Travel Fantasy: Dunton Hot Springs

Friday, February 11, 2011


My jaw dropped when I stumbled upon this picturesque Dunton Hot Springs resort. This resort can be found deep in the San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Rockies and guess what: its a perfectly restored ghost town with endless possibilities to have fun. From horseback riding, mountain biking to even fly fishing (have you even done that?). I would probably spend the whole weekend in their bathhouse sipping wine and taking hiking trips! Ohh and you can rent the whole tiny town. It can easily accommodate you and up to 42 of your friends. Wouldn't you love to stay there?

P.S: Check out this wedding that took place there!

P.P.S: More travel destinations.

This place has been on my travel wishlist now for quite awhile. Sometimes I just have to look at the photos and daydream. Funny little trivia about me? My hubby and I own a plot of land in a ghost town on the continental divide. Strange, huh?
Best,
Tina

Love to stay there! It reminds me a lot of my parents land in Western MD! I have yet to build my "dream cabin" but one day I will. Thanks for the inspiration! Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

What a cozy place. Would love to stay there during the HOT Texas summers.

Signe said...

I die! I have to go! Scatch that - I want to live like that!! *swoon*

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

That looks so, so amazing. The scenery is stunning.

I might give the fly fishing a miss. I've tried it three times (my Dad fishes) and I am hopeless at it. But being in the bathhouse with some wine and long hiking trips sound ideal.

SJ said...

i've seen this circulating and i'm totally obsessed as well!

hope you're having a lovely valentine's day, we;re going to try and make that one pan cookie you featured tonight :)
