Dunton Hot Springs—A ghost town comes back to ultra-luxurious life.


It’s no secret that we’re proud of our Telluride Trek. There aren’t many places in the United States where a person can put together an inn-to-inn hiking tour like the one that we’ve assembled in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. If you like our village-to-village hiking tours in Europe, but you’ve been yearning for something in the U.S, then check out our Telluride Trek. You get all the hotel-to-hotel hiking goodness that we offer in Europe, with a Texas-sized sampling of the Old West. Think of it as a Heidi-gets-it-on-with-John Wayne kind of tour.

One of the highlights of our Telluride Trek is an overnight stay at Dunton Hot Springs resort. Originally established as a mining town in 1885, Dunton recently earned a reputation as a secluded luxury hideaway with a sophisticated touch of historic ambiance and rustic charm. We love this place! Even more, Dunton recently caught the eye of bon appetit magazine, earning a top five spot on their list of Best Food Lover’s Hotels in America. Check out the article, then put on your ten-gallon hat and join us for a soak beneath a starry western sky. Who knows? You might just see John Wayne and Heidi at the opposite end of the pool.

Be sure to visit Dunton's homepage for a slideshow of their award-winning property, and visit our website for a look at the Telluride Trek.
