Dunton Hot Springs can sleep a maximum of 44 guests. The luxury cabins range in size from one to five bedrooms, all provide heating and are beautifully funished. This perfectly restored ghost town thrives on contradictions: hand-hewn log cabins exquisitely furnished, a life-worn saloon serving food of startling quality, lung torturing trails followed by pampering massages, sensuous hot springs beneath shimmering snow banks. Free of cell phones, this romantic, old mining town still provides high speed wireless Internet access in every cabin and video conferencing in our dance hall to the comforting sound of a tumbling waterfall.

Nestled in the breathtaking San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies, Dunton Hot Springs and Cresto Ranch respond to their majestic alpine setting by providing guests with rustically elegant accommodations, luxurious appointments, exclusive hospitality, and an authentic Colorado glamping experience.

The River Camp accommodations are located at Cresto Ranch, formerly a cattle ranch back in the late 1800s. The original farmhouse from the time sits in its original location about 20 feet from the West Fork of the Dolores River and on approximately 500 acres of amazing fields, meadows and forest. A large part of the land is still used for free range cattle grazing, but the area where the tents and the farmhouse have been kept protected. The owners thought this property was perfectly suited to a summer-only tented camp. There are a total of eight tents, prospector style, sitting on a 640 square foot wooden platform anchored to the bedrock. Each tent has all the amenities you would expect in a luxury hotel, however you are in an actual (albeit very large) tent.

Insider Tips

  • The entire "town" can be rented out. It can accommodate up to 44 guests and has conferencing facilities. Great for large groups, weddings and corporate retreats.

  • Dunton Hot Springs is an actual historic ghost town, as in a town that was abandoned and has now been restored as a true, luxury, wild-west mountain retreat.
