Colorado’s Premier Mountain Resort
75 Miles West of Denver. 15 Minutes from Winter Park. A World Away From Everything.
At Devil’s Thumb Ranch we offer experiences that embrace the pioneering spirit of the early homesteaders while honoring and preserving the pristine landscapes for future generations. Here, guests are invited to participate in real, authentic ranch adventures from horseback riding, fly fishing, and cross-country skiing, to fat tire mountain biking, zip lining, and more on over 6,500 acres of Rocky Mountain wilderness. Of course, such a luxurious escape would be incomplete without refined modern comforts like our renowned spa, acclaimed restaurants, elegant lodge accommodations, and private rustic cabins. Simply unplug from everyday life and lounge by the year-round heated pool and hot tub, destress with daily yoga, or curl up by the fire, roast a marshmallow, and reconnect with the people who matter most. It is, dare we say, an authentic Colorado Ranch experience you simply can’t find anywhere else.
