Guestbook comments from the manager

Waking up every morning to the beautiful mountains was breathtaking. The cabin was everything and more than we expected. It was so quiet and the animals were beautiful. One morning we had twelve beautiful doe at our door. Then every evening and morning they came. I would refer everyone to stay here it was awesome!

We were awestruck by Awestruck!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best rental homes in the Estes Park/RMNP area. It's certainly one of the best vacation rental homes we've ever stayed at. The home itself is fabulous, and then add in all of the amenities and how well equipped it is (everything from note pads/pens/scotch tape to a shop vac in the garage in case you need to vacuum out the car) you simply can't get better than this house. It did take us a few trips up and down the mountain side to get used to the switchbacks but once you get there, there's nothing to disappoint.

Top notch on every level

  • 5 of 5

We spent an idyllic four days in this fabulous property away from the bustle of Estes Park.

The property is the best we have ever stayed in and we have rented private homes all over the world. Previous reviews have already outlined all the wonderful aspects of this beautiful family home. Nothing has changed,it is exquisite.

We loved the peaceful location and cooked mostly in the home. Why would you choose to eat out when the view from your table is as magnificent as the vista from every window?

We did the walk to Lilly Lake which is well worth the effort but recent storms have made the outward walk a little tricky to follow once you reach the meadow with the corrals in it. Stay over to the left along the tree line and you will reconnect with the trail.

We would recommend this property to a couple or a family and we paid less for a night than we did in a Denver hotel!

So beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at Awestruck!! Very relaxing, amazing views and perfect location. We stayed with our 2 young children and another couple with their young child and it was just perfect! The house is close enough to town that it's not a hassle to get out, but far enough out that it's peaceful. There was wildlife everywhere and breathtaking mountain views. The house was equipped with new appliances and pretty much everything you will need! The Windcliff office staff were very helpful and great to work with right from the start. We will definitely be back!!

Also, we loved the photographs in the house taken by the owner. Beautiful!! Would love to know if it's possible to purchase a print!

The name says it all!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a luxurious vacation with scenic views, good hiking and relaxation. This property is beautiful and fully equipped with everything you need. The views are breathtaking! Hot tub was a much needed relief after a day hiking in RMNP. Location is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still convenient to restaurants, shopping and access to RMNP. It felt like a home away from home. Looking forward to coming back in the future.

Beautiful mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Awestruck from July 11-18, 2015 with four adults and three children. The views are amazing at this home! My husband spent hours trying to figure out which mountains we were looking at. We loved that the property had a very nice set of binoculars to enjoy the view further. We saw tons of animals from the property - deer, hummingbirds, birds. There is an incredibly comfy chair in the corner that is perfect for curling up with a book and enjoying the atmosphere. The kitchen is incredibly well-stocked. There are plenty of dishes, pots and pans, etc. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook - even a waffle maker and a stand mixer. In the bathrooms, there was an ample supply of towels for our large group. The Windcliff property group was very responsive to our questions. We enjoyed cooking out on the grill most nights and sitting at the over-sized picnic table. The neighborhood was quiet and the house was centrally located to RMNP and Estes Park but felt tucked away in the mountains. The owners called us and welcomed us our first day - that was a very nice touch. The home's decor is beautiful - a very tasteful mountain retreat - and the photography throughout the house (taken by the owner) is breathtaking. You won't regret booking your vacation at the Awestruck!

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Awestruck March 18-22, 2015 with our 2 young children. Everyone had an amazing time. The home is beautiful, very comfortable, and in excellent condition. Easy access to the National Park and Estes Park. Elk and deer were everywhere! The views of the mountain vistas from Awestruck are outstanding. The service and property management was great. The home is perfect for families. We cooked every meal at the home and built a fire every morning! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. My only regret is that we had to leave and go back to reality!
