Our first priority at Devil’s Thumb Ranch will always be the safety of our guests and staff accompanied by proactive communication to promote it. We understand our guests’ concerns pertaining to travel in the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Out of an abundance of caution considering recent Coronavirus developments, and with respect for the health and safety of our staff, guests, and community, Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa will be discontinuing all operations, including lodging, activities, spa, and dining effective the morning of Monday, March 16th, 2020.

Devil’s Thumb Ranch plans to resume operations Friday, May 22nd, but this schedule is subject to change based on conditions as they evolve.

Full refunds for the remaining portion of a cancelled stay will be issued to all leisure guests with existing reservations through May 22. Corporate bookings and events are being handled on a case by case basis to determine the best course of action to meet their needs.

Devil’s Thumb Ranch regrets the inconvenience associated with this unprecedented situation.

For more information please contact our Reservations Team at (970) 726-7000 or our Group Sales Team at (970) 726-3779.
