Ascent Luxury Vacation Home at Windcliff | Estes Park Vacation Rental
“Ascent” boasts a welcoming, open “great” room featuring a 55-inch HDTV. If cooler breezes blow, a remotely-controlled gas fireplace sports yellow flames dancing on crushed glass enhanced by LED lighting. Modern charging islands for phones and laptops abound. Ceilings far out of reach are supported by the wall of windows on the western facade of “Ascent” displaying the mountains in all their grandeur. The kitchen is brand-spanking fresh and bright. Both it and the breakfast/refreshment bar cozying up to it boast an unobstructed view of mountain peaks beckoning in the near distance. The dining area has front-row seats for the natural spectacle at hand in every direction. A “break out” room downstairs is the perfect staging area for a trail hike or an indoor game. And, the compliment of four bedrooms can handily host up to eight guests in this modern mountain retreat.
A staircase of unconventional sturdiness fit for service aboard Noah’s Ark ascends to the upper level of “Ascent.” But, no “two-by-two” is envisioned here. These stairs are intended for “two only” as vista-view windows lead to the private master suite tucked away upstairs. This fine suite could make rooms in a five-star hotel blush. Niches harbor object d’art. The view from the king-sized bed is, indeed, fit for a king. The air massage tub has its own picture window and what a picture it presents! A colossal shower stands at the ready. The closets and dressing room offer every amenity. Awake and arise! A new day is at hand. The coffee is on in the suite’s own compact kitchen. Step out onto the private corner-wrap balcony. You can actually hear the wind over the wing of a soaring eagle, taste the sky, or touch a rainbow from here. A new day is at hand. And, God is very close by and smiling.
Long’s Peak presides over Rocky Mountain National Park as its highest summit just south of Windcliff Estates and Chiappes’ “Ascent.” It first felt the gentle pressure of human feet when pre-Columbian Indigenous Peoples scaled its heights in search of eagle feathers. Surveyors with the John Wesley Powell Expedition were the first European-Americans to stand at its summit and marvel in 1868. There is plenty of “marveling” left to go around, and Long’s Peak extends its invitation to one and all.
But, whether you opt to tackle the challenging ascent routes of Long’s Peak (14,259’) during the course of your stay --- or not --- your visit to the Rocky Mountains can include a forever-memorable “Ascent” --- thanks to the Chiappe family and their beautiful Windcliff dream home.
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 “Ascent” --- separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Ascent” 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!
