About Dunton Hot Springs

Dunton Hot Springs is nestled in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. Once a bustling mining town, this small, exclusive resort has been completely restored. Though comfort and luxury are now everywhere at Dunton, the Old West ambiance remains. Add the stunning Rocky Mountain scenery into the mix and you have the recipe for a Colorado vacation that is filled with memory-making potential. Day and overnight experiences are available at this resort, and exclusive rental packages are also offered for people interested in hosting a wedding, reunion or retreat. There are 12 private cabins on the resort’s property. All were originally made using hand-sawed logs, and all have been completely restored. Some cabins are perfect for couples.

Dunton Hot Springs is nestled in Colorado’s San Juan Mountains. Once a bustling mining town, this small, exclusive resort has been completely restored. Though comfort and luxury are now everywhere at Dunton, the Old West ambiance remains. Add the stunning Rocky Mountain scenery into the mix and you have the recipe for a Colorado vacation that is filled with memory-making potential. Day and overnight experiences are available at this resort, and exclusive rental packages are also offered for people interested in hosting a wedding, reunion or retreat. There are 12 private cabins on the resort’s property. All were originally made using hand-sawed logs, and all have been completely restored. Some cabins are perfect for couples. The Well House Cabin, for example, features one bedroom, a private hot springs pool and a fireplace. The two-level, three bedroom Tipping Cabin, meanwhile, is ideal for families with up to six people. The 10-person Potter House features a fireplace and an ideal location (between two trout ponds). Each cabin has its own name, its own decor and its own personality, and many guests choose to come back year after year to experience a different part of the property. The exclusive traits of Dunton Hot Springs go well beyond the cabins. There are nine miles of private streams filled with trout. This is literally a paradise for fly fishing. The beautiful alpine valley can be explored on horseback, from the saddle of a mountain bike or on foot via a network of hiking trails. Rafting and rock climbing are also on the menu for adventure-seekers. Winter brings the chance to cross-country ski on well-groomed trails or to explore the area on a dog sled or snowmobile. Back-country alpine skiing and sleigh rides are also possibilities. No matter what you choose to do during the day, Dunton provides plenty of options for relaxing afterwards. Indoor and outdoor hot springs pools provide natural bliss. You can soak in a restored 19th century bathhouse or take a dip outdoors in several pools or in the river near the source of the hot spring. A full menu of massages and skin and body treatments are available in Dunton’s spa. Meals are served in the saloon, and wine, made using grapes grown on the property, is on the menu as well. Many of the ingredients used to create the hearty-but-artful dishes are sourced locally.

What to do

Catch trout along the nine miles of private streams at Dunton. Explore the alpine valley on horseback before coming back to soak in the hot spring water. Ski or snowboard during the wintertime. Enjoy a meal of seasonal dishes in the saloon.
