Brigitte and Cornelis, world travelers and multi-lingual citizens of the globe, welcome you to “Deering” — a stunning three-story, tri-plex condo Estes Park vacation rental home gracing the slopes of Ram’s Horn mountain at Prestigious Windcliff Estates.
Deering is a multi-faceted jewel of a residence. Enter the crowning top level at Deering and you are immediately embraced by its “reason for being.” Directly out the west, south, and north windows (that stand in lieu of walls) are the majestic, soaring peaks of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. So perfectly situated is Deering that, ensconced in the living room, you could believe that you are the only spectator entitled to view the world-class spectacle spread before you. A wood-burning, moss-rock fireplace is at hand should a cool season or a chilly evening put in an appearance. Clerestory windows high overhead usher in the earliest rays of each new day. The bright and airy furnishings marry the best of “European” and “Mountain” styles. Step out upon the western deck and you feel like the bridge captain of a mighty ship plying the white-capped sea of mountains spread before you. A towering tree tickles the deck where you stand when a breeze stirs. Birds pause to rehearse a song or two.
The kitchen at Deering leaves you wanting for nothing when it comes time to satisfy your mountain appetite. Set the dining room table according to your mood. China from William Sonoma and Villeroy & Boch are at hand in the sideboard. Or dine out on the deck hand-in-hand with nature.
Venture down one level through a sliding barn-wood door and a handsome family room awaits. The walls are a galleried hangout for oils on canvas by McCaine. The room’s offerings include high-definition BluRay TV, a gaming table with games galore, a library, and a writing desk. A door leads directly outdoors whenever a “sighting report” of deer, or elk, or bear resounds through the house. Venture downstairs once again to slightly less-rarified air and a pair of fine bedrooms (one king and one queen) and their attendant bathrooms await.
Each bedroom boasts exterior access to a west-facing deck and the waiting view. The master of masters is nestled down yet one more level. This sprawling ensuite bedroom features a wall-mounted TV and an enormous Jacuzzi tub with magnificent mountain vistas. An intriguing nook off this master bedroom harbors a children’s “cubby” complete with twin beds, toys, and teddy bears. An exterior door allows you to step out to a natural, ground-level patio. A picnic table is nearby on a raised platform with a gas grill at the ready.
If Deering were a camera, it would have a million snapshots to share with you of the Rocky Mountains in every moment, every season, and every mood. They are forever changing and forever captivating. Many are the visitors who have succumbed to the magic of Deering and its special setting among the mountains:
- “Thank you for sharing your ‘glimpse of heaven’ with us.”
- “Deering was the perfect place for our mountain ‘fix!’”
- “Being able to step out on the deck to see and to hear a thunderstorm rumbling in the mountains is an experience I will never forget!”
- “You have a lot more stars than we do in the city.” (Claire, Age 11)
- “Please look after ‘Jeffry’ — or ‘Jeffreida’ — the charming little hummingbird that made us smile every morning.”
- “I could never tire of looking out the windows here.”
- “We are humbled by the breathtaking natural beauty your home overlooks.”
- “Tonight we had the most spectacular view of the stars in all their glory. It seemed we could reach out and touch them.”
- “Boy, this place has a bunch of animals!” (Griffin, Age 9)
- “Coffee on the deck as the sun first kisses the mountain peaks — could it be any better?”
- “It was beyond wonderful to wake up each morning to such spectacular views.”
- “We will return home today with our souls refreshed!”
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 “Deering” — separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Deering” 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!
