Dunton Hot Spring Resort 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. Just across the mountain from Telluride, this resort is a romantic ghost town, set in an extraordinary alpine valley. The resort 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. 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.
For the nostalgics and the Western films lovers, the cliché “America” for us Europeans. Built in a circle around the Saloon and Dance Hall, they lie just steps from the wonderful bath house. At the other end of town is an open air chapel and tumbling waterfall. The property is as unique as it is stunning. The only thing that beats the 5-star service is the spectacular setting in which you get to enjoy it. According to tripadvisor.com : “The cabins are amazing. Each is completely unique in its design and decoration, and clearly no expense was spared during that process The bed was incredibly comfortable. Who knew such luxury could be enjoyed in such a remote setting. The only thing that people should note if coming in the early summer are the snakes. They are harmless (garter snakes), but they are all over the place. If you (or your wife) have a phobia, you should definitely keep that in mind. You are bound to run into them as you walk the otherwise spectacular grounds of Dunton. Cannot thank everyone at Dunton Hot Springs enough for such a memorable weekend. ”
