Real antiques in your room
Each room is a little different from neighboring rooms
Elk bugling
Yummy lemon coconut cookies on your pillow
quiet
Great spa
Wonderful restaurant, all organic, locally sourced when possible.
When the James Beard Foundation allows one of its events to be held at a location, you know it will be fabulous.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the meadow Or get a ridge top cabin

Unbelievable mountain getaway. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with a kitchen and a fireplace. The place was impeccable. Beds were huge and comfortable. It felt like home. Only complaint, while minor, was that service was a little slow at the restaurant. But that may have been an exception because everyone from the valet to the front desk, to our housekeeper was friendly, attentive and made us feel welcome. Can't recommend this place enough.

We just attended a wedding at Devil's Thumb this past weekend. It was a ton of fun and absolutely gorgeous location! However, everything feels a bit fabricated Western experience (touristy), but it's absolutely worth a visit.

We stayed in the bunkhouse because it was far less expensive than the main lodge, but you are so far away from all the amenities, in the end it's not worth the cost savings. Basically you're paying for a spa and pool you'll never use. We were also told there would be a shuttle between both locations. This never happened. The Bunkhouse is great if you have a large group that is only staying there. I highly DO NOT recommend it if you are in fact planning on taking part in anything at Devil's Thumb Ranch.

The food was decent, but nothing like what you find at top restaurants in other Colorado ski towns.

I wanted to love this place, but for sure like it and will probably visit again.

Room Tip: Stay in the main lodge. Unless, you have a very large group and don't plan on leaving the Bunk...

Love that the pool is heated and open year round. The hot tub and steam room are good, too!
Happy Hour at the fire pit has delicious appetizers and you can't beat the scenery there. Walked to the pond to watch fly fishing and met new friends on the deck. Great staff, and all the rooms we have stayed in are comfy and lavish. We will spread the good word, and be back as soon as we can. The Fall specials make it affordable for us! Thank you!

Room Tip: Liked both rooms we stayed in! Corner suite was large , sunny and quiet!

The Stables at Devils Thumb Ranch provided a wonderful, memorable experience for our whole family. Garth, the head wrangler, obliged us by providing time in this staff's schedule to take our two Grandsons on a pony ride. Anthony, the wrangler that took them, was helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He took time with these two little Dudes and made them feel special. The horses, Harvey and Spike were very cooperative as well. The following day, we watched as the entire staff conducted a team building exercise for the staff of our Daughter-In-Laws company. Again, their expertise and enthusiasm was remarkable. The guys and gals that work for Garth are great ambassadors for the cowboy (and girl) lifestyle. We can't say enough about how they used humor and hands on experience make a special weekend. The setting for this experience is also beyond description... truly a beautiful mountain setting. As special thank you goes to Anthony. We wish you and your co-workers the best.

The friendly staff, outstanding accommodations, and breathtaking scenery all make Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort one of my absolute favorite places to visit. We have visited a few times and have stayed in their cabins and in the lodge. All rooms we have stayed in have been extremely clean and comfortable. My favorite way to spend the day at Devil's Thumb is to begin with breakfast at Heck's, take a fun hike and look for wild life, then soak in the hot tub while taking in the gorgeous scenery. If you are looking for a luxurious, relaxing getaway in the mountains, definitely go to Devil's Thumb!

Gorgeous property. Impressed with front desk staff (Molly) and Hecks killer breakfast. Cassidy was our great server. Little things are done well here. Coffee is Lavazza! Horses, hiking, spa, gym. Nothing was forgotten. I was scouting cabins for a larger group and was disappointed in tiny 3 ft refrigerators and no grilling allowed. I live in Marriotts and Ruths Chris all year so on vacation i dont want to eat out every meal. Having said that, the cabins were among the best ever.
