Dunton Hot Springs in Dolores, Colorado

Just across the mountain from Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs is a beautiful destination you will find difficult to ever leave. Located in a remote area of Dolores, Colorado and surrounded by the scent of Ponderosa pine, this rustic hideaway is situated near the "Four Corners" - the area where Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona intersect in the wilderness. The area, formerly a gold rush town, is now an enclave of 400-plus acres surrounded by a pair of national forests in the San Juan Mountains. The area is primed for an array of activities, including hiking, snowshoeing, heli-skiing and so much more.

Dunton Hot Spring's guest cabins are the real thing - 19th-century hand-hewn log buildings once occupied by miners and meticulously restored by local and Native American craftsmen. Each is unique, yet all share incredible views, luxurious amenities and completely private settings. The resort's lounge, dining area, hot springs, bathhouse, and massage and yoga rooms are all just a short walk away. Dining features gourmet preparation and ingredients, as acclaimed chefs serve up fresh seafood and organic beef, lamb and produce.

this place was beautiful due to the scenery and hot springs alone, but the people here are incredible. My wife and I went here for our honeymoon, and I cannot list the numerous ways in which they went way out of their way to ensure our honeymoon was the most magical experience we ever had. From the first correspondence over the phone to pulling out of their driveway, it's been the best experience either of us have ever had and we will most definitely be going back

The experience was unique and unforgettable. This is an amazing property, which is secluded and unique to other properties and that is why it is important before considering this property to know the details as I find it very surprising when some reviews find negative what makes this property unique. Before going to any resort it is important to do minimal research about it. The staff is exceptional and the general manager Sarah, was extraordinary. She is very attentive to detail and perfect for the position. Dunton Hot Springs is 2 hours from the airports of Telluride or Durango and it is in a secluded location which it is one of the main reasons of being so relaxing and unique. if you want to be close to restaurants, comercial centers and stores, you will need to consider Vail, Aspen, Jackson Hole, etc instead. This was a positive for us as we like secluded resorts. The property is part of Fine Hotels and Resorts, so you can benefit from early check in, late check out, and spa credit. The cabins are rustic, cozy and they are beautifully appointed. This might not be for everyone, however this is what makes this property unique and ideal to disconnect. There is no TV and cell phone signal is limited, which is part of the experience. Our cabin was the Dolores, which was next to the river and close to the main building. All the meals are included. The food is excepcional and it is part of the experience. There are some reviews that find negative the family meal setting with everyone sitting in the same table. Again, this is clearly stated in the web site and meals can be set in a private setting if desired. In this regard, I personally like the communal food setting, however I think would be better to have more individual tables and have breakfast and lunch, where everyone is sitting in their own table and then maybe a communal dinner. I do like that all guest share table, however I do like to spend time with my partner in a private setting as well. I know that this can be arranged, however it is awkward to request that when you share table during dinner and everyone else is sharing table. We were taken to the River Camp location for horse sleigh riding and it was an amazing experience, we had a fondue for lunch, which was great. We had great deep tissue massages. The bath house with the hot springs was very relaxing and as it is open 24/7, it can be enjoyed anytime. I imagine it can get a little bit busy if resort is full. Our experience at Dunton Hot Springs was unique, relaxing in a secluded location. I did like the family style dining, however a combination of private and communal dining would be more ideal. Excited to hopefully return soon and experience the River Camp tents.

My wife and I checked in to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. They picked us up in Telluride and drove us the 2 hours to the location. The views, cabins, and food all first class! We utilized everything the place had to offer, snowshoeing, fat biking, hot springs, ice climbing and more. The staff was fantastic some of the best service we have ever experienced. The food! My goodness the flavors and combinations top notch. I cannot say enough about how great this place is. Those chefs really know how to prepare wonderful meals.

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.
