Devil's Thumb Ranch Tour

We recently had a sales meeting in a majestic place called Devil's Thumb Ranch. It was first introduced to me by some dear friends as we celebrated one of their 40th birthday's in Winter Park. We headed north about 15 miles and took off on what we would call a dirt road back in Missouri and drove until the road ended at this awesome lodge set in the foothills of the mountains. Well since I have been back twice with our sales team for a retreat and each time I want to stay longer. I posted about the ranch a year ago and focused on a lot of the outside...this time I wanted to share a tour of my room, meeting space and the details of a wonderful private dinner we had in the wine cellar.

I was the meeting host and want to think I got a special was a Continental Divide view room, but it was on a corner of the lodge and I had spectacular views.

Sitting area, I LOVE that tapestry bench, they had a small one in the bathroom too.
Love this bathroom!
Giant tub and walk-in stone shower.

I could read in this chair, then sleep, then read....

Bed with with mountains through the windows.

Our first night there we had a private dinner in their wine cellar, John L's Wine Cellar is a great little place where you can retreat and forget all your troubles, especially since your cell phone won't work down there!
Scallop appetizer, the reason we keep coming back...kind of, well no seriously they are that good!

Aren't these the cutest steak knives you have ever seen...this one is for Christy!

Cowboy, crown and baileys.

We then had our meeting in their Timber House which is surrounded on all four sides by giant windows that we had open for most of the day to let the fresh cool mountain air in which was a welcome change for us who had been boiling in the head in the Midwest and south for the previous week.

 If you ever, ever, ever have a need for a meeting or retreat I can't recommend DTR enough. They are a little higher on the price side but the service and setting are completely worth it. Friend them on facebook and they run specials on rooms and events they are having. Here are a couple parting shots.

The pool and hot tub...also visible from the meeting room.
