Dunton Hot Springs
Must-do Experience? I'll always have a soft spot for skinny tires, but I have to admit: the mountain biking here is amazing!
Dunton provides the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. There are few feelings better than hiking in the high San Juans and then unwinding in a natural hot spring.
How to Get There
A number of major airlines provide daily service to the region through Durango, Telluride, Cortez and Montrose. We can make arrangements to have hotel staff meet you at one of these airports and drive you to Dunton, or you can rent a car and explore the area on your own as you make your way to the resort.

All of Dunton’s authentically restored log cabins are full of fascinating details. Each one is hand-built (in some cases by the original miners themselves) and lovingly restored, each possessing a distinct character. Tastefully decorated, they’re full of unique artifacts and furnishings. Every window affords magnificent views of the mountains and the surrounding meadows.
Well House CabinFrom $1,785 per night
Dunton’s only cabin built around a small, on demand hot spring, along with beautiful views of the mountains and a fire place to boot!
Echo CabinFrom $630 per night
The perfect sanctuary in the great outdoors. If being so close to nature while bathing isn't appealing, the steam shower in the bathhouse is only a short walk from your front door.
Potter HouseFrom $1,785 per night
The owner's former residence is an immensely comfortable family home. From almost every window the views of the surrounding peaks are simply stunning. A private retreat in itself. Can also be a long-term rental.
Vertical LogFrom $1,785 per night
This large, unique cabin was constructed out of big vertical cottonwood timbers. It has two rooms furnished with exquisite antiques, a sensational view of town and the mountains. Nothing could lull one to sleep better than the sound of the neighbouring waterfall.
Christy's TentFrom $1,365 per night
Dunton's newest addition, and only all-season tent, is constructed of cotton canvas and reclaimed materials from the 1830s. The tent boasts a spacious floor plan with gas stove, and luxurious appointments, while the over-sized, en-suite bath features a generous shower with striking views of the Wilson Mountain Range.
Major RossFrom $1,365 per night
A Dunton original. Close to the source of the hot springs and just steps away from the saloon. This cabin was built in the mid 1800s and is now beautifully restored and very comfortable for two people. Great views!
BjoerkmansFrom $1,365 per night
One of our oldest cabins, named after the Scandinavian miner who originally built it. This wonderfully cozy cabin for two has a clear view of the waterfall.
DoloresFrom $1,365 per night
An original Dunton cabin from the 1800s. Sitting beside the river, it has been beautifully restored and features a Rajasthan wedding bed. Perfect for romantic seclusion.
