Akelas Lookout Luxury Vacation Home at Windcliff - 3292 | Estes Park Vacation Rental
"Akela" is a word with many meanings. "Akela" is the name of the wolf featured in Rudyard Kipling's Mowgli stories, collected in The Jungle Book and known throughout the world. In the world of scouting, "Akela" is a symbol of wisdom in the Cub Scout program -- usually the Cubmaster or Den Leader. "Akela" is also this home's owners' 10 year old Great Pyrenees (an Aussie rescue dog) and she, as well as the vacation home bearing her name, are special!
Akela's family has been coming to Estes Park, Colorado for over 50 years -- starting at the YMCA of the Rockies. In 2017, the Foster legacy became permanent in Windcliff when they purchased Akela's Lookout as a second home, to enjoy this very special place in the mountains with their family.
Surrounded by the beauty and sounds of nature, this 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath fully custom and family-friendly home by Westover Construction is pristine.
Experience the Akela's Lookout Rental Home
Inspiring panoramic views of Rocky Mountain National Park and the Continental Divide surround you from every vantage point at Akela's. Every aspect of this gracious home blurs the distinction between nature and the indoors, inviting you to gaze into panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, evergreen forest and azure blue skies.
This home is situated on a secluded one-way trail nestled high on Ram's Horn Mountain in Windcliff Estates. All-weather roads provide easy access to downtown Estes Park without sacrificing the beauty and serenity of the mountain setting. Roosevelt National Forest is steps away... and Rocky Mountain National Park is an easy walk from the front door. The property is forested with Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir with natural plantings served by an automatic irrigation system.
