The Dunton Hot Springs Resort is built on the site of an old ghost town in Southwest Colorado. Being partially renovated, this hundred-year-old town from the outside looks quite simple, but what you would find inside the resort’s wooden cottages is truly amazing and surprising.
The Dunton Resort consists of 13 separate cabins, located all over the colorful valley. Each cabin is unique, traditionally decorated and supplied with everything necessary for a lovely mountain vacation.
The Vertical Lodge is a large cottage, which can accommodate up to 6 people. It has two separate bedrooms with king-size beds, two beds in the loft and two bathrooms, one of which has an antique copper tub. This lodge is built out of big vertical timber, and the sounds of a nearby waterfall will bring the nature much closer to you.
Christy’s Tent is the newest accommodation at the Dunton Hot Springs Resort. The cottage has a tent made of cotton canvas spread over it, a vast porch with a gas stove, large shower and king-size bed, so it’s designed for two people.
The Dolores Cabin, located by the river, was originally built in 1880’s. It has a large deck, living area, gas stove, bathroom and a romantic wedding bed.
The Tipping Cabin is designed for families, it can accommodate up to 6 people. It is built on two floors, with two bedrooms with king beds and one bedroom with two twin beds.
The Dunton Store Cabin is one more pet-friendly cottage, which can comfortably accommodate 4 people. It has an outdoor private pool.
The New House Cabin is located in the center of the town. It is designed for 4 people, and equipped with a TV and DVD.
The Geysir, Well House, Major Ross, Forge, Echo and Bjoerkman’s Cabins are all designed for two people, having king beds and bathrooms with outdoor showers.
