This property surely deserves high praise!! First off, the actual property is insane in scale with over 8000 acres. The hikes were fantastic, and I can see why people love to cross country ski at Devils Thumb. I did not make it to the spa, but it looked nice when I check in for morning yoga. Usually yoga at hotels can be iffy at best, but this yoga teacher obviously had years of experience. The room I had was fantastic, and the quality of construction for the entire property is obvious. The bathrooms are updated, and the cleanliness of the room was apparent. Finally, I love that they have a coffee shop that opens early for early risers who simply want some morning coffee and a lot of quiet. The staff were always extremely helpful and courteous as well- I never waited for a waiter or someone to approach me and ask if everything was ok. I'll be back in the winter, for sure!! Thanks for the top notch stay!!!

My wife and I stayed for two nights at Devel's Thumb Ranch to relax immeatiately following our wedding in Vail. What can I say other than this place is a treat. Being in the valley between the moutains made for dramatic sunsets and an excellent "not gonna find many places like this" vibe. We enjoyed how spot on the decour was for the area. We went for a 6 mile hike up to Marker Hill Vista point to get a great view of the valley. We went in July and walking through the wildflowers was fun. Highly recommend to anyone who recently watched "Yellowstone" and wants to try out a ranch style vacation.

We just returned from a 2 night stay at this beautiful property as part of our western journey. Our beautiful room was located in the High Lonesome section of the resort.We enjoyed the balcony with the rocking chairs and the view of the mountains. We started every day with a hike around the property and well maintained trails. We picked the perfect time of the year as the grounds were covered in wildflowers. I took part in the yoga session which was outside and again offered another breathtaking view. We enjoyed a relaxing day at the pool with dinner at the on property restaurant. I would definitely recommend this place and would like to return again for a girls trip.

Visited for a wedding. Virtually no rooms were ready. We waited until 9pm for more than one room. No cell service, and front desk stated that they would call us when the room was ready. Not sure how that could work given the lack of cell service. Several family members were stranded with their luggage at the service desk. A manager sat at a desk in the corner of the waiting room and refused to speak to anyone. Given their reputation, management should have been much more hands on. Find them a place to relax, get them some snacks and water. DO SOMETHING! YOUR STAFF IS OVERWHELMED! You're paid to solve problems. Do it. Over 3 days we saw much of the same staff on duty from early morning until after midnight, and they were almost universally helpful and provided good service, however, given the isolation of the facilities, I am concerned about their treatment. The facilities were nice, mostly. The walking paths are steep and poorly lighted. The elevator in high lonesome sounds and acts sketchy. The pebbles in the shower stall are uncomfortable to stand on and very uneven. Our room floor was dusty and there were dirty towels in a closed bin in the restroom. The wifi is adequate. The fire pits and smores were great. The views were incredible. The binoculars in the closet were a great touch. The horses looked healthy and contented. I always have low expectations for food served at weddings and this place did not disappoint. The salad was good. The chicken was ok. The steak was dramatically undercooked and tasted freezer burnt. The cake was crunchy. Breakfast was ok, but insanely priced. The staff advised us to eat in town when we could. Wendy's was as expected, the fried chicken at Safeway was tasty and their service was excellent. The taco truck was fantastic, but had no chicken on the day we visited. Should you be planning an event here, look at the health of your attending audience. This is not a place for your elderly or infirm family members. The management needs to step up their game dramatically. All the issues I encountered during our stay could be quickly and simply resolved by a management team that actually cared about customer satisfaction. Your staff, given their apparent 24 hour shifts and lack of support, was fantastic. The location is fantastic. Make your clients want to stay on the property.

My husband and I recently stayed at Devils Thumb for a one-night stay during a trip to Denver. We were looking to escape to the mountains for part of our short stay and really enjoyed the property. I had previously been to the spa here and this is why we chose it. Customer service during the booking process was phenomenal and we received a personalized itinerary for our stay. We did reserve the hot tub twice and this was really enjoyable. The views across the entire property are amazing and the rooms are very comfortable. We stayed in the high lonesome section and really enjoyed our room. The king bed was very comfortable and the balcony overlooking the range was really nice both in the evening and in the morning with coffee. As with some of the other reviews, the service at Heck's tavern (for breakfast and dinner) was very poor and it just seemed like they were overbooked and understaffed. I would say though that this would not deter us from returning as the rest of the property can stand on its own. The complimentary smore's were a really nice touch and there were plenty of firepits to utilize throughout the evening. We will definitely be back and look forward to taking advantage of more of the amenities on the property. Thanks for a great stay and a big note of thanks to Dan the General Manager for his assistance during our visit! We had a bit of a mishap with our luggage (completely our fault) and he and his team were fantastic in both locating it and getting it to us before we left and we are grateful for the wonderful customer service we received upon our departure!
