A once in a lifetime event in a place that's a few million lifetimes old.

Wouldn't it be amazing to start your new life together at Devil's Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa? Few places on earth give you the sense of awe and romance that you'll feel here. And fewer still can combine that feeling with facilities and staff that can make your Colorado mountain wedding a memory to truly treasure.

Whether you're planning a more casual outdoor wedding or an elegant black tie event, you'll be able to create your idea of the perfect mountain wedding here.
The most recent addition to our facilities, the 4,200 square foot High Lonesome Barn, was painstakingly reconstructed from a Civil War-era Ohio barn. It features breathtaking East-facing views of the Continental Divide and is perfectly suited for weddings of up to 350 guests. A converted hay loft provides additional space for intimate receptions and small gatherings and two Rumford style stone fireplaces add to the historic charm of this special space.

Our 2,900 square foot indoor reception room, The Broad Axe Barn, is built from the hand hewn beams recovered from a Civil War-era Indiana barn and features a 25 foot vaulted ceiling, 7 x 10 feet windows and a 2,200 sq. ft. deck with stunning views of the Continental Divide. It's the perfect venue for weddings up to 160 persons. We offer more intimate spaces for smaller weddings as well.






While you're busy with the day's events, your guests will be taken care of in style. Rather than being crammed into the impersonal room of a sterile hotel chain, your guests will have access to our on-site lodging options with individually decorated log cabins, each reflecting the history of the Ranch. All cabins are appointed with antiques from around the world, luxurious mattresses, radiantly heated floors, down pillows and feather beds.

And whether your guests are local and or from out of town, they'll be thrilled by the opportunity to experience a real Colorado mountain vacation. From on-site fly fishing, hiking, snow shoeing and cross country skiing, to raft trips nearby on the Colorado River, or an afternoon spent relaxing in our very own Ranch Creek Spa, there's an abundance of activities to keep even the most mountain savvy visitor enthused – and to wow those city slickers (fly fishing instruction available).
