About Windcliff Vacation Homes

Windcliff’s history started with humble beginnings and a homestead cabin back in 1905. Today, Windcliff Vacation Homes manages vacation rentals exclusively in Windcliff Estates just outside of Estes Park, Colorado. Windcliff Estates is a community of private residents and vacation rentals on the sunny side of Rams Horn Mountain, on the boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest — just minutes from Estes Park.

About the Windcliff Community

The residential community of Windcliff comprises 160 properties: approximately 30 homes are year-round residences, 40 vacation rental homes, 82 second homes and about 8 undeveloped lots in Estes Park, Colorado. Though set-apart and secluded, residents enjoy a short 9-minute drive to the nearest grocery store, restaurants, bars and nightlife. Horseback riding in Estes Park is even closer; stables are just minutes away, and some can even be accessed with a short hike! Residents can also make the most of zip-lining, hiking, nature viewing, and all the things to do in Estes Park provided by the YMCA of the Rockies… RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET!

The Best Views In Colorado

All Windcliff homes enjoy unmatched westward-facing views of the vast Rocky Mountain National Park and Continental Divide. Homes on the southern border of Windcliff border the park, while homes on the eastern borders of Windcliff border the Roosevelt National Forest. Private trails allow residents and guests to enjoy both — year-round, and right from their front door!
