About Us

Thank you for considering Dunton Hot Springs for this very important event. Could there be a more glorious setting for a wedding than an open air chapel beside a towering waterfall or a more romantic place to celebrate than in the saloon and dance hall of a beautifully renovated ghost town?

Dunton Hot Springs is an exclusive luxury resort with rustic southwest Colorado character and international artistic flare, situated in the heart of an extraordinary alpine valley.

From the rustic charm of the beautifully appointed cabins, to the natural splendor of the hot springs that surround them, Dunton most certainly serves as the perfect setting for a memorable event.

All of Dunton's twelve guest cabins are authentic nineteenth century hand-hewn log buildings, restored by local and Native American craftsmen who specialize in traditional building techniques. No two are alike, and each bears a distinct individual character and history. All are furnished with custom luxury amenities, and reveal splendid views that change throughout the day with the shifting colors of sunlight on the mountains. All are less than five minutes walk to the outdoor wedding chapel, bar, saloon, dance hall, hot springs and bath house, massage and yoga rooms in the Pony Express Stop, the bank of the West Fork of the Dolores river, waterfall, and the library. Wireless broadband Internet, video conferencing, and digital image production are also available.

Beyond the comfort of the town proper … the great outdoors - boasting some of the most breathtaking, rugged, pristine and surprisingly accessible terrain on the planet, with sweeping stands of aspen, 14,000 foot mountain peaks, alpine springs, rivers, lakes, and lush meadows. Activities range from a heavenly picnic-for-two to heli-skiing. Enjoy horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, snow shoeing, cross and back country skiing, and world-class fly fishing. Day trips offered include river rafting and kayaking, visits to Anasazi archeological sites or nearby vineyards, Monument Valley, the Canyons of the Ancients, and Mesa Verde National Park.

Everyone's favorite activity however, requires little effort … soaking in one of the five hot springs on the property. The large pool inside the exquisite bathhouse, the outdoor pool with majestic views of Mt. Wilson and El Diente, and "The Source", each unique, and all extraordinary.

Our chefs work closely with a network of local organic farms and ranches to source the ingredients for their imaginative and healthy cuisine, including organic peaches, pears, plums, local grass-fed lamb, and wild Boletus and Chanterelle mushrooms. Accompany the excellent food with first growth Bordeaux's from our extensive wine list, which includes Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay from Sutcliffe Vineyard, Colorado's preeminent and Dunton's own vineyard, located in nearby McElmo Canyon.

Dunton can arrange group or individual activity's that you may want to schedule for your guests, such as hiking, horseback riding, fly fishing, as well as many spa treatments.
