Sweat it out indoors. With views of the 14,000-feet El Diente mountain peak, the West Fork Gym is a humble cabin equipped with weights, a cardio bike, power plates, medicine balls, and more.

Just a 1.5-hour drive from your cabin, Mesa Verde National Park is a sacred preserve. This area was once home to the Anasazi people. See their cliff dwellings, the Cliff Palace, and pay a visit to the Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum.
A little more than an hour away, guests can visit the Sand Canyon Trail to see the Sculpted Monoliths of McElmo Canyon. This is a hearty, one-hour guided hike that culminates in a wine tasting over a packed lunch at Sutcliffe Vineyards.
When glamour meets camping: glamping. From Christy’s Tent made up of cotton canvas to the dazzling copper bathtubs in many of the cabins, you have never “roughed it” like this before in the wilderness. Every luxury has been considered.
Each cabin or home at Dunton Hot Springs has its own story to tell. All but one of the structures were built in the late 1800s when it was first a mining camp. Christy's Tent was constructed more recently. Ask the hotel staff for the historical tale behind your own.
