Welcome to “Rell” — Its street address on “St. Moritz Trail” has a definite Alpine ring to it. And, well it should. You need only to step inside to understand why. A western wall of windows arrayed before you frames the majesty of the Rocky Mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. It is a stunning portrayal of forests, tundra, and rock ascending upon rock to ever-greater heights — all capped by a Colorado sky so blue as to defy description. Step out onto the western deck for a breath of the freshest air imaginable as you endeavor to comprehend the majesty of your surroundings. Bar stools at a bar railing compliment the traditional outdoor lounge seating and the attendant gas grill for those moments when only a meal out-of-doors will do. Tall trees hover nearby as a perch for song birds, owls, magpies, and jays. Hawks soar upon a summer thermal. And, it is here that you will discover the majesty of a Colorado nighttime sky when it is pierced with a million pricks of light. Far down in the valley the lights of the YMCA’s International Conference Center lend their twinkle like those of an Alpine village.
The living room ceiling at “Rell” is anchored aloft by heavy, kiva-like beams. The fireplace is a worthy setting to rekindle tales of the trails, waterfalls, snowfields, and glaciers that have been part of your day in the National Park. Leather seats embrace one in a special way at this hour of the evening. The “Rell” kitchen is the real thing with an elegant granite bar overlooking all culinary proceedings — be they assembling a picnic for a day in the Park or a holiday feast. Natural lighting spills down from massive clerestory windows high overhead. The dining room, with its unparalleled views to the Front Range of the Rockies, serves both as an elegant site for meals with the Jazz tableware provided — and as a gaming room for the games and puzzles close at hand.
Many galleries and museums could envy the variety and quality of the Native American art and artifacts arrayed at “Rell.” Limited edition prints by Robert Redbird and Bev Doolittle adorn the walls. A massive “dream catcher” awaits your biggest dreams and a chance to help fulfill them. Indian weavings, baskets, rugs, pottery, and stunning bronze sculptures chronicle the culture and character of our earliest citizens. Their footprints left marks upon the landscape of “Windcliff” in an earlier time. Today at “Rell” these characterizations of their colorful cultures leave tracks upon our hearts.
The ensuite master bedroom awakens with you every morning to the thrill of a Colorado sunrise kissing the mountain peaks with its earliest light. Nature is spread before you in full array. A handsome portrait of Samson — reckoned to be the grandest elk ever to roam these parts — dominates the room. A large-screen TV is at the ready — just in case. An exterior doorway leads out to the wrap-around deck and stairs down to a garden of trees and rocks below. The guest room enjoys the same magnificent views, deck access, and a bathroom to call its own.

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 “Rell” — separated from the “hustle and bustle” of people and their traffic. The Windcliff enclave embracing the “Rell” 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!
