1800's ghost town with natural hot springs
Only Colorado Resort
To Win Award
Just across the mountain from Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs Resort is a romantic ghost town, set in an extraordinary alpine valley. Our resorts offer a variety of 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 San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies. 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 snow banks. Free of cell phones, this romantic old mining town still provides high speed wireless internet access in every cabin and video conferencing in our dance hall to the comforting sound of a tumbling waterfall.
Reopening for the season on June 1st, 2016, Dunton River Camp is an amazing addition to a stay at Dunton Hot Springs, with 8 luxury tents (and en-suite bathrooms), a stay at the River Camp is as soul enriching as it comes. Each tent has two mountain bikes for guests to use around the property or on the many trails surrounding the camp, and the West Fork of the Dolores river flows through the camp itself. There truly is something to experience for the whole family.
