Your Park Avenue Penthouse may have given you the nickname City Slicker, but after that John Wayne movie marathon you and Taylor Cole just watched, you can’t help but want to embark on your own western voyage. The Dunton Hot Springs Resort, a restored Colorado ghost town turned nature lover’s paradise, has all the niceties you need in a frontier fantasyland. Spend a day heli-skiing, ice climbing and dog sledding to awaken your inner adrenaline junkie during the winter, or in the summer, just relax while fly-fishing beside the Dolores river, riding bareback through the Rockies, or just soaking up the peace and quiet of nature.
Settle down in one of Dunton Hot Springs’ fourteen exclusive and unique cabins and kick back with a magnificent view of the landscape before hitting the saloon for a nightcap. After a long day of winning over the west, crack open a bottle of Merlot from their reserved wine list and cozy up next to Taylor by the fire. Just don’t forget to pour one out for John Wayne.
ABOUT DUNTON HOT SPRINGS
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 t
rails 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.
