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.
NOT FAR, BUT VERY AWAY
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.
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.
Cross-country skiing or ziplining? With exclusive owner privileges at the Condé Nast award-winning resort next door, your choices can feel as limitless as the Continental Divide views. In other words, don’t be surprised to find yourself communing not just with nature, but with handcrafted cocktails and honey hydration body wraps.
