Right away, you'll know this is going to be a fun and friendly place for you and your guests on your Colorado mountain vacation. As you arrive, you'll meet a carved wooden bear standing tall, beckoning you inside... all while offering “bear hugs” for a nickel. A whimsical woodpecker door knocker tends the front entrance. Welcome to the Mapes vacation home!
The Mapes ExperienceIn the midst of the remarkable collection of mountain homes comprising prestigious Windcliff Estates, the Mapes family has created a masterpiece — a masterpiece you can enjoy during your stay in Estes Park, CO.. The Mapes luxury vacation rental home is exhilaratingly modern and fresh, while embracing a comfortable, natural feel to its interior. As you enter from the welcoming foyer, you'll be embraced by the open living room. Rich lodge-style leather seating huddles near the remotely-controlled gas fireplace, awaiting your company. The grand views from the angled panels above that same fireplace put you in the middle of the Rocky Mountains. A wall of reclaimed wood and Southwestern artifacts add even more unique character to your surroundings.
The Kitchen at MapesAs you journey into the kitchen, you'll find this a chef's paradise; a culinary artist's dream come true. One of its best features: space... and more space! What seems like a full acre of dark granite is the perfect playing field for culinary experimentation. Stacked ovens, an induction range, a microwave drawer, and two dishwashers (you were planning a banquet, weren’t you?) are ready to elevate your mountain vacation meals to full-on feasts. The Mapes family has provided every tool, utensil, and amenity that you could possibly desire here — your imagination is the only missing ingredient. Two handsome decks, just off the living and dining areas, offer alternative locales for taking meals... or just relaxing. A beautiful laundry room (trust us, you will want to take it home with you) is also situated near the kitchen.
Lodging and Rest at MapesThe Mapes residence incorporates five bedrooms and five bathrooms, affording space for eight guests. The master suite is privately situated one flight up, and it's a master suite indeed. A gas fireplace flanks the sleeping chamber, ensuring the perfect atmosphere for a cozy night. With your head resting on the pillow, you can look out directly to a panoramic glass panel showcasing the Continental Divide. For an invigorating start to your morning, sit in the luxurious air-jet soaking tub — featuring its own mountain view. An immense glass-enclosed shower is also close at hand. Tiles, wood, metal, and distinctive lighting harmonize in tune with the gorgeous vistas forever at hand. An ensuite queen bedroom — replete with a wall-mounted TV and mirrored furnishings — plus a king suite constitute the sleeping accommodations on the main level.
Entertainment at MapesDownstairs, you'll discover a home theater and game room, featuring a cozy library of books and games, plus a large screen TV and DVD player. This area is joined by two additional ensuite bedrooms. One of these is a bunkhouse room with three twin beds... guaranteed to be a kids’ delight!
The Hot Tub at MapesAnd just outside, on a sprawling patio, rests a majestic hot tub. It stands ready to recharge your muscles after a long hike or a horseback trek in Rocky Mountain National Park. This hot tub also happens to be perfectly positioned to enjoy one of the greatest views of nature you'll find on Earth — right here in Estes Park, Colorado.
