antlers, stares wistfully from the wall in a dramatic framed painting. And, outside your window a herd of live elk grazes past Cedar Lower in insidiously-slow motion. Stand understandably mesmerized. Meeting nature on its own turf poses a grand challenge to take it all in. Outside your suite a stepped path leads off amongst century trees to the rock ledges of Ram’s Horn Mountain. A hot tub positioned on the deck affords those perfect moments of relaxation as you revel in the magnificence of your surroundings. You are, after all, sitting “on top of the world.”

A visit to Cedar Lower enriches your heart, your mind, and your soul. We can hear it time and again in the words of those who have passed this way:

• “We never want to leave.”
• “Feeling snowflakes on our faces while staying warm in the hot tub was heaven on earth.”
• “WOW! WOW! WOW! Amazing --- nothing short of a Fairy Tale.”
• “This home was definitely the cherry on top of a perfect vacation.”
• “We caught rainbow trout, climbed Chapin Peak, trekked in the tundra, and hiked to Bierstadt Lake. But, our heart was forever here in this marvelous residence.”
• This home on the mountain top feels like a holy place.”

You are cordially invited to revel for a few days in the Rocky Mountains and at Cedar Lower --- and to inscribe similar memories indelibly upon your heart forever.

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