It is with a certain sense of Colorado girl pride that I share with you this landscape destination. A Colorado ghost town turned knock your socks off landscape destination, Dunton Hot Springs has turned this tiny little frontier town into a beautiful Luxury resort. If you are craving the Rockies and have a helicopter at the ready, this is the place for you. And if not, well, you can join me in a little desktop travel for a peek at the spectacular scenery and the light but effective touch of the landscape designer (not sure who that is….) who helped create this beautiful place.
I have little to say…I think these pictures speak louder than words.
The nightly rates can be as extraordinary as the scenery , but if you have a group, there are cabins that sleep 10 whose rates could be quite reasonable when shared. Similarly, if you are looking to host a destination wedding, and have a Colorado Ghost Town backdrop in mind, their ‘rent the town’ rates are also worth considering.
These natural pools are so beautiful. I think about being that woman and I have this funny thought about being on the set of a Bonanza episode (OK so it’s not Nevada) and while I am having a relaxing break from my modern world, I daydream that Little Joe and Adam Cartwright ride up majestically to clean up in my beautiful little hot spring pool before continuing home from a long journey. Ahh, wouldn’t that be nice? I can see it, can’t you? 😉
Wow, this really makes me long for home. It really is the best of Colorado style and outdoor living in a simple and nature reverent way. Are you wishing you were here right now? I am. Fall is my favorite time of year, and I am sure the crisp air and aspen trees are beginning to be at their best.
