The Ranches, Luxury Colorado Homesites | Devil's Thumb Ranch
This is your home calling

Colorado at its most Colorado

A vast, star-speckled sky. Bugling elks. The chef who knows exactly how you like your Wagyu beef. (Raised onsite, of course.) Welcome to The Ranches, a private, woodland-and-meadow enclave of 24 custom homesites within Devil’s Thumb, an award-winning resort and working ranch. And ranked #1 Cross-Country Ski Resort in North America by USA Today. A rare coming together of home, unspoiled nature and gracious hospitality.
Colorado Mountain Resort


Situated in Grand County’s Ranch Creek Valley, The Ranches at Devil’s Thumb is only a 1.5 hour drive from Denver. Or a beautiful train ride ending in Winter Park, ranked #1 in North America for alpine skiing — and just 20 minutes from your door. Nearby Grand Lake and Lake Granby are Colorado’s very best for fishing and boating. Hike, bike and climb in Rocky Mountain National Park. Or catch the Continental Divide Trail and just keep going, from Canada to Mexico.
Our Location

The Homestead

We’re pleased to announce that construction of The Homestead is underway. And, oh, how this home will live. Thoughtful details consider how you’ll entertain family and friends (after all, a home like this has no shortage of eager guests). And seamless transitions between indoors and out satisfy those who crave unmatched panoramic views of the Continental Divide. Should we go on? We thought you’d never ask.
Home Details


With 360º views of the Continental Divide, Byers Peak and the namesake "thumb" rock outcropping, this magnificent home is currently under construction and has been designed to elegantly gather family for generations to come.

Nature is our lead designer

Because really, who could do better? These 11- to 35-acre sites defer to natural mountain terrain, preserving open space and catch-your-breath views. Some sites sit high on a ridge, looking out on protected national forest. A few tuck into the valley, close to a trout-filled river. Find the setting you love, then build a home to match.
