Dunton Hot Springs is an exclusive luxury mountain resort deep in the San Juan Mountain Range of the Colorado Rockies.
The 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. Devoid of cell phones the romantic old town provides high speed wireless internet access and video conferencing to the distant sound of a tumbling waterfall rather than a hissing city street.
Contradictions indeed, like the gentle tranquility or the host of exciting pursuits. Dunton can steer you to adventures you’ve always dreamed of pursuing. Sturdy horses to penetrate the endless wilderness, helicopter skiing in a silent world of powder and glistening sunlight, mountain bikes, snow shoeing, hiking—from leisurely to demanding, camping, fly fishing, river rafting, kayaking; the list is endless.
Or, perhaps spend more contemplative days exploring North America’s most concentrated and evocative archaeological sites. The desert is at your doorstep, a vast Indian reservation is home to Monument Valley and Cannon de Chelly, places as unforgettable as the guides who will lead you through these wind carved masterpieces.
Or, the ultimate luxury of immersing one self in the natural hot springs, in the carefully refurbished bath house or under a limitless sky.
Dunton’s chef has painstakingly established local sources for organic foods he lovingly prepares. Organic lamb from meadows that spawn fields of Boletus and Chanterelles, tree-ripe fruit and plump vegetables as well as big complex wines from our companion farm and vineyard. Our wine list is replete with first growth Bordeaux, California masterpieces, super Tuscans and lusty Aussie favorites.
Dunton Hot Springs lies 30 miles southeast of Telluride and is open all year for individual and group bookings. Rates start at $300 per person per night and the entire town can be rented exclusively for as many as 42 people. All meals, unlimited use of the library, screening room, and hot springs are included. Transportation to a plethora of magical places as well as our local airports can be arranged for an additional charge.
