Daniel Abrashoff, General Manager, meticulously oversees all operations at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa as well as at the resort’s sister properties – Vasquez Inn and Trailhead Inn in Winter Park.
A graduate of Penn State University and a seasoned travel and hospitality executive, Mr. Abrashoff came to the resort from The Lodge at Glendorn in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Under his leadership, the luxury retreat achieved 4-Star rating status from Forbes Travel Guide and was named 2016’s #1 Resort Hotel in the Continental U.S. by Travel & Leisure and Orvis Fly-Fishing Lodge of the Year.
Mr. Abrashoff was also responsible for the development of The Lodge at Jackson Fork Ranch – a fly-fishing lodge located on a 2,000 acre bison ranch in Bondurant, Wyoming. Additional accomplishments include serving as VP of Services for a destination club with luxury homes in the United States and Europe. He also worked for SMP Ventures and led the re-branding and development of Lake Kora in the Adirondacks along with Annandale, a restored New Zealand pioneering sheep & cattle farm that offers guests a selection of distinctive luxury villas.
A perfect fit for Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa, Mr. Abrashoff was drawn to the resort’s unique activity offerings, sustainable business practices, and commitment to historic preservation and conservation. Like owners Bob and Suzanne Fanch, Mr. Abrashoff strives to elevate the service for guests at every touchpoint for an exceptional Colorado experience.
