We stayed at the resort as part of a destination wedding and it was fantastic. The views were phenomenal and the amenities were great. We ate at Heck's restaurant and bar several times and were pleased each and every time. The resort was a little pricey, but the premium was well worth the overall experience.

We arrived on New Year's Day - granted the day after a big party but it felt like we were walking into a place with a collective hangover. Everything looked tired. The only dinner reservation we could get was at 8:30 and we practically had to beg to get in. Food was fair. Our room was so dark we could...

Our last visit was a couple years ago, and the ranch/ski trails were just as beautiful this time around as well. The service at the ranch is first class, staff are friendly, trail grooming is excellent, and grooming reports are constantly updated. The only disappointment was when we found out that happy hour at Heck's in the lodge was no...

This review is a by tough for me as based on facilities, accommodations and activities alone Devils Thumb Ranch is excellent - maybe even 5 star. However, as many other reviewers have mentioned the poor service level brings it all the way down from what would otherwise have been a 5 star review to a 3 star. The good: Accommodations:...

First off -- TripAdvisor characterizes 3 stars as "average," but I really mean it to communicate "good." On balance, we enjoyed our stay and the Bunkhouse option for staying at Devil's Thumb Ranch has some great things going for it: -- For us, our cozy, rustic room was about half the price of staying at main lodge, much better for...

Beautiful property!! The property has different places you can stay, from individual cabins to lodges. We stayed in the High Lonesome lodge. We visited in December. Our room was lovely with a fireplace and balcony. Nice ambiance in the Tavern restaurant, but have to give it just an okay as far as value. We did not try the other restaurant...

We stayed at DTR over New Year's weekend. It was absolutely lovely. We were in "Willow" cabin. Perfet for 2 people. Very nicely furnished and great amenities. Dinner at the Ranch House restaurant was pricey but good. Breakfast at Heck's was great. We snoeshoed on miles of trails with breathtaking views of the mountains. DTR is not cheap, but a...

As mentioned previously by someone else, no one greeted us as we pulled up to check-in. The room was nicely appointed and rustic. The fireplace in the room was a nice touch and needed as it was really cold outside and in the hallways. The best feature was the heated bathroom floors! Now for the areas needed for improvement to...

From the front desk to their 2 on site restaurants, Heck's and Ranch House. The staff do not seem to have their act together. Check in at the resort took about 20 minutes. The front desk staff kept apologizing and explaining that they have not had enough training. The restaurant servers told us the turn over rate is high. Therefore...
