Experience a taste of Colorado’s Wild West days in southwestern Colorado with a visit to the all-inclusive boutique hotel property of Dunton Hot Springs. Nestled in a remote alpine valley 30 miles southwest of Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs is a restored mining boomtown that offers rustic-yet-luxurious log cabins, mineral-rich hot springs, and a saloon where gourmet chefs craft authentic western cuisine.
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.
Just a 90-minute drive from the hotel, Mesa Verde National Park is a sacred preserve that was once home to the Ancient Puebloans. Explore their cliff dwellings, built into the sides of scenic mesas, on a ranger-guided tour.
Natural treatments such as hot river rock massages, hydrating wraps, herbal body detoxifications, and more are available at Dunton Hot Springs. All treatments are 75 minutes long and $185.
Improve your flexibility, strength, and balance during your vacation. On-site at the camp, one-hour private sessions are available in both yoga and pilates modalities. Reservations prior to arrival are recommended.
Dunton enjoys a partnership with Sutcliffe Vineyards. Additionally, variety of white, rosé, red, and sparkling wines from Colorado, California, and as far away as Italy and France make up the reserve list.
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.
Quench your thirst when you venture off-site to the laid-back Dolores River Brewery for welcoming service, live music, pints of foamy microbrews, and handmade pizza.
There’s something to love about Dunton Hot Springs in all four seasons. Winter brings lots of fresh powder, with conditions that are ideal for downhill skiing, snowboarding, and Nordic skiing.
Winter temperatures often hover in the 30s. Summer sees wildflower blooms and dry, sunny conditions with temperatures climbing into the 70s—always tempered by a cool alpine breeze. Fall is crisp and beautiful thanks to the changing leaves of the area’s many aspen trees.
