A stunning rustic setting

Dunton Hot Springs is a perfectly restored former Ghost town located in the Rockies, if you are looking to really get away from it all then look no further than this indulgent luxury resort.  Life is simple at Dunton Hot Springs, from a game of pool to reading in the library or taking a stroll around the resorts grounds, however, for the more adventurous *activities include Horse riding, hiking trails, day trips to local National Parks and Fly Fishing.  The pace of life in this romantic old mining town certainly slows and that allows you to take time in selecting your meals from the new daily menu that uses many local and regional ingredients, some of which are sourced from the resorts own farm and vineyard. Accommodations include tented glamping style at Dunton River Camp or wooden cabins with all the trimmings that really give you that western vibe. If you are looking to strike gold then a visit to Dunton Hot Springs awaits....

Nothing Short of Heaven

The perfect place to disconnect. Rustic cabins with luxury bedding. Three and a half exquisite meals per day. Fabulous wine list and cocktails. Plenty of activities. Don't miss the spa. Truly relaxing.

Unparalleled service!

Basalt, Colorado

A slice of heaven! Besides being a beautiful location, with relaxation written all over it, Dunton has unparalleled service. They have thought of everything for their guests, from daypacks for hiking, rain boots for monsoon season, sack lunches for your drive home, and coffee service at your cabin before breakfast starts! Everyone is very friendly and so willing to assist. The food and drink are delicious. You can spend your time doing any number of activities, including hiking, soaking, massage, ping pong, pool, movie. You name it, I bet they can offer it! It's one of our favorite places to visit.
