Nestled away in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado lies a pristine and indulgent getaway like no other. A mining town during the gold rush, Dunton Hot Springs is now a rustically luxurious resort, lovingly renovated and graciously appointed with modern comforts. One mountain away from Telluride, these deliciously aged log cabins hide magnificent interiors. The entire resort can house up to 42 people, and you can even rent out the town for special events. That romantic vacation you’ve been putting off for too long is calling you to come relax in mineral hot springs, explore glorious backcountry woods, and exalt in a high end natural paradise.
Dunton was homesteaded by the Roscio family in the 1880s and provided them with a comfortable income for many years. Eventually it fell into disrepair and became something of a ghost town hosting lonely back packers and adventurous hunters. A century after its birth, this little patch of land was reborn as Dunton Hot Springs looking to satisfy even the most jaded of travelers with fabulous service and beautiful environs. Each of the 12 cabins is completely unique (sleeping between 2 and 10 people) and offer a variety of amenities depending on your desires. From the Well House (situated on its own “on demand” hot spring), to Bjoerkman’s Cabin (with stunning waterfall views), and Geysir Cabin (filled with lovely African artifacts) each cottage provides a one of a kind experience.
As extraordinary as the lodging is, it may be hard to appreciate with all the activities going on outside your quarters. Winter fun includes skiing, snowmobiling, and ice skating while the summer beckons you towards horseback riding, river rafting, and archeological desert tours. Year round the resort offers its gym, yoga, pilates, and hot springs for your relaxation and enjoyment. In addition, the rates include all meals; and these are meals you won’t want to miss. With ingredients harvested exclusively from their own farm and local resources, every bite is ridiculously fresh and delicious. They also have their own on site winery and promise to pair each feast with the perfect vintage to accentuate your dining experience. Topped off with superb service, Dunton Hot Springs is the ultimate in wilderness vacation as it mixes both the rugged and luxurious to ensure a wonderful stay.
