Dunton Hot Springs

Dunton Hot Springs

Just across the mountain from Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs Resort is a romantic ghost town set in an extraordinary alpine valley. These resorts offer various day and overnight packages, and the entire town or ranch can be rented exclusively for corporate retreats, family reunions, and weddings.

Dunton Hot Springs is a small and exclusive resort nestled deep in the Colorado Rockies' San Juan Mountains. This perfectly restored ghost town thrives on contradictions; hand-hewn log cabins exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon serving food of startling quality, lung torturing trails followed by pampering massages, sensuous hot springs beneath shimmering snowbanks. Free of cell phones, this romantic old mining town still provides high-speed wireless internet access in every cabin and video conferencing in the dance hall to the comforting sound of a tumbling waterfall.

Located just outside Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs breathes new life into a 19th-century ghost town. The 13 rustic log cabins are all unique and surprisingly luxe, with heated slate floors and handpicked antiques; guests in the Well House enjoy their own hot springs. Others can soak weary bones in the old bathhouse or under the stars at the source. Join a trail ride into the Rockies or fly-fish along a private stretch of the Dolores; you?ll find every conceivable winter sport, including heli-skiing. Farm-fresh meals and wine from the resort's vineyard are shared over the Saloon´s long table.

Lodging - Sturdy, hand-hewn, and authentic, the cabins contain a world of whimsy and elegance. Built-in a circle around the Saloon and Dance Hall, they lie just steps from the wonderful bathhouse. At the other end of town is an open-air chapel and tumbling waterfall. All of Dunton’s authentically restored log cabins are full of fascinating details. All the cabins are hand-built and, in some cases, by the original miners themselves. Lovingly restored, each possesses a distinct character. Tastefully decorated, they are full of unique artifacts and furnishings. Every window affords magnificent views of the mountains and the surrounding meadows.

The Hot Springs - The springs are of the calcium bicarbonate type with a strong concentration of dissolved iron and manganese and a little dash of lithium. Bathing in bicarbonate water helps to open peripheral blood vessels and improve circulation to the body’s extremities, and magnesium converts blood sugar to energy and promotes healthy skin. Offering five ways to take to the waters, which range in temperature from 85°F to 106°F: inside the restored 19th-century Bathhouse, under the stars at the source, in the pool outside the Bathhouse, in the pool behind the Dunton Store cabin and inside Well House cabin.
