The Snowdrift Lodge (formerly known as Garland's Alpine Lodge) is a premier vacation rental home at Windcliff Estates, a duplex townhouse of extraordinary character. The Lodge stands less than 300 feet from a common boundary with Roosevelt National Forest and a similar distance from the boundary of Rocky Mountain National Park (which adjoins Windcliff). And, the view to the west from Snowdrift Lodge encompasses the towering grandeur of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains... within what appears to be arm's reach.
The Snowdrift Lodge ExperienceStep inside this mountain rental home masterpiece to be greeted by a symphony of etched glass, slate, rock, tile, wood, and modern hues --- all in perfect harmony. The living area boasts west windows focused directly on the mountains. Towering walls resonate with art that evokes and captures the spirit of the nature surrounding you. Oversized couches await your moments of shared “debriefing” after every outing. A pair of hob-nail recliners is focused directly at the mountains. A fireplace stands at the ready; its massive mantel a giant beam of time-weathered wood salvaged from some earlier story of these mountains. The west deck is outfitted with a gas grill, tables, and seating for all.
Dining at Snowdrift LodgeThe fully appointed kitchen at Snowdrift Lodge is the kitchen of your dreams. Bosch appliances and every essential tool of the culinary trade are at your disposal -- for whatever your appetite and imagination can envision and prepare. An “onlooker” bar is supplied with swiveling bar stools so comfortable that you could spend eternity in them without complaint! Set the dining room table with the luminous white porcelain dinnerware at hand, tune the Bose Wave music system to “background level,” and welcome the stunning view of the Continental Divide as your dinnertime guest. By the way, and not to be forgotten, the powder room near the front entrance is worthy of a picture in any architectural review.
Lodging and Rest at Snowdrift Lodge in Estes ParkThe master bedroom is designed on a massive scale. The space is massive. The oversized king bed is massive. The walk-in closet is big enough to live in! Plus, the view from the west windows is the most massive of all. The raised, see-through fireplace is positioned for enjoyment whether you are abed or adrift in the Jacuzzi hot tub.
Entertaining at Snowdrift LodgeAs you head downstairs, at Snowdrift Lodge is a family room that does honor to the concept. It features seating and reclining for a wonderful cadre of family and friends, a large-screen HDTV home theater, a library, a curio gallery, a wet bar complete with wine cooler, games, and a full-sized pool table. And, just outside on the lower deck resides a hot tub focused on the views all around. An ensuite queen bedroom welcomes a woodland view at morning’s first light. Yet another bedroom with over-sized twins and a full bath round out the sleeping accommodations.
