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....

Lovely magical place

London, United Kingdom

We stayed for 5 nights with our four kids and wished it was more. The hotel grounds are magical and the main lodge and dining area fantastically welcoming. The staff were brilliant and we spent an amazing Halloween celebration with them. They went to incredible lengths to make us feel welcome. The area around Dunton is great for walks and hiking and Mesa Verde is only a drive a way so do-able as a day trip. The spa and mud baths have a stunning setting and the rooms were brilliant. Overall a magical place and would happily go back. Finally the food - it was amazing what they prepared and experimented with 27 miles away from the nearest main town! Great dining experience.

Dunton is a gloriously undiscovered paradise

If you're looking for a quiet getaway in gorgeous surroundings, complete with amazing food and companionship, look no further. Dunton has it all. Wake up to views of the surrounding mountains, soak in the hot springs and read a book until it's time for locally-sourced meals prepared with love and respect. Then sleep like you've never slept before in the quiet and seclusion.
