Dances With Wolves perches upon a spacious and secluded lot bordered by green space and sheltered by towering trees. The vestibule’s walls are adorned with artistic renditions inscribed on barn wood. Entering the Dances With Wolves residence immediately reveals its reason for existing. A wall of western windows displays one of the most dramatic mountain vistas imaginable. Jagged mountain peaks rise up before you to kiss the sky. These are the mountains of the Front Range and the Mummy Range of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. They are crowned with year-‘round snow and America’s western Continental Divide. Venture out onto the western deck where the freshness of the mountain air defies description. Tables and chairs abound. But, the most-intriguing piece of furniture here is the double side-by-side platform rocker swaying even now in the gentle breeze.
The great room at Dances With Wolves presents itself as an ideal haven for all of the “at home” moments of your vacation and the perfect base camp from which to launch an infinite variety of outdoor adventures in the National Park and its surroundings. (A stash of tall walking sticks stands in the corner — ready when you are.) A moss rock, wood-burning fireplace invites hours of relaxation and contemplation in the leather furnishings arrayed before it. Rare samples of merchantile-store furnishings adorn the room. A primitive art rendition of early natives confronting a herd of elk is handsomely etched on the surface of the coffee table.
A friendly on-lookers’ bar delineates the creative space harbored in the kitchen at Dances With Wolves. A glass-top range awaits the first “short order” of the day — or the opportunity to share in the preparation of the heartiest holiday meal you can envision. This tray-ceilinged kitchen is wondrously bright and affords a view south towards the Wind River Pass. Brew a cup of Keurig “100% Arabica Donut Shop Blend” from the selection at hand and head for the western deck. It is the appointed hour for the rising sun to dapple the mountain peaks.
Dances With Wolves’ dining table is situated near the western windows so that the unobstructed view of the National Park is a guest at every meal. A sculpture of an adventurous bear steering a large, provision-laden canoe and his compliment of cubs down the middle of the table provides smiles at every meal! A magnificent antler chandelier with renderings of Colorado elk etched in glass hangs overhead. (And, incidentally, isn’t that a live bull elk and his harem grazing past Dances With Wolves even as we speak?)
Dances With Wolves affords you three bedrooms — a master suite on the main level and two more on the level below. Dances With Wolves’ master suite is situated such that you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains. The entire residence is a veritable gallery of fine art prints. Rick Kelley’s masterpiece portrayal of a wolf entitled “The Shadow Hunter” dominates the staircase as you descend to the lower level. The wolf’s stately stance and steely gaze enhance your perception of your wilderness surroundings every time you pass. It is downstairs that you will find two more bedrooms, a home theater, and a magnificent Jacuzzi soaking tub set against the western-view windows. Outside is a ground-level patio where a gas grill awaits your creative culinary pleasure.
