The town of Westcliffe dates back to the 1800's with its silver mining roots. The main street facades look like something out of a Hollywood Western. Our home fits right in as it was built back in 1892 but has the creature comforts of modern day. Once you have parked your car, you will be able to access the entire town comfortably by foot- restaurants, a wine bistro, ice cream parlor, grocery store, bowling alley, movie theatre, shops, bakery, parks, festivals, amphitheatre, the railroad and town museums, artwork, churches- all within just a few blocks.
Westcliffe is a great place to beat the heat in the summer. You will find the people of Westcliffe tend to greet each other with a warm smile and a hearty hello. There are many charming Victorian homes that dot the side streets. The well stocked grocery store also offers video rentals and hunting & fishing licenses/accessories.
The growing Amish community that is making Westcliffe their western home provides a simple charm that is hard to rival. Horse drawn buggies are almost a daily siting and they have enhanced the community with fresh baked goods at their bakery, quality handmade furniture and occasionally offer fresh churned homemade vanilla ice cream!
