Dunton Hot Springs Overview

It is thought that the Ute Indians, who were wandering their summer hunting grounds, enjoyed the restorative waters long before the first miners eased their worn-out bodies into Dunton Hot Springs. On the town's highest point, tourists can still see the original spring. The miners used dynamite to open the water source to increase water flow and divert it toward the bathhouse. A great number of ancient images attest to how much the enormous outdoor pool was cherished. This historic mining community in the heart of Colorado has been completely renovated and presents a luxurious refuge.

A little, upscale resort called Dunton Hot Springs is tucked away in the Colorado Rockies' San Juan Mountains. The area's magnificent alpine valley, with its immaculate white snow and flaming orange fall foliage, undergoes seasonal change. The natural hot springs at this gorgeous place are an added bonus because they have positive effects on health. Contradictions abound in this meticulously preserved ghost town, which features hand-hewn log cabins that are exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon that serves food of startling quality, marvelous trails that are followed by relaxing massages, and sensual hot springs that are hidden beneath shimmering snow banks. This charming former mining community still offers high-speed Wi-Fi internet access in each cabin and video conferencing in the dance hall as a soothing waterfall cascades nearby.
