If you're looking for a true mountain setting with the conveniences of a city-based facility, we have the perfect venue options for you.
Talk about wide-open spaces. The centerpiece of our meeting and event center, the Broad Axe Barn is a magnificent 2,900 square foot room with a 25-foot high vaulted ceiling and expansive 7 ft. x 10 ft. windows offering breathtaking views of the Continental Divide. Framed by 150-year-old hand-hewn white oak and beech beams, every detail of the barn adds an authentic and rustic touch - from the 30-foot hand stacked stone fireplace to the white oak wood floors. Open the sliding "barn door" and stroll onto a 2,200 square foot deck - the perfect spot from which to enjoy the stunning beauty of Devil's Thumb Ranch. Accommodates up to 160 persons in banquet style seating.

Nestled on the hillside overlooking the Ranch, our new 50,000 square foot Lodge & Barn includes 31 guest rooms, four guest suites, wine grotto, and meeting and event space for groups of up to 350 people. The centerpiece of the Lodge is the High Lonesome Barn, a Civil War-era structure moved here piece by piece from Ohio, with a wall of windows and unparalleled views of the Continental Divide and Ranch Creek Valley.
Our private dining room named in memory of family members John L. Fanch I and John L. Fanch II has a bit of history behind it. In the 1950's, John purchased land in the Adirondack State Park in upstate New York with his brother-in-law. Later, the land was passed down to his sons – one of whom is the owner of Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa. To ensure a piece of this family history lived on, 150-year-old cherry trees were harvested from the family's New York land, kiln dried, and shipped to Colorado. The beautiful cherry wine racks and beams surrounding you in this room, as well as the uncorking barrel that you walk through to get there, are made from this family timber. An intimate and elegant setting for both private dinners or meetings for two to 16 persons.
A perfect spot for those seeking a more intimate venue for their event. 150-year-old hand-hewn beams frame this 900-square-foot room. Its windows are nearly all glass, allowing for a 240-degree view of the scenic Ranch Creek Valley and Continental Divide. This room also opens onto our 2,200-square-foot attached outdoor deck. Ideal for weddings, receptions or team-building meetings up to 30 persons.
Perfect for smaller meetings, showers, reunions and pre-ceremony gatherings, this space has a nice intimate feel with a stone fireplace, comfortable couches and gourmet kitchen. When necessary, space can be divided into two individual spaces: the Ute Room and the Arapaho Room. In addition, an outdoor patio opens up to breathtaking views of the Ranch and Continental Divide. Accomodates seating for up to 50 persons.
When preparing for the big day, this loft space is a perfect pre-cermony solution, equipped with game tables, plush couches, a wide screen TV, private bathroom and barber stools and sinks for sharpening up to look your best before the "I dos". Space is 930 square feet and can accomodate up to 40 persons.

Our indoor entry/outdoor pool is named after the "fish" in the family. Pond shaped in order not to distract from the natural outdoor setting, it's a great spot to enjoy the sunny Colorado skies. In the winter, warm your muscles in the nearby outdoor Jacuzzi while you marvel at the snow-capped mountains behind you. Heated by geothermal heat, an environmentally friendly method pulling warmth from the earth, the Jacuzzi is open year-round.
