“Best Place in Estes Park”
Reviewed 21 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

This was the best vacation! From check in to check out so smooth. The solitude on the mountain was so welcome. It snowed the night before we arrived and the drive in seeing the snow covered trees was just beautiful. The views from the house are breathtaking and the elk and deer come right up to the house. The house is beautiful inside and out. Our family did not want to leave. We are already trying to figure out when we can go back!

Thanks so much for your review. We would like everyone to know that there are numerous updates to this awesome home including living room furniture and all new dining room chairs. We have re-photographed the home, please check it out at www.windcliff.com and be sure to click on the Visual Tour! The panoramic views from the house from all levels are truly inspiring.

“Sponsel was a good choice to stay in Estes”
Reviewed 11 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The service staff was friendly and receptive to all our needs. The views from the living room and dining room were the best part of the house. The view side of the house was almost entirely windows overlooking the rocky mountains. The property is conveniently located just a few minutes from town. However, it takes 5-10 minutes to drive up or down the driveway. The driveway to the house is quite confusing with switchbacks and side roads. At night it is very difficult to navigate through the maze of side roads which are all gravel. The driveway is awkward and difficult to exit. The house has four bedrooms, two fireplaces, a full kitchen, hot tub, two car garage, sauna and laundry facilities. Very nicely furnished also.

Thank you for your review. Windcliff is located on the western side of Rams Horn Mountain, which is what gives each of our homes spectacular views of the Continental Divide. The "driveway" to Sponsel is actually fairly short, straight and ends at a large concrete pad with a double garage that is attached to the home. There is a turnaround area near the end of the driveway. The Windcliff roads that lead up the mountain are winding gravel roads with switchbacks. We give each of our guests detailed maps of the mountain so that they may find their way around. We hope that you will visit us again soon!

Thank you for your comments. The neighborhood that Sponsel is in is built up the west side of Rams Horn Mountain, which is what gives each home spectacular views. The road to access the homes is a well-maintained dirt road that winds up the mountain. Your comments on the furnishings have been forwarded to the owners.

Thank you for your review. We are aware the heat build-up in the living room and regret that due to the massive wall of windows in this home the sun comes in with the panoramic. There are two sets of double french doors in the living room and entry which can be opened and then closed with screens for cross ventilation. We find that this will cool down the living room quickly since the mountain air is always cool.
