A once in a lifetime event in a place that's a few million lifetimes old.

Wouldn't it be amazing to start your new life together in a place like Devil's Thumb Ranch? Few places on earth give you the sense of awe and romance that you'll feel here. And fewer still can combine that feeling with facilities and staff that can make your Colorado mountain wedding truly a memory to treasure.

Whether you're planning a more casual outdoor wedding or an elegant black tie event, you'll be able to create your idea of the perfect mountain wedding.

Our 2,900 square foot indoor reception room, The Broad Axe Barn, is built from the hand hewn beams recovered from a Civil War-era Indiana barn and features a 25 foot vaulted ceiling, 7 x 10 feet windows and a 2,200 sq. ft. deck with stunning views of the Continental Divide. It's the perfect venue for weddings up to 160 persons. We also offer more intimate spaces for smaller weddings. Read less

DTR is a gorgeous ranch, with top quality service. The facilities are unique rock & timber buildings, sprinkled with Old West artifacts in a very tasteful way. Pool, spa, cabins, lodge rooms, 'barns' for ceremonies, fine dining and family dining available. We have been clients of DTR since the 70s, when it was just a simple cross-country ski area. Now it's grown into a beautiful, eco-conservative resort and spa.

The venue is amazing and absolutely beautiful. However, working with their team to plan the wedding is a nightmare. We have been passed along to three different on site wedding coordinators because they keep quitting. Our current planner is incredibly unresponsive and difficult to work with. It takes 10 phone calls and emails to get an answer on something simple. We have a local wedding planner helping us as well, and she is frustrated with the lack of responses from the on site planner. While I highly recommend the venue, the process of getting the wedding planned was 10x more difficult than it should have been due to the on site staff.

Devil's Thumb Ranch was the perfect location for our winter wonderland wedding! They were so accommodating, and the atmosphere was incredible. The cost was comparable to other places in the Denver/Metro area - but you get SO MUCH more for your money. The food was so delicious- 5 star. The quality does not decrease just because they are serving/feeding the masses. We had the trout and bison option (sit down dinner) and people told us it was the best piece of meat they had in 10 years! Our wedding coordinator, Anna, was on top of things and always answered our questions promptly. The day was more than I could have every asked for or dreamed of! If you want the PERFECT Colorado wedding, have it at DTR.

I was married here. Gorgeous location, very nice rooms. Much of the staff is very pleasant and accommodating to guests. To set this up, I should say we are an extremely laid back and fun couple, and we had an amazing wedding. However, we had a nightmare with the wedding department. The person assigned to us (Anna) rarely returned phone calls or emails, and made promises that never happened. Our contract was grossly incorrect on several occasions. She told us we would receive a final BEO for the wedding, it never happened. We never saw her the entire time we stayed at the ranch, even though we sought her out twice. She told our wedding planner on the day of the wedding that she was 'babysitting everyone.' The room set-up for the ceremony and reception was never given to staff by our assigned wedding person, and despite speaking with her one week before the wedding about having an OPEN BAR the entire night, the bar went to cash bar in the middle of the reception. We were told there would be no tip jar, yet there was. They didn't have the right linen sizes for their own tables. Multiple guests had HUGE issues making reservations. I could go on and on, but I expect a lot more from this place, especially because we were spending so much to have our wedding here. Please be careful if you are planning a wedding here. Please note that the wifi is horrible, and no one gets phone service, making organizing groups very difficult. I don't want to end this review without something positive, so I will say our guests loved the food.

This venue is really beautiful and all the guests that stayed really enjoyed it. It is hard to find a more stunning location. Our wedding day went smoothly, the food was great, the service was great and we were really happy. So why the relatively low score: Well everything else was pretty bad! The venue for our post-wedding brunch was triple booked - we only found out because our wedding planner was also planning a wedding the next day and they were supposed to be having brunch there as well. The location for our reception had not been built when we signed the contract, but we were told it would have been finished at the end of 2013, it still was a building site in the summer of 2014. Again the communication from DTR was poor and would have been stressful if it had not been for our very proactive wedding planner. DTR are also not very flexible, for instance: if you want to hang any decorations you can't use their ladder, if you want to put anything in the fridge you can't (we were staying in a suite and it had a tiny fridge you could fit a couple of bottles of champagne but not much else). If you use DTR you will have a beautiful wedding and the wedding day will go smoothly BUT everything else is a little haphazard and it is expensive. We strongly recommend Jessica Adler as a wedding planner if you decide get married at DTR as she is awesome and knows the many peculiarities of DTR and took a huge load of our shoulders.

We just had our wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch this past weekend. It was absolutely stunning and unforgettable. The wedding site coordinator, Lindsay, is a pleasure to work with and was very responsive throughout the year with any questions or concerns that we had. They do have strict policies which allow for very little flexibility as far as pricing,etc goes, but Lindsay did everything in her power to make our wedding fit within our budget and yet stay beautiful and look like a million bucks! Our family and friends were treated like royalty as well. Unfortunately, one of cabins burned down while we were there, and they had to move our honeymoon cabin, but moved us to a beautiful lodge suite that was even nicer than the cabin we were originally going to be in! All of our guests said that it was the most beautiful wedding they'd ever been to, and that the Ranch itself was the most stunning place they'd ever seen. Many are now even planning on making annual family trips there from now on. It is so bittersweet that our wedding is now over, but we look forward to our next stay at DTR. Thank you, Lindsay and everyone involved!!! April and Cody 4/13/14

DTR is a beautiful place to get married! The stunning views & ranch made it our perfect venue! Stacy was wonderful to work with & plan our special day & weekend. Unfortunately, Stacy moved & we were passed off to Kevin. This is where things started to go less smoothly. He was not willing to give much helpful advice or really even work much with you. I had envisioned a few things I wanted to happen at the wedding, however Kevin told us they don't allow it at the ranch. To my surprise, I have since looked at pictures of other weddings that took place the same year & they had some of the same items I had requested! We also talked with him about having menus set at each guest's seat for the reception (which is included in the DTR cost). When I got to the reception NO menus. I was later told by the DTR staff member there that night that he wasn't told about the menus. We were also supposed to have wine served to guests during dinner; only a couple tables actually got that service. I even told the staff who was picking up wine glasses & she left my wine glass & poured me wine, but continued picking up glasses & not serving guests. Communication was a big issue I noticed between Kevin & the DTR staff that was actually working the wedding. Stacy, who was now working for a wedding planner, was up that weekend preparing for a wedding the next night. She stopped by while I was getting ready to see how things were going & to wish me a wonderful wedding day! Kevin, on the other hand, did not stop by to check on us once. We only saw him one time that weekend while he was giving a tour to a potential wedding client.
Even though our experience with our new coordinator was not up to the standards that DTR prides itself on, the rest of the staff & weekend was wonderful! The ranch had room for everything (rehearsal dinner, welcome reception, spa, etc.) It made for an amazing weekend for our families & guests! I will definitely recommend DTR, just ask for Lindsey.

This is an absolutely beautiful place to get married. The staff is super responsive, helpful, and fun. The venue is perfectly done and provides the utmost in rustic luxury. We had to get married inside the barn due to snow (our Plan B), and they did such a wonderful job of creating a dramatic moment by opening the doors for our ceremony. Just A+ all around. You can't go wrong getting married here.
