Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 November 2013

My husband took me to Devils Thumb Ranch for my 29th birthday. It was my 3rd stay and, as always, it exceeded my expectations. The staff is always so friendly and makes you feel right at home. Our room had an epic view of the mountains and a cozy fireplace. Everything was clean and tidy. They think of every detail to make sure your stay is perfect. From the plush robe to the homemade cookies placed next to your bed. We decided to eat at Hecks for dinner. The food and service were both impeccable. We did not make it to the spa this trip, but plan to go back again and include a spa treatment. Overall, our trip was excellent! We left Devils Thumb relaxed and refreshed. I cannot wait to go back again!

Devil's Thumb Ranch is very close (10 minutes) to the Winter Park ski area and about 1.5 hours from Denver. We have stayed here a couple of times and like the cabins. (there is the main lodge and also individual cabins a short distance from the main lodge) This ranch is incredible. The scenery is breathtaking. The main lodge is rustic and relaxing. Recommend a hike up the trails, or snow shoeing, horse ride, cross country ski, etc. Really a great place to get away. And very family friendly - the main lodge has a movie theater, game room with a small bowling alley, pool tables and other games. My kids really enjoyed the game room. The food and restaurants are excellent and there is good variety - you never have to leave the ranch. For lunch or more casual dining there is Heck's and for dinner the Ranch House Restaurant is perfect. Both have many organic and local items on the menu.

We recently attended a wedding at Devils Thumb Ranch. It is a beautiful venue....perfect Colorado! I have traveled extensively, lived abroad and stayed in many types of lodging around the world. I have never had to spend an entire day trying to reconcile my AmEx bill due to their arcane accounting practices. They create a mess with credits and debits .....which is totally unnecessary. They charge your card for a nights lodging at the time of reservation, then charge your balance a few weeks before your stay. They're reasoning is because someone could get away without paying. They really need to pass that along to the millions of independently owned lodging facilities throughout the world. Buyer beware!

Was attending our nephew's wedding and we got in on Wed night. The place was quite empty as it is between seasons. Although we planned on dinner in the bar restaurant, we ended up at the higher end restaurant. What a great experience... We start at the bar, enjoyed 1/2 price bottle of wine. The dinner including Wagyu beef appetizer was fantastic. The bartender provided a great service experience.
The hotel itself is roomy, western and very comfortable. Our room was big and had great views. It's a bit of a trek from the Denver airport, but well worth the hair pin turns to get there. Would definitely consider this place again.

Stayed at this property recently for a work function (small business gathering). It is a PERFECT place for a sales meeting or work retreat, etc... The property is stunning. Nature, horses, a beautiful pool & spa. Good music in the restaurant. Old timey mixed with new/eco.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin which was spacious and had two bathrooms. It was comfortable and warm (though the floor heat takes a long while to heat up -but space heaters are provided while you wait for the room to heat).

Positives: The setting, friendly service, nice pool & hot tub. Love the log cabins. Love the eco friendly approach to the Ranch.

Could be improved:
*Lighting outside the cabin up the walkway/path to the cabins. DARK. If your visions not so good, it is very hard to see your way from the driveway to the front door.
*Food in the restaurant- could be better. The fish tacos just didn't taste entirely fresh. Other dishes were just "so so".
*Coffee shop - nice and good light food/lunches.
*BUT...because this place is so remote, they should have a better selection of snacks to go (for sale) available 24/7 in the Lobby.
*Hangers! - only 2 hangers were available in the bedroom. No closet. Hangers hanging on a series of about 4 coat hooks. Not an easy way to hang up clothes without hangers - unless you want a hook dent in all your clothes....

Overall, a really really really nice place to visit and relax.

Beauty doesn't begin to describe how amazing Devil's Thumb Ranch is! The setting is absolutely breathtaking against the snow dusted mountains. The chilly wind frosts patterns in the long fall grass. Layers of earth, plant, stone, cloud, and sky create soft stacks of every color as far as the eye can see. Inside the lodge you are greeted by friendly and eager staff that are accommodating and attentive. The decor is warm and inviting. At every turn, there is a comfy nook beckoning for you to sit for a spell and relax. The bed is soft and comforting. There are so many things to do at the Ranch that there's no need to plan for anything else. Or, you can just sit by one of the many fires and enjoy a good book while sinking into a cozy weathered couch.

Room Tip: Ask for a continental divide view room!
