Remote Luxury in a Restored Colorado Ghost Town

Described as a “perfectly restored ghost town,” Dunton Hot Springs is a quaint collection of historic mining cabins that have been carefully restored into an award-winning boutique hotel. The 19th-century, hand-hewn log cabins, saloon, and dance hall are outfitted with modern creature comforts, offering a comfortable home base for exploring southwest Colorado’s abundant outdoor recreation. Hike, bike, and cross-country ski on trails winding through the San Juan Mountains, set off on horseback like cowboys, or get pampered at the on-site spa. No visit to Dunton would be complete without a soak in the non-sulfurous, mineral-rich hot springs on the property.
