Devil’s Thumb Ranch
Devil’s Thumb Ranch, a year-round resort encompassing approximately 4,000 acres at the foot of the Continental Divide in the beautiful Ranch Creek Valley, provides seclusion, spectacular scenery, top-notch dining and comfortable accommodations just an hour from Denver and minutes away from the Winter Park ski area.
Environmentally friendly and efficient, Devil’s Thumb Ranch employs a state-of-the-art geothermal HVAC/radiant-heat system as well as an on-site sewer system.
Phases 2 and 3 comprised the activity center (conferencing facilities), including a historic/reconstructed 150-year-old timber-framed barn with high-tech teleconferencing capabilities and fantastic views. A separate timber-framed chapel/meeting room, also with teleconferencing capabilities, is the ideal setting for weddings and receptions.
The retreat center includes an indoor/outdoor pool and hot tub, sauna, steam room and day spa. The three-story, 60-room “hex house” lodge, inspired by the 1937 Timberline Lodge at Mount Hood, was completed in 2007.
