We had heard great things about this place, so when it came up at a church auction, we outbid everyone to ensure we could spend our anniversary weekend here. We had read some negative reviews, but had the complete opposite experience. We were greeted as we exited our vehicle by a doorman, warmly welcomed when we checked in, and assigned...

Dear shegland64, Thank you so much for your nice review of Devil's Thumb Ranch.

Cabin accommodations include own real wood fire (gas fired in Main Building/Lodge). Cabins are about a 10-15 minute walk from the Lodge proper and though shuttle can take people to/from, this can cut into time. On balance,stay in Lodge where Hecks restaurant, Hallowed Grounds coffee, ski shop and assorted sitting spaces and nooks are right on tap. Guest service staff...

We stayed with family & friends the week before Thanksgiving. What a beautiful piece of property! Staff is extremely friendly, especially the staff at the barn...we did a morning ride on the wagon to feed the horses. The accommodations were absolutely beautiful. Food was also delicious and nice variety.

Gosh, I don't even know where to start with this place! Suffice to say I LOVED it. The details that went into the main lodge building, which is where you check in, where the main restaurant (Heck's) is, the bar and many of the rooms, is just gorgeous. The wood and steel and the 2 story-tall stone fireplace, the little...

All in all, this is a great resort. It is quaint, personal, not far from Denver, awesome vistas, trails, etc. Where did they lose it with me?

We just spent a weekend at Devil's Thumb Ranch for a wedding and it was magical. The Lodge is beautiful, very clean and rustic feeling. The food at the restaurants and catered for the event was all delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful. One weekend wasn't enough time to experience all that this great location had to offer!

The property is amazing at any time of year. The hotel, spa, restaurants, rooms, and cabins are the perfect blend of rustic/authentic ranch but in a luxury resort. Not too big, very focused on the environment and guest experience. The food is amazing at Ranch House but my family loves Heck's and the staff is incredible there.
